Week 1: 138
Week 2: 138
Week 3: 136

So the damage was done a little more than I thought. Once I got in my water and rehydrated it showed up. I'm ok with it simply because I am the one who made poor choices. Now its time to focus on my weightloss.

W 100 oz
E 2 miles/ 60 min class~35 minutes cardio/10 row machine/weights
E 1400 cals.
D Grocery Shopping.

MamaP~ Great losses so far you are totally rocking it!!

E~First hour and a half done. Now I'm just waiting for "busytown" to open so I can go back 830 and get the rest in.

editing~E~Got in my second workout. I saw a friend of mine at the gym. She just wanted to chat. I didn't want to be rude, but I needed to finish my workout. Then she kept looking me up and down. (she did the same thing a month ago when I saw her.) She asked for advice on her workout so I gave her some Then I HAD to move on. I didn't mean to be rude, but I am their to workout not socialize.

This is conference week. Yay. I know how brilliant Makenna is, but I like to see her scores and stuff.

Hey ladies -

This challenge is almost over already - I can't believe it! I don't think I'll hit the 155 I was hoping for but I think I've lost maybe a few pounds - we'll see. Doing good, work is insane so between that, the kids and household stuff I feel like I've hardly had time to breathe lately.

Jeni - hope you had a great vacation!

MamaP - awesome losses, keep it going!

Mindy - I feel you, losing is hard - harder than I remember it being the last time around. Keep it up, hopefully you like the Gruve

It's late so I'll just do tomorrow's WEED:
W - 64+
E - really hoping this rain lets up and I can take a nice long walk with the boys
E - OP, plan my meals and stick to it
D - work on one 'mess' that's stressing me out tomorrow (there are so many, you can definitely tell where my kids and husband have been)

Hey ladies -

It is been a long time and I know that you are almost done with this challenge but I felt like the daily WEED helped me so I would like to try this again.

I let myself eat badly when I got sick mid-December and through the holidays. They got even worse in January when my office was letting the wrong people go from their jobs. Ever since I can't seem to stop gorging myself in the evenings and on the weekends.

Thanks for your support.

Okay here is my WEED for today-

W - 56 oz. of water
E - 30 minutes of exercise
E - 1400 calories
D - brush my teeth early so I am less likely to eat

I hope you are all doing well.

Hi everyone! Just a quick post to get my focus back. I've had a tough 10 days between a very bad cold (stlll have it some), TOM started Monday and just everyday "stuff." Good news is that I'm still in the 160's (168 this a.m.) and have hope I can still hit 165 by Easter. Will post later...

Have a great day all! Jeanette

Good morning.

As before I will try to report on my previous day's WEED that is part of what helps me stick with it by knowing I will be "accountable".

I did better than expected on the exercise - I ended up walking 3.2 miles after work on a bike trail. Met the water goal which is good because when I don't write it down I don't hydrate nearly enough. I actually came in around 1200 calories but that was due to coming out of my dog class totally frustrated with our lack of progress. I called an out of state mentor and we ended up chatting until 10:30 pm so there was no time to eat anything anyway.

In the midst of trying to get refocused on my weight I have been reassessing my training with the dog. We are trying to overcome a bad foundation and me making my criteria for him consistent and clear which has not always been the case in the past. I don't want to give up as he is four and a half and in his athletic prime but some days the lack of progress gets frustrating.

The other component that seems to be getting to me and I am sure to lots of people is this very long dreary winter. Sunshine where are you?

Thanks for listening to me sing the blues.

Jenni - I like that mentality of focusing on your daily WEED instead of a particular weight loss goal.

Today's WEED -

W - 64 oz.
E - 30 minutes
E - 1200 - 1300 calories
D - work on jumping exercise with the dog

Hope you all have a good WEED day.

Week 4: 178
Week 5: 177.6
Week 6: 177

Well at least it went down a little bit. I didn't stay completely on plan last week. I caved on some ice cream and 2 cupcakes toward the end of the week. I do great during the day, but tend to eat to large of a portion for dinner. I think once I fix that I will begin losing again. We'll see.

Jeanette - Hope you feel better soon! I was sick for almost a month, the older I get the longer these things seem to linger

Onestar - good luck with your weigh in

Popcorn - I agree that the winter months make it hard to be positive and focused sometimes. I usually just want to curl up on the couch with some hot tea, makes you crave the 'comfort' things...food, inactivity etc... I'm so glad spring is here

Jeni - Hope you got everything done!

Kasey - Hey, 3 pounds is 3 pounds, more than 0 - that's how I look at it - congrats!

Today went OK, ate a little too much candy (darn Reisens - I love those things!) Dan's working late so I'm trying to figure out what to make for dinner that doesn't involve drive thru. On a side note, doesn anyone know how to cook beets? I love them and bought some at Whole Foods yesterday, but sadly don't know how to prepare them. Hope everyone has a great rest of their day!

W - 64+
E - walking with the kids
E - eat healthy for the remainder of the day
D - today's mess, the front hall closet (insert dramatic music here...)
