Today I walked 150 minutes with DD in the rain. We had a blast of a good time. Eating was a little bit off. I will weigh in in the morning.

Will really try to get back on the wagon, so this month I'm aiming to lose 8.8 (lucky numbers) pounds. Might be unrealistic since I tend to lose very slow, but I will give it a shot anyway.

Down one so far, not too shabby! TOM just ended, so that may have helped a bit =D Also, this is only the end of my first full week calorie counting, so I'm hoping that I'll drop some quicker this month.

My first mini-reward to myself is a new dress if I can make it to this Friday staying within my calorie goals and tracking them (that will mark the first two full weeks). I'm excited, I already have one picked out. It's made from recycled sari silk and it's $15 at this little free trade shop near me. Can't wait!

I also told myself I could buy a cute accessory to go with the dress for my four week mark =D

Hi Chicklets, I'm back from my weekend away for DH's (and his sister's and his brother's) birthday parties, and overall, I'd say it was pretty bad. Not really terrible since I still watched and tracked everything, but I went over my cals quite a bit. I didn't bother to weigh there since the scale difference wouldn't have told me anything anyway. I'll weigh in in the morning and post my start weight for May. I'm hoping I'm not up too much from the weekend of eating and drinking. I'm feeling really snacky, and the sugar is in my system, calling to me to eat more, dang it. It may be PMS, too.

Beaka: How was the 5K? Did you enjoy it enough to want to do it again?

MsP: Are you back? How'd you do? I definitely didn't eat out of control, but I didn't plan out my meals and eat only that (I couldn't really, not knowing what we would be eating). So I didn't really worry about how many calories I was consuming, and just recorded everything as best I could. It's scary to think of how much I COULD have eaten if I really didn't care! And that is exactly why I have to track everything. Forever and ever, amen. Ugh.

I'm doing my daily check in (one of my goals for May).
I sure have been in a bad place for the last few months.
I've been completely out of control with my eating. I up 4lbs. from Friday - 268.6 - probably it's mostly water.
priority in my life.
I spent some time this morning taking measurements and photos. Oh my.......lots of room for improvement and success.

Hope everyone has a good OP day. I'm off to make a big salad and dig a chicken breast of of the freezer

I am up for a challenge. I could use some more motivation.

I am so good at staying on track Monday-Friday afternoon and then

So, my goal is to hit 205 by the end of May.
Stay on track over the weekend. Tired of the 4 pound loss during the week and 2 pound gain over the weekend. Just think how well I'd do if I could stay on track.
More water! Walk twice this week, either before work or at lunch.

Good morning all!

I just wanted to say it was so nice to have all the people checking in at the end of last month's (April) Challenge. Even when we don't reach goal it's good to see how we did and make adjustments to improve if necessary. Here's to a better May! It's awesome to have all you with us this month! I'm too far behind to name everyone individually, but each of you are important and vital to all of us staying motivated and on track for the month!!

As for me, I was baaaaaaaaaad this past, the worst I've been since I started this life change a year and a half ago I think. No worries though. It was a mistake, but always a learning experience. Now, back on plan, I can move in the right direction for the remainder of the month. I seriously feel like I'm on detox since my poor body didn't know what to do with all the crap I put into it all weekend. I'm happy to move on though, so what's done is done. Just figured I'd share since some of you knew I was gonna have one of those weekends. The rest of the month has some challenges, and I'm allowing myself 2 other (non-consecutive) days of off plan eating. The rest needs to be and will be OP. That should spell success for May. No sabotaging myself. It's a busy month, but I can't be using that as an excuse to ease up on food or exercise.

After a week of almost no lost, today the scale showed me a pound less. I have never think that to see a 166.4 in the scale will feel so good. I hope to never see that 167 again!!!
SW: 167.4
CW: 166.4 (1.4/6.4 to go)
GW1: 165
GW2: 160

I'm in again this month for sure!

My May goals are:

- Below 190lbs by end of May
- Deep Water workout at LEAST twice a week
- 30 minutes of exercise on non-pool days at LEAST twice a week

I did the pool on Saturday and worked out at home with free weights yesterday so I'm half-way for this week.

DH's job fell through...I guess they couldn't wait for him to grieve his mother's death and filled the position. Nice! Now the last place he worked is messing around with his vacation pay and record of employment. Being a payroll professional I just can't get over when people do this kind of stuff. I feel like going in there and asking if they could maybe be just a little nit human as we have enough crap on our plates right now without them making it worse! Whatever....thank god for rainy day money! Everyone send out some good vibes for DH to find another job ASAP. LOL

Hope everyone is doing well and up for a challenge in May! We can all do this, no matter what bad stuff happens, no matter who says we can't or tries to push us to skip workouts or eat "bad" food...we are the only ones truly in control and WE CAN DO IT!

LouisaH- Thanks for asking! The race was amazing!!! 3 miles of muddy/ obstacle filled craziness. I can't even express to ya'll how great I felt after finishing, especially when I think of the shape I was in just a year ago. Also, I just wanted to say that still tracking your food from the parties was a HUGE step. When I used to get off plan, I would stop tracking and fall off the wagon totally. You're aware, and you're right back on plan. That's great.

Ms Perception- I have no doubt that you will be right back on plan too.

I'm feeling good today. I went out to PF Changs yesterday but still stayed within plan and went to the gym. I had the coconut curry vegetables with brown rice and it was SO good. I even had a mini red velvet cake dessert (within calories). And I tracked my calories.

I weigned in this morning at 193.4, so it's coming back down after that spike. I got the Jillian No More Trouble Zones DVD, so I'm gonna try it out tonight. I also did a SparkBlog yesterday, so I'm on plan with posting there at least 1x per week. I have my first run with the running club tomorrow evening.

Hi everyone! My weight is hanging in here - Aunt Flo is here for a visit, so I'm not expecting much loss this week. I'm retaining water pretty badly, so hopefully I'll get a woosh in a few days. My back is finally starting to feel a little better - i was actually able to play at the park a bit with my kids this morning. I don't feel up to official excercise yet, because I really don't want to make it worse. It's just nice to be able to stand up straight for a change!
