This is a great idea! I'm going to join in. Here's my goal:

stay under 1400 net calories (food-exercise). Reviewing the last 21 days on myfitnesspal, I've gone over 4 times, so let's make this a level 2. Hopefully I won't need all the pauses!

I'll start with the day that just ended:

1: (2/7) Net:1149

Thanks for the welcome, luvcats! Way to go making it halfway with no pauses!

I ate really lightly for most of the day, and after a trip to the gym for elliptical and weights I got to treat myself to a veritable feast: avocado, edamame, hummus, sweet potato, a cup of soup, AND a banana almond chocolate soy milk smoothie. I know it's better to have smaller meals more often or front load the day's calories, but it was SO good :-)

Today was not a lot of exercise, I do that sometimes...lucky I didn't overdo my goals...it's nice to succeed at something once in a while. Also, down one to 261!! Was going to go to the gym tomorrow (today) but it's going to be a mighty snowstorm, so I'm going to try and go out w the kids to play. I don't love cold, my snow pants didn't fit so I might not last long....argh . Oh, I did blow up my yoga ball the other day, it amuses me....I like to bounce around on it sorta like those hopper balls...lol I'll check back in later, good luck and to all!!

I used to be... From about 8 to 16 years old. Then I turned out to be a better musician than athlete, and I couldn't juggle all day Saturday competitions with all day Saturday rehearsals. Unfortunately I'm forever cursed with a synchro body- do a google image search, you'll see girls with fairly thin torsos and enormous thighs and upper arms.

Congrats on the big weight loss! Good for you!

I was going to be so good until my roommate ordered a pizza. Luckily it's pizza hut, which I don't actually really like. But I still ate a slice and a half. Still under my goal!

My daughter does it competitively now (she's only 7) and has her first major competition coming up. What's funny is that it seems I am cursed with synchro body too (I've never done it, just my genes are to have a small upper body with big thighs), LOL, so my daughter is doomed
