I know the month is half over but I would like to jump in...I have been off the radar for a little while, mostly out of frustration from lack of weight loss but still determined to get healthy. This months goal will be to get to 235 which is only a pound away but since the month started I have lost 5 lbs and one more will be greatly appreciated and just what I need to rev my motivation.

Good luck everyone! I hope that each day brings you closer to your goals!

Super congrats to Jacqui and Tuscany!!!! Onderland and lowest in a decade are HUGE accomplishments!!! Have lots of dancing things!

Turtle just keep it up and I am sure you will slide right through... and if you don't, well keep it up and you will have a BIG woosh when your body finally gives in

BG woot on making your Aug goal! So are you gonna set a stretch goal? or just see how far you make it?

WELCOME minoja!!

So yesterday I did really well with the hopes to see a new number today. I went and power-walked around the mall near my DH's work because I had to bring him his badge. I had never been inside before, they had too many tempting things, but I said no to everything except some starbucks after my walk!

8/2: 250.6
8/3: 250.2
8/4: 251.4
8/5: 251.6

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE CONGRATS on MY NSV!!!

@PixiCat
I never asked how your DnD night went with the new group. I have a hard enough time to get my friends to play monopoly. Also congrats onkeeping your will power!!

@Tuscany
CONGRATS on the low weight of the century!!!!! Bet you feel great!!!!

@turtle
Im starting to think weight loss is like a ball bouncing down the stairs, not linear like we all want

@Jacqui
CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!! Wtg!!!!!!

@joy:
Wow!!!! Your doing so well!!!!!!

@bg
CONGRATS!!!!!

@lene
I know!!! I gook outmy size 8's and just stared at them thinking "one day soon"!!!! I have this sweater i can't wait to get back into.

So I weighed in at 177.2 but im still on my size ten high. Today i had my first session of lazer tattoo removal and OMG!!!!! I have never felt such pain. It was so bad that i was getting that long black tunnel. I understand now what it means to see stars. Mind you my tattoo is about 10" between my shoulder blades. It honestly feels like someone is using a redhot iron poker on your back. Icame home and took a vicoden. The tech said the first session is the worst..... my LORD!!!!! Im going to post before and afters if anyone is intrested.

bleumaus D&D went well, it is run through the game shop nearby so it was only 2 hrs so I just ate some string cheese before going and had a water bottle so food wasn't an issue. It seems like a good group, we did character creation so we'll see how it goes once we are in the thick of things.

Yikes! It was really that painful?!?! You are making me nervous lol I have two tattoos I want to get fully removed (young and stupidly trusted a friend of a friend who was 'apprenticing') I would definitely love to see the before and afters once it is done, also lemme know if other sessions are as painful

SO much good news all around yesterday!

First and foremost, Congratulations to Jacqui for making it to ONE-derland. That's ONE-derful news and deserving of two carrots!

Congrats also to Gardener for finally seeing a "78" on the scale! I hope the scale begins every day this month with those numbers.

More congrats to Pixi for getting back into the 240's!

And last but never least, congratulations to bg124 for achieving August's goal already...good for you!!

Turtle: I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you and I both see a whoosh soon.

Lene: Welcome back! Gotta love your attitude…my fingers are crossed for a whoosh for you too. And, BTW, your closet sounds like mine!

Leah: No doubt your whoosh will come when TOM is finished. In the meantime you've seen great results so far this month.

Bleu: Glad you're still on a size 10 high. The tatoo removal sounds painful. I hope the next sessions are not as bad.

minoja75: Welcome and good luck with that last pesky pound…every pound counts!

So had something happened to me when I got to work, the girl who I work with that is a little over weight said she is going to join a gym. I said ok cool, good for you. I got my tattoo faded yesterday, she said she wants to do the same with hers....The copy-cat thing is really annoying. When I first started on my healthy diet, she tried joining in. I don't know what happened but she started eating chicken nuggets and mashed potatoes everyday and gained more than she had previously lost. Since she's much younger she copy's everything I do, but this gym thing kind of got me really annoyed. I don't quite know why. All I know is that I don't want her to go to my gym. I see her 8 hours a day, and she is really clingy, she wants to hang out with me ALL the time and I kinda just want to tell her to f*** off. But since I work with her I cant.

Thanks everyone!! And guess what? I woke up this morning and I've lost 2 more lbs!!! 2 whole lbs overnight! I moved my scale around 3 times to see if it would change, and every time it came up the same! I just can't believe it! Now, I fully expect to get stuck at 197 for a while. I believe 197 is a set point for my body, so I think it will take a while for it to work its way past that, but I am just so excited!

Thanks Turtle! I can't tell you how great it feels to be back in the 100's! Congrats on the scale movement!

Woohoo on the 78-ish, a new low, Joy!

Bg, way to go on meeting this month's goal! I'm glad it's given you a new motivation to be mindful during vacation! Keep going!

Lene, your time is coming! I think I'm beginning to appreciate the stall, because I can see it brings good things once it lets go! :

Hang in there, Leah. That scale will get to moving soon!

Hi Minoja! Good to have you! We're a chatty bunch, so jump right in!

Thanks for the dancing things, Pixikat, lol! They made me smile. Great job staying OP and moving that scale!

Yay on the drop, Tray!

Wishing you a more bearable experience on that laser treatment, Bleu! As for your co-worker, I know that it can be bothersome not to feel like you can get away from work with her coming to your gym, and clingy personalities can be very annoying, but she must admire you a great deal, and maybe she doesn't have anyone else to serve as a positive role model in her life. Just take it as a compliment, and try not to let the idea of her copying you bother you.

Thanks for the carrots, Tuscany, lol! I have no doubt you will start that drop down again soon!

Good morning!! Everyone seems to be doing great ot holding steady at the very least, congrats!

Today I am holding steady with yesterday's weight. DH's paycheck had some sort of snag, got mailed instead of direct deposited, so our cheat meal has been postponed until it comes so maybe I will see a new low over the weekend

Especially since my legs are KILLING me from my new body weight workout since my gym groupon expired. OMG i now remember why I avoid lunges (which means I NEED to be doing them not avoiding them lol)
