Thanks for the reminder, jdoneil!

And congrats Ruth, looks like you are heading in the right direction.

I am still holding at 201. But I am kicking it in gear today.

I've not been posting chickies, but I'm here! Will you let me join back in? Pleez?

My goal is to stick with the gym at least three times a week and a 20-25 lb weight loss!

I'll weigh myself at the gym tomorrow and see if I've lost anything in the last couple weeks. Somehow me thinks NOT !

Way to go all you losers!

Sorry I asked about this in the daily, guess if I'd just looked!!
Is it too late to join in on this one??

I'm wondering if my goal is a little excessive...any opinions?

I would like to be down 2 clothes sizes by July 4th.
It will be our first 4th back in the states in four years, and my sons first real 4th celebration, so we're planning on a pool party, bar-b-que and the whole sha-bang...I don't expect to be in a suit in front of everyone, but a pair of shorts two sizes smaller would be so nice!!

Is that possible or am I dreaming?

McMom, 2 sizes seems like alot to me. But 2 sizes for me would be about 30-40 pounds...I guess...I know nothing! I think for the "normal" sizes it is 10 pounds per size! Do the best you can!!!

I got weighed in today, down 2.2 for a total of 27.2 since 1/31 and down 9 since the beginning of this challenge. I really really would like to be in the 2 teens by the 4th. TEENS....sounds soooooooo nice!!!!!

Way to go Peachie! You Joisey Sisters are kicking butt! I think what you two have slid it's way down to Tx and found me!

Two dress sizes for me would be about 20 -25 lbs IF I lose some in the busty department!

Not planning on weighing until Monday but I can zip a pair of shorts up today that I couldn't two weeks ago! Loosing that fluffy feeling can be very encouraging! Think I'll celebrate with a slice of lemon in my water!
