Monday morning 5:48 a.m. It's weigh in day. I stepped on my scale A-N-D. . . I lost 4 pounds!!!! I weigh 298! It 's the first time I've been below 300 pounds in years. I reached my goal plus one pound. I have one more pound to go and I will have lost 10% of my original weight. I'm walking on air.

Have a great day everyone. I have to go edit my profile.

Super job Tippurr and Karen! It feels great doesn't it.

I've been posting my weight loss daily as I'm scale obsessed. The total since last Monday is 6 pounds. I only started taking measurements 2 weeks ago. As of today I've lost a total of 8 inches. No wonder my clothes are getting baggy.

I'm down another 4 pounds too. At 208, onederland is in sight. The last time I lost any significant weight was about 4 years ago. I remember that I got to 199, and then started gaining again. That's not going to happen this time, I know it.

Did do my Body Flex workouts every day, (except this morning), but I will do it before dinner tonight when I get home from work. Had 2 good workouts at the ice rink Saturday night and also Sunday afternoon. I think flailing around trying to keep one's balance probably burns quite a few calories. Going again Tuesday night.

Great job everyone, happy dance for those who have hit "new lows". Can't wait till I get below 200. I hope I'm able to lose one more pound by WI day, but if not, I'm at least going to be able to post about how I excercised every day between now and then!

Yes, I think we should have a final weigh-in on Friday morning. I did not do well on this challenge. For a brief period of time I got below 280 but was back up to it again this morning. I had hoped I could get down to 272 during this challenge but I guess it wasn't meant to be. I haven't cheated and I've been exercising. I guess my body is very resistant to change. My clothes are feeling looser so I think the Body Flex is helping to firm me up but no change in inches. I don't know what's going on.
Congratulations to every one who has done so very well. I'm just so impressed with all of you.

Hey Linda,
You're the one with whom I'm impressed. In my book, it's a lot easier to stick with something when you're seeing tangible results. I honestly don't think I would be able to stick to this WOE, no matter how healthy it was for me, if I couldn't see the scale continuing to show lower and lower numbers. You're truly an inspiration.

I agree Linda. You are truly dedicated. I almost stopped it when I got into super-slow mode. Hang in there it will start coming off. One of my co-workers went 7 months with no loss. Her ketostix indicated that she was in ketosis the whole time. Finally she started losing again and has been ever since.
