Ok, chubby, I see, 100 situps. No, I'm not from Tokyo, though I've been here so long, I've been here longer than a lot of young Japanese! I'm originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, just always had a big shot of wanderlust and that got me living in Germany and India before here. How about yourself? What's up in Qatar?

Hey Red, I'm in on this challenge. My challenge will be to do Walk Away the Pounds three or four walk every day. I need this bad. Today will be day 2 for me and I look forward to knocking out the other nineteen days. I will be checking in here on a daily basis to see what everyone else is doing. Have a great weekend!

Smile hello all.........

Good morning, people. Starting out Day 2 here. Still have to write up some of what I ate yesterday, but I can remember it. Not a great day eating but as long as I'm writing it down and adding it up, that's a big thing for me. It's this constant "looking the other way," closing my eyes to what I'm putting in my mouth and then screaming "Foul" when the scale inches up and my clothes "shrink" that is what I want to rout out. Onward, march!

chubby -- how are you doing? Tokyo is OK. I can't say I really like it. But I guess I must like it enough to have stayed here over 20 years. It gets under your skin I guess. No city like it, just so big and run so efficiently and the masses of people. Have you been exercising? That was your challenge, right?

curlylocks -- welcome Glad to have your aboard. Good luck walking. How do you figure your distance walking? Do you have a course or use a pedometer? Oh, and yes, you get a big prize for completing three weeks straight........a fantastic sense of accomplishment and satisfaction AND the chance to start all over again!!!

Sub! -- Welcome over here! Glad to see you. Good luck on your walking. You can do it!

Everyone else, are you still with us? Come in and tell us how it's going.

I'm a few days behind but i would love to join in on the challenge; 21 days. I usually use the treadmill at the gym and lately started using the eliptical machine. I struggle with keeping track of what i eat as well especially when I'm at work.

Hi silver, yes, of course, you can join. There is absolutely no starting point for this other than the time YOU start. Everyone will be on different days, and some will be starting over and over again. That's the thing about it. You have to try and make a clear run of 21. Every time you trip up you have to go back to START.

So, what's your challenge? Remember, it has to be something you can do EVERY day for 21 days straight. So, are you going to do the same as me -- keeping track of your eating....that is my big pitfall.....i "forget" all the things that have snuck into my mouth.

hi dakota, good to hear from you. Congratulations on getting to Day 4. You're beating us all, I think. Yes, treadmills are boring. I don't mind the gym so much because you can watch TV and watch the people coming and going but if I had a treadmill at home I don't think I would use it. Outside walking is the best. Maybe you can invest in great rain gear, feel like you're out hiking.

Well...gym is out for me. Can't stand being aruond all the jocks at my uni campus. Within 5 minutes of walking in, they will start making comments. And can't afford a curves membership, so home is all i've got. I thuoght about getting rain gear, but then realized that this is San Antonio, and it FLOODS when it rains. So normally when it rains, I head to one of the malls and walk around window shopping for a few hours. It lets me get a little walking in at least.

Ok, dakota, I didn't know where you were. Hmm. sounds tough. But the mall is a great idea. When up against obstacles, always think, "What CAN I do?" I think you're making the best of a tough situation. Power to you.

I'd like to join in. I'm going to try to do 100 sit-ups everyday. Is that doable? I hope so. It's not too late to join is it?
