"I decided that I needed a new start..." You picked the right place, Libby -- this week's theme: New Week, New Start! Yay! "I am so glad to be a part of this group..." and we're glad you're here, too! "...and you have made me feel like I matter..." You DO matter!!!

"...I am here for the long haul..." That's the spirit! Ready? Let's go!

Default Monday

  • Calories Avg. < 1400 /day: 2271

  • Vegetables > 3 / day: 2
  • Protein > 50 g / day: 97

Last week made 4 of 6 goals above. Missed on calories (1472 avg,) & veggies (2.4 avg.) Going to be hard to dig out from Monday's deficit (calorie overdose?) this week.

Picking back up from the last thread ...

Epixi: Congrats on your second 'blue' week! And Don't be too envious of my working regimen. I can do planks, but I'm with you on the push ups! I can push up, but the let down thing is another matter. Last year I had 'A proper push-up' as one of my goals, but I gave up on that! Basically, I can do one. Yes, one. On a good day. Sometimes even two. Now I count them if they are within 2-3 inches from the floor. If I try to touch nose-to-floor I get a flat nose. So my push-ups aren't perfect, but I am on my toes! Oh, and with the black-eyes, Peas, that is, try using chicken broth, some onion and garlic.

ian: No, I don't speak Dutch. I could understand it fairly well after being there a while, but never could wrap my tongue around the gutturals.

- Donna

Welcome n00bies!

I'm here, late but better late than never. I weighed in and I'm back up to 190.4. Well I'll blame it on my daughter and Tori. Well my daughter wanted crawfish yesterday and fried skrimp poboys the other day and being the good dad that I am, I made it happen and I joined in. I'm also blaming Tori, well because it's Tori and what would a week be like if I didn't blame her for something. Last night she told me about some good stuff she was eating and it made me hungry and triggered a feeding frenzy! Seeing that she's be MIA for so long, I doubt she'll come back to defend herself which makes it even better. Soooo the damage was the 190.4

I'm going to attempt daughter is still home to lose 3 pounds.

Default day 2

I walked 1.56K at a higher intensity. The diet is going well. I am hoping for a 2 pound loss this week. We don't know what we are capable of till we try.
Debbie: Some day I will run a 5K

Debbie: What weight were you when you started running? I can't run farther than between a few telephone poles and I am hoping as I lose weight
I will be able to run more. I am under my calorie allowance for the day but I didn't exercise as long either. Things are going well this week both with diet and exercise. We can do this.
