ahh i just wrote up a semi long post and then lost it. i'm interning for a govt agency this semester and I they have so much security on their comps that I think it makes this site extra clunky. ugh.

beth--congrats on the 1 lb! that is wonderful. you are such a great role model for being consistent with your new lifestyle. slow and steady wins the race.

cassie--i swear bikinis are more flattering than once piece suits, atleast for my body type. congrats on the purchase, i just know you will look great in it!

mjones--1lb is great for hte first week!! wonderful job!

quinn--10 weeks of maintenance! you are certainly an inspiration to me. it's fantastic that you have kept the weight off. i hope to be there one day. maybe in a month.

toobeautiful, maybe you did lose weight but you don't know it because you aren't sure where you started from! great work on keeping up with fitday and posting to our forum i love keeping with everyone!

This week I lost the 1 lb that I gained last week..... I can't remember the last time I logged my foods so I'm rather surprised that I lost the lb.

Congrats on all of your wonderful results ladies!

Just wanted to post that I am so proud to be associated with this group of ladies! You are all doing a great job and I am inspired each time I check in on Tuesdays. Whether we're looking to decrease body fat, build strength or maintaining, I know we are leaps and bounds ahead of where we were a few short months ago. There is real power in this collective body of women!

PS: I like bikini's too, and only wear mine at the beach. People stare at the local pool and I feel too self conscious.

Right on, Beth! I know I could not do it and keep doing it without all of you! I put that in my gratitude post today

Yes, the bikini is for the beach...in another state...where I don't know anyone...and will never see them again...and definitely NOT for the neighborhood pool !

(If I actually keep it!)

Great job this week on getting over hurdles (both time, scale, physical and mental), ladies!

Congrats to all of you girls! You all have made this journey so much easier to do. I don't know what I would do without our weekly check ups and our group. Cassie, I have a bikini for the summer too. A little scared to wear it though, especially around my friends that are tiny. We do a lake trip every summer and they told me last summer that I was wearing an old lady suit, so I caved to the peer pressure and bought a bikini. We'll see if it makes it out this summer

Keep up all of the great work everyone. Even if you only see a little loss, it's a step in the right direction.

I have a bikini I bought in Kauai a year ago...it was just way too hot there! I wear it in the back yard .... I even take the top off...no one can see me....I have to be ok with my body and my self from time to time....we are one, after all (our bodies, our selves). I'm certain that without your clothes, and your cultural expectations, including mine, we are all, beautiful!

Hi ya all,

I'm a newby to this site and to the forum and am still trying to work it all out. I'm intending to lose 15-20 lbs, some of which I've been carrying around throughout my college years and some which I mainly gained while writing my thesis.

So, this is my first check-in and I haven't lost any weight yet. Mind you, I only started counting calories and incorporating exercises into my daily routine yesterday, so I'm hopeful I'll be reporting some kind of weight loss next week.

Best wishes!

Starting Weight: 130 (27 April 2010)
Current Weight: 130
Goal Weight: 115
Height: 5.5

Hi Ladies,
I went to WW today and I lost 0.4lbs. Wowwwww! haha. yes. i'll mark that as a success since I'd be really upset if that was a gain, so I should be just as happy that it's a loss! right??

On Wed. nites I have a class where we meet to talk about our internships and the supposed perk is that they give us pizza and chocolate. For some reason this pizza always tastes like the best pizza ever invented. I try to only have 2 but last night I had 4. The toppings were really fantastic, lots of veggies and interesting ideas for making my own at home (that's the positive spin). Likely if I hadn't downed 4 slices I would have a more substantial loss.

But in all honesty I'm very happy with a loss of any kind and that I can share it with you guys! It's sometimes hard for me to contribute at WW meetings because most members are very overweight and so I feel guilty or something about my weight. So thank you ladies for being there to read my contributions

Molly Sue-- Of course you can join! Tuesdays are the day that everyone else weighs in.
