Good Morning! Boy, I would like to be sleeping in today! This past week has been crazy to the point of my not logging in any of my food on Fitday, so I was a bit worried to weigh in this morning, but I am down 1 pound, so yeah! Had an event this weekend where I hadn't seen some people I knew for awhile and got comments that I looked like I lost weight, so that was nice.
Hope everyone else had a good week, and I look forward to having the time to read all this past weeks posts and caught up on how you all are.
Mambo, Even though WE know we're doing the work, it is so nice when we get positive feedback from others. Enjoy!
Andrea, sounds like you watched your nutrition even if you didn't log it. Congrats on the 2#!
As for me, I am making slow but steady progress. I've stayed consistent with exercise and am mixing up my weights from moderate to hard days. Hopefully that will help me add more strength. The scale finally read 119 this morning, so breaking that 120 barrier was a pleasant surprise. I know it will rise as the day goes on, but I enjoyed seeing it again! Tummy measured 27" and thigh measured 19", so I'm heading in the right direction. Weekends are usually my most challenging times, nutritionally speaking. So that will be my next goal.
Looking forward to reading more from everyone!

Great job, Andrea, Beth, and Mambo! And also to Julia on your loss last Thursday at WW weigh-in. It's great to see your posts; they are so motivating .
Steady week here...the biggest thing was having to be flexible...meals not as planned, last minute changes, exercise plans rained out, etc. I tried to roll with it and I think I did ok after the initial "clutch."
Yesterday I ordered my bathing suits online. Got one regular and one bikini (the first one in my life). We'll see how it fits when it comes. Just having enough confidence to order it was a big step.

Reached goal 4/16/2010...but kind of afraid to look these days
Andrea and Mambo* Congrats on getting that stubborn scale to move! No small task!
Beth* Only 1 lb. to goal!!! You're almost there! All of your hard work has paid off. I'm sure you look wonderful!
Cassie* You go girl with that bikini! I have one, but I usually just wear it in places where I need a passport! lol
As for me, and as for all of us it sounds, busy end of the year school schedules, among other things, have made it difficult to continue logging and planning ahead. But, the good news is that it seems that we're all determined to find solutions to the bumps in the road. I'm convinced that without this means of support, many of us would have slipped back into old habits by now. So, again, thank you for your support and encouragement as I now add my 10 week mark.
Reached 30 lb. Weight Loss Goal April, 2010
Fighting The Battle to Maintain
After three weeks of being scared to weigh in I finally did. 120.0. Granted, this is the same as when i started, but at least now I am finally holding myself accountable and fitday can help determine my baseline caloric needs. I promise to weigh in every week no matter what!
Hi Ladies, my first check-in and I am only only down 1lb! I'm in the middle of exams at the moment so haven't been focused enough. Got plenty of exercise in but unfortunately it's all about the calorie intake! Going to stick to 1,200 cals for the next week and hopefully I'll be reporting a bigger loss next week.
