Yeah, I did the last one and it really kept me motivated. I was at a frustrating plateau last week even though I was not eating extra calories and had upped the workouts (running a 5K nearly every day). This morning I finally saw another pound gone on the scale. I've lost nearly 67 pounds so I need to tell myself it won't come quite as quickly for the next 67 pounds, but when I look at these results I can tell I'm still on track.
I'm down 13 pounds since 6/20...AND I've lost 7 inches since 7/13 . I just found out that my uncle died today though, so hopefully none of it comes back. He had been in ICU since 7/1, but all the Dr.s and nurses said that he had improved drastically in the past week or so, so it was still a shock to my system! Unlucky for me, I'm an emotional eater, and the next few weeks will definitely fit in that category .
Sorry for the downer, hope everyone else is doing well.

What I've learned along the way:
Just because no one sees it, doesn't mean it doesn't count
Recognizing when you're facing a challenge is half the battle. Emotional eating is a big trap for most of us. Times around funerals are very hard because we need something to make us feel good and food makes us feel good. Just make sure you go with a plan on the food and you'll make it.
I have a wedding this weekend and rehearsal dinner plus reception is something I really have to plan for. So much food coming at me. I checked out calories on line for the restaurant at rehearsal dinner and I knew exactly what I could have. Skipped lunch so I could have a little more.
Started at 300 lbs., now at 221, going for 150.
Slowly getting in the right direction. Birthdays, graduations, holidays, vacations. They seem out to get me! Though if I can make it through the next two weeks till school starts back up for kids I'll have made it over a major hurdle and the rest will be so much easier!
Hey, guys, thanks! It's been a very trying summer for me on a number of levels. Work is starting back up and I hope I'm getting a handle on everything, eating plan included. Congrats to everyone who did well on the 4th of July challenge and let's kick some butt for Columbus Day!
