Sorry so late posting, MollySue! This was truly the day from Hades!

How are you doing?

Anyway, exercise has been good this week. Still trying to get back on track from Thanksgiving; I'm up 3 pounds but my clothes still fit so no need to panic.

I did my first 5K on Saturday evening, so that was exciting. I posted on another thread that it was not great because of the chilly weather and drizzle, but I did finish and that was a thrill. I had a goal in my mind and missed it by about a minute, so that was disappointing, but it was fun overall. Then on Sunday in the darn deep freeze and wind I had to play a tennis match, and last night had one, too. I don't think I'll ever be warm again! I took tonight off!

Hi Cassie, hi Kaitlin,

so good to hear how both of you are doing.

Cassie, you did your first 5 k race!!! I'm so excited for you!! CONGRATS!
Kaitlin, congrats on that weight loss and enjoy the family visit! I love visiting families on Christmas and eating out with friends - for me, that's the best part about the holidays.

Since last night our streets are covered in snow again and I really enjoy the look of it. The downside is I'm supposed to run 8 k tonight and I just know that I will be soo exhausted. Running through snow is almost like running through sand. Still looking forward to it, really in the swingn of things now.

Take care!

Molly,

Things are going well with me- shopping is pretty much done and i took off this friday to get some last minute trinkets! The holiday season brings many things to light- i feel so thankful for my job, my friends and family.

Now on the other hand..i am up one pound from last week...I am trying not to be so hard on myself becuase..lets be honest..it is NORMAL to have a weight range..you cant stay the same weight all the time..i was just hoping it would go down, not up!

current weight 197.2, hoping to be 185 by valentines day...which means i need to get serious. I know where my downfalls are- holiday food. i really just need to tighten up a bit..and stay working out 2-4 week ..i'd really like to hit my goal of Goal Weight: 190lbs; NEW YEARS. miracles happen, right?



ps. all the cookies are gone, i've pretty much given them all away. BUT tomorrow i am going to a cookie exchange...what is a dieter supposed to do at a cookie exchange?!

hahahah, atleast i can laugh about all of this!

Merry chrsitmas everyone!

Kaitlin, glad to hear you appreciate everything good in your life. I sometimes have to make an effort to remind myself of the positives in life - things have been topsy-turvy for me lately, so it's not always easy. One pound up doesn't have to mean alot, could be water retension, could be PMS etc. As you said - keep working out, you'll get there!!! And: we are here for you to motivate you along your journey.

My scales are finally moving into the right direction again - down at 127 lbs, yeah! I'm a little bit annoyed though that am not losing weight evenly (if that makes any sense???). Due to all the running I'm doing (5 miles three times this week, woohoo!) I lost a considerable amount of belly fat, but hardly any fat in my butt and only a little bit in my thighs. As a consequence, some of my throusers are suddenly fairly loose around my waist, but still very tight in my butt and thigh area. I know I can't spot-reduce (plus I'm a pear, so I just tend to be heavier in my lower body), but since we are on the exercise thread: any ideas what exercises I could add to reduce my thighs and butt?

Merry Christmas to you all,
Molly
