I'm going to have to eat my own words. I should have stuck to my plan of not eating the higher calorie foods but I was so busy cooking all day that by supper time I was starving and ate every thing. I did manage to skip dessert.
Tomorrow's weigh in will be the proof of how well or poorly I did.

10/5 Day 1: stretch, floor exercises and a slowww walk (could barely move) 5 minutes there, five back
10/6 Day 2: same as day 1 but walked a bit better
10/7 floor exercises, 15 minute walk woot woot
10/8 visiting a friend, floor exercises, no walk
10/9, floor exercises and stretch, walk with DH
10/10 ditto, 16 minute walk
10/11 I had lost three pounds at the start of this and gained it back and more so NEW START, back to staying on plan, stretch, floor exercises, 16 minute walk
10/12 137.8 this morning, so not the three pounds at the best but a pound down, walking and a resolve to "eat clean" as best as I can. A bit of pain in my knee and not feeling great due to meds but determined to keep on.

Goal (Jan 4, 2016): 241

I ended up less than last week, which I am very grateful for; however, I am up from Fridays weigh in, and I'm a little sad about that. I do know though it's a combination of salt from a bunch of cold cuts and also bloat as this is day 1 of ttotm. It's a good start to the challenge, and I am satisfied!

Down 3 pounds from last week! That's a little over 12 pounds since starting the Diabetes Prevention Program 5 weeks ago. That means I only have about 9 more pounds to lose to meet my challenge in class. But that won't be the end of my weight-loss journey--I've still got more to lose. Gotta run do some errands! Vicki

Debbie, your exercise achievements are impressive. I hope that when I get to
the 150's I will be moving a lot more and better than I am now. For the people who are weighing in, we have all had a really good start in week one.
Let's do it again this week. Keep your eyes on the prize.

Hi all! Setting up exercise goals for a new week! I'm giving myself a break today, but plan to get in a workout each day for the rest of the week!

Start (week 1): 154
Goal (Jan 4, 2016): 143
Week 2 Exercise Goals: 5 interval workouts (alternating between a cardio move and a strength move) and get out for a walk at least twice. It is a very rainy forecast this week, so achieving this goal will be dependant on mother nature

You had a successful first week! Great job!!!

I did manage to get in quite a bit of exercise in the first week of our challenge, but I know that I've undone any good I did this past weekend. So hard to stay on track with guests! It is what it is and I'm just planning on dusting myself off and getting right back on track

I actually exercised yesterday! I faced my fear of hurting my back again, and I got my fat a$$ off the sofa. Granted, I only did a few minutes before I was huffing and puffing and couldn't move my limbs anymore, but at least I did it. I got a start, and I will only do better from here. I got past the first hurdles of putting the DVD in, pressing play, and moving my body. Now I've got to get past the second hurdles...doing it repeatedly and going longer each time.
