RR, welcome aboard. I wouldn't mind being in SoCal right now.

Vicki, keep in mind that the is just the drainage for the yard. I'm really just diverting the water as it comes off the roof to a "ditch" on the side. All in all I only have about $250 in parts. The ideal way would have been to use schedule 40 PVC pipe. I didn't have the extra coin to go that route.

"Justification" is not quite meeting your goals, but still in the right direction.

Water: 8 glasses/day Need More
Calories: 1000/day Need Less
Walk: 3.5 miles/day YUP !
Wine: 1 glass/day (bein' real) Need less
Snacks: Gum or Salted vegetables Need More

Today is a new day !

RR, correct on the justification point. I'm guilty of that myself. Congrats on the miles!! Keep it up.

Mike, what's with the water? It BORES my mouth. Have you just gotten used to it? I drink lots of fluid all day, just coffee, lemon water, fruit juice with water, and wine.

Water: 8 glasses/day Need More
Calories: 1000/day Need Less (only 53 calories over)
Walk: 3.5 miles/day YUP !
Wine: 1 glass/day (bein' real) Need less
Snacks: Gum or Salted vegetables Need More have to get rid of those sunflower seeds that I love so much.

Mike, you say you're goal is to finish the week below 200 lbs but your stats below show 174. You back up?

I need to work on my goals but my weight is dropping again.

My Plan:
Post daily: Sat.
Calories 900 - 1100: doing well
Exercise walk - run 20 min. X2 per week to start: X1
Drink more water start with 4 glasses per day: When the weather warms up
Weigh in on Monday and Friday: Yes

Welcome Ridge Runner. I am interested to know how you lost weight. Are you a runner? I would like to try couch to five K but I need to lose some more weight first. Best of luck to you.

RR, unfortunately I gained back just about everything I lost. I stayed in the 170's-180's for a few years, then the weight crept back. I weighed in yesterday and I was at 202. A few weeks ago I was down to 198. I felt and in my opinion look my best when I was 178 (which was nearly 6 years ago). I need to really focus on what I put in my mouth. Which BTW, water is my go to drink.

The sad part is that I was close to having a 6pk, now I'm back to having a keg.

It's Saturday and I'm still at it. I've been productive, even though it's rained all day. I'm working on same pallet projects. Painting a pallet flag that I'll be donating to be a filmed off. I guess I can count this as relaxing as well.

I've been slacking on water but there's still enough time to pull it off.

How is everyone else doing?

Woe Woe Woe... I understand the sadness of gaining it back Mike...2 down and you can be below 200 ! I've crept up a little farther. My new motto of the day,

"Do only that which supports your goal" so far so good today. (Yesterday was my daughter's birthday celebration so not so well.) Today is a new day and a new month.

I finished off the week gorging on cookies. I'm sure I'm up. I sure feel it. That's a good motto. You should start off this new weeks thread.
