travbrad, I'm in the same boat. I worked my butt off to lose 1 pound and get me back to about the same place I was 2 weeks ago. But I too feel better for the exercise (treadmill, Total Gym, stationary bike and walk/jog session). But I went shopping for clothes on the weekend and am starting to fit into clothes a size lower than I have been wearing for the last couple years. Sometimes the scale is slow to catch up to your work.

Default Back on Track...

It's been a couple weeks since I updated, because I was on both personal and business travel. I knew I'd get knocked off the beam a bit, especially with a 4 day weekend on Cape Cod that's an annual getaway with a lot of good food and wine. The business trip to Florida was easier to handle, (except for the free flowing margaritas!) although very little exercise was done, and a lot of time just sitting in meetings and planes. But it seems I didn't do too bad, and weighing in yesterday showed that I only gained a half pound. Which, again, is consistent with my strategy of going slow and steady: if I gain a pound, it's easier to lose it quickly, rather than jumping off and gaining 3-5, and then just losing steam altogether. I'm back on track this week. Just need to avoid the Halloween candy that's showing up everywhere...

TELL ME ABOUT IT! This Halloween Candy is going to be the END of me!

I havent been updating at all with so much going on personally have been thrown off the workout cycle. Maybe Monday I'll do a re-up and see how much more i have left - i'm thinking 10-12 lbs - and it's doable - even though there's only 3-4 weeks left.

Here's to gettin back to it!

Good luck to us all getting thru the halloween goodie haze!

201.6 was what I originally weighed in at.

This morning: 196.7...

A whopping 4 lbs? Oh boy - how about breaking into the 180's to be a revised goal...

In either case - we've got two and a half weeks - this is the final stretch! Lets see how disciplined we can be in this time...

Now that I've eaten most of the halloween candy - this next week will be much easier.
