Default 22 lbs by June Monday (1/24/2011) Weigh-In

Hello Everyone:

I missed many of you last week. Hope you will continue with the group because it is very motivating when we have more support.

Last Monday, I went for my yearly physical and I had a very pleasant surprise: My heart rate was excellent, it usually is pretty good
My cholesterol was very good including my LDL and HDL but the best news was about my triglycerides. Last year I was a 240 YIKES!, about 3 months ago I was a one 158 (much better, but still not under the 146, which is what is recommended) Last Monday....72!!! I was very happy. I knew that the triglycerides are the ones that respond most rapidly to change in diet and exercise and I was hoping for some improvement, but I was not expecting such a huge change. So I was VERY excited about that.

Now for the weigh-in. I did manage to meet my goal of 126.4 this morning, but again, I had been a bit lower earlier in the week. Last night, I went to a Packer Party and today my girlfriends took me out for lunch so I am probably a bit heavier than the 126 I was this morning...but hey, tomorrow is my birthday (41) so I'm going to let THIS MORNING'S weight stand. (Tomorrow I will probably be back up at 127, but I think I'm heading in the right direction overall. )

I'm hoping to be a 125.4 by January 31 so I will have to be very good and keep up with my exercises again this week.

Good luck everyone! Hope to hear from you.!

Well Ladies,

It has not been a good couple of weeks for posts. I wish you all luck with your weightloss goals. I am happy to say that I am still on track to meet Monday's goal (125.4) and exercising everyday for 40 minutes. But I will probably join a new thread (maybe the 10-15 lbs club since I have 11 pounds to go). At this point, I really need to have the support and external accountability via the weigh-ins. So Good Luck and maybe I'll see you in another thread. Thanks for the support you have already given.

Thanks, Dawn

I just weighed in a 124.6....Yea!, I am now under 10 pounds to go (just barely). But I haven't seen the 124's in a couple of years so I'm happy about that. i just borrowed a friend's p90x so I'm going to try that today. I've been doing zumba pretty regularly for about 3 1/2 weeks so I want to vary the workout.

I'll see about finding another group..you let me know, too, if you find something.
