Michael, in all seriousness, you are so good at this that I can totally see you becoming a counselor for bariatric patients when all is said and done.

Just to put the bleeding nipple issue to rest, Jess, it's from the shirt rubbing against you on a long run, nothing serious. I unfortunately had the experience early on on the treadmill, being blessed/cursed with little less than an A cup and preferring to exercise without a sports bra if I'm at home. I didn't get to the point of bleeding, but I could see how it would go that far with distance and time.

Julia, rock on, girl!

Back to work; no time to hang out today .

Okay now how many did you do?

I managed 15 regular and 17 more on my knees. This was after I'd done planks, so my arms were already shaking, I expect your numbers to be higher, now get to it.
I finally got time!

Phew.. Did 20 Regular and 14 on my knees =P Usually when I'm doing some sort of exercise like pushups or sit ups I tell myself to get to a certain number, then once I'm there if I still can keep going I do! But I need to work on my arm muscles lol

Stacey, thanks for the noodle massage of the IT Band info.

Now I understand. You probably wrote it just fine to begin with and I just couldn't grasp the picture in my mind.

I would say that it doesn't happen to most people. I use Body Glide on my legs, I hear it works good on feet to prevent blisters and nipples to prevent them being rubbed raw. If my legs were a little smaller I could save the money that I spent on Body Glide, but I don't think I want to have bird legs.

Ah I have been so busy this week, so I have only been logging and I haven't even looked at the forums! I spent all day yesterday making decorations for our blue and gold ceremony, and all weekend doing making valentines stuff for people. On the upside, that's less time in front of my computer right? Well, I do have some goals I have been working on:

1. Work out at least 3 times this week (I would do more, but a bunch of guys are over finishing our basement)
2. Drink 4 of my 36 oz water bottles a day
3. When I am hungry, drink a glass of water, wait 10 minutes and then eat a HEALTHY snack.
4. Stop eating when I am satisfied, not full. (seems like 'full' kicks in about 10 min later)
5. Substitute sour cream and ranch dressing for cottage cheese and eating things plain.


So far, so good! I missed being on here, I will try to check in more over the next couple days.

All right, I guess I'll just keep a look out for that when I started my running in a few weeks =P

Michael,

I'm still curious... what do people say when they see you after losing 150+ lbs.??? After I lost 30, people asked me if I got a haircut! LOL They knew something was different, but weren't sure what.

Mike,

To prevent future nipple injury , perhaps you could buy a box of those little, round band aids found in assortment packs!!! LOL (Oh, please post a picture if you do!!! )

I've been lucky and never had that issue. I could just use some pasties, right?
