Thank you so much for the welcome! I am hoping that everyone here can keep me motivated. I definitely need someone to check in with throughout the week to keep me honest! lol My fiance usually says he would love to eat healthier and try to lose weight with me, but he kind of plays by his own rules, so he's not really good at sticking with it all the

I am working on trying to get my signature set up with my stats, and then I think my food journal is all set up...that and I updated my weight goal now with my higher starting weight <sigh>

Looking forward to hopefully getting some motivation and sticking with it this time!

Happy Valentine's everyone.

I guess I'm a little late to the party, but here goes:

Health and fitness:
1) drink a gallon of water per day
2) 400 cals deficient for 6 days
3) workout 3 days
4) play tennis at least one time
5) no cereal for the week
6) stay off the scale until Friday

1) make 50 calls to prospects
2) clean my car

Oh no! =( That happened to me once.. try reposting it?
Usually I open a notepad or Word Doc to type all my long responses in and copy and paste, just to be sure it doesn't get lost or I get logged out lol

Jenny There are a variety of people in this thread and each has their own unique personality so I'm sure we'll keep you laughing and motivated! =)

Hi everyone, It's good to see everyone so motivated. Congratulation Cassie for your weight lost. It's great to see your number going down.
I fell off the wagon, and it's so tough to get back on. My goal this week is simple. I hope to achieve it.
1. calories 1,500/day (or 10,500/week)
2. Run 9 miles
3. DVD 4 times
4. Drink 4 big glass of water
5. Log in all what I eat
6. Stay away from the scale until the end of the week.

Have a nice week everyone.

I can't even feel it. With all the other pain, I guess I've been distracted from it.
