3/31/2011 - I'm still fighting this fight. I think my story is pretty typical, I got married, had kids and gained weight. Through years of yo-yo dieting, I've made a pretty zig-zag line on the weight chart. I started a weight loss challenge with friends on 1/31/2011, two months ago. I've lost 17.6 pounds so far. There's 4 weeks left in the challenge and I am very motivated to finish strong.

I'm a bit worried about what I'll do when the motivation of the challenge is over. I am hoping I've been at it long enough that I've made some new habits.

My most recent weigh ins:

1/31/11 - 222
2/7 - 216
2/14 - 213.2
2/21 - 213
2/28 - 209.6
3/7 - 209.2
3/14 - 207.6
3/21 - 206.8
3/28 - 204.4

Four weeks to go, so I know I'll get under 200, haven't been there in about 3 years.

I'm outta here to go get on the treadmill. I start out slow and gradually work up to a quick pace, pump my arms (and hit my knuckles on the bar, OUCH!) and put on a little incline.

My Weigh-ins:

1-1-08: 215 (start)
1-13-08: 209
2-9-08: 200
2-14-08: 197.2
2-25-08: 194.6
3-3-08: 192.4
3-11-08: 190
3-23-08: 187.6
5-15-08: 190
12-29-08: 210 (start over)

3/22/09 - IDK!!! Afraid to look, but last time I looked it was 214, I will check in the morning & post it. (Update: it was 216.4)

My Mini Goals:

4/22/09 - 202
5/22/09 - 197
6/22/09 - 192
7/22/09 - 185
8/22/09 - 179
9/22/09 - 173
10/22/09- 167
11/22/09- 161
12/22/09- 155

Fitness Minutes: 15,774

My Goals:
I need to lose at least 50 pounds, and I would like to be able to see my feet again. All of my clothes are tight and I would like to get away from the plus sizes.

My Program:
I have a treadmill, a band resistance set-up, an ab lounge ultra and a DVR.

The plan: walk on the treadmill daily while watching 30-60 min. of something I've recorded on the DVR. Use the ab lounge daily. Follow a low calorie diet of 1200-1550 calories a day.

Personal Information:
I'm 42 years old, married for 20+ years and we have 2 teenage children. I am a real estate agent and I think I would be more confident if I was happy with my weight.

    I missed you! We can do this together. I have been slacking as well. I am at my heaviest and need to get it off. I have maintained for months now but that isn't good enough. I am glad you are back. Glad work has been busy as well. LET'S GO! I need to pump up my exercise ball as well. LOL!
