Everyone must be very busy with holiday things! Very quiet in the hotel these days. I have managed to spring for a much more luxurious 8th floor room...but I'm not unpacking...looking to save up enough to afford the 7th floor for Christmas. Hang in there through the holidays everyone!

I'm finally down to 206.5 this morning, which means I have officially lost 70 pounds! That's after a whole month of going up and down from 208 to 211. I was so stalled. But finally, I broke through! Here's to a continuing downward trend...

Hey Sue and Elizabeth - great to have you as neighbours again! Hope our other friends in 210-ville are on their way soon. I'm packing up, hoping for a move to the 8th floor next week. This is the lowest I have weighed in 12 years! It is pretty exciting. Off and running this weekend. 4 ringette games and 3 parties! Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Hey everyone;
Well, I see some familiar faces in this hotel. I'm checking in on the 9th floor. I've had an awesome week (no snacking at night has made a huge difference for me) and I hope I can keep the momentum going. This looks like a nice place, but my sights are set on Onederland!

Well, I was all the way up to 211.5 for a few days there, but I've been running for half an hour every morning, the past three days, and I'm back down to 208.5. Today's my big martial arts day (3 and a half hours of kung fu!), so I plan on moving down to the 7th floor tomorrow. When I lose a pound and a half more and I'll have officially lost 70 pounds... I really want to be able to change my profile image!
I can do this.

I'm back down to 205.2 today so I'm back on the 5th floor! I'm feeling queezy but I'll try to cook the turkey breast I bought and make potatoes and cauliflower. I already cooked a bunch of apples and spiced them.

Hey!

Sorry, I'm just so excited because as of this morning I'm down to 208.5--which puts me at exactly halfway done! 68.5 pounds lost, 68.5 more to go!
Though I usually think of it as 140 pounds to lose total (then, since my goal weight is 140, I'll have lost half my body weight. However, since I think I really started at about 277, it's not quite technically half... but then, I did start dieting a few days before I first weighed myself, so it's possible I was up to 280 at the beginning).
Anyway, I'm halfway done! I've gone down from a size 26 to a size 17 (just bought a new pair of jeans yesterday).
I am so going to repost this on my blog...

I'm on the 8th floor again! DSIL took DH and I to a beautiful farm where I bought a huge beautiful cauliflower and other produce but she bought sugar free oatmeal cookies, fruit bars and sugary cider donuts. I would give them away, but DH won't. She's dying of cancer and I know it was nice of her but she knows I constantly struggle with my weight. Any suggestions?

Peachylady: I exercise almost daily, doing cardio and strength training (I rotate muscle groups, so I do the strength training about 5 days a week).

My eating formula: protein, fiber, protein, fiber. Flintstones Complete Chewables to make sure I get enough nutrients.

Most importantly, though: coming onto SP daily to track my food, list my exercise, and interact with the other people who keep me going... like you. Having supportive friends going through the same experience is amazingly helpful, and keeps me from giving up!

Thanks to everyone here: everyone needs a fan base, and I'm one of yours!

Well guess I guess I jinxed myself because I still weighed 200 :( but that still means that I have lost 30 pounds! Which is good. Peachylady the only tips I have is to stick to it. It isn't a great tip but it is true, you have to stick to it and even when you get stuck try harder. And if you need a friend to lean on, any of you, let me know! I am always on here lol!

COngratulations 1st floor habitees! Can't wait to see you all waving at us as you hitch your wagon up to the next road...... krryis - do youhave a spare stereo?

I think we need to start installing one on each floor!! I will talk to management!

Okay, I'm moving my stereo out to the lobby. I might as well start packing the rest of my stuff; hotel security is talking about evicting me. This may turn out to be a one-month lease after all!
