I'm Kelly! Focused losing 10% at a time. I just lost my first 10% (22.8 lbs) and am now losing the next 10% (20.5)! I like the 10% goal because the first one is always going to be the largest number, and if I know I can do that, then the next ones will feel possible.

Hubby and I are doing it together this round, as we are struggling with infertility. It is not weight related, but I do want to be as healthy as possible!

Hey there!! It sounds like you are taking awesome steps in the right direction! I wish I could say the same lol. I have been continuing to mess up but I'm hoping today will be my first fabulous food day in quite sometime. I have been avoiding the scale but I know it's not going to be pretty. I want to salvage what is left of 2014 andake some serious progress. I weigh almost the same as this time last year. I hate feeling like I wasted a whole year yo yoing do I hope I can redeem myself these last couple of months, eek! :) I hope u have a fabulous weekend!! :)

Thank you so much for the kind kind words! I really needed them today, I am not doing so hot! I love that you pointed out there are 20 Fridays left til the end of the year, that is a great incentive. Even with my 6 pound gain, that would put me at 167 and into the 160's for the first time!! There is no pressure whatsoever, but since you pointed it out to me, do you want to be accountable to each other and see how close we can get to 20 pounds by the end of the year? Please, no pressure if you don't want to! I figure even if I don't reach it, I can still come close! Thanks for giving me some perspective! I won't let the last 20 weeks slip away! :D

Just heard this on the radio and thought of you: that the two most energy-efficient methods of transporting people are roller coasters and *drum roll* zip-lines. Wishing you a good weekend!

Thanks for the friend ad! And yes, that 10% is cool--thats great that you find something that works for you & keeps you motivated. I *love* that you are getting healthy & realizing the importance. And sweet, when I read your intro, you said you'd do friend adding to stories/journeys inspirational-thanks! Its taken me awhile in life to reach the point last April to get that "slap in the face with cold water" where I suddenly realized *I* (no one can do it for me) needed to take responsibilty, step up to the plate & take charge of my health. Its been a wonderful, challenging, rewarding and incredible journey--one I'm still on! Know I'm soo excited for you (& your husband) & am cheering for you! emoticon step by step... emoticon every healthy decision/choice counts & is SO worth being proud of! emoticon
