I don't use the phone when I need to speak with someone else in the office - I always get up and talk to him or her in person. I've found that I am up and away from my desk a lot because of that. Otherwise, the day would be so boring!

The water and the bathroom are down the hall from my office. I do my best to get up and get water every hour which of course makes me need to go to the potty. I wear a pedometer so it helps me be aware of how much I'm moving during the day.

I'll make it to the moon, if I have to crawl.

Sitting at a desk can really be a problem. I used to sit on an exercise ball at my desk when I was a public defender to try and keep tone. I fell a few times but it was fun to bounce at my desk.

Hey -- first of all thanks for taking over the team leader spot. You are right -- we of all people need support!

Lately, I've been making myself get up from my desk an run some sort of errand every couple of hours or so. If I have time, I try to get outside (walk to the drugstore, etc.), but usually something in the building -- walk something to the mailroom myself, stop by a colleague's office, stop by the library, or even get my coffee from the kitchen on another floor. If I don't have something specific, I just walk up and down a couple of flights of stairs. Anything to get the blood moving a bit. Sitting at a desk for too long at a time isn't good for anyone's health!

Starting Weight: 260 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

We could use some fresh ideas and goals. What do you think we can focus on? I can think of a few challenges off hand like taking the stairs instead of the elevator in the court house. How about fit jumping jacks after each finished phone call with a client...ten if they were especially challenging? Lol. Really though. Let's get some ideas flowing!
