I think we should do "spring into spring" challenge. Do it until May 1st, straight weight loss, and maybe do something good for you . Whether it be something in your diet or exercise.

Thanks CJ! And Laura I'm with you! Ready for Spring! But fortunately we haven't had all the snow, just little bits.

Have we decided on a new challenge?

Thanks I'm thinking spring as I sit at home because of another lost sub date due to school closing again. Back roads are all icy....this is the 9th "snow" day we've had this year.
I am so ready for nice weather!!

Hey Everyone!

Just got done with a re-affiliating weekend with my hubby! Military deployments are tough on a marriage and having a weekend to tell each other about all the ups and downs while we were separated really strengthens a marriage!

I am all for what ever challenge you decide. And I like you guys assume everyone on here is Christian because of the comments I see! LOL But I'm in for what ever is good for you all!

Great job on all the weight loss!! Woo Hoo!!!

I say until May 1st and do a straight weight loss again. Then maybe some kind of healthy change. I'm not sure what... maybe adding something or staying away from something. Any thoughts?

What do you think of February 24 - April 28?

Or maybe all the way to May 1?

And what shall we be looking at? Straight weight again? Or percentage of weight lost? Or something else like good habits to get us ready for spring?

What do you guys think?

We had my granddaughter over. We don't usually do anything special anyway so it wasn't a big deal.

So when are we going to start the new challenge?

I'm totally down for an Easter challenge.

Whether or not people celebrate it as a religious holiday, or at all for that matter, it is a holiday that is kind hard to miss in our society. So it might be a good bench marker and goal date.

Good job everyone on the loss!

Love it! What a great name!!

Honestly, I sometimes forget, Laura. I lead a Catholic Team as well, and sometimes have to remind myself that this is a married team, not necessarily a religious one. I forget most when I see some members in both teams.

I didn't even think about that. You're probably right, we should make it a Spring challenge.
Maybe we could call it Spring into Spring. emoticon

I was thinking about that, but I know that although we have many Christians here on our Team, not everyone is, and so not all may celebrate Easter.

What do you guys think?

Good Morning CJ and Everyone! That does look better! I looked at my last post and just assumed it wasn't clear enough. It's no big deal.

My weigh in this morning is 172!
Not bad considering my son came to visit from IN this week for two days and the two of us ate out all but one meal!

Hubby comes home WED!!! YAY! Just in time for Valentines Day!! I am so excited! Especially since last year they date they were given to come home kept being extended by another week until it was a MONTH past the original return day!

Have a wonderful week all of you!!

Have I missed out a week ladies? I think I am a little befuddled. I think we should be on week 6, is that right? I know that last week, my weight on my weigh in sheet here at home is different than what I have listed for week 5 below. I must have missed a week somewhere or something.

CJ, my weight last Monday (that is the day I weigh) was 171. The week before was 176. Remember I was holding a lot of water. I did a lot of water drinking and a juice fast from jointhereboot.com to lose 5 lbs in one week. I will weigh tomorrow morning to see where I end up.

Thanks!

171!!!! Woohoo!

Much of that weight was water, I remembered that I should be drinking more water. A nurse once told me the magic of getting water off of your body was drinking what you are supposed to drink. We think backwards sometimes and try to not drink water, but then your body says, hey I need to hold this because we aren't getting enough! Whew!!!

OH NO! 176
I spent the whole week traveling taking my parents back home. They spent a little more than two weeks with me to help pass the time while hubby is away. I maintained while they were here and that was not easy, but the week of eating out and not being able to exercise shows! OK, back to it now!!! :)
Have a great week!

Could be, I really just started getting back into working out on a regular basis again. My sister was visiting last weekend so it could have also been all the beer I drank.

Laura - are you sleeping well? That's always a third piece of the weight loss puzzle.

See weigh-in updates below ...

edited to add - on all my teams, we are struggling right now with weight gains this weigh in. I think it's the mid-winter blahs. Let's see what we can do to kick those "blahs" to the curb...

Don't feel bad CJ I'm up again too. Don't understand it. I was pretty good about the food. I only ate a very small slice of the wedding cake and I thought I did good on my food over the weekend. My sister was up for my son's wedding so that probably has a little to do with it. I tend to go off the wagon a bit when I'm around her...I thought I was doing better this time but apparently not. Oh well it's a new week.

Jane - I don't know. What would you like me to put? Is one way or the other more motivating to you? Shall I put the higher one so you are fired up to have a great week? Or the lower one so you work hard to maintain the loss?

LAKENDAL: Perhaps you'd like to double check your numbers. Looks like a transposition of the 4 & 6 may have happened....Someone's numbers are a bit off...yours or CJ's?

It's looks like you and I could in the same boat...not gaining, not losing, just maintaining... emoticon

I got in a decent workout yesterday including an actual walk with my husband after work. It wasn't a real fat burning walk since our road is mostly ice but I got outside in the cold fresh air. I'm so ready for spring.

I was bad over the weekend. I could not stop eating. That wouldn't have been so bad but I was basically a slug and did nothing at all. I'm a little more focused and determined now and ready to climb back on that wagon.

weight = 146.4 emoticon

I think we all weigh in sometime on the weekend. Does that work for you? Or do you weigh every day like me? (I only take Sunday as my "official" weight though)

Shall I put your starting weight at 199 then?

Not from the weekend but I just took it this morning and came in 199.

Going forward should I weigh in one week from today or will you all be weighing in on Saturdays?

I like the idea of posting what we did. Not to brag but to get ideas from other people of things to do/give that I may not think of and mix things up on occasion. I will post Saturday

I hear you guys on the cookies and chocolate. Those are my downfalls!

Good for you, Jane, for keeping it to 1 lb gain. I've gained about 4-5! That is unusual for me, though. I think there is something wacky with my hormones and cycle right now. *sigh* It's wreaking havoc on my water retention or something.

I still have fudge and some chocolate left in my stocking. I'm going to ration it and try not to inhale it all in one sitting. That way I can still enjoy it without going over on my calories. I made some sugar cookies early in the holiday season and just a small batch. Topped them with cream cheese frosting and ate them in less than a week. Gained a couple of pounds because of that.
I also have some not so good for you foods planned for tonight and then for the Michigan game tomorrow. Then things should return to normal. I even have a "walk" planned with a girlfriend once school is back in session and we can walk the halls....It's just too cold out to walk outside now.

Absolutely. And when we do go out, I prefer a quiet evening with friends than a huge, noisy party.

I have just as much fun if not more staying at home and doing stuff. It's cheaper and I can have date night in my jammies.

Me too! We played games and listened to Christmas carols, while watching the advent candles burn down to nothing.

Lots of fun.

Starting weight 144.

I know the challenge just started but I have to post that we had "stay at home date night" last night. Played wii, cards, and Yahtzee. Turned Pandora radio on the computer and sang along and "danced" in our chairs while we were playing cards.

This challenge is very similar to our Getting Ready for Christmas Challenge, except the timing is different. emoticon

From January 1 to February 13 we will see how much weight we can lose.

(1) Sometimes this weekend, post your starting weight.
(2) Every week after that, until February 13, post your weigh in.

An added challenge:
Either (a) spend some quality time with your spouse weekly at least (or daily if you can manage) playing a game, going for a walk, sending them a letter or email, calling them, etc. or (b) making them or sending them a tiny token of your affection (single flower, teeny gift, favourite homemade meal or snack) weekly (again, daily if you can do it).
