You are doing great! The key to the whole process is consistency, keep it up.
I started doing some weight training, so I'm not going to even think about my weight for a couple of weeks. I know that right now the muscle is going up and the fat is going down, the scale is stuck... and it's OK!
I am 175 Lbs. and hope to maintain or lose a couple pounds over the next week. Our family is doing a biggest loser contest as we are going on a family vacation in March. I will try to enjoy what I eat, slow down and only have 1 or 1/2 piece of goodies. It will be hard not to taste everything but I am going to try to eat less and do so in moderation.
You decide today whether you will have a good day or a bad day!

Okay Sox Fans, I am having to give myself a reality slap here. Made a HUGE goal a few months ago and have been sliding. I figured I'll share my challenge with you and see how many people we can motivate.
I did a quick search and found that the average American gains 8-10 lbs between Thanksgiving and New Years. I know, it's hard to lose weight with everything going on. I know, it's hard to work out between shopping, parties, family gatherings and all the rest of the madness... (Note to self... It's all madness!!!)
Now, I'm not saying that we should all stick to eating carrots when there's YUMMY food around. I'm just thinking that we've all worked WAY too hard to lose weight and get healthy to throw away that time and energy.
Here's the challenge: I Challenge you (and me!) to get to January 1, 2011 and NOT gain weight.
How are we going to do this?? 1. Take a small plate if possible 2. NO SECONDS 3. Make better choices at parties. 4. Enjoy small bites of the good stuff 5. Split the piece of pie with a friend 6. MAKE time to work out/ walk/ go dancing... MOVE!!
Post at least once weekly to this Challenge:
