Adriana,

You do not have a gross bone in your body! You're young, you're darling and you're strong. KEEP FIGHTING.

Come join the new team.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.

Grief is the price we all pay for love. In memory of all those we have lost and still treasure!

Sometimes when you get that frustrated.. you just go ahead and cry. It's ok to be emotional from time to time and to let it out!

Meanwhile.. BREATHE (I agree with Nancie)..
It's going to pass.. and you will get through.

Hey everyone! I am so proud of everyone on this team! Congratulations on everyone's great progress. I did not lose any weight the whole challenge! what a bummer, but I have maintained and I have figured out some things. On the up side, I have improved on my fitness. Tomorrow is the scheduled tweaking of the running, up to 3.6 miles. I have myself on a schedule to it 6 miles on New Year's Day!

I will be cheering you all on. Though this challenge is over, I will still be with you on the more long-term challenge of each and everyone of us hitting our goals and finding our healthier, happier selves!

LIVE ON! STRIVE ON! MOVE ON!

Kisses and Hugs in Done Love style!!!

I am still feeling sooo blah, i'm sorry i havent been around all week. I came down with my cold last Sunday night and thought i was feeling better tues and wed (so i worked out those nights), but it seemed to have made things worse. I've been soooo down for the count. Despite not exercising and eating weirdly, i did manage to drop 1.2 lbs this week - making a total (i believe - since i dont quite remember what i started at) of 7.6 lbs for a 7 week challenge, pretty good! I am SOOO impressed with the rest of you too (though i just had a chance to barely skim all the messages this week) - you all did phenominal!!

And THANKS to Lisa for setting up our own page! What a great way to keep each other on track even without the challenge. We could even do our own mini-challenges. We have bonded sooo well!

Chelle. I am sooo happy that you are going to be at your 15 lb mark soon. I am sooo happy for you! IT is awesome! So I say we start a new thread. I am going to do that. I am going to call it Golden Goddess. We can post our weights and things there till the new challenge starts just to keep us accountable. We can still chat in here so it isn't tooo hard to find our weigh ins Ect. I hope you all will join me. I think it will be alot of fun and keep us going to BL3 starts. Talk to you all soon!

Bah.. cleaning binge. My "bedroom's" become something of a glorified closet that really just happens to have computer in it. It's not even a neat closet. All this trying on clothes that don't fit is keeping me something of a disaster. I've gotten a bit overwhelmed.. but it's almost time to change out for seasons (like I have a lot of options. lol!) So I'll probably use that to start the cleaning binge!

Nancie, So sorry you've come down with the lad's ailments! Can't BELIEVE you ran anyway! Yikes on dropping out of your bra! lol. Hey, you gotta love getting rid of stuff because it's too big!

Lost 2lbs this week!! WOO HOO!~!!!! Dont' usually lose 2 in a week.. but I sure do like it!!!
So, my end weight result for the challenge:
Lost 10 lbs (11 if you count 1 1lb pass). From 198 to 188. But, I'm happy about it. (Would have been thrilled to drop 15..but it's just around the corner!!)
I haven't seen my mom and dad in 2 weeks or so.. and saw them yesterday.. and my mom IMMEDIATELY noticed!! HUZZAH!!! I was so happy that it was noticeable!

I'm only 3lbs away from my 15lb done mark.. and I am sure I'm going to get there SOON. :D :D I'm thrilled!

I could use a cleaning binge myself...

I'm game to keep up our thread - either here or someplace else. This has been a nice safe place, and you can't beat this support. I'd agree that I signed up for one thing, but got a whole lot more out of this.

Despite having the lad's stuffy nose, watery eyes, and scratchy throat, I got out for my run this morning. Unfortunately I nearly dropped out of the bottom of my job bra. Time to go through the closet and get rid of stuff that's too big, again!

I'm trying to figure out what Lisa's wearing now that she's lost 18 lbs over the last 7 weeks...I'll be checking in on you Lisa! Thanks for the gift of treating yourself well. You are too special not to.

Meagen.. I love that idea!
Maybe we can just have a new thread called "GOLDEN GODDESSES" or something so we can tell the difference.
I think we could even keep checking in with each other if the other challenge starts. Why not?
I think we ended up with a relatively "small" group of us who have become pretty close and there's no reason not to keep in touch.
I learned a lot through this challenge about myself. About my health and I think it's helped me make real LIFE changes that are habits now. Which is thrilling and was the POINT of my doing this.
The pay-off has been more than I hoped for, to be honest.
And the biggest thing I've gained is all of you.:)

Hey team. It is sad to see it coming to an end...It don't have to be an end...it can be a new beginning for us. We can start up a new thread or even a team to where we can all as a team continue to weigh in and hold each other accountable till the next challenge starts. We can call it GOLD II Continued or something like that and one time a week the people who are still interested can go there and post their weights and we can keep on chatting in this thread. That is if anyone else is interested. I am pretty sure Art, Chelle, Lisa, Schauna, Nancy, and some others would like to do that (sorry if I left anyone else out)! So let me know and we can do that if you would like. We can keep it fun and challenging till BL3 Starts...We can make a challenge to see who can get the most amount of fitness mins or calories burned each week and whoever does gets a SPARK GOODIE or somehting. It will be fun and interesting! So let me know. Talk to you all later!

Chelle i feel the same way. I am so happy that I had the opportunity to get to know you and everyone else. We will still be here for you. Glad you had a great day.

Lisa-I agree with chelle, it would be a great gift you take care of yourself and I too promise to check on you to make sure you are. You deserve it!

Meageen(i know i spelled it wrong. just trying to make you smile)

I weighted in today to peek at the scale and i am down a pound. I will weight in tomorrow morning on my normal weight i day make it official. We all did an awesome job doing the challenge and we should all be pround. I so proud of you all. emoticon

I still don't believe that tomorrow is the last day.
Went for a hike today, went to a friends, to my brothers new house.. nice day all in all!

Cleaning binge! Now that's a binge worth indulging, Kat! ha! you can come here ANY time1

Amber - enjoy your walk!

Lisa, I would consider it a gift from you to me if you did take care of yourself. A bath, a pedicure.. whatever works for you. And I will hold you to it! ;)

Maegen - glad you felt "helped"! I'm so glad you're still with us too... I was worried there for a little while. :) But, you're still kickin'!

I logged on tonight to track my food. *sigh* It's still sad to be letting go of this challenge for me. IT sounds weird and strange.. but I'm actually feeling sad about this coming to an end. You have all been much more to me than I can really express.
Some of you know this, and others may not..
But you've pulled me through some hard times, kept me accountable without ever being harsh, only loving and supportive...
I just have not had much of that in my life...not really. And it's a wonderful feeling. I come here and tell you what's going on.. and it feels so safe and secure.
Thank you.
Thank you... all of you for being here. My life is richer for getting to know you and for having this safe haven to come to. We may be far apart.. but what is distance, really?
Thank you all for being the unique and wonderful people that you are, and for being strength to me and support for me and for giving me a chance to share in your successes and setbacks.

I just wanted to remind myself of how lucky I truly am, so I need to share something. I would like to share my sincere gratitude for Nancie, Amber, Kat, my scarecrow, and well, ALL OF YOU, for reaching out to me...especially when I need it most! I never knew such humility, and it is an amazing feeling. I am in awe that you have reached out to let me know how much you care, and I wanted to send a quick note to say that not one of you is under-appreciated.

I love giving gifts to others, so to those who actually consider me taking care of myself a "personal gift", I will put everything I have into it, and keep you posted (so I avoid isolating).

Later today i am suppose to meet with a couple of friends for dinner and we may do a little shopping. i can't believe the challenge is ending. I am so happy to have gotten to know each and every one of you. You are all wonderful and amazing.

Chelle-glad you had a great time out. You deserve it. Hope you got your hike in. I am a teacher aid. i will find out what grades I work with on Wednesday.

Wannabhappy-I need to be cleaning too but I will get to it soon. Atleast you will be brn calories while cleaning. Want to clean my place to lol.

Lisa-I am sorry you are feeling sad. Do something just for you that you loveing doing or have not done in a while. You are working so many hours. What is it you do again? You need some rest. You are such a great and amazing person and you deserve to be happy. emoticon

Hope everyone have a great weekend. Be kind to yourself and get in some exercise.

Good morning everyone!
Lisa I am sorry you are feeling sad. Remember, this a smaller challenge may be winding down but it will continue again soon. Also, the big challenge, what we are all here for, is not over either. We are constantly in a challenge called weight loss. I have to admit that I have enjoyed being in this challenge and on the Gold team with all of you wonderful women. You all have challenged and inspired me. Thank you for that!!

Anyhow, I will be on a cleaning binge. Before Tim (DH) and I had children we would spend one afternoon of the weekend cleaning house. Over the past 16 years we seem to have stopped doing that. We decided that we need to start doing that again and making sure that the boys help too. They are 12 and 9 and quite capable of helping. So that is what my Saturday will look like. At least I am almost done with my homework for this week. But then next week will start and bring new assignments with it. I just need to get back into the swing of things!

I hope everyone has a great(long) weekend. Make this last day count, drink all your water, get yourself moving, and count your blessings!

Lisa, I was worried about you. I'm so sorry to hear that you're isolating. You are correct about it being unhealthy and I'm glad that you decided to check in. We don't just want to hear from you when all is well. We want to hear from you ALWAYS.

It sounds like you're working FAR too much. What is it that you do for a living? 7 days a week 13-15 hour days is indeed ridiculous.

Don't be too sad that the challenge is ending. Although I also am a bit sad about it. We can keep this thread alive and well.. as I believe quite a few of us would like. :)

18 Pounds! That's WONDERFUL! A great success!!! And you should praise yourself. There is no reason for you to treat yourself with any less love and respect than you treat others. If you can treat yourself with that much care, concern and love, you'll feel much better. It's wonderful to give and be generous.. but it will benefit you greatly to be as kind to you.

Nancie.. I'm not exactly sure when it starts, we'll have to keep our eyes open

I doubt I could keep up with your hubby. We're not that far apart, I think Nancie. I'm in Northern NJ.
There's another Done Girl friend I have who's up near Elmira, NY (well, pretty close anyway) and we're planning on meeting and hiking together (Possibly Watkins Glen)
WOO HOOO on another pound gone! 8 lbs is AWESOME, Nancie!! It works out to be about a lb a week!

I think I may have actually lost 2-3 lbs this week. Scale's been varying. I'm so hoping it is 3lbs!! But, 2 would be great too. I'll see what it says tomorrow on my "official" weigh in day!

I'm not finding anyone to hike with me... so I'm thinking of going by myself... we'll see.

Good morning my lovely GOLDen GREATS. I have been quiet lately because I am in a funk, or bloopy, or whatever word you want to use for it. I tend to isolate when I am like this, and I know it's unhealthy. So, I thought I would check in. I am alive, doing well trying to gain good health, but only partly achieving it. My food is 100% on, my workouts are okay - great on strength training, lacking on cardio; not doing what I would like to. I work entirely too much, and I know it. It's causing a lot of problems in my life too. Intellectually, I know exactly what I need to do, but my work ethic does not allow it. I am working 7 days a week, average 13-15 hr days. It's ridiculous.

I am also sad that our challenge has come to a close. I know our forum we'll continue, which brings so much comfort, but I am sad when most things come to an end...never have been good at that. The bright spot is that I did better than I thought I would. I lost 18 pounds (19 if you count the one lb pass, which I don't) in the 7 wks. So, I am pleased (well, sort of - praising myself is not my forte).

I find I am cutting myself off from everyone. It's just a very familiar safe place for me. So, please understand, that if I am quiet, it's not because I don't care, or because I am not thinking about all of you...it's because this is what I do. I shut down and isolate. I will emerge...I always do, but in the meantime, I wanted to at least give you an explanation in the event you noticed.

Much love, and gratitude for each and every one of you. My journey is richer with my GOLDen friends. I am humbled more than mere words can express.

Hugs, Lisa

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.

Grief is the price we all pay for love. In memory of all those we have lost and still treasure!

Hey Chelle-
Hope you get out for that hike. Hubby prefers to get out on the trails at about 7 in the morning. Too bad I can't get him down there to be your hiking bud this morning.

Amber- great job avoiding temptation! Best wishes for the start of your school year.

Gloomy here too. I am happy to report that I'm down another lb. So that'll make 8 lbs lost for the challenge for me. I know that's close to what some of you drop in a week, but I'm thrilled just the same - both for you and for me! And that also makes it 7 lbs until the end of this ticker. Holy smokes, its gonna be a reality!

How are you all doing with the sit-ups and push ups? I checked myself out in the mirror this morning and I think I've developed 1-pack abs! Its a start.

I'd love to take part in BLC III - its supposed to coincide with the start of the program on TV, right? Sept. 16?

Amber, Thank you first of all! I had a good time with my friends. :) I was in rare form and had EVERYONE cracking up. My friend Maggie was complaining for me to stop because her stomach hurt from all the laughter. I of course, had to point out that that was a beautiful thing!! lol!

GREAT job back to work! Climbing ladders is GREAT exercise! Johnny is always telling me that (he paints and does home improvements and swears ladder climbing will knock weight off me like nothing else! He keeps telling me to carry shingles up a ladder onto the roof for exercise.:P)
I'm sure you got a GREAT workout setting up for school! Congratulations on eating SO well with all that temptation around!
What grade/subject do you teach?

It's a little gloomy out.. but I want to get a hike in before the rain if I can this morning. (Might have to go it alone. Yuck. Nobody likes to get up early on Sat. Mornings with me!! grr.)
Will let you know if I bite the bullet on that one. ha! AND.. how it goes with my new HRM!

Hi my golden goddesses I am so tried to day. Today was my first day back to my regular job and I am Tired. I did get in alot of exercise helping the teachers get their classrooms ready for back to school next week. all i did all day was climb ladders to hang posters on the wall and lifted boxes to put in the cabinets. Their were so many sweets and goodies and I did pretty well. I ate one donut from krispy kreme and it was worth it. The rest of the time i ate my fruits and veggies I had with me.

Chelle- Sorry to hear thing at work was bad. Hope it will be better when you go back. Way to go on doing 9 miles on your bike. Hope you have a great time with your friend tonight.

Justice- we are all have a hard time I think with school starting back and the holiday. I know you will get back into working out soon.

Adriana-sorry to hear about that but glad you are still around

Maegen- way to go on letting go of that negative engery and being positive. We will not let you fail. As chelle said you deserve this. We are hear for you and if you want let me know I will sparkmail you my email and or phone number if you ever need anything. You can do it!

Nancie- sorry to hear that you are getting what your child has. Try to get in lots of vitamin C to fight it. I always catch what my daughter has and the kids that I work with on the job. I hope I don't get has sick this year.

Nancie.. I know White Face Mountain!!!
Used to rent a house on Fern Lake, Pecks Lake.. and some others. ha!!! Beautiful there.

Adriana, Sorry about that.. but it's still good to have you around! Bleck to TOM! You KNOW who hacked you? Yikes!

Maegen.. I'm in for sticking to this thread. I heard talk of a BLC III starting the second week of Sept. There are rumours on the internets! (hehe.)
*HUGS* Glad to see that frown turn into a smile and that doubt into determination!! You rock! You deserve it and you can do it!

Justice - We do what we can. You'll get back to it! Good for you for eating well in the meantime!

Nancie - lol @ petri dish :P

So.. Today was ROUGH. A co-worker (correction.. as of today EX-Coworker) flipped the live fantastic at our boss today. Yikes! I thought I'd have to duck! she was screaming obscenities and really awful things to her.. it was horrific! I can't tell you the knots I get from stuff like that. Just.. horrible..
So I took it out on my exercise bike, even though I was exhausted.. After said co-worker left my boss was in tears and I was the only one there. UGLY. VERY UGLY.

So.. I got in 9 miles on the bike in 40 minutes which isn't bad. Wanted to hit 45 minutes.. but I've just HAD It. lol! So I'm trying to get up the energy to get in the shower and go visit with my pals for the evening. Perhaps a little later I'll go for a wee walk. Dunno. Time's slipping away.

In other news.. I ordered a HRM from Amazon.com and it arrived today! So I'm going to have to figure that one out. And get used to wearing it (I don't wear a watch or anything. Work with my hands, I don't really like things on my wrists. lol

So... I'm off like a herd of turtles to the shower.

Have a wonderful night, my goddesses.
You are Strength to me and I respect and appreciate every one of you!!
Be Well!!!

Hi Justice- I think with school starting and the holidays that things are fairly crazy for a lot of us. Congrats on eating well. I wish I could say the same for myself! Have fun with the bf. :)

Maegan- Congrats on making your food log public! I know that's a huge step, but I've found it helpful, particularly when others can help me troubleshoot when I can't figure out what's going on.

The lad and I took a 3 hour nap this afternoon. Me and the petri dish. I'm gonna come down with this muck for sure. But I feel a heck of a lot perkier now that I've napped.

Hey ladies! I cant believe how long its been since I've worked out! I hate thinking about it because its been weeks... I've totally fallen off track with my workouts. And this entire weekend I'll be busy because my bf is coming to visit me. I'm going to start back hardcore next tuesday.. and for now I'm just trying to eat well so I can help us put up some big numbers this last week!!

Thank you to all the team members who have showed me love and support. I have given myself a pep talk. Restarted my program and I also made my food tracker public. It will hold me more accountable I think....So we will see what happens in the next couple of weeks. I Am going to work as hard as I can and get some messages. I was reading through the posts and let me tell you...YOU PEOPLE inspire me...From the Hikes, to the 30 Day Shred, to the elliptical machines. Looking at how much you all have lost and how positive you are. I am lucky to have you all standing behind me. Chelle I need to give you my phone number so you can call and SCREAM AT ME to get me back on track! You to Lisa. I ♥ you girls!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! emoticon

You inspire me and that is all that can be said about that. I hope you have a WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY! and you are right I dont think I can go on without this team so we will have to keep this thread going even after the challenge is over. We can keep our own challenge going and post our weights and stuff in here!!! At least till they start another challenge that we can be a part of? Ya know? Anyone else interested? I love these girls that are part of our team.

Lisa. Thank you soooo much. I needed a boost and I got it. I finally took the step I needed I think to make a difference. I restarted my program and I am starting from the top again. I made my food journal public. SOMETHING I have been so scared to do. I think it will hold me more accountable though. I am not going to want to have them horrible days when people are going to be able to see what I am eating. You know! So that was a huge step for me. I hope it helps. Thank you again!

It is a big area! We have friends who have a house near Tupper Lake and we try to visit once a year. We could take day trips over, but we don't for whatever reason. I can see White Face Mountain across the lake on my commute to work!

Nancie,
Glad to hear that the lad had a great first day.. but yuck! A bug!!
Do you go to the Adirondacks a lot? I love it there!
As a kid my parents would rent a house on a lake up in the Adirondacks every summer. I absolutely love that area!! (Well, it's a huge area. lol)

Sorry to hear the lad caught a bug. :( I hope you get some sleep!

Well so much for what was going to be a day full of walking. The lad has a bug so no school and probably no trip to the Adirondacks. I got about 4 hours of sleep last night. Oh, well. Hopefully I'll be able to take time to clean house for when my parents visit next week.

Great find, Lisa. Thanks!

Maegan, glad to hear you're feeling better!

Golden, great job of putting together a plan for when you work late.

Happy Birthday Schauna! You've already been serenaded. I'm not going to do it again.

Amber- its amazing how school time has crept up on all of us. For those who asked about the lad's 1st day...he did really well. Hubby manage to say bye without incident. The lad played in the sand pile/water trough to such that he ran through both sets of clean clothes I sent him with. Who knows if the lad had an accident, he managed get himself completely wet! Twice! Hubby says that the lad through a pretty big fit when he came to pick up the lad...said it was a little embarrassing.

I did pretty well today - tomorrow I'll be walking about 5 miles getting the lad to school and back and then going to pick him up so I've got high expectations for tomorrow too!

Happy Birthday Schauna!

I hope everyone is is having a good final week. It has taken me until now to finally get on track and have a plan for my long days at work.

Maegen, you've come to far to quit now. I hope you'll be back on track soon.
