Ok ladies & gents, this one is another wrap!

I heard through the grapevine that Chem was over 2 lbs and Kissie did not weigh in for the final one.
I hope you will join us on the new one Kissie!

So total group loss is 55.6 lbs! AWESOME JOB EVERYONE!!!!! emoticon

Now it's time to move to the "SUMMER MELTDOWN BOARD"!
See you all there!

And I have some pants on today that I haven't worn in more than 5 years I bet. :)

Congratulations everyone on your weight loss!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

If we can be courageous one more time than we are fearful, trusting one more time than we are anxious, cooperative one more time than we are competitive, forgiving one more time than we are vindictive, loving one more time than we are hateful, we will have moved closer to the next breakthrough in our evolution.

I jumped on the scale this morning and it looks like I might have lost about 3 pounds but it doesn't become official until this Friday so I am not entering the loss yet. I was browsing through the Divers lounge and saw that there is now less than 2 weeks left to the bond girl challenge part 2. It looks as though I am not going to get down to 154 by then unless I do some radical things which I am not planning on doing. Any loss would be an improvement at this point. Have not exercised as much as I should the last few days because of the extreme temperatures we have had the last 5 days. Oh well at least I have a somewhat legitamate reasson for not over doing it.

Thanks guys! For anyone who ever went through such a long plateau, you can imagine how great it feels!
I can't wait to measure tonight and see what happens!

emoticon CJ! That is awesome! Hey, you never know. you just might! But you are kicking those lbs away either way!

And I like what you said! Showing up whether we are up,the same or down is what counts the most!

OMG! So, 155 was my aggressive mid-year goal. OR, it was also my worst-case-scenario end-of-year goal.

Guess what - I saw 155.2 today! Woohoo!

I'm dealing with "abandonment issues". Sophie leaving is a bad abandonment. The pounds leaving are a GOOD abandonment.

I'm not likely to make the goal I've stated here, but I will absolutely take the 155.2 I registered today.

Congrats to everyone else who weighed in today, whether you gained, stayed the same, or lost. You showed up, and that matters.

Unchanged still 169 but I have not done as much exercising this week as I usually do and I still eat to much junk sometimes. With the hot weather we are having here I should be able to shed some poundage over the next 5 days.

Way to go Pat, Mich, and CJ! I'm finally back in the loss column, too! AND I am done with moving out of school! That's some therapeutic stress relief.

Chem - I've felt your pain. Any way you can sneak away for some therapeutic diving???

Apr 11 - Goal 15 lbs
Apr 18 lost... .5 (14.5 to go)
Apr 25 neutral
May 2 lost ... 2
May 9 neutral
May 16 gained ... .5 (13 to go)
May 23 neutral
May 30 lost ... 2 (11 to go)

Yeah, I am thinking that the 15 pound goal is shot, but I can do a CJ and be very happy to be down the 4 and whatever else I can shake by the end!

If we can be courageous one more time than we are fearful, trusting one more time than we are anxious, cooperative one more time than we are competitive, forgiving one more time than we are vindictive, loving one more time than we are hateful, we will have moved closer to the next breakthrough in our evolution.
