Ten pounds is great - that is the BIG bag of sugar or flour - I am starting my third of these 13 in 13 challenges - and the results have been amazing. The next one is going to be better than ever - don't you think?

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

You should be proud of yourself - have you lugged around a bag of sugar or flour for the entire day and night recently - THAT is how much you have gotten rid of - doesn't your load feel lighter?

Even though you did not make the full 13 pounds, pick up something (like maybe a BABY) that weighs the amount you DID lose - carry that around for a whole day regardless of what else you are doing and it will become MUCH MORE REAL that 8 pounds is NOT a small amount. Ask any new mother who has a colicky baby who weighs that much. Your positive attitude really is inspiring because we are all in this together and your encouragement helps the rest of us too.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon to everyone for your dedication and support. I did not make the challenge... 8lbs lost but I am happy that I lost the 8 lbs. I am also looking forward to the next challenge and continuing this journey with my sparkfriends. I have been yoyoing for the past month but I have also been yoyoing with my participation because of work. Summer camp is kicking my behind. But I am still going forward, still motivated and still very happy to be part of this team of awesome sparklers.
Happy 4th everybody.

203.5 lbs. was my weight Tuesday which is my lowest weight of the challenge. I'm up from that today. I'll post my July 5th weight tomorrow. I wish it could be 203.5 lbs., but I'm afraid I binged and it will not even be close to that. I was 208 lbs. after breakfast this morning. I want to be under 200 lbs. by my reunion the second Saturday of August. It will be a struggle, but if I get focused right now I should make it. I wish all of you much success in the next challenge. I know I'm looking forward to it.

Yipppeeeee! I MADE it - got on the scale and this morning my weight was 267 - DOWN 1.8 pounds from Monday - that makes a LOVELY 14 pounds since April 1st. June wasn't impressive but at least I went down a ENOUGH for the challenge - too bad it wasn't in time to change on the first. LOL My total loss is now is 83 pounds.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

I've been so excited to weigh in today! After such a long weight loss stall and the same 5 lbs. up and down, my body finally decided to give up 3 lbs. of fat to the universe! (I think they're on Mars) Total -8 lbs since 3/26. emoticon I'm on day 35 of my own no-butter challenge and it took all this time to shift into gear. All of a sudden -3 lbs. NOT of water weight. I can eat a meal out now and not gain 2 lbs. in sodium etc. by next morning. It stays off. Knew I had shrunk 3" off my waist but hadn't re-measured hips yet. emoticon Now 3" off my BUTT, too!! I can confirm what we read a lot around here~ NEVER give up! emoticon

This has been a great experience to be a part of everyone's sucesses and struggles. Your honesty has kept me honest and accountable. There is no shame here only friends and support. THANK YOU one and all from the bottom of my heart. emoticon Happy 4th!

Now go kick some butt. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I will be there on the 5th - ready to start a new challenge. I did well on this one but June was a bust as far as the numbers on the scales - .2 pounds, but I AM gaining muscle and I am working hard - I am hoping for a loss tomorrow on my weigh in - so far 12.2 pounds down and .8 to make it to the goal.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

RuthieT I totally get you. I have too and I have to tell you when this Goal first came out several months ago I loved it and did well. Then speaking only for me, I got distracted and lazy. I am really happy that this is going to kick in again. I did great when I committed to posting on this site. Plus I liked the support, especially seeing other peoples journey. Hope you start up again.

See everybody next challenge!

I totally lost it on this one. I thought I had posted last week but can't find a post. I got to 186.6 on Monday,almost 3 lbs down from the beginning of June. I need to focus on these challenges and take them seriously. I have been very distracted lately and have not been keeping up. Have a great 4th everyone!

Everyone has done so well! Very proud of all of us. Making lifestyle changes and losing inches is all a part of total permanent weight loss....super important and a huge victory. I weigh in tomorrow but I sneak a peek almost every morning, and this is finally a very good weight loss week for me~the very last week!! So hanging in there is super imprtant. Good job TEAM. emoticon

I'm still at the same weight as last week, but I lost an inch on my waist and hips since last month. I also learned I'm in better shape then I thought I was. Went kayaking Sunday evening with my line dance teacher. First time for me, and ended up paddling into head winds on the way back to the dock. I figured my muscles would be hurting the next day but they weren't. Guess I'll keep doing what ever it is that's keeping me in shape.

Down 2 lbs! I missed a week of weigh in last week. This has been a great challenge! I am looking forward to the next round. I didn't quite make the 13 lbs, but I was close! We have all worked hard and should be proud of any changes we have made to become healthier individuals! GO TEAM!

I have to get myself back into the swing of things for our up and coming challenge. My hiatus is over.

I usually lose 5lbs a month and that works for me.

Here's to all of our success thus far and all of our future success.

loss. You did very well.

Thanks for all the encouragement! I did not loss this week but I did not gain either. Decided to change my weigh in day with the new challenge. Just not comfortable weighing on Mondays.

The interview went very well. Now I am waiting for them to set the next group of interviews. They said that there will be approximately 4 interviews steps. So I am hoping to make all 4 steps and get hired.

Have a wonderful week and I'll be checking back in later this week.

Hmmmm - 8 pounds - Anything is possible - we will have to wait and see - I would not lay any HUGE bets on it though - I am not even laying money on the .8 that I had left to reach my goal.

Hope the work schedule eases up and you get some time at home to enjoy family.

How did the interview go?

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Hi everybody,
sorry I have been away from the team for about 2 weeks. My schedule at work has me doing different things at different times and I am not able to get on the computer like I use to. It is affect my weight loss as well because now I am going up and down up and down. I feel like a yoyo. I am sure it will level out when I can get some consistancy so right now I am just concentrating on maintaining. I have not had time to read everybodys log recently but I will and get back with you. I miss my family and hope you are all doing awesome stuff. Dont forget me. I am still sparking and doing the job coach and checking in. Thumbs up to you all.

Just checking in to see what everyone has been up to! Tomorrow is my weigh in day and of course I am nervous. I shouldn't be because I burned quite a few calories this week. Can't wait for the next challenge.

Well, off to bed early tonight....I have a job interview tomorrow. Hope they hire me. I've been unemployed for 4 months. This has been long enough!!!

Have a good evening!

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend as we are closing in on the 4th. I had 2 graduation parties yesterday and a wedding reception today. The good news, my husband is wearing his Fitbit Flex now too and is focused on his 10,000 steps - we went to the gym yesterday and then for a short walk when we got home to make sure we hit 10,000.

I forgot to weigh in - Ed got up before me - THAT NEVER HAPPENS - he was also ready to GO and wanted me to HURRY up and get ready. I decided that since I change my ticker on Monday because it is the first of the month, I will weigh then and do my final weigh in on the 4th as well. The ticker is ONLY changed on the first so I would have weighed 3 times. Since I am not really losing much, AND I am soo happy whether the scale goes down or not I am CLOSE to the 13 and that may just have to do for now. Those other measures were simply such great news it overshadowed my intended weigh in when I got up this morning.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Update BEFORE I weigh in tomorrow - I have been a little frustrated about only losing .2 pounds up to this point in the month of June. So, it was slow at the fitness center today so I asked if they would check my BMI and didn't even think it worth checking my body fat percentage because it has read ERROR for years - meaning it is GREATER THAN 50% and thus so fat it can't really be measured. The trainer did it for me and . . . . DRUM ROLL. . . . Since April, I have lost 12.8 pounds, and my current BMI is down by more than 2 points AND my BODY FAT PERCENTAGE IS LESS THAN 50%. That means that of the 12.8 pounds I have lost, at least 10.3 of them were FAT (can't get an exact number because it was MORE THAN 50% - so I simply used 50% to calculate it) So, whether I actually lose anything more by July 4th, I will still be JOYOUS over my results. Will weigh in tomorrow and again on the first and see where I end up. Regardless - this challenge has provided AWESOME support.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Iamhere - I don't know if you are a morning person or not, but I found that I do alot better if I work out in the morning before work. After a full day of working I didn't feel like exercising so I didn't. So I made a decision to exercise before work and it has proven to have many more benefits for me incuding being alot cooler.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Instead of looking at it as TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT, it might help to MAKE HEALTHIER CHOICES. I have only lost .2 pounds in June and had gains - I also know that my body is getting smaller and I am FEELING better so the focus is off the actual weight loss and more on the choices and habits I am developing. This doesn't help the frustration, but it does help the tendency to get too discouraged and want to quit.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

No need to write words of encouragement to me today. I'm a little frustrated. I was 205 on the scale on 6/25. On 6/26 I was 207.5, and today I'm 209. Back to work I guess. I haven't been trying to hard to lose weight, so that's my problem. I realize this. Right now I just don't wan to gain a lot of weight. Maintaining in this general area is my goal. Congratulations to all that have been successful this week. Keep up the good work. Until next week.

SCARLETBEGONIA4, You have done great! You have 12 off in this challenge! And you've "just" hit a plateau. Stay the course - your body will catch up and you'll soon see scales results. May I suggest you simply tweak what you are doing in a way that usually helps me? Increase your water by a cup or two a day for the next week. And adjust your food - you can keep the same calorie count but increase the protein (like chicken, fish, eggs, lowfat cheese, yogurt). That usually does the trick for me. And, if your clothes are looser you're on the right track!

So frustrated............I cannot seem to lose anything. I don't want to lower calories as I am working out daily and need the energy. My clothes are looser and my daughter says it is because I am gaining muscle which weighs more and not to get so stressed about it. I hope she is right. Have a great week everyone.

A box of rain will ease the pain and love will see you through.

Down 1 this week - which was quite a victory with the stuff I had to deal with. I know we all have stuff to deal with, too! My good news is that I found a new doctor for my plantar fascitis which I have been dealing with for nearly a year. He gave me hope :) And he affirmed the 12 pounds I've lost (7 on this challenge, 5 before). First person to do that!

IAMHERE, I'm with you - I just cant do much heavy exercising in the heat. I am new to yoga, and am amazed at what a workout it is, without a lot of exertion. Could you maybe try it or tai chi? Or even some meditating and deep breathing - keeps the oxygen going to where it is needed to burn the fat.

Everyone - have a good week as we wrap up this challenge!

BTW - I sent an email to SP Support, asking them to put a "like" button (like facebook uses) for these messages. If anyone else thinks that is a good idea, you might let them know. I am so motivated by all of your entries and would love to tell you each that, but sometimes just don't have the time to reply.

Count me in for the next challenge!

Hurray, I lost 4.4 pounds during this challenge and am grateful, even though I wish it were more. I am excited to say that I have kept with it even though it seems like it is moving at a snail's pace.

It is over 100 degrees here, and the reports say it will be hotter tomorrow and hotter still over the weekend. Very muggy. It is so difficult to work out in this heat (no air-conditioning where I work! - so am a limp noodle when the work day is over). Any suggestions?

Hi Team, Gosh everyone is doing great and sticking with this. emoticon to all joining in!

I'm down one lb. this week, yay, a total of -5 lbs. since re-joing SP 3 months ago.

I went to the Dr. this morning and he has put me on a program (no meds, stimulants, or special foods) due to my obesity. (at risk for several things). He felt my goal was "too agressive" and wants me to start out by losing 35 lbs. (well, 40, because I started here at 190 but weighed in there today at 185) I agree a goal of 150 for now is good. He said we'll re-evaluate at that time as to what the next step might be. I'm going in for a physical tomorrow and get blood work done after that. So I've re-set my ticker. I'll be doing every challenge we continue on with here~ I told him about SP and he thinks that's great. Me too!! emoticon Have a good week-end coming up everyone and be well~ emoticon

emoticon I had a big surprise when I stepped on the scale this morning. Down 2 lbs since last week. I must be doing something right, just have to figure out what it is now.

YES - look for a message about this soon - it will start on the 5th of July. There is already talk about the one that will follow that as well - the talk is that it may not be an exact 13 weeks because it will end this year - at which time we will make a new plan. The NEXT one is definite though and after that we will see where it goes.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.
