Ryan - you are here! I'd say you've had a pretty good reason for it. I'm so glad that you are here, participating and alive! :)

You'll do it - you did fantastic last time, you have great determination. Give yourself some slack.

It's been a so-so week for me. I did fairly well through the week but after I took my picture Friday I was off to a renaissance fair that I'd never been to, hotel room, restaurants, fair food, etc. So, all in all I think I did well. LOL

For the Kinect Kickboxing game, there are a couple of options. One is Fighters Uncaged, which I heard is fun. And the other, coming in June, is UFC trainer, which I don't know if you can fight, but at least you can do the moves.

As for my weight this week, down a pound to 283.4. Still gets me that I let that number get back up. Ugh.

This is starting out to be a pretty good week. Staying within calorie range and working out hard! It's been beautiful outside so that is a great motivator. We don't see the sun that much in Oregon, at least not before the middle of June.

So far doing pretty good this week. Been using the Whole food shake mid afternoon and it keeps me from snacking. In the evening been using the popcorn that has 1 weight watcher point and staying away from chips.

Got good news today on game order from Amazon :

ExerBeat
Price on order date: $28.99
Price charged at shipping: $19.54
Lowest price before release date: $19.54
Quantity: 1
Total Savings: $9.45

$9.45 is your total savings under our Pre-order Price Guarantee.

So this is indeed a good price for another exercise game to add to my library. I have to have variety or I get bored. The only one so far that I don't get bored with it seem is the Wii fit Plus - I like the yoga, strength, balance etc.

Well happy hump day to all my buddies.

Lynneth, If you want to be in the contest I can put you in. There is not problem. You just will be at a disadvantage since you will have a couple less days to loose weight. I guess I can extend to the end of this week at midnight to get more people in.

Good luck to you as well Lynneth7!

Yesterday was a bit of a struggle food wise. I love to work out but my eating is just out of control. I didn't completely undo all the hard work I put in exercise wise so thats a positive.

Today is starting strong. Worked out hard and now I am going to have a healthy lunch before work.

Best of luck everyone!!!! emoticon

So how has everyone's week started off so far? I am happy to say I kept to my diet by bringing my own lunch and healthy snacks for work. I am walking for 15 min at lunch. Weather has been nice in Houston this week so far so I can do it and not be all sweaty emoticon .

Well just want to stop by and cheer everyone on. Have a wonderful day.

I sent my pic - plus uploaded to the team photos to make sure. 166.5.

I started the weekend off with lots of yard work. Hauling bags of dirt, digging up old wood borders and concrete stones. Digging up the ground and adding new dirt and planted a bunch of flowers and a couple of container planters. Worked 6 hrs in the yard. Was sore and tired but boy did I sleep good and I know I burnt some calories off. Good start to the contest. Oh and the weather here in Houston this weekend has been beautiful.

When you send the email I just give me your username here in Spark and I can keep track of it that way. Dont forget that the first weigh in is next Sunday by Midnight. You get a strike if your dont report by then. You can report your weigh in as early as Friday but no later than Sunday at 11:59PM EST. Good luck. I will confirm starting weight in pictures as I get them.

oh my goodness - this will be the perfect challenge to get me started again. I know I have gained weight and need to loose it and get my energy back. Count me in. Thanks for letting us use the Wii to do our weight. Guess it would be good to make a character with our spark people name so that it shows on the picture.

I just want to say thanks again to all who make this contest possible. Tema, Amber, Turtle_Mom, Lobo, and all the rest of the participants. Not only is it great motivation with the prizes, but also I have come to know some wonderful friends because of it. Living healthy and meeting friends, what else could a person ask for?

Id say im in it to win it! BUT doubt I will be able to loose much weight this go round...close to goal so If I loose 4-8 lbs this go round I will be so happy!

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too can become great.

I could not stand by and let the biggest motivator of weight loss for this group go by. I think on average our groups have lost 100+ pounds per contest we have.

You must be a active participant on the team.....you can do whatever exercises you want just lose weight....it's judge by percentage lost not lbs lost....there's really no certain amount of time needed to be on sparks just post a couple days a week

If You're tired or starting over stop giving up

Are there activities or challenges involved or only the weigh-ins? Trying to get an idea of the time commitment required.

Thanks again,

Cheri

I've never participated in this challenge before. Can you post a few more details about what is involved? Is it just weekly weigh-ins?

Thanks!
