Hi all. I have now lost 60 pounds and I feel better every day. Things I couldn't even think about doing before are getting real easy each day. Oh Thankyou all and especially Spark People.

Only 40 pounds to go and then we will relook at where I want to go to from there.

Ouch! That sounds painful!

Hopefully you'll be able to find something else you enjoy doing in the meantime!

You girls are so great! I've been stuck at 167 for a number of weeks....gained a little which hasn't come off but it's my own fault for not getting enough exercise in. I had to give up the ice skating due to tendonitis! darn! That was so good. Guess I'll motivate to the tapes again and the ski machine.

AC, about 50 pounds lost is AWESOME!

You've got a great attitude about Thanksgiving, too!

Good luck at your dance show!

Hi all:

I'm a little late checking in myself, but better late than never! I was on fire for September and half of October, then went out of town, and immediately went downhill. I ate myself silly and gained 10 pounds, but now I've lost all but a pound and a half, and I am determined that Thanksgiving will be treated as it should be--and not a food free-for-all! I hope to be in the 130's by the Dance Show on December 20! That way my instructor won't have to work so hard when he does the death drop on me!

A little late on the check in but I'm here! I've been bouncing back and forth between 157 and 160 for about the last 6-8 weeks, but considering my track record in food/exercise, I consider that a victory! If I can stay here (or lower!) till the first of the year, I'll be thrilled. I feel empowered just with the fact that I've stuck with SP this long!

emoticon to everyone that's still around!

This was the first month that I went onto maintenance, and I held steady so I'm pretty impressed with myself. I'm back into losing mode now, and so far so good!

See you at the next check in!

Well, I'm back into it stronger than ever. I have been dealing with losing a job, health issues and lack of motivation. But in spite of all of that and with the help of some face to face accountability, I have lost 23 pounds since the beginning of October. I'm thrilled! I can relate to the "girls" issue. I had a race to see which would stick out further...my "girls" or my waist. My "girls" are back in the lead. Wahoo! emoticon

Hi Team

Well I've been bad for the last few months. I went from a low of 171 lbs to currently 177 or 178 lbs. However, I feel great cause I'm eating good healthy food. Just a tad to much maybe and I haven't had time to exercise.

Between breaking two microwaves, a dying computer and now home improvements, I feel lucky that I'm getting my life together. We're downsizing and unloading stress at the same time. So we're moving in the right direction. I'm also still wearing my new size 16 jeans which I refuse to give up. I'm not a slave to the metal monster(scale) either. YES!

My new motivation is to place our camera where I can see it everyday. Come Christmas I want a skinny me in the picture.

Best to The Team! Thank you for keeping track of the time. It's really important to see how far we've come and how much is still to be done.

In harmony, Bonny Bev.

In harmony, Bev.
