Thanks Marsha! Gotta keep at it, though! I'm getting sleepy and lazy. Time to get off the couch and jump about the living room, I guess. My Spark videos haven't been streaming properly this week. Frustrating.

We have a Christmas banquet at school this Friday. I have a nice sparkly top that looks great. When I've worn it before, I've had to expend a lot of effort to suck everything in! I will be nice and relaxed this time!

Have a great Thursday, everyone!

you are doing fantastic cupcakz, wow 30 pounds, so you deserve a couple cookies, just gotta stop at a couple,
me, my cookies were so (are) good, but 1 yesterday and 1 today, I mainly like making them, eating is secondary, I like BREAD, my biggest downfall, all kinds.
but hopefully at least 125 by the 12th

These darn colds! Cadboro, I have one too and I feel miserable.

I made my goal of 120 today - not sure how, being I just hit 121 yesterday. 30 pounds off in 7 and a half months. emoticon

So, to celebrate I promptly ate 3 Christmas cookies. emoticon Merry, fresh baked cookies are SO hard to resist!

Oh well, I tracked them and ate less. I've reset my goal a little lower. Will see how things go.

Let's keep exercising this week - balance off those cookies and other treats!

I got up first thing I jumped on the scales, and there it was 126.0 so I stayed the same, luck weigh in day because I do fluctuate 1 pound up but not today, so let us see what the next 12 days bring, I know it wont be much but sure would be nice to change my scale down. and I can do it, now the question is will I do it emoticon

Woo hoo! So excited - down 2 pounds to 121. Close to goal, which I will likely reset a little lower.

Love this challenge! Thanks Maci! Keep the positive attitudes going, girls!

3 minutes until the 1st! Don't forget it's weigh in day today ladies! When you wake up run to the scale and post, I will post all new wts on the 2nd. (for you later w/i's) Good luck!

If you lose wt this w/i, Horray for you! Woohoo!
If you don't, no worries keep trying, we have a month till 2013, change your goal to be less wt than you started this yr!
If it's to late for that, make your goal to not gain the 7 pds avg gain from Holloween till New Yrs!
We can do it! We are strong sparklers! We can beat the odds in style. Welcome to Dec!

I am excited to be posting my weight loss - I have lost 1.4 lb when I weighed in yesterday for a total weight lost of 7.8 lb since I started. I don't think I will make the 12 lbs by Dec 12 but this challenge has certainly helped me to get closer. So thanks so much for this challenge emoticon

way to go golf lady
yes, I loved my zumba class, we all bought these things to wear over our hips so we can really make them jiggle, it will be lots of fun, even most of the men are liking it.
tomorrow, I will weigh in, hope for 125 or so, but probably 127 emoticon

Good night ladies, just can't stay awake one more minute, read all the posts, Mary, thanks for the Sat reminder, I just almost talked my way into eating another late night meal. Hubs will be pulling in from Oregon in the next hr, and I fixed spaghetti for the bunch. Ifr I want to be under 160 in nov I best not partake.

*Golf- where are you going? You have been doing great on this challenge!
*Cupcake- I work my touche off everyday for hrs on the courts, I should be a size 2 too! I guess you have to put down the FF to achieve that! (getting better everyday)
*Merry- I hope you loved your Zumba class.
*Brenda- woohoo, another 1/2 pd. You rock!
*Sunny- We can be in the 150's by Dec together. You are almost there.
*Ms Lizzy- YES! We can do it!

Cya on on Sat! good night sparklers!

Well, two days until Saturday. That has kept me going this week - if I want to see a change come Saturday, it is up to me to make it happen!

Merry, you do so much exercise, you are probably in the best shape of all of us! You rock!

I'm a bit discouraged by this "meno-pot". I'd heard of it, but didn't really believe it. My stomach shouldn't be sticking out anymore, but it is! Advice anyone? Or just get used to it? Hoping that a few more pounds will help.

Time for a SP video and some weights. Have a great Friday!

It was tough to go back and find this, sorry I dropped the ball girls, you did fabulous in my absence. I hear we have some really successful Christmas Count me in's out there! Anyone who has been trying and caring about them self is a big success to me. I will update it again the 1st! This gives me abit more time to catch up w/my sparkin. So ck out where you were last , let me know if your numbers have moved towards the goal, and pat your back for still sparkin in the most sparse time for taking care of yourself. You rock!

Congratulations on your 10 pound loss! That is just wonderful. Great job. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

MERRYMARY

You are right, you do have to eat enough calories. Our bodies are so very strange and demanding.

I remember years ago, doing fasting, and shakes, etc. That really is the very easiest way to lose weight, and it is a big rush because you loose so much so fast. But it is a very unhealthy way, and an artificial way, and totally unsupportable.

Been there, done that, begun all over again.

Golfgma and Golflady

Maintaining is always a great thing. Good for you.

Wishing you all a lovely day tomorrow.

I am having trouble realizing that Sat will be Dec. Time is just flying!

God Bless my friends.

a nice cool day here, no rain, but air was damp so maybe tomorrow, got up with the blah's so did almost nothing, but did get out and walked 50 minutes, almost got my 10,000 steps so perhaps, I can do that, doing nothing, I also ate almost nothing, so sure did not go over, in fact have to find, something to pick up my calories a bit.

Just maintaining here. Getting ready for a mini vacation to have Christmas with a friend in Tennessee. We share December birthdays and will both be watching calories closely since she became diabetic this year. emoticon

all the senior citizens trying to sort out drug plans, it equates
to lots of computer time.

Sounds like we are all doing some of the nesting stuff with the cold weather.

I have been purging paperwork working on bills, crocheting, and even some cooking.

Will have leftovers for the next few days.

We are all doing the best we can, so take it one day at a time, and enjoy that day.

Have a great Tuesday

I went to the gym this morning, aerobics class, enjoy it a bunch, but wears me out, I walked awhile on the treadmill but need a nice long walk this afternoon, maintaining my calories, if not my weight. I am maintaining, it just doesn't come off.

Hello All - I have been absent. Dealing with many other life and work issues. But have been maintaining the 5 (or maybe less...) pounds I lost when I started this challenge. I feel very good about that. Thanks for the support.

This turtle is to remind myself that slow but steady wins the race.

Good day here too, girls. Puttered around the kitchen cleaning cupboards and the pantry. Then I baked 2 batches of gingersnaps. Will take one batch to school tomorrow for coffee time. Sampled too many cookies and had to cut way back on supper, but my calories will be okay for the day.

Beautiful weather for walking - bundled up, but at least there was no wind. Did weights, and I've started adding Yoga stretches. Holding a Plank for 1 minute is the challenge - can do it, but it's definitely tough!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

I had another good day, worked hard around the house, in the garage (getting Christmas stuff out, and tossing at the same time)
I have had my eating under control, and feeling good.

Sounds as though you all had a good holiday, for those of us who celebrate it, so good to know.

As far as the challenge, I am pretty sure I won't make the 12 pounds, but I have lost some, have put a couple back on, but feel as though I can get rid of that now. I am glad I did it, because I am still down from my starting weight.

Going to work on getting off the couple of pounds I have found momentarily, but am sure I will be better off because of this challenge all the way through the season.

Have a great Sunday my friends.

I have been giving this 12/12/12 some deep thought, and I think maybe we should do something that I can attain emoticon not sure what, but at least I am not gaining, and that is a big plus, and I have not given up, well actually on the 12 pounds I have but would like to see a loss, and just maybe I will
back to getting my 10,000 steps in so that will help

I'm working on getting rid of my muffin tops and they are shrinking. Gave up frozen yogurt and have switched to plain Greek Yogurt with fresh or frozen fruit and it is just as good and much healthier. My muffin tops are shrinking. Really bothering to see the muffin tops under my tee shirts and am happy to not see them now. My jeans are fitting nicely.

I seem to have settled into being 142 for the time being so will stick with that for now.

I did way better yesterday than Thanksgiving. Not as many steps
but helping DH make his filled raisin cookies was more strength
than cardio.
