Final week

This has been a better month but with weigh in less than a week away I am starting to worry. One positive note, at the beginning I said one of my goals was to walk the stairs at penitentiary glen with my mom, I accomplished that this morning, and will probably feel it tomorrow morning. I have a bad feeling that I will be a pound short of the second half and that would be disappointing. Good luck to everyone see you Saturday

Help!, don't know if I am going to make it, not going to give up even if I don't make it. This is a challenge for me the past two years and I relaxed a little too much the first two months. 17 day diet seems to be going OK, my scale at home is not consistent. Should find out in about 10 days, yikes!! That went fast!

Still struggling, had much better results last year but I still have time to try and make it to the second half. Trying the 17 day diet that someone mentioned at weigh in(not good at remembering names)I think today is day 7, not sure on progress since my scale has been acting up, need to visit the dreaded red scale.

Weigh in

Well I have a lot of work ahead of me if I want to continue. After losing some the first month I gained some back. No real excuse, I could have done a lot more. I did hear some good numbers Saturday, congratulations to those who lost weight.

Weigh in week

Not ready for Saturday, but I have some time left before the cut off date, need to keep up with vitabot, its hard to remember everything. Turned 40 Saturday, I i am old now, should get a 10 lb bonus at weigh in, lol. I was thinking last night, i wonder if i could I lose 40 lbs while I am 40 years old. That's less than a pound a week, but so far even that has been a challenge. Right now I need to focus on 5% by next weigh in and go from there. Good luck everyone, see you Saturday

Another week, kind of do not want to weigh myself right now. Two weeks til weigh in, I really need to do what I signed up to do. A lot of distractions so far and I shouldn't put losing weight on the back burner but I think I have. Good luck to everyone this week, see you in two weeks

Got put back on a medicine that may have contributed to my major weight gain 11 years ago, hopefully it wasn't the reason. Need to catch up on vitabot, really don't like it too much. Hope it warms up soon, supposed to be a mixed weather week. I will be turning 40 here pretty soon, but age is just a number, so is weight, JUST JOKING have a great week if anyone reads this.
