Don't get too stressed about it! I was just updating my progress last week and noticed that Nancy had updated her first entry, too. That's what I was replying to. It's on page one of this thread. Sorry to cause you stress!

Well, with everything going on this summer in combination with being a tad bit lazy, i needed a new start.

A couple coworkers and i decided to do a weightloss incentive thing together..We measured and weighed ourselves on 8/25...We will do so again on 9/25 and at the end of every month. The deal is if we stay the same, or lose the weight/inches, its good, but if we gain, 10 dollars goes into the pot..At the end, the person that loses the most, gets the money..

This is what im starting at..

157 lbs (not happy with this at all!)
Waist-29.5 inches
Arms-11 inches
Legs-23.2 inches
Hips-42.9 inches
chest-35.4 inches

My Mini goal is to get down to 150 by Nov 12 (when i leave for teh cruise)
Ideally, id love to be down to 140 again..
I am drinking at least 64oz of water a day as well as exercising...now i just need to stay motivated

My NEW and IMPROVED Goal: (The National Body Challenge didn't like my original goal) BMI of 19.0; healthier eating habits; increased muscle tone, strength and endurance; better-fitting (or loose!) clothes.

My Plan: Modified version of low-carb, similar to South Beach based on the gestational diabetes diet. And exercise, exercise, exercise! DD is my perpetual "kick in the rear" -- I can loan her out to anyone else who needs a 5yo running buddy...

My Progress: Getting closer: BMI = 19.9 (down from 21.3).

Jumping back in to this thread to keep me accountable.

Started 1/5/09. So far I am down 18 lbs as of today.

I have much farther to go but I am positive that I can continue eating healthy. I had some major challenges this weekend as we were traveling & I did not let eating out deter me from my goal. I stayed on WW's even at IHOP!
