Not a lot of time today, but just wanted to catch everyone up on what to do this weekend.

BTW, loving reading about all the veggies.

This weekend marks our first weigh in.

To be included in this week's results I need to receive your weigh in by Sunday at 7:00pm. All I need is your current weight sent to me by pm.

The thread will be updated with percentage lost either on Sunday night or sometime Monday. Updates of percentage lost will only occur once a week.

What does this mean for you? You can choose to weigh in at any time over the next couple of days. We are reporting goals not on how much you lost in xx days, but percentage lost for the month. If you choose to skip this week's weigh in, that is ok too.

Just keep in mind that the thread will only be updated once a week. So if you send your weigh in on Tuesday (after the update) you will not see your results until the following Sunday or Monday. If you send your weight in Tuesday and then again Saturday, I will update based on the most recent weight.

If you gain and your percentage lost goes down, that will be reflected, BUT percentages will not go below 0.

Thank you for your understanding of the process.

Officially here are the weigh in dates for January:
January 5, 12, 19, 26, 31

Maintainers will be updated:
January 5, 12, 19 and 26.


Hope everyone has a great night!

I like zucchini cut into strips, shaken in a ziplock bag with olive oil & basil, then grilled on the barbie. But just in the summer. I also like butternut squash soup, having recently discovered it after a lifelong aversion to orange food (not Doritos & Cheez Its, though......I mean real orange food like pumpkin pie, oranges, sweet potatoes, etc.)

I will be hurting tomorrow, I forgot what a task master Jillian is. But I did it!

And catching up...

How often do you weigh/ get on the scale?
Yeah, I weigh every single day, morning & night. Like someone else said, the fluctuations bother me less that way.

Some former students who are now college freshmen came back & visited today...they told me they were the best in their language class (that's what I teach), that they felt so prepared, etc. Needed to hear that today, very validating for a teacher

I am a reading teacher too! Nice to hear your success with a student. It is so rewarding. Do you teach any special programs? I am trained in Reading Recovery, SpellREAD and Leveled Literacy.

Hey Jill ... nice to hear from you! My middle son has been accepted to Penn State, New Ken, Pitt Johnstown, Slippery Rock and IUP. IUP is his top choice right now. Before Christmas he was asked to interview for a scholarship and we found out a few days ago that he got it! He doesn't know what he wants to do so IUP is a bigger school with a lot of options.

How is your crew doing? You NEED to change your signature ... you have a count down! (I am jealous. ) I hope your planning is going well. Congrats on your husband's graduation.

You seem to be having a better school year this year. I hope it continues.

Yeah! Another reading teacher!
I am a Title I K-2 reading and math teacher. I, too, am trained in Leveled Literacy and a few other reading programs that we don't use any more. I also have National Board Certification in reading. I love it when my student finally feels successful. So rewarding!

Happy Friday my friends!


Sorry I didn't get to pop on here again last night. It ended up being a crazy evening, despite not having the 2 hour round-trip drive for swim practice. Hopefully they will have wi-fi at tonight's swim venue and I can spend the time catching up with you all.

I faced the music on the scale today for the first time since the crazy unplanned Christmas eating-a-thon commenced. I'm up about 3 pounds... in just 12 days!! I have NO EXCUSES and NO ONE TO BLAME but myself! In fact, I was rather pleased that it was just 3 pounds and not 10!! But I'm back on track and hopefully can see those 3 gone in 2 weeks or so (I lose very slowly these days).

Did some run intervals on the TM last night, and other than my bladder issues, it felt great! I had a good pace and didn't get winded or a side-stitch at any point in time. But I definitely need some new running shoes! Mine are shot!

Hope everyone here is well and healthy and feeling great and IN CONTROL!! I know I feel so much better being back in good control of my eating.

I've got 3 minutes until my students arrive. I will be back tonight!...........P

Good Friday morning!

Here is your question of the day.

QOTD Friday, January 4, 2013

I have been thinking about this all week--which for those who know me, that means another deep thinking kind of question. You don't have to answer if you don't feel comfortable, but at least put some thought into it.

How do you handle situations that you can't control? Are you a roll with the punches kind of person or if things don't go as planned does your day (week, month) spiral out of control? How does all this effect your healthy eating and exercise?

I know that there are multiple questions there, but I want you to think about it all in terms of how you handle situations and how it effects your weight.

And as always--say something positive about yourself.


We are having new kitchen counter tops installed this morning. And I have to go to the dmv this morning, but I should be back later this afternoon.

Goal: drop 5lbs. Going to be tough since any physical activity (even walking) is causing an increase in pain to arm. Hoping that after they plate the bones back together that will improve.

Goal: exercise regularly...even if it is short Hoping I can stationary bike in the interm till arm is better

Goal:work on healthier eating

Really struggling because I want to give up before I have started because I am so frustrated with the arm but trying to remain positive and find the things I can do..... And enjoy y husband waiting on me and doing all the dishes and laundry!!!!!
Prayers for your arm continuing. And nice that you can enjoy the DH waiting on you!! I think that foot massages would probably make your arm feel better, don't you??

My starting weight is higher than I have ever been. Quite embarrassed is the truth. But I am admitting to it now!

I have set a very conservative goal for the entire year as per the doctors orders. As he stated anything above it is an incentive for me. He wanted me more to get on an exercise program that I will continue for my LIFE. Not just for the weight loss. I suffer from Fibro and an unnamed auto-immune. I take meds that cause weight gain. The problem is that is also AN excuse.

I bought 2 yoga tapes and 1 Leslie Sansone walking.

Today will be weigh in day, but we have food for the family and company. I am going to enjoy and tomorrow morning I will be off and ready to commit 100%.

Have you done the Leslie Sansone videos before? I really enjoy them. I own several and don't do them as religiously as I used to, but they are great for days when I just can't face the TM and don't make it to the gym. Her music leaves a bit to be desired, but I find her engaging enough to tolerate the bad music. Which ones did you buy??

1. We didn't do formal intros because I wanted to hit the ground running. Give us a quick intro and tell us something fun about yourself!

2. Don't forget your positive about yourself for the day.



If you haven't had a chance yet, pm your starting weight and goal in the next day or so.

This is how it should look:

starting weight 150; goal 5 pounds

Maintainers: indicate your goal range (+/- 4 pounds) and how many weeks you would like to maintain along with your target weight.


Rose.... sorry I haven't PM'ed you yet. I gave myself "permission" to wait to weigh in today (since my usual weigh-in day is Friday), so that will be coming along soon.

I will have to do my intro later, as my students will be here in 90 seconds!!

My positive for today.... I am having a bad hair day AND a bad scale day, but I managed to keep it in perspective and still feel pretty good about myself today!

TTYL.................P

I am a very much roll with the punches type of person. It takes a lot to bother me. Case in point: Last summer, both of my parents were hospitalized for 3 months, my uncle died, and we had to give away my dog due to my son's allergies. I didn't break down about it until almost Christmas. Not saying that it was healthy, but I am good at keeping the head in my game and keeping myself focused no matter what happens. I did, however, not pay attention to my own health during that period. I didn't gain any weight, but I maintained my very high weight, and did not work out at all.

Something positive about myself: I had a very rough training session last night with a trainer I've never had before (mine was on vacation) and he pushed me way above my limits (and I puked). I can't wait to go back to the gym tomorrow morning so I can do better.
