I signed up for the May challenge but never kept up. I'm happy to say I lost three and a half pounds in May! I hope to keep the momentum up. At a pound a week I should be 50 pounds lighter come April 30 next year!

I'm at a bit over 250 so this month I hope to be firmly planted in the 240s. My overall goal is to feel better, have more energy and stop saying no to going to the park with my dds because I'm too tired. I'm doing weight watchers.

Right now I'm trying to survive the end of the school year. I live in Canada and we still have three weeks to go. Hopefully I'll be too busy to think about snacking!

So happy to join you all!

Which leads me to the QOTD for Sunday, June 2, 2013: Do you think your past weight loss experiences, good or bad, make it easier or harder for you to move forward with your healthy lifestyle?

I will be back tomorrow with my own answer and replies.
Gah isn't that the truth. I need to stop bringing up the past and accept not only each day but each moment for what it is: a new possibility. Opportunity for change.

QOTD- for me my past weight loss is a reminder that I can do it. But it also reminds me of how much harder I will have to work to get there.

Example: I know I can run for 5 miles but I got so out of habit that I had to retrain my body to run a block. It's more of a mental road block for me. I usually fall off the wagon when I get sick or injured then I just give up. I know my body can be so much stronger and so can my mental barriers

.
I just need to fortify my brain army with positive people who Understand it isnt as simple as eating less- it's a mind game that takes constant awareness. I love that I have lost weight before because I know I can do it again.

to you, too, Rose! There are all sorts of articles about how to pick that final number but I have a feeling that you will know it when you see than number again -- and remember it is just a number, not who you are.

Just have to balance good eating and exercise with the bajillion school-year-end activities going on this month!
Ooo, a June vacation to California! Sounds like fun!

My name is Tara I'm 31 and live with my DH and our two dogs. I have recently had some health issues so I'm in between jobs at the moment. I have been very overweight for many years and started losing weight in feb.
my June goal is to loose 6 lbs
My long term goals are by sept.trip to have lost 22lbs

And to reach my first major goal by feb. 2014.
Sounds like you've had success with WW this year!

Great goal and a great long term plan!

QOTD I try not to compare myself to others, including my past self, but that is can be hard sometimes. Each day it is easier to just enjoy and accept where I am and the progress I am making but it is not something that comes naturally -- I have to choose how I want to feel.

My 5k was fun yesterday, except the course was short so it wasn't truly a 5k. It was a very small group running the race and they did the best they could -- we were supporting the Disabled Vets and that was the important thing. I was very happy with my pace. I think it would have been even better if I wasn't still recovering from the half marathon I did a week ago. It is a good way to start my Dumbo training.

Please be sure and PM your starting weight and goal to Flossbolna, if you haven't already.

Happy Sunday all!

Well hello everyone. Managed to find some free WiFi access at last. Love you guys loads, but I'm still not paying the £10 per hour that the hotel wants to give me WiFi access there!

Weather is lovely, I've managed to walk around 8 miles in the 48 hours that I've been here, but it's too hilly to consider running really.

Food-wise I'm doing OK. Not brilliant, but OK. I've resisted all biscuits, chocolates and sweets, but I have caved to one dessert..........creme brulee with strawberries and shortcake. Given that it followed a rather excellent fillet steak I fell into a Le Cellier mood!!!!!!

Last night I managed a chicken salad but tonight is our big social function. Melon for starter, chicken and veg for the main, but I'm having local cheese for dessert. Will make sure I walk loads more tomorrow!!!

You can do it Ana!
It's definitely not about eating less, it's about eating right and moving more. We didn't put it all on in a day, it won't come off in a day.

Happy Sunday all!
Are you just doing the 1/2?

I'm starting to second guess myself on doing both. I know I can do the 10k easy but the 1/2 is making me nervous.
I can not misstep in terms of training but I still have no idea what I'm doing. I don't know if I'm doing anything right. I'm pretty much winging it with stuff I learn here and in books and magazines. And from DS16.
We do have a running club that DS runs with in the summer but they are all older experienced runners and don't really seem like the type that welcome fat, out of shape newbies. They do meet Mondays and Thursdays in the summer and DS runs with them those days and I usually stick around so I might run with them, I don't know.
But if I'm going to do the GSC I have got to get out of the 15-15:30 time frame. I'm not comfortable with that because I know I'll be starting in the last corral and I don't want to get swept.

Oh the reason why I posted in the first place. Found a really cool quote in the Runners World magazine I'm reading.

Your body will argue that there is no justifiable reason to continue. Your only recourse is to call on your spirit, which fortunately functions independently of logic.
- Tim Noakes author of The Lore of Running

Of course I'd love to lose a lot of weight. But my goal is to finish the PHM. Right now, I want that more than a number on a scale.
Looking forward to getting to know everyone!
I am sure you will be able to make some new friends! I think we are a very welcoming bunch and I can only encourage everyone to engage in the daily chatter!

Hi, I'm Rose and I am a chronic stress eater. Now that we got that out of the way...I have been doing WISH challenges since 2010. Lost a bunch, found out I have a severe gluten issue, ran a bunch of races, and more recently gained some weight back. But my DH reminded me this morning, that we have had a bunch of stress over the last year or so, and that all in all I am doing good and to cut myself some slack. Yep, he is a good guy.

I am 45, work part-time for a non-profit, and have one ds who will be in graduate school this fall. I am a g-f vegetarian.

I set a goal this month of 2.8 pounds. Which is totally doable if my get my head in the game. I think part of the problem that I am having is I have no idea what my long term goal should be. When I lost in 2010/11 I got down to a weight that I did not think I would see again--most of that was through hard work, but at the end I was feeling so miserable with the gluten issues, that I really was not eating much, and was having some major malabsorption issues. So....having a hard time figuring out where I want to be. In order to see that low number it is going to take a huge amount of discipline--and I just don't know if it is worth it. Ten pounds will put me at a comfortable, maintainable weight. Twenty will put me back at my 2011 weight. We'll see. I am as always a work in progress.

My fitness goals--keep up with my mile a day for 2013 challenge, keep going to yoga, and run at least 3 days a week.

Welcome to all the new folks! Glad to have you.
Sorry that you are having such a hard time at the moment Rose!

But I must say, reading your story always gives me so much inspiration to just never give up! Thank you so much for being such a wonderful example!

(For those of you newbies, I live in the boondocks of NH and have to drive minimum of 30 minutes to virtually everything.) This is an "at location" meeting held in a church in the next town over....just about a 25 minute drive (maybe 22 if I rush ). Plus since it will be just me, I will be in charge of all of it...weigh-ins, sales, supplies, inventory. Sort of like my own little business!

I had initially wanted to hold off on committing to having my own meetings until the fall (figured I could stay busy just subbing in for vacations over the summer) since DD's schedule is still crazy, but I could not pass up the opportunity to have a meeting close to home!

Anyhow, thanks again for all of your support, encouraging words, and well wishes....it truly helped. :group hug:

I'm here at the Y with DD for swim practice, but didn't have it in me for a big workout, so I rested in the car for an hour, now I am catching up here, then I will study for my WW presentation for this coming week. I will get enough exercise this afternoon with weeding, mulching, planting, etc.

TTYL...............P
I am so happy that your other meeting was much better! And this sounds like the perfect opportunity for you! I am sure the people will love you as their coach once they get to know you!

So I am Amanda. I work in child welfare for the state but have just recently decided I want a career change... to teaching! That way I will fit in with all you teachers No, I have just come to the realization that my field of work has just gotten more and more overwhelming and I am not making a difference. I would love to work more with the kids and spend more time with my own. Now just to find a way to make that work... On a personal level, I am engaged to DF, who makes me crazy at times but I still love him. And have two wonderful kids... my 6 yr old daughter who just finished kinder and my 12 yr old son who just finished his first year of middle school They also make me crazy at times but I them so so much

Anytway, looking forward to great month, one in which I get my butt back on track!

Magdalene for hostessing and Lisa for coaching!!
Welcome back Amanda! Great to see you again!

Sounds like you are truly planning quite a career change! But I can understand this very well. I work in the legal system and am always amazed at the patience the social workers have. I could never imagine doing their job!!

DS10 had a game at 12:30 followed by awards and group pictures. We pulled in the driveway at 2:12, showered both kids, and ran back out for a birthday party at 3:00! I went bathing suit shopping with a friend while the kids were at the party. In the past, I've hated bathing suit shopping. It wasn't so bad today Now we are just relaxing and debating our evening. If it's not raining (which it is supposed to), we are heading to a friend's house for a fire. If it rains, we may head to my sister's to hang out or just stay home & relax.

I'm crazy busy this week, so I hope I can check in here & there. I will be out of town with my sister on Wednesday & Thursday for a sister getaway. Then my family leaves Friday for NC and the beach. So, I have to get everything done on Monday & Tuesday. Oh, did I add that DS10 has an honor's society banquet Monday night and drum lessons Tuesday night? And I thought summer would be less busy!

I'm going to go do some laundry, dishes, and some general cleaning. Oh yes, that's my Saturday afternoon, do not be jealous!

Have a great night!

Jill
Wow, you have a lot planned! Hope the week is not too stressful and you manage to eat healthy!!

I'm in, again, and I'm also going to try and be more active on the thread this month. I think I managed to check in *once* in May. :P June promises to be nuts around here, but I'm back in as a maintainer. Here's me:

I'm 40, mom to 2 DDs (8 and 6) and wife to DH Eric (DEA on the boards). We live in northern Virginia, about 20 miles west of DC. We are big Disney fans, to put it mildly. I work two jobs, one entirely telecommuting and one telecommuting 4 days a week. I sing, I run, and I read for fun. I started running just over a year ago and got the bug - I've now completed 3 5Ks, a 10K, a 10-miler, and 2 half marathons. I have three more half marathons this year, and I'm signed up to do the Dopey Challenge at WDW in January! I'm currently doing ecoaching with Jeff Galloway to train for that event, and so far that's been great.

I grew up in Connecticut and moved to Boston a couple of years after college - serious Boston sports fan here. I was a skinny kid until high school, when I started gaining weight. From then on, I was always 30-40 pounds over a good weight for my frame and height. In 2001 (3 months before 9/11), I moved to DC to join DH (then DBoyfriend) when we got tired of being long distance. We got engaged just before the 2001 holidays, and I decided to get my weight under control at last. I'd done WW before and had been successful, but I always stopped going. In 2002, I dropped the weight, made lifetime, and kept it off until I got pregnant with DD (now 8). Pregnancy was brutal on my weight. I would watch what I ate and *still* balloon up - my OB told me that some women's bodies just hoard everything when they're pregnant, and she assured me I'd be able to get the weight back off. I gained 80 pounds with my first, lost almost all of it, and then gained 60 with my second. I got all but the last 20 off, and boy were they stubborn pounds. I recommitted to WW in early 2012 and lost it all. I set my goal up a few pounds from where it was in 2002 - my body just isn't the same! I've been maintaining for a year now.

But I still find it hard to maintain. I still get ticked off that I can't just inhale everything I want to inhale when I want to inhale it. I still resent that I'm someone who will always gain easily and lose with difficulty. But I've done this, so I know it's possible, and I know I can stay there, with reasonable efforts on my part. I splurge now and then, and vacations are never kind, poundwise, but I've always been able to get things back under control.

I've been sitting high in my maintain range this past month, and my goal for June is to get back to actual goal and maybe a smidge under...we leave June 29 for almost two weeks in California (woohoo!), and I'd really like to leave on that vacation in the best shape I can be in. Just have to balance good eating and exercise with the bajillion school-year-end activities going on this month!

XOXO

Hi Liz!! I think many of us know how difficult maintaining is! I hope I will get it right this time - and find it very encouraging to have people like you and Pam here on the thread that are at that point!

I've lost 20 pounds since January with the help of my BL family and My Fitness Pal. I have 40-50 more pounds to go, depending on how I feel when I get to 135.

Short term goals:
June lose 5 pounds
run more than 6 minutes at one time at 5.5 mph
exercise at least 30 minutes every day (didn't do today, but did walk through the entire Ikea store, that was a workout.)
30 day shred at least 15 days this month

Long term goal:
Glass Slipper Challenge 2014
weigh 125-135
fit into the denim shorts that I wore when we lived in Hawaii.
Hi Buffy, those are great goals! What is the Glass Slipper Challenge? That sounds interesting.

I have a brown suede leather mini skirt that I bought directly after my final exam in college to celebrate when I was in vacation in London. That skirt is the thing I want to fit into again!! Not sure I would wear it in public though as it is really very very short!!!

Right now I'm trying to survive the end of the school year. I live in Canada and we still have three weeks to go. Hopefully I'll be too busy to think about snacking!

So happy to join you all!
Hope the stressful times don't lead to more eating!! I think I never am to busy to snack unfortunately...

Thanks for the reminder about the PMs!

Sounds like a fun race even if it was not what you expected!! And for a good cause!

I have updated the first page with everyone who signed up so far. Those who have their name in bold are the ones who already sent me their start weight.

Please have a look whether you find your name on the first page and if you haven't sent me your weight, please do so!!


Hope everyone is having a great Sunday. Mine is nearly over. The weather is horrible here, we do have serious floods in some areas already from all the rain we had for the last week. Even my jogging path where I ran today must have been flooded at some point this weekend as there was quite a layer of mud in some places.

Had a good run and am eating very well this weekend! I am starting to get used to Weight Watchers, I signed up online a little over a week ago. The first week was a little difficult and I guess that's why I did not see as much of an weight loss on Friday as I had hoped (0.7 pounds - better than nothing). But now I am very motivated and did some useful shopping yesterday. Let's hope this week will be a little better!

Maybe you could wear it with some thick tights/ leggings and tall boots. If you fit into it you should rock it.

Hi, everyone! It's a busy day here, so just a quick answer.

QOTD: It kinda flip flops. Some days I'm so sick of being overweight/obese and past failed attempts that I get mad enough to change and it's easy. Other days, the weight makes me feel defeated or the kids and husband inadvertently derail my efforts, which has frequently happened in the past. I'm trying to get the family on board this time.

QOTD Saturday, June 1, 2013: Please introduce yourself if you haven't already and share your goal for the challenge. How does your goal for June fit into your overall goals for the rest of the year?
Hi. I'm Susan--this is my facebook page-- (which I have recently re-discovered) https://www.facebook.com/susan.day.100
Tells pretty much everything about me.

I'm starting out at 143 which is cool for me 'cause I've been battling yet another UTI. Lost 4 pounds last month, my goal was only 2 so really happy with that. My goal is 3.
I think if I reach that this month I'll just focus on maintaining and building muscle for awhile.

I will be back tomorrow with my own answer and replies.

Easier for sure.

Having kind of a rough time the last week or so. Have another uti--I'm getting really frustrated with these, in the last few years I seem to get one every 2-3 months. I'm going to up my cranberry pills and I think I'll give up coffee on my days off. Maybe spend less time in the jacuzzi.

It's been nice here so I rode my bike yesterday checked out a new produce stand on the way home, it was closed but the lady gave me a "prize' because it was my first visit. I got a big bag of spinach, baby potatoes, onions and a cucumber. It's all local organic. Had a lot of eggs so I made a couple of spinach quiche which I never did before--turned out pretty good really.
