Welcome Gina and 8th Dwarf!

I am a SAMER this week. Not good but not bad either. I am worried about this upcoming week... I'm traveling to Alabama for half the week, and eating on the road for me is hard. I have lots of food allergies and aversions, so eating out is difficult. I have a hotel that has a fridge and microwave in my room, so I'm hoping to stock it with a few healthy things and to be able to microwave some soup or something along those lines for dinner. And I will keep tracking like I have been... that's been helping keep me on track.

Good luck to everyone for the upcoming week!

I'm up 1.1. Disappointing, but I'm hoping it's only temporary.

Hi all! Long time peep checking in after a too-long absence. I think I'm in need of some major accountability again. 2011 started off great. I got down to 140 - 10 lbs shy of my goal - by the end of July. Then I got a little lazy, slowly gained about 12, and finished the year at 152. I managed to lose about 4 pounds the first two weeks of January, and was feeling pretty good about myself again. Then I was shipped off to the UK for 10 days for work. Working long hours without access to a gym, dining out for lunch and dinner, eating dessert with many of those meals (they have some wonderful desserts in England), and having a pint or two (or more) every night did some MAJOR damage. I haven't stepped on a scale yet, but the way my clothes are fitting and based on what I see in the mirror, I am anticipating at least a 10 pound gain. If that holds true, I'll be about 30 pounds from my goal of 130. Which is soooo depressing when I think about how close I was just a few months ago. But I know what I have to do. Back to following the Weight Watchers plan religiously (the only thing that really seems to work for me); go to the gym at least 5 times a week (we got a Planet Fitness in town around September, and I joined almost immediately - even a cheapskate like me can't pass up a $10/month gym membership); drink plenty of water; and weigh myself and report back here every Friday to keep myself honest. I'll have a better idea of the journey ahead of me when I step on the scale this Friday (the day before my 35th birthday), but anything under 160 will be an absolute miracle.

My long term goal for 2012 is to get within striking distance of my 130 pound goal weight by September 8, when we head out for a week in Disney World and a couple days at Anna Maria Island. But since things seem to work better with short term goals, I want to get back into the 140's by Easter. Not counting this week, that is 8 weeks to lose 10-15 pounds. Definitely doable, if I stick to my guns and use what I've learned over the past 7 years.

That's all for now. Talk to you all soon!

I'm reading back a little bit, and I see we have another guy. Welcome! I'm Aaron. Nice to "meet" you!

Welcome aboard to Gina, too!

Hey, Aaron! Long time no "see". Good to see you're back. And I don't know why I called you Eric earlier (telling 8th dwarf that our resident guy, Eric, hadn't been around in awhile....I meant you!). I'm losing it!!!

Hi Dawn! Ha ha, yeah, I noticed that. But I wasn't going to mention anything. Honestly, it is a lot more preferable than having my name spelled wrong, which happens way more often that you'd think. I mean seriously, how can people not know that "Erin" is the female spelling? It's gotten to the point where, when people ask for my name over the phone or at a restaurant, I'll just automatically say "Aaron: A-A-R-O-N". And you wouldn't believe the number of times they have to cross out or erase something once I start spelling it for them. Ugh. (End of my rant...)

Welcome back, Aaron. We just have to keep fighting the good fight, right? Sometimes I think of giving up because I can't be 100%, but I know where I'd be if I just gave up. So here we are losing the same weight again. It's better than gaining old weight, and new on top of it.

Thank you for the welcome Aaron, and the rest of you peeps too.
Nows theres 2 guys here we can talk football and stuff about monster cars , right?

Been a bad week this week, haven't been able to work out cause I've come down a real bad dose of man-flu, ladies thats like a cold you get only obviously about 10 time worse

Starting to feel human again and hope to get at least 1 possibly 2 workouts in by the end of the week. Not to worry this is a marathon not a sprint.

Feel free to talk about football all you want as long as your football talk is praising my Giants! I have to remember that marathon not a sprint thing! It's a good mantra...oh and welcome!
