I am quite pleased with myself this week. The hard work and new eating habits paid off and I'm -2.2 lbs for the week. This is my 3rd largest weekly wt loss this yr. I atribute a lot of this week's success to this article in the Jan 09 Readers digest. This is about two thirds of the original article that was printed. I've switched to simple lacto-vegan eating habits until 6pm. I thought it would be hard since I also have to eat in the car at lunch but I've found ways to make it work for me.

I've got to run but I'll be back this evening to reply to everyone!

Hey guys,
Just here for a quick update. Somehow Passover didn't ruin my week entirely because I'm down 2.0 pounds!!
Jillian Michaels is definitely working for me!
I have to say, it's incredibly refreshing to weigh in only once a week. I used to do it so sporadically, that it never felt good when I did lose weight because next time I could be up 10 pounds. It's so nice to keep track of all of this. I keep wanting to sneak a peak on Wednesday, but it just feels nicer to wait. Even if I gain, it's nicer to wait.

Have a great weigh-in day, guys!

Oh, and to check in for yesterday, I did half an hour of cardio and then half an hour of strength training! WOO HOO! And 9 glasses of water.

Fran~ I see you're Disney bound in late May or early June. If you're going to be there the week of May 18th there are a couple more peeps that are trying to get together.
We will arrive May 28th. I hope that some of the peeps will still be there but it will be my luck that everyone will be gone. Keep me informed. Thanks!

I hope she's not upset with us

Well the last time I officially weighed in with Sparkpeople was 3/27 and I weighed myself just now and I'm +1.6 which is fine because I haven't been much of a peep lately. I am starting officially on Monday again because Easter is Sunday and I have eaten way to many Mini cadberry eggs already. But I do drink my water instead of diet soda so that's a plus.

First off - weigh in. I'm down .8 lb this week. Puts me at 191.8. Can't wait for that 1.8 to come off so I'll be in the 180's!

I am hoping the same thing! I know she has a lot going on.

I have been on weight watchers since December (or was it November) and doing ok. It is coming off slow and steady. I also bought myself a body bugg about 2 weeks ago (the arm band thingy that they wear on the biggest loser) and it is so addicting! It monitors how many calories I burn in a day and I log my food to see if I am at a deficit in calories which means losing weight. I weigh on Tuesday for my first time since wearing it full time so we'll see. According to my calculations I should have lost 2 pounds this week.

On another note, DH and I are going to Moon Palace Resort in Cancun at the beginning of June and I am so excited. It is our first real vacation without kids since our honeymoon 8 yrs ago. And we are going to renew our vows on the beach (like we would have wanted the first time) so that will be so fantastic. AND, I now weigh the same as I did the day we got married so by June I will be less.....and will (hopefully) look and feel fabulous!

Hope all the peeps are doing well!! I also applied to the facebook group (I am Jennifer N, in case you dont recognize me in the profile pic)
Hey! Of course we remember you. I was just thinking about you the other day. Glad to hear things are going well for you. I LOVE the pics in your siggie!!

I hope we hear something soon. I have her email address. Maybe I'll send her a note that way.

I'm down 1.4 this week. In our back office I put up a copy of the AAA magazine cover from a couple of months ago that has a suitcase with a bikini, sunglasses and flip-flops and says, "Think Summer!" It is helping me to focus. I came down with a cold this morning but still managed to get on the bike. No gym, though, because I had to wait for the plumber.

I heard back from Misty. Wendy has not disappeared off the face of the earth. She has "stuff" going on. Misty will tell her we are concerned. She said go ahead and try searching and requesting her again.

Thanks for reporting that Danielle. I thought it might be something like that, and I know she must be super busy. I just hope things are OK.


My uncle is in the hospital, and my mom and I are going to visit him today. He has lung cancer that has spread to other places, now including his brain. He also has pneumonia. And he starts a series of 13 radiation treatments on Monday. (He's done one round of chemo and one round of radiation prior to the recent discovery of shadows on his brain CT.) I'm just going to try to go enjoy spending a bit of time with him today.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and a Happy Easter!
