Thank you so much to Pamela for taking over a day early for me! You all deserve to have a coach with her head in the game, and I am a little distracted!

I love reading everyone's positives for the day and I hope you will keep doing that for the month of January.

I am excited, nervous, terrified, etc. If you can think of an emotion I have probably been through it this week. I keep thinking--26 miles is a really, really, long way.

I hope everyone has a great week. I will be back sometime mid week next week. My pm box is pretty empty so there should be no problems with sending in weight updates this week.

Have a super week! Good luck to everyone who is running this weekend!

Rose you have been a great inspiration to me! 26 miles is a long way and I'm sure you can do it! I think I read somewhere that the last 6 miles are the easiest lol Have fun if you can, you are in Disney after all.

Good luck to anyone running this weekend.

One of my students told me he is going to DW this weekend because his mom is running in thehalf. He told me about a year and a half ago she had a heart transplant. I told him he better cheer pretty hard for her.

I am proud of the fact I am back on track again ... with food and exercise. I am struggling with seeing movement on the scale .... I was down 3 pounds and the next day I am up 3 pounds. UGH!

Positive: I had a VHS made into a DVD and watched it of my older boys. It was wonderful to watch. It is so funny to see their same personalities shine when they are 2/3 ..... and now 17/19!

Hey Pam ..... I REALLY enjoyed it. It has been years since I took a class ... and it all comes back. I struggled to switch from song to song since they were all new to me. But the basic moves were all there. I actually found that since I have been running, the cardio. wasn't that hard. Now the strength part was a bit challenging. I am actually thinking of going to the 2 classes a week that work on body shaping and then running the other days.

Good Luck to all our Runners this weekend!


Rose is leaving tomorrow .... and Lisa is running too. I think there is one more person running. I can't wait to hear how it goes. You are my inspiration for one day running the Disney Marathon myself.

Thank you!
Hi! I bought the Groupon. I checked the site for you and they are no longer offering it. I bought it at the beginning of December and I had until February to start using it. (It is good until July.) It was a really good deal ... 30 classes for 89.00. I am sorry they are not longer offering it.

Hi everyone!

Bananas here, getting ready to go to WDW for marathon weekend! Aaaahhhh! My first ever half, and the butterflies are in full force, but I don't think I can be any more ready than I am. I can't wait!

QOTD: I'm most proud of today's WW weigh-in - my January lifetime weigh-in was within range! December was rough, and I was out of the WW maintenance range and had to pay. That was motivating. This week, I struggled with last-minute meal plan changes that threw me off a bit. Mostly one big Thai food indulgence...and McDonald's tonight. I think it's evening out, but I'd rather stick to my plan!

Positive: I had a somewhat unexpected job interview today for a position at my current employer that went *extremely* well. But I looked at the big picture and decided it would take too much away from my work-life balance, especially time with the girls, and I opted out when it was clear what the job required and that I was going to be a top candidate. Regardless, though, this was very affirming and a huge boost to my job confidence! My jobs have shifted with this employer over the past 11 years, but in a way that hasn't required interviews...this was my first job interview in almost 12 years!

Okay, back to the piles of laundry, packing, double- and triple-checking my stuff as we get ready to leave crazy early Thursday morning. My DMIL arrives tomorrow to stay with the girls...time to run! Let's rock this thing, runners!

XOXO
Liz

Happy Wednesday! Rose has asked me to step up a day early as coach, so here I am!

QOTD for Wednesday, January 9, 2013:

Do you track your food? Why/why not? If you do, what is your method? Paper and pen, MFP, digital? If you don't, do you think you should? If you do, do you foresee doing it long term or just for a little while?

BB in a bit! ..............P

Good morning losers!

Had a few min before work so figured I'd pop in and try to get more involved. I do track my food, and have for the past week. Last year, I'd start tracking again, and didn't stick with it for more than a day or two. I know it is a key element for me to lose the weight, and I plan to do it long term. I'm going to ww meetings and my meeting is tonight. I'm excited for it. I am using the paper trackers I get at the meetings, though I do the monthly pass and have access to etooles, but am not on the computer much during the day, so it's easier for me to write it.

I had a good week, and my worst day, I ate 3 of the raspberry chocolate ww bars, but wrote each one down as I did it, and that was that. I had the points. I know if I'm not writing things down, I eat way more. And it's not like anyone but me sees what I"m writing, but I guess I don't want to see proof that I've eaten a big bag of chips, or 3 bowls of ice cream.

It feels good to feel in control again, and I am feeling pumped to lose this weight once and for all. I"ll be 49 next month, so I'm going to end my fat forties, and enter the fit fifties next year.

Thank you for coaching last week, Rose. Have a magical trip!!

Thank you Pamela for coaching this week.

Have a great day everyone!!

I've been pretty diligent since November with counting everything that goes in my mouth. I use MFP because it is so easy to use and plus I just love that I can barcode scan stuff in. I definitely can see me keeping it up. I usually know in advance what I"m going to eat throughout the day and I key it all in at one time. That also keeps me honest and I tend to stay away from mindless snacking since I have not entered it in MFP!

If anyone wants to add me as a friend there, I'm geauxgirl42

I use MFP, it's so easy to use! I just wish it was more generous with the calories I tend to go over most days. I'm still trying to figure out how to eat only 1200 calories a day and NOT be starving!

Good luck to all the runners this weekend !!!!
