    Please be sure that LuvBaloo has your starting weight. It is a big job being the weightkeeper and we need to help her as much as we can! :worship:

    Glad to hear that you are feeling better! :goodvibes

    QOTD -- Do you have mini-goals to help you meet you big goals for this challenge?

    I have two main mini-goals. The first is that I must work out a minimum of 30 minutes a day. I would like to get up to 45 minutes or an hour but 30 minutes is a good start. I will continue to add shred days to help reach that goal. My second goal, is to lose at least 2 pounds a week. I will do that by concentrating on eating fruits and vegetables and water, water, water!

    Have a great day, losers!​

    Mini goals:
    OK. I need to start doing my back exercises again. Since I haven't been doing them at all- I think 3 times a week is doable.
    Getting out to the farms for fresh veggies/fruit. I'm not a huge fan of veggies but I like them better when they are farm fresh. My goal is to get out there once every 2 weeks this summer. I kind of don't like driving out there because there's nothing else to get out that way any more but if I plan garage sales right- it should be ok. Was also thinking it would be a great bike ride occasionally although my husband thinks I'm nuts.

    Good Morning!

    My mini goals are to get in 30 mins of walking/running each day at least - yesterday we walked 3.1 miles. My son and I are walking a 5k on Memorial Day and I wanted to make sure I could walk that far!! Man am I sore this morning though.

    I also have a mini goal of losing 10lbs by June 10th, I really hope to be under 160lbs by then. We are going to the beach!! Can't wait to walk/run in the sand at sunrise with my hubby!!

    I thought about my favorite Disney song and it has to be Life is a Highway by Rascall Flats from Cars - I also like the Wishes music too. I worked in Fantasyland for a few months right after Wishes started and it was my most favorite thing to see every night I worked. We have since moved and haven't been to Disney in about 3 years. We go in October and I can't wait!!

    Hang in there - look at it as a learning experience. Definately learn what you "Can't" keep around the house.


    If I wasn't married I'd probably be the "cat" lady, lol! DH will only let me have 2 and that is questionable somedays. He hates my cats :scared1: I tell him if they go, so do I - LOL! He keeps saying the cats go with the kids when they go to college. I just keep telling him - yeah kitties and dorms don't mix.
    Actually DD17 will be devasted and so will my one cat when she goes off to college. He sleeps on her bed at night.

    I've broken my goals down into 10 lbs per month. Even if I don't quite make it- it gives me something to push for. I'll be close this month, even though I still have a ways to go - just trudging along - one day at a time. I've noticed the smaller goal feels easier to achieve and not so overwhelming.


    Keep up the good work everyone. Push through the urges this week. We can ALL have awesome loses this weekend. WE CAN DO THIS! :yay::yay:
    I just got done doing a 2 mile walk at lunch.

    My goals are to work out for 30 minutes each day (I do Wii Fit, all aerobic activities for 30 min). I'd also like to incorporate some evening walking, but that's easier said than done, our evenings are way too full already!

    My other goal is to have lost a total of 30 pounds when we go to WDW in June (I've been on this diet awhile and have lost 16 of those 30 already, so 14 pounds by June 20, we'll see!)

    I don't have a specific goal for this challenge, but I am just aiming for 5 lbs at a time.

    Plans for the summer...work. I will be going to Leavenworth for a weekend in early september and then to DL in mid september...oh, and I have a Mahjongg weekend in Anacortes over my birthday in July. That's about it.

    Favorite Disney song...I love the oboe part in Pirates Yo Ho attraction soundtrack where it goes from being the instramental yo ho to the bayou sound. You hear it again right near the end. I also like the Mickey Mouse Club song as we had it as our departure song at our reception. Everyone stood in a circle with their arms around each other and sang with it.

    Mini Goals...to go to my WW meetings each week and hold myself accountable to my decisions. (I would love to be down 24.8 by my birthday in July, but I am not holding out much hope and won't do anything "drastic" to get there.)

    Have a great day!

    My mini-goal is to hit all of my scheduled workouts. It's run 4 mi, walk 4mi, run 4mi, rest for the rest of May and the month of June (with excused days during our vacation). We'll see how that goes before I come up with July's goals.

    Thanks!! Lady and the tramp is my very favorite Disney movie ever!

    We just got back from another 3.1 mile walk/jog and it seemed to be even tougher than yesterday, but we shaved 3 minutes off our time !!!

    Hope everyone has a great OP evening :)


    I was thinking about something and BL lately. Do you think that they will bring Michael's brother/Ron's son to the next season? I know that is someone I think could really use their help. I've been thinking a lot since the finally and they did the contest for those two girls to have one come on the show - that maybe they will bring Michael's brother to the show. I feel so sorry for him when you see him look at his brother and dad. You can see the pain in his eyes. His mom lost weight and now his brother and his dad. I'd really like to see that.

    MelanieC,

    I really hope they bring Max on the show. He just broke my heart. Especially the first time he saw his dad and Mike after they had been on campus. He just cried and hugged them, and next thing I know , I'm crying right along with him!

    I wonder if they will. Bob told him that he was going to help him, what better way. That broke my heart too. He must feel so left out, and that would be a great thing for him.

    My mini-goals are to keep exercising 30min 3 day/week, and 60 min 2 days/week at least. Stopping my exercise last summer was my down fall, and I won't let that happen again. I also want to journal all my food when I am home. When I go away for a weekend, I won't journal, but will make healthy choices and drink my water.

    Great question Lisa. Makes me think about how the little things like you said- water, fruits and vegies will help us reach our big goals of weight loss. They really can make the difference.

    My mini-goal is a 'perfect' day on program (WW). I still don't have all the supplies I need in the house. The 'perfect' day is: in points range, all my water, 5 servings fruits/veggies, a whole grain serving, DAIRY :sad2:, and my 'healthy fat' serving. I always seem to be missing something or other.




    I don't think 28 points of fried chicken and french fries is what they have in mind...:lmao::lmao:(OK, I haven't been THAT bad)

    I guess my mini-goal is to be down 5-10 pounds by vacation, hopefuuly closer to down 10. I also want to get some type of workout in every day.

    I would like to see him on the show or at least have some sort of updates of how he is doing it at home. Mike looked very very cute at the finale.:lovestruc
    His brother should have the same chance.

    As many people are posting here and not on the team threads, I hope LuvBaloo and lisah0711 don't mind if I butt in real quick to announce the results of the last challenge:

    Hear ye, Hear ye! The weightkeeper speaks (finally, I know!)

    Here are the final results. Please remember that I am human and mistakes are made. Hopefully I have not made any, but if you feel you should be on the list and were not, please PM me.

    Due to a lack of reporting in the last week, the final results will not be broken up by team. Here are the final percentages, based on starting weight and the last week's weigh in. The color of the font will indicate which team they were on. (So, purple font is purple team, green font is green team).

    PLEASE REMEMBER, THESE ARE FROM THE START OF THE 7.1 CHALLENGE WHICH IS SEPARATE FROM BL 7. SEVERAL PEOPLE SENT ME THEIR STARTING WEIGHTS FROM BL 7, THAT WEIGHT WAS NOT THE STARTING WEIGHT I USED AS THAT WAS A SEPARATE CHALLENGE.


    The 3% club:
    FaithTrustnPixieDust 3.015075%
    pjilla 3.85106%
    corinnak 3.958091


    4 and 5% Club:
    DisneyFam5 4.485488%
    maherae 5.168776%
    BilltM 5.30303


    7 and 8% Club:
    LuvBaloo 7.569721
    SpaceMtnFan 8.653846


    AND... DRUMROLL PLEASE... THE BIGGEST LOSER FOR BL 7.1 IS...
    BibbidBobbidyBoo 10.54852


    Please congratulate all the losers! If your name is not on this list, that's okay! Give yourself a pat on the back for making it to the end! I encourage you to head over to the Between the BL challenges thread. Remember, LuvBaloo is your weightkeeper for that challenge.

    I am hoping the same thing, it was heartbreaking seeing the look on his face.

    WTG to all the losers in the 7.1 challenge.

    Busy day here, not much time on the computer. DD is finishing up yearbook stuff then I've got to tackle the computer problems. Didn't want to take a chance and have the internet go down when she needed it. Today is my mom's birthday...we are taking her out to dinner but hopefully DH and I will split so I'll stay on track.

    Have a great day everyone!!

    :cheer2: BBB :cheer2: Congrats on your new title!!!

    and cyber high-fives to those you made the 3-8% club!! i'm envious....i must channel this energy into a positive direction :rolleyes:

    just read and caught up.....i have terrible memory so i probably won't be able to keep everyone straight, but i'm trying :goodvibes

    My name is Molli, i'll be 37 this summer and SAHM to DD 16 and 12. I do have a 'part-time' job where I fill in for folks off for the day at a medical office. I am an x-ray tech. been working as much as i can get until school is out saving for our Aug WDW trip. I have yo-yo'ed the same 20 lbs since I lost it back in 2003. i did keep off for almost a year then the bouncing began. My goal for this challenge is to lose 10 lbs...ASAP as I did the same as and earlier poster....bought new shorts last summer when i was at goal and they are too small now. I started Jillian's Making the Cut workout program last week, along with a co-worker so a mini-goal is to survive it! however, i feel off the eating wagon last weekend, which is totally my hurdle. i must be able to stay in control to not gain over the weekend. I just WI and i'm up 3 lbs since last Friday morning. urg! this coming weekend is a 4 day (DH off Fri) so I really must not fall as that is 1/2 a week! I am counting calories

    My over all goal (and jackie i can't remember the end date either!) is to shed that last stubborn 10 lbs and keep it off all summer. We have 11 days at WDW planned, including our first club level stay, and I need to feel good about myself lounging at the pool sipping a free beer :woohoo: ( well really, pre-payed.....lol)
