    Well, with everything going on this summer in combination with being a tad bit lazy, i needed a new start.

    A couple coworkers and i decided to do a weightloss incentive thing together..We measured and weighed ourselves on 8/25...We will do so again on 9/25 and at the end of every month. The deal is if we stay the same, or lose the weight/inches, its good, but if we gain, 10 dollars goes into the pot..At the end, the person that loses the most, gets the money..

    This is what im starting at..

    157 lbs (not happy with this at all!)
    Waist-29.5 inches
    Arms-11 inches
    Legs-23.2 inches
    Hips-42.9 inches
    chest-35.4 inches

    My Mini goal is to get down to 150 by Nov 12 (when i leave for teh cruise)
    Ideally, id love to be down to 140 again..
    I am drinking at least 64oz of water a day as well as exercising...now i just need to stay motivated :blush:

    My NEW and IMPROVED Goal: (The National Body Challenge didn't like my original goal) BMI of 19.0; healthier eating habits; increased muscle tone, strength and endurance; better-fitting (or loose!) clothes.

    My Plan: Modified version of low-carb, similar to South Beach based on the gestational diabetes diet. And exercise, exercise, exercise! DD is my perpetual "kick in the rear" -- I can loan her out to anyone else who needs a 5yo running buddy...

    My Progress: Getting closer: BMI = 19.9 (down from 21.3).

    MY GOAL: To lose 30 pounds

    MY PLAN:
    Exercise: Walking 10 minutes every day
    Diet: drink only 1 pepsi a day (down from 4+)
    drink 80 oz. water daily
    eat breakfast every day
    take my vitamins & meds daily
    watch my serving size (not taking seconds)

    PROGRESS:
    1/1/06: 30 pounds to go
    1/6/06: I'm only drinking one pepsi and taking my vitamins & meds daily. Eating breakfast about 1/2 the time. Watching my serving size. Have not started exercising yet or drinking my water.
    1/17/06: 25 pounds to go. Need to drink more water and eat breakfast everyday.
    2/8/06: 23 pounds to go. Down two pant sizes. Yeah!!!! Still need to drink more water and get more exercise. Getting better about breakfast.
    5/6/06: 17 pounds to go. Still down two pant sizes. However, I have gained back two pounds in the last week or two. I've been eating too much - not stopping when I'm full - stress eating.
