    I am in too!! I have got to get back into shape, last summer I was going between doing a toning program and walking in the mornings - a little jogging. Exercise is harder for me though because I have a bad knee.

    Anyway, I am GOING to lose some weight this summer!!!!!

    Just weighed. Not a pretty number. But, I am focused and determined. :)

    I guess we'd better count me in, too. I really need someone to literally kick me in the butt--anyone up for a trip to Canada?

    I made a resolution to do it too. :rolleyes: Again.

    I'm reading Alicia Silverstone's "The Kind Diet". Will try some recipes out of there this week. Made a huge salad yesterday and cut up some fresh veggies to munch on. No junk food in the house. It's soooo hot here, walking's no fun at all. No money to join the gym-I'll have to dig out my Zumba DVD's-those are fun.

    I've packed my gym bag and am praying that I find it in myself to go to the gym after work. My gym is beside a grocery store so I'm planning on stocking up on good stuff to eat. I'm having prepackaged noodles for lunch today....very unhealthy:eek:.

    :lol: peachy! I'm in, too... though I have another 2 weeks of school before I start. I think running and Pilates are in the cards.

    I'm in, too! I had been doing a pretty nice job. Working out on the exercise equipment, running, using the exercise ball, eating right. But the past week I've really slacked. Junk food, no exercise. I felt so good when I was "living right". Now I just feel like a large blob. I need to get back on track!

    Definitely motivated after weighing myself. I guess I will be hitting the gym today.

    I'm in. My official start date is June 5th because the whole school goes out to eat after the children leave for the year on Fri. The restaurant is fabulous and the food even better. It will make a nice "last meal"! I'm going to buy a rowing machine for my daughter and I to use at home.

    I'm definitely in. Even though I'm a certified personal trainer, I have some baggage in places that I never used to. I would love to have my body back when I first met my boyfriend.

    Ok, I'm in for pics with the heads chopped off Peachy! I have seen a change since I started working out 2 months ago, but I have a long way to go too IMO. I'll post one tonight.

    I'm flying to Thunder Bay on Saturday--and even have a long layover in Toronto. Would that help? :)

    Maybe if I chopped off my head, I'd lose about 30 lbs ??

    Sorry, I have a morbid sense of humor sometimes....

    I'm in. After this baby, I want to tone up. No, I NEED to tone up! And lose a few pounds too. I only netted 4 pounds gained during my pregnancy, due to the diet I was on, so I'm keeping going with it. I weighed myself in the hospital the day after my babe was born, and as of this morning (11 days later) I have lost 19 pounds. Granted, most of that is water, but it has me motivated!

    My weakness is soda. I just love it so much. I hadn't drank a soda since February, but for some dumb reason I had one, and now I'm off the wagon. But I try to limit it to weekends only...or at least every other day...:lol:

    So my short term goal: 14 pounds. It will take me to a nice even number. :D
