    Started back with my food diary today and did a couple of kms. on the treadmill (at a faster pace than I ever have before). This thread, and all of your successes, is keeping me going.

    No one has written on here for a few days! How is everyone doing? I'm holding weigh-in results until Saturday, but man am I sore from the elliptical machine!

    I've fallen off the wagon, but will climb back on Monday! Finally things are starting to settle down!

    According to the scale, I didn't lose anything this week...didn't gain either, so not too bad. BUT...yesterday at the gym I checked my BFI (body fat index) and it has dropped 7% since January 18th. The trainer was, to put it mildly, amazed. She checked it twice because she said the norm was 1 or 2% and that 3 or 4% was great results. To put it in terms easier to understand, at least for me...although the scale only shows a 13 lb total loss since I started, I've actually lost 23 lbs. of fat! The other 10 lbs. is lean muscle gain, which keeps my metabolism up and makes me look and feel better. Not only that, I have Type 2 Diabetes and my blood work from last week showed my A1c level below 7 for the 1st time since I was diagnosed 9 years ago. I have a long way to go, but I'm so excited about the results already...I can see a brand new wardrobe coming this summer if I keep going the way I am!:)

    I stayed the same. So, I am still going to try to not gain, in fact I would eventually like to lose the last 2 pounds...BUT, I did lose 10 in 2 months without really depriving myself! I wish it were muscle-ha ha :)! Good luck to you all-I hope you meet your goals.

    I have been staying the same too. All this snow has me down in the dumps! I'm just glad I havn't gained anything. Back to tracking calories and exercising today!

    These snow storms keep knocking me right off the wagon... all I can do is load up on carbs!!!

    But I'm still a good 8 or so pound ahead of where I was for New Years, so I'm thrilled. I'm climbing right back on the wagon.

    Even if it is "two steps forward, one step back"-- big picture, I'm moving forward.

    That's sounds wonderful!!

    Today's weigh in showed a loss of .4 lbs which is better than I thought it would be. I didn't eat crazy amounts of junk but I didn't really watch my portions or exercise. I blame the weather. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :lol:

    I gained .5 last week. I'm really pretty bummed about it, but its my own fault. First time I've gained since the first of the year.

    I've fallen off of the band wagon. I've quit logging my foods, and only work out twice a week, when it is with my aunt. I need to get back on track with my food journal, and I bought that dang elliptical, so I need to use it!

    I booked my Cancun vacation this past week. We leave July 11. Time to get serious!

    131 - down about 1 pound. My weight is fluctuating, but the trend is downward. I started a 135, so I'm heading in the right direction.

    Congrats to all who lost weight!!!!

    I weighed this morning for the first time in six weeks and have lost 7.5 pounds. I've STARVED, I've worked my BUNS off, I have sweat BLOOD and for just 7..5 in six weeks. Geezzz... ten years ago all I had to do was cut back a little and ten pounds would fall off!!! Seriously, I was dripping wet with sweat this morning after thrity minutes on the eliptical, my face was red for 30 minutes afterward!

    I'm happy to say that I am back on track. Logging everything I put into my mouth, and worked out. I am a little nervous about this weeks weigh-in, I was sick AGAIN and girl scout cookies were in the house
