    So, I stopped posting updates on my weight loss goal in the Biggest Loser 2010 thread months ago. I think most people did the same. It's been almost a year! How is everyone doing? So far, I've lost a total of 93.5 pounds and have about 15 more until my goal. I'd love to hear how other people are doing!

    That's great Iowa!!!! Congrats on that lost weight!

    I'll admit that I fell off the wagon a bit, but I'm getting back on! I'm committing to going to the gym at least 5 times a week, cooking a healthy meal every night, and generally just to eat better. I would really like to complete a half marathon....and to really work up to a full marathon. Hey, I figure if the guys on the Biggest Loser can do it, so can I!

    Way to go Iowa! Unfortunately I lasted about 1 month last year and have only started back on the "healthy" wagon on Sunday. What have you been doing?

    It's not going well for me

    Earlier last week……

    I got yelled at by the Wii Fit :blush:

    With the holidays I figure it wouldn't be a good time to keep trying to loose weight. Especially since I'll start and then stop and then a week or two later try again and then stop…. I'll start new after the holidays. Plus now I have a motivator. I don't want to be yelled at by the wii! :D

    Way to go, Iowa!!! That is very impressive!!!

    I've been up and down, on and off, but I have dropped almost 30 pounds this year -- mostly by July. Since then, I have stabilized. I hope to lose about 10 more, but in all honesty, I am fairly happy right about where I am. 10 more would be nice, but I am not going to kill myself for it. I did notice an upward creep lately, so I am being a little more diligent in paying attention to food, and pushing a little more about going to the gym.

    Congratulations, Iowa_Teacher! That's amazing!

    Right now I'm just trying to maintain until after New Years, but earlier in the year I lost a little over 20 pounds (which included getting about ten pounds less then I've been since I've been this height!).

    Wow, congrats!! That's great. I'm hoping to join in Biggest Loser 2011 when the time comes. I can't wait to get back into exercising again. I've only gained about 18 pounds this pregnancy so I'm not too concerned about losing that after baby comes, but I'd like to lose an additional 10-15, as well, that I put on before I got pregnant, as well as tone up some more.

    Does anybody have the new Biggest Loser Challenge game for the Wii Fit? I have the older one and like it but was wondering if the new one was much improved or not.

    I've been eating better and working out 4-5 times a week. Honestly, I had no excuse for being the weight I was except for laziness. Now I am active :) However, the last 5-10 pounds have been fighting me tooth and nail, but I guess that's to be expected as I reach a healthy weight, huh? :lol:

    It seems that way! I'm down to 95.5 now. I'm hoping to do 4.5 more by January 1st. How awesome would it be to lose 100 in a year? :D

    Iowa, you are an inspiration! Everyone is doing great [​IMG] I have stayed the same weight for a few months now (down one pound then up one pound LOL). I know for me that if I don't exercise I won't lose anything. I am going to try to sign up at the gym the next time they have a good deal and it will have to be after the winter is over because I know I won't get out of the house and go if the weather is bad. I'm going to dust off my workout DVDs and at least do that for now!

    Yes, i'm waiting for the $10/month with no startup fee. They run that promotion a few times a year. I just know I won't drive to the gym if it's snowing or icy out which will be from now until mid March lol

    lol, yeah, I don't have that problem down here! I do love going to the gym though. Just wish they had childcare on Sundays so I could Zumba today.
