    I'm auditioning for a role in a musical with a local theater company... the audition is in August and the show goes up towards the end of the year. I have a decent chance of getting the part... but it involves a LOT of dancing and I'm 100 pounds overweight, so it will be hard to pull off if I don't start eating healthier and ridding myself of some extra poundage in the meantime.

    The biggest struggle is that I have a very stressful job, and my desk is literally 5 feet away from a common table that is constantly stocked with unhealthy foods -- bagels in the morning, cakes for peoples' birthdays in the afternoon, candy, etc etc. I take out my stress my nibbling on this cr** all day long, and I've had zero luck so far in overcoming the challenge. :(

    Bring your own stuff in to munch on! Raw veggies have a lot of volume for the calories. And they're crunchy and take awhile to chew so they'll keep you busy for awhile. I've had to do that at quite a few past jobs.

    Any chance the common snacks can be moved to another area?

    Trying to consistently track anything I ate before I put it in my mouth at work is what helped kill my snacking habit. Maybe it would help you?

    Got below 230 becfore a trip I took the last weekend in May and have been bouncing between about 232-236 since then (I weigh in pretty much daily and can fluctuate wildly from one day to the next) and have another vacation starting this coming Sunday, so my motivation for this week is to eat below goal everyday and head to vacation at 232 or below.

    Gained some weight from quitting smoking, and then had emergency surgery that set me back a month. So, my mini goal is to get back into my clothes I just bought a few months ago. They are a little snug now.

    159 , i weigh 160-164, like the 150 sound

    I'm in the same place. Stayed in the 150s for 18 months, then popped back up over 160 in the last 3-4 months. Was 161 this morning. Sooo close. Trying to stay focused. Hoping by Friday I'll see the 150s. (I was 158.8 after my morning workout, but only counting first thing in the morning weight). Hope we both get there soon!

    Unfortunately no... the table where they are is the only open/common space in the office. for now i've been trying to work in other spots (like open conference rooms) when i can, so that i'm away from it for at least a little while. :)

    My mini goal is to feel comfortable in my new bathing suit that bought for my July vacation.

    I want to lose 16lb in the next 8 weeks before I go away. Also plan to RUN a 5k at the end of September so hoping the weight loss and fitness will go hand in hand.
