    New GW: 265

    I didn't do well on this weeks challenge :sad: I can't even begin to tell you how upset I am with myself this past month or so. When i started this site I was doing SO well and all into it. Now I am not logging and I'm not losing weight :ohwell: I keep telling myself that this is going to be the week I get back on track but I never follow through. I feel like crap :frown:
    Cateyes, I am in the same boat as you are! I'm not depressed, but I just don't have the motivation that I had when I started either! Some days I just don't care about anything except where my next meal comes from! We'll get there!

    Happy Monday ~ Happy Short Work week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey you guys struggling..chin up!!! I know this week might make you think why bother....(I am speaking from how I USED to think) How about if you focus on getting in 30-60 mins of exercise everyday this week to make up for some of your food choices....get through the holiday and have a plan for next week. Go to the store over the weekend and fill you shelves with good for you food.

    I know how easy it is to say I have no exercise I can do - or I'm too busy - or it's cold out etc. I was good at excuses and now I am really seeing that my habits are changing and getting sooooooo much better.

    Short story alert........:laugh: For example....Friday I was up by 5:30 started work at 6:30....presented at a meeting full of food...only had 2 bites of scalloped potatoes..then a lunchon..salmon grilled veggies, fruit. 2 1/2 hour drive to the ugly city loaded with traffic for a sales call then 1 1/2 hour drive home. I had to unload the car and unpack. I didn't exercise the day before due to another long day so I knew they was no room for discussion or excuses....I changed clothes and ran out the door to the gym. I felt fantastic getting home showering, knowing I did the right thing!!! You can do it too!!! Take a walk, pop in a DVD or Netflix, do what Jenn has for the challenge, turn on some music and dance. It will make you stronger and burn calories!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!

    I noticed yesterday that my gym is offering a couple of classes on Thursday morning. I am still not sure if I will hit the gym or go for a run walk...depends on the weather.

    Well I have to pack and hit the road again - Have a Great day Friends

    :heart: Judy

    Jenn - lovin your new profile pic :bigsmile:

    Sooo the last few weeks have been a bit of a struggle. I'm not giving up but I do realize that I probably won't achieve my goal weight by Christmas. Jenn, can you please change my goal weight to 125?

    Jenn,

    I was thinking about changing my Christmas goal, but I think I will get close enough to not be disappointed. I will just keep on going and going and going... no more excuses! Never give up!

    At least I see I wasn't alone with weighin in late. :laugh:

    161.6 lbs.

    We've been super busy, moving apartments, giving a public presentation this Thursday, not to mention trying to make thanksgiving plans, despite most of the foods being unheard of here. Maybe that will at least make it easier not to over-indulge. lol.

    Keep up the great work guys! :flowerforyou:

    I am so disappointed in myself that I havent lost anything really since the group began! Well I have and I have gained it back and then lost it and so on!! I suppose it is better that gaining a heck of a lot of weight! :(
