    My weight is the same as last week. I had my finals all last week. SO glad to be done with my junior year of college though! Now I have more time to focus on myself and my weight loss. :happy:

    And summer is fast approaching so it's a great time! :)

    I have decided that I may be able to get away with a bikini this year - but just one with shorts on the bottom. :laugh: I have this pouch on my lower abs (instead of one round belly). So If that gets hidden in shorts, I would probably be okay showing off my slightly tubby stomach. :tongue: But, I still think I'll stick to the tankinis. ;P

    oh when I say bikini I so mean tankini! hahah It will be another year or so before I dare show my tummy. my biggest problem is my thighs - need lots of toning! but hey I'll still push myself like I wanna fit into a regular two piece

    Oh, great Nola! We'll sport tankinis together. :tongue: I actually like my thighs now - or am really starting to. I have come to learn that I am quite muscular, so that as I lose weight - I am probably going to have thicker thighs regardless of my weight. However, they are more muscular than they were 31 lbs ago! :smile:

    Maybe next year we can sport bikinis together! :laugh:

    oh I definately will always have thick thighs no matter what, but definately want to get them nice and tone.
    I already have one from last summer that I didnt get to wear more than once or twice cuz even tho it was an XL I was bursting out of it. I tried it on the other day and I'm definately getting there. by the time I reach my goal (I'm 16lbs away) I shud be ready to rock it!

    Yeah Nola & Amanda! Rock those Tankinis this year! :tongue:

    Porterbaby - you're right, it is a slow progress - but it's progress! In a year or so, we'll all be there and we will be so proud of all the hard work we're doing now. :smile:

    That's how I am. My weight loss is SOO slow. But it's changes I can maintain the rest of my life. I workout enough (even though I've been slacking bad lately... there's so much going on) but eating cleaner is still a work in progress for me. It's taken me a little over 2 years to lose 55 pounds, but I feel like they're not coming back this time around. It sucks to see that if I lose like I have been (about 25 pounds a year) it's gonna take me almost 4 years to get to where I want to be. But, I gotta say that still beats the hell out of where I was! As long as the scale steadily moves down - I'm happy. :smile:

    And.. even though I am not happy with my weight yet, I feel really healthy. I want to get rid of the extra fat, but I'm finally in a place where I don't feel like I'm stressing my body out anymore with the extra weight. That's nice to be able to say!

    Down to 154 this week--- the first the scale has moved in so long. I took a half week off from the gym (had a final on Tuesday) and that's when I lost the weight. The only thing I did differently was double my water so I am going to make a habit of that now.

    I am really pleased with this week's loss. I haven't lost this much in a week since I first started! I am not getting TOO excited though because I suspect it will all come back once I hit the gym hard again.

    Great job Amanda!

    The scale hasn't moved for me. But it's TOM (I feel your pain porterbaby, lol!) so we shall see what happens next week. I've been so busy with finals, birthdays, a wedding, mother's day, my laptop getting a virus and a few other things that I haven't been able to think straight! Hopefully things are settled back down now and I can really focus, especially since school is out for 3 months! But now I'm trying to find a job for the summer..

    Anyway, god luck everyone on the weigh ins! :smile:

    Phew, I haven't weighed in on a Saturday in quite some time. I am trying to just use the scale once a week - wednesday mornings. So, I will post when I get that done.

    Great job Amanda! The drinking water can really help - I need to increase my intake of water also.

I hope everyone is having a good Monday!

    starting:226
    last:167.8
    this:165.0
    bb: 185.6
    goal:140 or 135lbs.

    since we haven't heard from sjmay for awhile how about someone makes a challenge for everyone to do or what kind of a challenge you ladies want to do this week, for a weight loss for this saturday.
    my challenge is not to eat anything heavy after 7:00 pm
