  • Hi all! I am about to confess my secret dream that I have told no one, because I'm not sure if I can accomplish it or not (fear not, nothing that jaw dropping).... I really want to do a triathlon next summer (eek! I said it!!). My biggest obstacle training wise is the running part. If I'm remembering right, sprint distance…

  • Kristen - WoW! You are amazing! Another fabulous chart. Thank you for all you put into this group :0) So, after reading all the posts, I decided I needed to get my booty moving!

  • Hi All! Back home. I love visiting my in-laws, but it will be nice to have my own bed tonight! :) I am happy I will have my scale tomorrow, so I can figure out how I managed while away. I did make the mistake of weighing in when we got home (late evening versus my usual first thing in the AM weigh in). I didn't like what I…
  • Hi All! Have been surviving what I think of (dietary wise) as the lion's den - we are at my in-laws for 4 days & my MIL is a great cook - and there is nothing light, low fat, etc. here. We've been spending most of our time at his Aunt's place on the water & no access to any computer/MFP there. I think I've been doing ok. I…
  • Mandi - great to "meet" you. Congrats on your baby! Excellent work with your weight loss results thus far. Keep up the great work :) Hugs, Amy
  • So So AWESOME!!! Way to go!!! I have restarted my C25K after a bad tendonitis bout this winter made me quit it - I was afraid to go back, but I have finished Week 1 & my cranky ankle seems to be hanging in. Great work!!
  • Great work everyone! See you on Ready to Rock it! Hugs, Amy

  • I have LOVED reading everyone's NSV's. Such a great challenge filled w/positivity! My NSV's: -sticking w/this challenge start to finish -trying new things (or stuff I haven't done in awhile) like biking, trampoline park, lap swimming again, getting out for walks w/my sister -being able to consider that I maybe could do a…

  • Hi all, I wasn't able to read the chart the other day (had those red "x" boxes).... but I can see it today, and think I may have earned my title this week in error :( I think it's showing a 25.2 weight loss to date, and I think my actual weight loss to date this challenge is 11.8#'s. I'll PM Kristin. On another note - I'm…
  • Hi All - sorry this is late! I was online yesterday reading thru everyone's posts - but ran out of time & didn't get all the way up to date.

  • Hi everyone! Thankfully I am done with the insane schedule of 40+ hours/week with 3 kids at home + hubby's 2 jobs. (God bless all the single Moms of the world & those that manage to work full time on a regular basis with little ones!!) My house was getting messy, little time for planning or exercise (let alone sleep).…

  • Roni - thanks for getting the chart together! Carole - Wonderful challenges! I think this next weigh in is a "mini-goal" weigh in. I'd really like to hit mine so I have to bust it out this week! Hugs to all, Amy

  • Had a nice reply all typed up, then my laptop froze (it's an old hand-me-down from work, so it's losing steam). So, now typing on the itty bitty family iPod. So excited to have made the chart this week!! Wahh hoo! Kristen, thanks for all the time you put into updating that- I love seeing the new results each week. So much…

  • Emilie - congrats on being so close to your "go home" goal. I have my 20th High School Reunion coming up this summer, so tonight I am going to count how many weeks until then & plan out some goals! Does anyone else have a special event coming up in the next few months they are striving toward being more fit & toned for?…
