    Will get on the scale at work tonight

     But had a nice bout with the stomach flu, so I am feeling pretty good about weigh in

     Also have a nasty flu bug running through work, if I can get that, I am laughing  :))

    went from 220 (too much for being short) to 195...and then back to 205.
    I keep planning to go joggin in the am, but its been raining for 2 weeks down here.
    Guess now that the weather has passed I have no excuses.

  • Missed the weigh-in yesterday but I'm down 12.4 pounds since weigh in.  Pretty happy so far, packing my lunch and eating breakfast have been the biggest help I think.  I'm motivated and have signed up to run a 5k on 3/16 so now I have something to train for.

    Pork butts stall at about 160.  Apparently I stall around 202.   I lost 7 lbs in the first week, and 2 in the next four days.   Since then, nothing.  Here's to a better week!  Good luck, and good work everybody!

  • I had to hit the road early yesterday am so i didn't weigh in. I worked out 5 days last week and skipped a happy hour at work to run last night. 3 people asked what I was doing to lose weight so that felt good. Nonidea what I weight today but I look and feel better. I'll weight in tomorrow and post it.

  • Yea I think the best feeling of weight loss is the feeling of your clothes being looser. I am thinking of doing a 5k myself. I have done one before and I really enjoyed it (surprisingly).

  • I lost 5 pounds after week one and stalled. This past week was a rough one. The kids weren't sleeping well and I found myself not getting up in the mornings to work out. Back on the workout train this week. I also signed up to run a 10K in April. This is even more motivation to get in shape. Now it is out of necessity.

  • Down to 265.2 this morning, I've dropped 16.8 pounds.  I was fortunate enough to have a bad sinus infection over the weekend so I didn't feel like Eggin' anything so I dropped weight.  My training for a 5k of 3/16 starts this evening.

  • Down to 201 this week.  Only 1 lb but made a lot of progress stepping up my runs on the treadmill.  I'm fighting the fat loss with muscle gain, but that's OK with me.  Down 8.5 total I think.

  • Will weigh in later today with Maximus being born I haven't even thought about weightloss

    We were away for the weekend and thought I did more damage, than I actually did :@)

    Duck poutine, wood oven pizza, and some killer craft beer (a few thousand calories worth)

    Weighed in at 202 last night, which I will take for this week.

    Time to get back on track
