ok.. I'm back on the wagon!! lol. I fell off a few months ago and have been going UP UP UP instead of down down down. NOT a good thing.

The last three days though I've been riding my bike and doing my stretches and cutting back on the calories. Down one pound!

I bought a pair of cool jeans ( two sizes toooo small) yesterday. And I have them hanging in front of my bike. Kind of like the carrot in front of the horse. I will make my self fit into them before the summer is over. I will! I will! I will!

Trish!

Tanis, never go on a diet for anyone else. Do it for your health and your self esteem.
Maybe he said it, because he was afraid that if you lost any more weight you'd be out of his league!

Keep us updated on your progress, please!


And best of luck all! We are in swimsuit season (ack!)

Well, today I tipped the scales at 193 lbs. Bear in mind, two years ago I weighed a whopping 280 lbs! I still probably got about 20-ish left to lose. I'm not really sure what my ideal weight is. I weighed 165 in college, and while I was pretty athletic and fit, I did have a few extra pounds from attending several kegger per week! My guess is that I'd be pretty happy with 175 now, but we'll see when I get there.

The combination of Atkins and Matt Furey's Combat Conditioning has worked wonders for me.
