Fantastic!

The change in your daily habits is more important than the number.

Keep chugging along, I think I can, I think I can, Whoo...Whoo!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Aunt Bea! I really think I have the life style change thing down now. I just need to not let things slide, and just eat the way I know my body needs. I also need to make sure to continue to exercise when I go back to work in August, and throughout the winter. That is when I have not done so well. Gotta love summer!

I have just been trying to catch up on this thread. Congrats to everyone who is losing - you are doing great.

I am doing not so great. Some health and personal issues the last several months that kept me from DC,also took their toll on my diet and fitness. I am now back up over to what I have been averaging for a few years (215) and hovering between that and 220 which is an all time high for me.

But things are starting to work out a bit and soon I will be able to finally renew my Y membership. For the summer we stick pretty close to salads either with protein in them, or grill meat to go with fresh veggies and/or salad.

Here's to a brand new start.

Good for you for eating right, and getting back on track. It is never easy for some of us, and we understand.

I am still continuing the bike, elliptical & weights at the gym twice a week & the pool 2-3 times a week. The scale is not moving to fast. Getting through the 4th of July holiday & weekends have their challenges, I seem to do fine during the week, need to work on healthier eating habits on the weekends.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I am still overdoing the carbs and do not have energy for exercise. I am really concerned that I am giving up the fight. I am just too sore and tired and while my brain knows that if I exercise and eat right I will be less sore and tired, it doesn't seem to be helping. The heat doesn't help either.
