    Im starting this too! I try to pledge to lose 10 or so pounds! BY watching HOW much I eat:) LOL.. I tend to eat through-out the day. I just weighed myself.. at 130lbs. So I want to get down to 125?

    I did it!!!!

    Well, sort of anyway. According to my scale, I've lost my first ten pounds since going back on my eating plan!

    Well... I had lost 26 lbs an thought for sure I'd be posting a "30 lbs down!" post, but noooo. I gained 6 back. :( I am more active and still.. kinda... ok not really watching what I eat all the time.

    I'm back to eating better and am going to continue to be active. Hoping to lose 10 more which will bring me down to 126#, and then I'm going for the next 10... I think I'll be fine if I weigh 116#- I'm very short so I need to be low teens.

    Go Girls Go!!

    I'm distraught. I gained everything back plus a few after I started, GRRRRRR!!
    Work is insane, I feel cruddy, and totally stressed out. The weight gain REALLY doesn't help either. For my birthday Mom gave me some cash to go buy some new jeans, I tried on several pair and walked out with a cheap pair because I REFUSE to buy jeans that I AM going to be too small for ASAP!
    Sadly I have NO clothes to wear right now.

    We took a family portrait the other day and I looked terrible. It's gone to my face and I looked puffy, didn't help that they put me RIGHT UP FRONT either! So I looked huge while everyone in the back who is heavier than me looked smaller.

    Honestly though I just don't feel good about myself, that's the problem!
    Can't start working out until week after next because I'm slammed with projects, but after that it's ONNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!
    Again. LOL!

    It's the stress that's causing the weight gain. I know that's been a lot of my problem, too. Flygap - somehow you have to find some time for yourself - even if it's only 5 or 10 minutes at a time. Go for a walk at lunch (I can't leave my "area," but I cheat and take the stairs up to the break room to grab a cup of coffee - I could get one in the little break room on our floor, but I make myself go upstairs. Some days, I drink a lot of coffee!)

    Thanks Dee,
    I think you are right. I've been really good about eating and I can't figure out WHY I keep on gaining. Guess it is stress. I wish I was like DH, when he gets stressed (which is all the time) he loses tons of weight, which he can't afford!

    I work at home so just a bit ago I went out and picked the horses hooves and sprayed them down. I feel tremendously better now!

    Hang in there girl, keep up the coffee "habit", that's a GREAT idea! My work area is upstairs in the loft so I get a cup of water or go make some tea, go start some laundry, wash the dishes, let the dogs out, about 50 times a day, so that's 50 flights of stairs right?!! Maybe I need to leave the remote and phone down there too? :)

    Just thought I'd post and say, I've lost 80 pounds since the end of February! That's the equivalent of my younger sister or two roping saddles. I've gone from a size 20 to a size 8, 253 lbs to 170 lbs, and I have NEVER felt better!

    Here's some pictures for comparison.

    Barrelwannabe, Look at what you were hiding under the fat? A beautiful young lady. The butterfly has emerged from her cocoon. Congratulations.

    BW, I am so proud of you! (And envious, too!) I am so big, that if I lost 80 pounds, no one would be able to tell but me!
