  • Hi everyone. I was reading all your posts, and just wanted to say that you should all be so proud of what you are doing.

    When I started my challenge last June I was at 162lb, but in January of 2012 I was 195lb. The first time I tried a challenge was in 2007, and I was around 225lb. I only lasted two days. I could kick myself for not sticking with it, but I have realized that agonizing over past mistakes is beyond pointless. I really loved the post about when you trip going up stairs.....soooo true. I experienced what I will call a lapse in willpower over the holidays, so I am on day 1 of week six of my current challenge.

    You are doing an amazing thing, be proud!

  • Hey ladies-

    I just wanted to check in with my over 200 lbs. ladies.  I am starting the final third of my challenge and weighed in this morning (I'm only doing it every 4 weeks).  I have lost 22 lbs. and 22.5 inches since starting on 1/1!  Yay!  How is everybody doing?

    The other day I was doing abs and realized that I can now do a full sit up!  What?!  I could only do crunches 8 weeks ago!

    Keep it up girls,


  • Laura that is AWESOME!!!  Keep it up girl!

  • Hey ladies, I started a challenge this week at 216 pounds.  In the past 7 months, I rapidly put on 40 punds and, after taking my before pictures, it seems like all 40 pounds went to my butt.  Time for that to go!    

  • Way to go Lila and Lttlrd!  

  • Sharon--Wonder--Woman, you look fantastic.  When I grow up I want to be like you.  I am 56 and starting the challenge today.  Any tips.  I am at 198 lbs and 41% body fat.
