Melkor "Hey, crow away - we're all due a little brag time now and then. ( Which reminds me, I should change out the runner recruitment drive with something new, so if anyone want to have a brag thread up top, make one ;) )"

So here we go.

Since starting weight lifting vs doing cardio all the time - all though I've gained weight due to poor eating and stress and stuff I've managed to drop back from a size 14 to a 12 and the 12s are getting baggier every day.

So what is your personal achievement that you want to share!!  Brag it up folks!!

Squatting (with free weights) 100 Pounds!!

Finishing c25K in 9 weeks and doing 3 K in 30 mins. Never ran before starting the program and started it to prove to myself that I could do it and to prove to myself that no mater what others say I'm capable of more than I give myself credit for.


congratulations sallystang!

New workout pants - $24

New sports bras - $10

Wearing skin tight workout capris because my leg fat is burning off - Priceless

My first chin up. Now I can do 5. And working on 8 pull ups by the end of the summer.

Sooo got to brag ;)

Lost 4.6 pounds in 5 days :D soooo pleased xxx

Well done to everyone, keep going xxx
Since I've started looking after myself better, I can fit into a size 6! (UK) :D

I have more energy, less cravings for unhealthy snacks (apart from chocolate >___>) and more confidence. :)


I ran (and walked a little) 6.5km in 40 min!! It was my first time running that distance as well, I usually just stick to a safe 5km instead.

I would have been able to go a little faster but my poor dog was tiring out by the end of it so I had to slow down and walk the last 1km. I should leave him behind next time but he cries when I go for a run/walk with out him!


Edit: Urg!! I ran 6.5k not 8k Undecided turns out the GPS on my phone app was incorrect. Oh well, still a good effort

My shorts are all too big! I see some shopping in my future!:)
I am down 16lbs in 3 months while adding lots of muscle, my husband has lost 20lbs and quit smoking, I started with a personal trainer yesterday who is whipping my butt <3 it just feels great to actually love working out and eating clean.

Eating well, exercising almost every day, and taking vitamins has made me kick my only vice: smoking. I have been almost 2 weeks smoke free and have not had one craving, not even when at a bar having a few drinks.

I took a link out of my watch and also dropped half a shoe size.. I guess that's what 30 pound weight loss does!! Pretty crazy! Congrats to everyone!

Wait, you dropped a "shoe" size? Is that possible? I lost 180 pounds and wear the same size shoes. lol

Yes! It's crazy.. I guess less fat squeezed in my shoes!
I finished a 10km race in under an hour today. So excited! No way I could have done that 30 lbs ago.
Wow, that is an awesome time, runoff! I'd love to get below 1 hour.

My NSVs are everyone I know has been telling me I've looked the best ever, and pretty much all my clothes from high school fit! (Some are even too big!!)

I ran 10 mins at 6mph. My personal best. Could only manage 3 mins a month back.

I ran in my first 5K this year. Was able to run non stop (personal goal). Finished it in 36:30 minutes. Came in 69th out of 111 runners. I'm 50, my dad ran it in 24 when he was 70 - so I've got some improving to do!

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
