Thanks for the encouragement!!! I set a goal to be 145 by September 15th, so I need to get back on track fast. This date may have to change because of the recent plateau and vacation.

I have done them in the bathroom before. I do need to get motivated because I still have 42 lbs to go. I DON'T want to give in. I have let being overweight control me for to long. It would just be nice If I could start losing again.

I don't think I would ever hear the last of it if I was caught doing jumping jacks in my office. I work with all men. Although, it's my office and If I want to do jumping jacks then who cares what they think. Everyday they try to get me to eat a piece of cake from the cafeteria, they are terrible. They liked it better when I was bringing desserts in all the time.

I am pretty sure I will have a gain. It took so long to lose these last few lbs that I think It will be to devastating to see all that hard work gone. I am going to drink a lot of water and go easy on the sodium and maybe weigh on Friday.

I had my thyroid checked last year because I was struggling to lose weight and it was fine. I had a hystorectomy  a few years ago and noticed I started to gain weight I also have IBS and other complications from having my gallbladder removed.Finding foods that don't cause issues can be tricky.

As far as the excercise goes I have been excercising at least 4 times a week,but only for 30 min. I have really bad asthma, so I don't want to over due it. I think the excercising has actually improved my asthma because typically during this time of the year I would be on steriods and be doing breathing treatments every four hours.

Since moving to the great state of Illinois,everyone wants to take us to all of these"great" resturants. I probably should clarify this statement. My husband is on staff at a church and a few of the Pastor's want to take us out all the time.

I also struggle with self confidence. Can I really lose 62lbs??? I have never stuck to a diet plan longer than 8 weeks because once I get close enough to my goal I give up. This time I truly want to succeed and make it to my goal.

I wasn't on the site yesterday except for in the morning,so I missed this post. I 'm gald to hear that you are doing better today. Just having moved, I too crave the friendships I used to have. Just from the short time I have been using this site, I can tell that you are sincere and giving and passianate about your beliefs. Anyone that has a friend like you should count themselves lucky and blessed.

I have to leave my house between 6:00 am and 6:15,so it's difficult for me to get up any earlier. A few times I have been able to do this 12 min. toning video,but not every morning. I need to go to bed eariler, but then I don't see my husband at all tuesday thru friday. I just need to find the right balance.

It's hard between schedules to try to fit something else in. I work full-time and my husband works full-time plus teaches piano lessons 3 times a week. We also recently got a new puppy. He has definetly made life a little more interesting. I am finding it difficult to get my excercise routine in each day.At this rate it might be September of 2007 instead of 2006 before I get down to my goal. I did get in 30 min today, but it has been three days since I have excercised. This could be why I feel so down.

I usually am pretty upbeat and have a positive outlook, but my recent move to a new city is kicking my butt!!! My husband has a new job and is never home and I havn't made a lot of friends here. This sounds like a pretty good pity party I have started for myself. I hate that everytime I get lonely or sad the first thing I want to turn to is food. When I conquer that, then I know I have accomplished great things. I know that tomorrow is a new day with a new outlook.....

I agree ace has got to go,but first I would really love to see bucky leave. I don't get it. Why is he still in this competition??? I really thought this year would be the best, but it is turning out to be pretty boring. My vote is for Taylor,Katherine and Elliot as my top three.

Self Confidence is a big one for me. I used the excuse that I didn't have enough will power to get down to my goal weight, but that's all it is ,just an excuse. I have gone through a lot of hard times due to medical issues and got really depressed and gained  50 lb. After I hit my highest weight something inside of me changed and I felt the power necessary to achieve my goal. I would really like to look in the mirror and be satisfied with the person I see.
