    That's awesome. The only real organized running I have ever done is Warrior Dash and that was last year. I feel bad for my ankle because it still hurts here and there from when I sprained it like two months ago. I guess I am stuck with that the rest of my life.

    So, I said I was down 3.1 on Saturday, right? Well, I got on the scale Sunday (my usual weigh in day) and I was down ANOTHER 1.7 pounds! It even stayed off today after going to a BBQ yesterday!

    So, last week I dropped 4.8 pounds. That's crazy!

    checking in - been keeping busy with wedding stuff, but we have a 5K in mind at the end of June, so trying to be good with running, if not hitting the gym :P

    That Sworkit program looks fun - might have to check into that soon.

    General goals for the near future:
    Lose the few lbs I gained while being lazy
    Be awesome on the 5K in June
    Feel awesome in my swimsuit for our July vacation on the beach


    Loving following the group too :D

    Also had to put vaseline on my face due to judo mat burns. I have never felt so greasy in my life.

    Thanks Beth!

    Chorazin that's awesome! Has it stayed down or was some of that from fluctuating?

    ishtra those are some good goals. Do you have a quantitative measure of "be awesome" for the 5k?

    And PayneTrayne: I'm not sure what to say about that. It does not sound pleasant.

    Ok, it took a couple weeks for my body to start losing, I started at 245.6 lbs, actually gained a couple in the first week, and now am steadily declining. This morning's weigh in has me at 242.2 lbs, bodyfat down from 32.4% to 31.8%. Slow, but steady, progress. I like it.

    As of today I've gained back only .3 poounds. Seems like it'll be staying off, or at least I hope. I usually put on any weight I'm gonna gain back after Wednesday.

    Now taking bets on how much I am going to gain when I weigh in in just a bit. I am going to say 1.8 lbs gained. Oiy.

    edit: Well, this all makes sense. I lost 1.6 lbs.

    In terms of quantitative - I'm aiming for under 30 for now, though we might walk this 5K with a buddy who is newer to running/walking, so will be basing my time on a run After the official race :D.

    I've run into the same exact thing - weeks where I think I've gained it turns out I've lost, and weeks that I've thought I did real well (like this one) it turns out I've maintained or gained. Just goes to show you that you can only trust pics and scales XD

    242.4. Down about two pounds this week. A bit disappointed BUT it's still a loss.

    I've also decided that once I get down to my goal weight (and maintain it for a while) that I will be getting the tattoo that I've always wanted. So I've got about a year to work out details me-thinks.

    So on Saturday or Sunday I'll be wearing my Penny Arcade shirt to the gym. It's the 'Paint the Line' gray shirt. Seeing as PAX is my inspiration, I like to wear stuff like this so I can 'see' it while I'm running. Prepare to see an absolutely drenched shirt and PayneTrayne post workout,.

    I wear my PAX shirts too. I know it's bad for them, and I look like a weirdo among all the gymrats, but it's for the same exact reason.

    And on a clothing note: just found that a pair of jackets I haven't worn since high school suddenly fit again (yes, I've kept a bunch of smaller clothing through the years in hope of them one day being worn). It's a small thing, but it makes me very happy.

    Nothing wrong with keeping things here and there. Just don't be a hoarder. ;) I prefer to just dump all my old stuff and start fresh.

    I am going to say exactly what I said last week. I think I am going to gain and will be baffled if I lost this week. I did play a ton of hockey again this week, so we will see. If I lose again, then I am back on track.

    edit:

    I guess it is safe to say I hit the wall quite some time ago. I was stuck at 227-229 and now I am stuck at 224-226.

    Lost another 2.2lbs this week, dropping me down to 253! I'm glad my body has chosen to drop a lot of weight this past month, but I am not looking forward to the eventual plateau.

    Stoked - back into the swing of things.
    My current aim is to clock about 20 miles a week. Last week was my first heavier week in run/walking so I hit only 16, but I'm happy with the start. And down a little over 2 lbs already.

    So far - ran/jogged 4.13 miles after walking 4.65 yesterday with @Brakdor. So I'm thinking I should be good :)
    In other news - we added more players to our 4mile run/walk - so I'm excited to be going out with a team. Will make the hills Just a little more manageable.

    Loving the progress guys!

    The plateau will get ya right in the pooper. I am not enjoying it. :(

    So, starting fights in ice hockey should burn a few more calories, right? Haha.

    I think I am going to start going down the street to my sister's and playing Dance Central 2. I played it over the weekend at a friend's house and after an our of taking turns with 5 of us, I was drenched (I play on hard). That should be good for weight loss I would think. Hopefully it kick starts my weight loss again since it appears hockey 2-4 times a week isn't cutting it anymore.

    So my fitbit took a swim in the washer this weekend. Yea those things are not waterproof. As an FYI if you do the same thing, contact the support email and they will offer to send you a new one in exchange for your feedback on the fitbit. Just thought I would share. ;)

    So uh, down to 237 this week. Which means I've lost about ......93 pounds since last August. When I hit that 100 mark I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

    Whew.. what a whirlwind few weeks ... first, it's great to see the momentum continue for everyone during what could easily be called the downtime between PAX Easts.. seriously.. keep it up!

    I thought I was doomed when I stepped on the scale for the first time since my little man was born - 2.5 weeks with no gym, being at home, eating sugar cookies like they were rice cakes.. 6, 7 pounds at least, right?

    Happy to report I only put on 3.. back to 215, which is exactly where I wanted to be at this time. Couldn't be happier. Sure, it'd have been nice to stay at 212, but I'm a realist. And a lazy, hungry realist at that :)

    Back to it -- a run/walk this morning that kicked my butt, and watching those calories! Time to reclaim my spot on the fitbit leaderboards too :)

    I agree, there's a lot of momentum keeping up! I recently reviewed when I've done since April 30 as part of the Nerd Fitness challenge I mentioned earlier. It is...a lot.

    And I'm glad things didn't get too bad for you. Major kudos for being exactly where you wanted to be!
