If all of you report your results in the same format, and I'd suggest Ronstar's format, some ex-scientist/engineer (not necessarily me) might someday be inclined to suck the data into a spreadsheet, and combine and analyze the results in interesting ways.

Gary & I are doing our weigh ins on Thursday .
I am still down 5 pounds . I have 6 pounds to go to my goal unless I change my goal . Gary has lost 24 pounds ( I hate men ). The problem is we are leaving on a cruise Sat. morning so hopefully we'll do okay .

You'll probably reach your goal on the cruise if not before, you'll do so much walking from one end of the ship to the other!

Good results for me this morning at Weight Watchers. The honeymoon period continues:

Goal beginning 4/22: -25 lbs.
4/29, Week 1, -4.6 lbs.: -4.6 lbs. total
5/6, Week 2, -2.6 lbs: -7.2 lbs. total

Thanks Al - that graph is depressing. At 0.8 lbs lost per 100 days, it will take me 1000 days to get to my goal weight

Freebird, sounds like a great time! You can't enjoy a beach vacation without the beer and crab legs--that is part of the fun. Can't wait to hear the full report on your "therapy" .

Well, I don't deserve to be down this week. I ate OK, but didn't exercise enough. Will definitely hit the gym today - we are almost 1/2 way through the month and I haven't re-started to lose. My S.O. is out of town this weekend, so I will have more time to myself that I intend to dedicate to some really good workouts!

1/1/10: 133 (start of diet)
3/15/10: 124 (just before vacation)
4/20/10: 124

4/28/10: 124
5/5/10: 124.5
5/12/10 124

First goal: get below 120 by May 30th
Second goal: get to 115-117 range - AND STAY THERE

ok, I've had it with this stagnation - no more daily fast food from now on - maybe that will help

You guys are ALL smart to stay on top of your statistics, whether up or down--it was ignoring them that got me into trouble time and again with magical thinking (e.g., a scoop of Ben and Jerry's is about the size of a small orange, and oranges aren't fattening, so ergo--Ben and Jerry's it is!). So you know where you're at.

I'll post tomorrow--I've been faithful to WeightWatchers this week but I never know what the scale will say.

Well it is not Wednesday but it is post back to back vacation weigh in and considering that one of the vacations was an eight day cruise I was pretty scared . I only gained one pound so I'm thrilled . I think the two long walks through tropical rain forests helped plus we walked constantly on the cruise .I ate more than normal on the cruise but I did not overeat so I think that saved me .

Congratulations. I bet you were delighted when you saw the weight. DW and I were saying yesterday that we are dreading the scales when we get back from our month long vacation next week. We are getting in lots of walks and hikes but we both don't feel that's enough to overcome the extra calories - the cafe 5 doors from us is just so darn good!!!

We have proved the old adage that the best way to train for walking up steep hills is to walk up steep hills

Alan, I bet you and the missus will be fine--although the cafe will miss you!

Moe, that is wonderful! Just one lb.? Way to go!
