    I weighed in today. Bummer :) I've gained back 7 lbs.

    I've made good food choices today. I went grocery shopping after work - for the first time in probably 4 weeks - and didn't get done with dinner until really late, so I'm not working out today. I'll definitely do it tomorrow. If I don't, you have permission to yell at me!!

    How's the start to your week? We've still got a month before our September goal date, still time to make progress!

    Oh no about the water heater!! The joys of being a home owner, right? :) I just realized our 1-year anniversary for closing on our house is coming this Friday. I can't believe it's been a year!

    I've been choosing to be off track. I think I'm ignoring the emotional clutter that's holding me back, and I'm eating to feel better. I've been WAY more emotional this week that I normal am (I've cried twice. I can't remember the last time I got so emotional that I cried) - and it's not even my time of the month. I'm working on facing what's bothering me, and making choices that my body will appreciate.

    I began the 15-day challenge today, and my goals are to get rid of the emotional clutter, and also get my treadmill out of the garage and into the house so I can use it again. I'm going to be able to look back at the end of the challenge and feel proud that I made choices to move towards my goals, instead of get farther away from them.

    That's great news!!!!! I wondered before if you weren't eating enough, but I know you have some special circumstances, so it can be hard to tell. Or maybe you just need to switch it up, have your light weeks and then have more "normal" weeks where you eat more.

    I'm off program as well. I have joined a challenge group that starts Sunday. I found it through Spark, and it used to be ran on Spark (the leader used to be a SparkLive coach and I'd attend her classes each week), but now she's got to do them off Spark. You should join. It's awesome. You make it what you want, and there's a supportive community and all. It's on Facebook now, here's the link if you want to join:

    I'm really starting to think that we are going to start trying for a baby next spring, so I need to make some progress. I'm hoping the challenge will help get back back in the right mindset, because I'm consistently making really bad choices.

    I'm with you. Sunday resolved to stay on task this week and I blew it every day so far. Yesterday we took my mother-in-law to Olive Garden for lunch. How do you diet Italian. Maybe today I can do better. We both need to find our resolve. I'm over 150 again. I hate it, but can't seem to make good choices. I know I can do better if I just set my mind to it. Right now everything feels so difficult.

    I wish there were easy answers to everything! I know that choosing to eat Taco Bell for dinner feels good now, but it certainly won't feel good down the road when I've got diabetes and can't keep up with my children. I need to choose now for that future. I know that a lot of times when I make the worst choices, it's because I'm with others that are also making the bad choices (eating unhealthy, having more than 1 cocktail, skipping exercise to go out and eat, etc). My husband has excellent metabolism and can eat as much as he wants without gaining weight. If I try to make healthy choices, my resolve goes out the window as soon as I see what everybody else is doing. Lucky for me, a good friend is also thinking about getting pregnant, and she also wants to lose weight before. If we're both trying to make healthy choices while being out together, maybe we'll be better at it. Hmmm.

    That said, I haven't made many healthy choices this week - haha!! Still working on it.
