    Goldfinch- hang in there. Your trajectory mirrors mine- I started at 150 and reached a goal of 112. I had some down time from cycling and was a little less careful through the winter and crept back up to 115-116- but I'm back on track now.

    Just do your best to track and watch your portions while you are away from your routine. If you can't get your preferred foods, just try to substitute as best you can and try to walk or find other exercise.

    You can do it- we all can!

    I'm still doing five miles every night on the treadmill. Well, most nights. I think in the past months I've had maybe five days off all together. This week I've walked 20 miles. I'm getting some awesome muscle tone, but I still feel like I've got Alley Oop calves and I look about six months' pregnant.

    Still, I just bought three pairs of shorts in a size smaller than I actually wear. Motivation.

    Thinking of going back to green smoothies for one meal per day.

    Anybody got some good kale recipes?

    138.4 this week - wrong direction. I went on a business trip 2 weeks ago (goo restaurants) and also hurt my shoulder (could be rotator cuff) in a bike accident - I fell while turning on wet pavement. My shoulder hurts, so that has translated into less exercise. I will try to adjust to this in the next month or two!

    Making this week's additions.

    I made an appointment for this week to go get an analysis in one of those body pod things, and to get my resting metabolic rate measured. Not sure how much that will impact things, but I am a data junkie and I love to get numbers to better understand things. I'm hoping once I hear how bad things are, it will help to inspire me. Plus, my friend and I bought a one month boot camp thing through groupon. It is a company that has a nearby MWF camp and I had already been looking at them. So this gets me started and saved me some money. I am having tremendous trouble getting myself back on track (due to so many life issues, but I think I'm also going to line up a physical just in case it is more) and I'm hoping these two things help me.

    Oh yeah - and I'll start a thread this week for the next two month challenge. Once that is up, let me know in there if you are joining us for the next challenge. I've got to make this the one that I really start making some lifelong changes!

    Sounds great Possegal! Let us know what you think of the camp once you get started with it.

    Thanks again for all of your work!

    Kale loves to be cooked with lots of garlic.

    And thanks, Goldfinch, for the tip on the garlic.

    Put me down for 226 at the finish. Not what I wanted, but life - again. At least I've not been stress eating - this is progress (normally, I would have gained weight with life as it has been lately).

    Thanks, Possegal - Looking forward to the next challenge!

    I stayed at 214.5 this week. I had a few indulgences this week. I expect that my crazy schedule next week is going to make sticking to a plan difficult...but, we'll see.

    I am in California visiting my sister - who is not doing well. No scale in the hotel room (she is too sick to have guests overnight). Count me in for next month and I am trying hard not to stress eat, but my exercise has also fallen by the wayside due to my schedule and torn rotator cuff

    I can only hope next month is better.
