    I know I would feel much better too. I'm not too overweight or anything, just want to loose about 5 or ten. There's so many temptations around here though!! My roomies are always ordering pizza or going out for ice cream! If I could only resist! I hope everyone else is hangin' in there though and staying strong! Good Luck to you all!!

    I am trying to lose weight too. I think a "buddy system" is a great idea. I just recently gained a lot of weight over the past couple of years. I had been, well what my friends said was "too skinny" (110 lbs) about , wow, I guess it was about 3 years ago. Once I started eating more...well I gained too much weight. I currently am 5'7 and weigh 160. I gained it my last year in high school and first year and a half in college. So, my long term goal is 125-130...but right now I'd be happy at 140. I get up at 5:30 every morning for school to drive there 45 min. away to exercise before class. I apply for nursing school in the spring! (any good recomendations for Florida BSN schools?) Anyway, Good luck to everyone...

    no, i don't wanna step on that scale! Today saw the side of me in a mirror when going pee...........egad it was frightening. Sometimes it seems so tempting just to stop eating all together, so I wouldn't have to make decisions concerning food.
    But no, I know that healthy is my goal not skinny or even plump at this point so I need to keep plugging away. I think my new sin is too many latte's. You know too much milk and sugar, and cookies. I tried to stop, but all my friends were getting one! Yes I gave in to PEER PRESSURE. Someone really ought to do a documentary on me........"I got sucked in by all my friends, they were doing it, it seemed so innocent" "Later they found her unzipped with crumbs on her boobs, it was frightening!".
    Okay enough with the dramatics, I need help!

    Can i join the program???

    I work in a nursing home and weigh myself once a week. I now weigh 170 and am hoping to get to 150. I have not really cut down much of my eating as i dont eat much anyways, just trying to change what i eat. I have cut back my Mt. Dew intake to one a day(I used to drink a good 5-6 a DAY!!!)

    I also measure myself every two weeks and the inches seem to come off faster than the pounds. It really helps keep me on track because I am one of those immediate gratification type of people. If i don't see quick results, i quit. So hopefully you all can help keep me on track so i don't give it up and eat an entire chocolate cake in one sitting.

    I have come to the conclusion that if I can find a way to mount this computer to my treadmill I would probably walk 10-15 miles a day. LOL.

    Anyways, i can hear the motor of my treadmill calling my name. (sigh).
