Still not tracking as I would like to. I did measure and weigh and I have lost inches and maintained weight. Not bad in my book!!
congrats on the inches lost and the maintaining!! keep it up!

I'm back!! I somehow locked myself out of my account and kept coming back and not able to get it. I worked out twice last week on the eliptical. That is a great workout! My eating has been all over the place and I've been drinking way to much. It is the end of our quarter today so I am still at work. Blech...but so glad to be employed with the best company ever. They feed me and they look after my health. I feel so blessed!

Hi Friends!!

My job has been a dream job...I can't begin to explain. I have been busy networking and eating the food. I put on around 5 lbs. so it's time to get serious again. I haven't been back to the gym in a week. So, goal next week is to make sure to check in to my blog daily. This helps with accountability and track calories. These two areas really help me. My DD is having her sweet 16 today. I must say I've enjoyed the break but really miss the weight loss. Especially after reading how everyone is doing...'specially my dear Deb. I don't have the drive for VLCD but will gradually get my cals down again and start there. I am motivated and ready to take it to the next level.

Awe Jen! So sweet! Glad you are loving your job, you just can't ask for more than that!..

No worries on 5 pounds, you can wrangle that back down in no time! I know what you mean about not being ready for VLCD, but you don't need to go that low.. whatever you were doing before was working!! Just get back to working out and you will do fine.. !

Happy Birthday your DD !!

Hope your daughter had a lovely sweet 16!

I, too, am glad that you are fortunate to have a job you LOVE. That is an awesome thing...

I agree that a 5 lb. gain isn't bad at all. You can totally knock those pounds back off once you get in your groove again.

Hope your week has started off great.

I cannot say that things have been going terribly lately. I am still managing to keep my weight in the 5 lb window. I have also been working toward a mini goal of mine. Will keep quiet until it happens. Work has been amazing with a trip to Chicago in February! 2014 is the year of dreams to come true. Cheers!

It's hard to believe I've been at my new job for three months now. I have achieved my goal a little over 100% this quarter in sales and working toward a technical certification by my birthday in Feb. I am giving myself enough time to study and prepare. The tests are difficult. So far I've taken 3 tests and passed 2. There are a total of 6 tests to complete. Slowly and steadily I will pass! Happy Christmas all! I am going to do better to check in!

Shari/Deb,
I know so happy and hard to believe it's been 3 months. I'm excited and anxious to see what 2014 will bring. My alcohol consumption has definitely gone up with the festivities. Therefore, I'm going on a 30 day cleanse for a ramp up and transition to a more raw food diet. This means no alcohol for 30 days. I'm so happy and thrilled to do this for my body. I notice when I treat me right...me treats me right back

Love you ladies and cheers to a new year!

Hello everyone! So, I haven't started my cleanse just yet. I wasn't able to prepare the way I needed to. Eating more raw veggies is hard since I'm so darn picky. Oh, well. I will definitely start at it tomorrow. Zero drinking and feeling good. Woohoo...2 lbs gone. I ended up gaining more than my 5 lb window. So I will keep up the work. Hope you all are doing well. As for a great moment in time; I did pass my technical exam. I am now a VTSP at my new job. Super excited and looking for the next certification...
