Idiots maybe (lol Danielle!), but still flattering, yes? It's good for the boys to see other boys admiring their eye-candy... Good for the ego and good for you!!!

Well, 217.2 this morning! Yeaaaaa buddy!

Got in a 30 minute workout this morning -- 10 mins on arc trainer & 20 mins on treadmill (one 1 minute run, two 2 minute runs, and some hills worked in). My legs are feeling it lately!

I'm going to check out a 30 min. Kettleworx technique class on Sunday...I'm excited b/c I've wanted to learn how to use kettlebells for awhile, so this is great news that it's coming to the Y next month.
a little jealousy will do him some good haha.

woot woot! congrats!

Thanks, Dani!

I definitely had a good time, so I'm glad we went (the weather was super crappy & roads were flooding by time we left). LOL...those dudes were funny. One said something about me being sexy & then the other one said, "You know you look good!"

Blonde, yes -- it is nice to know others find me attractive. I agree that sometimes he needs to remember that.

Thanks on the congrats, chick!

Well, scale said 216.2 this morning! I was psyched. Seems like I'm finding my groove, and that suits me just fine. Forgot to reset my alarm for this morning, so I didn't wake up till 6 & I leave home by 7 to get to work. Maybe I can exercise after dinner or something.

After today's over, I only work 1 day until the 30th! I'm so happy to work here as opposed to where I was before.

It doesn't hurt to give the men a gently reminder of what they've got...just sayin...

You're melting!

You only have 1 more day of work and then you're off all those days?! Hooray!

Thanks y'all for all your support. Saw 213.6 this morning...checked it again after coming home from gym to make sure it wasn't a fluke & was only 0.2 difference. I am feeling good about my progress. I had 2 mini-binges over Christmas holiday and my tummy hurt terribly for several nights. I did exercise on Christmas Eve & the day afterwards, so maybe that helped some bloat go away.

I got a Kindle Fire HD and a Kindle Paperwhite from my bf. The Kindle Fire makes it much easier to access LCF than from my phone!

Hope y'all had a lovely holiday.

Wow, AMAZING losses...go Jayce!! Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. I gave my youngest son a Kindle Fire HD for Christmas too as he's a reading maniac (like his mama). I opened it and saw all the wonderful features, now I want one

Saw this on FB & wanted to share:

This is your life, so don't settle for a cheap imitation. Live each moment of it with substance.

Life is too precious to waste even a little bit of it on meaningless junk. Give your time, your attention, your efforts and your energy to what really matters.

If something doesn't concern you, don't let it consume you. If something doesn't really matter, then let it go.

There are only so many hours in this day. Choose to spend every one of those hours in the service of what truly matters.

Your priorities are based not on what you say or intend, but on what you actually do with your time. Choose positive, meaningful priorities by spending your time in positive, meaningful ways.

Devote yourself to what truly matters. And add more richness to your world with each passing moment.

Steal away, Pal! Lol.

Well, my NYE & New Year's Day were lackluster. Not going into details, but I've been doing some thinking/soul-searching & gotta start putting some things in motion.

With that said, I am feeling good about this year! I am proud of myself for losing weight during the holiday season & for hitting the gym the most out of any month on a consistent basis. Consistency will be the key for me to unlock everything I desire.

217 this morning, 216.5 yesterday -- TOM started yesterday (Happy New Year! hahaha). Hoping to get back down to 213.6 I saw last week, but I'd be happy right now with 215 or below. It feels really good to have ended the year on a positive note weight-wise!

Going to think about some goals and formulate my basic plan of attack. Hope you all have a great day!

I love that post, it's a must that I share it (as usual) lol

Congrats on your loss, and I agree with the other ladies; it does feel good to get those compliments and remind your significant other what he has in his possession.

Being a human being is hard sometimes...being a female human being, in particular.

I swear I'm losing my mind sometimes, but I seriously think a lot of it's related to hormones.

Hello there, Lyn! Glad you liked the post...that guy posts a lot of motivational stuff!

Thanks for the encouragement. It does feel good when people notice.

Dani, I didn't even watch the ball drop or nothing! Lol. I was back in the bed just lying there listening to fireworks go off (was in a slight snit, I'll be honest, lol). Oh well...last year I spent NYE in also b/c I was super sick with bronchitis & strep, so at least I didn't have that!

Thanks...I went 15 times last month, so I was pleased with that. Gotta stay focused & keep up with my early morning workouts! I've only been once so far this week, so I gotta play catch-up.

Why, hello there, Jen! Good to hear from you! Yes, the "basics" are what has been working for me, and exercise has been helping my mood as well. I probably should be doing more of it this week since TOM is here & I was a wench yesterday...Lol.

Hey Amber! Thanks! I will admit...I like taking "selfie" pics. LOL!

Well, scale was a blankity-blank-blank this morning...might have had something to do with chocolate eaten before I left work or maybe the mac & cheese I ate for dinner. Oh well. I seriously was about to fall asleep at my desk, was really sad, & overall just felt like poop on a platter.

It was so friggin' cold & windy this morning that I didn't get my butt outta bed, so I must go tomorrow!

Uh oh, a snit's not any good .... hopefully you are now snit-free?? Last year I was sick from the end of November all the way through January--most miserable time EVER! Going to Vegas sick as a dog was probably not my brightest choice, but I wasn't about to miss it!

Don't worry, that scale will move. It'd better or it'll find it's way underneath your tire!

Amber, I hit 213 that 1 day, but it's eluded me since then (with "help" from me, of course). My hormones got the best of me this month, but I'm gonna just keep trucking!!!

Dani, sometimes my snits are epic...smh. Usually they don't last long, though. I am still congested, but I'm feeling a bit better. I slept almost all day Saturday, which was crazy!

Thanks for the encouragement...I appreciate it!

Sara, HI! So glad to see you here again...congrats on your beautiful little girl.

I'm still chuggin' along...I get slightly off-track sometimes, but I'm determined to keep going.

Saw 217.0 & 216.8 this morning -- that was a step in the right direction since I saw 220 yesterday (the absolute HORROR of bloat!!!). My mini-goal right now is to get below 215 & then go from there. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical yesterday even though I absolutely did not want to go, so I told myself I was proud when I was finished.

Packed my lunch/snacks today, but I'm starving for some reason. I need to buy some more baby carrots, cottage cheese, etc. b/c that fills me up moreso than the crackers, etc.
