Thanks jmcambra!

Just checking in on this 1st day of August! I did lose the 15lbs I wanted to lose in the month of July. YAY ME!!! I'll be happy with a 10lb loss for the month of August. My face is getting way too small. The "doberman pincher" look runs in my family and I am scared to see what I will look like once I lose these last 40lbs. My body is alot (((jigglier))) than I want it to be, but I can deal with it. I have finally mastered the "stairmaster", I can do 30 min. jogs on the treadmill, I'm up to 200 crunches a day. I probably could challenge myself some more, but as long as I'm still losing I'm not going to push myself. The count down is on...only 16lbs to ONE-DER-LAND...WOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!! :wow2::cheer2:;):)

Hi Tia, Juli, and Mary! Mary, to update my ticker I just click on my ticker and it takes me straight to the update page. I click on edit/update, put in my password, change my weight and date and click next and it's changed. Hope this helps if you try the ticker again.

Have a great month everyone!!!

I was just talking to my daughter this morning about how I can't wait to get back into the 100s.

Happy August everybody.

This month I am commiting to working out more days than not. I did not make it to the gym today but, tomorrows another day.

I feel sooooo much better when I go. I do Water aerobics. Love it. Three days a week I do strenght training. Hope to get some tone to the flab.

It is so encouraging to read everybodys posts. Helps knowing other people are going through the same thing.

Keep up the good work everyone.

Here's to a successful August!

Robin

Maybe "MASTERED" is a strong word, but when I first tried using the stairmaster I would sink like a rock everytime. I couldn't even stay up on that thing for 2 seconds. Either my legs weren't strong enough or I was just too dang heavy! Now, I am able to get up on that thing and stay up there with very little arm support. I don't do it very long because it's part of the circuit so at the most 60 seconds at a time, but I CAN DO IT!!! :)

I'm too embarrassed to even try the stairmaster. I'm afraid I'll jump on, sink, and not be able to climb up! I don't think mastered is too strong of a word, that's awesome!

Hey, Marchies! I had my sixth fill two days ago so I'm hopeful that I will finally have restriction (I'm at 2.8 in a 4 cc band). The great news is that this morning I was down 5 lbs! I'm so excited, since I've been on a plateau for over a month now. I'm not changing my ticker yet because I do fluctuate before really settling into a weight but if this holds, I only have 3 lbs. to go before ONE-derland! I'm setting the goal to be there by the end of August. I can do it if I continue with my average of 1 lb. per week since surgery--of course, I'll be THRILLED if I do better than that! Woohoo!

Happy August--keep up the great work Marchie friends.

Thanks for the shopping tips. I've determined that I just can't wear a one piece dress. I have one last hope - a silk charmeuse godet skirt with a cap-sleeve, v-neck blouse. This HAS to work, or I don't know what else to do. I've tried about every style. My shape is hard to fit right now. The inches aren't coming off my waist like I hoped. My hips and legs are shrinking though. It's hard to get excited about buying clothes because things are too tight in the waist but loose in the hips.

I've made a major committment to exercise this month. I really failed last month - at exercise and weightloss both. I have my chart up and will do DAILY exercise. I'm concentrating on yoga, eliptical, circuit, & walking.

TammyJ, you are doing awesome!!

Congratulations on breaking that plateau Momlambert!

Sophie:

I am having the very same problem, with my weight lost, its just not coming off of the waist. I know exactly what you mean about the hard to fit part. If I can get the pant done up at the waist then the rest of it is so baggy I look like a clown.

I do some swimming and walking for my activities, what should I be doing to correct this? Anyone have any suggestions?
