    Good luck to everyone. I am ready for this again. Too much wine on Sunday. One of those days I know I should have stopped but wanted to finish the whole box anyway. Not a bright idea. Monday at work was not fun. Oh well, probably won't be the last time. At least this should hold me somewhat accountable.

      I have been stress eating like crazy since Friday. My house is a mess, i have a ton of wedding stuff to do (or it feels that way), and we are getting hardwood floors put in next week. Everything is happening at once, ugh... oh and when i stress eat it's usually chocolate or candy which i have a lot of since my bridal shower had a candy buffett. I think i'm gonna go home and throw everything out.

        It's going going to be tough, but after the first week it should be good.

        I just need to be dedicated and stay motivated.

        Good luck ladies!

          I'm so excited to start this again. I need to get out of this summer eating/drinking craze. I need to get my butt back in the gym. I was so good before. I'm trying to get my FI to run with me at least once a week, maybe even get him to join a gym. I think if he tried to get in shape I'd be more inspired as well.

            OK i'm ready to put this out there...I can't believe I'm posting this
            Click the image to open in full size.

            My starting weight= 150
            My goal=135 (even if it's not within the 8 weeks. this is the weight i want to get back to)
            pants size= 10
            shoe size = 9 (ok, meaningless but at least it doesn't keep creeping up each year)

            Things I'm changing-

            I'm waking up an hour earlier & lifting weights at home using my p90-X videos
            In the evening I'm upping the number of nights a week I do cardio from 3 to 5.

            i was generally eating healthy before, but i'm going to try to do better.
            I'm not drinking alcohol anymore (although I only had a couple of drinks a month.)
            no more chipolte on weekends. I'm making my own healthy version.
            no more eating out (except for work functions when I have to eat)
            no more pigging out on junk food at lab meeting. if there are no heathy options, i'll bring an apple
            no more punch & gatorade. water & diet coke only. it's so easy to drink calories
            no chocolate in the house (except fat free pudding)
            less time on the computer at night, more time being active.

            if I can get stomach back to where it was 3 years ago I'm rewarding myself with boudoir pictures
            if I win the contest, I get to buy a new camera lens
            smal rewards- new gym shorts, and cute new outfits along the way if I'm dropping weight

            Here I am 4 years ago at 135 pounds. this is where i want to be again. yes, it was halloween. this is the only picture i can find of my stomach from that time. man, if my stomach looked like that again i'd always wear belly shirts.

              Ok, I finally sent my payment to Ann and I'm offically IN!!! WHOOOHOOO. After 3 seasons of watching you girls I've finally gotten my act together to do it too.

              Morgan, I'm gonna do before and after pics too (even though I really dont want to see what my body looks like in a picture).

              Good luck girls!

                Damn Morgan you are one brave chick. I can't even look at myself in a mirror let alone take pics and post them here! Kudos to you!! I just sent my weight pic in to Ann, so am ready to start! Of course, after we went out for chicken cheesesteaks and fries tonight. And I ate the whole thing. Usually I only eat half the sandwich and save the rest for dinner another night, but today I ate like 3/4 of the sandwich knowing that I was going to try to be committed to this starting tomorrow. Hmmmm, that makes me want to go have a chocolate snack before bed...

                    Oh man Morgan there should be a bravery badge here. You'd get it for sure. I already did a before pic today and sent it to Ann. Horrifying...absolutely horrifying! I thought to myself how did I let myself get this way, and I think I was genuinely surprised by how I looked in the picture, and then I realized its because I haven't looked at my body/profile in the mirror in a long, long time! You know how it is, you always look at your face and your your upper body and you tip on your toes to check the rest of yourself quickly in the mirror to make sure you look fine when you go out - but you never really ever look at your body. Well today when I saw that picture, it was like I was seeing myself for the first time. I think was actually close to tears, especially when I realize how I looked to other people, and how unhealthy I am. All I can say is, that this is the catalyst I need for change, and I hope I can succeed in atleast shedding 5-10% of my body weight. It's time for a change! I hope that we are all successful!

                      wow morgan, you're super-brave! i love that you've given yourself not only goals, but PRIZES!

                      now think about how much you dislike your pics, and add about 100 pounds. that's approximately what i'm working with here. i don't think i can be as brave as you and post pics ... and i'm not sure anyone really wants to see that anyway! LOL

                      i agree with notyouraverageDW ... i think i stopped really looking at my body and am in denial over what it really looks like to OTHER people.
