Thanks! I couldn't figure it out and the on-line number seemed wrong.

Ooops... I realize what I said was not exactly what I was trying to say. I meant that we're only measuring differences in weight loss (lbs) not in inches lost or body fat lost. And the pounds are shown as a percentage of the previous week's pounds, which does help make it fair because the bigger you are the more calories you burn. Buuuut.... that's not exactly what I said to begin with. I'm having serious communication issues today! My boss even responded to my explanation of something with "I have no idea what you just said!"

Anyway.... CONGRATS HOLLY! Way to set the bar high this week. You're going to be tough to beat!

i didn't think i had done any self-deprecating (at least not this time) so i went back and read what i wrote ... guess i wasn't being clear either (i have sapphire's prob today haha). what i meant was that where a 5lb loss might mean the difference of a whole clothing size for you, i would likely need to lose 20 before there was an evident difference/size change. wasn't being negative, just factual. i know i can be successful at losing weight (i've done it many times before)! the real challenge will be not to allow myself to gain it back this time and make the number on scale continue to go down, down, down! cheesy.gif

hahaha holls, you crack me up! it was only week one so mine is probably mostly water weight but i'll take the win! anyway, it's easy to be motivated and have big losses at the start ... week two is the true test! time to separate the women from the girls! haha

p.s. great job everyone! holls you set the bar high!

i feel your pain, di! my coworker who shares my office eats whatever she wants (bacon-cheese-fries, cheetos, m&ms, pizza) all day long, and just has a super-fast metabolism so she is still only about 120 lbs. i know for a fact that she never exercises. EVER. all she has going for her is that she chases after two kids when she gets home (ages 11 and 5). that, and she is constantly talking a mile a minute ... seriously she NEVER shuts up even for a second ... that's gotta burn something!
