    I was at a training all last week so I only worked out 2 days. YUCK!! I had been so good for the 2 weeks before that going to the gym 5 days each week. But I just got home from the gym - I did 45 minutes on the stair machine and some light abs. I think I might do a video later.

    I have a little over 3 weeks left so I really need to pay attention to my diet. I am 12 days with no soda though!!

    Jen - You are totally motivating me to focus. Thanks!!!

      Shelley, you'll get there. You had a rough month, last month. And I can totally see getting lazy now that you've changed the wedding date. But trust me, the more you do now, the less you'll have to do later. You can do it!!!! Start small. Sometime like, giving up the soda or doing leg lifts at night. Small changes are what helps get you back on track.

          TOTALLY!!!! My stomach is so much flatter. Diet soda really bloats you.

              OK guys I am starting my exercise/diet today! Monday's always are crappy anyways - I never knew about that dt. pop thing?? So I am finishing my last Dt. Mountain Dew as I write this - I have a little less then 5 months to lose so here goes nothing - I joined a class at the y 2 times a week so hopefully that helps too - and Self.com has an awesome website - free- that you can track calories that you eat and calories that you burn - you should check it out - sooooo yes I have been sitting at the computer for longer than I should've but signing up is the first step right?? Okay - I'm off to work out......

                I can't say that my weight loss is a direct relation to getting off diet soda, but I definitely get more water in because of it... and I'm sleeping better! I've been off for almost 2 months now, and I think its a good thing. Very occassionally I'll have a cup of coffee, like once every 2 weeks. I think just getting rid of caffeine is a positive change.

                Betsy - congrats on making the decision to start! That's probably the hardest part, making the original committment. I'm sure you'll do awesome and you have plenty of time! Tracking my calories and exercise has been a great motivator to eat healthy and stick with it. I started 2 months ago, and I've lost 11 pounds so far, with a goal of 15-17!

                  Yeah Betsy!!!! Good for you. It's so great to get new people on this thread who are serious about losing weight and want the motivation.

                  I worked out again last night (1 hour on the treadmill, 150 crunches and 20 leg lifts with each leg.) But Jen, you're right about that scale thing. I need to stop it. I gained back a half pound today (don't ask me how) and it pissed me off to see it. So starting now, I'm only going to weigh myself on Saturday's (let's see how long this lasts.)

                  Keep up the good work ladies. And keep drinking that water!!!!

                    Jen - you will definitely thank yourself for staying off the scale. And seriously, make amends with the tape measure! I guarantee that you'll be pleasantly surprised. The initial measurements scared me, but 2 weeks later they were less, and 8 weeks later, I've lost 2.5" off my waist and 2" off my hips! Even the weeks when the scale didn't move, the tape measure did. I would suggest only measuring twice a month though, as it doesn't change as rapidly as the scale. In any case, it sounds like you're doing great! Stick with it and don't get discouraged!

                      Force of habit - I weighed myself again this morning. It was only afterwards that I remembered I wasn't suppose to be doing this anymore - only on Saturday's. Oh well. No change in my weight from yesterday so that's ok.

                      I didn't work out last night. I ended up working late and then I actually did some wedding stuff (bought all the bridal party gifts.) By the time I got home, it was late and I figured since I worked out 4 days in a row, I could take a break.

                      Jen - I will try the tape measure. On Saturday, after I weight myself, I"ll measure myself too. Then, like you said, I won't do it again for at least 2 weeks and see how I do. Oh boy, I'm scared!!!!

                      By the way, have I mentioned how much I LOVE the Lean Cuisine Panini's. My goodness, they are soooo good. My favorite is the Steak, cheddar and mushroom. I could eat that one everyday. And it's only 290 calories. YUM!!!
