Count me in! I'd like to join.. I secretly spy on you all at least twice a week. Obviously being accountable to myself is not working [:0], so I'm gonna try being accountable to you all. We plan to start TTC in the summer so I want to be ready.

Height 5'9
Weight 199.4
Mini Goal 185

I have started to jog 3 days/wk and have been trying to make better food choices. More lean protein, less carbs and more H20!!!!!!

I'd like to join you ladies as well...

Height 5'8"
Weight 162.5
Goal 145 by Christmas

I am watching what I eat, replacing all sodas with water and trying to exercise daily. If I average a 2 lb loss each week, I can meet my goal by Christmas.

Sorry I'm late on this, but life is hectic with a baby!!!

Sorry, I'm late on this ladies. I did weigh in yesterday, just didn't have time to post. So here are my stats.

Height: 5'9
Starting weight 3 months ago was: 211
Today's starting weight: 201.5
First mini-goal: 199
Overall goal weight: 175

I'll probably be adding in additional mini-goals along the way because it seems to make me feel successful, and keep motivated. Right now, everything is about portion control and good food choices...that's how I've lost the first 9.5 lbs. I know I'll need some excercise thrown in somewhere to meet my overall goal, but I am not prepared to committ to that just yet for various reasons.

I'm totally excited and pumped to be starting this up again. I feel like I have new motivation. :-)

GOod luck to everyone! Glad to see so many here. See you tomorrow with tips, tricks, and meal ideas.

Count me in too! I am 215 pounds today (which I just realized is 3 pounds more than a few days ago, which sucks, and I'm hardly eating anything at all. *sigh*). I'm 5'6", and would like to be 200 by Christmas and eventually to 145 again by summer. I'll be out of town for a week or so, but I'll report in when we get back!

Good luck everybody! =D

Welcome! We will be ttc next month and I know that when I do get a BFP I will still be here trying to stay healthy and not gaining too much weight!

It looks like everyone has great goals and will be able to reach them especially with us supporting eachother!!

Goal: well it was 135, but now I'll have to try for that in another 9 months. :) I hope not to gain more than 30 pounds with this pregnancy.

Since June 30,2007...252 lbs (after pregnancy weight) to 221.5 lbs

WLB Round 2
Height 5'7" or 5'8" if it is a humid day (frizzy hair)
Weight 221.5 lbs (but i was holding a blueberry muffin in my hand)
Goal 165 lbs by Christmas!!! (I'll be happy with 199)

I have no realistic plans for adding exercise into my lifestyle at this time. I know it will help. I want to do it. I just don't want to do it bad enough yet. I'm watching my sugars and fats and that has helped. I'm determined to keep it coming on down.
