64 Week 2 (Neely)

Rough week!!! I hope this starts getting easier!

65 Week 2 (Austyn)


I am so frustrated to see the same number on the scale week after week. I am exercising 4 days a week,(still trying to work up to 6) I have cut down on sweets, soda, fast food, junk food, and I am eating more fruits and veggies and not eating after 8pm. I am drinking more water and I am seeing nothing from it. It makes me want to cry. And then it makes me actually cry. Like last night when I was jogging and the last two laps I was fighting tears and a huge lump in my throat. I finished my 2 miles (which is still pretty hard for me) and I broke down. The tears and the gasping. Luckily Kathi is really sweet and didn't slap me and tell me to snap out of it. I'm just sick of being fat and I'm really frustrated.

Chip Cravings

I had a horrible craving for chips yesterday. I had this yummy (healthy) homemade salsa and nothing to eat it with. So I found a solution, if anyone else is interested:

Take a couple of corn tortillas and cut them into wedges with a pizza cutter. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray and lay out the tortilla wedges in a single layer. Spray the top of the tortillas with more nonstick spray. Bake in a preheated 400 F oven for about 5 minutes. Presto! Homemade tortilla chips with no fat and very little sodium!

WOO HOO!!!!!!!

I got ALL 10 points yesterday!!!!!! This is really hard for me! I started eating more when I got preggers with Colby, and apparently haven't stopped, so yesterday was a REALLY good day for me! I'm patting myself on the back. Now, let's see how long it lasts....................;)

Twylla 70

Week two was hard! I really miss my soda.

Monday, September 7, 2009

Jimmy 70, Laura 70

The second week was not as hard as I thought it would be, except that I wanted ice cream on days 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. Then when the craving became so strong I would take off my shirt and look in the mirror and say to myself, "Jimmy, ice cream has been bad to you." -Jimmy

Week 2 = harder than week 1!! -Laura

70 Amber & 69 David

This week was harder, I knew what to expect and knew it was going to be hard. It is a mental battle that is for sure. It helps to have others around you doing it so you can empathize with one another. Amber

I am stuck on 69 and can't quite get over it. So from now on I will be giving myself full credit and adjusting the challenge points to make 69 the maximum points possible!!!! This can apply for everyone if you want. David

extra credit points for baby week

I think i should get extra credit points on the days i was in the hospital with baby # 4 and a little break on the day she was born cause its a new born birthday, right?

Week one points


Jamie 52, 37 James 56, 48 Our struggles with perfection

So we're a little late reporting our points but here goes....

Jamie week #1 - 52

James week #1 - 56

Jamie week #2 - 37

James week #2 - 48

Wow this challenge is hard. I'm doing good with most of it but the lack of journal writing and 2 veggies a day is killing my points. Maybe we should get extra points if we exercise longer than 30 minutes a day....that offsets the sweet and soda right? James

I officially suck with sweets and soda. Planning on doing better on week 3. Anyone need a workout partner? Jamie


Yeah...another week done. Not as good as last week, but that's okay, right? I'm still feeling really good about it :)


This has been an awesome challenge for me! I may not win, but in three weeks time I have noticed a difference in my clothes as well as a 6 lb. loss. More than anything, it makes me stop and think of what's important in my life and to take care of myself more. I wasn't feeling well WED & THURS. so I was able to account for 3 sick pts. Thanks Laura for the challenge!!!!!!!

63 points

I wanted to do better than last week, but I had a hard time over the weekend. I still only worked out 4 days again! Anyway, I guess we just keep on chuggin'. For anyone who has a hard time with veggies like me, this week I tried and got a huge amount of produce for a very reasonable price. They have locations all around AZ and UT. Check it out.

70 again! Hooray!!

This week was harder. I had to use nearly all my freebie points, but still I made it. Whew!

Hey Margaret,, lazy? ... you did great. I will do better this week.


well I wanted to do better this week thenI did last week but that didnt go so well. my husband has been out of town for a month and was able to fly home for 4 days this last week he left again tonight. So hopefully I will do better next week.


Week 2 seemed a little harder. I'm probably getting lazier.
