Go Kim! I like that you didn't wait to begin this challenge until after Memorial Day! I'm going to think about you when I go out with friends and to a cookout. Maybe that will help me not to overindulge!

Weather: Looks like it'll be a nice sunny day today.
Other news: I haven't eaten yet today - just my morning medication and water so far. I did get news that my boss ordered bagels and fruit for everyone this morning, so I'll probably have something once that comes in.

Lost a pound since yesterday. Figures I start the ten day challenge this way. And I had a lot of difficulty figuring out my waist and hip measurements. So I measured my waist at my belly button, my hip at the hip bone crest, as close as I could get to it while at the same time avoiding my little belly hang as much as possible. Now my hips at hip joint look like the widest part of my body, but did not measure that because I thought it might be the wrong place.


Weather is gorgeous, completely clear sky temperature started out in low 60's and will have a high of 71.


Walked 2 miles at 8:30 a.m. with my neighbor, and then another mile at 11 a.m. with my 15 year old beautiful daughter. She brought her camera and took pictures of flowers, roses, birds, and a squirrel.


My mood: Typical day of fighting off varying levels of crappy mood because all I do each day is wash dishes and do laundry among the other usual housekeeping chores and watch a two television shows and play plants vs. zombies on my iPhone. Plus feel annoyed at usual everyday things like why aren't my kids working, because hubby doesn't want them to. Our money is tight, but not impossible. Still, they could have worked like all of their peers and my relatives do. Hey, that is supposed to be fun and responsible experience if nothing else. First hand money managing and understanding hours worked equals so much money, less taxes. Feeling of personal accomplishment, right? etcetera, on life goes...


I keep trying to stay positive every day, all day. Plus after raising kids and putting my design career on hold I am not able to get back in a job, especially as I keep getting older, 52, grayer, coloring hurts my scalp, and overweight.


So I am trying to make the best of it and keep it together while I am here every day for three wonderful teenagers for another summer. But that is a blessing too, right!

Actually both my thighs are 29". And to think my waist used to be 18" in high school, maybe less. Don't tell anyone, yeah, ha! I was barely 97 pounds, and looked amazing!

I had two packets of Quaker oatmeal today for breakfast - one original and one of apple cinnamon.

Then for my morning snack I had 3/4 of a plain bagel with approx. 3 Tbsp of the garden veggie cream cheese. Also, about 1/2 cup of mixed fruit (strawberries, grapes, melon, pineapple).

Okay, so I just replied, but I think webMD decided to fail at that moment. Or, it'll show up later and there will be two posts.

Breakfast was two Quaker oatmeal packets. One original and one apple cinnamon. Water.

Morning snack was 3/4 of a bagel with 3 Tbsp of Garden Veggie cream cheese. And 1/2 cup of mixed fruit (strawberries, grapes, melons, pineapple).

Kali and Laura, thanks for joining me!
Both of you, good going on the measurements and weigh ins.

****need an update on your intake so far if possible ***

Laura, good going on the AM exercise. Keep at it! Stop stressing about what your family ISN'T doing. They are all (practically) adults. Let them worry about themselves for this 10 days. You can't control that. You CAN control YOU.
Great news about the lb lost... unfortunately IT DOESN'T count on this experiment, but it was a nice surprise for you to wake up to. Let's keep it off and go fetch some more lbs we don't need, huh?

Kali? I take it you aren't a morning exerciser.... That's ok, just get something in today. Every little bit helps. Remember to strive for at least 1/2 hour of solid exercise per day , plus the daily grind stuff like dishwashing, cooking, laundry and shopping that burn some extra calories.

Back to this this PM
huggs you guys!

Ok, Ladies
Day 1 tape measure totals, May 24,2013

Kim 292.5"

Remember, NOT a competition between us. Just our own inner fat girl.

I'm taking an "instant" pic on my phone for all of our beginning areas of measurement. Please take the time if you haven't already to write them down so that you can remeasure the same spots on morning of 6th day.

Yay! I'm excited that you are joining us Kathy!

I'm an afternoon/evening exerciser. I have work early in the morning and just can't seem to go to bed early enough to wake up any earlier than I do. Oh well!

I'm just the same Kali and I have no excuse except personal preference. I start my exercise (what I happen to do) around 4pm and dribble it into the evening.
