    Exercise will be walking across campus to Rec Center - will use MapMyRun to measure distance. The Rec is on the exact opposite, catty corner side of campus, so it's a fairly decent walk.

    Good Morning Judy, and Debbie, I ate half a banana, 1 cup whole grain Cheerios, and 1 cup milk. I feel great this morning. My toddlers are leaving to visit there aunt today and tonight. I am gonna go walk that 3.5 mile track today with my teen, since I don't have to push that double jogging stroller. They can walk about 2 miles, but there tired after that, there are alot of hills as well. Steph

    Good job mixing up the exercise to keep it interesting, and building in family time too! That will help you be successful and less bored.

    Hey all!!

    Just wanted to let yall know that I am still around. Just been busy with my new job. Still haven't sold the house, but my brother is renting from us for a short time while he looks for a place to live for himself.

    Weighed myself yesterday and I was down to 185 - down a pound from the last challenge. My cutting back on night snacking and ice cream is for sure making a difference!

    Starting weight: 198 Current weight: 186

    Hi Judy, Kathy, Rachael, Sharon, Debbie, Roh and Kali, and all you new people.
    I'm just dropping in to say hi and see how everyone is doing.
    I have spent most of my days at the doctors. What a drag. He has ruled that I have Asthma. Can you believe that? 71 years old and just getting asthma. Ha, I think that's funny. But I'm glad it's nothing serious. This is treatable.
    I'll be back when I think I can handle coming to the computer every day.
    Glad you are all doing good. Judy, I would expect you to. Ha. I love all the colors you have put on the start. Very nice.
    Take care and keep on keeping on.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -188; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Don't live life comparing yourself to everyone else.
    God has created you to be you and you are free to be you.

    Well guys you will be so proud. I rode bikes with my teen a woping 10 milles total and walked a mile and a half. It took from 3pm-730pm total, we took breaks at mcdonalds, and wal-mart, i am so exhausted, i have house work to do, so i can not seat her long or I will never get up, my teen is not sure am! Anyway it was fun.

    We got 2 huge water guns at wal-mart and got them full of water, we got to pay some kids back, they ambushed us the other day, drowned my teen in Sunday cloths with water, we are packing our own heat them walk by or ring the door bell, it is ON...LOL!!

    Two second grade, one third, and one 9th grader, they have bikes and mopeds, were gonna catch them off guard!!! My daughter is so excited. I told her she is getting her dignity back...LOL!! Mine shoots 20- ft, her's shots 25 ft, I told Hannah they want expect me, so I will ask them if they want some candy when they walk by the house, to get them close up, so she can catch them by
    foodadvenger replied to SharonNVirginia's response:

I ate that snack wrap with no sauce, and a unsweet tea at mcdonalsd, a pecan delight mini sugar free, and supper some boston but lean only, and I will have jello for desert, I ate a piece of sugar free life saver, while on my bike home from wal-mart. I have not craved no sweets today, it is a miracle! Cheer up, that is why we are hear to be your cheerleaders too. Huggs Steph

    Hi Ausie
    asthma is treatable but be aware that it can also kill you if you aren't taking care of it .. My daughter got diagnosed with asthma when she turned 40 I had asthma since I was a baby up to 2006 and it went away .. I credit my nutrition quest for that . so do take the meds OK
