Smile 3-2-06 Weigh-in first for March!

Well I made it in here today
To make you say
First weigh-in of March
and I will not stray
Thirty-one days
I will watch
The pounds melt away

Great poem, Belle - I will try not to stray.

This week's loss was 3 lbs. I am so motivated now!

Hope everyone else had a great loss, too.

well, i am up 2 lbs this week - but i had really expected to be up more than that since when i have a cold i eat more and can't really exercise, so i'll take it as a good sign that it is only 2lbs. i should post a definite loss next week, now that i am headed back to the gym...thank goodness that pesky cold is gone!

good luck everyone!

Belle, so good to hear from you, hope your having a great vacation.

I'm up .5 lbs. but I'll take it. After going out to eat 4 times this week, DH's 50th b'day I'm just glad it's not more and it's TOM.

Congrats to the losers and stay the samers and us gainers will be down next week.

Good luck, everyone! I only weigh in every other week, so I'm not posting anything today. I wish all of you BIG losses though!

Belle ~ Loved the poem, as usual!

I gained three pounds this week. Time to change directions.

Pugsbest - hang in there with the health concerns, you will win! A healthier you can fight better anyway.
Have a Great Day

A 2 lb loss this week. I am so happy since I was worried that last week's windfall would throw this week off, plus it being TOM. This puts me down 14.5 and a pant size since 1/1/06. I stuck to my guns and tasted success. Success really does taste better than chocolate.

Great job to everyone.

This is so true and I keep telling myself that, but don't listen! 2 lbs. loss is great!

I didn't weigh this morning, I already know it's not good, didn't want to see.

WEIGH-TO-GO LOSER'S!! Next week will be better for us that stayed the same or were chicken to get on that scale!
