Okay, I'm game! I actually should lose about 40 lbs. I have my diabetes in good check so now it's time for my weight to be also... We did this at a job nearly 30 yrs. ago, and we had a lot of fun, and were supportive of each other. We were all winners as far as I was concerned... Ten lbs. is a good starting point for me. Mine will probably be a slow go as I recently lost 10 lbs., well since mid November, but I am looking forward to this!

Today is the day ladies! Here we go! Minny, can you please be our official cheerleader?? You are so kind, helpful & supportive.

EDIT: The docs scale said I am 2 and 1/4 lbs. from my goal. (I feel it needs to be said I lost the bulk of my weight last summer with the help of the gals on the Starting a Fitness Routine thread, and it was very helpful.
Thank you again ladies.....) This checking in and having to report each week is very helpful for me.

I stopped at the market and got lots of healthy dinner "stuff" and F & V's for my folks and I. We are having baked salmon and NO carbs tonite! (I bake my fish in white wine, a small dab of butter, capers and loads of veggies). I just had my green apple and hummus for my snack. Nummy!

I am looking forward to lots of posts here today!

J~

PS - Tomorrow starts me back at the gym. I think I told ya'll I got the green lite. Thank goodness. Been 2 months I think?

I weighed in at 163 lbs. this morning and I want to lose 30 lbs in a year so I guess that works out to 5 lbs weight loss during this time period.

Okay, since some of you are brave I'll post my starting weight too - 195. I'm going to try to lose about 2 pounds a week as recommended by my doc.

Minny, Keeping cheering us on !
