  1. I only lost a pound this week but hey it's better than staying the same. I am concentrating hard on not being so tempted this week and getting to the gym at least 4 times.

    How did you all do?

  2. I lost .8 pound this week and am very proud of it! I stuck to the program and am at peace with .8 because I was faithful. If I had "blown it" and lost .8 then I'd be discouraged and frustrated. How was everyone else's week?

  4. We ALL seem to be in the same boat together…..I stayed the same and so did Alex….we lost for the first 7 weeks and this week NOTHING!

    We are so upset. We reevaluated the week and came up with 2 things to improve on this week:

    1. less soup – it has too much sodium
    2. take Matt's suggestion to take our calories for the day and divide by 4…… = 3 meals and the last one in 1/2 for 2 snacks.

    We are praying it will get us out of this slump.

    We also need to focus on the great 8 weeks thus far of 62#'s lost total.

    Hang in there everyone

  5. OK…I am blown away that Alex and Lisa have lost 62 pounds so far. It has taken me 2 years to lose 65 pounds. You have worked very hard. Be encouraged!

  6. Ya way to go! That's awesome! I'm thinking about taking Crossfit. Scared to pieces to take it because it's like a Jillian bootcamp but I think I need it!!

  7. Hi Rebecca,

    I haven't done Crossfit but started Jillian Michaels's Shred video a week ago and it's incredible. Can see changes already in abs and lower body. It's just motivating to do something different once in a while. Keep up the good work!

  8. Jillian's Shred video was interesting. It was very hard and I thought I had been doing some great things with my cardio and strength training. It was very intimidating when she started out right away with pushups! I can't even do the girly kind. 😦 However, I felt a little bit better as the video went on and even though it was very challenging I could do the activities she was doing. I will continue to use it to change up my workout!

  9. Hey Amanda….if it makes you feel any better we have doing the Shred video 1-2 times a week for 8 weeks and still can't do it all at Level 1!
