Late Update

I'm so far behind in my blog reading and didn't even get around to update my challenge(s) status this weekend. I guess it's a good thing I'm not wasting the summer sitting in front of the computer screen but I hate falling so far behind. I have almost 600 unread posts in my reader so if anything earth shatteringly important is going on out there it may take me a while to catch up with it all. I was extremely tempted to "mark all as read" but just can't bring myself to do it in case I miss something big. I may not comment while plowing through all those posts but I'll get caught up soon and back to commenting regularly again.

I'm just going to give a brief summary update for the 101 Days of Summer Challenge and the Summer Challenge 2010.

Goal No. 1: Lose 20 pounds (average 2 pounds per week)

Challenge Starting Weight: 215
Week 1: 212.3 (-2.7)
Week 2: 211.6 (-0.7)
Week 3: 211.6 (-0.0)
Week 4: 207.9 (-3.7)
Week 5: 207.9 (-0.0)
Week 6: 209.2 (+1.3)
Week 7: 207.2 (-2.0)
Week 8: 206.4 (-0.8)
Week 9: 207.0 (+0.6)

I wish I could have used the numbers I saw on the scale on Thursday as I was down over a pound and a half but I'm sticking to my Friday weigh ins so a gain of 0.6 pounds is what it is. Let's hope I can show a decent loss next week so I can creep closer to that elusive onederland.

Things are pretty much status quo with the rest of my challenge goals. I'm happy to report I got my ass into the weight room TWICE last week with a little encouragement from Cammy. Sometimes all we need is a little push or a big fat kick in the ass to get us moving. Feel free to give me either one if you think I need it. Thanks Cammy!

I'm off to try to catch up on what's going on with all of you. I hope you're staying cool and enjoying the dog days of summer (or winter if you're down under).

Rock on, Challengers.


  1. 600 posts in your reader? I would feel so overwhelmed and hit the 'read' button LOL!

  2. Woo-hoo! I didn't really doubt you'd do it, you know.

    Nothing much going on in my neck of the woods, so if you haven't already, mark me as read. :)

  3. Don't worry about reading. Don't worry about living. Just get to it. 215 down to 207 is marvelous. With the WLS my doc just told me that the 27 lbs I lost is not enough. grrrrh

  4. Lori: I'm so tempted. When I logged on today it was over 800. I don't think I'll ever catch up.

    Cammy: I'm glad someone has faith in me even if I don't always have it in myself. I'll always read my favorites no matter how many unread posts I have to get through.

    Janell: It's crazy any doctor, even a WLS doc, would say 27 lbs is not enough. Did you have to hold yourself back from punching him in the face? Pay no attention to the idiot in the white coat. What do they know anyway?
