Past challenges (my signature line was getting WAY too big!): BLC 2009 Holiday Spectacular - Holiday Movies Team C - A Successmas Story 12/2/09 thru 12/30/09 Crushing Cranberries - BLC #11 9/9/09 thru 12/2/09 Onyx Outlaws - BLC #10 4/22/09 thru 7/15/09 Onyx Outlaws - BLC #9 1/21/09 thru 4/8/09 New You Bootcamp Challenge 1/4/09 thru 1/31/09 Hi - I've been doing weight watchers since 5-4-2006 and as of today (1-9-07), I have lost 46 pounds. I stalled out a little bit at the end of the year, but I think I know what happened and hopefully I'll be picking up losses again! 9-19-07 UPDATE - Well, what I thought must have been wrong, however, I'm still plugging along, slower than I hoped, but in the right direction! I'm at 60 pounds gone now and feeling better! 2-3-07 UPDATE - Still plugging along. Didn't do very well thru Christmas and of course failure is always depressing. But I am trying to learn from others and get back up. Failure doesn't mean you have to stay down and keep failing! I'm still at Weight Watchers - although my attendance has been sketchy. I thought I'd try tracking on Spark to get a better breakdown of my calories. 1-2-2009 - Well, I have totally slacked off and have gained some with back. My husband and I have joined a gym down the road so I'm hoping that will help. Joined the Bootcamp challenge too. Happy New Year! 9-20-2009 There is just too much to update so I will do a quick summary. THANK YOU for the Biggest Loser Challenge here on Sparkpeople! Round 9 was the first one I joined. I started on 1-14-09 at 232.7 and ended on 4-8-09 at 219. Round 10 I just wasn't where I needed to be mentally and ended up over what I started at. Round 11 started on 9-9-09 and there is where I want to start. Thought I'd post a few goals I set for myself back on the 9th. 9-9-09 226.6 start weight 9-16-09 - made 223.3!! Whoohoo! Doing pretty good so far. Have tracked every day except today which was a hectic day. Kinda kept an eye on things (except for that 1/2 chocolate muffin) 9-23-09 224.6 - 225.2 - hmmm, maybe I should track??? 9-30-09 222.6 - 224.6 been sick w/fever 10-07-09 220.6 - 234.2 sick & eating all in sight :( 10-14-09 218.6 - 230.2 hopefully back on track 10-21-09 216.6 - 227.2 10-28-09 214.6 - 227.6 11-4-09 212.6 - 227.4 I have been doing horribly but my own fault. Choosing to eat things I shouldn't be eating and then grazing on them for a few days (ie. birthday cake). 11-11-09 210.6 - 228.3 11-18-09 208.6 - 225.5 11-25-09 206.6 - 224.2 12-2-09 204.6 226.9 1-4-2010 229.5 Well............ didn't do so great. Picking myself up and dusting myself off. Starting bootcamp today and round 12 of the BLC kicks off shortly. For Bootcamp - starting at 229,5 Goals: 1. To participate in every daily requirement 2. To complete every bonus challenge 3. To track my food daily again (I stopped for the last 4 weeks or so) 4. Updated my stats on spark with waist and hip measurements and will do so again on the last day.

My Goals:
I'm hoping that I'll pick back up on my weight loss. It stalled out for reasons I think I know now, so hopefully I'm back in loss mode!

My Program:
I joined Weight Watchers on 5-4-2006 and I tell ya, it is the best thing I've done in a long time. I walked in thinking it wouldn't work, and was very pleasantly surprised when it did! I stalled out at 40 pounds lost at the end of September thru December, but I believe I know why, so hopefully I'll start up losing again!

Personal Information:
I'm a SAHM of 3, my wonderful DH works for Boeing. We have 9 acres in Spanaway, which houses us, some ducks, geese, chickens, 3 cats and one Doberman. We borrow our neighbors horses for pasture control in the spring, summer and fall and up until 2 years ago, we had sheep thru the spring, summer and fall.

    Happy birthday, Traci--glad you are on the Cats Team for the 5% challenge!

    Hey Traci thanks for stopping by! I'm doing okay, for the most part. STRESS is my biggest obstacle so I've just had to set my priorities and move forward. I'm still working out in fact I'm on day 192 of my Streak...I'm really proud I've kept it up. My weight is another story...just keeps going up and down and maintaining and up and down again. VERY frustrating...the adrenal support supplements has helped me A LOT with my sleep. So as I said I just keep moving forward. I'm working hard with my Social Networking to get my Etsy shop the exposure it needs to become successful. Other than than I'm enjoying the summer with the kids and DH.

    How have you been? I see a Birthday is coming up? Hope I didn't miss it!
