    Gosh, is this really the last (official) week??

    I have really appreciated this challenge- it's been exactly the right kind (non-competitive, success is self-defined, etc). I think we've done something very special here.

    I'd like to continue posting updates here, and I'll invite anyone else who would like to continue to just keep posting. We don't need to make it official. Just check in when you can, and feel free to tag me if you haven't seen me in a while. Because this is not a temporary thing for me- I'm going to be doing this for the rest of my life, I hope.

    It has been a good half-year. I've lost thirty pounds, I'm more active and more comfortable while I'm being active, I'm sleeping like a normal person, and I don't worry about food or constantly crave it anymore. I feel stronger and better-rested in every way. I have a lot left to go to be in the health place I want to be, but I'm in a place where I don't hate my current body. And I no longer think I need to aim for a socially-acceptable goal weight. I'll be fine with remaining heavier than average, even technically "overweight" if I meet my health goals- I don't think "thin" is in the cards for me, and that's okay. Health is the goal.

    Yea, I was thinking that I will probably keep posting. It's a great way to stay accountable.

    Yeah... I need to keep checking in too...
    it's the only way I will keep doing it.

    I did my 20 ab crunches every day and I did my exercise program this morning.

    But I think I have lost less than 3 pounds since October, so that's kind of discouraging.
    @Ivy congratulations on losing30 pounds!
    How did you do it?
    I need to get down from 160 pounds to 140.

    Thanks for the well-wishes. I'll be honest, the way I did it was by getting active and swearing off diets. I track what I eat but I don't restrict. I don't know that this would work for everyone but I have a history of disordered eating and "diets" just put me in that unhealthy place. This has really felt healthy and right. Nothing is off-limits, and with that freedom I don't find myself needing to binge eat or craving "treats."

    Weekly check-in: I had some family stuff that required my full attention this week, but I still tracked and tried to get a walk in when I could. My sleep has been off and I feel the effect of that on my appetite and energy level for sure.

    I agree that the easiest way to start is tracking your food. I use my fitness pal, it's easy and breaks it down, and the phone app has a barcode scanner so anything with a barcode can easily be input into the diary.

    I use my phone Google tracker to track my hours walked each month. I like that because it's not a weekly update but I think about it at random times and will decide to park further back or go running or something.

    I also suggest work out DVD s like constantly because I love them and they're cheap. YouTube has a bunch on the be fit channel for free now.
