Regarding the spreadsheet not opening:

If you click on the link and it doesn't work, go back and click on it a second time. For some reason that always works for me!

Re: Summer weightloss challenge starts today! check in here!!!

Okay, I'm in!
My starting weight is 231 (sob), my goal weight is 100 pounds lighter by this time next year. End of summer/challenge goal is 23-25 pounds. My plan is:
changing eating habits (going strict since I need to lose so much)
Shred (bought a year ago and have yet to use it!)
C25k
Gym time each week

I tried to access the spreadsheet and can't, so once I figure it out I'll get the info out.

AOTD: My husband is not overweight at all, he is healthy but I wouldn't say he's happy with his lack of activity lately. He's extremely supportive.

Re: Summer weightloss challenge starts today! check in here!!!

I'm in too! I will weigh in the morning.

I've got about 40 lbs to my goal weight of 135. Last week I completed a 7 week weight loss/fitness program during which I lost 10-11 lbs. I'm hoping to keep up the motivation on my own--with your support!--through the next 8 weeks and beyond. I have been eating mindfully (1500 calories a day) and exercising for 60 minutes 4-6 days a week.

re: the spreadsheet - if we can just use google docs again (see last BL thread, first post for link) that would be great. it is super easy for everyone to post and see everyone else's progress.
I changed it so everyone can edit, hope it works I also realize alot of people couldn't get in it so I published it and send the new link to Jess so she can add it, but does this link work?

I think viewing it as a webpage doesn't allow you to edit. I'm not sure why it isn't opening for editing?? It gave me an error too but then when I tried a second time it worked. So odd!

But anyway, I added all the new participants. They are not in alpha order so just search for your name and get used to where it is on the spreadsheet I just tried the link that Jess posted in the first post and it worked for me. When someone gets a chance if they can open and see if they are able to edit their own info I'd appreciate it!

Question of the day: how supportive is your so? do they have weight issues themseves or are they fit as a fiddle?
My DH is incredibly, 100% supportive. We're doing this together. 8 months ago I was 250 lbs, and my DH was 350 lbs. He had some blood work done, and was told that he was diabetic. That news just scared him so much that he vowed that day to change his life. He is 56 years old (26 years older than I am) and he wants to be healthy for his children so that he can be around for them for as long as possible.

So starting that day we started eating healthy! We cut out most red meats and buy ground turkey instead, and we eat a lot of chicken. No more white rice - now it's brown rice. Lots of fruit and veggies and whole grains. It's actually been a really fun journey to be on together, and it certainly is not a diet - it's a true life style change. We don't want to be fat and unhealthy, and we don't want to set that example for our children.

In 8 months, I've gone from 250 to 186. And my DH has gone from 350 to 224. He no longer has high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes. He gets down on the floor and plays with the kids. It has been AMAZING and AWESOME to watch him work so hard. I love his dedication and commitment to be the best father he can be.



Somewhere on this weightloss forum I posted his full story, plus before and after pictures if anyone is interested in seeing!!
