I don't have Excel on my computer -- it's a dinosaur! Where might I be able to download Excel so that I can view the spreadsheet?
You can't download excel for free but I can print it to adobe so everyone can see it and I think there is a way to post spreadsheets for everyone to view it because I've seen co-op leaders do this. I'm sure I'll figure out the best way.

AWESOME! I do have Adobe, so that will work for me. My computer is so old that I think she might implode if I tried to download another program anyhow.

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

I'm in again! I'm currently at 201.8. I'm 5'7". I would love to get down to 150 lbs (my high school weight). But Right now my goal is by July 4th to be under 200 and then still lose at minimum 1lb a week.

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

okay, i'm in for this round too~~ and i'll be a prize sponsor. $50 grand prize for the winner. mama cloth & pampering package!!



and my stats 179 starting weight. goal is to be 165 by the end. but more would be even better. more importantly i want to fit into my swim suit and my size 12 jeans comfortably with no muffin top/jelly roll belly

i'm doing a combo of the biggest loser dvds and jillian michaels 30 day shred. not dieting per se, but i am trying to be consious of what i eat and my portions. i can't diet on a regular program. i have an eating disorder and dieting makes it very very bad for me and i binge eat and then get sick. so---long story short, no "dieting" for me!

i have before pics from the last challenge and can take new ones today. i lost 6 lbs on the last round so i don't look that different yet.

Yay! What fun!

I also have a history of eating disorders When I got pregnant with DS2, I was at an extremely-unhealthy-for-me 110, which was a size 2 or 4. I did not get to that weight in a healthy way, and I was also anorexic during my college days. So, I have to remain mindful of what I'm doing, because I have a history of being obsessive about my weight and of loathing my body.

FWIW, my aunt/godmother died of complications from anorexia when she was 46 years old. She was 67 lbs (5 feet 3 inches tall) when she died. Zero percent body fat, on dialysis 3 days a week due to the damage done to her kidneys. She became anorexic during her 20s. This is something I keep in mind when I start to get overly obsessive.
