I have once again stayed steady and I know why: I ate everything this weekend. I was at my parents, something about being around them makes me want to eat lots of sugar and other treats. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

I am steady too. Not too surprising, considering how horrific my diet has been. That's OK. No time like the present to make better food choices!

'Zactly.<br><br>
Since I ever so carefully removed all the PB girl scout cookies from my house (by eating them) I'm good now. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
My resolve this week is to journal EVERY DAY. JOURNAL, JOURNAL, JOURNAL. Gah, why is that so hard for me?

I think I'm on track this week (at least no gain).<br><br>
I find that I am no weighing myself 3x/week (Tues - weight loss challenge, Wed - my normal day and not Thurs - b/c I found a ww team leader that I like). It's kind of a pain in the butt but it does keep me really focused M-W re: eating.

Very good news on the scale.<br><br>
Last week 214.0<br>
this week 208.6<br><br>
I was back active with my cross training, running and throw in one basketball game. My water consumption was much improved over the weekend. And last night after the basketball game at 9 pm all I could think of was to hit the drive-thru on the way home and pig out while gaming at home. But since it was Monday night and I weigh on Tuesday mornings I told myself to just hold off this one time and I will be glad I did in the morning (weigh in). And so I was. For the week my eating out (including fast food) was down as well.<br><br>
Now the challenge is to put together two good weeks in a row.

That's usually my strategy, too!! And I do believe it's Colleen's M.O., if I'm not mistaken... <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Congrats on the losses, <b>Maples</b> and <b>Colleen</b>!

Ya know...I'd like to be able to actually see my ab muscles. I know it's about bodyfat and at about 2 points in my life I was actually able to see them, but I am just at a loss at how to get back there. Help!

<b>Nettie</b>, it's about body composition, yes, but it's also about genetics. Even at my absolute leanest (135 pounds, 14% body fat), I have never had a six-pack.<br><br>
Don't obsess about it. Think about all the wonderful things your body can <i>do</i>... run really, really far, lift weights, dance, jump, walk, etc.<br><br>
But if you want to obsess, PM me and tell me what your normal routine is. I'll be happy to offer some suggestions. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

<b>Nettie</b> I have never been able to see my ab muscles. However, in the last 6 months there is some noticable definition where my fat has melted. Not that you have fat to melt. I noticed the change after starting pilates and following Theia's ab exercises.

Maintained again. Surprisingly considering some of my poor choices in food. The 3 sessions of PT a week must be accounting for something.<br><br>
While on that subject and the subject of abs, I have never had defiend abs. Then again even when I was skinny I never worked on my abs. I have noticed in the 3 weeks I have been doing PT ( they have me concentrating on alot of core ) that my abs are alot stronger and solid. Not sure if and when I lose the gut that Ill have a six pack. Its all abotu genetics moreso than anything else.<br><br>
Great job <b>Maples</b> and <b>Colleen!</b>

Hopefully it isn't all about genetics or I am screwed! Seriously, I can't remember my parents ever being at a healthy weight let alone having defined abs.
