princess? me? my favorite is Mary Poppins, but she's not a princess in my mind. Belle would be my choice too, right now she's my favorite Princess b/c i relate to her like others mentioned and yellow is my favorite color

i did WI last week, i'm up 5 lbs from pre-vacation. i'm sure i won't get that all off this final week but i've been doing some self-talk to remember why I want to accomplish this goal and that yes it can and will be done

pjlla -- i am soooo impressed with your consistency of working out on vacation!

Good luck with your party, Maria! You've had a busy August, for sure!


What is the most crucial lesson you have learned from this summer?


The biggest thing for me is that just because I'm in a CRAZY food environment, just because I'm on vacation, just because it's summer does not mean I have to gain weight. It's me, not the situation that holds the power, and there are things I can do in almost any situation to either make positive strides or at least minimize damage.

I can not believe how much I have lost this summer. I'm so grateful for the daily support and the accountability of the regular Friday weigh in.
What a great revelation. It's hard sometimes to take the power that we have, but you have harnessed it and used it for good!

Maria

Hello, losers!

I am back from DL. I was only gone three nights but it seems longer. We had a wonderful time even though it was very hot -- 102 on Thursday! I logged a lot of steps on my pedometer -- 13,571 on Wednesday, 21,724 on Thursday and 15,957 on Friday. That was a lot of walking for two small parks!

Thanks again, pjlla and disney1990, for coaching last week and thanks to Worfiedoodles for coaching our final week!

The most crucial lesson that I learned from this summer is don't give up! It takes time to figure out what is going to work for you in your weight loss journey. I didn't lose as much as I had hoped in this challenge but I feel like I really know what needs to be done, and more importantly, how to apply that knowledge. I learned that I am a lot stronger than I was at the beginning of the year, even if I haven't lost as much weight as I had hoped to by now. Being healthy is important and you can be healthy while you are losing.

This is so true and welcome back!

I'm down 2 pant sizes now, so I must finally be doing something right!
Congratulations on the pant sizes!

This is a long road. I need to appreciate the journey as well. So it takes me a little longer to get there. At least I have enjoyed the ride.

I have gained a pound this week because I took a week off the diet. Now, I am going to get right back on track. No recriminations about gaining weight or slipping off my diet. This is a lifestyle change and I can do this!!
Yes, you can and I really admire the change in your thinking that I've seen since the beginning of this challenge. You've got a great attitude and it shows in your success!

This is a hard one! When I was little I loved Cinderella but that was a time when there weren't too many princesses to choose from -- Snow White and Aurora were it. I would have to say I am more like Belle because I love to read and DH can be a little beastly but I wouldn't look good in the yellow dress -- I prefer Cinderella's outfit!

Have a great, OP day all!

Making yourself a priority is a tough one. Fantastic words of wisdom!

You are doing many things right! Actually sticking to whatever plan you choose is very hard We are an "instant gratification" society, and something that takes a long time to achieve is very hard for us, unless we are in a setting where someone else is making us do milestones (like high school or college).

I finally started looking at calories and really focusing on what I was eating. On plan weeks I can pretty consistently lose 1-2 pounds. I've definitely had up and down weeks this summer, but I've gotten back on plan much, much faster each time than I would have without BL.
Yep, we have to change our eating. All calories are not equal, it's almost like reprogramming your body to change your lifestyle!

I keep having those slips, too, but you are right, one slip does not need to turn into a full blown slide down the slope!

Right now, I'm only down a couple pound since the start of the challenge, which is way less than hoped for. On a positive note, I've shown that I can maintain

I truly enjoy the challenge, and am looking forward to a more successful fall challenge
I'm with you, as you of all people know I am not meeting my goal -- but that's ok, I wasn't mentally or timewise prepared for the losses I had hoped for this summer. We are setting ourselves up now with the tools we need for a great loss, and I think this is going to be an incredible Autumn!

I assume you mean in regards to healthy eating/weight loss. I learned that I can have a good time without it always revolving around over-eating and that NO MATTER WHAT, that I MUST keep up my exercise routine.
So any how... now that I made a short story long, that is what I learned above all else this summer.................P
I can't believe all the fantastic answers to this question. These are replies I'm going to print and post in my motivation journal -- THANK YOU to everyone for sharing!

[If you were a Disney princess, which one would you be? I know some people say they're more like villains or don't have a girly bone in their bodies, but pick a quality in a particular princess that you identify with!

I could answer my own question My favorite princess is Belle. She reads, she's witty, she's kind, she's courageous, and she sees beyond the surface to find quality to love. I'd like to think I'm like her -- or at least I want to be like her!

Well my answer isn't so much about the character of the princess but I identify myself with Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty because we are both only daughters in our family and we both fell in love with a Prince Phillip! So that makes her my favorite and the one I would be!
Very nice! Now, if you'd chosen Jasmine for the same reasons, I'd just have to ask you how your husband got his name!

If it has to be a REAL princess, I guess I'd choose....Cinderella - she cleans up nice and can outrun the Prince!
No hard and fast Princess criteria -- If Mulan can save China, that's royal enough for me!

Ariel has always been my favorite, but my personality is a lot more like Belle - loves to read, doesn't fit in, wants some adventure, and unexpectedly meets a prince-in-disguise.
Aw, to paraphrase the words of Nickelback, "when your lookin' for a diamond in the rough, you never know when he'll show up" -- or what he'll look like. So glad you found your Beast!

I'd say Belle as well for the reading, adventure

But I'd have to say Cinderella is the one that always takes my breath away. Her beauty and style is just so beautiful.
I think the Cinderella era was amazing. She was definitely the most stylish and graceful princess -- and yet her buddies are mice! This girl has layers!

Princess.....hmmmm. Hate to repeat what everyone else is but I would be Belle because she reads, is no nonsense, and got together with a really hairy guy! He He He.

I am doing well so far this week. I have been back on plan 6 days since my binge and feel good about it. My trip to DL is in 17 days! Woo Hoo! I am a bit nervous about how much I might gain but at least I know how to get back on the wagon and I don't think I have anything else coming up before the holidays that will side track me.

I'm wondering since we have so many "Belle" girls -- did we decide we'd married the beast before or after the wedding?

Ok, that's a good question I'm going to save for tomorrow -- Hey, it's the last week, we can be a little silly!

I am very excited that Disney is finally creating and promoting an African-American princess. There are so many little girls who had no princess who looked remotely like them (I can remember being really, really excited because Belle was a brunette -- and I was in my early 20s!) -- ok, maybe that's more a commentary on me personally, but anyhoo -- I am very happy there are now "princesses" for almost all ethnic groups prominent in the U.S. I can't think of a Latina one (yea, Disney, where's MY princess?! ), but hopefully that's just because I'm overlooking someone...

Anyway, onward with a great losing day!
Maria

I'm another Belle, mostly because of the reading. I think its interesting that so many of us picked Belle.

I had a fun weekend, which included a Ladies Night. It started at my house, with 10 of us having drinks and appy's, then we went out to the bar for some dancing.

You are right back on track and doing fantastic! To reiterate the advice others have given, you are in control. You can go on vacation and not gain a ton of weight, and if you do gain, you have the tools to take it right back off!

Ladies' Night! Kool and the Gang gave a concert at a venue close to my house last weekend, and they started off with Ladies' Night and ended with Celebration. We could hear every word clear as day, and we enjoyed the nostalgic music!

It's almost like we're having a Belle convention, isn't it?! Very interesting...

Monday QOTD (Thanks, Lisa!): What Disney princess or "humanesque" (Peter Pan, not Pluto) character's clothes would suit you best?

I'm going to say Esmeralda. I think the full skirt and peasant top in those colors would look good on me. Someday when I'm a bit smaller (ok, much), I would look good in Jasmine's purple princess get-up.

I'm off to run my 4.5 mi on the TM this morning. No work today -- ds doesn't have school yet and camp is over. It's our one in-between day...

Maria

Good morning everyone,

Sounds like you've been having a good week here. We just spend 4 nights with my family at a lake in maine, and though we did drink a lot, and eat very well, I didn't do my late night snacking which is what can really kill me, and we all went with the intention of starting to eat healthy, so we had lots of fruits with us. I weigh the same as on wed before I left, so I'm happy. Today after I finish the laundry and repack, my son and I head to hampton beach for 3 nights. I'm looking forward to just the two of us relaxing and unwinding before school starts next week.

I'm sad I'm missing the last week of the challenge, but so glad I was a part of it, and even though I'm heavier than I was in may, with all that I've been through, I know it could have been worse if I wasn't checking in and thinking about you guys throughout the weeks.

It has been a fun challenge. Thanks to all the coaches we've had. The qotd's really make it interesting, and a fun way to get to know everyone.

For some qotd- I think I would like to be cinderella. On my first disney trip I bought a cinderella ornament, and I'm still waiting for my prince to come.

What I've learned this summer, is that I have to move. I can not lose weight without exercise any more. (I had figured that out last summer when I stopped exercising and gained 10 pounds, and did that again this summer)

for todays qotd, I love cinderella's dress, and though the size I'd wear would be much larger than hers, the style is so nice, and would hide my trouble areas below the waist.

Molli, Melanie, and Lisa- sounds like you had some awesome trips.

Remember nothing tastes as great as being thin feels. That's one I try to remember. I thought of it as we were hiking up a small mountain on friday, and I could hardly breathe. It was much easier last year, and next time it will be easier again.

have a great last week of summer

, Maria, of course, we can have fun on our challenge, especially the last week. I have to agree with Kathy. I think that the Cinderella dress in a larger size would look good on me. I have a large bust and small waist and those hoops would cover up the stuff below the waist that doesn't look so nice.

Glad to hear that you had a good time with your family. I know that you are looking forward to your time with Michael this week-end. I know that you will be doing a lot of swimming with your little fish!

This is our last week before school starts, too. No child care so DS will go to the office with us for a few hours this morning. Then we will take turns staying home the rest of the week. We are actually kind of looking forward to it. It is only four days as our office is closed on Fridays.

I will be posting the opening thread for BL8 later this week. I don't want to take anything away from this challenge. Ususally we still chatter on the old thread for a few days before the final results are posted then go to the new thread. A lot of people who took the summer off are coming back for fall.

I want to say a big thanks to our weightkeeper, LuvBaloo, our COW keeper, donac, and all of the folks that coached this challenge. It was great having a different coach each week and gave us a lot of new perspectives and ideas. And we are all to be congratulated for sticking this out all summer long. It wasn't easy but it was always a lot of fun and much better to be in the wagon together!

Have a great OP day all!

Hi everyone. We got back from DW 2am on Sat morning. Then I spent Saturday and Sunday getting ready and bringing ds2 down to college. So far this morning I had to go grocery shopping since I start school tomorrow morning.

I made it through the 4 days but it was tough. The weather was very hot and humid. Every time I left the room my hair was dry and within 2 hours my hair was soaking wet(my hair seems to attract water but it is really badevery time we go to Fl). FIrst day I got a blister on the heel of my left foot. Dh found some moleskin and borrowed some scissors from the store at POFQ and fixed up my blister. ON Thursday we went to AK and came back to the hotel early so we could go for a swim and have lunch. As I was walking to lunch my right knee gave out on me. I spent the rest of the day in the hotel room icing the knee and it was tender on Friday but I got through the day. I never rented a wheelchair (maybe I should have but I guess I was too stubborn) My legs still hurt from the knees down but they are getting better each day. My toe is still swollen but with the cool weather we are getting here in jersey I think it will go down soon.

Princess question I am really a lover of villians but I do like Belle because she is brunette like me and we both like to read. I would also like to wear her blue jumper. I think the aline looks good on many people.

I'd have to say Sleeping Beauty's dress, the one the fairy's fight over being blue or pink. I'd like it in the blue, the nice seaming in the top with the open neck and then the swirly skirt would be great.


Kathy & Dona - I'm glad you both enjoyed your trips.

Good Morning All!!! Good luck with your last week!! I'm really looking forward to joining you all with the new fall challenge!!!!! Got up this morning and worked out and am working on 2nd bottle of water YAY!!!

Monday QOTD (Thanks, Lisa!): What Disney princess or "humanesque" (Peter Pan, not Pluto) character's clothes would suit you best?

Since I'm a teacher and often dress very conservatively at work I liked to think my wardrobe is most similar to Mary Poppings with the longer skirts and button up tops...although I do enjoy dressing up so that would make her chalk drawing park dress perfect!!!!! I also enjoy the colors red and blue...the only thing I wouldn't be so keen on are those shoes...no way I'm wearing heels all day teaching 10th graders Biology!
