Wanted to give my final report for the month on the plank a day. I didn't plank everyday, but I did remember most days. Plus at the beginning of the month I could only hold for 32 seconds. Today I held it for a full minute I'm going to try and keep up with it next month and even try to do another set. Bring it on, March!

I bet you can find some bargains from people who's good intentions have gone by the way side.

When I was a teen I had a little mini book I'd carry around with a calorie chart. I knew the amount of calories in Everything. Now-- I think I need to get re- acquainted.

Here's a link to a good one:

It's always good to refresh your memory on those calorie counts. Restaurant food is one that always surprises me -- I always think shouldn't it taste better for those kind of calories? And now I'm learning the WW point system. Luckily there are plenty of apps on your phone that can help. MyFitnessPal has a great database. myfitnesspal.com and it is free!

Thank you, Susan, for coaching this week for us!

I got it at my local Aldi. Not sure they'd be everywhere but might be a place to start if you really want one!

Congratulations you all made it through the whole challenge!

Please PM your final weigh in number to me today. I will be updating the colors tomorrow morning and after that Pamela will be hosting the March challenge. We have to have a final cutoff to ensure a smooth transition. If you are going to use your final February number as your first weigh in number simply include Pamela in the PM. As always those dates and numbers in the subject line help me -- i.e. "Weigh in 2/28 150"

It's been a pleasure being your hostess this month. Thank you to all of our coaches this month!
Weigh in sent!!! I made my goal!!!!!! Woohoo!!!!!

I made my goal weight. Now can I do it next month? That has me scared because I have not been below this weight in 5 yrs.

I am going to go for it though. However not sure if I should strive for a pound a week?

Hmmmm...what to do. Have to think on it.
Congrats on reaching your goal!!! I think a pound a week is perfect assuming you feel you still need to lose weight. 1 pound a week is my goal. However if you feel good where you are right now you could try to maintain for a month and see how that goes. Good luck next month no matter what you decide!

I haven't done the quiz you sent but I think I am pretty good. I can't give you exact numbers but I can give you a range that is usually right. Comes from starting to diet in the 2nd grade. So its kinda sad actually. If I eat something 'bad' I know exactly how many calories I am eating I just don't care.

Congrats on planking! I think I planked everyday. I may have forgotten a day or two but its pretty much a habit now.

Congrats to all who lost/maintained this month! I really enjoyed following along. I know I didn't post much but I subscribe to the thread and would usually read the email while at work and I wouldn't always get a chance to reply. Thanks for the support!!

Good luck next month!

Evening all! Ready to make the change to March? Then reserve your seat on the March challenge right now! Plenty of great seats still available!

First of all HUGE congrats to everyone who completed the plank-a-day challenge for March! I missed a few days mid-month....just plain old forgot! But overall I stuck with it. That being said, my neck pain/headaches have been worse this month and I suspect that planks may have been a contributing factor...so I am holding off on continuing the challenge into March.

If you participated and stuck with it, PM me your snail mail address for a PRIZE! (But be patient...it takes me forever to get to the P.O.)

I will just say up front that the March challenge will start slowly because of the busy robotics weekend. I don't know anything about spreadsheets and will have to wait til the first part of the week to get help from the family. But keep sending me your starting weights and goals for the month!

Cold and sore throat aren't great right now. I cut back my TM time because I felt like I was going to start wheezing and then I would end up coughing. I did 30 minutes on the track and then 20 minutes of incline work on the TM.

Would adore a cup of coffee or tea right now, but don't feel like going out to get one (I'm at the Y until 9:15). Oh well.

Belly feels really gross and bloated right now...not sure why. Felt like this for several days lately. Maybe too much fiber and /or too many beans?

Off to chill while I wait for DD....really tired tonight......P
