    Felicia, I haven't seen you around the team page in a while, so I thought I'd check in with you. Are you doing ok? I hope everything is going fine.

    I'm on day 11 of a sinus infection, but I think it is finally starting to get a little better. I've done virtually no real exercise the past week or so. I'm hoping to get out a little today.

    Take care of yourself!

    first of all thank you for the spark.

    here is a challenge that seems just about right. i'm talking not too much and NOT too little, just right. it's called Lose 3 (lbs) pounds Per Week. That is the goal. the constant goal, all this year. eventually if you accomplish this you will goal. if i accomplish this, eventually i will also reach goal.

    It is a perfectly challenging healthy pace that is safe yet aggressive, because ya gotta work for it. If you can do it alchemically through food, great. If you can do it through some way of detox, great. If you actually build on fat burning muscle which adds weight at first but then melts fat away at turbo pace later, great.

    the goal is set. lose 3 lbs per week. that's the pace setter, that's the reminder, that's the goal and notion, that's the map, that's the course. all year long. today is sunday so i'm starting today.

    luv ya thanks for all your support

    What exactly do you use the food processor for? I am trying to imagine what I would do with it. Replace using a knife with veggies?

    im really struggling. i got a lot to lose and my exercise isn't much more than just working during the week, and maybe some rebounding here or there, and my food is all over the place. im having such a hard time of it. i can hardly believe i was once 240 lbs in tight 38 jeans. how did i get back to this point? it seems in 3 years i went backwards all over again. emotionally that is very tough. i could really use a hug. i realize i've had a crappy start this year, and if i want to be anything near ready or healthy around october for a trip to ny to do an event, that i've got to truly have some amazing next few months. i mean results, kickin butt, making great gains, building momentum, being far far happier and enjoying life more. like no less than 50lbs weight loss by then.

    i'm certain your paleo/primal still has you losing weight no matter the speed, moving in the right direction.

    i got really sick this weekend which made it easy to not eat and to only drink liquids, which made it easy to lose weight. i lost a lot fast and its affecting my blood pressure. im going back to work tomorrow, amidst yet another winter storm. somehow weighing less still finds a smile on the face. i don't feel great or chipper or back to myself just yet, i hope to really really REALLY soon, but for now it seems i got a boost/kick in the pants to lose weight this year too.
