performance: losing 1.4 lb a week

I'm a faculty member at a university and I am fighting the weight battle. I lost 40 lbs on this site a couple of years ago, but then life and a PhD happened. I finally committed to buckling down and I'm hoping it pays off. My mantra:

In 4 weeks I'll see a difference.
In 8 weeks he'll see a difference.
In 12 weeks they'll all see a difference.

Portion Control Idea
I want a set of dishes my family can use every day for cereal/pasta/take out/ etc that has clearly marked labels for 1/2 cup, 1 cup, 2 cup, etc. so that we can make portion control a natural part of our life without having to take extra steps/dirty extra utensils, or guesstimate what a cup is. I couldn't find anything in a price range I found reasonable, (I really wanted a 'set' because having one or two bowls like this means they'd almost always be dirty in my sink because I never do dishes) so I submitted the idea for cost effective ones to quirky.

If enough people vote for them, they might make them, so if this seems like a useful product, would you mind voting? =D

Thanks so much! I'd really like to know what you guys think!

Hey guys,

I'm getting close to my goal weight, and I am starting to think about ways to celebrate the weekend I get there with my friends. I don't want to do anything food related, though. Does anyone have ideas?

For the Ladies: Sports Bras?
Target has surprisingly good sportsbras. Look for ones with a seam going across the cup.

Got really good news on Friday, and have new motivation to lose weight! Stalled on my diet and exercise, but I'm hopefully back on the wagon now.

Had a few days where I wasn't particularly careful about portions. I'm glad that I'm still under 160, and the gain is probably normal fluctuation, but ...
