performance: losing 4.2 lb a week

So here I am again, trying to lose weight. This time my goal is to tone up and lose 10lbs by the time I go to Nassau in January. I had previously lost 60lbs and reached my goal weight of 125 by taking up running and using Recently, though, I've managed to gain back 10lbs. I've been struggling to regain the healthy habits I adopted, but nonetheless, my goals are to become a better vegetarian and build my running endurance back up to comfortable 5 milers. I mainly follow a whole foods diet and eat in moderation (no carb restricting and no starvation for me).

Goal #1: Reach 130, previous goal weight. MET on February 1, 2010!
Goal #2: Reach 125, "ideal" BMI of 22.

Goal #1: Reach 135 and a normal BMI of 25. MET on July 22, 2008!

REmet on August 5
Goal #2: Reach 130, my college weight. MET on September 6, 2008!
Goal #3: Reach 125, my H.S. weight. MET on October 15, 2008!

Feeling FAT?
I always joke that I'm still a fat girl trapped in a skinny girl's bodySmile I think the thing that really helped me get a perspective on my body and my body image was delving a bit into the "fatosphere". Kate Harding especially has a great perspective-clarifying blog at and (warning: she likes her f-word).

AE Sports Active For The Wii
I'm loving EA Active and the 30 day challenge. It's really helped me trim both inches and pounds. I definitely recommend for indoor exercise when the weather isn't cooperatingSmile

I have a question for everyone.
I took up running/jogging even though I thought I could never be a runner. I lose weight faster, and I raise money for charity running 5k's.
