So far, this hasn't been a good week for me and the B.E.A.C.H. challenge. I don't know why it is, but I can't motivate myself to watch the exercise DVD I bought. I don't know if I'm intimidated, don't want to look silly in front of my family or just a bum. I'm going to keep working at it and doing the 100 push up challenge at the same time.

Today is the first day that I've been able to wear my new jeans with the size 54 waistband. While that may seem high, I started my journey at a 60 and that means I'm down six inches in about 8 months!

In other amazing news, I got a memo today from my awesome employer. They're going to start covering 50% of our health insurance. I really appreciate it and this just makes them even more awesome.

Remember ban excuses! You're doing great! Look at your weight loss and your jean size, both are decreasing! I to thought I'd look silly (more like a cow!) exercising in the den in front of my family. I sucked it up, purchased a Wii and started working out last week. Suprise, the entire family is encouraging me and they are fighting over time with the Wii, but when I want to exercise it's like the Queen arrived and they all move aside and cheer me on. Hope you find this comment encouraging and you'll do as I did and as the Nike slogan says "just do it!". Have a great weekend.

Congratulations! Losing inches is my favorite part of the journey as weight flucuates daily....It's the true measure of success! As long as you are thinking about doing the DVD's you will get there. It's nice to hear about an employer increasing benefits rather than taking them away.

How can you say this hasn't been a good week? You've done an awesome job losing weight this first week of the BEACH CHallenge, you are sizzlin hot dude! You're wearing much smaller jeans now and you know that also means you are improving your health. Hey, also great job on the push-ups, I was just reading about all the benefits of push-ups and how it benefits your whole body...so Im going to increase the number I do per day. You are doing awesome, you kicked it into high gear this week and really did a great. Darn good week if you ask me!
