How does YOUR weight come off?
I weight myself every morning before breakfast & wear the same clothes & shoes. Sometimes the scales goes down, sometimes it's up. I know exactly what I ate because I keep the food diary, so I stay away from what I know brought the scale up. I leave on Monday for 3 days & it's going to kill me not to beable to log onto FS. I plan on jotting down what I eat though.

Can't stay motivated
nlfrancis-I have been there, too. What i did was get a partner. I have two, but they aren't on this site. One gal & I want to loose together & the looser gets a massage & manicure. With the other we just keep each up to date on the losses & keep encouraging each other. Try to find a running partner that will get you up & out of the house. I'm a morning person & have a gym a block away so I'm on the treadmill at 4:45am for an hour, then I walk with a gal at 7:30 for an hour. I keep thinking about what I looked like when I got married which was 3 sizes smaller than I am now & want to get back to that. I'm embarrassed that I let myself go. If you're use to working out & now your not that could be the reason for not sleeping. Your body gets use to a routine. You can do this. Remember the 10k in April & who will be there, friends, relatives, the media. Set your alarm tonight & get up & do your run. I believe in you.

Too Much Exercise
In Thurmans exercise routine you do the band exercise for upper body one day & lower body the next because your muscles need to cool down. Is this the same with using a treadmill, eliptical or stationary bike? The reason I ask is because I use the treadmill at 4:30am for an hour, but a friend doesn't want to go to the gym till 7:15am. Can I do the treadmill again or should I use the eliptical or bike?
