Who Are We and Why Are We Headed for Shamrock?

We met online in 2005 trying to--what else--lose weight. We've had our ups and downs along the way, but we're not where we want to be. This is our journey to get fit and healthy. We invite you to follow us as we "exercise" our way across the country--track our progress on the map to Shamrock below-- in an effort to each lose 50 pounds by the end of 2009 and adopt a healthier lifestyle along the road.

Where will we go once we reach our goals? The sky's the limit... but we're thinking Greece would be nice.

Weigh-in: Week 1

1.6 pounds? I refuse to be disappointed. And I have no reason or right to be.

First for the positive observations:
I tracked meals everyday
I increased my water intake
I didn't have many mindless munching moments

Room for improvement/Goals for this week:
Add more protein to breakfast
Exercise for a total of 8 hours or-- using our formula of 15 mins = one mile--32 miles. That would put me in about Redwood City by the end of the week.

1.6 pounds? For a first week, I expected a larger drop, but I'll take it.

I am awfully happy with this week's results. 3.2 pounds! Especially considering the stress I've been under lately, lack of sleep, and the demands of a high maintenance baby. Although the last two days have been B.L.T. days and I can't even remember what I ate to post it, I have made baby steps of improvement. No exercise the last two days, but it wasn't for a lack of trying.

Room for Improvement for Me:
Try harder to get the exercise in.
Plan ahead for meals, because I usually only have a few minutes to eat and I never know when that few minutes will come.
Make better food choices.

My next mini-goal is to make it under 215.
