While I took a short cut last week just asking the participants to update their week in the comments section, I got positive feedback from several of the participants that they liked being able to reply to someone’s comment, that I am sticking with it.

As you may have seen on my post yesterday, I finally reached my 10% goal, and am down 17.4 pounds since March.  Slow and steady wins the race. šŸ˜€  I also found a bunch of shorts and pants that I haven’t worn in a couple years – one pair of size 12 shorts are even too big. šŸ˜€

Participant Jacky is part of a CSA and for Father’s Day made strawberry cheesecake in a jar – perfect for a picnic – they looked amazing Jacky!

I belonged to a CSA in 2009 – but for the first several weeks I mostly got kohlrabi, and what they called “carrot bites.”  Really?

Satu joined our challenge, and since she doesn’t use scales, has decided that a picture is worth a thousand words – check out her weight loss in pictures here.  I just think its cool that I have a particpant who lives in Finland! šŸ˜€

My sister is still going strong in the exercise department – day 20 in a row of moving – keep it up Jenn!

Lori was bummed this past week because she stayed within her points, exercised, etc., and was up .9.  I will be the first to say, you can’t expect the scale to say what you want on the day you want – just keep on going and you’ll reach your goal – no giving up!  Send her some pep talks as we come into the 4th of July weekend – she’s kind of worried about the long holiday and all the food!

So how did your week go?  Are you on plan?  Try any new summer recipes?

Let us know!  Enjoy your Sunday – we have another beautiful day!
