  1. Is there room for one more? I have a 1 year old who wears super hero onesies all the time.
  2. Been offline all week with traveling, so I've been jotting things down and am now finally getting a chance to arrange them! Firstly, a fuller version of my goals and the like: 1) Re-calibrate Diet - Variety Is the Spice of Life Plan: Through the course of the challenge, I will eat 10 new to me and healthful foods. I must eat at least one new food per week. Rationale: My true goal is weight loss, but body dysmorphia is preventing me from seeing weight loss despite smaller clothing sizes and measurements. So, I'm calibrating from a different direction: food quality and variety. This way I brea
  3. Woah, this challenge sneaked up on me. I'll elaborate and fill this in later (doing this from a mobile device while traveling). Thoughts so far for goals (will be prettied up and codified in the near future): 1) Some form of weight loss/diet goal. Working on a metric. Con/cha. 2) First four weeks of couch to 5k, weeks 3 and 4 repeated. Sta. 3) Dance classes. Because it's hilarious. Dex. Removed--timing just isn't right. 4) Conversation in a foreign language with a native speaker by challenge's end. Thinking French. Wis. Day 1) Diet was good today, being on the road limits workout though.

  5. Decided to give myself half credit for the diet, and partial credit for the compliments.
  6. I think the real problem isn't pants or measurements, but body dysmorphia. And while those suggestions would be helpful for most people, for me food journals are dangerous. If I lay out the food, I can't help but count calories (it's automatic knowledge) and once I have numbers I kinda go crazy to get them smaller. It's one of the slippery slopes that has caused some of the worst eating disorder relapses I've had in the past. The way I've been trying to get around it is by a clean diet of unmeasured portions of vegetables straight from local farm stands and lean meats, but too much dairy kept
  7. That's amazing! I'm so happy for you! And those pictures, it's amazing not just how much smaller you look but how much younger it makes you look. No reason to second guess putting them up--they're inspirational. Again, congrats on a very successful challenge, and I look forward to following your next challenge thread!
  8. RESULTS MAIN QUEST: Avoid that whole "Bound to a rock by son's entrails while a snake drips acid venom on forehead until escaping and starting Ragnarok" thing. I'm going to interpret this metaphor as "control and surmount self-damaging impulses so I don't end up tormented until I can no longer take it and cause the end of the world" RESULTS: Well, world hasn't ended yet, but that's not to say it won't soon. Still have a lot of work to do. 1) Pants Off Dance Off REDUX Drop one pants size Points: CON 2 (improved health from diet), CHA 2 (looking better) RESULTS: Started off very strong

  10. Thanks for the encouragement! I know what you mean, Montecristo, about the pants stuff, but I struggle to find any other measurable way to evaluate if (a) I'm staying on diet well enough and ( that the diet is working. I'll have to really think of it for next time... So, late updates (as I went on an internet-free trip for the past long weekend): Diet has been exceptionally clean the past few days, though I did fight (successfully!) the impulse to under-eat. Lifting was mixed up with some light climbing. I did pretty well on accepting compliments, for once. I'll do a compliment and the mil
  11. I agree on the same style pants thing, but haven't had luck with size selections in stores being in stock. I'll have to come up with a better way to judge this for next time. Diet) ridiculously clean, good hydration 100 Miles) 2, 86/100 Climbing) nope Compliment) I'm organized.
  12. Congrats on your numbers!!! You worked hard and earned them! Your glucose improvement is incredibly impressing, and the 15lbs lost is phenomenal! Now keep it up and finish strong; a final weight under 300 is completely doable for you!
  13. Diet) Decent for a holiday. 100 Miles) 1, 84/100. I am only 6 miles away from an A grade, 16 miles away from my goal. I have a hiking trip planned for this weekend, so here's hoping I hit 100... Climbing) Nope Compliment) I'm proactive. I also accepted compliments gracefully today; have been good about it the past few days. Ok, so going into the final stretch I'm very close to an A in miles, and reaching the full goal is do-able. Climbing was already completed. For the compliments, I think I missed only 1 day so I'm probably in A territory. The big problem is the diet goal. While I had some r
  14. Meant todo a bigger write up but got sucked into work and lost track of time. Diet) Even better than yesterday! Back on track! 100 Miles) 1.5, 83/100 Climbing) nope Compliment) I'm a good researcher.
