Weight Loss progress?
I've been tracking my weight on Livestrong.com (the easiest place to track, since it's on an app on my iPhone) since last November. I've been following NutriSystem®'s Flex plan - 5 days of their meals, 2 days regular foods - since April 4th.

According to Livestrong, I've lost 6.8 pounds since April 9th. But, my weight chart shows a history of up and down. The real test will be whether I stay on the diet and continue to see steady weight loss. I'd be happy with a pound a week, as long as it's consistent.

The foods are yummy, although some don't appeal to me as much as others.

I've downloaded an app for my iPhone called Couch to 5K, but I haven't started the exercise program yet. I've been pretty distracted by life this month.

What you've accomplished in the last month is awesome! The longer you keep it up, the easier it is make that your lifestyle.

Thanks for the encouragement. :)

Congrats on the weightloss :)

If you have any Couch to 5K questions, let me know! I've been running for 11 years, and running in races for almost 3 years. I also work in a women's athletic gear store; I'm pretty knowledgeable about all things running and gear-related. :) I'm so excited for you! You're the third person I know who's starting C25K. I have two recommendations right off the bat - get good running shoes (not cheapie cross-trainers or clearance rack shoes) and socks; also, a good sports bra is essential. Your body will thank you. :) Better to spend money up front than spend it over time with visits to the doctor! I can't wait to read about your progress!

Life™ keeps getting in the way, but when I do start the program, I'll be updating my progress in Facebook, since the app has a builtin Facebook interface. I haven't looked into whether there's a way to link facebook status updates to my LJ, like there is for Twitter. Hmmm....
