Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I know it has nothing to do with huskies BUT my husky did help me to achieve it! SmileSmile anyway i thought i'd share my victory with you guys since i'm very excited about going clothes shopping today and not getting depressed and hopeless throughout all of it! i have about 15 more lbs to lose before i'm at a healthy weight for my height and hope to get there by last week of july!

a terrible time in my life when i was my heaviest!


and these i took today while trying on clothes at old navy (i LOVE them)

Yeah WW is pretty expensive, but my new job is offering to pay for enrollment fee and most of the start up costs. I only have to pay $20 for the first three months and $16.99 every month after that. They also offer discounts on gyms but I think I am going to keep my exercise with my dogs. I'm afraid if I go work out at a gym, then I won't have enough in me to exercise the dogs. Very Happy

Congratulations!!

I've been trying to lose the 6 lbs holiday weight gain and if it's not someone visiting and wanting to eat out, I'm on a business trip where I have to eat out and take out my client.

In any case, I haven't been trying very hard, but since we adopted Storm and I'm responsible for his weight loss, I've lost 3 lbs....bonus!

Keep it up!! You look great!

Shannon, girl, you look AWESOME!!!! Congrats!!! I know it's hard to keep at it (especially the eating right!) so MAJOR YAYYYY FOR YOU!!! bounce I don't know if they offer cycling (spinning) at your gym, but if they do you should totally try it! It's pretty killer the first few weeks that you do it, but once you start gaining tolerance it's great. I lost 10lbs in a month by going 3 times a week! Not to mention it really tones yours legs!

my gym is so cheap they dont offer any types of classes all they have is weights, weight lifting equipment, treadmills, and other cardio machines. that's about it :\ but for $10 a month i can't complain! i wish i could afford a better gym but i have the outdoors at my footstep so i use that for free!

Wow, Shannon you look awesome! Great job girl and keep up the good work!

You and Jenn are my inspiration to work off some extra weight this summer. I keep thinking about it but it's not actually getting done. We need a weight loss thread to keep each other motivated and accountable!

My biggest question is your arms- is there anything you'd done specifically to lose weight there? Smile My arms are my biggest insecurity!

Woohoo the sub-forum's been added! Now I need to find out how much I weigh so that I can figure out what I need to lose.

I'd think that for the arms doing some toning in the arm muscles would work. Work those biceps and triceps with plenty of upper body exercise.

Cool I get to be the sexist pig, but yeah your looking good. tongue

Now back to the Husky thing, the biggest reason I started with Huskies was the reason that I had no excuses for not taking them out for daily exercise. When I get home from work Adobo & Biko give me enough time for my cup of coffee then bug the heck outta me until I finally put on the hiking boots and cut some tracks.
