Tara, that is AWESOME!!! Congratulations on a 6.6 loss and passing the 50 pound mark. You may still have a long journey ahead of you but if you can lose 50 pounds then you can lose the rest.

Soooo, Kelli knows this already, but...even in being trapped at home because of Hurricane Sandy for a few days...I did it! I'm OVER the 50 lb. mark!!! I lost 6.6 this week for a total of 51.2!!! I AM SO EXCITED! Alas, there is still a long way to go, but I'm so thankful to have encouragement!

Thanks Tara!! I'm so proud of you too!! You have shown such determination! I know how hard it is to get back up after you've gotten off track. I regained more than 50 pounds that I had lost a few years ago and it took me until now to get back on track...so the fact that you did it after just a few months is a testament to your drive and determination. What you are doing is inspiring to me too. You're amazing progress as well as Angie's transformation; Jenn Kirk Lyon's accomplishment (going back to WW and losing over 30 pounds so far and working out like a fiend!) Mary Day Smelser, Annie LaDuca and Denise's amazing marathons...I feel like a slacker compared to all of you...lol...but it excites me to think I may have helped someone to feel better and get healthy. You are all helping me more than I can ever say and I love you all for it!! So...THANKS and let's keep it up!! Here's to getting to 50 and beyond!!

Hey everyone! It's been a long time that I've posted on here, so I thought I should update, too! I'm so thankful for what Kelli started because it got me going in March. She, along with other Chasers, like Denise and Angie, have been keeping me motivated. I, too, desired to lose 50 pounds before the cruise, but I only made it to 42.4-which I'm thrilled about. Since the cruise I've lost another 2.2, for a total of 44.6! I'm VERY happy even though I didn't make my goal. (I should also mention I fell off the diet/exercise track for about 10 weeks between March and now.) Anyway, v inspired by fellow Chasers and proud to be a MAC!!! ^__^ Keep it up Kelli! You're doing GREAT!

KEITH!!!

Of course I know who you are!! Not only did we become friends with you and your girlfriend but we actually met your lovely mom first. I'm so glad you found me on here! I'm also on Facebook, my user name is Kelli Frehmel Price. Feel free to friend me on there. We have a very active group of SNC Chasers in our area. We are called the "MACs" as in Mid-Atlantic Chasers. We all live within several hours of each other and we meet for lunch at least once every few months; sometimes more often. I met many Chasers from Texas so you may end up with an awesome subgroup also!

I can't wait to see your videos as you had a really amazing setup and I am a sucky photo/videographer...lol. My hubby usually does that job instead of me. I've already introduced him to you via my videos as you (the back of your head, actually) are in most of them....hahaha!! I told you I'm a terrible videographer....I wasn't kidding...lol. Please keep in touch; tell your mom and girlfriend (I can't remember her name but your mom is Martha, right?) that I send my best to them. Feel free to email too...my email is cruiserkelli@yahoo.com. Gotta get ready for work...yuck!! Have a great day!!! Kelli

For those of you who aren't following my progress on Facebook....here's the last pre-cruise weigh-in results....

Quest For The Cruise Update....okay peeps....this was my last weigh-in before the cruise (for those of you not going, we leave for Miami on Tuesday). I lost another pound for a total since January of 44 pounds!! Even though I didn't hit my goal to lose 50 pounds from January to July, I did achieve a few notable milestones...I am down 51.2 pounds from my highest weight (when I started Weight Watchers back in 2004) and I am officially out of the 300's....I now weigh in the 200's (but that's all your gettin' from me...lol...I'm sure you can figure it out.). I plan to NEVER see that number on the scale again and I'm going to work my tail off to make sure I continue on the downward track that I'm on now. Thanks for the support...my quest continues...now it's the Quest For Good Health! XOXOXO

Kelli, you should be so proud of yourself!! Keep it up. Use a small dessert sized plate to help as well. It helps make everything seem bigger and give you a better idea of portion control.

Thanks for all the support! Lost another pound this week for a total of 43.0. I have one more weigh-in before the cruise, on Thursday. I will post the results here...good or bad. That will be the number I take with me on the cruise. I had hoped to reach my 50 pound goal by now but sometimes you just have no control over how your body releases the weight. I can honestly say I've given it 100% without slacking off but my body didn't cooperate like it did when I was younger. Just because the cruise is here doesn't mean my quest is over. I'm just going to rename it and continue. I need to lose 200 pounds all together so this 43 is just the beginning. I'll keep ya'll posted and thanks again for all the support. I couldn't have come this far without it!!

Hi everyone!
Sorry for not posting here for a while...got in the habit of posting on Facebook instead. I apologize...but you haven't missed much. In a nutshell, the last 3 weigh-ins kinda sucked...lol...up until yesterday. I stayed the same then lost .6 and then gained .6; so for 3 weeks, I basically stayed the same. Hello, plateau! But this week, the scale gods were smiling down on me and I lost 3.6 for a total of 42!!!! I am only 8 pounds away from my Quest 50 pound goal...single digits...finally!!! I'm so excited to be able to see the guys at Longwood Gardens on Wednesday so I can tell them....SINGLE DIGITS!!!! Yippee!!!!

My Quest for the Cruise update....I have finally reached another milestone...I have lost 10% of my total body weight which earned me a special keychain at Weight Watchers!! Now I can put my 25 pound weight loss charm on my new keychain! I lost 1.2 pounds this week for a total (since January) of 34 pounds!! Slow and steady wins the race...lol!!! Best thing was, my mom made her 10% today too so we actually got to celebrate together!!

In other news...how are the rest of my Chaser family doing on your weight loss quests?? Fill me in...I know I've been keeping up with some of you on Facebook but if we're not keeping up on there; then please update me here....I'm hoping you're all progressing too...slow and steady equals healthy!!

OOPS - Meant to post this yesterday....For those of you who don't follow my Facebook updates; here is the update from yesterday....

This week I lost 4.2 pounds for a total of 31.6 since I started my "Quest for the Cruise" in January!! My total weight loss from my highest weight is 38.8. I'm only 18.4 from my quest goal and I am doing this!!

If you want to see my progress, please send me a friend request on Facebook....I'm Kelli Frehmel Price or cruiserkelli. I have posted a picture on my Facebook profile every time I lose 10 pounds so there are 3 progress photos in my "Quest for the Cruise" photo album. Of course, I'm wearing a most awesome SNC t-shirt that is a couple sizes too small....my goal is for it to fit perfectly by the cruise! Thanks for all the love and support!!!

Hi Kelli I just wanted to let you know that I am totally supporting your efforts. WW according to my research and experience is the best program for weight loss. Several years back I also lost a lot of weight on the program and was able to keep it off for a long time. Unfortunately, I too had some life changing issues which attributed to some weight gain. However, I still strongly recommend it to all my friends and family.

You also have a great goal:The Chaser Cruise. It sounds like a fabulous time. I don't much care for Carnival either but I hear its a great partying cruise line.

I know you can achieve your goals with your positive attitude. This fellow Chaser wishes you the very best. Go Girl!
I am still hoping I can convince my husband to book it.

Amy....I think you were sitting right next to us...lol. Looking at the stage, we were all the way on the right (my husband had the aisle seat) in the 3rd row. Were the people next to your husband tricked out in glow stuff and the women really loud (my mom and I just go nuts when we are at an SNC show...need to show the guys the love...lol)? If so, that was us! There were 4 of us though....my mom's hubby was probably the person sitting next to your hubby; then my mom, then me and my hubby on the aisle. Sorry you won't make this luncheon but there will be another. Will you be at Longwood Gardens in August? Maybe we'll meet there!

kelli, yes i was at reading. we probably didn't meet, because i just became a part of MAC after reading and really starting to get into the snc discussions and such. where were you sitting? after looking at your picture, i think you may have been near my husband and myself. we were on the right, 3rd row back, and there were 3 people to my husbands right and the remainder to my left.
unfortunately, i will not be able to attend the luncheon on 6/2. i work until noon in wyomissing and then i have a prior committment at the reading liederkranz (local german club), later that day and evening. kinda bummed, but hopefully we'll have another meeting/luncheon that i can attend before the concerts i'm attending in december, otherwise i guess i'll try to meet as many people as i can at the hershey and allentown late shows. i am plugging along, and i do try to switch it up, which is good, but still frustrating!! :) i'm always moving once i get home, i have a 4 year old. sometimes we play soccer, sometimes we walk, sometimes we dance, but we're always moving!!
thanks for the encouragement, and we will make our goals!

Thanks Gabriella!! I appreciate the support!

Amy!!! Were you at Reading??? How did we not meet? Are you going to be at the MAC luncheon on 6/2? If so, then we'll definitely get to chat! You're doing awesome too...I totally understand your struggle with the 45-50 pound plateau (I plateaued at 59.8 pounds a few years ago and never got to 60 or beyond...just started yo-yo-ing back and forth and then gained almost all of it back). Just keep plugging along...eventually, if you keep within your point target you should be able to break that plateau. Try switching stuff up...if you eat the same thing for breakfast everyday, do something different. If you walk everyday, try doing something different...like jumping rope, or walking up and down steps or even running for a few seconds and then walking and doing that a few times...anything to shake things up. You are right...we CAN do this!!

Okey-dokey....here is a much delayed update on my "Quest for the Cruise"...I have finally reached the 1/2 way mark. I am now down 26.2 pounds. I've been having a few rough weeks on the scale...losing each week but a fraction at a time (.2; .4; etc.)....very frustrating. This week, I finally lost a whole number, 1.4 (of course, it started with a 1...lol). I am staying the course and I'm just as focused and just as determined (although twice as frustrated...lol). I may not make my goal by the date I set but that is okay, because it really was a random date. When I set that date, I did not take into account the effect that being a peri-menopausal female would have on my efforts. I can honestly say that I have not cheated once; I've stayed on program at all times; I've tracked EVERYTHING and my losses are just so small. I know that slow and steady is the best way and once I get this 50 off...I will be okay with the fractional losses. I'm just very impatient because I set this goal and I want to reach it. I know when I did this before and wasn't as diligent the weight just fell off me...not the case now. I refuse to give up or slow down though...I will do this. I WILL make my goal before the cruise in October and hopefully by August, when I attend my next SNC show. Keep praying for me; I need all the positive vibes I can get! Love you all!!

Hey everyone! Weighed in early this week because I was going out of town yesterday, today and tomorrow. I am happy to report that I lost 2.6 pounds for a total since January of 23.8. My grand total (from my highest weight is 31.0). I am pleased with that number although of course, I was hoping for a little bit more so that I could have gotten to the halfway point of my goal of 50. I get to see the guys tonight in Reading (I am jumping out of my skin with excitement!!!) and I wanted to tell them I had lost 25 pound by now....oh well...I've ALMOST lost 25. LOL!! Well...hope to see lots of you tonight in Reading and tomorrow in Newark!!!! Til Thursday....stay safe and happy!!! Love to all....Kelli

Thank you all for your support and to Barb (BLB Red), please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your mom. I can't imagine what you are going through...my mom is my best friend...we do everything together. I did lose my dad when I was 20 years old so I know what it is like to lose a parent. I hope that you have lots of support and that you have faith which will help you cope with your loss and allow you to know that she is in a better place. Faith will also help you to believe that someday you will see her again.

I did have a small loss when I weighed in on Thursday...I went down .4 which is better than a gain. I'll take it...I did get my butt back on the treadmill Friday also. Got to get my head back in this game...my deadline is looming! Plus, I'll be seeing the guys this Friday night...it's my first concert since Thanksgiving weekend. I was hoping to be at least 1/2 way to my goal...I may fall a couple pounds short. We'll see...I have to weigh in a couple days early this week because I will be down the shore with my mom on Thursday after work and then we come home Friday morning and leave for Reading and an SNC weekend....can't wait!!! Reading on Friday night then Newark, NJ on Saturday night. So excited...then nothing (so far) until the end of August...not liking that there is no Atlantic City on the schedule this summer. We were really spoiled for the last 2 summers. Oh well...we'll see what else comes up that we can hopefully get to. Have a good week everyone...will post Wednesday with a weigh in update.

Sorry I haven't posted in a couple of weeks, it's been crazy - good and bad. Last week, weigh-in fell on my birthday. I was nervous about weighing in on my birthday after having lost 4.8 pounds the week before, I figured I was almost destined to gain. Surprisingly, I lost 1.8 pounds! My total was 22.0 since January.

On my birthday we got word that Ed's (my hubby) amazing grandmother was in the hospital in ICU. She had just turned 88 four days before my birthday. I'm glad we spent time with her on her birthday...it would be the last time we'd see her.

We had Easter with my family, I did the cooking so there were no surprises for me with my food intake. I ate in moderation and tracked everything as usual. I stayed on program on my birthday and Easter.

On Tuesday, we received the devastating news that grandmom had died...Ed was overwhelmed with grief...his grandmom was more like a mom to him. Then we found out it wasn't true...one of his cousins had posted on Facebook that her grandmother had died and we assumed she meant their grandmom but it was her husbands grandmom...what a crazy, emotional day for us but we were relieved it wasn't true.

Thursday morning, weigh-in day, our phone rang and we got the news that she had died around midnight on Wednesday. This time it was true. His sweet grandmom who always made me feel loved, was gone. Went to WW to weigh in and got more bad news, I was up 1.2 pounds. I was frustrated and disappointed. I have been working really hard and gaining was not an option...lol.

I have 14 weeks until my self-imposed goal date; I need to average a 2 pound per week loss to make my goal on time. My average weight loss right now is about 1.5 pounds per week...not good enough. I am going to push myself a little harder each week to try to make my goal. Wish me luck!

Today and tomorrow we say goodbye to our sweet grandmom. Life is short kids...don't take anyone for granted...tell them you love them whenever you can!!

Tara - 3 miles a day is a great plan - keep up the great work. Too bad you aren't closer, as I'd love to take you on a power walk on the trails behind my place. We have 2 ponds, which currently include nesting pairs of Great Horned Owls and Blue Herons. We also have some nice sun out here.

I'm within 4 lbs of my first goal (don't we all have a series of goals?), and hope to achieve the 2nd goal within a couple of months. I want to wear all the +tiny+ cute clothes in my closet. Rifling through the closet is as fun as going to the mall, and considerably cheaper, eh?

Looks like all of the walking has paid off. I lost another 4.2 pounds this week, bringing me to a total of 20.4 altogether. :) Have a GREAT week, everyone! :) My motto has been, "One Day At A Time!!!".

Kelli -

What a great goal you've chosen. Seeing everyone participating is so inspiring. Good luck to you and everyone to make your goals.

I'm working on a few pounds myself, through a combination of eating right (lean protein, greens, greek yogurt, and apples - lots of apples...), power walking every day, and Reformer classes twice a week. It seems to be working, as I was able to wear a cute summery dress to the concerts last week/end here in CO. I need to add the gym back into the mix too.

Congrats Kelli..... you are doing amazing and I know you will reach your goal and be able to book that cruise! My family is going to start getting more active now that the weather is improving. My bf and I both need to lose weight as well as my son needs to slim down a little bit. I have suggested to both of the men in my life that we should start doing some weekend hiking around the Baltimore area just to burn off some calories. They both seem up for it so we will just have to see how it goes. Unfortunetly, my finances are not at a point that affords me the opportunity to join a gym just yet so I have to look for the free workout opportunities and of course since I don't get home from work until after 5, I also have to look at the "safe" choices (i.e. Not going for a walk after dark). I am determined to lose some weight.... according to the charts, in order to be my "ideal" weight, I would need to lose around 100 lbs. I don't think I need to lose that much however, I would be perfectly happy with 75 lbs lost or even a little less as long as what is there is muscle and not fat.
Once again, congrats to you Kelli!!! Keep strong!

Unfortunetly, my finances are not at a point that affords me the opportunity to join a gym just yet so I have to look for the free workout opportunities and of course since I don't get home from work until after 5, I also have to look at the "safe" choices (i.e. Not going for a walk after dark). I am determined to lose some weight.... according to the charts, in order to be my "ideal" weight, I would need to lose around 100 lbs. I don't think I need to lose that much however, I would be perfectly happy with 75 lbs lost or even a little less as long as what is there is muscle and not fat.
Once again, congrats to you Kelli!!! Keep strong!

  • Kelli's Quest for the Cruise!!
    Hello fellow Chasers!
    As most of you know, I am not going on the Chaser Cruise and it sucks...considering I am "CruiserKelli" and all. There are several reasons that I gave as to why I'm not going...it's way too expensive; I don't fly, so getting to Miami is tough; I can't get the time off from work and I don't like Carnival cruise line. But the more time goes by and the more my SNC withdrawal kicks in...the more I want to go on the cruise....so I have come up with an idea to get the 2 things in life that I want more than anything...to go on Chaser Cruise 2012 and to get healthy.
    I figured out a way to use one thing (the cruise) to get the other thing (my health)...I'm writing to tell you of my Quest for the Cruise! For me, getting healthy means needing to lose 200 pounds...no small feat. So I have pledged to my family that I am going to lose 50 pounds by the end of July and WHEN I do (and not one day or one pound sooner), I am booking a cabin on the Chaser Cruise! I am using the end of July as my target because it's before final payment is due so I'm hoping there will still be space available and it gives me 29 weeks to do it (a healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds a week). I recommitted myself to Weight Watchers last week and I've already lost 2.2 pounds! I'm right on schedule! My hope is that once I add in the exercise that I will hit my 50 pound goal sooner than the end of July....because the sooner I hit it....the sooner I book it!! AND I WILL HIT THE 50 POUND GOAL AND I WILL BE ON THE CHASER CRUISE!!!! I even spoke to my boss about the time off already! 
    I am so excited and fired up! I've done really well on WW before, I lost 59.8 pounds a few years ago but had a few life altering things happen and I gained most of the weight back. I know that for me, I need something to shoot for; something important to have as a goal and right now, the cruise is that important to me and I know that it will be the catalyst to push me to be successful. So....I am going to post updates on here and on Facebook and stay accountable and I can't wait to see my SNC family on the cruise!!
    P.S. - Dear SNC....please come up with another awesome incentive for my next three 50 pound short term goal markers!!  I know with SNC, I can do ANYTHING!!!

    All the Best,
    cruiserkelli

Way to go Kelli and Tara!!

cruiserkelli's picture

Thanks Gabriella and Amy!! I appreciate the support more than I can say!! And my Quest continues...

Today's Quest After the Cruise Update: I lost 3 pounds this week for a total of 46.4 and I got my 45 pound star award!! Slow and steady...that is me!!!

amywolter's picture

kelli, you already know i'm proud of you!! i can't wait to see you in hershey, i'm so excited and i think i have my sister equally as excited!!! keep up the good work, and i am finally "back on track"

cruiserkelli's picture

Thanks WebCrew! Now I know it's official!! I'm honored to have been chosen...thanks again for the support and encouragement and the excitement of being Chaser of the Month!!

cruiserkelli's picture

Thanks Cheryle!! You look pretty amazing! I appreciate the support and encouragement....believe me, every kind word is so helpful. Can't wait to see you again!! Hopefully, before the next (maybe, almost, possibly) cruise...lol.

SNCMusic.com WebCrew's picture

So inspiring to see all your hard work pay off, Chasers! Congrats to all!

Also want to congratulate Kelli on being November's Chaser of the Month here on SNCMusic.com!!! :)

Cheryle's picture

I am soo proud of you Kelli!!! Keep up the great work! I lost 40 lbs myself and am still on the quest for another 25-30 lbs of loss!! You are beautiful!!! Keep on keepin' on, missy!!!

cruiserkelli's picture

Tara!!! I am so very proud of you (which you already know), but I wanted to give you a special shoutout here too!! Congrats my sweet friend and keep up the awesome work!!

CailinAingeal's picture

Tara, that is AWESOME!!! Congratulations on a 6.6 loss and passing the 50 pound mark. You may still have a long journey ahead of you but if you can lose 50 pounds then you can lose the rest.

Tara Marie Ahn's picture

Soooo, Kelli knows this already, but...even in being trapped at home because of Hurricane Sandy for a few days...I did it! I'm OVER the 50 lb. mark!!! I lost 6.6 this week for a total of 51.2!!! I AM SO EXCITED! Alas, there is still a long way to go, but I'm so thankful to have encouragement!

cruiserkelli's picture

Thanks Tara!! I'm so proud of you too!! You have shown such determination! I know how hard it is to get back up after you've gotten off track. I regained more than 50 pounds that I had lost a few years ago and it took me until now to get back on track...so the fact that you did it after just a few months is a testament to your drive and determination. What you are doing is inspiring to me too. You're amazing progress as well as Angie's transformation; Jenn Kirk Lyon's accomplishment (going back to WW and losing over 30 pounds so far and working out like a fiend!) Mary Day Smelser, Annie LaDuca and Denise's amazing marathons...I feel like a slacker compared to all of you...lol...but it excites me to think I may have helped someone to feel better and get healthy. You are all helping me more than I can ever say and I love you all for it!! So...THANKS and let's keep it up!! Here's to getting to 50 and beyond!!

Tara Marie Ahn's picture

Hey everyone! It's been a long time that I've posted on here, so I thought I should update, too! I'm so thankful for what Kelli started because it got me going in March. She, along with other Chasers, like Denise and Angie, have been keeping me motivated. I, too, desired to lose 50 pounds before the cruise, but I only made it to 42.4-which I'm thrilled about. Since the cruise I've lost another 2.2, for a total of 44.6! I'm VERY happy even though I didn't make my goal. (I should also mention I fell off the diet/exercise track for about 10 weeks between March and now.) Anyway, v inspired by fellow Chasers and proud to be a MAC!!! ^__^ Keep it up Kelli! You're doing GREAT!

cruiserkelli's picture

KEITH!!!

Of course I know who you are!! Not only did we become friends with you and your girlfriend but we actually met your lovely mom first. I'm so glad you found me on here! I'm also on Facebook, my user name is Kelli Frehmel Price. Feel free to friend me on there. We have a very active group of SNC Chasers in our area. We are called the "MACs" as in Mid-Atlantic Chasers. We all live within several hours of each other and we meet for lunch at least once every few months; sometimes more often. I met many Chasers from Texas so you may end up with an awesome subgroup also!

I can't wait to see your videos as you had a really amazing setup and I am a sucky photo/videographer...lol. My hubby usually does that job instead of me. I've already introduced him to you via my videos as you (the back of your head, actually) are in most of them....hahaha!! I told you I'm a terrible videographer....I wasn't kidding...lol. Please keep in touch; tell your mom and girlfriend (I can't remember her name but your mom is Martha, right?) that I send my best to them. Feel free to email too...my email is cruiserkelli@yahoo.com. Gotta get ready for work...yuck!! Have a great day!!! Kelli

Keith Chasin' Chaser's picture

Way to go Kelli and nice to see you again (profile pic). My girlfriend and I enjoyed meeting you. Thanks for the glow sticks at the concert!

I'm am proud to be a part of the SNC family, because that is truly what we are.
All of us sharing one love and interest...music and Straight No Chaser.
Feel free to email me and keep in touch, I have lots of pictures and video to share which is why I'm starting a Texas based SNC Fan Club...my new email is allaboutsnc@yahoo.com
Any other SNC family members feel free to drop me a line anytime to talk about the guys.

Lauren_8's picture

Kelli, congratulations!!! Keep at it. You should be so proud of yourself!!

maialyksU's picture

If there's a will there's a way! With SNC as inspiration,you can do anything you put your heart into. Congratulations on your success!!!

cruiserkelli's picture

For those of you who aren't following my progress on Facebook....here's the last pre-cruise weigh-in results....

Quest For The Cruise Update....okay peeps....this was my last weigh-in before the cruise (for those of you not going, we leave for Miami on Tuesday). I lost another pound for a total since January of 44 pounds!! Even though I didn't hit my goal to lose 50 pounds from January to July, I did achieve a few notable milestones...I am down 51.2 pounds from my highest weight (when I started Weight Watchers back in 2004) and I am officially out of the 300's....I now weigh in the 200's (but that's all your gettin' from me...lol...I'm sure you can figure it out.). I plan to NEVER see that number on the scale again and I'm going to work my tail off to make sure I continue on the downward track that I'm on now. Thanks for the support...my quest continues...now it's the Quest For Good Health! XOXOXO

Kelli, you should be so proud of yourself!! Keep it up. Use a small dessert sized plate to help as well. It helps make everything seem bigger and give you a better idea of portion control.

Thanks for all the support! Lost another pound this week for a total of 43.0. I have one more weigh-in before the cruise, on Thursday. I will post the results here...good or bad. That will be the number I take with me on the cruise. I had hoped to reach my 50 pound goal by now but sometimes you just have no control over how your body releases the weight. I can honestly say I've given it 100% without slacking off but my body didn't cooperate like it did when I was younger. Just because the cruise is here doesn't mean my quest is over. I'm just going to rename it and continue. I need to lose 200 pounds all together so this 43 is just the beginning. I'll keep ya'll posted and thanks again for all the support. I couldn't have come this far without it!!

Keep it going, Kelli!! I recently saw this quote in a book I'm studying and I thought it worth while, "It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference." - Bear Bryant. Keep it up! :D

Hi everyone!
Sorry for not posting here for a while...got in the habit of posting on Facebook instead. I apologize...but you haven't missed much. In a nutshell, the last 3 weigh-ins kinda sucked...lol...up until yesterday. I stayed the same then lost .6 and then gained .6; so for 3 weeks, I basically stayed the same. Hello, plateau! But this week, the scale gods were smiling down on me and I lost 3.6 for a total of 42!!!! I am only 8 pounds away from my Quest 50 pound goal...single digits...finally!!! I'm so excited to be able to see the guys at Longwood Gardens on Wednesday so I can tell them....SINGLE DIGITS!!!! Yippee!!!!

My Quest for the Cruise update....I have finally reached another milestone...I have lost 10% of my total body weight which earned me a special keychain at Weight Watchers!! Now I can put my 25 pound weight loss charm on my new keychain! I lost 1.2 pounds this week for a total (since January) of 34 pounds!! Slow and steady wins the race...lol!!! Best thing was, my mom made her 10% today too so we actually got to celebrate together!!

In other news...how are the rest of my Chaser family doing on your weight loss quests?? Fill me in...I know I've been keeping up with some of you on Facebook but if we're not keeping up on there; then please update me here....I'm hoping you're all progressing too...slow and steady equals healthy!!

OOPS - Meant to post this yesterday....For those of you who don't follow my Facebook updates; here is the update from yesterday....

This week I lost 4.2 pounds for a total of 31.6 since I started my "Quest for the Cruise" in January!! My total weight loss from my highest weight is 38.8. I'm only 18.4 from my quest goal and I am doing this!!

If you want to see my progress, please send me a friend request on Facebook....I'm Kelli Frehmel Price or cruiserkelli. I have posted a picture on my Facebook profile every time I lose 10 pounds so there are 3 progress photos in my "Quest for the Cruise" photo album. Of course, I'm wearing a most awesome SNC t-shirt that is a couple sizes too small....my goal is for it to fit perfectly by the cruise! Thanks for all the love and support!!!
