Janet I'm glad that you are back on track. Chris and I have had a setback since all the sickness hit our house. We will be getting back on track starting Monday. We want to wait until after Easter as we are having a big family dinner at Noon on Sunday.

Smile Can I join?

We have already planned a trip to Disney in January 2010. I want to lose 45 pounds before I go. I've lost it in the past but gained it right back. It would be nice having others as a support group.

What do you do to keep going???
Thanks!
Allison

Of course you can join. Welcome aboard.

What do I do to keep going?...I just look in the mirror and that tends to be motivation enough. I am also currently a life guard so having to be in a swimsuit on a daily basis in front of my entire community is also pretty good motivation.

Hi, all! I'm going to join you.

I have A LOT to lose, but I'm going to only worry about the first 22 lbs right now. I need to start slow and focus on making lifestyle changes instead of burning myself out and quickly reverting to my unhealthy ways.

Last week my goals were to start writing down everything that I ate, gain some control of my eating, and drink my water. I am using my old WW materials, so I'm also counting points. I have had a good week so far. I started last Tuesday, so I'll weigh in tomorrow.

This week's goals:
1. Continue with the food journals and stay within points
2. Continue water
3. Add 30 minutes of exercise/day (without worrying about intensity at this point)

I will check in on Tuesdays, so please feel free to PM me a kick in the pants if you see a Tuesday or two slip by without me posting.

Thanks for the support! I hope that I can give you support, too!

Beth

Smile Thank you for the warm welcome!!

Girl, if I looked in the mirror every day I'd just cry. :-)

I started today. I figured I would weigh once a week so I don't get discouraged.

Thanks a lot!!!

I know that feeling! You can do it! I've found that writing it all down makes me think before I eat something.

Thats a great idea. I think I'll keep a log for the first month.

Thanks!

I almost didn't weigh in this morning. I was debating waiting another week, since everything is going well, and I didn't want anything to discourage that.

I lost 6 pounds. I know that it's all water. I have a lot too lose, too, so I'll probably lose faster at the beginning. In any case, I'm really happy about that!

Thanks, Janet and Deb! I'm looking forward to another good day today! Eating right and getting a little exercise really does feel better.

I want to join too

I have major weight to lose too (over 100 pounds any way you look at it) but I am also breaking it down. I want to average 2 or 3 pounds a week. We are leaving for California in 10 weeks, which would be 20-30 pounds by then. I have already lost 25 pounds and I would be exstatic for 25 more.

I have been trying to cut down eating at my desk at work, which is my worst downfall. Nighttime eating can be bad for me too, especially after the kids go to sleep and there's no one to see the calories I'm packing away! I also am trying to do 30-45 minutes of exercise daily, usually a combination of walking the dog, treadmill and Wii Fit, which we just got over the weekend. Talk about accountability, at least to yourself! I am doing an official weigh in on Friday morning, but the Wii Fit tells you your weight and BMI every time you use it, and you are supposed to use it daily.

I look forward to giving and receiving support. It's nice to know there are others out there working the same as I am.

Welcome! I also have over 100 pounds to lose, but I'm putting my blinders on to that for now. As I said in my previous post, I'm doing it in small increments. My first goal is -22 pounds.

It sounds like you are off to a great start! If you ever need a little extra pep talk, come here or feel free to PM me.
