I'm hoping to find some support here I'm the heaviest I have ever been by quite a bit. I have 50lbs that have to come off. I swore last new years eve that this is it, well one year later and I'm heavier ugh. Everyone seems great here and I'm ready to really commit to this. I'm a full time student, and run a small business. We have 5 great kids, 4 still living at home. I want the whole family to eat better. DH is totally on board and is going to be my get-to-the-gym motivator!

Hi Everybody -

I failed at the last Biggest Loser challenge and find myself entering 2013 at the heaviest I've been in a long time.

I had been out of work for quite a while and had a really hard time with establishing a routine and with mindless eating (being at home all day with 24/7 access to my kitchen, etc.). I started a new job at the end of the summer, so I am hoping that I can establish a good eating routine.

My goal for this month is 8lbs - I know that is a little ambitious, but I'm up for the challenge.

Looking forward to getting healthy with all of you.

- Laura

Happy new year! I love reading everyone's stories- so motivating! I think I will challenge myself to exercise EVERYDAY in January. Our weather here in the snowbelt is crappy in January so it's not an easy task but I really want to try! I shopped yesterday so the house is stocked with healthy foods, I'll be making a low cal vegan minestrone for lunch today. Good luck to all!

You have weight watchers, nutrisystem, Dr. Oz, paleo, south beach, atkins, my fitness pal, etc. There are no shortage of ways to help you lose weight. I am a big believer in failing to plan is planning to fail.

So removing exercise from the equation (we will talk about that tomorrow) what is your plan?

Be as specific as you feel comfortable. Some of your fellow participants might get some good ideas.
I am continuing WW. I had a lot of success trying to drop these last 15 pounds (10 now) with that plan. Buuuuuut, I have to follow it better. I haven't even tracked the last 3 weeks! But, I started again today and will be trying hard to eat better. I'm sure I will be showing Christmas cookie withdrawl symptoms any minute now!

I've read a bit of it but haven't yet started any of the activities. I'll be getting into those this time around too.
Thanks for posting that book. I'll be looking it up later!

What kind of a handicap can i get weight wise with full cast?!? LOL
Oh no! I hope your surgery goes well and you recover quickly!

QOTD December 31, 2012

1. What is your exercise plan for this month? Do you have long term goals? I read something that said that women over 40 need 60 minutes of cardio a day. Which is overwhelming. And who knows if it is even true. But I do believe we need some form of exercise to lose weight and to stay healthy.

2. When we find ourselves in that position of needing to lose (in my case, again) it is easy to be negative and get down on ourselves. To play the shoulda, woulda, coulda game and to call ourselves all kinds of not nice things.
Starting today and for the entire month of January, I want you to say something positive about yourself. I would prefer that it not be--I am a good wife, mom, sister, cousin, aunt, etc. You can say it in a post, or just say it in your head or write it down in a journal, but I want you to make a conscious effort to say something good every day for a month. And if all you got for that day is I am a good Mom, then that's good enough.


I hope whatever you have planned for today, that you have a happy, healthy safe New Year!

I am off to the gym to get in my last run for the year on the treadmill. It is cold today!
My exercise plan is to go to Zumba 1-2 times per week, circuit training class 1-2 days per week, yoga once, and to start running again. I guess I'll be hitting the dreaded treadmill for now. Me+snow+cold=no outside running.

Something positive~I am a pretty organized person. I love lists (as soon as I pm Rose, I will be making some) and it keeps my life at work and home running smoothly.

DH and I just decided yesterday to book a January trip (instead of our original June trip). We got the stay, play, dine offer and agreed to not do the table service plan. We want to just go with the flow and let the kids eat when ever and wherever they want. Last time we did ADRs, we were so full and we were hardly ever hungry at our ADR time. I am trying to be more flexible this trip. It's hard for a planner who has to leave in 24 days!!

2. Don't forget your positive about yourself for the day.



If you haven't had a chance yet, pm your starting weight and goal in the next day or so.

This is how it should look:

starting weight 150; goal 5 pounds

Maintainers: indicate your goal range (+/- 4 pounds) and how many weeks you would like to maintain along with your target weight.
Hello everyone! I am Jill and 36 years old. I'm married with DSs 9 & 6. I am a history and special education teacher in an alternative education facility. Something fun? I used to own a snake. When first DS was around 1, DH asked me to get rid of it because it was getting too big and he was worried DS would get the cage open and either let the snake loose or get bit. Now we just have a dog and cat.

Positive~I am just relaxing today and enjoying the last day of vacation with DSs and DH until our crazy schedule starts up again tomorrow. Typically, I would be out running around and stressing. I'm shooting for less stress in 2013.

Ok, probably not fun to most, but I love it!

I did 20 minutes on the treadmill today after a bit of a hiatus. Do any of you get that funny feeling in your throat when you run outside when it's cold? Um yeah, that happen to me a half a mile into it today and I was in my basement! Eesshhh.
Hi Kristin! I just wanted to mention that I am not too far from Cleveland. I'm in PA just over the border from Youngstown~probably and hour to and hour and fifteen minutes depending on where in Cleveland we are headed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy New Year! I am getting ready to send in my weight to Rose and it wasn't as bad as I thought is was going be. Whew!

I also need to change my countdown! Whoohoo! We were planning a June trip to wdw, but with DH graduating and probably get a new job in a new hospital, he was "concerned" that he wouldn't be able to go in June. So, we booked for Jan 25! Right now he works every weekend while going to school during the week. He graduates the 24th and took that weekend off. So, off we go. I have to inform my boss tomorrow. I'm sure he'll be fine with it, considering he knows that DH is in school and looking for new jobs. Plus, we are a small school and I don't really have a set contract. I get personal and sick time, so I'll be using that. DSs will miss 4 days of school. Their district has a policy for missing, but they don't care about elementary. I will email both teachers tomorrow as well. Now, this super planner has to get organized! After I pm Rose, I am off to make lists, check park hours & plan which parks we are doing which days.

I hope everyone is off to a good start already today! I'll check back tomorrow.

Jill

Hi! My name is Jana. I'm 42 years old and live by myself with a cat. I work as a Clinical Manager for a foster care agency in Illinois. I don't have any kids but have nieces and nephews who I love dearly!

My positive thing is that I am ending a very unhealthy relationship and avoiding using food as a coping skill!

Time for my official hello. I am going to lay in on the line, may be a bit longer, but it makes me feel more accountable.

I am a 46 year old SAHDM (stay at home disabled mom).

I am married to the most understanding wonderful man I know. We have been married almost 22 years. We have two children a daughter 20 and a son 17. Contrary to some, we actually have a great life and we don't try to take anything for granted. I usually try to not post too much about them, but it is hard since I love them all to pieces.

About my disability. I have been sick for around 15 years and have been on disability for around 10. In a period of a few years I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, lost my thyroid, had my gallbladder removed, was in a serious car accident that caused major injuries in my neck and lower back. I never really thought I was sick as I was but I finally broke down and cried when my disability (permanent) went through in less than 3 months and it was no questions asked. Only people who are dying usually get approved that quick. BAM! It hit me.

So over those years I have slowly settled into my diagnoses and became sedentary and fat. I can walk and do yoga, but for now not much more. As the weight crept on my ability to take care of the family declined.

My goal is to get back to my "healthy". Over this year I would like to lose the weight the doctor and I agreed was good for me.

I really look forward to being a part of this group and hope that I can be optimistic and helpful for everyone, including myself. Okay, I will shut up now! Diane.

QOTD--December 28, 2012
So since Jan 1 is still a few days off, I want you to start thinking about your goals.

Do you have a goal in mind for January, or even 2013? How did you come up with this goal? Is it based on pounds, inches, clothing size, or something else?

For the purpose of this challenge we are measuring pounds, so how does your goal fit in with the challenge?

Don't think so much about HOW you are going to achieve it yet, but think in terms of what is realistic and start breaking it down into smaller parts.

Share with the group what you would like about your goal.

Just a quick check in before I go to work--I would like to lose 10 pounds this month. I know-- a hefty goal but I really need to get back into my pants!

I'll get caught up later--this kind of took me off guard today-- I was expecting this Friday to be the start.

I don't do well in the cold air. I have to cover up my face or I cough and wheeze afterwards. It helps if you put something over your face so that the air you are breathing is warmer and not so dry. Great job on the exercise!

I am trying to get a lot of the things done today that I should have been doing all week-- finish laundry and clean house. I am taking down most of the Christmas decor but may wait until next weekend to take down the tree. It makes me very happy to see it all lit up and it is a very gray and dreary day here so it really looks pretty lighting up the family room.

Off to send my PM!
I made gf cinnamon rolls and they were so good! I think making a conscious decision to eat what you want is not a bad thing. Just jump back on the wagon!

I think we are leaving our tree up for awhile. We didn't do very many decorations this year, and I am enjoying the tree.

I would like to be down to a size 6. I would like it to be lower since I am only 5 feet tall but I want to succeed.

I know I will have to change my eating habits but with the help of WW and some other programs, I have learned alot about healthy eating over the past year. I will also be starting a realistic exercise goal of 5 times per week. I don't put minutes as I know I can work out for 15 minutes (if that is all I have time for) and I can get an intense workout with interval training method. I have a gym at work so no excuses. Just need to plan.

I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you!!

QOTD

HI I'm Jenny. I work a HR full time job M-F. I have 3 kids (DD senior in HS and DS 5th grader, my other son is an angel now). I have been dealing with a few medical issues for the last 6 months and am starting a new diet with eliminated foods.

Positive-I am excited for me! 2012 was rough with alot of change for my hubby and me. 2013 WILL be much more positive in general and I will work hard at maintaining a positive attitude. Here We Go!!!!

I ate okay last night. Everything was GF, but there was solid cross-contamination risk. I made GF champagne cupcakes. They were well-loved.

I'll be back later with some replies.

Do you have a goal in mind for January, or even 2013? How did you come up with this goal? Is it based on pounds, inches, clothing size, or something else?

For the purpose of this challenge we are measuring pounds, so how does your goal fit in with the challenge?

Don't think so much about HOW you are going to achieve it yet, but think in terms of what is realistic and start breaking it down into smaller parts.

Share with the group what you would like about your goal.

Just a quick check in before I go to work--I would like to lose 10 pounds this month. I know-- a hefty goal but I really need to get back into my pants!

I'll get caught up later--this kind of took me off guard today-- I was expecting this Friday to be the start.
Glad to have you Susan!

Hi,

I am a 53 year old too fat, married mom, non-profit worker.

My goal is to lose 10lbs this month, a lofty goal, but I am doing Atkins and on previous tries, the first month always seems to be a big drop.

I know it is cliche, but I am trying to change my perspective from being on a diet to changing my lifestyle. I had a wakeup call with several gastro surgeries last year, so, I need to get healthy.

I asked for and received a Fitbit One for Christmas and I LOVE it. So, along with my lb goal, I have also set a goal of 10,000 steps and 140 flights of stairs a week.

I use Sparkpeople on the computer and phone that links to my Fitbit.

Hoping with all these supports in place, I will finally achieve that healthy lifestyle I so crave.

1. We didn't do formal intros because I wanted to hit the ground running. Give us a quick intro and tell us something fun about yourself!

2. Don't forget your positive about yourself for the day.


Hi I'm Reenie. I'm 42 years old wife and mother of 3. I work full-time in benefits accounting. Something fun about me - I attended over 100 baseball games last year sometimes up to 3 in one day.

My positive for the day - I started tracking what I'm eating and exercised today.
