I'm in!
We're checking in on August 28. I have a bit of weight to lose before then and would love a support thread.
I'm still about 39 pounds away from my goal, which sounds like a lot. But when I'm actually eating decently, it's not unreasonable. But honestly, I'll be pretty thrilled being down about 30 more before we go.

LHarper - the picture thing is a good point. We take so many pics at WDW. The sun is actually coming out today so I am going to take a walk with the kids and stay outside. I plan on walking to subway for lunch. The girls and I can split a $5 sub.

Off to go drink some water. I am TERRIBLE about that.

I need to get back on board with this, too. Since my initial post in this thread, I've actually gained 1.2 pounds... GRRRRRRRR!!!

So we didn't split a sub, I got one and they got one, but I skipped the cheese, the fatty sauce and loaded it with veggies. Yay for oven roasted chick breast, and a subway in walking distance.

Did some yard work and drank more water.

Does anyone here follow an exercise schedule? I know my usual zero minutes zero days is a week (ever since I quit dancing) is no good, just wondering what is a more "normal" goal.

MamaJessie, good choices on skipping the cheese and adding more veggies to your sub!

I don't have a set exercise routine or schedule. Though I probably should! I do try to get out and walk a few times a week. I was in the habit of dropping my kids off at school in the mornings and then going to a local park to walk the track. Now that school is out, I haven't been able to do that.

Yeah! we are going about a week before you...IM kinda annoyed I didnt lose the # I wanted before this trip..If I could take off 7 by Aug 18 I would be psyched. Glad there is someone else on my same time frame.

Maybe we can inspire one another...

Hello everyone! Let's see if we can get this thread going again. We're almost to Disney Time!

I've lost 5 pounds of my 15 pound goal. Considering we started this thread in March, that's 5 pounds in 4 months. Uh oh!

I know I WILL hit my goal, but I've got to step it up a notch over the next month by doing some of these: and less of these: .

Does anyone here follow an exercise schedule? I know my usual zero minutes zero days is a week (ever since I quit dancing) is no good, just wondering what is a more "normal" goal.
Looks like this is pretty old but I don't think it was answered... the canned response is at least 30 minutes of exercise every day at minimum but the more the better (without causing injury). It used to be 3x a week I think but they changed the guidelines as we as a nation became more sedentary and gained weight.

Start low, take it slow, and try not to work the same muscle group in a row - if you run one day, try to do something that works more upper body muscles the next day, or at least an exercise that doesn't target your calves as much.

Currently we are running 3x a week - two days of 30 minutes and then a distance run on the weekend ala Jeff Galloway in preparation for a half marathon. I SHOULD be doing my Jillian 30 day shred exercise video on the 'off' days but I haven't been very good about that part yet - the video tends to work my whole body so I've been worried about overdoing my legs (which feel like jelly after my runs sometimes!)

They say 30 is for people who just want health benefits, 60 for people who need more than that to see results, and 90 a day for people who need to lose a lot of weight and want to keep it off. You don't need to do it all at once in a day though, its cumulative (but that still seems like a lot!)

My boyfriend and I started a dated spreadsheet. We get to put an x for everyday that we exercise 30 minutes. I think we need to up it, because we've gotten pretty good at it..and he has bought some new gym clothes to keep at work, and has started walking 30 to 60 minutes during his lunch hour too!
We miss days like everyone else, but it feels good to mark it off, and to look back and see how many days in a row we made our goal!

How are you doing on the shred? I just started doing it again yesterday.

I love it! I normally do a level plus 2 circuits of another level just to make it 40 minutes. I switch days between that and the firm. How are you liking it?

I'm doing it the regular way, and doing it every day, including weekends. I missed last night, so I'm doubling up today... Once in the morning and again in the evening. I do 3 lb weights for the first 3 days of a level, then do 5 lb weights for days/workouts 4-7, then do 8 lbs for days 8-10.

I've done it before and am not as sore as last time. Maybe I'm more fit now than last time I did it?

I'm only on day 4, but I feel like my "muffin top" is smaller. Dh says I'm just imagining it. ???

I've noticed that too. The very first time I started the shred I couldn't move the next day I was so sore! This time around I'm having to work extra to feel sore.

I'm impressed by your weights! I usually don't use any for her because its so hard. When I do I use 5 pound weights.

The first week you usually lose a lot more weight then you will normally so I'm sure you're not just imagining it!! I love doing the shred, it makes me feel much better!
