I'll BRB with my answers as well as some replies.
I really don't watch my fat intake. I monitor my caloric intake. I probably should take a closer look at all of this.

I set my goal on Sept 12 to lose 30 lbs by our land and sea trip on Feb 10 and I DID IT!!
Onward to the May 10 goal, 22 more pounds!
Congrats! What a great feeling! Keep it up.

Hey Pam ... we knew where we were but didn't make it to the video. There were hundreds of people. But it was SO fun to be a part of the production.

*NOTE* Xanthun Gum thickens as it sits!!!!! I woke up this morning to a jar of pudding! Guess I added too much since it didn't seem to do anything when I put it in last night.

It was also a lumpy mess because I didn't use the blender, I just shook the jar vigorously. Threw it in the blender and added more almond milk, Truvia and vanilla. Still yech. It is closer but I think the problem now is not enough vanilla flavor and too much Truvia. I am okay with it in small amounts but for the amount I need for my coffee-- I like a little coffee to water down my cream and sugar! -- it just has the icky, nasty artificial sweetener taste. This is why I don't just switch to SF Flavored creamer.

So going to try a few more things. Need to play with the nutritional content if I use real sugar or maybe 1/2 sugar, 1/2 truvia. If I can get the fat down that will help a lot. I also have some Unsweetened Coconut Milk I may try experimenting with. I also wonder about using a French Vanilla Coffee Syrup to get that stronger vanilla flavor. But again, the SF probably will be too "artifical" tasting to me and the regular has too much sugar. And all these ingredients are expensive! So I may just have to give up coffee.

So in addition to my coffee failure I made eggs for breakfast but DD had used the last of MY local fresh eggs so I had to use store bought. I used a different pan because it was already out and they ended up sticking like crazy and overcooked quickly. I really don't care for the store bought eggs anyway so overcooked just isn't an option.

In summary, I am now drinking a cup of coffee with my regular International Delight coffee creamer and have had 2 slices of bacon for breakfast. Hopefully I burned enough calories trying to make everything that it will balance out!!
Okay ... I tried this over the weekend and had such high hopes. But it also turned out like pudding. I still put it in my coffee ... but it didn't cut it. If you find something that works ... please let me know.

I tend to struggle with this. When I am focusing on losing weight, I am much better at it. I need to find ways to sneak more into my diet.

BRB with replies.
This is an interesting question today. I think lately I have been focusing on the negative .... and need to refocus on the positive.

One day when my sister was visiting from England, we were watching my cousin's baby. He was 2. He had a spoon and started banging it on the wooden table. I said, "Don't hit the table." And my sister (who is a principal of a birth to age 4 school in England) said, we don't say it that way to children ... because all they hear is "hit the table". Instead say ... I like that you are mixing the milk with your spoon. That really made me think about how I phrase my words with my students and my children.

So, on that note .... my goal is "I am proud of the weight I lost this month and plan to lose another 4 pounds next month."

Be back in a few with replies and my own answer.
Mine is to start small. Just get out an walk for 30 minutes ... or just drink all me water for the day. It is hard when you are just not "feeling it". But starting small works for me.

This is awesome news.

I like the couch to 5k idea. Your body will really tell you when you are ready .... but you might be surprised how much better you feel if you get out a little. Perhaps just walk up and down your street ... it only takes a few minutes ... but it is something that can lead to bigger and better exercise habits. And your body will enjoy Disney a lot more when you are there.

I still struggle with this a lot. I always have fruit with breakfast, typically a banana or grapefruit. But now that I have my NINJA, I'm on a smoothie kick so I get about 3 servings of fruit in each smoothie.

Lunch and Dinner is where I focus on veggies. For lunch I prefer to snack on my veggies so I'll do carrots & hummus a lot. Then at dinner it's as easy as sautéing some zucchini & squash or throwing together a salad.

I try very hard to set my goals to be about what I can control. I don't have a goal of losing x number of pounds because I don't have any control over what the scale shows. But I can control what I eat and how often I exercise so those are where my goals are. I strive to exercise 4 times a week and stay on plan at least 5 days a week.

I don't have an answer for this one...I'm the one whose motivation isn't where it needs to be. So I'll be ready everyone else's answers.

Hi. Feeling pretty bloated...

Had the oatmeal again for b-fast, an orange and a hot chocolate for lunch, but dinner was a home made jambalaya thing...I had procured some jennio turkey sausages marked down, had some black beans at home and tomatoes. Thought I'd try out my new rice cooker and of course it took me a long time to figure it out even though it's really simple. So I didn't get started until pretty late, then it was too late to go work out. The rice cooker is completely awesome though-- it cooked 4 cups of rice in less than a 1/2 hour perfectly. but the thing I made was too good-- ate a lot. I put vegetable bouillon in the rice added the tomatoes (vine) to the sausages at the end of their cooking and mixed the whole thing together with a cajun seasoning.
I'm going to try to stay active tonight doing laundry, dishes etc. And I'll work out tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I'll stay full the rest of the night though...

Sorry that I have been away for so long... Weekend was very busy with social events. So not great for weight loss. I know that there are strategies on how to stay within in your limits and I try to not overeat. However, I still ate more than I should have. Some strategies did work, I told my friend who was hosting a brunch for her birthday that I am at the moment trying to lose weight and when she served the food, I could see that my plate had a smaller portion than the other plates.

I am also rather disappointed that my weight loss has more or less stalled despite tracking the food and exercising. I even gained a little bit back, so I am at the moment not at my January goal. I am still hoping that in the next two days the scale will once again jump downwards so that I can finish the January with my goal reached. I keep telling my that even if I don't reach my goal, I am still lighter than I was on January 1st. And I know that the only way to reach my goal is to just continue in February. So I am trying to be excited about starting a new month - and I am glad that I signed up for coaching in the second week as knowing that soon people will count on me does help me keeping focused.

So - for the last three days of January the plan is to stay on track and then start over with a lot of new motivation on February 1st!

That is wonderful news. Congratulations on being cancer free!! Definitely be patient with yourself, and not overdo it. Your body just fought the fight of it's life, and won, so treasure it. I know you will.

I started c25k a few years ago with the goal of a disney half marathon, and it is a great program. I weight 215 at the time, and ended up adding walk breaks when the run intervals got too long. A disney marathon is an amazing goal, and not to sound crazy, though I am a bit, but they just had the 20th anniversary, and a little disney nut in the back of my head is saying, I should do the 25th anniversary. I've got 5 years to train, right? Maybe I'll see you there.

I love this quote, and have been taking a deep breath a lot before answering my pubescent pre-teen when he's feeling emotional, so will try to remember to praise my answers in a more positive way. Congrats on your loss this month!! You can do it. It's not always easy, but so worth it. We all need our patience where weight loss is concerned.

I love your attitude!! The end of january is the time where the new years motivation can start to slide, and this group here is such an amazing source of support and inspiration.


Good morning everyone else!! Hello Pamela, Lisa, Rose, Buffy, CC, tracey and everyone else I've missed.

I haven't been here much, and am almost 1 month down with ww, but am at the point, where I can see things will get more challenging as my weight loss slows, and am going to try and post here more next month because I know how much better I can do when I am more a part of this group.

Try to remember how good it feels when you are losing the weight, or moving more and getting some exercise. Everyone has their ups and downs, and that is a part of life, but you can do what you want to do and reach your goals, so if you want to move more, just get out for a 5 min walk around the block, and if the scale is not moving but you have been on track, think about the non-scale victories you have achieved, maybe you can run a 5k, maybe you're not as short of breath climbing up a flight of stairs as you used to be, or maybe those pants are a little less tight. Falling off track is a part of all of our lives, and getting in back on track, and back in the proverbial wagon, no matter how many times you need to do that, is what will make the difference between those who succeed and those who don't. You can do this!! Believe in yourself and never, ever, give up!!

Gotta get the dog out in the snow. Yay! Thank you to everyone who posts here, I've been lurking and getting inspired and motivated by all your posts this month, and I hope you all are celebrating all your hard work and success this month.

Let's end this month strong!!!

YYYAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!

Being the queen of impatience, and always pushing myself when I know I should back off, I feel your pain. DO NOT let yourself get run down! Your whole body needs time to heal, especially your immune system. I absolutely agree with Rose, find yourself a great yoga instructor, tell her what you are trying to achieve with yoga, and don't even give a thought as to what everybody else in the class is doing. If you have difficulty with the poses, you can always modify or find a pose that's comfortable for you . I started a year ago and it's taken that long and then some, to be able to pull off some of the poses. There's still PLENTY I can't pull off yet, but I know with patience I will get there. And so will you!

Thanks. Sorry you are dealing with health issues too. It is so hard to want to do so much but have physical limitations. I think it makes weight loss more challenging. Hang in there!

Morning all! I'm out of the house on my I way to bible study, but wanted to pop in and say Hi!

Never made it back on last night to answer the QOTD, so I'm behind now! But the good news is that yesterday was a double workout day!

The free wifi here is working sporadically, so I am not going to take a lot of time chatting in case it doesn't post. I'll be on after lunch to answer the QOTD and chat a bit!

For today remember....."Start the way you intend to go on". If you intend to have a great OP day, then start it right with a healthy breakfast (and a workout if you can fit it right now). Pack your clothes for the gym if you are going later, pack a delicious healthy lunch, take your break time to take a short brisk walk or find a new healthy recipe to try. You CAN do this....you ARE worth it! ........P

Hurray for being cancer free! I am really glad you saw your doctor today. The c25k is a great idea. Overdoing it with walking and running definitely leads to injuries, but if you want more workouts you could also try yoga or some strength workouts. Working on strength, flexibility and your core gives your legs (and lungs) a break while still burning calories. (Though there is strength for your legs too.) Again Congrats on a good report!

****
Uggh I had one of those days. Hopefully I didn't blow it with my eating. I didn't track, but I think I am still in an ok range.

I hope everyone has a good night. Three more days in January. I'm going to try to make them count!
Thanks. I used to belong to a gym and used their equipment for strength training but now I am solely on my own at home. Any exercises you would suggest that I can do at home? I am more pear shaped so I am wanting to target stomach, butt and thighs but sadly the first place I always lose is the last place I want to, if you know what I mean. I have tried doing sit ups and push ups and such but I can't even manage one. That is how out of shape I am. :-(

Thanks. I would also like to do a disney marathon but wonder if I will be able too. I am working on keeping the doubt out and my new plan is to set smaller more manageable goals that will eventually lead me to the long term goals. This week it's just three days of couch to 5k which I am sure will kick my you know what. From there we will see. Gotta take it one day at a time.

I also have entirely to much negativity which I am working on. I think the negative self image really causes me to struggle more. I think the couch to 5k will be good for me too. I am a little worried I won't be able to complete day 1 today though. However, you are right. I need to go in and do as much as I can and keep doing it. I think I have spent so much time planning huge stuff and then I get mad at myself when I can't do it and its not working. Going to take each day and do something. If I walk more than run today that's ok. Thanks four your encouragement.

I started c25k a few years ago with the goal of a disney half marathon, and it is a great program. I weight 215 at the time, and ended up adding walk breaks when the run intervals got too long. A disney marathon is an amazing goal, and not to sound crazy, though I am a bit, but they just had the 20th anniversary, and a little disney nut in the back of my head is saying, I should do the 25th anniversary. I've got 5 years to train, right? Maybe I'll see you there.


Let's end this month strong!!!
Thanks. In my heart I know I just fought a huge battle but sometimes my brain tells me I haven't done anything for the last year but lay around and sleep. I think I am my own worst enemy at times. That being said this health issue has made me stop and look at myself. I want to be healthy and I want to be here for a long time to come. Being overweight can potentially kill me and cancer taught me one thing I am not ready to die. I fought cancer, can fight obesity too. I think 5 years is s great time frame for your marathon goal. Might have to set the same!

I absolutely agree with Rose, find yourself a great yoga instructor, tell her what you are trying to achieve with yoga, and don't even give a thought as to what everybody else in the class is doing. If you have difficulty with the poses, you can always modify or find a pose that's comfortable for you . I started a year ago and it's taken that long and then some, to be able to pull off some of the poses. There's still PLENTY I can't pull off yet, but I know with patience I will get there. And so will you!
Thanks. Impatience is a big one for me too. I have done yoga in the past at a health and wellness center. When we adopted our son from Russia he came with lots of anxiety and he was referred to a chiropractor whose wife ran the health and wellness so we did yoga and meditation for a year. Then his anxiety improved and we stopped. Might have to get back into it though. I know our local YMCA has classes. I have always feared their classes because it is so embarrassing how out of shape I am.

Never made it back on last night to answer the QOTD, so I'm behind now! But the good news is that yesterday was a double workout day!

The free wifi here is working sporadically, so I am not going to take a lot of time chatting in case it doesn't post. I'll be on after lunch to answer the QOTD and chat a bit!

For today remember....."Start the way you intend to go on". If you intend to have a great OP day, then start it right with a healthy breakfast (and a workout if you can fit it right now). Pack your clothes for the gym if you are going later, pack a delicious healthy lunch, take your break time to take a short brisk walk or find a new healthy recipe to try. You CAN do this....you ARE worth it! ........P
That's exactly what I needed to hear this morning. Going for my first couch to 5k now, wish me luck!

And sorry for all the posts, can't figure out how to quote multiple people on the iPad.
