Good for you! I'm following WW and I signed up for a St. Patty's Day 5K walk. We can do this!

Just wanted to say that I am now down 21 pounds overall, and I have way more energy.

went to the Doctor's yesterday.
I am down 15 lbs.
My blood pressure was in a better place 128/80.
I was having a difficult time with dehydrating because of sweating from exercising and having to take the water pill for BP. Didn't seem to matter how much I was replacing fluids. Doctor cut water pill dose in half, hope that helps.
I have 85 lbs left to lose.
Cruise is in 3 weeks. I have made a plan to exercise in the mornings. Limit myself to one soda a day. Choose a moderate breakfast and lunch. Use the stairs.
I have already scheduled an appointment with a fitness trainer for the week I get back so that I can get back in the swing of things.
Need to stay strong.

I've started working on getting better! I picked up Jeff Galloway's 5K running program app for my phone and am finishing up week 2. I have a baby goal of running any 5K at my current pace of SLOW and the W&D 5K at the Disney recommended maximum pace of 15 min/mile this year! I also have a someday goal of either the Princess or Tinkerbell Half Marathon, but baby steps first!

Good for you! Do you have trouble with that app? I thought about getting it, but read mixed reviews.

You can do it. With your great attitude you stay strong. But remember even if you do fall, just get back up and live a new day from that point forward.

I haven't had any issues with the app itself so far, just my body hating the regularity of it. I like that it tells you when to run and when to walk. I needed that, plus you can load your own music into the app and it will take the music and match it to the BPM you should be going on the runs.

I'm finally back. I had lost 20 pounds and was still needing to lose 20 pounds when we found out we were finally getting to adopt. So we brought home our bundle of joy in June. So unfortunately I have been lazy since last June(only as far as exercise goes, I have been quite busy otherwise) and gained 10 back so I now have 30 to lose but would be happy if I lost 20. The last time I had run was in October. I finally got out there last week and ran and now its cold again.
So my plan is to try to do step with my wii until it gets warmer next week and then its back to a running schedule. I've signed up for a couple of 5Ks and a 10K to make me have to do my running.

Congratulations on your adoption! Keep on working at it and you'll achieve your goals.

As of today I'm down 35 pounds in 7 months.

I am not new to wish totally. I have done a few of the monthly challenges and I'm over on the events/competition boards.

I saw this thread this morning and I could definitely use more support and encouragement. I weigh 201 right now and have always gotten stuck on the way to onederland. It seems like Mt. Everest separates me and the other side.

I currently work out 6-7 days a week and watch what I eat with fitness pal app. I walk or jog/walk, Zumba, aqua Zumba and do work specifically for your core.

Looking forward to being a part of this board.

Karen

It sounds like you are doing everything right. Don't give up! You will be in onederland before you know it.

Welcome!! You can totally get over the hump! I was just reading something about being sure to eat all your calories, so maybe that's an issue? Just a thought. You can do it!

PS Do you LOVE Kentucky? We hope to move there after we're done with school and I am so impatient!
