My weight is creeping up - gain a lb., lose .8. I realize as I get older, there's less wiggle room for splurges. So my challenge to myself, starting today, is track everything, whether it's on plan or not.

Thank you!
So far...
I've started jogging (doing the Couch to 5K program, but repeating each week twice since I'm in pretty poor shape! I'm on my second rep of week 2 right now.)
I've given up Pepsi and chips -- my two total weaknesses.
Adding more vegetables to my diet, and cutting back on carbs.
More than anything I want to be healthier.

Thank you! Go team Wendy! It's kind of a Disney name too.
I love that you said as you get older there's less room for splurges. That hit me this year and I'm only 26. I used to tell myself that what I ate made no difference, but I realized I have to stop that train of thought because it's just not true any more!

Welcome, Wendy!

I have hit a blip... I am +1.0 this week. I have been up and down with the same pound for the past few weeks, but I am determined to get past this. I'm going to change up my eating a little, and make sure to get in a little different regimen of exercise. Hopefully this will help get things jump started again.

Hope you all have a great week!

The boards seem like they are really working well as of late so I will be posting more often.

I officially started month 3 of the jillian michaels body revolution program. I am doing it with a hybrid of turbofire.

I am going to weigh in fri or saturday I am hoping to hit my 15 pound goal on loseit.com within the next two weeks!!

Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

Congrats everyone, lots of inspirational stories on here lately! Welcome Wendy and Hi WInkers!!!!!

I am having trouble getting motivated. I just can't seem to get going. I am thinking of weight watchers. I've done it in the past and had successful starts, but then I get complacent. For some reason it seems that our leaders here just do not inspire me, but it has been a few years so I am thinking about trying again in the hopes that perhaps we have some new inspirational leaders at our site!

Danielle ~ how do you like the personal trainer?

Brandi ~ How is the walking going?

I know it's so hard to get motivated. I just try to take it day by day. All i try to do is get through one day at at time. Like I tell myself all I have to do is workout today. I dont think about tomorrow or a week from now just focus on the day at hand. I have a calendar I keep in my closet. and each day I put my workouts on it and a smiley face if I ate well for the day. I did weight watchers back in 2008 and had success with it but I prefer counting calories better and using websites such as lose it/myfitness pal etc I find it much easier to count calories than points but that is just a personal preference. My mom is a lifetime ww member I think you have to find what works best for you and go with it.

PD - We were out of town last weekend, so I'm waiting until next weekend to contact the trainer. They were supposed to call me, but haven't, so I guess I'm just putting it off until I get to the gym again.
We went to a concert Sunday night (Elvis Costello) and got home after midnight. My is dragging, but I did get on the bike tonight.
