Not very active here right now, but we have 1 more week of basketball season with my daughter, and then I plan on being around here a lot more and more active with my dieting and exercising. Just trying to survive at this point, but still doing well with my diet.

Haven't been on a scale in a while, but today I wore a pair of capris that are a size smaller than I have been wearing (that I had outgrown and was not wearing)....They were a little snug still but they fit comfortably enough to wear them to work!

I broke down yesterday and joined a gym. I have several friends that have stared going before work at 530 am. When I was working out in the morning at home, this is the same time I was doing it , so it shouldn't be an issue. Hopefully, this weight will starting moving somewhere besides on me very shortly.

I so wish I could exercise in the mornings. I just don't have the discipline. I hate mornings. And I already get up at 5:30 just for work so I'd have to be up at like 4:30....I know that realistically, this is never going to happen! So I have to do evenings.

I'm down 5 pounds from where I started a month ago! I set that as my goal, but I didn't think it would actually happen. I'm using MFP, and the interesting thing is that apart from cutting out thoughtless snacking, I haven't changed much. We've been a bit more active as a family, going out for hikes on the weekend, but I'm impressed with how relatively effortless it's been. I'm definitely going to keep it up. Not looking to lose a whole lot more, but another 5 pounds next month would be great.

I'm down 3 kilos (around 6.6 pounds) in a little under 6 weeks. Going very slowly but not leaving for my trip until the end of December. So more time to go still!

Wow! That's a lot! Well done! I am finding that I need to be careful about exercise too. I have never had knee trouble before, but I've felt a few twinges in my left knee while doing my exercise DVD the last couple of mornings. I'm going to look up some knee strengthening exercises to see whether I can solve it myself. I hope I don't end up needing physio.

I'm stalled. After weighing in last week at about 3 lbs less than expected a week ago, I weigh exactly the same today. I hope that it is muscle gain (my knee is feeling better!), but it is discouraging. Especially since I got a call from my doctor's office yesterday with the results of my blood tests (that were done three weeks ago). My cholesterol is up. I have no idea how much, but I guess my genes and inactive lifestyle are catching up to me sooner than I thought. I hoped that I could become more active and lose some weight proactively, but it looks like it's now a must. Rather discouraging given that I'm not even overweight. My BMI is toward the higher end of normal, but not overweight.

I have an appointment with my doctor next week, and I'm hoping to have lost a bit more weight before I see her. I really want to do this for myself!

Hang in there! I was tested and had high cholesterol a few years ago, which was hilarious (and not) b/c I was a VEGAN and didn't EAT any cholesterol at all! I went back 1 year later and it was not high anymore. The ONLY thing I did was add exercise. I didn't lose weight at all or change my diet in any way, so I think that exercise can really help with those cholesterol levels! It's beyond me how I could have high cholesterol though, just glad I don't anymore.

As for the challenge, I'm at 27 pounds now!!!! I didn't really think I would lose 30 pounds before our trip (12 days left!!!!!) but here I am and I couldn't be more pleased! I still have more to lose, but I am so much more comfortable and really looking forward to enjoying our Anniversary trip!!

I'm down 8 pounds now! 30 pounds is too much for me to lose but 17ish would be nice.
I'm glad this thread is motivating people!

Congrats on the weight loss! That's awesome!

I've heard that genetics have a huge impact on cholesterol levels and there is heart disease all over both sides of my family. I hope that exercise and eating less will do it for me. I definitely want to give what I'm doing a good chance before considering anything else. I know that my doctor advocates a low carb diet for people struggling with weight, high blood pressure or diabetes. I don't know whether she'll suggest it to me, but I really want to avoid that if I can. There's no way the rest of the family would give up carbs, and I'm not prepared to make completely separate meals.

When I told my mom that my cholesterol was high and I didn't even eat anything with cholesterol in it, she told me that genetics played a roll...but I just wasn't willing to accept that. I'm glad I didn't, the exercise seemed to do the trick! As for LC, I've been down that road and although it does help people with blood sugar issues, it's just not for me. My dad lost quite a bit of weight and controlled his diabetes for a few years doing LC...but then he literally dropped dead, his heart just stopped, so I can't say that the LC helped with cholesterol. (sorry if that sounded harsh, he really did die fast and we were all relieved that his Alzheimers didn't progress anymore than it had and that he didn't suffer any pain...)

I agree. I have issues with any kind of diet that cuts out any major category of foods. It seems like you'd be robbing Peter to pay Paul so to speak. I'll be interested to see what my doc says. She's known to push the low carb and to have had patients see great success with it. There was actually an article about it in our local paper. It doesn't make any sense for high cholesterol as far as I'm concerned. I think I'm far better off with beans than with red meat from that perspective but beans are on the no no list for her version of the low carb diet. Anyway, I'm trucking along with MFP and Walk off the Pounds and we'll see what happens from there. My next weigh in is Wednesday, the same day as my doctor's appointment.
