QUOTD:

My goals:
1) To get to my goal weight. My goal weight (for now) is 137. That is exactly 120 pounds from my high of 257 almost three years ago. I currently weigh 154 so I need to lose 17 more. After that, I'll reevaluate.

2) To work out at least two hours a day. I generally get up and run before my family gets up, walk with my husband when he wakes up, and then try to get in another walk or bike ride later in the day.

3) To continue to make vegetarian choices but try to make better ones. I love Morningstar products but rely on them too much.

4) To not get complacent. This is the lowest I've been since about my wedding day 20 years ago and I definitely am having to find new ways to motivate myself.

How I'll achieve those goals:
1) I plan to run a 5K once a month. I ran my first one last weekend and loved it! I actually have one more next weekend (as a favor to a friend) and then my husband, daughter, and I are all doing the Happy Haunted one during TOT weekend at the end of the month. The races keep me motivated to work out.

2) Checking in here. I joined the challenge, the exercise challenge, and the runner's thread after being absent for quite awhile.

I'm glad to see another vegetarian runner on here! Maybe we could share some menu/meal ideas and possibly some recipes. I never use any meat substitutes (but thinking maybe I should). I just never have tried them. I ear what my family eats, just without meat. My diet is way too carb heavy (cheese pizza, pasta). I rely too heavily, when dieting, on Lean Cuisines. Too much sodium. Because of running and working out (and for weight loss) I need more protein, but from WHERE? Thars my biggest concert right now.

Hey, I'm Carla Rae. I signed up for the summer session and I think I reported twice before I dropped out. My motivation was just shot. A friend of mine got into herbalife a few months back and lost 40 lbs over the summer (with only going to the gym twice a week!) So I figured I would give it a try. I am about 2 weeks into that program. Between monthly feminine issues and a severe allergic reaction to a swarm of mosquitos that put my on steroids for 2 weeks (still have a week to go ), I havent lost much. You always read about these types of weight-loss programs and see ads, but the fact that my friend looks soooo good, makes me believe that it is not just false advertising.
On other notes I am a c25k er. Today is W5D3 for me. Two more runs till the dreaded 20 minutes .

We are supposed to leave for WDW on thursday, but there are some work complications (we are both self employed) that might prevent that . We are passholders, so although disappointing, its not like we aren't going to go back. I had a dream about pin trading last night that woke me up though, so dh and I need to solve our issues so we can go!

I guess I will also give you my sob story. Christmas 2008, I finally made it to one-derland, my size 12s were getting loose and I bought a bikini and was happy with how I looked in it (for the first time ever). In jan of 2009, my company went out of business. Then in April my father-in-law wound up in the ICU. That started a rollarcoaster of multiple hospitals, heart surgery, brain surgery and dozens of tests. He got sicker and sicker and no specialist could tell us what was wrong. It was a very difficult period in our lives and I ate crap because of lack of time to make food and tons of stress. He died 18 months later on his birthday in 2010. We never did find out what happened to him. We got a respite for a few months and then my own father wound up in the ICU thanksgiving weekend. He had caught MRSA. He lost that fight Jan 9, 2011. The loss of both dads so close together sent me into a downward spiral and I gained 70 lbs! I got back on track early in 2012 and dropped 20 lbs pretty easily. After that I have been toying with an extra 10. I loose a few then gain it back over and over. It is driving me crazy!

So heres to a fresh start

Hi everyone! I'm Elle, I'm 27, and I live in Florida. I'm heading out to Disney World in just 20 days. Like some of my other fall Challenge mates, I'm running in the Tower of Terror 10 miler. This is my first race and has been a big motivator for me the past few months.

I started out at 175 pounds at the beginning of March. I started training very slowly then. I lost a few pounds that month and just kept going. Today I weighed in at 139.5 lbs.

For the fall challenge, my goal is to lose 9.5 pounds. That would take me all the way to goal. My modes of attack:

1. Diet. I've been eating a non-processed diet. I don't count calories, but every meal consists of a protein (fish) with veggies and fruits, nuts, etc. I cut out wheat and sugar completely. I don't even miss it. With those things out, weight has come off slowly and steadily. I still have a coffee with cream every morning, and no way I'm giving that up.

2. Exercise. In addition to my running schedule, I'm going to add some body weight resistance to the program on my non-running days. Push ups, sit ups, lunges and squats to begin. I've noticed that I still need to tone up. I also figure skate once or twice a week, but that's a very light calorie burning thing. But I'm certainly not quitting that. In fact, I want to stretch more regularly to get those advanced positions.

Some other things I've planned to tackle the dreaded "last ten pounds":

1. Brush and FLOSS teeth right after dinner every night. I am a late night snacker, but if I've put in the flossing effort then I won't want to ruin it. I've gotten on a health kick lately and with almost all sugar out of my diet now, I've been thinking about my poor teeth. So this will be a win-win for me, stopping the late night nibbles and better dental habits.

2. Keep hydrated. I am really bad at this. I am going to keep one of my running bottles filled with water or unsweetened ice tea with me at all times and drink from it. I think this will go a long way with both my fitness and weight.

I'm ready to start the challenge and I can't wait to track everyone's progress here. I hope it's a good motivator.

I'm excited to start another challenge! My fall goals are

1. I'd love to move into Onederland, but I think that would be a bit too ambitious (32 pounds), so my goal is to get as close as possible. 15-20 pounds would be thrilling

2. I'm diabetic, so good blood glucose control is even more important than weightloss. I want to having FBG levels below 100 consistently. For the past week, I have had some morning swings up to 103-107. I know what i need to do (no snacking after 8, light exercise after every meal, low carb counts) and just need to be consistent.

3. Find a new form of exercise that I enjoy!! Since May, I have been using our pool almost every day (weather permitting) In PA, outdoor pool time is rapidly coming to an end and nothing else is nearly as appealing. Hopefully, once the weather is actually cooler, I'll discover a greater enjoyment for walking and the elliptical. I may also take a water class at the Y, although that would only be once a week. New classes start Sept 24, so I'll make a decision soon!

4. Add in strength/resistance training. Again, since May, I've been using water weights in the pool and have seen fab results. I'm going to have to break down and purchase something to build muscle over the fall/winter/spring. Maybe a set of hand weights or some resistance bands. I'd love to purchase a home gym, but just don't have the room or the $ for a big purchase. I'd also prefer not to have to travel to a gym in order to work out on a regular basis, so joining the Y is out.

5. Continue to utiliza MyFitnessPal to track eating. If I bite it - write it If anyone else uses MFP, feel free to add me (KDIPIAZZ)

We all know a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth starts with a little trip right down Main Street USA.

How many times have you been on Main Street and seen some poor group of people standing right in the middle of the street staring at a map and trying to figure out where they are going to go. We Disboards big time planner types know that you can't get where you want to go without a great PLAN.

And those of you who have done the challenges before know that I can't coach without help from one of my favorite sites sparkpeople.com And this week is no exception.

Which brings me to the topic of goal setting. It's not enough to have a goal but you need a plan for how you are going to get there. Here is an excerpt from a sparkpeople article called Do's and Don'ts of Goal Setting:

Goal achievement, especially when it comes to health and fitness, can be a mystery. Most of us have no trouble with setting the goal. Setting a goal is the easy part, it's those other steps that can be a puzzle. But you CAN turn achieving your goals into a science with the right strategies. Here are a few of our favorites:

DO create a plan. DONíT wait for "someday" to roll around.

DO start small. DONíT focus on too many things at once.

DO write it down. DONíT forget to give yourself a deadline.

DO be specific. DONíT deal in absolutes.

DO leave room for failure. DONíT expect perfection.

DO track your progress. DONíT fool yourself into failure.

DO reward your success. DONíT beat yourself up over failure.

DO find a support system. DONíT try to do it alone.

DO make a commitment. DONíT ever forget that you can do it.

Here is a link to the whole article if you are interested. http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/...les.asp?id=124

QOTD Friday, September 7, 2012: So do you have a plan for how you are going to make your goals for the challenge? Share your plan and your goals big and small for this challenge.

Let's get this party started!
WOOHOO! On to the new challenge! I will be singing that Main Street USA song in my head all day! Anyhow....... My plan....hmmmm.... well, first of all, I PLAN to drop back into my maintenance range! I am a few pounds above it right now and not happy with that.

I PLAN to get back to regular exercise. I really let that lapse during the end of the summer (hence the reason I am above my maintenance range perhaps?? ).

Now to come up with a legit exercise plan/schedule. That will take a bit more time and thinking, but I will do it. And I need to plan something new. I am thinking of stopping my YMCA membership (since DD can drive herself to practice now, there is no need for me to make that trip every day). I will see how much money it will save me. If it isn't much, I won't cancel, but if it is a significant amount, I will probably do it. I have a good TM here at home, plenty of other exercise equipment (free weights, balls, even a small Nautilus type thing in the basement that NO ONE has ever used!), and I know what I need to do.

Anyhooooo... I also applied for a new job. It was an online application, so I'm not so sure how long I should expect to wait before hearing from them. I'll let you all know about it if/when I hear from them.

Laundry just finished spinning out, so time to get it out on the line while the sun is shining! Then I need to fold yesterday's laundry and get some cooking/baking done for the weekend. We will be away most of the weekend.... DD is doing her open water dives this weekend for her certification. I think we will all go tomorrow, but then on Sunday it will be just DD and I, as DS has a paintball tourney.

TTYL.......................P

Hi everybody. Been busy answering Pms and getting everybody logged in that I haven't been back on the thread in a few days. So I'll take some time to jump in now before i go put clothes out on the line. Then its back to answer a few MORE pms and update the posts that need updating. Whew

So time to tell about me:

I'm Maureen, your hostess for this go round I don't know how many of these I've done, but like some of you, the last couple I have not made it through the whole challenge just dropping off for 1 reason or another. Though I had a good excuse for the summer drop off. I was setting this challenge up

Anyway, over the past 8 years I have lost nearly 100lbs. My highest known weight was 296. I suspect I was actually over 300 at 1 point but who knows really. I knew I'd start trying to lose weight after I married just never realized I was so high. But mostly through exercise and eating less i have managed to lose some 90lbs of that. Right now i am at 211 and I'd like to lose a few more, but honestly healthy is my goal. Don't care about Onederland, or BMI, or whatever. They just make up stuff to make us feel better or worse about ourselves depending on what mood they're in.

The ONLY thing that matters is healthy, and how you feel. Things that are tangible. Decreasing your diabetes meds? Tangible BP meds Do your knees creak when you go up steps now? Lost 3 pants sizes lately? All tangible items we can see and feel. That's what I go for.

And I base it all on my knees seriously. If they start creaking after a normal work day then its time to lose more weight. True

And at some point I will share early pics of me. Thought I had em scanned in but i can't find them, so I'll have to scan in some again and hten post em.


Now for my goals:

To keep a reasonable workout schedule with an actual dvd in addition to walking the dog.

To get into menu planning so we don't fall into ruts mealwise like we often do in my house

To include more veggies into those meals.

My big obtainable goal is to complete the c25k program since I have never gotten this far (w5d3 run after work tonight). I am prone to knee and ankle injuries, so I am trying not to push myself too hard. My real goal is to get a 5k in under 30 minutes (with a future goal of a 5k in 24 minutes- that was a fitness test in high school (8 minute mile) that I could never do and it still bothers me that I couldn't). After that I would like to move on to a 10k program, but I am taking it one step at a time.

Goal 2- also very doable -is to get my wedding rings back on. I am about 15lbs away from the weight I was at when they got too tight and had to be taken off (that was over two years ago ). I love my husband dearly and I want to wear my rings! But I refuse to get them resized. I dont know how my body will lose all this weight, so I am hoping the fingers slim down fast, but maybe they will be the last to go!

PLAN

Exercise- I plan to follow c25k to its completion and ideally move on to a 10k training program after that. I will go to the gym every day after work (for the most part- barring any odd situation that arises). That is one of the joys of not having kids yet, I can go to the gym and not feel guilty or harried when I come home!

Meal planning- I decided to try herbalife for 2 months after a friend has done remarkably on it. I am about 2 weeks into the program, so 6 weeks to go. I find the flavors kinda icky, but I am not hungry at all between meals (that NEVER happens with me!). Some days I have to struggle to get in all my calories. I had to make a big fruit and yogurt smoothie at 10 pm one night since I noticed I was so low on calories that day! And I also notice I have lost my taste for sweets and junk. It is really kinda creepy!

Journaling- Keep up with fitness pal daily

Let's get this party started!
so my plan as stated yesterday was to lose 10 lbs in this challenge to get there I will :
keep my WW journal again and stay in my points range! I am good at tracking but bad at going above my points ..
I will also drink more water to get to 64 oz daily.
I also will stick with my Zumba class twice a week --- Tues = Zumba and Thurs = Zumba Gold (supposed to be a beginner/slower paced class but I pushed myself last night and wore my WW pedometer and it said I took 7007 steps!!!! and earned 4 extra points! -- so worth it) however zumba is over before the challege so I don't know what will happen then.. I'll be thinking of a plan.

And just a couple of notes for newcomers and people I have seen on the thread but not in my inbox. Officially joining means a PM in my box. Its easier for me to keep track of those than going through all the posts looking for new people, especially since this is the first time I am running it.

And weight posts go to Kollerbear

She is our weight keeper this time. And I have no clue how to do that

So if you sent me your weight you need to redirect it

Definitely. Please know that although I really strive to make vegetarian choices, I'm not a vegetarian. I eat some animal products - cheese and eggs specifically (and a little honey as well). I also very occasionally will eat tuna or crab (maybe once a month when we're out and I just don't think the veggie choices are good for me).

I worry about protein a lot. One thing I want to try is quinoa. I know that would be a great source of protein.

QOTD: I'd like to find my chin. I plan to drink chocolate milk instead of eating those dang Costco chocolate covered almonds when I want something sweet.

I'm Linda and I've done quite a few challlenges. I decided just to lurk the summer one. I'm going to try to be better this one! DH and I will celebrate 25 years in November and are going to Disneyland without kids!! I am so excited. He has never been and I haven't been in about 27 years. We've been to WDW 4 times.

DS1 goes off to college in 11 days and DS2 is a high school sophomore. I work as a substitute assistant for the school district. Somebody mentioned measurements and although I've only lost 20 pounds in these challenges I have lost almost that many inches and it is great! So do take the time to jot down your measurement from time to time.

Well the day started good; I lost a pound this week so I'm starting the challenge on the right foot. However, in getting lunch and heading home, I ended up with a really small fender bender. Which I don't deny was my fault; I wasn't looking when I backed up and I ended up putting a ding in the other driver's bumper about the size of a quarter. We decided not to end up calling the cops to make a report, she got my insurance info, we swapped numbers and she said she'd wash her car and see if she even wants to bother with it. So I'm hoping it all goes well. I mean, it was my fault so she has every right to do something about it, but I'm hoping that it's small enough to where she won't worry about it.

So needless to say, I'm a little stressed so the temptation is to stress-eat, but I'm not going to do it! Instead, I'm heading to the gym to burn off that stress! IT WON'T GET ME DOWN!!!

In the meantime, I'm starting to get my clothes figured for the Disney trip. We're actually going at the end of October to the beginning of November so we're hoping for some cooler weather. Plus I'm back to listening to theme park music to get me really excited! There's two awesome Youtube channels called 'DisneyParkAudio' and 'MrThemeParkAudios' who have all kind of music from not just Disney World and Disneyland but also from Disneyland Paris and Tokyo.

Here's the link to the pages if you want to check it out!

QOTD Friday, September 7, 2012: So do you have a plan for how you are going to make your goals for the challenge? Share your plan and your goals big and small for this challenge.

Well, my husband and I have purged the house of processed foods. We are trying to go low-carb by cutting out sweets, breads, cereals and pastas....my weaknesses!

I am also trying to get to the gym 4 days a week at the very least. I have been the past three mornings in a row, increasing my distance and speed each time! My ultimate goal is to run a 5K. Hopefully the WDW Marathon weekend 5K....we'll see about that though.
