QOTD Jan 1 - I'm Liz, I'm 40, and I'm a maintainer at long last. I have struggled with my weight since I was in middle school, and I made lifetime with WW back in 2000. Then I had my beautiful girls and had a hard time with big weight gains in both pregnancies. Back to WW, and I got all but the last 20+ off. This time last year, I'd had enough, and I joined my first BL challenge. That, coupled with a doubled-down effort at WW, and I got back to my pre-kids, wedding weight. It felt *amazing.*

In the course of all that, I got a wild hair and decided to start running - something I'd never done and never imagined I would do. I started with a Couch to 5K app on my iPhone. I got a few weeks in and then cracked a toe badly (not while running, just a klutzy move). I was sidelined for 2 months with that and dove back into the C25K in late May. I ran the ToT 10-miler at the end of September and am now a week and a half away from my first half marathon, the WDW Half! I'm signed up for another half in April and have two more on my radar for 2013. Sometimes I can't quite believe this is me now.

December was rough for me, maintenance-wise, and I'm sitting at the top of my maintenance range. So my goal for this month is to work off those extra few pounds I've been carrying these past few weeks and get solidly back to goal again. And, oh yes, complete that half marathon.

Positive: I am a very organized person with a talent for organizing spaces and stuff.


QOTD Jan 2 - I know I shouldn't. I really do know that. But I pop on every morning. It's habit more than obsession, and I guess I find the fluctuations interesting relative to how I'm feeling (bloated, etc.).

Positive: I'm a great mommy. I'm not the perfect mommy, but I love those girls like nobody's business, and they know it.

Happy 2013, everyone! Let's rock this thing.
XO
Liz
My name is also Liz, and I ran the ToT 10 miler too! I love running... it gives me more excuses to go to disney

I ran a triathon two years ago and didn't finish last so I think this is totally doable for me.
Food goals are to eat heathy, whole foods as unprocessed as possible
Excersize goal to be active thirty minutes a day doing something not involved with work

My positive for the day is that I'm smaller then I was last year.
I hope to have the same positive next year

My positive thought is I finally feel very motivated to finally do something about my weight - it's a different feeling this time around.
Motivation is the hardest part, it's so movitvating to be surrounded by motivated people

Fun Fact: I just came back from WDW today!! A last-minute trip to FL to support our alma mater (we lost ) then hit the parks for two crazy crowded but fun days

Good luck everyone!

ETA: My other goal is to resume regular MFP tracking!
MFP is amazing!

And my baby is turning 13 in 10 days.

Now, my husband is not a Disney fan ... however, we are having a contest to see who can lose the most weight and maintain it my June 1st. If I win .... he agreed to go to Disney and not complain! So help me out my Disney friends.

Positive: My reading kids have been doing great this year. Keeping me fingers crossed they practiced a bit over break.

Off to get ready for work tomorrow. Have a great day tomorrow everyone!

My husband is also not a Disney fan, and doesn't understand the need that I have to go regularly. A disney trip is wonderful motivation!

QOTD:

My name is Stephanie, and I'm a 36 year old teacher. I have two little boys and a wonderful husband. I am at the heaviest I have ever been with about 15-20 lbs to lose. I'm scared because my weight keeps climbing, and with hypothyroidism, the weight comes off sloooowly. I am definitely an emotional eater, so I will be working on that.

One positive for today is that I'm done with excuses. Even if I don't drop a single pound, I WILL be healthier.

Sent from my iPad using DISBoards
Yay for being healthier! I'm still working on getting the excuses out of my head.. but I will go to spinning tonight

My long term goal is to lose 50 more lbs. My goal for Jan is 5 lbs.

Something positive? I got on the treadmill and ran for the first time today since the beginning of Nov! It felt amazing. I was huffing and puffing but I did it. My next 5K is March 17 so the pressure is on.
I give you props for getting on the treadmill. I avoid it like the plague. I ran outside yesterday in 27 degree weather- that's how much I hate the treadmill.

I am hoping to take some of the weight off before our annual Mother/Daughter Disney trip in May, for the sake of my bum knees.
Fun Fact- I am a full time Barista (professional espresso/ coffee maker). I LOVE all things coffee, and I love my job! 13 years, and I still look forward to going to work every day!
Positive thought- I have a good sense of humor and I'm quick to make those around me laugh.
I also gained A LOT of weight while pregnant (70lbs). I lost half of it, and then I gained it back. And I'm not pregnant But I will lose it this year

I have an incredible husband, and two great kids. My DS is a senior in high school so we're in the "college-applications-are-in-now-what?" season.
I do better in a social setting so a friend of mine and I have decided to support each other with the same eercise goals:
Run 1000 miles
10,000 push ups
10,000 sit ups (not as scary as itr sounds - only 23 a day of each !) I'll post how I'm doing ....
Rose - I really like your idea of at least 1 mile a day!!

I like to exercise - but need to work on my nutrition. My goal is 5 pounds a month, and want to complete at least 10 months. But I'm ready to take it one day at a time...

Happy New Year everyone!
Jude
the pushups sound scarier to me than the situps... those are wonderful goals!

For January, I want to lose ONE pound. This means that I will have to maintain through the trip to Disney and cruise on the Dream, which will limit my exercise since I will be using an ECV. Just to maintain would be awesome, but I can fix damage from mid-month on.

Thank you sooooooooooooooo much for doing this. I know it will help me and will help me keep goals realistic.
maintaining is a good goal with disney involved... I am terrifed that I will gain oat the World/on the dream. When are you going? We will be there Jan 20-24th, then getting on the dream until the 27th

We live in Florida, just 2.5 hours away from the Magic Kingdom. We have lived here 10 months now and have managed three trips there so far. I am hoping to get many more this year. OK at least 5 trips this year with our seasonal passes. That would be my fun fact about me. For my positive, I have been good today. My goal is to do 10,000 minutes of exercise this year. Sounds like a lot, but when you break it down it is only 23 minutes a day. So I did 30 minutes today. And that is with no sleep since I worked last night. I also did laundry, made some bread, and got my black eyed peas and greens for good luck So for a first day of the New Year I think I am doing pretty well.
Good job on the exercise! 30 mins a day is totally doable

QOTD Wednesday, January 2, 2013

How often do you weigh/ get on the scale?

And you know it's coming--say something positive about yourself.
I definitely have to check in to this thread more than once a day or I will never get to respond to anybody

Here's my QOTD:

I weigh myself every morning. I know it's a bad habit to break, but I only track it on Monday mornings, and then I get my downward trend.

My postive for today is that it's Wednesday, and that means there are only 2 work days left after today

I have nothing to do at work today, so I finally have time to answer the questions:

Jan. 1 - Introduction
My name is Sachi, I'm 24, I live in TX and I just graduated from college. I'm getting married in May.
Positive: I'm very organized. I like to write lists. I like to shop for storage. I'm trying to finally organize my apartment. I let it become chaos while I was in school.

Jan. 2
I don't like to weigh myself very often. Usually once a month. So weighing myself every few days is going to be different. I used to say that I would weigh myself every Monday morning before eating breakfast, but then I'd forget.
Positive: I'm smart. I can say this now because I have degrees to back up the claim.

I ran/walked my own 5k yesterday morning to start the new year off right. I slept in this morning to give myself time to recover. Running in the cold and the wind was hard and it gave me that burning feeling in my throat. I think I'm going to have to start using the indoor track at the school if I want to start running farther and with no walking.

Intro: My name is Shannon (but everyone calls me Elyse on here because of my username, that's my middle name). I am a long-time Britney Spears fan (I know right, it's like totally embarrassing to admit that!) so that explains my icon! People also tell me I look like her too (especially when I go blonde with my hair).

I'm 28... not married. High school English teacher in a rural school district. Oh and I live in OH-IO!

I'm going to Disney in June to celebrate my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. My dad is also retiring this year so it's such an amazing celebration of life in general!

Part of my weight loss goal is getting prepared for that trip. I went in June in 2012 and I was too heavy. It's one of those things where you look at your picture and cringe. I had a wonderful trip, but I want this next one to be even better!

Need a little inspiration?

If you need a boost, something to make you feel inspired for 2013, here's a video from the beauty-blogger Kandee Johnson. She talks about how bad things in life can be used to lift you up!

http://youtu.be/1gR4hHRaTHE

She is an inspiration to me (taught me how to do make-up and in the process taught me to love myself).

Just wanted to share!

I always try to start the BL challenge with a Quote. Honestly I try to do it every day, but some days I fail. I hope to keep this up for these challenges.

This is the one we all seem to like as the lead in Quote so if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?!

QOTD Jan 1st: My name is Jessica and I am 28 years old. Married to my DH for 3 years, no kids. I currently work at a bank and my husband is a full time student. I am looking to lose the weight once and for all so I think that this new monthly format is going to be really great.

QOTD Jan 2nd: When we lived in our apartment I used to weigh myself every morning, but now that we are living with my in-laws I try to weigh myself once a week. I hate the scale that they have though because it is one of those that spins to the number, kind of like a doctors office, and I have always had digital scales. I am joining WW on Saturday so I may try to just use that scale as my only weigh in.

You have weight watchers, nutrisystem, Dr. Oz, paleo, south beach, atkins, my fitness pal, etc. There are no shortage of ways to help you lose weight. I am a big believer in failing to plan is planning to fail.

So removing exercise from the equation (we will talk about that tomorrow) what is your plan?

Be as specific as you feel comfortable. Some of your fellow participants might get some good ideas.
I need to just start eating about a quarter less food than I do now....portion control I guess. More filling stuff like veggies and fruit. I need to clean the fridges badly, that'll help with leftover control-- right now it's just a scary place where food gets lost. I used to listen to live 365 on the computer when I did these things but now I'm not getting it-- it's really choppy anyway. Anyone know some decent radio websites with maybe a disney channel or 2. I really liked the park music one. I have to get back on my fitness pal.

1. We didn't do formal intros because I wanted to hit the ground running. Give us a quick intro and tell us something fun about yourself!

2. Don't forget your positive about yourself for the day.

I'm Susan--I live in Oregon, I have a lot of cats, 2 grown kids and a husband over 20 years. I work at a grocery store, I'm about as liberal as you get--a fun fact about me is I've taken up skateboarding after about a 30 year hiatus lol. I lost 50 pounds a few years ago and have now gained about 25 pounds back-- I am in pretty good shape, I've been lifting weights a lot more in the last year. I just need more in my life that's fun that overpowers the fun of eating. I'm a big foodie. I've been extremely depressed and suicidal the last few years but am doing much better now with that. I just want to get back comfortably in my pants right now....

Yay I'm finally caught up-- I hate doing that it is pretty confusing with all the quotes....I really want to stay caught up this time--that's another goal for me. Have a great day-- it looks like we have some sunshine here that intends to stick around.

Blech! Nasty snow storm tonight, it took more than twice as long to get home super stressful drive. So no yoga for me tonight, I miss yoga, it's been a week. I never thought I would say I miss yoga- I think that's a good sign
Have a great night!

I'm back!! I'm Karen and struggled with my weight most of my life. I'm married w/ 2 boys 7 and 10. I was doing well last year and really making exercise a habit but starting in Aug/Sept I developed plantars warts on my feet yuck. Tried self treating and they got worse then had to go to the doctor and that was horrible but they are healing now. It effected my ability to walk normally they were so painful so workouts have been pretty non-existant since September and I've been sort of depressed about it. I missed it so much.

I've put on 10 pounds since Sept that's nuts!!!! I about passed out when I saw that.

My goal this month is 5 pounds. I figured I gained so much hopefully it will come off quick .

Gosh something positive is a hard thing for me - something I need to work on. At least today does not help since its my TOM and I get really for a couple days.

Positive: I go out of my way to help people at my work (I work w/ patients in a hospital).

I bought the Shred book by Dr Ian Smith and plan to read it this week and get some ideas.

I finally got on my tread mill today early tis morning and then my youngest started throwing up so there went my work out today. I'll try to sneak in some resistance when DH is home tonight.

How often do you weigh/ get on the scale?

And you know it's coming--say something positive about yourself.
I am so excited to read that so many others weigh everyday. I know the experts say we are only "supposed" to weigh once a week but I really do like to see how I am doing each day. It helps me to make big or small adjustments daily and to evaluate what I have been doing. I do sometimes weigh at night too but not often. I have actually found that I am pretty consistently 2 pounds heavier before I go to bed than I am in first thing in the morning.

Positive: I am a cheerful person. No matter how I am feeling or what is going on I try to be sure to put on a big smile when I greet people or answer the phone at work.


It was great to be back at work today and see everyone. Of course it was busy trying to catch up on things but everyone was in a great mood and it was fun to hear about everyone's break.

I did make my goal of 5000 steps today, and in fact will have at least 6000 by the end of the day. Maybe I need to increase my goal? I will give it a week because today was kind of unusually busy so I may have trouble getting in as much walking around as I did today.

I was actually hungry today which I haven't really been in a few weeks. I had a few very small "meals" to see how my stomach was handling things. I am still having some issues but only eating a few bites at a time kept me from getting sick. DH is making Chicken Marsala for dinner and it smells great! Need to go set the table and make some zucchini to go with it.

I'm just joining in. . .I will pm my weight in just a minute!

I need to lose probably about 20-25, but I would love to lose 10-15 before our upcoming trip! I really just want to get healthier so I have more energy! I do better when I am back at work (on Christmas Break now). I love break, but at work, I limit my calories better because I can only eat what I brought!

I am a weigh-everyday'er too! I agree with the poster who said it helps me monitor small daily adjustments I need to make!

A positive. . .I am outgoing and cheerful. One of my goals for 2013, though, is to be more positive with myself!

My goal for Jan is to lose 5 lbs! Looking forward to keeping myself accountable with this thread!
