Slimline for summer!

I'm sure I can't be the only one ehre carrying more than a little extra timber which I'd like to (scratch that - NEED to) lose before the summer comes round and all those wobbly bits come out of hiding from under the jumpers PLus I've got a wardrobe full of things I'm hoping to fit back into rather than donate to charity shops.

Here's where I am now:

UK size 16 (but bursting out of some) - that's a US 12 I think
At least 28lb overweight (where did that come from!)
Rather too prone to just because its dinner time

I want to be

UK size 14 comfortably (US8)
28lb + (++?) lighter
Wine weekends only (and maybe one day in the week)

I don't eat loads of cookies and cakes, but I do like a bit of chocolate and a LOT of cheese And of course wine And what I save on wine I reckon I can leagally spend on scrapping/clothes/vacations.......

Anyone with me?

I"m trying to lose 10 (maybe 15 since the beginning of the New Year - usually I stay about 135lbs but when I got home from my getaway I was 141)
anyways this morning I"m at 137 but want to get to 125lbs or maybe 120lbs

I"m going to do atkins - that usually works for me as long as I don't have to go out to eat (I swear they add sugar to everything)

I'm in. I've been doing the Biggest Loser challenge on the WISH forum but I'll join here too. More people to hold me accountable.

Does anyone use My Fitness Pal? It's a website and an app and you can track your food and your exercise. If anyone wants to join, it's free, and my username is the same as it is here.

My biggest thing right now is I need to move more and eat less. My portion size is crazy out of control. But I really need to workout.
My long term goal is to run the Princess 1/2 in 2014, that gives me 1 year from February to train. I plan to do C25K (couch to 5K) and 30 Day shred.

I need to lose a few, okay a lot of pounds...My problem isn't what I eat so much as I need to get myself moving. I'm hoping to get a new job in Boston, which will mean a lot (and I mean a lot) more walking.

Reddy I use my fitness with just my computer. Granted I can't access alot of the stuff but I've found that loggin the exercise and food alone helps.

Some of you may remember that I've tried this a few times in the last year. and everytime I've given up, well like most of you this am I thought he double hockey sticks I've GOT to get myself going again! So I gingerly drug out the scale and the measuring tape. Okay I'm going to step off a cliff here and write the numbers......... so the last time I tried this i went from 196 to 191 then 2 months later it was back and I gave up....... so this am i was dreading to step on that scale knowing it was going to hit 200 so i bit the bullet and stepped on to find out it said 187 so after I picked myself up off the floor I tried it again and got the same number. well I honestly have no clue what I've been doing different (well maybe a small one that we won't talk abt) so now that I felt really good abt that number I realized I'm with in the 10 lbs of my first goal, that 177 that I haven't seen since I lost the baby weight with Eric ( he's 12 need to remember to change my siggy), so after that goal I'll reasess.

Jen that's a big commute isn't it?
Buffy you can do it!
Mazda I'd love to see a us 12!!!

I know a friend from Switzerland used it, so it's got to be an international thing.

We should also share healthy meals/recipes we like that might inspire others to try to help with their weight loss. Or just snacks that we eat too?

I just made tortellini soup. 3 tubs of chicken broth, 1/2 bag of shredded carrots, 4 stalks of chopped celery, 2 T of italian seasoning, can of kidney beans, sausage (turkey sausage is what I use), and a little crushed red pepper (optional). I simmer all of that for a while or put it in the crock pot. Then I add a little cheese tortellini about 30-45 minutes before we are ready to eat. Sprinkle with a little parm. cheese and pepper before eating. The less tortellini you add, the more healthy the soup is! LOL

I am in- I am determined to stop gaining and start losing. I have been using the AP- Lose It- I love that I can just scan the barcodes of the food I am eating but I will check out my fitness pal as well.

I did well until I went to my brothers house (since returning from Christmas vacation- but haven't checked since I headed across the state so I will see how I did with tomorrow mornings weigh in.
