Hi everyone - I haven't read through all the posts - just a few, and wonder if there are other men on here - surely I'm not the only guy that needs to lose! Anyway, my wife, son (2 1/2 yr old) and I are Disney Vets and love to go. We're going the middle of September again for our next trip and reading the post has motivated me. I lost 55 pounds last year doing SugarBusters. It's a great diet that helps you eat healthy without much exercise. I'm a United Methodist Minister and don't have an awful lot of time for exercise. Anyway, I was at 280 last year and lost to 225. I'm still right at the 228.5 mark but want to get down below 200 before September. It's amazing how much easier it is to walk around the parks without the extra 55 pounds! The ideal weight for my height is around 180 so who knows, maybe I'll get there too! I'll keep you posted - keep me in your prayers - everybody in churches thinks the preacher has just got to eat their fried chicken! Let me know and I'll pray for y'all through this too! Thanks.

Hi!

Well I started today with Atkins and working out everyday at least 20 minutes. I had lost a lot of weight for my wedding (Sept. 03) but have become a chubby wifey since. I would like to lose 35 lbs.

Thanks for letting me join in!

I'm starting a new day today and began Weight Watchers online. I have done WW before (in my early 20's) and was successful with it. It's 10 years later, and I need to lose about 30-35 pounds, and plan on celebrating with each pound lost! If can lose more than that, great, but mostly I just want to be comfortable in my own skin again. I plan on following WW's point plan and stepping up my exercise. I'm hoping by my trip to Disney that I will have lost the majority of the weight I intend to lose! What a motivator!

I'm back! (I haven't been over here since I fell off the Atkins wagon last June, lol.) Luckily over all that time I only gained back 4 of the 10 pounds I lost last time. It could have been much worse!

I started Atkins again on Monday and hopefully can stay with it this time. I have missed how good I felt last time! :D

I need to stop jumping on the scale everytime I walk past it though, lol. I do know weight varies from day to day and even from one time of day to another, but I can't help myself! ugh! Starting today I am planning on Monday weigh-ins, making it weekly, and otherwise I'm staying off the scale! lol

(Looking to lose about 30 ponds, but would be happy with 20.)

I started the SBD a week ago and I hope to lose 20 pounds. I've lost 5 so far...but it's tough! I have a petite frame so every pound counts.

I am also a scale addict. I also cannot walk by without hoping on - and I know I not learning anything as weight fluctuates.

Good luck to us!!!

I started about 8 weeks ago, and have lost 15 pounds as of today. I'm seriously restricting my calorie intake, and doing 30 minutes on my Gazelle elliptical machine 4-5 mornings a week. My goal is to lose another 30-40 pounds. 40 pounds would be where I was in high school - that would be quite a feat for a 35-year-old who has had two children, LOL!

I started WW online yesterday. I plan to exercise and follow the WW plan. I hope to lose 25 pounds. After having 4 children within 5 years, I am ready to look thin and trim again!

I would like to join too!

I need the motivation now. I was doing good about 2 years ago, going to the gym before work, weights, elliptical. People were noticing and I got down to my goal weight! I vowed I would never again slip into my bad habits, but I did....I stopped going to the gym, workouts got harder and now I haven't seriously worked out for over a year. I need to get back into my good habits! I can't go back to the gym because it's just too early for me to work out so I'll have to do it at home after work. Cardio: maybe go for walks around the neighborhood...I'd prefer to jog, but I haven't been able to for awhile due to bursitis symptoms in my hips. I also have a Nordic Track, but I hate it, it's boring. Of course there are my dumbbells looking at me now....

I think I'll start with brown bagging a healthy lunch for work tomorrow. Let's see...it's 8:30...might have time for a few sets before bed...see, you guys are helping me already!

My goal is to get back to 135-140 lbs. by my 45th birthday in September. I'm probably somewhere around 160 now.

Thanks. I'll check in again later.

Wow.....

Reading these posts have now got me motivated once again.

Just a quick run down of where I am at. Last year I lost close to 40 pounds. Then gained about half of it back. Between Jan and Mar I was able to lose those pounds again. But, because of stress and my lack of will power since april I have almost gained 15 back once more. So in total, I have only lost 25 pounds. Which I am proud of, but know I have more to go. I have a wishing goal of losing 75 more pounds...(a true wish with pixie dust of course). But I would be happy with any loss.

I plan on doing what works.....eating healthier and working out. I try to keep my calories within limits - low fat and more "good for you" foods. I do tread mill at least 5 times a week and then take a day to do some yoga to unwind. Also try being active every chance I get. But what helps me the most is being postive and keeping my eye on my goal.

Seeing all these post and seeing how everyone else is motivated has now got me back on track once again. Im actually looking foward to tomorrow and starting back on track. Good luck to everyone!

Talking

Hi All,
I lost about 20 pounds before my DW last December and I was at 5'7 155lbs. Since then I have been working 3 jobs to save for a home I have neglected myself. My husband and I are going on a cruise in the fall and I would love it if there were less of me! I have had the most luck with the low carb diet and remebering to drink my water everyday! I also would like to start walking during my lunch breaks everyday and slowly incorporate more exercise as the weight comes off. My goal is probably to lose 40 pounds and just start living a healthier life style. Also my husband and I are talking about having a baby so I would like to be fit to prevent any complications from being overweight. Another modivator for me is that this year I will be 30 and would like my 30's to be healther than my 20's. It is time to care of ME!

HI all.... I would like to join you all also....

I am 24... going to be 25 in July, and have been overweight pretty much my whole life.. LOL... Did GREAT on WW 2 years ago, and lost 45 lbs.. But, then alot of 'life" stuff happened, and I also ended up in the hospital for a while... and have gained EVERYTHING back....

I have started to walk again. and going to Join Curves.... I don't have a problem with what I eat really... WW says I have a problem because I DON'T eat.. and my body won't let go of any of the calories I do consume.. and another major problem of mine is getting off my butt..LOL..

so, I think it would be great to have the support... I would really love to join.

I've got 120-130 lbs to loose so it is a long road.
