Starting TODAY!!!!!

I have so enjoyed the DIS, met so many GREAT people and just came back from a GREAT trip to DISNEY with my family !! Now it's time to get busy....so excited to be working on a health goal with all of you!!

Every Memorial Day my family participates in a 5K walk/run in our community to benefit a scholarship fund set up by a family who lost their high school son suddenly and tragically several years ago! It is a GREAT event and a wonderful kickoff to the summer!

My goal is to be down several sizes 12 to a 6 by that Memorail day race! . (30 lbs).

I want to STOP snacking....eat my meals at the table only, drink lots and lots of water, and get back to excercising 5 days a week at the Y or on my Norditrack.... I also want to cook healthier meals to help my family become healthier!!!

I'll be checking in often and am so greatful to be working together on healthy lifestyle goals...

I'm intersted in joining the challenge. I have lost 41 pounds since last August (2004) on Weight Watchers.

HI everyone
What a WONDERFUL idea this is!!
I am a 33 year old single mom who is disabled... I set a new goal last night and found you today... isn't that funny?
I am trying to lose 20-25 pounds by July for our trip to Disneyworld.
I am switching to grilling everything, and taking up a light exercise routine of biking and walking on our private beach... I am also adding more fruit to my diet (I am a summer fruit person, and there isn't much I really like in other seasons)

I need to exercise more (and eat less). I'd like to loose some pounds and not regain them. I've said goodbye and hello to the same 5 lbs that they have their own revolving door. Of course I'd be at my goal weight if the regaining part hadn't happened so many times. This is it though, I'm getting too old to keep fooling around with this. I'll join!!!!!

Need some motivation!

Hi to all you folks. I have never visited this board before, but since my diet/exercise plan started yesterday I decided it was time to post here.

I HATE exercising!! I know it's necessary now that I'm getting older (38) and everthing is trying to...how can I say this nicely...slip downward. But really, I have never been able to stay on any kind of exercise plan, even though I know all the great benefits. Help!

Here's my background info. I was overweight in High School and college. I fell in love with my DH in college and magically was suddenly able to lose 40 pounds. I have been able to keep it off all these years even through three children. A few years ago my thyroid quit functioning completely and since then I have struggled with my weight. I need to lose 15 pounds and put some muscles back where they used to be. 15 pounds may not sound like a lot, but on me those 15 make a huge difference in my appearance (about 2 sizes!).

I just started yesterday with "The Firm" videos of aerobics and weight training which actually I kind of enjoyed. I don't have a specific diet I'm just trying to eat healthy stuff in smaller portions and cut out the junk food. Do you think that's a bad idea...not to have a set plan?

I don't know what my goal date should be because my metabolism is so messed up that it doesn't work like it used to. Sorry to go on and on...

I am excited to join this group. Thank you!

Hi Debbie7452!

Just wanted to say I think it's great that you have decided to join in start with trying to loose weight along with the rest of us! Goodness knows, the decision to start is one of the hardest steps in itself.

Since you've asked though ...

Just thought I'd let you know, I tried going that route myself and it didn't really work out so well for me I went from trying to cut back my portions and behave myself about eating the proper foods but after a week or two, suddenly my portions were back up to where they were before I started...enough for 2 or 3 people instead of just 1 and then of course the whole weight loss thing just went right out the window I then got to a place where I hit rock bottom..can you believe I wasn't there in the first place and started once again. This time of course with getting outside help. Now, that was me and since no 2 people have exactly the same personality, maybe you wouldn't have the same problems but even if you don't have an exact set plan I feel I would like to give you at least one suggestion and that is to find out what your portions should actually be and weigh and measure your food out. Even if you don't have an exact plan, if you know how much you should have in a sitting/meal and measure it out...you'd be much better off than what I had been doing. I had been trying to do a 3 meals a day thing and no eating in between which sounds great in theory - particularly since I was adhering to it for the most part but then found out later that even though I wasn't eating in between meals and being good (not cheating) so to speak, it was pointed out to me that the reason I was not loosing weight (and hence becoming quite frustrated) was because although I wasn't eating in between, I was still eating 3 times as much per sitting without even realizing it And of course, for the most part I was overeating the protein, not the veggies. Once I found out that I should only be eating 4oz of protein with my meals (chicken,pork,whatever) and that my brain thought that more like double or more was normal and started measuring everything out, low and behold, the weight started to come off

Now again, that was me...maybe things would be different for you. I don't know. But, personnally I think even if you don't have a set plan you may want to try making sure your portions are correct so you don't run into the same problem. I have come to realize for myself that I have more than a weight problem, I have a food problem and I am a volume eater so you may not have the same problem. But what a difference it made when someone pointed that out to me I think like anything else here on the boards, you just need to take what you like and leave the rest. So if anything I've said helps than great if not...than you're no worse off. Best of luck!

Hi again,

Scoootch...thank you so much for the welcome and the advice!

I am definitely listening. I have been reading a lot here and I am going to try eating the 5 small meals a day of healthy nutrition rich food to keep my body burning fuel all day. I will watch those portions carefully. I have to go do that Firm tape again.

I'm In!!!

I am ready to take the challenge. I signed up for WW Online on Monday and I am officially starting on Sunday with next week's meal plan. This is something I'm ready to do and I have DH's support so I'm going for it.

Thanks in advance for all of the support you all provide. I was happy to put the member clippie in my signature.

Cheers!

Test & count me in

My goal is to loose 60 pounds. I plan to workout 5 times a week and attend karate class 2 times a week. I will be changing my eating habits and addressing my stress in a positive way rather than eating through it!
