I've skimmed this board a few times but finally decided last Thursday to really make an effort and loose this weight. I have a goal to loose 50 pounds by next June. I have not had a Coke in four days and am trying to eat better. I also walked on the treadmill this morning for 45 minutes. This is something I really want to do so I hope to be spending alot of time here and getting some good tips.

New Year's Resolutions

I've been struggling for the past few months with an irregular exercise schedule. I'm taking karate and trying to walk but often find that one excuse after another keeps me from working toward that goal. My weight has remained steady other than a recent 2.5 pound loss. So, I'm 5'2" at 197 pounds. I have signed up with Men's Health for their 5 week new year's program and will register for karate and for gym priviledges at the college where my karate class is held. I need to get into better shape before a big trip overseas and in the hope that there might be a new lady in my life. How's that for motivation? It's time to get serious!! The big 5-0 is approaching and some things need to change!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays All!

Well, I did it... lost my first 10 pounds.... I wish I could tell you it was hard, but with the holiday rush and fitting in our first DCL Cruise two weeks ago... I don't really know how that all happened. Guess I've been really busy, no time for snacking.

I choose to lose weight for me. And to help me keep up with my 2yo DD. Whatever you choose as your motivation, I hope you stick with it. There are always set backs, just remember what motivated you to begin with.

Good luck all.... see you in the New Year!

Count me in - again. I started South Beach & the Y 1.5 yrs ago. Lost in the induction phase & never figured out the second phase (never spent the time). Naturally I gained back all I lost & then some. The only time I've ever weighed this much was when I was in my last trimester of pregnancy.
I know I felt better when I was exercising at the Y even though I rarely made it more than 2x per week.
Last week I went to Curves & made an appt for an introductory workout. I was an hour late for my appt today but I did go. I was trained on the machines & did a circuit by myself. I think this is something I can & will do so I signed up. DH said he'd pay for my membership. I did pay for the initail fee & 1st month from DH's checking account. However, I feel like I need to have the monthly draw from my own account to keep me motivated.
I liked the way I felt when I did go to the Y. DH wants to go to Colorado this summer & I'd like to do more hiking with him & our boys. I also need to loss some serious weight - at least 50 lbs. But I don't intend to make the weight loss my primary focus in the beginnig. It will come naturally at first since I haven't been exercising lately.
I am counting on my fellow DISers for some moral support. I know from past experience that this is a great place to find support. Thanks for being there.

My husband and I are starting to try to lose weight. We are going to do some sort of activity every day, even if it is just walking the dog for 15 minutes. We also are going to start writing down everything we eat. Next grocery day (1/13) we are going to have all of our meals planned out, and we are going to stock up on veggies. We are going to start taking our lunches to work ( which will also help with $$). I have the Rachel Ray "Get Real Meals" Cookbook, as well as a large WW cookbook, so we are planning to use those to start planning healthy meals.
I am only 25, and 5'6" almost 188 pounds. This is not good. My dad's side of the family has always had weight issues, so I will have to fight against that, but I know we can do it. I have learned a lot from reading on the boards, and I hope that I can learn more weight loss techniques!

I'm new here too. I have been exercising since last January- very proud of myself- but I also want to eat healthier. My goal is to lose 20 pounds by June. We are going to Mexico and I want to feel better walking around in a bathing suit.

Getting Started

My name is Amber. I am 27 and weigh about 205. I am 5' 9". I was maybe 210 at my heaviest before we lost weight the last time. I would like to lose 65 pounds. I would like to lose the first 50 by July 1st. That is a big goal, but I think if I work hard and stay motivated I can do it.

My DH and I are planning to start a family around the beginning of next year. I have stated many times that I want to lose weight and get in better shape before we try to conceive. I want to be a healthy mother and be pretty while I'm pregnant. Another motivating factor is that this summer will be DH and my ten year high school reunion. I would really like to lose weight before going to that.

You guys are so nice and supportive. I plan to join the January challenges and add my picture to the photo album thread. I really need this accountability.
I plan to walk at least 5 days a week starting at 1 mile and working my way up. I am going to start eating healthier foods and smaller portions.

I definitely need to join. I already have joined in some of the challenges but wanted to check in here as well. I really hope I can lose the weight this time. I really feel like I have the determination and hopefully the willpower this time.
