I don't know your dimensions (and I'm not asking!), but I'd be concerned that you are setting yourself up for disappointment with those goals. There are about 15 weeks left in the year so you'd be on a 2 pound per week pace. That's tough for anyone! I've always heard it preached that gradual is the best pace because that usually means that you've undergone a LIFESTYLE change rather than just putting forth a concentrated effort. 1/2 a pound a week would have you losing your goal by sometime next fall, but at this pace it's much more likely that you'd maintain whatever changes are getting you toward your goal. As for exercise, I see that as deposits in the bank. If I work out for an hour or two, I get to eat a more reasonable portion without any guilt. Good luck.

Smile OK 20lbs by the new year

I put this 30 lb goal by the new year, because I managed to gain 20 lbs in 2 months . So I really feal like I'd be losing 10 lbs from my original weight prior to 2 months ago.

I think I drank too much soda (even though diet) to gain the exta weight.

We will see if I can take off at leat 20 lbs by the new year.


Still not exercising

In all honesty, I don't think you can gain that much weight from diet soda. You have to be taking in a lot more calories than you are burning. I lost 70 pounds fifteen years ago with WW, gained back 40 over the years, went back to WW last year and lost 20 of that, and realistically, would like to lose another 10. When I examined how I gained weight both times, it was two things:
mindless eating (sometimes even forgetting that I'd had a meal, so eating it again, then remembering what I'd already eaten),
and portion size. I thought I was eating a serving of cereal, ice cream, salad dressing or whatever, but when I started measuring it, I found out it was two or three servings. Things like muffins and bagels are a killer, because I thought of them as one bread serving, only to find out some had as many calories as seven pieces of bread.
If you can't join WW, get a good calorie listing booklet, or you can look online at Calorieking.com. There are a lot of resources online with nutritional information for restaurants. Good luck to all. (an if you can swing it, exercise really does make a difference. I put my favorite songs on iTunes and dance when nobody is around. It's fun.)

Thumbs down

Future Hubby and I decided to get some journals to keep track of what we eat and everything to help keep track. We are doing the weight loss thing together. Odd thing I found out today. I hope someone has some experience with this and can give some insight. I had a Dr. Appt today and he told me I have some thyroid problem...apparently this is the reason for my weight gain. He is probably going to put me on some pill to fix it and I HOPE that takes care of my weight. Part of the problem is from birth control also. Anyone ever had or know anyone who has had a thyroid problem and how it was dealt with??

Now at 190#. I joined this thread on 8/16/06. Since then, I've logged about 330 miles on the bike. Not great, but it's getting some results. Two months and ten pounds.

Haven't been here in a while...

Although I haven't checked in here, I've been sticking to WW really well. So far I've taken off 27 lbs with them. My WISH total is 23 lbs!!!! I've already surpassed the WW 10% goal and am only 13 lbs away from my current goal of 130 lbs!!! Woo hoo! I say "current" because I'm really going by how I look and feel vesus a specific weight, but I'm really excited about how I'm doing so far.

But I'm back on disboards now and I'll keep y'all posted. Going to get my new banner now.

Lots of Love,

WISH Challenge

Okay, I'm ready to take the WISH challenge. I thought I posted this yesterday, but I guess my post didn't go through. Between then and now, I have lost 3.3 pounds! So, my goal is to loose 50 pounds, and i'm already 3.3 pounds in, only 46.7 pounds to go.

I think my main issues are pretty much the same as dwheatl, mindless eating, and portion size. Im hoping to keep a food and exercise journal, and stick with smaller that suggested portion sizes. I've also joined the November Fitness Challenge, and while my goal is low (500 minutes) I kind of despise exersise so even a little amount will help.

Thanks for being such a supporting group all!

Sign me up! I am 5'5" and about 192 lbs. I need to lose weight due to blood pressure issues, plus my mom has had 2 knee replacement surgeries and I feel the excess weight can't be good for my joints either. I don't have a specific goal - I was 135 when I first started having kids 17 years ago, I think I would celebrate every level - 180, 170, 160, 150? I was walking with friends several times a week until recently when I hurt my ankle. My problem has been cutting back on junky foods. I don't want to gain any weight between now and Jan 1. This has always been a tough time for me weight-wise.

I am in.

My goal is to lose 20#

I will
1) Work out 3 times a week (or more)
2) Try to kick my sugar habit, one day at a time.
3) Keep a food journal.
4) Try to eat more fruits and veggies.

Sign me up

Please sign me up for the challenge .. I have quite a bit of weight to lose, so I'm going to think short term for now. My doctor said she would be happy if I was down even 10 pounds by my next annual (1 year from today), but my personal goal is to be down at least 20 pounds by my trip to Europe next July. I also want to build my stamina up for all the walking in Europe, so my goal is to get half an hour of exercise at least 3 times a week ... Wish me luck!

Red face

Count me in! I've been looking for some motivation to keep me focused and healthy, earning new clip art can't hurt....

I did the Slim Fast diet a few years ago and lost almost 20lb but gained it all back and then some. I need to slim down by at least 30 lb, should really be 40 but the last 10 are so hard.

I'm sort of doing WW on my own, I work with people who are doing it and thought it would be easier if I was mostly on the same plan they are. It's been over a montha nd no luck yet; I was happy I didn't gain anything over the holiday. I don't get to eat much early in the day due to work, I usually feel lucky to have breakfast and lunch, most days it's one or the other and some days it's neither.

Hopefully I can lose jsut a bit before we leave for WDW, Dh is buying a readmill this weekend so he can try to slim down a bit too.

I'll take the challenge!

I started on the HMR program about 6 weeks ago and as of the doctor's scale this morning I am down 28 pounds. I have tried so many things that didn't work for me, phen-phen, WW, etc. So far so good on this program. I am ordering the food and shakes online and my doctor is doing blood tests once a month to keep check on me. I was at the point where my blood sugars were getting a little high, I had to go on cholesterol meds this summer and I was just feeling lousy due to back pain and shortness of breath. I even had to have a cardiac work up and I'm only 48. I also have artritis in my knees. Obesity runs in family big time. Plus I had ovarian cancer and a hysterectomy at the age of 21. That was when the weight really piled on. Even with little I've lost so far I am feeling much better already- breathing better and the back pain has diminished greatly.

The treadmill is here and assembled. DH and I have both used it too. We haven't been very active lately so we're pooped after just a little bit but we're still trying to stick with it.

BTW; how do I get the WISH banner?
