    Yesterday was weigh-in...

    Weight = 251.6
    Total loss to date = 15.2
    Days till wdw/cruise = 190

    This is my lowest weight in over 2 years. I'm having some hbp issues right now that I need to sort out though. Trying to get healthy. It's been a long time coming.

    It has been almost 2 weeks since my last post. I have been hesitant to post since I have been moving in the opposite direction and didn't want to record it. I have managed to lose a little again though I'm still 2.5 lbs more than I was.

    I weighed in this morning at 245... and then went for a 3+ mile walk. I have another one scheduled for tomorrow am. I've got to get back on track. One reason I love My Fitness Pal is that it keeps records and I can look back at my eating habits over the last 3 months to see what was working and where I'm going wrong.

    Here goes!

    I lost another 2 lbs and broke 250! I needed a good week.

    Current weight = 249.4
    Total lost = 17.2
    Days till cruise = 183

    I'm thinking my goal will be another 20 lbs by the end of this summer (maybe more like end of July) so I can shop for clothes for the cruise and wdw.

    Not sure if anyone here would like a challenge, but there are 5 of us at work doing this. It is a squat challenge. Nice thing about it is the toning aspect. It is hilarious. We are on day 5, but we really are all busy moms that teach, and so you will see us doing our squats at lunch waiting for our food to heat up in the microwave.

    You measure your hips and both thighs- then follow the schedule. The work outs I am doing were missing the toning aspect that this challenge offers. Don't get me wrong, you will feel this in your butt and thighs. We just spread it out during the day because alot of us said 50 squats in one day.....and then saw by the end you are doing 250 squats in one day. You have to spread it out.

    Happy squatting!!!

    Currently 190, most I've ever weighed, even during pregnancies.
    Cruise is 11/30/13.

    Goals: Lose 30-40 lbs.
    Decrease cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides, as I'm going through
    menopause and now my heart disease risk will be equal to men.
    Pros: Increased energy/strength
    Less back, knee, and hip arthritic discomfort
    Less heartburn
    Feeling overall more positive
    Enjoy my cruise more
    Plan: Workout at my Koko club regularly (5-6 days per week)
    Limit carbs, only whole grains
    Limit alcohol consumption
    Protein with each meal
    Keep cold water bottle nearby
    Record food intake/daily weight in MFP app
    Use this thread as motivation
    Make appointment with primary for checkup, bloodwork 6 months
    from now to check numbers again. If haven't improved, will need
    to start on cholesterol medication. We shall see.

    Let's do this! :woohoo:

    Great to get some discussion back on this page. I have been struggling with the food, and a little with the exercise. I have signed up for the October Twilight Tower of Terror 10 miler, and we thought we would throw in the 5K in the morning. I would love to lose 30 lbs. by the race, and the cruise the following week. That would be approx. 2 lbs. a week. Let's see what I an do.

    So I've been totally MIA and eating badly but I'm back on track now. I gained 4lbs over my unhealthy period so aiming to start losing what I've gained.

    Ugh, still not keeping to my healthy eating. I get the day on the right foot, and all but one lunch was perfect, but when it comes to supper and after dinner snacks, I am failing. On Thursday, I received great news at work that has been stressing me for quite a few months, I had a great work out, and then what did I do - ate a hamburger and FRIES WITH GRAVY. What am I doing? After such a great day, why did I sabatoge myself? Friday was great eating during the day, I was getting ready to go the gym, but it was our 27th wedding anniversary, and my DH wanted to take me out for dinner. I missed my workout, got home, and he had changed his mind, so I ate salad, and CHEESE, and shrimp and nibbled throughout the evening. I am hoping by publicly confessing that I stop doing this to myself. I need to remember that I have to get into better weight shape for my race in the fall, and of course to look great on the cruise.

    Relaxin'-sorry about the almost good diet. Honestly, if you can work it into your calorie allowance, a little fun food is good for you!

    I'm happy I have pretty nearly lost a pound this week after scrupulous eating and exercise and lots and lots of water. I am so not loving being hypothyroid right now.

    No workout today (gotta take a rest day at least weekly to keep my body guessing) instead I'm stage mom for my DDs ballet recital.

    Have a happy healthy weekend y'all!

    Hi there, I just got an amazing deal on a Cruise for 3 days and it is less than a month away.... I am now desperate to drop at least 5 lbs, as the last Cruise I went on --- well lets say, we all gained 3lbs! It took me 3 weeks to get rid of those 3 lbs from Easter. At least we can say they have good food on the Cruise! I will make sure I will hit the gym this time, just to off set... or at least try to!

    Welcome! 5 pounds in a month is totally doable!

    Weigh in after the long weekend yet?

    I still lost two pounds since last week. (Phew!)

    I really think that lifting heavy combined with high intensity intervals for cardio really has been key for me. Dropping my longer runs (5 miles+) ironically seems to be helping my weight loss.

    What's been working for my fellow cruisers?

    Hi, I've really been increasing the protein with each meal, and staying active.
    Tennis lessons, treadmill running, and yoga for stretching.
    I'm down a lb since last week, and really being focused on my time line.
    Of course, who wouldn't want to drop 10lbs in a month, but I am not setting any unrealistic goals as I find this pressure doesn't help. Going slow and steady! Trying to control my environment and planning I think are tools that help along the way...... so 1/5 GONE!!
