do you have any home gym equipment? my favorite is the stability ball. You can do virtually any thing with one of them babies! as far as the snow that it's self is a work out to shovel out of the way. I hope you don't give up on the gym. keep strong!!

So, I get up at 5:15, bags packed for gym and guess what? 4 inches of snow to shovel out of driveway and leaves no time to go to the gym or I'd be late for work....it's discouraging. I am just too tired after a 3 hour commute, 8 hrs working to then go to the gym at night.
It's a problem....I'm paying for a gym membership and getting there once per week....anyone have a suggestion?

Be away a few days, was sick and then prepping for the famous "colonoscopy". It's miserable, but, easily you lose 3 lb. (mostly water). Anyway, new determination....getting up early and going to the gym before work! Now, that's feat and takes planning, but, I can do it!

Wow! My trainer almost killed me! Not really but quite a work-out. I have to go to gym tomorrow and Friday and repeat those exercises (eliptical and cybex machines). Then I meet with her again on Saturday. All my muscles are sore....I mean ALL of THEM....but, it's a good feeling, to know and feel that you've used your body.
I'm hanging in with my food, but, it's tough. I feel hungry and I have cravings especially at night. Nothing new there....

Thanks, Gloria (and all you fine SparkPeople!) It's 5 PM....I'm meeting my trainer at 6:30....dust off the sneakers, squeeze into some stretch Capri's and off I'll go. I have to remind myself not to forget to bring water...I downloaded the SparkPeople app to my phone so no excuses for not logging my food and activity....I'm excited.....and a bit scared.....you see I have been here before...all excited and then failed or gained it back.....They say Thomas Edison tried a ga-zillion times to get that light bulb lit....and....then.....one day......there was light!
Thanks for your support friends, lets keep trying!

Thanks for the support SparkPeople! Jan. 3-7 my son is visiting. He and his bride-to-be are working on losing and getting healthier, too!
But, there is still alot of holiday food around...so we are accepting some "indescretions" as we celebrate the Holdays and their engagement.
My serious, committed "start" date is Jan 7....I have joined a gym and made an appt with a personal trainer. I think the personal trainer is a good idea as you have an appointment, someone is waiting, you have to go!

Alsp, best wishes Magpie

I agree that journaling helps. [1] Keeping an accurate and *honest* food journal/diary has aided me, such as this last year, but also 2004-2007 when I kept one. After I skipped several days back then, which became a couple weeks, and then journal-abandonment, I lost track of my eating habits and the rest ... and ended up where I needed to join SP last year. And [2] a personal journal (a) provides a wonderful record of thoughts and events, (b) provides a great way to think through and over things, and (c) for those of us who want to be better rights provides great writing practice.

Hi Magpie...

I totally hear you, my oldest son got married in Aug and I felt the same. You can do it! We all have to start somewhere, just baby steps.

I have been off and on from here for a while, but I can say that it doesnt matter what is happening or what is going on, ppl here are so supportive and friendly. It truely does help.

Hope you have a great day, and keep your chin up :p

Gloria

They say journaling increasing your chances for success. So, never having been a big "journaler" before, I'm going to give it a shot.
My only son is getting married April 26 this year. I don't want to be a "fatty" in pictures that will last for YEARS!!
Also, having just started Metformin for pre-diabetes, there's the health issue.
Notice I listed the "vanity" issue first. Just being honest.
I pledge to be honest with myself and this journal and SparkPeople.
