Lose 90 pounds - Celebrate as I go through my "fat" clothes and make room for my new upcoming wardrobe!!! Lose 100 pounds - Buy new wardrobe (obviously not literally replace everything) Lose 100 pounds plus - Celebrate!!!
Okay - here I am again - trying again. Hopefully I will see some results this time. Things I am going to do differently: 1. take vitamins. 2. track literally everything I eat - even if it puts me over!! 3. Join a Gym (after I quit smoking). This is NOT a News Year Resolution - It is simply another attempt of me trying to lose weight.
I am having a hard time figuring out how to balance work - school - family - exercise. I am open to any suggestions.
I have been on a volleyball league since April 2011 and was hoping to at least see some results - but nothing. I feel like I am at a constant stand still with this weight loss journey. I need something that will kickstart me. Any suggestions?
I am trying to stay motivated and positive but seem to be struggling with that more and more each day.
Thank you to my sister for inspiring me and motivating me to WANT the change and to go for it! I love you! (PRICELESS)
1. Stop procrastinating 2. STOP SMOKING BY May 1, 2013 3. Make time for "me" and exercise 4. small goal: lose 20 pounds in 3-6 months. 5. larger goal: lose 50 pounds before my wedding in September 2013.
here is the problem - I don't really have a "program". So I am going to start out small - bring a pair of sneakers to work - and walk on breaks and lunch (instead of smoking --- which is another change I will try to make eventually).**I have been doing this for about a week** I seriously need to increase my water intake - I do really good at work and drink nothing but water --- I need that to carry over to home.**I bought a water cup for myself at home and have started drinking more water at home**
I am the mother of 4 (oldest is almost moved out and youngest is in 1st grade. I just graduated with my MBA. I work full time. In November I became an aunt again to twin girls, Madison and Emily. Unfortunately due to their premature birth Emily was very, very sick and she passed away on March 18th. The past 4 months have been very stressful with lots of trips to the hospital to visit. Now I need to focus on trying to get back to normal which means back to my weight loss goals. I recently partcipated in a Biometric screening through my employer and learned that for the most part I am "healthy" except for the weight and the fact that I have too much bad cholesterol and not enough good cholesterol which bumped me into the "at above average risk" category for heart disease. So yet another reason to focus on eating right and exercising.
I hate to excercise but have come to realize sometimes you have to do things you don't "like" to get things you "want", If you want it bad enough you will do it...
My first goal is to lose 20 pounds. Then I will set more goals after I have accomplished this one. I have learned that if I set a goal to lose say 50 pounds I will get discouraged because no progress is being made. I started out 3 weeks ago at 229.4 pounds and now I am at 223.8 --- so I am headed in the right direction at least.
Hey thanks for joining my challenge! I am glad to have you! Be sure to stop by the discussion forum and read the details of how it works. I have done this program myself a few times and I have gotten such good results. By all means it is no miracle program it takes work and self discipline, but with that you can get great improvements. Tons of people have asked me how I lost my weight, and I decided that I would just set up a team based on what I do. So if you want to follow my work out program you could. I am working super hard to keep everything really active and have a great support system throughout the team. Anyways, I will let you go. I hope to see a lot of you on the team forums! Have a great day!
Yeah, I like ellipticals too but found that they are Way too expensive as far as home equipment goes. The ones I could afford are super cheap and wouldn't work for my height/stride. Treadmills are great because even the "cheap" ones work the same. lol I used Brian's while I was in Va and even though it was super old it still worked just the same.
Yuppers! You could easily loose 2lbs a week...if you create enuff of a caloric deficit you could potentially loose 3lbs a week! (I wouldn't suggest going over that though) Wogging is FaNtAsTiC!! I've been doing it a few months. I was finally up to running 2 miles straight but then started back at the beginning so I could work on my times more. Now I'm up to a 9+ minute mile. Not too bad but not really up to par for races. Anyways, if you could manage to find a cheap treadmill to buy that could help you out a whole lot. Then you don't have to worry about going anywhere. ;) YOU CAN DO IT!!! It's just a frame of mind ;-)
That's great! It sounds like you're already making some healthy choices! Just be sure to add in some good cardio to those ST sessions - both are equally important! You need to be burning the fat off (cardio) while building the muscle (ST)!! Add a good healthy diet to that & you ought to be good to go! You could easily drop 20+ pounds by your wedding if you got serious about it today!
