I finally hit rock bottom at 235 pounds. I made the decision to lose weight and get fit. This is not my first go'round with losing weight. I have lost and regained in the past. So whats different this time? Well I feel like I've learned to not give up when I slip. Because I WILL slip. This time, I pick myself up and keep going. Just because I have a slip with food does not mean that I have failed. I just tell myself to "SUCK IT UP AND GET OVER IT!" Yes, I do have pep talks with myself ...

Food will not cure my boredom, stess, fatigue, or bad moods. I know this and remind myself often.

SparkPoints: 11,182

Fitness Minutes: 14,581

My Goals:
My goal is to lose fat and gain muscle. I would like to keep improving my fitness level.

Another goal is to learn the reasons why I tend to overeat and learn how to deal with it.

My Program:
My exercise program is a three day split with weights. I also try to get some cardio in on most days.

My food program is just using the Spark nutrition tracker and eating clean.

Other Information:
I enjoy riding ATV's with my husband and two boys. I also enjoy cheap, smutty romance novels. As another form of exercise, I have recently started taking belly dancing lessons which is much harder than I thought but I love every minute of it!

Congratulations!!! emoticon That is Awesome! I know what you mean about carbs, but I am just trying to eat balanced and within range. It takes a very strong person and lots of willpower to avoid them. Way to go! Keep up the great work! Sheesh at 3lbs a week you will be down to your goal weight in no time! emoticon

Aw thanks! Do you think you will get one soon? They are running a special on the combo right now, just got to apexfitness.com I think it goes to the end of the month. It has made things a lot easier, thats for sure. I was even able to splurge a little and still had a deficit. I know you would definately excell. How is everything going? You do those heavy duty workouts (ones that would kill me) but give you a huge calorie burn. I hope to get to that level sometime soon. I know my endourance is starting to get higher. Hopefully all is well and you are right on track where you want to be after being sick. Take care & keep up the great work! emoticon

Hiya! Well. If it's the scale you want to move, I would recomend INSANITY. If it's muscle you want to gain, I would say P90X.
My knee is having a hard tiume with INSANITY though... I like the workouts, but I have found that I can do them day after day, every day. I can throw in one or two a week into my schedule...
And, yeah. I'm not crazy about Shock Cardio either.
Anyhow, I also like the INSANITY workouts in month 2 better. They are longer. Oh! And not to worry. INSANITY has PLENTY of push-ups and plyo for your upper and lower body. I don't think you will lose a lot of muscle. The only thing I don't care for in INSANITY is the ABS workout. It is tough enough, but it is really hard on my lower back.
Anyhow...
Keep me posted on what you decide to do.

Oh fun fun lol. Don't let people like that get to you. They are put here on earth to keep us busy emoticon Keep up the good work with your diet...even hit or miss will have an impact.

A long time ago, after going back and forth with someone about the rulebook, the guy next in line told me a quote...I like it so much I wrote it down because it makes me feel so much better when I have to deal with those types of people.

"Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

LOL so very true!!! Have a great day!
