  • It's Been a While...

    7/30/2014 1:04:27 PM, by KRISTALSHYT

    So I see I haven't been very active here for... months. Well, I haven't stopped losing weight or exercising, or any of that. Life has just been terribly busy. I had a lot of travel to visit various family members, and finally my summer is starting to settle down. I showed up today because I finally ... Read more

  • I Haven't Been Around in a year...

    7/30/2014 3:47:49 AM, by ANISALEAH

    My update isn't great at all. I'm pretty much starting all over and that really stinks. No matter what I did I couldn't seem to stop gaining weight. Considering that I've been computer-less for over a year now you would think that I would have lost weight. That is definitely not the case. I'm still ... Read more

  • Change is difficult

    7/29/2014 9:20:29 PM, by MEZZED

    I'd like to think that I have an open mind and that I'm open to change however that doesn't seem to be the case when changing eating habits. The positive thing if you can call it that is that my taste buds have changed or the food(s) that I used to enjoy has been altered or the recipe changed. One o... Read more

  • day 74 not as planned

    7/29/2014 8:01:29 PM, by MELNJAY3

    Well I didn't eat very well today, not as planned. But that's ok. I know i wont see a change on scale. That's ok. Very busy day.... Read more

    I wanted to take a pic to see if there is any difference yet. What do u think. The before is in April at 283 and the other taken today. 257.8 ... Read more

  • It's about getting healithier - losing weight is just a bonus

    7/25/2014 8:14:35 AM, by MEZZED

    That's what we all should realize, it might be why we fail. We only see the end result and don't acknowledge the journey to get there and the true reasons why. It's possible, 99% of us are trying to lose weight because of our appearance. We don't like the way we look or how others perceive us so we ... Read more

    Happy 15 yrs to this man right here. We have defiantly had our ups downs all around, but with God's love Grace and guidance we are still here together. then and... Read more

  • day 68 learning

    7/23/2014 8:43:53 AM, by MELNJAY3

    These are not mine. I found these and wanted to share. In the game of life we learn from our mistakes as well as others. By then only the smart, wise ones really learned. Learning something means coming into contact with a world of which you know nothing. In order to learn, you must be hum... Read more

  • Day 422: As BLC25 winds down...

    7/21/2014 8:01:45 PM, by PERFECTVELVET

    As usual, I absolutely loved my time in the BLC. The various challenges were fun and well thought-out. However, I didn't make much progress; in fact, I went backwards in some respects! The best thing about BLC25 was my team. I feel at home with the Amber Amazon Warriors, but this... Read more

  • Monday Day 6 of vegan regimen

    7/21/2014 5:32:54 AM, by MEZZED

    Energized today but weight loss has stalled. It's possible there's too much sea salt in my diet. Yesterday, I lost 0.2 lbs which isn't a lot at all yet my overall mood was marred by my experience with my "friend" which shouldn't have been. I need to stop taking things so personal & need to get ... Read more

  • Sunday for self doubt

    7/20/2014 6:03:31 AM, by MEZZED

    My buttons were pushed last night by someone that I thought was a friend, maybe he was just an acquaintance but the words that came out of his mouth were quite racist. From his superior tone he was clearly "All American, white bread" whatever that means. He kept making generalizations about As... Read more

  • So much for daily entries

    7/19/2014 2:39:52 PM, by MIZJLYNN1973

    HAH! But at least I am still trying. So here is my entry for today. I am so frustrated with myself. Somehow I have allowed myself to fall way off track over the last couple of months. and the scale is showing progress in the wrong direction. THE. WRONG. DIRECTION. Seriously, this is sooo not...

  • Day 4: 4 mile run in an hour, new personal best

    7/19/2014 8:34:41 AM, by MEZZED

    Woke up early today, forced myself to go back to sleep since it was only 2 am. Woke up again at 5 am, took measurements, decided to go running. Watched the sunrise during the run, I thought that I should have brought my camera or used my cell phone to capture the moment but instead, I just let... Read more

  • Day 3: Sore

    7/18/2014 7:14:30 AM, by MEZZED

    Realistic weight loss or gain? The running that I did yesterday should have been fine but I had to work on shoulders & lat pull downs which indirectly resulted in muscle gain? Muscle weighs more than fat, I know this. Perhaps, next time, like today, I just jump rope and or run. No weight traini... Read more

  • Day 2 of my brother's vegan based regimen

    7/17/2014 11:11:44 AM, by MEZZED

    I feel like I have so much energy that I had to stop myself from exercising after running a mile in under 13 minutes, walking for another mile afterwards, jump roping for another 30 min, using a foam roller, stretching, then looking at the 35 lb kettle bell literally calling out to me to use it. ...

  • Measuring Success besides the Scale pt. 2

    7/16/2014 10:46:07 AM, by KIRASDREAM

    For situations like these, really puts things in prospective. For the next month or so, I'm not trusting the scale at all since it has been fluctuating from 131 lbs to 136 lbs. I have been working out regularly and even increased intensity, but due to stress of work and wedding it's been a little ... Read more

  • 11 stones = my weight goal for Restart 3.0

    7/16/2014 7:46:49 AM, by MEZZED

    11 stones (154 lbs) is my new weight goal It should take a year or less to lose all the weight (maybe a lot more, I've been carrying all this excess for more than 20 years now, I'm sure it should take more time but I'm on a roll so far!) I'm not exactly sure what happened with Restart 2.0 ... Read more

  • Just got back from being in Thailand for 2 months, lost 1 1/2 stones!

    7/16/2014 7:38:50 AM, by MEZZED

    A stone is approximately 14 lbs multiplied by 1.5 = 21 lbs lost. My trip to Thailand was from May 1 to July 6th with a small jaunt in Vietnam and Japan. The purpose of the trip was to obtain experience & a certificate for teaching English to speakers of other languages. After failing a ma... Read more

  • Been lost awhile

    7/15/2014 1:56:42 PM, by K1TT3N

    I am still here .... sorta lost for awhile .. I have been lurking here and there but not tracking. There has been so much going on and so many bad days that I have just been in hiding per say. The CHF is back and this time I have the added bonus of my O2 dropping so now I am on oxygen when I am... Read more

    7/14/2014 3:30:17 PM, by MIZJLYNN1973

    I really want to develop the habit of blogging daily. Not so much that others can read what I have written, because I don't have many friends on here at all...but moreso to document this journey of mine, a true document so that I can see my progress. So today has started out to be a good day so... Read more

  • July 12, 2014 - 56 pounds Gone

    7/12/2014 3:29:37 PM, by MRSWHITEWOLF

    Hello everyone! I am 56 pounds gone (57 by sparks because at one point I was 233). I have 69 more pounds. I hope to be 150 by September 25, but that is a pretty tall order. I am 176 right now. That would be 26 pounds. Realistically, would be somewhere in the 158-160. If I can make it to 150's... Read more

I started using the Slendertone ab cardio schock blet I got a couple of months ago before my routine and a valero neoprean belt in my walks, and it is really working because I am very very sore. I thought th... Read more

  • Anybody Out There?!?

    7/8/2014 11:03:22 PM, by ROCKYJAY

    I thought it was time I dusted off the cobwebs from this blog and do a bit of updating. I've been making healthy lifestyle changes since December. I'm down about 28 pounds. I know that's great but I know I can do so much better. I've been struggling with the same 10 pounds for the past 2 months.... Read more

    7/8/2014 11:41:30 AM, by MIZJLYNN1973

    I sat here and read a few of my previous entries, and I realize that this blog can actually be a form of self encouragement... GO FIGURE! Sometimes, I even amaze myself at the discoveries that I make! But seriously. I realize that there will be times of failure, because I am not per... Read more

  • Busy Weekend

    6/30/2014 7:07:03 PM, by JLANIJ

    I took a 1/2 day off on Friday to go hiking with a friend. Of course with unpredictable Oregon, even the end of June isn't safe from rain, and we got rained on, but we did about 4.2 miles along the Sandy River Delta. That night I went to a paint and drink wine class where they teach you how to pai... Read more
