Although I would like to take my goal setting offline as much as possible. Spending everyday doing a bunch of health accounting is not something I plan on doing. But I will be doing some basics like tracking my weight, measurements and feelings each week overall and as I get motivated to do more I will. I find I get stuck down internet rabbit holes and...

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 10:07:30 EST Let's be support sisters? :) Fairly new to this site and definitely new to this SparkTeam. I would LOVE to have a close knit of people who are about supporting each other; I don't want to have to go about this alone anymore. I want to feel sexy and confident in myself, as we all do, and I'm ready to be those things as well as happy.

I am less motivated to go to the gym because of this but I still want to work out. So I was wondering what people think about those workout videos. <BR> <BR> Currently looking at: <BR><BR>ess_articles.asp?id=1730 <BR> and <BR><BR>ess_articles.asp?id=1745 <BR> <BR> But that would just be one day of working out.

But the numbers they give you to keep in between, are they here to help me lose weight? I mean, there is a specific range I need to keep in to stay the weight I am, is this the range I need to stay in to lose my weight? Fri, 20 Jul 2012 00:50:07 EST Cardio Vs. Weight Training Which do you think is best: more cardio, more weight training or a mixture of both? <BR> <BR> I would love to get input!

I am Mom of 4 girls, ages 10,8,6, and 4. I want them to be healthy and know how important it is as a Mom to have those 30-40min a day for me. (So one day when they are Mama's too, they do it.) I have a great family and my husband is my rock! He thinks I look good no matter what, so I am doing this for me and no one else. <BR> I have always had ... Sun, 1 Jul 2012 14:36:58 EST New here... Hello there. I'm new to this group but not to SparkPeople, although I've been inactive for quite a while. I've always loved pin-up style pictures. I kept saying when I reached a certain weight I would get my picture done but the scales always went the wrong direction. Well a local photographer, who specializes in pin up style photos, ran a special that was just too good to pass up. Soooo on July 26th I will be having a 2 hour photo session. :) I'm definitely going to eat right and exercise be... Fri, 29 Jun 2012 04:23:23 EST Hi y'all! Hi! Sorry, I posted this twice accidentally and don't see a way to delete a post. I've been using SparkPeople for about a week now, but I'm just now getting into the forums and discussions. I've struggled with weight for most of my life (you know, the usual story, overweight when I was younger, teased a lot), and I suffered from an eating disorder when I was in middle school. I'm generally confident and happy now, but there are just some problem areas I really want to target, and I want to ju... Tue, 27 Mar 2012 17:51:45 EST Hi Hi I hope to have fun in this group Sun, 8 Jan 2012 23:12:04 EST Hello! Hello. I would say one of my weight loss bucket list items is to do a pin up shot, but not at the weight I am now. I have a long journey ahead, but I'm glad to be on it, and to be here. Sat, 24 Dec 2011 13:31:17 EST Hello! whenever anyone tells me that I look pin up, I feel incredible. Love the look. Love the clothes!

Thu, 15 Dec 2011 17:34:23 EST Back on the Wagon! Hello! <BR> I've been a memeber of Spark People for almost a year now, and after initially starting out really strong and losing almost 30lbs, I kind of let my brain get all mushy and start thinking that I could go back to my old habits without gaining any weight back. Yeah...right! <BR> So now I'm slapping myself across the face and coming back to reality. I started bellydancing classes, which I love but struggle with because of all this extra "fluff!" I'm going to stay with bellydancing, bu... Mon, 14 Nov 2011 10:43:32 EST Beating that little cloud of doubt with.....

I have this lovely pin stripe corset that I have never been able to wear. I got it about a year and a half ago, unfortunately it was one size too small. I got it anyway in hopes I would lose weight.

I love vintage clothes (well, vintage everything really), but it's so hard to buy anything in my size that I am constantly disappointed. I'm trying to learn how to sew, but I stink at that, probably because it's so hard for a beginning sewer to sew clothes that fit a lumpy, potato-shaped body. <BR> <BR> Which is not to say I don't love my body. It is pretty amazing after all, in spite of the neglect it's suffered in recent ye... Sun, 20 Mar 2011 16:00:13 EST Where to shop for sexy clothes?!

It's because for the past month, I'm doing strength training at the gym. I begin with cardio for 30 minutes, then I do several strength machines for my arms, legs, abs and back for another 30 minutes. <BR> Not only have I not lost weight or inches - I've noticed that my arms are getting more muscular (a plus), my legs are slowly shapi...
