I'm still here. Where will I be at this time next year? I will be even lighter than today. I am getting married next year, and want to start out on the right foot this time.

I am doing Wii Fit Plus exercise, along with walking and LARPing

In answer to Are you Still With Us?

The answer is YES!

Question # 2...where will you be at this same time next year? I hope more healthy and to have met my goal weight.

Question 3...how do you plan to march forward toward your goals? Zumba, Wii Exercise, Portion control and controlling sugar and fat intake. Above all, I need to change my thought process and take care of myself more.

Another reminder that we have about 4 weeks until our 'class reunion' date (Jan. 10-16). If I would be consistent, and focused, that would mean a 4 pound loss for me - and with a four pound loss that would be only 12 pound loss since I joined this team. BooHoo - but without Sparking for the past 3 years, I KNOW I would be 12-24 pounds heavier. Don't even want to think about going back there - so I'm focusing on the next 4 weeks and the possibility of losing something - at this point, anything that I can lose will be welcome!!

And what about you???

Thanks for the info on the Paleo diet. It reminds me of the Diet Based on Blood Type - diet for O blood type. O is the original blood type. It predates farming of grain.

I do not endorse, nor do I follow any specific diet. Just spreading some education! I'm on the "Eat Less, Move More" plan myself. emoticon

I'm in on this challenge BTW. I started a challenge in another group. Simply to NOT gain any weight between T-Day and New Years.

Right now, I'm not focusing on weight as much as focusing on weight training, including Highland Games specific training, and getting back on track with my cardio. I'm hoping that with doing the above, the weight will fall into place.

Eileenv.. Paleo is a diet that is supposed to mimic what the cavemen (Paleolithic) ate. No processed foods.
From Wikepedia: "The Paleolithic diet consists of foods that can be hunted and fished, such as meat, offal and seafood, and can be gathered, such as eggs, insects, fruit, nuts, seeds, vegetables, mushrooms, herbs and spices.[1][3] Some sources advise eating only lean cuts of meat, free of food additives, preferably wild game meats and grass-fed beef since they contain higher levels of omega-3 fats compared with grain-produced domestic meats.[1][3][60][64] Food groups that advocates claim were rarely or never consumed by humans before the Neolithic (agricultural) revolution are excluded from the diet, mainly grains, legumes (e.g. beans and peanuts), dairy products, salt, refined sugar and processed oils,"

My goal for the next six weeks is eating Paleo and therefore feeling better and losing 4 pounds.

My goal for the next 6 weeks is very simple and very focused. I need to be able to walk 10 miles by tomorrow, 12 miles by the end of December, and 13.1 miles on January 12, 2013 in order to meet my goal for 2012 of training for a year to walk a half marathon. Small deal for some, big deal for me as I have several types of arthritis as well as bulging discs, damaged nerves, and degeneration in my back. My furthest walk so far on Saturdays has been 9.37 miles two weeks ago. I'm going to do this. It's my 3 year Sparkaversary celebration!

Yes, thank you Lillybelle!

I'm in a little of a dejavu point in my life. Before I joined SparkPeople, I had started my journey by focusing on exercise before journaling or calorie counting. I wanted to have that as a firm habit. I lost momentum this year but have started again to make exercise a habit. I now have seven weeks in a row of a minimum of 4x/week of minimum of 30 min/day exercise. I'm only one day away of making it eight. My plan is to keep this up and in January start journaling food again & counting calories.

Between now & January, besides keeping up the exercise, I want to focus on getting a habit of drawing & weekly art work.

“Sometimes it's the smallest decisions that can change your life forever.” Keri Russell. This is the motivational quote in my status today, and it says so much with so few words.

I admit I haven't been very active on SP of late, and my food tracking has fallen off. It's mostly because I no longer have my own office at work and I really don't like people reading over my shoulder. It's an excuse though, and not a very good one.

So I resolve to track my food again...ALL my food! I resolve to do better on my 8 glasses of water every day (I recently dropped down to 5 glasses a day). Most of all, I resolve to get my butt out of the chair and moving!!

I have lost a total of 36 pounds since starting SP. Right now I weigh the lowest I have in 10 years. I even lost a pound over the Thanksgiving holiday! I can do this...heck WE CAN DO THIS!!!

Thanks for the reminder! 6 weeks until 2013. I want to get a head start on my goals for next year, too. I'm moving next week, so my eating and exercise habits have taken a real dive. My work out buddy didn't quite work out. We were polar extremes in political views and it was best to try to remove that stress from my life. I don't like to argue politics!

Thanks for getting us started Lilybelle. I hope to have some more refined goals to post her next week, but if I don't you will know it is because I'm waiting for my internet hook up.
