Hi everyone!! Daily Chat is a cool thread. What's going on out there today/ What are the struggles or challenges that may be keeping you from committing to your goals? For me, it is scheduling. It is tough to fit in a daily workout. Also snacking! I run around tending to the families needs and sometimes I am guilty of grabbing that PopTart packet off the counter! Let's lean on one another! We can do this!! emoticon

Happy Thanksgiving, my Sexy friends :)

My favorite words to live by:

Live life fully while you are here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect--just an excellent example of a human being. ~Anthony Robbins

Today I am precooking a bunch of healthy meals and dividing them up and refrigerating them to be easily heat up for the next week or so! I have a turkey taco salad made up, a chicken stir fry, marinated chicken tenderloins with a sweet onion sauce, and also bbq chicken tenderloins! I've packed them all up with large portions of veggies! This helps to keep me on track with healthy eating! What are some of your tricks and tips to save time and keep you focused?

Hi ladies!! I'm Heather, one of the team leaders in this group, however I have been missing in action for several months, due to not having a working computer and a very busy season working 7 days a week most weeks! I now, as you can see have a computer, and my schedule has also slowed down for the year, so I hope to get back in touch with those of you I've already spoken to, and get to know the newcomers here! If you have any ideas for challenges and fun ways keep us all motivated, please feel free to share them here!

A little update on me! Due to working like a crazy women for several months, I managed to lose an additional 10 pounds, which I have for the most part maintained, but I can feel them creeping back on lately, so it's time to get active again! This brings my total overall weight loss to approximately 30 pounds down, give or take a pound of two! How is everyone else doing??

~Heather~

Well,,,, no one has really been posting on this team and there is no one willing to pick up where the two "team leaders" dropped off........ soooooooo I decided to pare down the teams I belong to,,,,,,, BUT I hope that we who met on this site will still remain friends! I find the Transformation Team,,,,, and the WooHoo team very motivating and active,,,,, so check them out....... Best of luck to everyone on their journey! .....Adios! (until we meet again) emoticon

Welcome aboard Ginger! We love positive people here........ losing weight and staying focused is not any easy thing,,,,,,, life often gets in the way,,, sometimes people in our lives don't want us to change...... and other times we are afraid of the changes we may see in ourselves,,,, I know because I have experienced all these three...... BUT I have met people here who will encourage and give you moral support,,, even when I don't support myself! LOL

So you are very welcomed,,,, we don't really have a team leader,,,, so I figure we can all be the leaders,, Redfeather boa is always the first one on the team huddle and there is always someone here every so often to give you a pat on the back if you need it!

With that said............

Sexy Mom,,,,,, emoticon emoticon emoticon Way to go !!!! Even though I am sorry that you are suffering with back pain (ouch!) 20 pounds is fantastic!!!! So I applaud you girlie!!!! emoticon Keep up the good work and keep us posted!

My cute little Louisiana Beauty,,, take that weight loss no matter how you got it,,,, maybe there is a lot of stress going on in your life ,,,, but look at you,,,, you are leaning to tame that stress and still lose weight!!!! Congratulations!!! emoticon

I was losing weight steadily but I can feel myself plateauing emoticon I knew that this was going to happen,,,,,, and only 2 pounds away from ONEderland!!!! I want to get out of the 200s ..... I can do it,,,, I can do it..... must not sabotage self,,,,, must not be afraid to see a new me in the mirror...... I can do it and I will do it! emoticon

Have a wonderful week my friends!!!!

As for me, there's been plenty of stress, but in that time, I've managed to lose a couple of pounds! I'm shocked and amazed (and a little confused), but I'll take it! emoticon

Well "HELLO TEAM"!

Is there anyone out there?

I have been doing well,,,, down 33 pounds!!! Hooray! BUT it has not been a picnic,,,, changing my eating habits and moving more,,,, well,,, let's just say that it has not been easy but I had to decide what was more important to me,,,, and I decided that better health,,,, feeling and looking better is what I need and what I am determined to achieve!

Some people have noticed that I lost weight and others have not. BUT as long as I feel good and know that I am making progress,,, that keeps me happy and moving forward.

Take care my friends.... and let me know how you are doing!

WOW! SexyMother,,,,,,,, 9 pounds is pretty darn FANTASTIC!!!!! emoticon I am rooting for you that you will not have to do the surgery........ You are a pretty determined woman and I know that you can and will do it......."feeling" super fat is just a feeling,,,, you lost 9 pounds,,,, let that feeling go,,,, and remember to celebrate how fabulous you are looking losing those 9 pounds! Give yourself some positive reinforcement Sexy girl! Keep it up day by day! emoticon

I will still be coming by,,,, all my friends on here are special emoticon

Beauty,,, how are YOU doing? emoticon I know you were meeting some challenges,,, are things going well for you?

I am happy to report that I have gone from 234 to 212!!!! I feel pretty good in my clothes,,, they are not tight anymore and I am looking forward to entering Onederland...... what is Onederland? It is when you are no longer in you 200s!!! LOL emoticon (opps,,, I have the bad habit of laughing at my own dumb jokes,,,heehee)

But seriously,,, Not ONE person has noticed that I lost any weight,,,, how frustrating is that? Even my best friend has not noticed,,,, opps,,, I am wrong,,,my 15 year old daughter sort of noticed so I guess that counts emoticon Nevertheless,,,, I have to keep on pushing and working towards a healthy weight,,,,,, for some reason,,,, this time I think that I am going to do it!

Have a wonderful week-end ladies!

Good for you Louisianabeauty,,,,, although it is sometimes difficult or uncomfortable,,,, I am glad that you told your cousin that you couldn't bring her to the store,,,, good way to take care of yourself! We women sometimes give and give until we POP! You practiced good self care....... working all day does take it out of you.

Hope you were able to work out,,,,, I did not get up early today to work out,,,stayed up late last night,,, went to work and then to a show (Laguna Pagent of the Masters --- where live people dress up and pose as a famous piece of art),,, it was enjoyable and they had live music,,, which added to the show. Got home at 1 am,,,, then up at 6:30 am,,,,,, so tired and on my way home right now......... Hope you had a good day emoticon

Lily, I'm exactly like you, I start strong, and then I burn out due to stress/time/injury/etc. It's just always something. Just now, I had to text my cousin back to let her know that I COULDNT bring her to the store. I've been working all day, and I need a break. *eye roll*

I hope I am able to work out today. I will probably do something tonight, or just take today as a rest day. It depends on how tired I am later! Plus, it's so hot that it just drains all my energy, lol!

Hope your day is Awesome!

Good for you that you were working out... that is really great......... although I am jealous because I hardly ever take the time to relax in a tub,,,, and I should,,, it is definitely relaxing. emoticon I like to get exercise out of the way,,,,, I am way too lazy to exercise after work emoticon and it is really way too hot emoticon The exercising is new to me,,,, I go a few weeks strong and then I stop,,,, but I think that my problem is that I am doing too much,,,, and then I get burned out.

Well,,,, YOU have a wonderful day today emoticon

I did some exercising, too, this afternoon! They are still out, but will be returning soon, lol. I even had a relaxing soak in the tub! You're lucky to be able to be an "early morning exerciser". I've tried it, and I'm just too uncoordinated, lol! Keep up the good work!

5 pounds is still a lot of weight loss,,,, sometimes we are all a little hard on ourselves,,,, so please don't be discouraged Sharis74,,,,, If you lost 5 pounds in a week,,,,, that is really amazing,,,,,, it is recommended that a person lose between 1 to 3 pounds weekly..... to make a permanent change in weight loss. However, I have seen people lose lots of weight on special diets if they are very overweight. You are doing good emoticon

I have read several articles where it explains that when you change your eating patterns,,,, this causes your body to hold weight because it is a mechanism of self survival...... so instead of losing weight,,, your body holds on to it..... or sometime,,, when you lose a lot of weight quickly or have been losing weight slowly for awhile,,, your body holds on to it,,,, this is sometimes called a plateau and there are other names for it as well.

Either way,,,, I don't think that you are doing anything wrong,,,, just keep it up,,,, watch out for "hidden" calories in snacks,,,, and be patient with yourself ....... Let us know how you are doing in a few days emoticon

Strangest thing...I apparently "left" this group but I don't remember doing it. Very strange.

I don't know what I am doing wrong because I am exercising...a lot and eating relatively healthy but have only lost 5 lbs. It's a little frustrating to be honest. :(

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!!!

Don't forget to congratulate our team mate Nikkig for meeting her goal of losing 15 pound in the month of June!!!

I am still on track,,,,,,, ran 2 miles BEFORE I went to the 4th of July BBQ and then ate very healthy! Did not even touch the dessert table....... and avoided all that sugar!

Have a great week-end! emoticon

Another HOT day in sunny southern California,,,,,,,,, I may go to the beach today,,,, finally I am getting the hang of this,,,, but cautiously,,,, I want a new life for me .... time to toss out the old and start over again,,,,,,,, making the outside of me match the inside of me! LOL

Oh,,, Jillian,,, forgot to tell you yesterday,,,, it is better to be "chugging along" than to be standing still,,,,, so celebrate the little victories as well as the big ones,,,,, we will do it Jillian!

Hope everyone has a great day today!

Jillian,,,,,,,,, you are almost there girl!!!! That is awesome,,, don't get frustrated,,, 3 ounces can be a drink or two,,,, you WILL get to your goal emoticon ....... and we will all cheer you on !!! emoticon

I love it when I feel positive,,,,,,, and motivated,,,, I am finding it easier to make good choices and although it has been hot,,,, I have not exercised but I have kept active with landscaping,,,, cleaning up my front yard,,,, I have lots of tropical trees that need trimming and no money to have someone else do it......... so I am 2 pound down from yesterday!!!! emoticon

Kind of scared that I am going to sabotage myself,,,,, emoticon but have to keep a good outlook and believe in myself....... I CAN DO IT!

Hello sexy ladies!

Honestly,,, I don't feel very sexy but I am working on getting that sexy girl inside of me to be reflected on the outside!

Jillian,,, as usual, you are absolutely right,,,, we are in this together and need to stay focused on getting healthy..... soo very sorry that your uncle died and then to have someone you know in HS die,,, wow emoticon that is really tough! BIG Hugs your way girly emoticon emoticon

But on your same line of thought,,,,, I am with you girl,,,, I don't want to have a sudden heart attack at my age,,,, Jame Gandolfini (Tony from the Sopranos) died at age 51!!! I am older than that but I feel like I have a lot more life to live.... NOPE,,,, that is not going to be me,,,, I don't want my kids crying over me pre-maturely,,,,,, Healthy is the key word for me ,,,,

SexyMom so glad to have you back,,,, the thing is to keep going and never be shy about coming back,,,, life is life,,,, things happen in life,,,,, there is ALWAYS a chance to start again...... any day can be the "1st of January",,,, and let it be that for us today.

ME? I gained 6 pounds on this trip that I went on,,,, lucky for me that I also lost some of that but I am back to fighting with the two pounds that like to come and go,,,,, I know it is water weight,,,, I know I need to do better,,,, and I shall....... I am determined........ It is very HOT emoticon out here too,,,, 104 yesterday! Hard to move... let alone exercise...... Well, my friends,,,, let's do this!

(PS I will try to post some pics of my trip to Temecula, CA,,,, it is about an hour from San Diego and probably about 3-4 hours from Los Angeles)

Hey sexy ladies!!!

Dottie welcome back girly! Glad to see your beautiful face!!! :D
I have a really bad back, some nights I cry myself to sleep. So im with ya hunnie. Truly I know what your going through! But lets do this together shall we!!!


Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I know I haven't been on here EVERY day but I have seen an improvement.
After my uncle died last week, I found out someone I was friends with in HS died this week.. Its been a tough few days. But its proves life is short, she was 28, and the cause is unknown at this point, all we know is that it was "SUDDEN" , I don't want to be 30 and die of a heart attack or stroke. SO FORWARD MARCH! im a FEW flippin ounces from my 2nd mini goal! EEK! BRING IT ON!!!

Come on girls,,,,,,,,,, Ok,,,, so this is the daily chat and I need at least one of you to CHAT with Me!!!!! I am a lonely girl here ......... Jillian,,,, am I going to have to hunt you down???

I have good news ...... I finally broke through and lost another pound,,,,, down 12 pounds only 80 to go! LOL emoticon I am on FIRE emoticon right now and my determination is set........ I am so tired of being the fat girl with the "pretty face",,,,, sound familiar? Tired of not being able to get into cute sexy shorts,,,,,, Tired of wondering if I am going to fit in the movie seats,,,, Tired of only looking at shoes or jewlery because I know the cute clothes won't fit me!!! Tired of having a poor body image,,,,, this is MY life ,,,, and crap happens in life,,,,, the thing to do is face issues straight on and move forward,,,,, problems are going to happen,,,,, expect them! deal with them,,,,, and move on!

I miss you girls! emoticon BUT I understand that life can get busy.

I look forward every day to Red Feather Boa who always seems to make it to the huddle before me! hahaha

Hey,,,, I posted yesterday and I don't see it here,,,, must have forgotten to hit the "post" message button! LOL

Jillian,,, you are doing great girl,,,, I read that exercising is responsible for 20% and diet 80% when it comes to losing weight,,,,,,,,, we exercise in order to speed up the metabolism and to tone our bodies.... so you are still on track ! emoticon

I had out of town guest so eating out was a reality of life,,,, I tried to eat right and keep the portions small but sometimes I just did not do well. So I am back battling 3 - 4 pounds that I gained emoticon

Congrats for being at your lowest weight!!! emoticon

I have read that losing weight takes 20% exercise and 80% diet,,,, you exercise to increase metabolism and tone.

Don't be so hard on yourself Jillian,,, you are moving forward towards your goal to be healthy,,, hang in there!

I was off for a few days,,,,, had out of town visitors so I played tour guide,,, but there are a lot of things to see in California and it was a lot of fun! Unfortunately we ate out all the time so my food choices were good some of the time but not all the time so here I go again,,,,, I gained a few pounds but hopefully can get them off my booty soon. That was the fun part,,,, I had a lot of stress on me lately and I hate it when there is STRESS emoticon both at home and work! emoticon
