Which of the following would make you feel happiest?

Reaching my goal weight
Going on a dream vacation
Getting a raise and/or promotion
Retiring
Spending more time with friends or family
Landing my dream job
Becoming a parent
Getting married
None of the above



I can choose a couple of them from above. Reaching my goal weight....8 more pounds to go. Having another vacation...this time at the lake with the kids and grandkids.

I don't have access to water sports although I love to swim. Unfortunately, to swim in the pool in my complex I would have to share time with at least 20 people in a small pool. Yuck. No thanks.

It depends on rather I can make what I am interested in or if I can alter what I already have.
I did purchase a new exercise outfit in January. My old one has been fixed so many times there was no way to fix it again, and to my surprise I had to move down a size. Hurray. emoticon

Do you buy new clothes throughout your weight-loss journey?





I do because it is a way of rewarding myself and it makes me feel great about myself and my accomplishments.

I have a bathing suit but don't know if it still fits. It may be a bit big but I have no problem going swimming because I swim with my grandchildren and they don't care if I have cellulite or am overweight. Ya gotta love kids!

Do you avoid wearing a swimsuit for fear of being judged?

Yes
No


No.....but I still don't feel comfortable about wearing a bathing suit quite yet. I have a few more pounds to loose before I will feel good about myself in a bathing suit. Maybe by summer....I'm working on it.

What do you think about the ''barefoot'' running trend?

I'm a believer!

I don't buy into the hype
I prefer shoes!
Sounds painful or dangerous

It believe it to be another option but with any running.

I'm a morning person. If I don't exercise in the morning I won't exercise. I have tried time and again but it's a no go once I've worked 9 hours that's it I'm done. So from approximately 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m is my time to workout.

How do you feel about morning workouts?

They're the best way to fit it in
They're difficult, but worth it
They're impossible for me
They help me start my day on the right track
They're only for ''morning people''
Other



I love my morning workouts. I can get them done and out of the way. Then the rest of the day is mine to do what has to be done.

How often do you eat a meal or snack before you workout?


Always

Sometimes

Never


I never eat before I work out, well not right before, I don't like that "full" feeling

No...I tried it but my ankles aren't as strong as they used to be. I prefer walking. emoticon

Is running part of your fitness routine?




Yes, it's my go-to exercise


Yes, but only occasionally


No, but I used to run for exercise


No, I prefer other activities


No, I refer other activities. But I have thought about trying it. Maybe when I lose more weight, I don't know!!

Did you ask friends or family members to support and motivate you to lose weight?


No, I have kept my goals private.

No, but I do plan to ask them for support.

Yes, I asked but they don't help much

Yes, they help me stay accountable and on track.


No, I kept mine private. My mom knows but that's all!

When you indulge in a rich or high-calorie food, how do you usually feel?

Indifferent
Good--It's all about moderation!
Guilty--I shouldn't eat that stuff
Depends on how well I ate recently
Something else not listed here


I don't indulge very often so I don't feel guilty about it but I also think it's all about moderation.

Not exercising because I know IF I do go over on calorie intake I won't have the backup burned calories to charge against the overage. But then I have a tendency to beat myself up.

What makes you feel more guilty?

Eating "badly" for a day or meal
Not exercising for a day
Both
Neither



Neither for me....I think we all have bad days from time to time or not able to do exercises everyday due to unexpected circumstances. I just get myself back on track as soon as possible.

Hmm, to some degree. I have neuropathy in my feet and sometimes I have shooting pains in them as though the nerves have awakened and decided to run a test or two. I also have RLS but to me it's not really painful just annoying as all get out at night.

How often do you go out to eat?

At least once per day
A few times per week
A few times per month
Only on special occasions


I would have to say once every few months. Usually when we are on the road travelling.

No, I would not have surgery. I've heard of too many things going wrong!! I work with a lady that had it done over a year ago. She's lost 50 pounds, but she has not lost in a while, she says she's been so bad with her eating. That's what you have to do, make it a life style change!!! I also gave her some of my watp dvd's I got sick of and she has not used them yet!! Oh well!!

No

That's not an option for me.....I don't like going to the hospital and I only go to the Dr.s when I'm really sick or for my yearly check-ups.
