Way to get back on the horce, NancyDru!

I have been increasing my cardio from 35 min twice a week and 45 min once a week to 45 twice and 60 once.

I have been eating horribly, though (new job, driving instead of taking public transport, state fair, lots of parties, etc). However, I went to Aldi and stocked up on fruits and veggies and healthy snackable foods, and I also organized my freezer and pantry, so hopefully seeing the good choices will motivate me to cook more.

I promised myself I would post once a week to keep myself in this. I fell off the wagon for a few days (well 5 days). I have gained a few good habits over the last month which stuck (ate oatmeal for breakfast, had a whole grain cookie with 1% milk when craving sweets. whole grain crackers and light cheese for snack) but I didn't exercise in the mornings in accordance with my plan and ate out at restaurants. Still I lost a half a pound so even though it will be harder to make my end goal for the month I can still get close!

It was work that got in the way, I worked about 70 hours last week (and I have a 2 hour commute). I'll be working from home soon, so that will help!

Next week regardless of work I am going to log every day and follow my exercise plan and log my food and I'm looking to see what good habit I'm supposed to work on gaining today.... I will do it.

The habits are really useful, I resisted a bit first and realized they really help most when I fall off the diet wagon because I've found things I really like that I wouldn't have tried otherwise (Like trader joe's instant maple and brown sugar oatmeal, I hate oatmeal but it's soooo good).

Well I am back up to 193, even though I have been adding cardio time and eating better. I started a new job and there is a fitness program and weight loss program. I can join in about a week and it will cut off $20 from my insurance bill. Hopefully it will be of some help.

Hi BabyPop!

About 5 years ago I lost 30 pounds(over the last 5 years I gained it back). The reason I mention this is because after I had lost the first 15 pounds I suddenly had a very long period (2 and 1/2) months where I didn't loose any weight and I actually gained about 5 pounds back. I was doing everything right and even started doing it more (eating less and jogging even more) which didn't help, I felt stuck. So I just tried to eat healthy and keep Jogging despite the plateau. Then one week right after that time of the month I stepped on the scale and what felt like over night my weight had dropped 5 pounds and from then on the weight started coming off again.

If you keep perservering and don't give up then you'll make it through this!

Hi!

I want to weigh 144 pounds by the 31st of August. To do this I want to:
1) Row 6 times a week and in accordance with my training plan.
2) Each week follow the healthy habits provided by SparkPlan (even if I disagree with wanting to or their necessity)
3) Track my food
4) Actually check in on this board to report my results and how I am doing at maintaining at least once a week (instead of committing to something and then fading away into nowhere and not doing it).

Babypop, ya sure its not muscle gain from working out harder? I'm in the same boat, I've been gaining more so than losing in the past month. Good luck.

Well, weigh-ins for me are on Tuesdays and every single f'cking week, I am up a pound. How the crap is that possible. I am eating better, for the most part, and exercising more. This is really frustrating. I'm freaking out b/c I'm in the 190s again. Grrr.

Well I am leaving at the end of this month to Israel for the semester, and I want to be at my goal weight of 140 by the time I leave, I only have three pounds to go, however, weightloss has been slow and I would LOVE to be in the 130's for the first time since middle school, so I guess that is my goal. To be 139 by the end of the month, totally can happen. I will accomplish this by healthy eating and moderate exercising. I would really like to exercise more so hopefully that will be accomplished as well!

Well, I have *really* slacked off on my eating habits this year. My schedule has been really hectic and I start a new job next Monday. My 30th b-day is next month, I have a wedding to attend in October, and I am maid-of-honor in a wedding next spring.

My goal for August is to go from 189.6 to 191.6 to 183.6. I will be diligent about eating better, and will allow myself only one day per week to go over on my calories. I know I shouldn't do this but feel like sice I've been going WAY over lately, if I give myself one day, I'll be more apt to keep to it the other 6 days.

I will try to come up with some more specific goals later in the week.

Use this thread to help you either continue momentum you've built, or to brush yourself off and push forward if you found yourself reverting to old bad habits. Use this month to build on your strengths and to challenge yourself on your weaknesses as we reach our goals together!

Established Punk Rock slash and burners should know the drill. For the unacquainted and newbies, I'll fill you in on the short version of this thread.

*Pick a few goals for the month (or even just one day or week at a time)
*Try to have at least one goal that isn't just the broad, "I want to lose x lbs this month." (e.g. getting enough water, stretching, doing x minutes of cardio activity x days per week, handling stress better etc.)
*Here's the tricky part: also try to include a detailed plan of how you will attain your goals. (e.g., if your goal is, "I want to refrain from emotional eating this month," then your specific plan could be, "Instead of eating through my emotions, I'll drink a tall glass of water, and work on a craft project or some other creative endeavor, and post on the SP message board for support.)
*Finally, think of a little reward you'd like to treat yourself to at the end of the month for reaching your goal.

Also, check previous "Mini-Goals" threads to see kind of how they work - it's very informal, and please check up on each other at least once a week! It's how we keep one another motivated.

Finally, here is a corny thing I posted in another thread and have posted in my bedroom and on my desk at work. Please copy it, save it on your desktop, print it put, and put it wherever you can see it if you think it will motivate you!

JUST FOR TODAY: I will live through this day only. I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching goals or try to overcome all of my problems at once.

I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

JUST FOR TODAY: I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine.

JUST FOR TODAY: I will accept what is. I will face reality. I will correct those things I can correct, and accept those I cannot.

JUST FOR TODAY: I will improve my mind. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration. I will not be a mental loafer.

JUST FOR TODAY: I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I'll not speak ill of others. I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking.

Just for today, I will refrain from improving anybody but myself.

JUST FOR TODAY: I will do something positive to improve my health. If I'm a smoker, I'll quit. If I am overweight, I will eat healthfully -- if only just for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it's only around the block.
