I wish I could feel like never giving up. Weight and too much of it has been my problem since I was born. My mom use to tell me that the nurses use to tell her that I would need my own cow because I was drinking all of the formula. It feels easier to quit and settle than to keep going. I want to reach that point where I look forward to geting up early and exercising and feeling and seeing the lost weight.

This week is catching up with me! It feels good, but I'm very sore...Two nights of softball down and one more to go tomorrow. It feels good to be out there more often. A year ago, I never thought I'd ever be able to play more than one night per week again. Things are looking up!

So thrilled, yesterday the 4th did not over eat. Thank God !!! my mother even commented on how I did not eat much. When I got up yesterday, I weighted, and I had lost about 1 lb that encouraged me. Things could have been different if I had weighted and gained. I have not over eaten in 16 days. Sure hope I can continue. I know that at some point I will over eat. That is normal.
Need then just to start over with the next meal.
Good luck to all. Glad to have a place to go so I can get encouragement, and tips.

Keep trying, eating less will make you lose weight faster than exercise.
when you exercise, sometimes it will make you weigh more, because muscle weight more than fat.
You can make it.

Getting honest. Haven't entered my weight because I gained to 268.5 when I started exercising, looking for the exercise to take care of all I shoveled in my mouth. I've been down to 262.5, today at 263.5. more later

Thanks Gomarti,
I hope that I will, it has been 7 1/2 days since I have over eaten. Thank God. I do not have my sweet craving like I use to.
This morning I weighted .10 oz more but I am going to try and let it not get me down, your weight does not stay the same all the time, and I know I have not done anything to make it go up, so expecting it to go down.
Have a good day.

Way to go Florence!

After a promising start, (did my dishes, got out the trash and the empty water bottles, picked up the mail),all before work. Mother nature stepped in and we had a horrendous thunderstorm go through where I work and the path to the gym. (Trees and electric lines down, I scooted home the back way.) So no gym tonight, but my streak is still alive, its 50 WORKOUTS in 50 days, I'll just add extra this weekend!

YOU are doing great! one day at a time.......
Had a couple of errands to run tonight. I still made it to the gym! and didn't get fast food after. Had my own premade fast chinese for supper. Saved money, calories and sodium.
Settling down for an early night.

Stoked! Day 7! I didn't want to go tonight, and then I removed all my excuses and went anyway. Made it an easy workout, but I lasted 32 minutes, so that's 297 minutes for me this week! emoticon

it is so hot here today, I sure hope summer is not going to be like this, or worse.
