It was tough today but I was happy! I'm probably a little bit high on my calories for the day and I can feel the munchies setting in haha...I'm dying to eat more but I have nothing with me now that my snacks are gone. Co-worker brought in food of the devil aka timbits, resisting those too! Lol. The scale reads me at 203lbs, yay! Getting close to goal #1 : Under 200.
Make sure you measure everything ;) you never know where its coming off. I usually measure my neck, bust, bicep, waist, hips, thighs, calves, wrists :)

And congrats you are so close! I don't remember ever being below 200lbs. One day I will be though

Goal weight: 170lbs - I was near this a while back...don't know how I let myself get so far away :s . Funny how it just sneaks up on you then one day your jeans don't fit!!

I want to lose weight to feel better about myself. I'm tired of my jeans not fitting me, or having a muffin top, or my shirts being snug. My show jacket is too tight, my breeches are too tight. I'm just sick of it! I know I can do it, it's just a matter of committing to exercise more and eating better (sweets are my weakness.) I'll do my best to update as time proceeds. Good luck everyone!! :)
welcome welcome!

That's most of my motivation too. I get sick of having pudge here and pudge there and not being as comfortable in my jeans as I should.

And as someone else already mentioned, measurements are great! Because you might not be "losing weight" (if you lose fat but gain muscle, which weighs more) but the measurements will reflect the loss! And so will the jeans. Jeans don't lie. Unless they are stretchy, lol

Short term Goal: 225lbs (the lowest I got to when working out 3 times a week and counting calories)
Overall Goal Weight: 180-190lbs

The highest I ever got to was 260lbs, I got down to 225lbs in about 1 year. Then I got some weird armpit infection thing and stopped working out then excuses later back up to 240lbs and have been maintaining that for about half a year or so. I got back down to 230lbs then had a rough month(many birthdays/events and I suck at controlling my eating apparently). I want to get back down to 225lbs then eventually get down to 190lbs or so.

I don't really know how much I weigh this week. I killed myself at horseback riding Friday (lots of no stirrup work), the next day my thighs, calves, back, abs, etc were super sore! And I ended up with a stomach bug :( I am finally recovering almost over it completely.

My game plan is tracking my calories and being conscious about what I eat, because I find this has always helped me. I walk to school every day which is 10 minutes and on top of that I am going to start up my exercise program from my "New Rules of Lifting for Women" book. And do some jogging/hiking/biking/etc something fun on the weekends. The exercise will be slow for now, I am in the last month and a half of my final year of college. So I will need to nail my eating.

Hope its okay I join!
Absolutely okay to join!

I'm going through a super sore phase this week. I could hardly move on Sunday, it was so painful! But it's that "hurts so good" pain becaus you know you are sore because you did something good for your body.

Congrats on the final year of college! I just recetly graduated in May after 8 years of undergad and grad school, and it was amazing to be done!

I hate Tuesdays because it's my "late" day at work. Getting home at 7 PM makes it awful hard to drag to the gym ..... going to try to drag the hubby with me! If he's going, then I of course have to go!

That is a good plan of action!
My school schedule is so awkward right now. I am in class from 11-2 Mon and Tuesday :P I have trouble finding when to eat so I don't starve during class. Oh well not much longer!

Well guys, the 550 under turned into 160 under once I got ahod of some snacks! But still under the 1,500 goal for the day so I'm excited and feel really good about getting back on track this week! And hubby made pizza last night and I resisted! My willpower is coming back YAAAAAAY!!!
No I don't have an iphone They are too expensive when you run the risk of it going swimming down the toilet thanks to a toilet-obsessed 16 month old. I'll be sticking with cheap phones for the next couple years for this reason

I give myself a little ab workout when im sitting down playin with the kids. It's easy to play with a ball, while lieing on the floor - multitasking! :)

HA oh yeah not so good to mix iphones and water! Nice idea for multi tasking though, way to be!

Well guys, I am happy to report that I was under my calorie goal for the SECOND day in a row WOOHOO! I have also somehow dropped 2 of the 4 lbs I had thought I gained back, so maybe they were water weight and all this walking I've been doing got rid of it? Or maybe just the fact that I've been drinking a lot more water this week flushed it out!

How's everyone else doing with their goals?

Hey guys!
Been out for a run the passed two days, i've figured out how to motivate myself when I get in from work! The key is not to sit down haha.
Last nights stats:
Distance - 4.16km
Calories - 240cal
Average pace - 6.38/km
Time - 27.35

Tonight's stats:
Distance - 5.74km
Calories - 334cal
Average pace - 6.24/km
Time - 36.45

Going to give my feet a rest the morrow they've had some bashing lately!

Too lazy to quote and reply to individual posts.

Sugar free jello is a nice snack. 10 calories!

Get your iPhone and don't be afraid of the toilet. Buy a waterproof case! It will also protect the phone from being dropped and all that.

The game consoles have decent workout videos. Why slug to the gym when you can stay home and shake it by yourself? Best thing is that you don't have to drive home sweaty after!

I'm feeling pudgy myself but its hard to squeeze in time for exercise lately. As soon as one test or project is turned in another one becomes imminent!

Today wasn't so good - I was bad and ate a wee bit too much frozen yogurt. I guess it could have been worse but I probably should have had about half of the portion I did. Whoops! And now I'm off to my grandmas house for a family dinner...I just KNOW my calories for the day will be shot. Plus, I can't make it to the gym. On the bright side though, I do have a couple stalls to clean so that's burning some calories. I'm considering riding, but I have a lesson in the morning and then a clinic this weekend and my boy is still coming back from a bad hock injury so I don't want to push him while he's not fit. Maybe he'll get a nice grooming instead :)
