    I havent posted any, I always get side tracked. But iv lost 9 pounds! Im pretty happy about it. I think it has something to do with my new gluten free diet, my docter told me to try it to see if it stops my stomache pains, but I still havent gone gluten free shopping yet so I have limited food choise. So far its stoped so I probley have that diasease, what ever its called, the gluten intolerant one. It sucks, but im so happy! No more stomache pains and im looseing weight woohoo!

    So I got down to 197 before Christmas but I've put on a few pounds...back up to the 200 ish mark. Sigh...darn Christmas goodies lol. I've made it to the gym twice this week and ran 2km yesterday. Not overly impressive but it's a start. I'm going to sign up to a fitness class that they offer at my university which is 50 minutes 2x a week. I figure that is a great way to make sure I get my butt to the gym.

    Shandasu, congrats on your weight loss! I just wanted to add a note in on the gluten free/celiac diet. My dad just recently went on the gluten free diet and with the shopping we've discovered that you really have to watch the sugars and fats that are in the gluten free products. For sure some are healthy but others seem to try to make up for the lack of gluten with other not-so-healthy ingredients haha. So when you do get around to the gluten free shopping, keep an eye out for the ingredients so you can keep up with a healthy diet! Just because it's 'gluten-free' doesn't automatically mean healthy like many people think! Good luck

    I'm with Cinder, joining late and all.

    Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 179lbs
    Goal: 150lbs--Lose 30 lbs by July 1, 2013 OR until it "feels right" (Maybe 20lbs gone will be enough XD) I don't really have a specific goal, so I kind of just picked a random number.

    I'm doing this for my riding and for my health! I feel that I ride better when I weight a bit less.

    I used to be SUPER active, playing sports for at least a couple hours every day, but over the past few years I've grown to sort of dislike exercise (except riding!). Still, I'm going to try to find activities that I enjoy. It being the dead of winter doesn't help much, but for now I can focus on my diet (the foods I'm eating, not like "I'm on a diet"), which seems to be working out pretty well.

    I have this idea to start taking my horse jogging in-hand, since for me exercise is much more fun when I'm doing it with someone else. It wouldn't be bad for her training either!

    After another useless week, I'll now be back on track.

    I found a place 2 miles down the road to keep Bandit.. so now I'm back to muckin out and carting things through muck :) There is no workout like pushing wheelbarrows through mud to the muckpile and the paddocks with hay. Back to carrying big buckets of water :) No more driving for over a half hour to get there, and I'll now be able to walk down with with the baby in the buggy.

    I planned to be gym bound tomorrow, but have a visit from Aunt Flo.. which I'm actually delighted about as was 3 days late and have been feeling sick all week!! Never have I been so happy to get a visit! *big sigh of relief*

    LOL!!!!! I would be happy too!!!

    The girls are going back to school tomorrow. ( I'm literally dancing for joy).
    I find when kids are home...structure goes right out the window. Eating takes a nosedive ( especially during winter) and excercise is almost non-existant...except for the occasional walk.
    Tomorrow I'm going to focus on my well being. Start eating salads and working out.

    Structure, that's exactly what I need. I'm glad I'm starting school again next week! On the plus side, having a lot of free time does allow me to plan and cook my meals properly.

    Down 6lbs from when I first posted! It's probably just water weight, but that's ok. At least it's something.
    179/173/150 (That is, starting weight, current weight and goal weight)

    Okay crazy times have been crazy!

    Since I last posted (I think), I have yoyo'd at a random weight, won 3rd place in capstone competition, got a fulltime job for when I finish school, finished college , spent 3 days cleaning my little sisters room + helping mum with house, did some super celebrating during the holidays, got sick, brought in the new year sick, went to work Jan 2 (still sick at that point). I got better (kind of) and now the boyfriend is sick and I get to care for him :P Somewhere in there I busted my wrist and its still healing.

    I started yesterday with tracking my calories and wowzers ate too much, but I have been doing better today.

    Does anyone have any experience/exercises with weak wrists? My one wrist I think I put too much weight on / leaned on it and ouchie, it is being painful and has been for a week or so. I should probably go to the doctor this time.

    On a side note, we got a dehyrdator for christmas and we can now make our own jerky and dried fruit. The dried apple rings are so delicious!
