    I had lost 40 lbs before on weightwatchers, but then I gained it all back and started eating not healthy again.

    It's funny that I saw this today, because I had decided to start loosing weight again this morning!! Haha
    Awesome! We've got a great age variety going here!

    And it goes to show that you can "fall off the train" and end up back where you started, but it is never too late to get back on!

    It's all about a "lifestyle change" and a "lifestyle committment". I much prefer those words and that way of thinking, than "diet".

    ON weightwatchers, I was eating more than I did before! Having the points really helped give you a limit and a way to watch what you eat

    Definitely got me eating different things(:

    Only less than a week until my big start up! I'm actually quite looking forward to it. It'll feel good to start getting good workouts in.

    Welcome!

    1 to 2 pounds per week is the healthiest, long-term method to losing weight healthy and keeping it off. If you lose too quickly, it's usually because you cut your calories too much and your body will "notice" you are losing weight. From a primative survival standpoint, your body doesn't want to lose weight! It wants to keep extra around "just in case" you are ever in a starving situation.

    But if you slowly, and carefully, lose 1 to 2 pounds a week, you are more likely to keep it off because you haven't lost it rapidly.

    And keep in mind that if you build/gain any muscle during weight loss, it might not seem like you lost any weight at all on the scale. Muscle weighs more than fat. So if you lose 1 pound of fat, you may very well gain 1 pound a muscle, which would make you feel like you didn't lose any weight at all. This is where how you feel in your clothes and how you look (and actual body measurements) can show the change -- not the scale.

    Welcome!

    Yes, when I was in school (just graduated this past May) I was a horrible munchies-eater when studying. Plus you are just sitting around when you are studying.

    Okay well yesterday was the official "start" day.

    I will admit that I did not go get a gym membership yesterday. However, I did go out to the barn after work and froze my butt off riding Red around a bit instead. Even took him for his very first "after dark" ride, just a quick mile+ down the road and back. The headlights from the cars were a bit scary for him, but he managed.

    But today we got snow. Boo. And it's still snowing. It's not horribly cold but I always worry about things being slick. So after work I will promptly go to the gym and get my membership and get a workout in!

    I won't lift any weights tonight, just do some good cardio, because I'll be doing a weight lifting class and a step class with a friend tomorrow morning. And I"m sure I'll be sore as heck.

    Yesterday I started making myself eat "right" and been doing good so far! It's a horrible place where I work because someone always brings in sweet goodies. I have not eaten a one though! Proud of myself.

    How's everyone else doing on day 2?

    I'm in

    My start 'stats'...
    Age: 54
    Height: 5'4
    Weight: don't know...won't tell
    Goal weight: One size smaller jeans

    I'm starting tomorrow, November 3rd. DH taught me a diet trick called, "Diet Awareness Week". You do this the week before you start your diet, and you examine what and when you are consuming. I changed from last Fall. Lost weight in the summer, 2011, starting gaining back with stupid caramels in the Fall!! THIS year, caramel rationing, smaller dinner portions, skipping lunch when I'm working in the back yard (horses, chickens, lawn/garden work in the 5 acres) and don't want it.
    I had my annual "Salsa Party" last Saturday--party and big bonfire--and I haven't eaten more than 10 caramels INCLUDING during the party--THAT's success. I've been sitting at the same weight/size since I dropped a size earlier this year, and I've plateaud

    On with our success.

    I'm totally not doing well at all!!! Yesterday my work held a big lunch for our department and our construction contract crews.... Can I say FOOD!?!! It doesn't help I am now living on my own and when I get offered free food I get excited. Tonight I'm going to the bar to celebrate my birthday and my cousins and tomorrow I'm off to the rodeo..

    Monday my coaches are back and done showing so I will be back at the barn 2-3 times a week and I'm looking at a gym my aunt joined that has a personal trainer on staff for free all day every day until 11pm.

    Next week will be better...

    Hope everyone else is doing better then me!!
