Well.....I haven't started on my excercises yet. I have a big test to do tomorrow (practical and written) for the ambulance. So...after I write this I'm going to hide in the closet (away from kids and husband) to do some studying.
Halloween has been tortorous for me....girls came home with bags of goodies...so I've been studying with making trips to the 'goody bag'. I've also have came down with a headcold...and now my head feels like it's going to explode. UUUGGGHHHHH.....I feel like I'm going through the wringer of some kind. I hope next week will be better
Corporal....it's good to see somebody who's closer to my age. I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one 'competeing' with the younger girls on here.
Anyways...hopefully I can start on my excercises soon.
Good luck to all of you......

I want in on this. I have normally been pretty active and workout but I had to take a few months off from everything because I had cartilage inflammation behind my kneecap. November will be a rocky start off for me (traveling a lot) but I plan to change my eating habits and get in as much exercise as possible. My stats:

Age: 36 (37 on 11th)
Height: 5'5"
Weight: 150
Goal: Closer to 130...mostly just to be fit, trim, and back in my size 8 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.
Welcome!!

Yes, I always do much better when I record everything that I eat. I like to use My Calorie Counter (online) because you can enter custom entries if you can't find the exact food item you ate in there huge database. It lets you really track exactly what you are eating beyond just calories, including protein, carbs, fiber, sugar, salt, and more.

For me, really keeping my SALT intake low makes a big difference. And it's amazing how once you cut salt out of your diet, how salty things taste when they are loaded with salt!

I am not a personal trainer or nutritionist by any means, but did I read you post correctly Corporal? You are skipping lunch on some days???? You do not want to do that. That is the reason you have plateaued. If you skip a meal, it kills your metabolism and your body tries even harder to hang onto those pounds.

Ask any trainer or nutritionist: The best strategy is to eat small meals every 2 to 3 hours. Once you go longer than that without food, is when it slows your metabolism. Yes it takes a ton of planning to have something to eat ready to go (even during work during the day) but it really, really keeps your metabolism revved up by eating small meals throughout the day.

So please stop skipping lunch! Hungry tummies are no good and just leads to binging on things because you're so hungry and your blood sugar is low.

But success on the caramels!! Some of my biggest downfalls are anything sweet (cookies, cake, brownies, etc) and CHEESE and regular cereal. Yum. While cheese isn't necessarily bad, it does need to be eaten in moderation because it does have fat in it.

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!!
Hey, it's okay! You are not always going to have a perfect day.

One thing that really helps me, even if I "mess up" for one meal, you can always "start over" for the day, right after! It doesn't have to be a new day to "start over"! It helps get rid of that "Oh, I just over-ate at this meal so I might as well eat some cookies too ... or I might as well not eat healthy the rest of the day". Because you can start over at any moment!

Personal trainers are awesome. I've worked with quite a few of them and it is always wonderful to let someone else plan your workouts for you and plan our meals for you (it makes it easy!). And of course, encourages you to follow the routine because you have to report back to your trainer.

Hey now! Losing weight at ANY age is a success!

And ick. I know the feeling of studying. I just finished 8 years of college in May. And it feels so nice to be done! However for me, my studying was most effective when I gave myself a break even to go for a 15 minute jog as a study break. Does wonders for focus! And you are working out too!

Dang. Feel better! Being sick is no fun. Even more important to eat healthy (lots of protein and fruits/veggies!) to help yourself get over that cold.

You are SO close! Good job!

Yes, report to us. We will keep you in line!

And make sure to say where your calories are coming from. Obviously, if you ate one McDonalds Big Mac per day (and that's it), you'd stay in your 1,500 calorie range. Obviously, that wouldn't be healthy. Eat lots of fruits and veggies, whole wheat (slowly digestable and full of fiber), and a good amount of protein. And of course, water, water, water!
