sounds like you're putting the effort in! Just remember--skipping meals slows metabolism down, and exercise speeds it up!! Instead of skipping meals, just make sure all your meals are healthy and nutritious. That doesn't mean eating only salads, you need SOME carbs to have energy for exercise...but fast food is bad bad bad!!! Go for a nice walk every day...with your horse or dog, even walking can work wonders!! My dad just lost 70 pounds by walking every morning and eating more small healthy meals a day....rather than a few large meals. ...not really sure how well you usually do but had seen in these few posts that you don't have many snacks and had skipped some meals. YOU CAN STILL EAT!! Just eat HEALTHY and EXERCISE as much as you can. BEST OF LUCK!!!! :) keep up the hard work :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

thank you and when I am 'skipping' it's not to lose weight or starve myself I try not to eat unless I am hungry you know? Thank you so much for the ecoragment . I'm having an uber lazy day but I am hoping to get a little something in today... Probably take my tubby puppy for a walk.

Breakfast: a small barrito with egg, beans, and some hot dog
Snack:None
Lunch: 90 second warm up alfredo pasta stuff??
Snack: not hungry?
Dinner: it's ok 12:50 so not time yet

That makes sense, it's good to eat only when you are hungry...I just know a lot of people who have made the mistake of just using meal skipping as weight loss :/ not a great plan usually!!!

I just wanted to encourage you in your weight loss effort because I am in the same boat. It is not easy but it can be done. It is also good that you have set goals for yourself to look forward to because that helps.

Ooooo just turned 21?! Be really careful with any drinking you do, it'll really set you back in your weight loss goals. Depending on what you're drinking, those things are FILLED with calories. If you're into sweeter drinks, those things can have 400 calories each. Don't let one weekend mess you up, it is okay to indulge, as long as it's not everyday.

Happy birthday! Definitely go out and have fun!

Good luck at your next show. The jump thing you're going to sounds fun!

Thank you I have been HORRIBLE about excerising lately so I really want to jump back onto that wagon but things are getting so busy with school I hope I can still get in a good hour workout. Maybe I can slpit it up to 30minutes in the morning and 30 minutes later on in the day??

Some flirting with the guys at the bar, and mentioning you just turned 21, you'll get plenty of free drinks! I hear vodka is supposed to be low in calories. You could go hardcore and just take shots.

Splitting your workup is actually a really good idea. I can't think of the benefits of it at the moment, but I know that it's supposed to be really good for you. I would do it more often, but my schedule is so weird, I don't have time to.

Hard Liquor is lower in calories then beer or wine, though wine is better for you health wise then Liquor or Beer. Lol

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.
