Woot! WTG Barrel!

I still haven't weighed myself BUT I got in an old pair of jeans I've not worn in awhile today and it felt ahhhhmazing! P90X is my new best friend, my very very evil best friend. Adding brazil butt lift to the rotation next week so fair warning, there may be some whining.

Fly - perhaps we could skype and workout together LOL! Stress is a killer for losing. That's usually what does me in. Keep your chin up!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

YES! I would be down!
I can't start until next week I have a major project sitting on my desk and I go to print on the 1st!! Then I will figure out my laptop and it's on. Too fun!
Looking into P90X to see what I'm getting myself into, :)...
It would be funny to start a HF skype workout group!
I've got my major projects done (after this) for the rest of the year so I have to get my hiney in gear so poor Rick can haul me around... He needs work himself, crazy how humans and horses can loose so much muscle so fast. We are both pretty fluffy.
How long before bikini time, LOL!

I just choked down three homemade breakfast burritos, hey they had lettuce on them! Bacon is my ultimate stress buster.
Rick got 6 pears and a couple old apples.

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

Alright with school and Holidays all my free time has been sucked away from me! I have't been super on top of my eating so I have started to re-change that. I have not gotten the chance to step on a scale in awhile but I think if I did I would find I maintained or gained 2lbs or so.

Feeling revved up again and starting to get moving :)

PS. My boyfriend has his first horseback riding lesson Friday! :P !!!! So excited. We were jogging the one day (the day prior I was holding 2-point or doing no stirrup work I forget) and I was a bit sore... He was being a brat/little stinker about it saying I don't use any muscles riding so I told him she can try horseback riding. ^__^

Alright lost my 10lbs I said I was going to lose like last month(s) or so haha. Slow and steady anyone? I realized I don't drink hardly any water (like maybe 1 glass of water a day)... So I upped my water to try and hit the 8 eight-ounce glasses / day minimum. It seems to help, and I am feeling thirsty all the time now.

Apparently when you don't drink enough water your kidneys don't function properly and end up giving the rest of their work to your liver. So your liver can't concentrate on metabolizing stored fat into energy. So it can't work 100% at metabolizing the fat. Also when you don't drink enough water I read that your body will retain/hold onto the water because it doesn't know when it will get more. So once you start drinking steadily, then your body will let go of those water stores.

Again this is just what I read off the internet. But hell water is good for me, and I should consume more! So I am onto my next 10lbs which will take me down to 227lbs.

ANyone want to try that and let me know if its true? If it works or not? Lol

EDIT: or maybe HE drank some water 30 minutes before eating. To fil him up a bit?

Welcome to the forum :) and congrats on your new journey of losing 10lbs.
What is your plan of action for losing weight? Also, if you don't mind me asking, what sort of disabilities do you have? (If you don't want to answer that is fine)

Some things I have been doing are:
- Trying to drink at least 8 eight ounce glasses a day
- Doing extra walking / jogging (park farther away at the grocery store/ get off the bus a stop earlier etc)
- Going for jogs, hikes, bike rides, etc.
- Cut out all juice and soda
- Limit junk food
- Eat smaller portions and making sure to stop when I am full, not when my plate is empty

Other things that might help you:
- Look into joining some sort of sports team
- look into clubs like water aerobics or something
- Get a gym membership and go! :P

Well, I'm not shy about it. My problems have to do with a very touchy back that likes to quirk out on me, degenerative disease in my knees, making it hard to anything with stairs, and the final touch is my feet, sigh, which makes it hard for me to stand for more than a couple of minutes in any one spot. Makes it dang hard to work too., which sucks. SO no jogging, and long walks of more than a block are extremely difficult. Bikes are okay, just uncomfortable, but I have a portable one at home to ride. Between that and my horseriding I hope to gain some headway.
