Motivation Needed!

So I'm 23, 5'4", about 200 lbs. I currently ride my 15.2hh appendix but plan on starting my Arabian gelding next year. Before I do I would love to lose at least 30lbs! I tend to do really good on my diet/excercises plans for about a month or so and then I always crash.
I would really love to have a friend or two with similar goals and maybe close to my age and whatnot to be in contact with daily for motivation/accountability. Anyone else interested?

I'm in if you guys want another buddy! I'd like to lose some weight just to feel more /comfortable/ in the saddle again. 30-35 pounds sounds like a great starting point to me. =)

I'm in.

I don't have a weight goal, I have a size goal. I want to be a size 8 by my birthday (October 24). I am currently a size 12/14 (5'7" and 180lbs).

I got some tips from my sister-in-law (who is a personal trainer in GA) and from the trainer at my barn, so here's hoping!

Well, my sister-in-law suggested eating six small (healthy) meals per day and getting your heart rate up to 80 beats per minute for a minimum thirty minutes five days a week.

The trainer at my barn said she went from a size 12 to a size 6 in five months by eating egg whites (scrambled) for breakfast every morning and just riding a lot.

Thanks draftyairesmom! I have done the 5-6 small meals and do pretty good but like I said it only lasts about a month before I start losin it for whatever reason. I think we ought a maybe have a weekly weigh in or something to help keep us on track. And if anyone has any excercises they especially like or anything please share!

I'd love to be a part of this. I need to lose more than 30-35 lbs but it is an awesome start. I'm so ashamed I don't even want to post my weight. All I know is I feel terrible for my horses when I get on them and I don't want to feel that way anymore.
