Myhorsesonadors's weight loss journal

I have finally gotten back into ridding, so I wanted to start a journal so any one interested could fallow along.

Ok So 2 weeks ago I weighed around 225-7, I have always been a yo-yo on weight. Well today when I stepped on the scale, I was 219! I don't know when that happened, but I don't care I'm FINALLY loosing weight!! I've been working at it forever!

A week ago I finally got back in the saddle. I'm ridding a whale! Just kidding, she is a perch X paint. She is about the size of a house! I've not been close to a horse that wide, not even the Clyde stud I used to work with!

Here is the pics, no critique as I'm WAY out of shape!

My 2nd lessons is tomorrow, I'll try to get my mom to take pics again tomorrow.

I have stretched/(torn in the past) tendons in my ankles, and I had a lot of problems last time. I literally loose my ankles, they wobble like I have no control, then boom they are gone. I knew I had a bad back, but I didn't know how bad my ankles were getting. Any exercises that I could do to help with that? The pain is almost unbearable.

Practice standing on one leg. Do it all the time. Do it in bare feet , if possible. STand on one leg as long as you can. Once you can do it for a real long time, stand on one leg then while maintaining your balance, bend down and touch the ground in front with the opposite hand.

All this balance work improve the small muscles in the foot and ankle. Only streth those muscles after they are warm.

YOu look very healthy and strong.

Get a piece of wood about 4 in thick or a step...or anything raised and put just your toes on it then raise up your heel. Basically stand on your tip toes....go up and down, do it several times a day. When you go down make sure your heel touches the ground :)

Thanks I'll have to try those. :)

I guess the weight loss was a fluke, because I steped on the scale yesterday and it was all back. >.<

Doncha just hate how that works?

What is your daily diet like? Do you eat a lot of breads, pastas, etc.?
Cutting your carbs and adding more protein and vegetables may help with your weight loss. Also lots and lots of cardio and muscle building exercises with help with the loss of fat and create a more muscular and toned body. Riding is great too. Great for your core and legs.

I'm on weight watchers with my mom. I hardly eat any thing at all. I useal don't even eat all my alowed points for the day. :/

I also do lots of yard work, run with my dogs, swim, and work out. I've been doing that for over 2 month now, with no change. >.<

Try eating lots and lots of fish, chicken, turkey, and lean beef. Its low in calories, carbs, and high in protein. Also eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables for a snack or with any meal.
Avoid eating breads or anything high in carbs.

You could try looking into some kind of diabetic diet. It has worked for several people that I know including myself. You don't have to be diabetic to try the diet.
Its good that you're working out and being active.
How long and how many times a week are you exercising?

I switch between running and working out. (I just started this part 3 weeks ago, I wanted to get the food half of it down first) My sced is [Sat. Ride, yard work] [Sun. Day off] [Mon. Weights(legs)] [Tue. Run] [wed. Weights (core)] [Thur. Run] [Fri. Weights (arms)]

Most people think I'm crazy, but I want to stick with it!

Could be your problem, if you don't provide your body with enough fuel, and the right sort of fuel it will go into shut down mode, feed it to much and it will store it as excess.
