Sobering experience...

I pulled ALL the cloths I don't fit into anymore out of my closet. I left the cloths that I could fit into in the near future, realistically. So I 86'ed 8 work tee shirts (pretty much all the cute colorful ones), 15 men's medium Hollister shirts, several hoodies and ALL of my guys pants (Im a hard fit at 5'1 with extra pounds). I didn't go through all the business attire I have or shorts. Hey, if I can't wear'um why keep'um? ... In the closet at least, they are only going under the bed. I already donated 1/4 of my cloths last year to one of the boys "orphanages" I work with.

Hopefully this will give me another boost in the right direction. I guess its sounds silly to be upset over something like this but growing up I didn't have much cloths. I was teased a lot for wearing the same thing over and over or wearing "old lady" cloths (lots of hand me downs). As soon as I was in charge of my own finances I went out and bought a small... Empire... Of cloths.

Anyways, here's to getting back into those size medium Hollister shirts!

Ps... If there is any confusion, yes I am a woman.

OMG my arms are shaking lol. I am going to stick to cardio tomorrow. Just do the treadmill and eliptical and some crunches. Otherwise I am going to be a bowl of jello for my lesson tomorrow night. Not what I need when I am just getting Bratty mare back into jumping. The last time she jumped was August and she ditched me on a landing after I accidently got her with my spur. That resulted in me being hauled away in an ambulance and neither of us have done much more then a foot high cross rail since then. So yea, I need to be on my A game as her confidence is shot *sigh* This will be so much easier once I am a bit more fit.

I have however surprised myself. I am surprisingly fit under the layer of fat lol

A LOT of people are fit but it just doesn't show! Have you ever noticed how many runners have an extra layer of baby fat if all they do is run...? It's the muscle toning that makes you all chiseled and sexy!

Good luck on your lesson, wishing you all the best. Maybe your new found leg muscles will keep you on this time

As far as what Slide Stop said about the clothes, I love doing that. Getting rid of the to big lcothes and than having the clothes that you will be able to fit back into just sitting there waiting to be put on...I did that when I went on my big fat loss endeavor and ended up SURPASSING my goal and needing clothes in a size 0-3 (depending on brand) instead of the size 4 I was shooting for!

I have faith in everyone on here to kick their goals into the end zone (for those of us that follow American football..) for the European people on here that would be scoring a goal that was so epic the keeper didn't even see it coming. Lol

I haven't been able to weigh in the last couple of weeks. The battery on my scale died, and I keep forgetting to take the piece of paper with me when I go to town, so I know what size battery it is. Let me just say, "I HATE BUTTON BATTERIES!!!" But, I do know that I have lost some weight, because my jeans and shirts are getting looser. Yippy me. Maybe I'll remember the paper this weekend, since I already put it in my purse!!

New to the healthy eating and weight loss world, but I thought here would be a good place to join in!
I have 2 questions.
1)I can feel muscle under my belly fat building up but the darn belly fat is still there, what will burn the fat?
2)When I'm at the gym and on the epileptic machine for example, once I feel like I can't do anymore and stop I don't feel it on my legs the next day after sweating like a pig! Is it not working?

Answer to question 1: do a mixture of cardio and strength and watch what you eat. A diet high in carbohydrates an unnecessary fats will keep that layer of fat there. Also that last layer takes a lot of work to finally refine. Don't give up on it

2. Increase your resistance and see how hard it gets

Just a quick question, is it alright if I join you guys though I may not update a lot? I've joined a few "weight loss threads" in the past and I always feel bad because I have no scale to weigh myself with consistently (as of now). However, I could provide support and some advice as I've lost about thirty pounds :).

You are more then welcome to the thread Cinder! Don't be silly.

You should take measurements. I am going to start doing measurements and not be focused on the scale numbers. I am doing a lot of weights so I am blasting my fat into muscle which means the scale number isn't going to be huge but the measurements hopefully will be where I want them.

I did another circuit at the gym at lunch. I was supposed to stay away from the fit circuit but i'm silly and did it anyway lol. I did 15 min on the eleptical at a resistance of 6. I then did the machines. The lower back I did 105lbs, leg extensions 45lbs, leg curl was 45lbs, seated row 70lbs, chest press 85lbs, shoulder lateral raise was 30lbs(that thing is freaking hard!) arm bicep 50lbs, arm tricep 50lbs and abdominal was 45lbs.

My goal is to bump everything up by 10 - 15lbs next week then I am going to take half a week off and focus on my cardio.

I had my protein shake for breakfast which was yogurt, orange juice and mangos. I had a yogurt parfait with blue berries and a banana for lunch. I haven't decided my supper yet as I have my riding lesson right after work and no time to grab something on the way(off work at 5, lesson is at 530 and I work 20min from the barn lol) so it will be a late supper which means something light. Maybe just a veggie stir fry or something. Not sure yet.
