I just did the Jillian Michaels Kickbox Fastfix and it was AWESOME. It was only 20 minutes but it was so fastpaced that I was able to get my sweat on. It doesn't have as many weight training moves as I prefer, but it was a good cardio workout and to be real honest I am still sweating and I finished it about 15 minutes ago lol

If you don't like leaving home to workout the Jillian Michaels dvds will kick your butt, but you have to PROGRESS your weights or you get stuck in a rut. Also you need weights to even do most of her stuff. I like working out at home and have an ottoman (yes an ottoman...) full of weights, a yoga mat, resistance bands, gravity straps, and kettlebells. Trust me-her workouts will kick your ass. Plus you can usually find used weights on CL or your local classifieds. Which reminds me I need to go get some heavier fiance will be absolutely thrilled with that :P

I've lost 3lb since last Sat! Pretty pleased considering I only did cardio once... I've been staying under calorie target though and I plan to do at least 4 days cardio a week!

How has everyone been doing? Anyone reaching their weekly goals? How about daily ones?

I am working on a daily goal of lowering my sugar intake. If I get gestational diabetes I will not be happy.

Well I was just diagnosed with crohns. All I can sit here and think is "why didn't I get the weight loss that goes with it?!" lol.

Seriously though I don't know what the outcome of this will be. Its early stages but from what i've been told the meds blow you up like a balloon *sigh*

I'm sorry that I haven't been around lately, but you know how life can be. I weighed and measured yesterday morning. I weighed in at 225.2, with is -9.4 lbs, and lost another 5.5 inches. This is mostly because of watching my calorie intake, but I just started riding my bicycle again, so maybe that will help even more.

I've been staying on track for the most part, and I can feel that my pants are getting really loose :). I hope you're all doing well!

Good job Cinder and Painted Fury! NBEventer, yes some chrons meds will cause you to gain weight, but this is because of the steroids. This just means that you have to watch what you eat particularly carefully also so you can avoid flare ups. Staying on a consistent exercise routine is a must. Also different results for different people. I know multiple people on chrons meds. A set of twins actually and they both have had the same surgeries and are on the same meds and have the same type of chrons. They take the steroids I do believe and neither are balloons. They have a little extra on them, but this is mostly contributed to their diet. On the other hand I know someone that is on chrons that is on the steroids and he gained quite a lot of weight. However he also has a very poor diet. My point is, if you watch your diet very very closely and continue exercising I bet you can stave off some of the weight gain from meds and possibly even reverse it. Also I bet with watching your diet and exercising you can also work to easier control your chrons (which could mean a reduction in meds), and an all around turn around.

I haven't heard anyone say "I've parked the car and now ride a bicycle".
