    I have heard of Fit Day, I love those kind of websites! I use SparkPeople myself. They have a nutrition tracker and I use it everyday. They also have a fitness tracker that I use on occasion, it seems to be pretty accurate.

    This thread is a wonderful idea. Support from others is a good boost to those working on reducing. At this point I probably don't belong here but I have been where many of you are...and it's frustration.
    I have posted this previously but what worked for me was keeping to the diet of a Type 2 diabetic. I never counted a calorie, only carbs, and the pounds fell off. I hit a plateau at 128 and have remained there for a few months. I'm 5'3".
    I feel better, my joints feel a lot better, and my horse says Thank You!

    I wish you all success. You will be so happy you did this.

    Are we going to do a weekly "weigh-in" or anything like that?

    Also, a friend of mine is going to WW and has lost 21lbs in 5 weeks (very proud of him) and he picked me up the new 360 kit so that is what I will be reading tonight when I get home.

    I had my first session with my PT today. We went over the 20 minute fit fix circuit they have and showed me how to use all the machines. I love it. I will be back tomorrow to train at lunch. My next session with my PT is tuesday. We will be doing a weigh in and measurements then.

    Not going to lie, I am scared to get the actual numbers. I have been guessing at my weight. So this will be the real numbers. Eek!

    In the mean time, I am going to do cardio tomorrow at lunch and will do the 20 minute fit fix on Friday and Monday. I will be doing barn, teaching and riding all weekend so I wont make it to the gym. But that will still have given me 5 days this week.

    I did slip up and drink a small chocolate milk today *sigh* I shouldn't have, but I did. I think I am going to do some pilates tonight at home.

    We could do a weekly weigh in if you guys want to, which day would you like to do it? I am open to any ideas.

    Out of winter boredom, I acquired a culture (SCOBY-symbiotic culture of bactera and yeast) and began brewing a tea called komboocha. I find it very filling. If I drink 4 oz. Before each meal I feel full before I even start eating. You can buy it at the stores (pricey) or buy a culture and make your own for about $2-3 gallon.

    I'm game for a Monday or Tuesday weigh-in. That way I have to remember to be good on the weekends. :)

    Boy this week has been stressful at work and home, but I refuse to dive into any junk food.

    I usually weight myself and take measurements on Mondays, but I'm open for anytime.

    My name is Golden, and I have divorced my scales.

    I am fat, but losing, I'm getting fitter is the main one.

    I do have a target in mind, well several targets, but I am trying not to focus on the scales.

    My targets, to be 100% on my diet from now until 25th March, when I go on vacation, and to get fitter by working out every day, the weight loss is a pleasant side effect.

    Some heart rate monitors will tell you your actual calories burned. Those websites are usually way off.
