I want to join this thread! I'm currently 194lbs or 88kg and my goal weight is between 60-65kg or 132-143lbs. I've currently training at the gym a few days a week but the weight isn't budging because I'm also building muscle atm which is frustrating.

Horses lend us the wings we lack;

I need to get back on the wagon! After the cruise and a couple trips to visit family, etc - I have seriously gotten off track.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Soooo I need a kick up the back side. This year without horses was supposed to be a trim down year, however, thanks to the stress of moving multipal times, work and studying post-grad, I've gone a put on 20kgs >_<
I am 120kgs. I want to loose 50kgs at the least. My main problem is I am built like a brick poop house. Manly shoulders, manly arms from years of milking and working on a farm in general. Now thanks to a job in nurse, I am loosing my tone and becoming flabby -_-
I will start by walking every morning for 5kgs.
I will say 'no' to junk!
I will say 'no' to sugar!
I will say 'no' to unnessercary fats!

Well, it all looks jolly good here. Now to put it in action :o) Starting 7am tomorrow morning ^_^

Good luck people!

So I was house sitting this week and I thought I would try to continue weight watchers without tracking points. I committed to only eating the food I bought, making healthy meals and I walked the dogs. When I weighed myself of Friday I had lost 4 pounds! That's with eating a whole container of ice cream over the week. That means I'm down to 225 (from 240)! I also got into my size 36 shorts! :) I'm pumped.

I was getting blood pulled for a Lymes disease test so I asked the doctor to run s metabolic panel on me. Im going to call tomorrow and request my records since I don't want to wait for my follow up appointment.

I really need to be more committed to going to the gym now! I have netflix and amazon prime on my kindle so I can watch movies while I'm doing cardio. It makes it WAY easier!

I knew I had gained a lot of weight once I retired from the military..guess weighing in every quarter had its uses :), but I was shocked when I went for my first physical since retiring nearly five years ago to find I had gained just a hair under 80 pounds. I have arthritis issues in my knees and knew I had to do something. I have now started water aerobics (did anyone ever know that yes it IS possible to break a sweat in a pool?) and am working with a personal trainer. Four weeks into it I have lost 12 pounds and have doubled my degree of stretch and strength. I went to try out a 17.3 hand horse yesterday and was shocked I could mount from a very short mounting block (I'm 5'6 or 16.2 hands as I like to tell people)..I could actually stretch up high enough although admittedly I did drop the irons two holes :). Still, I was able to dismount for maybe the first time without having to lay over the horse's back to slide down to baby the arthritic knees. I have a long way to go but it is a start..and a good one I think.
