    Just wanted to also say my horse has been lame I could of wallowed change a few small things instead of salad cream or mayo try balsamic vingar.. eat salad or vegetables if you burn off enough calories you are allowed are few sins and the weight will still come off!! Excersize everyday if you can no working your horse on the flat for 1/2 hour is just not enough!! If you are walking try walking up some steep hills most of the time there are lovely veiws from the top!! If no hills around you take up running!! When the light fades so I can't do my chioce of excersizing I am going to join the gym!! Once you are there don't give up these healthy choices they are for life!! We want to be fitter and lighter for our equine friends ;)

    I just started working out heavily (besides walking I mean) since my emergency c-section. I was very scared to work out besides walking because the littlest thing hurt my scar tissue by my abs. So for the past week I have been working my muscles and I feel great! In just a few days my husband looked at me and said the most enjoyable sentence a woman can hear "**** you look good!". So obviously it is paying off :)

    I was discouraged for a long while that I would never feel well enough to work out like I enjoy. Remember- DO NOT GET DISCOURAGED! Whatever bump in the road is making you feel blase' just work through it, not past it, through it.

    I just had a baby at the end of August and although I delivered naturally it was hard to start working my abs again. I just had an abdominal surgery oct 11th so now I have to start all over again and I don't look forward to it. Once all the swelling goes down hopefully I will change my mind. What all are you doing to strengthen your core back up?

    Bread is not the culprit that causes weight gain. It contains wheat (protein) and is a carbohydrate which give quick energy. It's what you put on the bread that's the culprit. Try whole grain breads, buns with no condiments. My choice of a good rib-sticking breakfast is canned salmon with lots of chopped celery (can't feel the bones) with just enough mayo to glue it together. A good dollop on two slices of whole grain toast keeps me going for hours. The bread provides quick energy and the salmon provides the slow release energy in the form of protein. It's filling too.

    I have been on weight watchers for a little less than a month, and have lost 10 pounds! My sister has also lost 10 pounds. We didn't change our routine very much, though we try to do a little extra activity wise ( a hike, a walk, extra chores.) But it's been fun! Crossing fingers that we can keep it up.

    I just weighted this morning and I am down to 156. So I am down 44 lbs from my original weight. I was on a liquid diet for over a week and had to go threw two surgeries so over ten pounds is due to all that. I'm hoping to start lightly exercising in the next week. Hopefully this will be my last medical speed bump and I can get In decent shape cause although I hand lost weight my physical condition is not so good

    I am making sure I am standing up straight. When I was pregnant I was so big that it was impossible for me to stand up straight without severe back pain. Now I have a nasty habit of standing with my hiney out. So pull your shoulders back, try to engage your core, and tuck your hips under you. This will help engage your abs for just a little bit of strengthening. I also started with things like lunges which for some reason were really tough for me to do after surgery. I think it is because of the balance required from your core to complete the move. I also do a lot of plank moves. And I just started the Jillian Michaels 6 week 6 pack dvd again. It is reallly tough and I don't recommend it unless you have NO pain whatsoever in your abdomen, and have an ok from your doc. You don't want to injure something and end up 4 steps back.

    Hi All, I'm Melissa. I just wanted to say congrats to all of you on the goals you have reached, you're a real inspiration to me! I'm a 19 year old college student with arthritis in both ankles, one wrist, and various other places, that developed from a serious riding accident, that didn't get tended to like it should have two and a half years ago. I am 5'3", and used to weigh 135lbs. Since I went to college two years ago, I quickly passed the freshman 15 and am now facing the third year 60, and weigh 195lbs. I have a three year old morgan x halflinger filly that I'm training myself, and that was pretty much the only physical exercise I've been getting, as I have been absolutely swamped with school work...
    I have a hard time finding motivation to go to the gym or pool (both of which are about a 5 minute walk from my house), or even make time for them. It seems like eating healthy is so expensive/inconvenient when microwavable kraft dinner is cheap and takes 3 minutes to make :(
    I really need to stop making excuses, and start losing weight, and get fitter, so I can start helping my horse and stop feeling guilty about riding her.
    Thanks guys for all your stories, they seem to have lit some motivational spark, because I now have an alarm set for 6am to drag my butt to the earlybird laneswim at the pool.
