    Oops, been off here for 2 months :( Anywho, I made it all the way through the holidays without gaining any weight! Down 1lb this week and now that all the holiday crazies are over planning on getting my schedule back to normal and get back to losing! My horsies are starting their new conditioning/training program so I promised them I would too :)

    ^Congratulations to you both! That is fantastic!

    I lost about 15 pounds over the last two months because of my accident ): But that's just muscle mass... not actual mass mass

    I had lost 15 pounds earlier in the year and couldn't get the remaining 10 pounds to budge.

    I recently discovered "HIIT" workout (thanks Anabelle) and LOVE IT. It's literately melting the fat off my body.

    Does anybody here use a fitbit?

    I got one for Christmas. I had a BodyBugg a few years ago, and all it managed to do was depress me....I apparently have 0 metabolism, and that just proved it on paper, lol!!

    Does anybody else use one?

    I'm new to this thread, and feel much more motivated to lose that weight that I've built up in the past 2 years, so I think I'll put my starting point.

    I'm 180 lbs right now, when my ideal weight is about 120 lbs, so I need to lose about 50-60 lbs. I'm 5'0". My build is naturally short and stocky, or short and curvy if you prefer.

    The extra weight seemingly came overnight. I don't exercise and I don't eat right, so it really didn't, but my metabolism used to be so fast that it didn't matter. When I turned 18, boom. So, I'm working on changing the habits of a lifetime, finding exercise that is accessible and fun, and plus cutting back on the amount of food and choosing healthier types. Wish me luck .

    Woah, looks like everyone's training with their horses too! I haven't lost any significant weight since riding but I did have some inch loss (probably fat loss and muscle gain). Where I ride, there's strict rules on riders not being able to exceed 90kg, so I guess that is motivation too!

    Hello, I have not caught up yet on this whole thread but would like to join in.
    I am working on getting my weight down and would like to drop close as possible of 50 lbs this Spring.
    Current weight is 324.2 lbs
    Monday is my weigh in day, hopefully all is good. I kinda fell off a bit due to being sick the past 2 weeks.
    Starting exercise again as I also want to get in shape too.
    My Spring goal is to be down to a more rideable weight, in shape enough to start riding, and to be able to start riding lessons in the Spring.
    I am calorie counting and have decided to try to go gluten free along with increase my veggies. (I am not a veggie person so this is a big thing for me)

    I'm in the 140s now, down about 15 pounds after this accident. So... it's good and bad x.x

    My wife and I do a lot of trail riding together - We take turns in front and my wife's camera is always going. Finally I had a belly full (sorry about that) of looking at pictures of me with my stomach and "lunch pockets" hanging out, so I just put unflattering pictures of myself here and there to encourage me to stay on my diet. It has worked and I have been doing it long enough that healthy eating has become my lifestyle. All I can say is that weight sure goes on easier than it comes off!
