So, I weighed in this morning at 234.2, down 1.8 pounds from last week. I also took my measurements this morning, and they are down 6.25 inches. I am SO happy. This goes to prove that the scale lies about diet and exercise working or not. If I had only weighed myself, I would have been ok with nearly two pounds, but a little disappointed. Needless to say, I am stoked about losing over 6 inches though.

Also, I found a beginners, intermediate, and advanced workout schedule that I am going to try, along with starting to run/jog a little at a time when I'm walking. The beginners and intermediate workouts don't require any equipment other than you and a mat or floor space. The advanced one requires some weights, kettlebells, and a bench. If anyone is interested in the workouts pm me and I'll tell you where I got them. It's a very handy page. Granted, they are trying to sell you a weight loss supplement, but the other stuff that this lady posts, like the workouts are great.

Weighed in this morning and went from 273 to 265 down 8lbs, but that last couple of days I have been battling this nasty head cold so food has been no interest to me at all. I think it might be more like 4lbs, but I'll take anything.

Hey all(:
Since the nice weather, and the upcoming show season, I decided I really need to get back in shape.
Last year I lost 30 pounds on the Weight Watchers system. Sadly, I gained all of it back plus another 35 ):
I just turned 17 two weeks ago, so buying healthy food isn't my "job" I guess. My mom buys all the food, and she works long hours ontop of homeschooling my sister. Quick dinners are usually never healthy.

I spoke to her Monday and we decided we would start loosing weight again.
My plan is for the next month, to eat as little meat as possible and focus on the vegetables and fruits and to only drink water. I want to clean out my system and get healthy first.
I can work out quite a bit. My house is at the top of hill, a small one anyway. There's a stoplight at the bottom and from my house to there and back, is a mile. So I do that three times every day as well as one of those exercise dvds (it gives you the equivalent of two miles in 30 minutes) and in the morning I stretch and do sit ups, squats, and push ups.

I'm really excited to be able to fit back into my size 5 jeans!! AH! (:

My starting weight is 215.5 as of today (I'm 5'7")
And my goal is to be around 150/140 ish

One good exercise is based off my years of marching band. I've been doing this pretty much every day, and it helps me get my toes up and heels down. When you go to take a step, put your heel first and roll through, holding your toe down. It helps to imagine a tube of tooth paste- get every little bit out.

I know it's just walking, but it always seems better when your focused on something other than the distance.

Kotori, you are right, anything to concentrate on definently makes the distance sort of disappear. Then you're done before you know it.

So last night I tried a new recipe for dinner and I thought I would share it for anyone who wants to try it. It was delicious, healthy, and really easy to make. I'm not exactly a great cook but even I thought it was easy. Anyways, here it is:

1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp olive oil
1 pound(s) uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s), four 4-oz pieces
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp honey

Instructions
Combine first 3 ingredients; sprinkle over both sides of chicken.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 7 to 8 minutes on each side or until chicken is done.

Transfer chicken to a platter; keep warm. Reduce heat to medium-low; add vinegar and honey to pan. Simmer 1 minute or until glaze thickens; stir constantly. Pour glaze over chicken. Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half).

I don't know how many calories it is, but for anyone doing Weight Watchers it's only 4 points per serving!

Down another 1.5lbs. Slow and steady wins the race right. :)

Well, just weighed and measured. 234.6, so up 0.4, but lost another 5 & 1/2 inches. What is up with that?
