Default Looking for a diet pal

Hey anybody want to be a diet pal. Someone that I can post my feeling and thoughts, ups and downs of this weight journey with. Maybe get new ideas and tips. I really want to lose this weight and could use a pal.

Thank you lottie63 and brandis. A little bit about myself. I'm 51 and have been overweight about 28 years. Lots of yo yo diets. Only to gain back more than I lost. Then one day I had heard about a person that had lost 100 lbs on dukan diet. I told my husband about and he said let's go out and get the book. He had been after me for years to lose the weight (in a nice way). It is lots of meats which I'm a meat eater so I started it and really like the diet for the first time in my life. But to back up a bit. Last year my heaviest weight was 281 with high blood pressure and high colostrol. My sugar was borderline. Size 26 jeans. Way tight. Busting out of them. Went to doctor and asked him for help. He gave me appetite suppressor for 1 month and the next month I took alli. I rotated them every other month. Managed to lose about 40 lbs and drop a size along with my hair. Alli no longer worked and stopped it all. Gained back about 17 lbs. That's when I started dukan. Best thing that ever happened to me. I exercise more now than I have ever in my life. I want this so bad. I'm at 226. Size 20. That's my story. It's very hard sometimes when we camp which we do often. I'm so scared I will get comfortable with my new size and the compliments and backslide.

That's funny, I do a vegan diet. I love it. Never was much of a meat eater (Except wings) but what do I like about wings? The sauce! So, I put it on other things now.

Anyhow...last year I lost 80 lbs, I regained 50 of it on this stupid birth control. I am now off the seasonique and have lost 10 lbs already. Back on portia.

I know what you mean, I got a little too comfortable at 220 lbs myself, and then I started seasonique and it was all downhill from there!

I walk and ride a recumbent and do yoga. It is good for my chronic pain. (I have fibromyalgia) which is a challenge in itself.

Cajunlady - you'll have lots of diet pals in here - everyone who posts helps carry each and every one of us along. I'm staying here because I like this group so much and it feels like home - more than the maintenance group does.

Start a challenge - to stay on plan for X days, or to lose Y pounds by z date. Or whatever you feel will help you stay on track. People will join in - lots of diet pals. You've going to like this group - you will get support and a kick in the butt - whatever is needed - just like loving family members do. Hope to see more of you in all the threads.

Lin

I'm Shannon. I've been hooping for a year. It's changed my life. To be honest, I feel like I'm losing the weight more for the hoop than myself because at a better fitness level/thinner body, I could do such amazing things inside the hoop! But really it's given me the confidence that I can do this and nothing has to be perfect. It's exercise but it's fun! And I can be a dancer that I've always wanted to be. I absolutely love hooping and it's completely changed the world for me. And it makes me crave activity. I'm going to two hooping/movement retreats this summer!

Right now I'm trying a split with yoga DVDs, barre DVDS, and 100 minutes of hooping a week.

Daimere- I think I will have to get me one of those to change my routine up a bit. What areas have you noticed that the hoop works out the most?

Make sure you get a proper adult sized hoop. Walmart or most places don't sell proper hoops. Places like hoopnotica, bodyhoops and etsy are great places to get a hoop unless you have a local hoop maker. Or you can make your own!

Depending on how far you go with hooping, total body. Even just waist hooping will work the muscles of the legs (try hooping after overdosing on major squats...it hurts). Once you get below the waist, it can work more muscles in the pelvis and hamstrings/quads. Once you go above the chest, it can help the back muscles and what not. Off body can work the triceps and what not. It just depends on what you do and what you learn. But it's fun! And most hoopers are super duper nice!

That will be a problem. Finding a hoop. Maybe academy sports might have them.

Just make sure it's not a heavy hoop. No one needs a 5 pound hoop. I think 2 pound and under is a good recommendation. If you are a larger lady, go larger. A lot of people start with 42" hoops. I needed a larger hoop. Most mine are like 55".
