Default Get me out of the 190s!! Who else???

The original 190s thread had a few cobwebs about, so let's revive it by starting up anew! Hopefully there'll be some takers who want to rally together to push out of this pound-decade and into the 80s!

I'm new to the 190s, but I'm already ready to get out...I get bored easily.

Let's hope we have some company this time, Paradoxx!

Talking new decade here we come!!!

I would LOVE to be out of the 190's. I was stuck hovering around 202 for months and it wasn't until I joined the Calorie Counters & their Halloween Challenge that I was able to kickstart and get to Onderland!!! Now, I'm at 194 (according to the scale this morning). My goal for Thanksgiving is 189---OUT OF THE 190'S!!!

angee: What diet are you following??? What kind of workouts do you do?

I'm counting calories AND have set a goal for exercising atleast 3x/week. Last week I actually exceeded that goal & worked out 5x! I know we can do this!!! WE WILL SEE THE 180'S BEFORE WE KNOW IT!!!

skinnycow - wow, you are SO close! I'm sure you'll be in Onderland in no time! Keep up the awesome work, girl!

KDM - Congrats on breaking through to the 190s - and look at you, you're already more than halfway to the 180s! I don't follow anything specific besides calorie counting. I'm a vegetarian, so I eat lots of veggies and fruits and I try to only eat whole grains. As far as exercising, I typically exercise 6x or 7x a week. It sounds like a lot, but I live really close to the gym so it's easy to make myself go. I have a personal trainer on Saturdays, tennis on Mondays, and spin class on Tuesdays and Thursdays (THAT'S the big one! Spin is where it's at). On the other days, I just try to go and get at least 30-60 minutes of good cardio in (and a little weight lifting some days) and call it a day.

Sanna - I was very excited when I finally got to have a ticker! I'm sure you'll have fantastic progress to show!

Bronchitis is hindering my workouts currently, but I'm trying to keep my calories down. How is everyone else doing?

I've been around 193 the past week... my goal is to be in the 180s by Thanksgiving! (I know I'll be back up into 190s the day after... but I'm going to try my best to eat small portions :P)

lackie - welcome!! i'm sure you'll see the 180s in no time!

paradoxx - eww, sorry about your bronchitis yuck. but im sure it wont hinder you too much if you're controlling your calories.

i've been doing fairly well - great on exercise, but not fantastic on food. the only problem is that my doctor took me off my appetite suppressants, so im having a little trouble adjusting to these snacky cravings coming back. bleh.

KDM, yeah I'm superexcited!! Just made my ticker but I guess it takes a while to show up, or then I did it wrong somehow.

Paradoxx, hope you get better soon

Angee, I've got your problem in reverse, foodwise I'm doing great, but am not exercising enough. Here's something for those cravings

I've been maintaining this week, which is better than gaining I guess. But just goes to show that I need to up my exercise to get the scale moving.
Just yesterday I got a little ticklist from a magazine that I taped up on my bedroom door, so everytime I walk 30mins I get to draw a tick on it which is surprisingly motivating (I already have 2)

I know what you mean about Thanksgiving...my goal for the Tgiving CC challenge is 189 by then...I think I'll meet my goal (scale read 191.5 today)...however, i'm hoping to not have much "temptation" food-wise because unfortunately, I'll be working instead of going home to WV for the HUGE family dinner!!! lol DH & I may do a small turkey the following day, but we won't have near the amount of other foods....

I've done so well the last 2 weeks with exercising, it's not funny!!! and today, I bought a recumbant bike from Craigslist ONLY $20!!! So, now i have absolutely no excuse to not exercise bc my DVR is full...I told DH tonight that I'm goin to put the bike in the living room so I can ride while I'm watching everything on the DVR!!! hahaha NO EXCUSES NOW! (When I lived in Philly, I rode my bike to work (9miles round trip) and lost about 10lbs w/out dieting really....so I'm hoping this will get me out of the 190's and smoothly down to the 170's by New Years! A girl can dream big, right???

Keep up the good work everyone!!
