Default 300+ Getting Fit After 40 #317

TO January and a New Year!



This group is for those dealing with the challenges of being fit when you have a significant amount of weight to lose which becomes harder after age 40. If you're an old or new friend and not over 40 and feel this is the place to post, jump right in!

Happy 2014, everybody.

Hope you're all enjoying the holiday. I'm not a big resolution maker, but I do want to work on some habits, and a new month and new year is a great incentive.

Posting regularly is one of my biggies. Keeping up with email is a close second. So I wanted to make sure I get both of those in today.

Everyone got to 2014 safe and sound?

Angela - I'm with you - I must check in here more often.

I have decided I am joining WW on Friday - still not sure if it will be online or meetings. Suggestions from those of you who do one or the other?

I also need to get my activity level back. I'm stiff and sluggish.

My goal by the end of the month is to be feeling better about myself - enough so to reinstate my ticker even though it's UGLY! Truth hurts!

Let's make 2014 our year!

Yes! Lets!

I actually got 2014 off to a weird start -- cold turning to asthma problems! But I think I've got that under control and the good news is that I didn't eat a lot yesterday and didn't even make horrid choices. So I'm going to use it as a jump start for the new year eating wise.

Need to get on the scale this morning and see where I start the new year...

Feel better and take care of yourself Heather!

Yesterday was not a horrible eating day, but not POP, getting there.

Be safe if you're in the path of this storm and cold.

GO US! Walked the dogs today and plan 10 mins on my minitrampoline and some simple exercises.
Here's to a fit and healthy 2014!

Carol, I found out the hard way that I need the show up and do the weigh in thing to stay accountable. I don't always stay for meetings though I have been lately. The leader is a good one.

Back later. I'm off to weigh in soon.

Didn't get to WW. It's not snowing that hard but the roads are like glass. I don't want to slide off and get stuck in single digit temps. I'll try to find a Saturday meeting. It's supposed to warm up by then.

Yesterday was not my best but I had so many WW points left for the week that I was still okay point wise.

Other than shoveling I'm staying indoors today and tomorrow. This is the kind of day that makes being retired worth it.

Went to the dr today and scales said 260. Not the place I wanted them. I have the crud that is going around, started antibiotics and strong cough meds. Hoping to hit it hard on Monday.

Heather, Glad you're feeling better.

Debbie, I hope you'll be feeling better soon, too.

Judy, Hoping your power stays on and no weather-related problems.

Carol, WW online worked well for me for about seven months last year. I fell off track and don't know whether going to in-person meetings would have helped or not. I'm trying to get back on track, still using online only. I think when I show up here I get as good support as I would expect to from a meeting, and honestly, my town is small enough that I just don't want to be going to meetings with people I know from the university who need to lose 20 pounds.

Hi Folk! Just a quik check in as we get this 2014 show on the road. They're having a Biggest Loser contest at work, so I'll get on that program. I kept my weight even through the holidays, so I'm happy about that. But now the work begins.

I hope everyone is ready for a successful journey, and I'm looking forward to sharing it!

I wish you all a HAPPY, HEALTHIER NEW YEAR!!!

Wow. So much snow. So much wind and cold. Never seen them all together before.

I think I'll be doing some shoveling today...

We ended up with a bit over 6" here. Today is sunny but our high is around 0.
Staying in except to shovel.

Hope to get in a WW meeting tomorrow if it warms up a bit.

I've decided on WW online - I'm a bit like Angela and don't want to take the chance of combining professional life with this personal struggle. Today, this minute, my head is in right place.

Good to see everyone here - let's do this!
