Default looking for buddies with similiar goals....

Fist off I want to say that I love this group I found it today and thought it was amazing.... long story short I need to lose weight....hence the reason I am on here...lol.... I was losing weight for my wedding and well another long story short I called off the wedding due to infidelity.....and I gained back the weight loss for the wedding and more... I am not ashamed to say how much I weight, I hit 195 after the break up. I went to the Dr. a few weeks ago and I have a condition that causes infertility but I can manage it through weight loss and go on to have perfectly healthy babies I want to lose 50 lbs in the next year. I will be returning to college then and I really want to be the cute emo girl all the emo guys turn around and look at...lol. I am looking for people who have similiar goals and want to begin a year long journey of hope with me.....

Seems we all have similar goals! lol

I'm looking to lose a good 50lbs more as well, I want to pick up Hoop Dancing. I just cant afford a hoop yet! lol

I have type one diabetes so it is very hard for me to lose weight. It can be really tough!

You have my support as well

Hi!

Can I join in too? Although I had to look up what an "emo girl" was - I'm 40 now and it wasn't in my vocabulary. Sounds like my dress (and maybe music) from college days in Leeds though (tooooo long ago). I'm in Canada now and have just over 40lbs left to go.

ok so Fridays it is...what is everyone doing for exercise.... me and a friend are trying to start out with 100 min a week and adding min every week until we feel like we are at a good point.

Also what is everyones biggest hindrance to losing weight? I work in fast food so that is really killing me.... I work at Dairy Queen so all the wonderful smelling fried food is a real killer...not to mention the blizzards....lol

I am really pumped to lose the weight though, I feel like for the first time I can do this

ok for exorcise in the mornings i run/walk three times a week (run 2 min, walk 1 min) for 20 min. the days in between i walk between 30-60 min. in the mornings. in the afternoons i usually do my cheesy 1 dollar workout video for 20 min. 5 days a week, i take the weekends off.

my biggest hindrance is definitely my husband. he's got a belly on him but refuses to do anything about it and is constantly on the hunt for cookies and ice cream! i love him to death but it's so hard when he's eating all that junk in front of me! even harder when he tries to get me to eat it too!

Cool

For exercise I walk or run - recently it's been mostly walk, but when the boys (I have 3) are back in school at the end of this month there will be more running. Three days a week I do one of the "Get Ripped" DVDs by Jari Love - it uses weights with lots of reps, and I like it (it's one hour or so). I'm considering joining a gym in the fall but since it's a 40km drive to town, I'm not sure. I walk the dogs every day, but it's not always at much speed - we have a new puppy who doesn't walk that well yet. I keep tripping over him.

I have a goal of not being overweight (155 or less, by BMI) by my birthday on November 10, that's 12 weeks away and I have 20lbs to go. So if I follow a linear path (which I won't!) there's just over 8 weeks to mangokitty's wedding, a goal of 14-15lbs lost by then seems reasonable. So I'll aim for 160/1 or less by Oct 13.

I'm not sure what my biggest hindrance is, other than me! DH is supportive but is one of those people who doesn't gain weight, works in a very physical job (construction) and eats lots. So he does like to have junk around.
