100 lb. Club - One month to go and I'm stepping it up...

11-19-2007, 12:57 AM
I've done pretty good for myself, I lost 25 lbs last month but I only have one more month before I go on a major international trip and I have clothes that are still tight that I bought specifically for the trip.

So I am stepping it up. I did 35 minutes on my elliptical tonight along with some upper body strength training.

I have also been feeling a bit lax with my food although I am still following my overall plan, I have been stretching it a bit into those "rarely" items but making them not so rare.

I just wanted to post because I need to make a commitment to myself and others that I am going to push myself and do the best I can. I also am not setting up any unreachable goal but I am aiming to get under 200 by the time I go on my trip.

That is all.

Ok! I am with you... I only have 5 for the x-mas goal but my arse has been slacking *even if I have lost inches?!*...

So I am going to step it up with you.

No more stepping off plan for me. I want to be 240 for new years... And if I hit it sooner then I will bump again! :carrot:

How did you lose 25 lbs last month? WTG!!!!

Part of it was following 3 weeks out of 4 where I was on business trips eating out and I was up 10 lbs when I came back. It was horrid and I knew I needed to do something. I switched to a vegan, whole foods diet and the weight started disappearing.

Okay, I'm stepping it up with ya'll! I want to lose 10% of my starting weight by the end of the year...that's 231 so I have 14 lbs.

Congratulations on all your hard work, Nelie! I have no doubt in my mind that you'll make this work. Where are you going, by the way?

Hi Nelie, I know you can do it. Look how far you've come!! I need to recommit to staying on plan better than I'm doing. I need a fun international trip with new clothes like yours to use as incentive! :)

Uh oh!! Uhh they are coming :)

Sheila, I'm going to Antarctica via Chile/Argentina.

Wow! What a cool trip! Okay, stupid question, but what does one do in Antarctica? (Off to google Antarctica.......)

you get on a cruise ship where there are lots of lectures and you spend some quiet time as well but then you get to disembark and play with penguins :)

:) What a great adventure! I was having trouble picturing where you would actually stay while you were there! I didn't think there were Best Westerns or Howard Johnsons in Antarctica, ;) but admittedly, there's an awful lot I don't know! The cruise ship makes more sense.

Nelie that is awesome!!

11-20-2007, 04:45 PM
Nelie - your continued determination just amazes me. You are awesome. I know you can accomplish whatever you set that pretty little mind to.

11-20-2007, 04:48 PM
You can do it, Nelie!! You've made great progress already, and I'm sure you'll reach your goals. Antarctica....WOW!! That sounds amazing!

11-20-2007, 05:07 PM
Your trip sounds amazing! I believe you got this thing made. I'm cheering you on.

11-20-2007, 05:15 PM
You go, Nelie! Mind if I borrow some of that motivation? :D

What an amazing trip! I'm sure you'll fit into your wardrobe perfectly!
