hi all!
i feel good (just did a 5km treadmill run, and supposedly 19.5 km on the recumbant bike, but i seriously doubt that it is accurate(the bike)!, but i am using that figure to beat next time)

I am starting to get serious now on the fitness! and no longer concerned with weight!!!!!!!!!! any i lose is just the icing on the cake!(i am eating more each week until i reach my maintainance goal, this week will be 1900 cal) I feel good at the weight i am! and can fit all my nice clothes again, so if i stay at 185 forever, well so be it! but i am wary of falling off the wagon! usually i get to this point then think, i can eat anything, then I start to think why bother watching what i eat... blah blah, then i start gaining weight and saying, well to **** with the excercise... then i'll be back here in 4-6 months over 200 pounds again.............. (maybe back to 280!!!!!!!!!!! EEEECKKK!)
SO PLEASE HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will stay here and let you all know how i am doing! and update my fitness progress (just because i am no longer aiming at the weight loss, do not think i am not worthy of comment!, and i truelly know the weight struggle!
I wrote down my goals (mainly fitness) , this is my goals to reach before the end of march! (20 weeks!)

1. Be able to run 5km in 35min (outside running, i can already do this on the treadmill, but outside running is harder)
2. Be able to do 10 FULL push-ups (not knee ones)
3. CONSISTANTLY EXERCISING- 3 cardio, 2 weights sessions per week!
4. finish applying for the job i want, and not be afraid of the fitness test it involves!
5. change the style of clothing i wear ! I have my curves back and need to be proud of my body, not cover in baggy t-shirts and shorts all the time.
6. not return to old eating habits, and continuing to journal the food i eat!

I have one question though? i have looked through a lot of websites (fit day, biggest loser... etc) but i do not know what my calorie intake to maintain would be?
I lose weigh fast at 1800. and fitday says i need about 3300(without excercise)????? I just don't know????? Anyone have any general idea?

Cheers all.

LOL...ummm I've been posting on the other board all day and wondering why you gals havn't been joining me lol...I'm just going to copy and paste them here...

LOL wtg Wendy...hold off until supper! Did you make it? I'm sure you did lol. Your descriptin did make me hungry, but luckily it isn't too far away from supper now. That is cool that you love to dance! I can't...really dance. Nothing too cool, but I just like to dance free style.

Lynda, yup that is what happend to all of us. We went to sleep and woke up a few pounds heavier...lol. You will do well though! So far so good!

Andrea, your weight in isn't too far away! Hang in there

Well, I did get a nap in, and now I'm just tyring to wake up. I am trying to decide what I am going to do today...I've got so much school work to do, I really want to work out, and tonight some friends are going to a movie (that I have already seen, chicken Little). I think I'm going to skip the movie, work for about an hour, and work out around 7:00. Maybe eat after I work out. I hope this works out lol. I'm really cold, and I hope I can build up the strength to leave my dorm room.

Wish I could have some coffee rightn ow, but it would keep me up all night.

Hey girls! So, I worked out!

I did about 200 calories lifting weights, 160 on the stair stepper, and 400 calories on the elipitical glider.

Ummm eating wise I'm not doing too good, but I can still make up for it tonight...or maybe I'm ok yet. I had a bagel this mornig with creame cheese, for lunch a tuna sandwhich...and that is it so far for today. I need to eat something for supper tonight.

I'm smelley...going to go shower







Now I need to go read the rest of the posts here...lol I'm such a dweeb

Hey Lynda, I'm sorry that excercising is so painful at first...it was for me at first too, but now it just feels great. I'm not sure if your pain is 'not being used to excercise' pain though. Just keep up the good work! You can do it!!!

Wendy, sorry that your back is hurting you. Just keep doing well! Hang in there!

Ice, I'm not sure what your calorie intake should be. The site that I use is slimfast.com, and you could even go there just for that calculation. WOW! You have lost so much weight and you look amazing! WHOHOOO! Keep it up, and of course keep posting here even though you are maintaining. We'll keep you on track!

Andrea, hang in there! Whatever the scale says this morning, just know you did your best. I think you can do it though!



Alright, so I ended up staying in and working on homework. I'm going to stay upfor a few hours yet and see if I can get some serious work done. Will be doing the same all day tomorrow and Sunday...I really hope I can get tons of stuff done this weekend...gulp

I Believe"

Have you ever reached a rainbow's end
And did you find your pot of gold
Ever catch a shooting star
And tell me how high did you soar
Ever felt like you were dreaming
Just to find that you're awake
And the magic that surrounds you
Can lift you up and guide you on your way

[Chorus:]
I can see it in the stars across the sky
Dreamt a hundred thousand dreams before
Now I finally realize
You see I've waited all my life for this moment to arrive
And finally, I believe

When you look out in the distance
You see it never was that far
Ohhh No
Heaven knows your existance
And leads you to be everything you are
Ohhh
There's a time for every soul to fly
It's in the eyes of every child
It's the hope, the love that saves the world
And, ohhh, we should never let it go

[Chorus]

I believe in the impossible
If I reach deep within my heart
Overcome any obstacle
Won't let this dream fall apart
See I strive to be the very best
Shine my light for all to see
Cause anything is possible
When you believe yeah

[Chorus]

Ohh Yeah

Love keeps liftin me higher
Liftin me higher
Love keeps liftin me higher
I said love keeps liften
Love keeps liften me
I said Love keeps liften
Love keeps liften me higher
Said love keeps liften me higher
I said love keeps liften me high

Ok, all of the luck coming your way then Andrea! :) You will do good...the holiday seaons sucks for that reason though!

Wendy, you go woman! Kick that excercise butt! :) You are doing so well!

WOw...I can't concentrate today! I finally moved back to my room to see if I can get some work done.

Good news though girls, I weighed again today and I'm still 155! I think I'll stay here (at least for a few more days). Not letting it sneak back back up on me!

Ug...I keep getting off track when I'm trying to work. I am setting up a Christmas Charoling for Toys for Tots at our school, so I spent a good hour this afternoon working on that. That is the last thing I should be starting right now...grrrr lol. I love doing stuff like that though.

Ok...be back later!

Hey guys!
I survived the mother! For the first time in my life she didn't coment on my weight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a miracle!!!!!!
my father hugged me and said "gosh you look good, pity you left home, i can't show you off to everyone!!!!!!!!"
and for my dad saying more than one word is a lot!
I made my low fat choc cake! but since the family came late, at lunch time, i sent DH out for hot fish n chips, and made him get a wholemeal salad roll for me! and i think my mother was satisfied, just with the fact i did eat a normal amount of food! just better choices!

Hey girls!

I miss you guys! Wendy told me there were newbies posting here! WELCOME!

Hi Wendy & Andrea ... how are my girls?

Andrea - I didn't go to weight watchers, I'm trying something free. I am so broke. I am having my mom weigh me every Sat. morning (she's a fitness freak) and I still have to write her a check once a month for student loans so she said every pound I lose, I get to take 5 dollars off my monthly check! So that is pretty exciting right there! If it doesn't work, then I'll go back to WW but this moning it snowed and I didn't want to get up LOL I know, excuses, excuses.

Anyway ... night! I will come chat with y'all manana!

Hi Sonja! Good job with mom and dad,sounds like they are very impressed with their little girl!!
Off to bed for sure this time! It's 12:45am,I must be crazy staying up this late,when I am sooo tired!

Hey Ice, I am so glad it went so well with your mother! I bet that just made you feel so good. I'm sure your parents would love to take you home now and show you off :) Keep up the good work!

Thanks Sunni, this seems like a pretty good place :). That sounds wonderful what you are doing! Loseing weight is really expensive...something I am NOT looking forward to is getting new close, because I really don't have the money. It sounds like you really have things figured out! :)

Wendy, you were up late Wendy! I stayed up until about 12:20 working on homework, and then I read for about an hour :) Hope you had a good night's rest.


Hey girsl! I'm trying to decide if I can work up the motivation to go to church. Doesn't that sound aweful??? I do feel guilty, but I've got a lot of homework to do, and I'm so tired right now. Also, I am going to the concert this afternoon, and I really can't afford missing another couple of hours...grrr not sure what I am going to do.

Well, I stayed in my PJ's all day yesterday :) LOL. I am going to go shower now though. 2 days in PJs is a bit much I think. I'll be back

I bet it was nice sleeping in this morning though! I always sleep in (compared to many of you, sleep normally until 9:30).

I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far!

I am feeling better now. Thanks ((((((((Andrea/Diane...I'm still confused lol)))))). I had that tea, and I'm over it. ...I'm same spot as Kelli lol

Kelli, congrats on the new scale! Is there a way you can change it? LOL...I have a little knob on my scale (not digital...) that I can change it. I try not to mess with it too often, but sometimes it gets a little off. When I'm feeling really off I will change it like 10 pounds lighter tehehe lol.

GL on lifting Diane!



I weighed today, and I'm still 155 lbs! I am so happy about that (I think it is going to stay...and going to creep down).

So, how is everyone doing food and/or excercise wise this weekend. Excercise for me is nadda...oh well. I've been too busy.

Food wise I've been doing pretty good. I had a bowl of cerial (this wheate stuff), and a granola bar for lunch. For supper I had two cheese enchaladas (sp???) and 4 chicken wings (they were sleightly breaded), but that is it! I only ate half of the meal I got from the school grill. So, I will be eating the same thing tonight. I thought I could afford it, because i really didn't have many calories this weekend so far. So, I'm happy with that.

Today so far I had a bagel with fat-free cream cheese, for lunch I'm working on a granola bar. For supper I'm probably going to eat the other half of my meal from lastnight.

So, I started birth control today (for anxiety...lol just want to add for those who don't know lol). It is a really low dose one, but I'm still afraid that it is going to make me gain weight. I've heard of that happening before, even though mine looks like a pretty good one. If it does...grrrr the stupid thing is going out the window.

Hi all. Starting over today. Here's my plan (I heard if you put it in writing and say it aloud, it works):

Mon - Sat = 30 min yoga in a.m.
Mon - Sat = 30 min walking p.m.
Sun - = 30 - 45 min walking

No more pop (for ya'll Yankies I think you call it soda. LOL!)
Stay w/in my points : 24 daily
After kids are in bed: Do p.m. exercises and catch up on my reading

I have decided that I will be making my family eat better too. Believe it or not, my kids eat more veggies and healthier food than the rest of us. If hubby complains, I will show him how to use the stove. LOL!

I think by actually sticking with this and the wonderful support from my friends here, I will lose it and keep it off this time.

Morning ladies!

Ug Diane, sounds like you are feeling kind of crappy this morning. It is a Monday...lol. I hope you are feeling better by now though! Also, I do not add anything to my shredded wheat...just some splenda. I don't have anything else to add in my room lol.

Tiff, lol! I remember loving that show! Now it kind of scares me lol, jk. Good luck starting over! Sounds like you have a good plan!

Wendy, sorry that you were a bit backed up! Hope you are feeling better by now! :)


Yup, Diane was right...I was working hard lastnight. We ended up also going out for supper to The Other Place (it is a restraunt). Ummmm I had two peices of pizza and a beer (but the beer was Miller Lite, so not too bad). So, I'll have to be careful today.

I havn't weighed myself yet today to see where I am at. Gulp, kind of afraid to do so.

Well, today I have class from 4:00 P.M.- until 6:00. I am meeting with a professor at 3:30, and tonight I am planning on working out. Other than that I'll be working! I really ...shoudl not have gone out lastnight, but I deserved the break. LOL, my friends were trying to talk me into going, and then my mom called. I thougth she would tell me I shouldn't go out either if I still had a lot to do, but she told me to get my butt out of my dorm lol. So, I'm glad I did.

Ok...I'm going to get a few hours of work in this morning.

Awwww ((((((((((((((Diane))))))))))))))))) Same thing or something else going on now? Not feeling good? I'm sorry! Hang in there!

Wendy, that is a wonderful attitude! New day! Wow...141 lbs! It had to be before Middleschool that I was that weight lol. I finally got past my 157 lbs park! Keep up the good work!


Well...I weighed myself finally and now I'm 154 LBS!!!! I am down a pound! WHOHOOO! It is crazy that I was 160 a week ago! I can't believe this! I've passed by old low of 157 lbs!

So, does that mean that my birth control won't make me gain weight, or is it still too early to tell?

Hi all,
Sorry D. I hope things get better for you today,Hun. All the best,I wish I knew a stupid joke to cheer you up!
Tess,Congrats on your loss!! Feels good doesn't it?!! Whoo hoo!!
The BCP's shouldn't cause to much weight gain,if you eat right and exercise then you should be able to control it!! I take them for cramps during that time of the month,sadly to say,not for any other reason LOL!!!!

There were two muffins in the oven. One muffin turned to the other and said "wow, it is hot in here." The second muffin said "AHHHH A TALKING MUFFIN!!!!!"!!!!"!"!!!!!"

Good Morning!!! That's strange....Andrea usually beats me here every morning......Diane where are you???? Today I am doing squat,since I am going dancing tonight,I figure that is enough exercise for the day! I go to a place called the Palomino Club,ever heard of it?? It's supposed to be "world Famous" HaHa !!There is alot of military folk that stop in from time to time from all over the world,but I don't think it is world famous because of that.It is a bar,and just a place for people to get jiggied up!I am looking forward to tonight,PMSing and I need to let loose!
Catch you all later!

hi ladies!
sorry im late....hairy mornin! good news is i FINALLY erased the brace stress from my mind bc i called the facility this mornin and told them 4get it that i was goin elsewhere where they wouldnt gimme crap bout takin a rx from my primary doc-goin tomm to get the rx and then next wed am gettin fitted for them.

i still am stressed over others tuff though- im hurtin from my fall and last night i think i had anothera asthma attack-funny cuz supposedly i dont have asthma.

have fun tonight wendy!!! you go gf!
hiya tess! not feelin much better sigh..... hope you are!

Oh Wendy how fun! I love dance clubs! Normally go every other weekend...love em! Yup, that is enough excercise for the day :) lol. Are you a cage dancer then? lol jk :P Enjoy letting loose! :)

Diane, I am so glad you got the brace taken care of...good for you! I hope the next place you go is better. That is really strange about your asthma, talk to your doctor about it. Hate saying this, but if they can see it is asthma it could be something else. I am feeling better, thank! I really hope things start going better for you!

Well, I just bought all of my Christmas presents! LOL...I have a lot of flex money left in my account for school (we buy a meal plan that lets us have so many meals at the cafeteria and so much money to spend other places...I had like $300 of flex money this semester...I had $160 left...lol. Now I only have $20). So, I baught my mom some things, my sister some things, and a few things for my friends. I also got a few things for me. I baught this green tea kettle (I love tea, and I would like to havea kettle whenever I get a place with a stove...it is a really cute green one too), 2 really cool looking travel mugs (one for me and oen for my mom), a water nalgene bottle (for me...lol), this mug and dish set (not sure who that is for...maybe my grandmother or my aunt), 3 bags of coffee (two for my mom, 1 for me, and one for a friend on my floor), and I also got this travel coffee brewer thing...lol that is for me too. So, I am super excited about these things. Hmmm I wonder if there is a website and then I'll post it here and show you want I got :)

So, I have nothing until 6:00 P.M. tonight (an education party), and tonight I am going to the Affect (which is a campus ministry group). I also plan on taking a break sometime today and working out. I am in a really good mood right now! :)

LOL I feel like the only people left I know are Andrea, Wendy, Jen (and I noticed she's mia) and Tiff sorta ... LOL That just tells me I need to get here more often!

Hi guys, i haven't been around lately.. too busy with christmas coming.

Too much shopping.... wrapping and organising!

I am doing well, but must hop onto my treadmill this afternoon for a cardio session! I have the air con on, to cool the house first! (its now day 3 of 40 deg celcius heat! OUCH!)

Eating is good, though trying to increase overall intake as i do want to lose a lot more, but that is hard, it is too hot to be bothered preparing! I have been writing down my menu of a night for the next day, then making sure i eat everything on it!
Its funny i am either on a diet or not! so i either eat very pickily or just eat anything, trying to find a middle road for a while.

I am here complaining of the heat and you all have snow!!!!!!!!!!!!! can you express post it to me!!

Hi

Treadmill and summer, got to wonder if i am nuts!! LOL!
I don't know if i should risk having a 3.5 horse power air con on, while using a 2.75 horse power treadmill, that is a huge power pull through a house mains! i am too scared to blow it up!! so i turned the a/c off to use the treadmill!
Talk about swimming in my sweat!
but i did do it!
and today i also did weights although i could have had the day off! i find by filling in my spare time, stops me thinking of food (the wrong sorts of foods)

Hey, I just came here to let you gals know that I weighed this morning and now the scale says I'm 150 lbs!?!?! Yeah, that is about 10 pounds in 3 weeks now... I called my mom to let her know, and she told me not to worry about it until next week (really stressed out about finals). Also, I'm been doing a lot of stressing, and that eats up a lot of calories.

Well, so far though I've lost 10 pounds for the 5 pounnd challenge lol. Just thought I'd share the news :) I never dreamed I would be close to the 140 mark.

Hi Wendy

10 pounds ! well done!
that survey sounds like ****! you would get tons of... abusive horrible people!
I hope you get paid something to do it!

I am doing good, MIL and FIL came to visit for the day, insisted on getting KFC for dinner (Killer Fatty Chicken..LOL) so i insisted on steaming a tuna steak and tossing a salad! and just watched their hands dripping with fat! I actually wasn't jealous! it kinda looked gross.
My MIL then looks and me and says "no wonder your skinny now, you only eat salad, don't you eat a hot meal now and then!! LOL!!!)
Then she spends 2 hours whinging on her weight! oh i can't lose, i am doing all i can, ... it is so hard.. and then.. by the way can you wrap 4 pieces of the left over chicken in foil, i will have them tomorrow for dinner!!!!!!!

cheers


I felt no inclination at all to drool over it! (if it was hot and spicy, i might have been able to add a piece into my cal count!, but alas it was only original and not worth bothering with)
