I would like to join in.

My April Goals

To Get Down to 275
To Exercise at least 20 times.


My weight is up a little today, I've been off track for a couple of days. But sometimes when I get back on track, the weight I just gained comes back off quickly, so I adjusted my goal to account for that. In other words, my goal is assuming I'll be back to where I was, and then subtract the pounds. Today's weight 283.4 (up from 282.4).

I have already exercised twice this month. Wednesday and Thursday.

Fenderella and Cakebatter, congrats on those nice losses.
Mothermavis, whoopee, changing numbers! I know that's exciting, too!

^That's some really good advice. The gym I went to before I moved was actually a part of a chiropractor's office, so I would go get my back aligned and then work out for a while. It really helped. Wannabeskinnyagain, I don't know if you go to a gym or not, or if you'd want to, but it'd be really good if you could find something like that. It's pretty convenient having the chiropractor in the same building.

Aww thanks for all the advice and concern ladies! I really appreciate it. I told Dh that if I don't feel better soon I will have to go to the doctor. But I got to tell you the thought of going to a chiropractor terrifies me. I've watched them work on DH before and I don't think I could do it. Even the sound of knuckles popping makes me want to throw up.

Happy Friday Ladies,

I had lunch at my desk and now I am feeling restless from sitting for so long. Only three hours to go. Friday is my running day. Since it is pretty wet and chilly here, I will probably run on the treadmill.

I was down a pound today. WooHoo. I had been on a gaining trend lately so I think I have that turned around. I have been attempting to stay away from sweets since about two weeks ago and it has really made a difference. (I cannot eat sweets in moderation.) It is probably time to add another phase towards cleaning up my worst eating habits. I haven't committed yet, but probably the wine is next to go.

Jacqui D-Thanks for posting the list of goals. Everytime I see it, I am reminded of the goal I set for myself. I will really need to seriously change what I am used to eating if I want any chance of losing that much.

MotherMavis-Congrats on reaching a new decade!

Terapet, you are so welcome. I refer to the list a lot myself. Every time someone mentions that they've lost weight or accomplished what they wanted to do exercise-wise for that day or got away from their plan a little, etc., I find myself checking what their goal is all over again! Somehow it helps to emphasize that others are doing their best and/or have shortcomings as they try to reach their goals, just like me! We're in it together and the list is proof, lol!

Hello all! I'm really glad I joined this thread! It is such a positive thread! Everyone's making progress and it really motivates me to keep going! I would have fallen off the wagon by this time! Today was officially 2 weeks of working out Mon-Fri! Hopefully I'll make it through the weekend with making healthy eating choices. The weekends are usually when I lose focus and do a lot of "boredom" eating. On that same note, I did great last weekend with my eating so I just have to stay focused. Today I put on a pair of jeans and they fit a lot looser now! I want to weigh myself so bad, but I think I'm going to wait until I hit the one month mark! Wish me luck!

Hi everyone Oh ladies.........I am so happy for you all! Congratulationsss on the losses!

Hattie and Jazzy glad you found us over here girls .

wannabeskinnyagain, I am glad your neck is better. I meant to write you yesterday and then I had to run. I have done that before (pulled neck muscle) and that is just awful! I am glad that you rested yesterday and felt better. If you see it persist (back ), maybe another rest day is in order . Better to take a day off or two and let it heal so that you can do your workouts after then to push it and risk injury. Oh I tell myself that too, I hate missing my workouts too but we do what we must ...anyhow, your doing great

MotherMavis congratulations! Into a new digit, wtg! : )

Fenderella, congrats again girl! That's really nice that your learning new recipes and all! Keep up the awesome work

Cakebatter That is great! Regarding the dark meat, I attempted to have a so called cheat meal but I guess it wasn't in the cards! I will take your burger though! lol . Keep it rocking chicky.

Hi Christian right back at you! Thanks sweety, you too

Jacquiii, congratulations girl! wtg! That's great.

Jazzy, wtg on getting a few exercise sessions in already. Looking forward to getting to know you better .

Theresia, congratulations on the loss and your workouts

Terapets, that's awesome! Congratulations on the loss and for staying away from what appears to be trigger food for you! wtg tera .

I hope I didn't miss anyone. How is everyone else doing? A big hello to you all! I think that a c ongratulations is in order for all too! for being here! For striving to make a difference! Working towards improving our health....etc. That takes guts! and patience! Let's keep on fighting! The thing that is getting punched is the scale! lol .

Okay, as for me, I was in for a very pleasant suprise this morning! I am on a downward trend, 1.5! Unbeleivable! Oh I don't officially report until the 10nth though so I need to becareful, not get cocky, and keep my guard up because a lot can happen between now and then. OH, I am real happy though ladies...I think I will allow myself to feel that! I am finally there! I have been waiting for this! For my metabolism to get back to normal and for the darn scale to move like this!

It is so worth the fight! The frustration, the tears, the battles, all so worth it because eventually the payoff (in many ways) is so great and the good feeling supersedes all the prior ones (mentioned above). So any of you out there that may be stuggling and/or not doing as well as you like, you keep fighting! You keep fighting and you never stop! Pick yourself up and start a new day...if you don't do good, you start again!!!! Keep going! Keep fighting,,, in the end...you will win!!!! Let's fight together

Anyways, I just want to say TY to all of you who have been, and are, on this journey with me for your support, encouragement, ispiration, for everything! I couldn't have done it without you my dear ladies, thanks! Let's stay strong!

Happy friday, hope everyone has a a great weekend. Well, I think TOm is finally here and I am not feeling that great so I am going to just rest today. Chat soon, keep up the great work everyone .
