Oh! Another thing I wanted to share/ask...

Do any of you have personal goals for daily water and/or fiber intake? I have noticed that fiber, even more so than protein, is the thing that helps me to stay full between meals. I really like Fiber One (original) cereal with bananas on it. Also, apples and vegetables tend to be high fiber. And I TRY to drink two 64-oz bottles of water every day. I've heard Crystal Light finally has a 'natural' drink mix, so I may check it out. I do get kinda sick of plain water.

Just thought I'd ask!

Fresno- So glad the scale is in your favor!!! I am NOT getting on the scale till Monday- I am afriad it might read the same.. who knows!

I drink over 100oz of water a day easy! I drink it with a straw, and it helps..weird I know. I carry a 36 oz water bottle around with me at ALL times!

AS far as fiber- eeeh I dont really pay attention to how much I take.. I have flax seed in my oatmeal and I try to make sure most of my non veggie and fruit carbs are fiber!


Hope you have an awesome weekend- I am sure I will be on!!

Wendee: I'll have to admit, just reading your posts makes me 1. exhausted (in a good way) 2. encouraged & 3. accountable to my own exercise regime!! You seem to have so much energy! But I will tell you, we are similar in weight and I DEFO don't think I look so well in my present weight as you do! U GO GIRL!!!
My hubby also thinks I am an addict of this site--partly b/c I AM. I get out of bed, and I can think of a million excuses to not exercise or I say "y bother?" but then, after reading a few posts, I am so encouraged! I pull myself together and think--if ALOT of other ladies don't "wanna" do this and DO, so can I!!

Fresno: Thanks for starting this thread! It is just plain HARD to loose 20-30 lbs and keep it off when that's all you have to loose! Water really isn't a problem for me. I really only drink 3 things: Water, Diet Coke, and Merlot (and in NO particular order) I do however struggle some days with not getting my 64 oz a day in. But using MFP (my fitness pal) HELPS!!! If I c I have a couple cups to go b4 bedtime, I usually just gulp them. I take Maca and Alive (multivitamin) and I ALWAYS try to drink 12 oz when taking them!
When I work out, I keep 32 oz with me, b/c I am one of the ones who has to drink drink drink during the workout!

Happy: I feel u on the "tots and fries"! My DH is a junk food fanatic! (His weight shows it, but he really isn't interested in getting control of it and I don't push him). Just this week, I came home after Zumba class to find a Large pizza from Little Caesar's on the eye level shelf of the fridge! I said to him "REALLY!!! Will u please remove that from the eye level shelf"

I am extremely happi this morning. I got a new scale and validated it with my MD's scale yesterday. I've been off phen for 4 weeks and this was my first real weigh-in since. I'm down 2.6 lbs!!!!!!
I re-weighed this a.m. just to be sure that's really what I was from overnight and I am now 157.6

Today is jam packed: Zumba, theatre, and dinner. I'll be on late tonight! Have a FABULOUS Saturday

((soon 2b de-escalating ticker)) HA

Happy Saturday, ladies!

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm staying away from the scale for a few days since we had PF Chang's last night, and it probably had more sodium than I've consumed in the past two weeks. lol!

Taking a bit of a rest today. We're going to run some errands and hit the local 'Earthfest" then see some live bands tonight.
I'll get back on the exercise wagon tomorrow.

Have a great day! Keep up the good work!

Hey everyone!!

K9Owner- Im glad I can have an impact!! And thanks for the compliment on my pics! Im only about half way to my overall goal, but I have realized it is taking FORVER, so I am just going to concentrate on my mini goals!


Went to kickboxing this morning!! And then the family and I went to a local breakfast joint and had some brunch! I had a california scramble- 4 scrambled eggs, tomato, avocado, and peper jack cheese- I only ate half of it, so I have breakfast tomorrow! Then we ran some errands... I found a few books at hastings called, "The Clean Diet". It seems to be the best option for me, so I am excited to get reading. I also bought a cook book by the same gal, so I might try one of those for fun tonight!!

I might go on a jog later, we will see.. I think I might take a nap- I never EVER take a nap.. but I deserve it!!

Hope your Saturday is awesome!!

Hello
I have 30 pounds to lose also so I hope I can join in.

Since three weeks I finally started with the last part of my "changing my lifestyle" plan. In the previous year I abandoned take-out food, sodas, most sweets and all kinds of animal flesh in my diet.

Now I begun the 30minutes a day cycling, 3 times a week weight-lifting and doing crunches and 1700 calories a day regime.

It went well so far. I was 162 pounds three weeks ago and now am 159. I know it isn't spectacular, but it has been a stable, slow weight-loss without any deviation from my program and without making me feel tired at all.

I know I am not the type that can do extremely tough and quick changes all at once, this is why it took me a whole year to prepare for my diet, doing small gradual changes each month.

Now I hope I will endure through the rest of my life eating healthy and less.

I can always use support

Is it too late to join? As of this morning I have 30.36 pounds to lose. Sorry it's so exact, I weigh in on the wii and have to multiply it by 2.2 to get from kg to lbs . I've lost 34.32 pounds already (so I'm just over half way there!).

to everyone, especially the newcomers to this thread.

Busy weekend for me, but I managed <1400 cals Sat and <1400 Sun. I love Zumba and go 3-4x/week. I went Sat and today, I ran 2 miles. I am going to weigh every 4-5 days and post the results. I have never weighed every day.

Hope you're all having a great weekend

To convert kg to pounds, the # x 2.2= pounds
To convert lbs to kg, the #/2.2=kg

Hey hey everyone!!

Welcome newcomers!!

This weekend was great for me! I didnt workout at all today- too busy with Family things, but I went to bootcamp yesterday morning! If yall wanna see what kinda workouts I do, here is a link to my kickboxing class- I am in all black with pink gloves doin the side step thing!! Its a ton of fun!! Check it out..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5b0Ph...layer_embedded

Saturday's are my "free" days but I did pretty good.. the only thing that I really ate that was off track was a buttermilk buscuit with butter and jam for breakfast- other than that.. I was on track!

Last night I made spaghetti- all from scratch! I picked up a book called the Eat-Clean Diet.. and so far I LOVE the idea behind it. So of course, my spaghetti was "clean". I also picked up a book called "The Eat This Now! Diet" It has some really yummy low calorie all natural recipies as well! YUM!!

DH got layed off from his jobon Friday- so we have been pretty stressed with all of that! YIKES! But other than that, things have been good!!

Hope ya'll had a great weekend!!

Hope I'm not too late to the game here but I need to drop 30 pounds at least and need all the support I can get.

This morning was one cup of Raisin Bran and 1/2 cup of whole milk (can only do whole) and lunch is a tomato and a sausage which is from last night's dinner. Usually I plan my lunches better but time got away from me this morning. Tonight will be one cup of cooked pasta and tons of steamed broccoli with a touch of olive oil and plenty of fresh squeezed lemon.

I've have wanted to cycle home from the ferry I take to my house but was worried about not making it up the hill through my village but I acutally made it yesterday - with my six year old daughter leading the charge! No swim lesson this week but I'll be off to the pool on my own to do the work I need to do.
