Hello ladies! Lets introduce ourselves since there are some who will be posting here that I haven't messaged before

My name is Lori. I'm 27, live in RI, have a wonderful husband I've been married to for over 4 years who I have been with for over 9. No kids yet!

I started my weight loss journey (for the second time) in February of 2006 and met my WW goal of 162 in September of 2007. Decided to try to go a little lower, so I'm still focused on losing. I look forward to meeting you all!

Smile Introduction

Fabulous idea!

My name is Chris. I am a new Stay at Home Mom to a beautiful daughter who just turned one! (I still work ten hours one day a week as a children's librarian at a public library.) I have been married to my wonderful husband for 9.5 years.

I have been overweight my whole life so I really don't even know what a good goal weight is for me. Right now my goal is to lose 25 pounds so I can get pregnant again. I am 34 so I need to have these babies fast and furious.

I am currently renewing my teaching certificate with 8 hours of graduate/postgraduate work. The last time I was in grad school I gained back 54 pounds that I lost. I am an emotional eater so as soon as I get stressed, I am off to the fridge! So, I started this little group in the hopes that some accountability would prevent more weight gain and help with weight loss instead.

I hope this is helpful to others as well!

Default Hello Ladies!

I'm Dee (short for Danita) and I'm a SAHM to 3 wonderful kiddies. They are 8, 6, and 4. I am married for 9 years to a wonderful Navy man, and unfortunately we just found out that he is going to Iraq for a year to 15months starting in July. So not only have I just started back to school for my last class of my bachelor's and then the beginning of my masters, but I have to decide where to move while he's in Iraq (the choices are stay here(NO), move to VA, or go live near my parents), then actually move and deal with him leaving for the first time in 3 years(shore duty is a wonderful thing). So, I'm just a tid bit stressed and definitely need this group for accountability. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Dee

Well, I'm marginally less stressed than I was a minute ago... They had me blocked out of my class for some reason, but now I'm able to access it, so at least I can start. Apparently this month I have to come up with an aviation topic that is not too broad, and write a 10 page paper with an accompanying 5 slide powerpoint. Oh yay, lol.

Have a good day.. and if you have any topic ideas, let me know. I think I'm gonna go clean house so I can hop on the treadmill afterwhile.

Nice to meet you Dee! It must be hard to think about your husband leaving. Moving closer to your parents sounds like it would be helpful! I know what its like with school. I took classes for my masters while still working full time. Finished in December of '06. Good luck with school!

I suggest we have a weekly thread. So this thread will be for Feb. 4-10, then next week on the 11th, the first person to post should start a new thread for the 11-17, etc. Lets try to find a different name for the group, too! Suggestions?

Oh and I had WI yesterday! I lost 1 pound on my home scale, and 1.4 on the WW scale. My signature always reflects my home scale, so from now on I'll just post the home-scale ups/downs

I forgot to post today's accountability! I am on WW, so I will post points, etc.

Breakfast: Oatmeal, Orange, and coffee with milk (5.5)
Snack: chocolate chip banana muffin (homemade!) (4)
Lunch: Pork and sweet potato stew, 1 cucumber (cut up) (6)
Snack: Green pepper and 1 cup FF yogurt (2)
Dinner: Homemade split pea soup, FF hot cocoa, and a pear (6)

Activity points: 40 minutes on the bike @ the gym (+5)

Points total for the day: 21.5
Points target: 21
Activity points earned: 5
Activity points swapped: 0.5
Flex points used: 0
Flex points left for the week: 35

I might eat something extra tonight or switch up my dinner. Not sure yet!

Hello Chris, Lori and Dee!!!
My name is Misty, 28, live in So Cal with my bf of 2 years. I am a full-time Accounting Assistant and a full-time student, so I am always busy. I walk at lunch b/c it is the only spare time I have! I have been overweight for my whole life, except for a short span in my early 20's, when I was a exerciseaholic. I am calorie counting and have had my ups and downs with it. I aim for 1800 per day, 8-10 glasses of water and at least 30 mins of exercise 5-6 days a week.

For today:
B: Cereal with non-fat milk (244)
S: Multigrain wheat thins with cheese stick (230)
L: Pineapple cottage cheese with cantaloupe (280)
S: Granola bar (120)
D: Chicken, brown rice, steamed veggies (550)

Total 1424...I guess I will have to add something somewhere, probably some fruit after dinner. Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

Okay:
I am the oldest member of the group (everyone stand for the senior). I am Coralee from Tampa FL. I am 61 yo soon to be 62. Have 2 daughters and one granddaughter. I am a former Children's Librarian, psychotherapist, and customer service agent for a major airline. I retired in July of 2007.

I started gaining weight in puberty and used it to protect "me" from the world.
I am currently working on removing the holiday regain, and hope to loose another 4-5 lbs by Leap Year.

Yesterday's count:Cal consumed = 1200

Hi All, Sorry I'm jumping in a tad late. I'm Traci, 36 yr old mom to 4 girls 18, 15, 11 and 11 1/2 months. I'm also a grandma to a 6 month old. I'm engaged to be married in August and have a ton of weight to shed before then. Sadly I'm not off to a very good start as far as sticking to my plan in February, but thats why I'm here right I hope you all don't mind if I don't post each item I eat, I keep track in my fitday pc and my computer time is very limited. So I'll just post my daily calories.

My February Goals:
Calories: 1200-1700
Water: 64 fl oz (at least) daily
Exercise: Curves 3X a week and ANYTHING else inbetween (sundays off)

-----Todays Totals-----
Calories: 2032 (bad munchie TOM day, would have eatin a horse if it were standing in front of me)

Exercise:
30minutes Curves Workout and 30minutes Treadmill Workout

Water: 70 fl. oz.

Default Morning Ladies...

Just popping in to say that I'm off to a better start this morning. Drinking some water and going for a walk in just a minute with hubby, 1 kiddo, and the furkid. My eating was out of control yesterday. I just gave up and went with the stress eating...BAD Dee.. I also did nothing other than play Guild Wars on the computer. Today the plan is a walk, some breakfast, and then clean house before I hit the video game.

Later,
Dee

Children's librarian intro:
"If you're happy and you know it, clap your thighs....
Had a good day yesterday, still playing with my new to me television. Ran errands and continued to rearrange furniture. Trying to do callisthenics while my food is nuked. Now up to 90 secs. of continuous movement. Yay me! not)
4Feb08 report = cal consumed= 1960; cal burned = 3030; water = 2 liters

Had a fun weigh in experience. Jumped on the scale and it said 240 pounds!!!
Wow! 25 lbs lost in one week???? no the scale was broken... sigh. did loose though (had to use a different scale)
