I am going to try and send suggestions, tips etc via email to keep us on track at least once a week. Below are our goals. L’s Goals are: 1. Lose minimum 10 percent of body weight 2. Exercise everyday that I don't work , total ..2.5 hours per week minimum 3. Increase fruit and vegetable intake 4. Increase water intake 5. Cut back on carbs 6. Once a week eat one meal, whatever I want 7. No processed foods 8. Eat when I'm hungry only Her motivation is to live a long life for my kids C’s Goals are: 1. Run/walk at 5k 2. Try and do the Gr Grind in August What I commit to is: 1. Cardio work-out 6 days a week for 45 minutes a day 2. Weight training 3 days a week for at least 15 minutes – I hate weight training 3. Eat clean – if it is not real food then I’m going to try and not eat it 4. Try and eat between 1,200-1,400 calories a day What will motivate me is my health. I want to stay healthy!!! T’s Goals are: 1. Lower her blood pressure - do not want heart disease or have a stroke 2. Lose weight for Cancun in April 2015 3. To beat C S’s Goals are: 1. I would like to lose 20 pounds in 20 weeks, but hopefully more. 2. Get my fitness level back to where it used to be, or at least close to it. 3. Do the Grouse grind with C in August. I am committing to: 1. Exercising at least 4 days a week but preferably 5 days a week. I will be doing a combination of cardio and weight workouts. 2. Log my foods every day and stay within my daily calorie goal. I think the hardest part for me is going to be working out on the days that I work 7-3. I have to get up at 5 am in order to get to work on time and then I am exhausted when I get home. I need to find a way to get it done though! Last edited by cardav51; 06-12-2014 at 03:19 PM.

I think you need to find a way to deal with the stress. I hear exercise helps Don't let this stop you from reaching your goals. You need to keep going as I know you can do this.

Seems like to much to lose in 1 week, but weighed myself on multiple scales to confirm. Last edited by cardav51; 06-12-2014 at 03:15 PM.
 06-12-2014, 03:12 PM #12 Junior Member     Join Date: Jun 2014 Posts: 12 C's - June 9th Worked out in the hotel for 45 minutes. Ran for 90 seconds, walked for 90 seconds, ran for 3 minutes, walked for 3 minutes, repeated twice. Then walked for the remainder of the time. Being away I found it difficult to find healthy food. I discovered, I need to ask as most restaurants are able to accommodate special request.
