Hi Jen, I too think exercise is a dirty word. I force myself to do it, I always feel better after I've exercised, but I hate starting (and doing) it. I wish I found it fun. I love to go for walks in the woods, but since it's so hilly, it turns into exercise and I just look forward to being done. If you have any words of wisdom, let me know.

this is me:


i'm 5 feet even and as of today 214 lbs. i look like a linebacker
i've been overweight for 7 years now. i've been on every diet imaginable and had no long term success. seems like i lose a little and then stop.

i got a serious wakeup call in february:
~my thyroid is fine as well as my blood counts. my overall cholesterol is a little on the high side, but she was least worried about that.

bad news:
~my triglycerides are really high. the high end of normal is 150-160...mine is 227 we MUST get that down!!
~my level of "good" cholesterol (HDL) is very low. should be higher than 60mg but mine is at 15 we MUST get that up!!!
~one of my liver enzymes came back at 45. 45 is when they start worrying.


my exercise consists of:
cardio (mainly treadmill) 45-60 minutes 6 days a week
strength 20-30 minutes 3 days a week.

i'm not on any specific eating plan right now as i'm waiting to see my doctor on monday to discuss my options. i've spent this past week making a list of everything involved with my weight, physical, mental, emotional, etc. i've also done research on surgeries, pills, etc. i plan on taking all of this info with me monday. i also ahve another secret weapon: my mother in law (MIL) ...she's a very aggressive person when need be so i think it would be wise to have her in my corner when i see the doc.

hey marie! good to see you!
people look at me like i've got two heads when they learn that i honestly enjoy working out. i do, i love it. it is a stress reliever for me. after being home with my girls all day (mostly my 2 year old since my 7 year old is in school), i need my exercise time.
as far as exercise goes. find something you lvoe to do...walking, riding bikes, rollerblading, playing ball with kids, etc...the more you enjoy it, the more you'll do it is what i've learned

I FOUND U!!!

My name is Melanie but u can call me Mel. I am going to be 38 tomorrow and I made a dec that I dont want to be FAT at 39. My son is alway telling me ..."Mommy if u do what that lady did u could be skinny too." These are the wonderful ads on tv. I like to read, walk and listen to music. I do like to tan I figure brown fat is better then white fat. I tan real easier so I get dark quick. I know is not good for me.

I too hate execrise...My problem is finding time to do it. I work full time and get home around 5:45 and the time I get dinner started and dish done....play with the kids and I do go to my Sis and tan I am ready to fall down and sleep. I hope now that it is getting warmer and stay lighter out that I will be abt to get the walking in.

I love the support thing thanks Jen for setting it up.

SO come on ladies LET'S DO THIS!!!!!!

Default ok i made it =)

i was cleaning my car ...... thats exercise right ?

lol i'm kate i'm 33 for a couple more months at least. i've been exstatically married to jim for 12 year and we have two children, toby is 8 a real cutie, gabby (gabrielle) is 6 and a little tornado, she sure makes life interesting

i'm english and living in wisconsin i've been in the states for 8 years, liking it better now, was very homesick for several years, but i'm hyper and totally obnoxious (i know where my daughter gets it from ) and i make friends really easily.

i was 235lbs when i stated errrr 4 days ago lol and my goal is to be 150 i'm 5'7 so with my taller frame i carried my weight really well for a long time, so it wasn't noticable. now it is.

i have no reason for my overeating, i'm not unhappy, had a great childhood, don't hate myself, (infact i think of stuff all the time and crack myself up ) i don't have time to get bored and if i did i have a craft closet full of unfinished stuff i can do.

well thats me

ok this is going to sound icky but my stomach just kinda dropped and now its like this hangy thing did that happen to any of you ?

question:
what are everyone's goals? are they a set of small goals or just one large goal? what are you going to do once you reach those/that goal?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yey presents (i get more excited about the children on my birthday ! lol )

and don't worry about one bad day jen, we've got a very long road ahead of us, and i'm sure we will all fall back now and again.

lol lilac i was voted class clown every year of high school i have a warped sence of humor.

my goals well ultimate goal is to be 150 (i was 156 when i met hubby, and i was'nt super thin but a comfy weight my tummy was just a little rounded but not overweight.

my mini goal is to lose 20lbs by mid july (actually hoping for a lot more, but i figure that is realistic) just to prove my mother-in-law wrong and look better for the family picture. and my reward ..........
will be to say ne-ner-ne-ner-ne-ner to her .... well at least under my breath
