Default Miami Here We Come!! 4 Month Transformation!!

My wife and I are going on vacation for my 29th birthday at the end of Oct. We are starting this log to keep ourselves motivated in our new fitness endeavors and hopefully get a bit of support from the community here. We're both starting over in our health and fitness quest as past efforts have been hit and miss. I feel like 4 months should be a good amount of time to see real progress if we work hard and stay focused. If there are any questions for either of us please feel free to ask. My wife will be making her account later and updating her info etc.

Daddy's Info:

Weight: 190
Goal Wt: 165

I want to start going back to the gym, eating better, and ultimately look better. I'm going to try and get in the gym a few times a week with some lifting and some cardio. My diet will consist of mostly meat, vegetables, some fruit, and a protein shake sometimes. High protein, high fat, semi-low carb approach. I plan on giving updates about how my experience is going a few times a week. I'll try and upload a picture soon so we can have progress pics and before and after pics to compare. If anyone has questions feel free to ask.

Mommy's Info:

Weight: 216
4mth Goal Wt: 176
Long Term: 125

Hey Everyone!!! This is my first time posting anything online. I have no clue what I am doing. LOL... Its a really good thing I have a very supportive husband!! So a little about me... I am a mommy to a soon to be 4yr old little boy and a 3mth old girl. At my largest I was 265, I am currently 216 and would love to be 125 again. I am trying to get out of the habit of turning to food in times of stress, sadness, nothing else to do and so on. I would like to be happy and healthy again. Look sexy for my hubby, and be around for my children and our 2 crazy dogs.

Welcome! 3FC has been a great support system for me, lots of wonderful people. Also, my husband and I started our weight loss last year and we have lost about 190lbs between the two of us. It really helps having someone else to do this with!

Good Luck!!

ETA: Love Miami Beach and the Keys!! Have fun!

Just out of curiosity is there any other moms who work full time and have young children? My oldest is 4 and youngest is 3 months. I am just wandering how people find time and energy to work out. yes, I know I am lazy. I am eating better and less, but I don't feel like working out after work. I also am gone for long hours so I feel like I don't spend the time with my family like I should. Oh and my house is a mess. Does it get easier?! Any suggestions?!

Welcome! It's great that you are doing this together and have each other for support! Mommy, I don't have young kids at home any more but I do work full-time. I'm an early bird so I take advantage of that time to get an early workout at home before work. I'm usually up around 5am or so and ride my recumbent bike or go for a wog (walk/jog) with my dog if it's nice outside. I also get to the gym over my lunch hour a couple of times a week--usually weight training. When I get home I'm usually too tired to work out but housework is good exercise for everyone! Get the whole fam involved! Crank the tunes and see what you and your husband and kids can get done in 30-45 minutes. Best of luck!

Thanks for the advice! My husband recommended waking early for a walk but its hard to wake up early when i am up most of the night with a 3 month old that is teething. Something I guess I just need to do. :/ lol...

Mommy, I recently stopped working outside the home, but our kids are about the same age. Especially with my 4 month old up so often at night, i choose to get as much sleep as I can rather than wake early for exercise.

I restarted on May 1, and since then I have only been Calorie counting. I also make an effort to incorporate active play into my time with my kids. Now that calorie counting has become mostly routine, I plan to add exercise in again. This seems to be a good path for me; you may consider it.

Best of luck to you!

I second Sunny's advice. Focusing on diet alone is enough for now. You'll drop weight just by doing that.

Sleep is important for health in general, but also for weight loss. It's better that you get the sleep you need than deprive yourself to exercise.

Eating healthier foods and dropping some pounds will give you more energy. Maybe at that point, fitting in some exercise will be more doable. And no, you're not lazy!

Things are going decent this week. I'm losing weight so far, but I will only report my weigh-ins from Monday mornings most of the time. I had fajitas at lunch b/c a rep took my co-worker and myself out to eat. Of course I could have ate something else, but I didn't. I haven't made it to the gym at all, but I've been doing a bit of activity with my son outside. I need to get with the program ASAP.
