Default Coming Back Again

Hi all. I'm back again. I haven't really gotten anywhere with my weight loss since I was here last, but I haven't gained either. I am down from my all-time high, by about 10 pounds, but can't break past this 260 mark. I was below it for a few days, but it crept back up again.

I'm back in it again -- back to watching what I'm eating, drinking my water, all that good stuff. The one thing I haven't gotten back to, that I really must do, is exercise. Ugh. I hate it!!! But once I get in the habit, I tend to hate it less .

On a side note -- anyone else have a problem viewing the forum while using IE6? The pages just freeze up on me. I'm using Firefox, and nary a problem...

Welcome back, Darla!

I too am an exercise hater, but I figure why make losing weight harder than it needs to be by NOT exercising? My losses totally stall when I don't do it.

Glad you've joined us!

Hi and welcome back!

I am too not a lover of exercise, not even a liker of it. You DON'T have to do major exercise in the begininng. A 15 minute walk for starters, you will be surprised how quickly you will be able to do more. Stretching, dancing, leg lifts. Just moving. I just keep adding movement to my day. When I'm brushing my teeth or washing the dishes or blow drying my hair - i kinda put a little extra wiggle in it. I know it sounds silly and it surely won't be gaining me any muscle, but it does burn calories. I no longer use a laundry basket, yup I walk back and forth with first my dirty clothes and then my clean ones. Bathroom - laundry room- bathroom -laundry room. It takes me a few trips to fill up the machine. I try to sneak in exercise everywhere. When I'm picking up things from the floor, I have 3 kids and 1 husband, I do it a piece at a time, more bending down. I take out the garbage much more frequently. I'm not a big TV fan, but when I do watch I get up at every single commercial and do something. Straighten up a few things, wash a dish or 2, walk to the other end of the house, something. Because something is better then nothing and nothing is what I used to do. You'll see as you go along that you will be able to increase your activity level. This is another simple thing I do and often - I dance vigorously. Very easy and doable. And sit ups, you get to do these lying down, a big bonus, I started out barely able to do them, now I'm up to 2 sets a day of 78, very often 3 sets. The weeks where I move myself more, I lose more, plain and simple. Good luck!!

I've noticed that the phishing filter really slows this website down and even crashes IE on occasion.

Welcome back Darla! The fact that you didn't gain is a major accomplishment in my book!!

As far as IE - I never even bother trying to use IE to get to 3FC's anymore. It always froze on me for this site (and one or two other ones) that whenever I come here I always go through Firefox.
