Today I'm hobbling around work, it's not to bad now. Next week I start with a trainer, there is this chronic disease (I have diabetes) program where we work with a trainer 3 days a week for 8 weeks. I'm super excited to start. I just have to get a clearance from the doctor. I['m going in on Monday, getting my meds upped for the diabetes. So i'm going in the right direction. I've been watching what I eat, so the weigh is slowing coming off.
Hope you are feeling better. Waiting to get clearance from your doctor is definitely a good idea, you don't want to hurt yourself more. I have thrown my back out in the past and had chronic back pain for a while. I feel so bad you are going through that, it's awful pain. Take good care of yourself.

I'm here with all of you ladies as well! I don't remember when I ever saw less than 300 in my life. One day I wasn't, then one day I woke up and was 311 after I had my first kiddo 17+ years ago. I'm going to fight my way down there again. I want to watch the numbers creep down and push myself out of these 3's!!!

Kerri --- I know how ya feel!!! Too bad those numbers do "creep" by, but you know a few this week and a few the next - over and over - it's how it's done.

I've set up a reward system to get out of the 300's. As of now I am about 324. 316 - march goal of 10 lbs lost, I get a french manicure with shellac (oooo!!). Then from 310, 305 and 299 I have some salon products I've been dying to have. Hair oil, a styling cream and then the volumizing shampoo. Morroconoil line. OH IT'S GOOD. And expensive. I'm not a vain person but I've been learning the value of taking care of my appearance. As part of losing weight I'm trying to learn to focus on

I know you will be working your butt off so if I am tempted to stray, I will ask myself "wwjd?", which means "What would Jane do?" of course!
And that right there, is definitely enough pressure to keep me on track!

I'm super motivated today because I found my stats from 2006 (I had no idea what I weighed until I got on the scale in August - the last weight I could remember was from when I was 15), and it turns out I'm actually 60 pounds smaller than I was then, which is huge for me, because I was looking at the pictures and I could swear I was smaller, but wasn't sure.

One nice thing about getting out of the 300s is the weight comes off relatively fast compared to people who have less to lose. I know I won't see 3-4 pounds per week loss when I'm in Onederland.

So we should enjoy that while it lasts!

Forgot I had joined this thread and so glad I found it again. It's been a bad week with weight gain -- ten pounds -- not feeling well and trying to figure out how to have some energy. I finally figured out that some of the medications I'm on for high blood pressure are probably causing some of the problems. My doctor isn't too sympathetic because they're not life threatening in any way and we've tried just about every BP meds known to mankind. She keeps saying -- and she's correct -- that if I get the weight off she can lower the dose back down and I'll feel better.

So, thanks for letting me share in the trials and tribulations but especially the successes as I keep on this battle of trying to get below 300. I'm so stubborn that I'm determined to not let this beat me!

*hugs betsy*. Sorry to read about your rough week. And unsympathetic doctors drive me crazy, even if they can't do anything about something right at the moment there is a way to go about saying it. I hope you are feeling better soon. And I admire your stubborness!!

Hi all. I'm also trying to reach Twoderland--that's too cute, btw, and I've been struggling with this for awhile. I first reached the 3s during my pregnancy, almost 5 years ago and I've been stuck since. It's so frustrating. The weight and my lack of follow through to do something about it...Good luck to everyone and I'll definitely be following this thread.

Betsy - almost assuredly you didn't regain 10lbs of fat in a week! It's gotta be water. So hang in there!!

I know how hard it is to watch the scale go the wrong way but hang in there and it will go back down!

You can doooooooeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet

Hi ladies. How are you doing? I am getting really close to getting out of the 300's, probably a day or two away from being 319 which makes me really happy. So yes within 20 lbs is "close" to me I guess I've been working really hard lately on limiting my carbs and eating lots of protein and good fats. I started running my 5k program and am biking 45 mins a day.

I am having a HUGE craving. I really want to go to Lobsterfest at Red Lobster. It sounds sooooooooooo good. There is a $10 coupon for two entrees. I think I've picked out a good meal, harbor side lobster & shrimp - 470 cals, 13g fat, 35 carbs, 40g of protein. However the sodium is 2650mg!!!!!! Geeeeeez. That is SO MUCH SALT. I know I'm going to retain water like crazy, but gaining water weight is only a mind game.

I hear dandelion tea gets the extra water weight back off. There is some Jillian Michaels' recipe floating around the net with it in it!
