hiya...A newbie Here
Well I have been looking for some place I felt comfortable on the boards that wasn't a challenge. You all seems like a nice bunch of folks.

I am not on any specific diet plan, more trying to cut out bad habits (ie no fast food, more water, more veggies, less eating out). I have started back with my walk away the ponunds tapes yesterday and still feeling ok. I refused to get on a scale because it is always so emotional. Me just knowing I had lost and the scale telling me I had either not lost or horror of horrors I had gained......so I my goal right now is to be consistent with the exercise and eating for a month and then weigh myself.

My Current motivation is my boyfriend says he wants me around for 50 years and he loves me just the way I am. I just feel like on the road I am on I will be popping pills for high blood pressure, or diabetes or something else and not be around as long as I could be. Also a more selfish reason I want to be able to get on a roller coaster with out having to worry if I can fit...

As for support, I think it is what others have said an ear to bend and the occasional shoulder to lean on. I always hate when you tell people you are trying to lose weight and if you fall off the wagon they give you the sad face.

Well anyway...Hiya....:carrot:

Obsidianbbw 08-29-2006 01:57 PM

Hope this Helps
I would try out recipes that are healthy and taste good and possibly not tell them them it is a healthy dish so they aren't biased before hand. Or make something for yourself that smells wonderful while the eat something they have had before to get the curious. What kinda of foods are you trying to eat?

Well I didn't work out yesterday and I realize I don't really want to work out everyday....so I am aiming for 4 days a week. Mon and wed are done. I had an uncle in the hospital so yesterday was a trip to sit with my aunt and grandmother. Also while I didn't work out Tuesday I managed not to get the snack I usually get on the way home from grandmas house. I am realizing there are certain things that I am just used to doing....One is grabbing something while I am in the car...as if it doesn't count while I am in the car. Also I notice if I eat breakfast at home I want to eat as soon as I come out of the train station. Anyway, so working on changing the bad habits.

Hope everyone else is having a good week.

Welcome to the group girls, It is nice to have new people to talk to, and get support from. There has been a lot of women come and go, but there is always somebody on here.

I have been really stressed out. Driving back and forth from San Antonio to Dallas for my sons doctors appointment. I have been eating like crazy, so I am sure I am going to go up this week.I went up 2 pounds last week. I am sure I went up this week. I dont feel the weight gain...you know how you can tell when you gain...i just know that I have been eating like crazy.

I am goign to work more on the next week. Just as long as I do not put everything back. I am still down 20 lbs. I do not want to go back.

My hubby loves fast food and junk...real high fat foods. I prepare healthy food as well. I would just keep preparing it, and let them complain...if they want something different then they have to make it on their own or not eat. For my DH and son, they eat what they get...if they dont want it then eat something else but I am only preparing one meal.

Well, I have tons to do today. Tanya

Here we go.
Well I have been pretty focused on the weight loss and I thnk I am going to weigh myself. I am using the scale at the gym since theirs is like the one in the doctors office and it should be able to go over 350. I have a digital one, but it is too wacky for me to use. Wish me luck.

tlujan1 09-05-2006 12:13 PM

BBW, how did it go weighing in? I have gained the last two weeks,but I know I was bad. Now this week I have been really good, but I started my period...so who knows how much I will gain this week.

See what happens. I weigh in on Thur. during WW meetings.


Wonder where every body went.

Obsidianbbw 09-06-2006 08:50 AM

tlujan thanks for the kick in the pants I have been walking around fearing the weighing, so am leaving a half hour early for work so I can go on....blah....I should not be this worried about an inanimate object. Will post again when I get to work.

1lb and a small NSV
Well I only lost 1lb, but I was so happy you would have thought it was 50.

I ate my way through the summer, so the fact that I haven't gained 20 more lbs was great for me. I kinda wished i had don't it before my restart 2 weeks ago.

Also I had a NSV
There are 2 ways for me to come home on the train. One without steps, but I end up on a crowded bus (its the second stop on the route) and With steps but an empty bus (first stop on the route).

So today I took the route with steps and it is about 20-30 steps to get off the train platform and 20-30 more to get outside to the but stop.

Well I walked up the first set with little to no problem and the second set got on the left side(side for faster walkers) and then ran for the bus that was pulling up. I was proud of myself because I am usually cursing and have to stop for 2-3 min to get myself together.

I noticed the thread has been quiet. Wondering how everyone else is doing.

tlujan1 09-09-2006 04:43 PM

Hey BBW, I love the fact that with weight loss, you can be more active. I find myself being able to walk up the stairs now with out having to call an EMS when I am done.

I am down another 3.4lbs. I have been under so much stress, and am looking for a Tai Chi class to take. I hoping that will help with the stress. As most of you all know, Camdon, my son is going to have surgery soon. And to get prepared for that, we have been travelling all over TX to see different specialist. So, for 2 weeks I gain weight, but I didn't have a problem with it because for somebody under so much stress, it is not supprizing. I am glad it wasnt 10 or 20, it was just about 5 lbs.

I have been focusing on eating lots of fruit. So far so good. Peaches are really good this time of year.

Talk to you all later.

Hey ladies. I was posting on this thread a while back, but got distracted. Now I wanna come back. I am 33 live in NJ. I try and was 4 miles every other day. I ordered more Walk away the pounds DVDs so hoping to up it to 7 gradually. I am a size 28 now and usually after xmas I buy my jeans for the year, but I am hoping I will be smaller so holding off. How is everyone else doing?
