dmc, Thanks for the link! There's some good stuff there!

I have been doing Weight Watchers but I don't attend the meetings. I count points. As far as exercise goes, I ride the exercise bike several times a week and I recently started doing the Biggest Loser sculpting video. I know adding more exercise would be a big help to my weightloss program.

This group is the BEST!

Good morning all my BFF"s.... I hope everyone has a great day. Think positive and be strong minded. I'm glad we are all checking in everyday it really does help. So to recap some things. First of all I can't spell worth you know what. So you might get some laughs along the way. Mytina knows this already and she goes with it. Funny I'm going to be a nurse and one that can't spell. LOL , but a very very very good nurse ...
OK so I have wheight goals for Me 136, DMC2009 139, and ONmyway 199, so let's see mytina we need you, ,your christmas eve goal is ......?
Second thing what day does everyone weigh in on? I do on Monday's I think mytina is Tuesdays? we need to support everyone on those day's so give us the scale day and we will support. Try not to step on it except for that day it gets to be a challenge and to easy to give up if the scale says we have not lost or that we have gained. Once a week is all we need it's about getting healthy and feeling good to.
Ok third thing is the steps I have mytina 1919 (not correct but put it down) DMC2009 4500, and me 12,305 so days total is 18,724 steps to go is 48,577
Ok so everyone try and get to ten thousand steps today and eat healthy think positive ... put a rubberband on your wrist and if you think you want unhealthy pop yourself and think of us we care and we are the best group around
Ok I have things to do today I will check in this afternoon.

Default Motivated to walk today - lots!

Okay, good morning all BFFs!!!

No worries, my spell is bad too! ;-)

I weigh in on monday morning! Yesterday I came in just under 1500 calories and I was not hungry at night! I was so happy. I saved just enough calories to have a little pretzel and PB before bed to take the edge off. It was an accomplisment.

I will put on my ped and walk today. Also, going to gym tonight.

Do you think I can make 139 by end of month??? REALLY???

I can't believe it! wow... fingers crossed!

Okay, I better get walking. So nice to have you all here!!!!

Hello! Finally back. Things are going okay. This week will be a challenge. It's my hubby and kids' birthdays on Wed and Thurs. Then we go out to dinner on Friday, along with drinks etc. and the kids' birthday party on Saturday. I'm also invited to a cooking baking party on Sunday, but will NOT be going. I did well over the Thanksgiving holiday. No weight gain at least! Working out of going fairly well. I'm still trying to do the Couch to 5K, just taking a bit longer than I expected. I'll keep trying! Went to spinning class last night. Kicked my butt! Haven't done that for a while. Tonight I'll run and do some weight training. I know if I can do well with my exercise the eating part will become easier.
Hope everyone is doing well. Will check back tomorrow!

I didn't work out today. The in laws left this morning & the pretty much took up my two hours of free time in the a.m. ... I will have to work out extra hard tomorrow.

Thanks for all the great idea's BFF's you are all so motivating! so, you want a goal wt. .. hahahaha... I seem to just add on the wt. while you all take it off. so, let me see I am at 144 now.... lets just say 135!!!!! wow, I got chills!!!!

Default Pedometer today * 16073 *

Now that is not gonna happen every day.

So.. Just got back from the gym, and I am hoping that someone can tell me if you would eat more or less when you burn more calories????


Will I lose weight faster if I don't? Is it healthy???

thanks all and hope you are doing good!!

Default Hump Day

Hi all,
Up early and will get steppin' as soon as I get dressed. Got to admit, its kind of a hassle wearing the ped all day, esp in the bathroom.

Have high hopes of staying on track today. I have posted my daily menu in the forum, hoping to get some ideas what everyone is doing to stay low cal/low point.

Good luck today and I will post my Ped results later today.

checking in... need to go eat..breakfast/lunch... old habits are hard to break.. learning to eat small meals is a huge challenge for me! not that I eat large meals, ... I just don't eat much until dinner time... and I so want to change that.. I just don't get an appetite! I know Littlelindy has been through this with me... I promise I will break the habit..

I have my new Ped on... I am curious to what it will say at the end of the day... hmmmm....

I didn't get to hit the gym this morning... errands had to be run... but will get on the home treadmill later today.

K... BFF's.... go into your day with a fire under your butts!!

Had a decent morning. Ate Fiber One for breakfast with coffee, a egg, bacon,cheese sandwich for snack,but then chinese for lunch. Tasted good, but now I'm feeling ill. I should know better by now. Ugh. It's hubby's birthday today and the twins' tomorrow, so there will be cake until New Years. I will be working out today and also getting a massage. Need to do that once in a while.
Did my couch to 5K last night and lifted some weights. Felt good. Now if I could just get my eating under control!

Hi! I would love to be allowed to join your group, if you don't mind. I don't really have any friends around here to support me in my new weight loss endeavor. I live in NC and my bff lives in GA, but I'm choosing not to share my new undertaking with anyone outside of my immediate family. I guess I just don't want to deal with the rolling eyes, if you catch my drift. It seems that I am always trying some new diet...well, actually, it is more like I have the best of intentions but never really go through with it.

In doing some soul searching, I realized that I have to take things one day at a time and focus on myself one baby step at a time.

I see you are using pedometers and I would definitely like to participate in your walking challenges. I can't pick one up until this weekend, though.

Anyway, I would really like to join you if there is room!

Aileen

Welcome Aileen! There's always room for another friend, right girls? Having a support system outside the family is awesome. I started out about where you are so I know where you are coming from. This group will be great for you!
