How did we already get to 9 pages and June hasn't even started? LOL (at least not on the West Coast)

I am so far behind with the posts that I will only say to all the new faces, it's great to have you around. Let's keep each other going for the whole month

To all my girls from May: I am so glad to have you around for another month.

I have to say, it seems like I am getting a hang of the exercise thing, but now I need to get tougher on the eating part. I have some good days and some no good days where all my common sense just seems to go out the window. So like I said last month on the exercise thread: please feel free to give me a good kick in the butt if I start to slack off

I am very curious: What is this challenge Delphi and Lene are talking about?

Have a great first day of June!!

Good Morning Ladies

It's JUNE!

Which means a new thread and a new start. Let me go ahead and say to mtphotochick and HisSweetGypsyRose. Glad to have you guys around. Good luck to you both.

Newshinyme ~ Just a standing joke from the old thread. Lene is going to up her exercise routine this month and she made a joke about squatting, crunching and lunging her way ahead of me. But hey this is gonna be your month. Simply try to stay focused on your goals. You did an amazing job last month, use that to push yourself this month. You will do just fine. Do you calorie track or count? How do you go about planning meals or do you? Eating on the fly? Give us some info and perhaps we can help you through this one kiddo!

Alright ladies, I just reviewed my goals for the month. I have my calender marked for my exercise routines daily and I "think" a plan to keep me at least 1200 calories everyday. I'm eating my Nutrigrain bar as we speak. I have exercise duds on, my bottle of water freezing in the freezer and my arm band ready to go. I have the worst sunburn from fishing yesterday but I'm ready to go. I'm ready to push myself further. I'm ready to remain healthy and I'm ready to start working on my goals. You ladies remember, the decision you have made to start living healthy and to lose the weight was the right one. A step in the right direction. Never go a day without patting yourself on the back for making that choice. Believe in yourself and drink plenty of water.

So that's it. If you can tell, I'm excited. So if you ladies would, raise those water bottles for a toast. A toast for prosperity, positive thinking...and here's to living a fulfilling, long healthy life.

Oh and don't forget your smiles today! And hey, if you wanna throw in a fanflippintastic to a random cashier or co-worker then, be my guest.

LET'S DO THIS!!!!!!!

Goooooooooooooood Morning Chickies and Happy June 1st to you all!!! :br oc:

Oooh Delphi's got me all amped up with her oober enthusiastic post! Are you ladies ready for a great month? I know I am!!! I am as committed as ever and rarin' to GO!

Got my upper body workout in already, ate my breakfast--which included FRIUT btw (for those of you who don't me, I'm fruit and veggie challenged ), got my water bottle all filled up and I'm all set for a great day!

Okay, I've got a question for the girls who do HIIT workouts. (High Intensity Interval Training) I'm really looking at this as my new cardio workout for this month. I've read that you only do it 3 times a week and just curious if anyone disagrees with that? Also, any helpful websites, books, etc. on the topic? I found a couple websites and even found some workouts--I plan on starting tomorrow--eek! I've read that treadmills aren't good for this kind of workout as they're too slow to increase and decrease, so that means that I'll be venturing public...where people can actually SEE me in all my huffing and puffing glory. It should be quite a show.

Alrighty girls...I'm with Delphi, I've got my glass (jug) raised! Here's to a ooberfantasticspectacularamazing month! Here's to new goals and a fresh start! Here's to positive thoughts and determination! Here's to wonderful support and friendship!!

Now, let's DO THIS THING!!!!!

And ladies, need I say it? I mean, do I really have to? Hmm?? Yes, yes I do! Girls, be sure to...

Still trying to work the kinks out in my plan (basic calorie counting + moving more). Finding I do extremely well all day but between 8-10pm everything goes to **** in a hand basket. I have an intense, mind consuming desire to eat even though I'm not hungry. I allow myself a small treat but still am finding that's not enough as I feel like binging. Oddly enough, all the good food shows are on that time of night. -.-

Hope everyone else is doing well. Good luck all!

Atgirl ~ What do your meals look like during the day? Are you getting enough protein especially for dinner? How many meals are you eating a day? Just a few questions, so perhaps we can help you through this. You keep at it kiddo!

crazymomma ~ I'm soooo glad you are pumped and ready to go. When we get excited about weightloss, it definitely makes the whole experience that much more enjoyable. Now regarding interval training...mmmm not sure. I haven't made it that far yet. Sorry, wish I could be of more help.

dollypie ~ Welcome aboard! Enjoy and good luck dear!

Mornin' Delphi

Yesterday I had raisin bread with two pieces of low fat bacon for breakast. For lunch I had a healthy version of a mexican salad and for dinner I had a chicken tortilla pie (from a low calorie cook book). Total calories were 1628 for the day including the late night snack.

Welcome MTphotochick, Janis427, and Dollypie!! I've added you to the list! So glad to have you! Good luck!!

It sounds like everyone is getting off to a strong start! Good for you ladies!! I woke up to find I had lost another lb!! Woohoo! Of course, it was too late for my May goal and too early for my June goal, lol!! But hey a lb off is a lb gone forever, so I am happy to make it a part of a great June starting weight! So my goal weight is 177!! Woohoo!!!

SW: 187
GW: 177

Atlgirl, do you like green tea? Green tea is a natural appetite suppressant. If you could get 3-4 cups in a day, it would really help and you could sip that last cup between 8-10 pm. If green tea is not your thing, then brush your teeth--floss, mouthwash, and all--and then pop some sugarfree gum in your mouth and paint your fingernails during that time, multiple coats! Do whatever it takes, but do NOT succumb to snacks or foods that you know you have no business eating that late. A good snack would not be bad as long as it is at least two hours before your bedtime, but after that *small* snack, brush your teeth! You may think in the moment that you just have to have more food, that it won't really hurt, but you don't, and it will, it's a mind trick, and you'll be miserable and beating yourself up the next morning! It is not worth it! June is your new start, chickie! You ARE going to break that old habit, and that's all it is--a habit--you're not really hungry; you're just used to eating then!! But this is June, a brand new start, and tonight, you are not going to eat lots that late! You're going to come on here tomorrow and tell us that you made it!! Okay girlie?! Woohoo! Here's to a new start! A new lifestyle! A new you! You can do it!
