Default I wanna be a gr8 big loser!

Yes, you read the title correctly! I want to be a gr8 big loser. Of weight that is. I am ready to start being a loser, would love some company along the way. What makes you a loser?

I have a plan, first is to start working out again. I have dusted off the treadmill and been walking on it, 3 times this week so far. . Second, I am getting a few books from the library on healthy eating and portion sizes. Third is to: Just do it!!!!

Cheers, Rooschick

Hi rooschick.. ..looks like my plan is the same as yours. Dust off the treadmill and eat smaller, healthier portions. I have been doing this for .. oh a week and a half or so now, and already feel better! If you need company, let me know.
Later!!!

Hi Nona .... I hope I soon feel better about it, I really don't enjoy doing the workout, but I feel super after I am finished (maybe cause it's over??? teehee)! I'm still reading about the dieting part ..... but I did write down what I ate today. Actually I inherited a disc from TOPS that is like a food and exersize diary, so I installed it. Interesting. Might be quite helpful actually. I did go over what I am supposed to have, but only by 100 cals .... so I guess that's a success. How did u do today?

Hi rooschick,
I did really good yesterday thanks. Ate lots of raw vegetables between meals and had a good walk when I got home from work. I have to start drinking more water though....I have to force myself. Unless I'm thirsty, water isn't something I reach for. I can't count calories...I am just cutting back...some days more than others. I have to think of this as a lifestyle change rather than a diet...because it's something I want to be able to continue when I've reached my goal weight. I feel really good about it right now...and hope this feeling continues for awhile lol...take care and I'll talk to you later!!!

Hi again rooschick,
I was thinking, maybe we should set goals for ourselves concerning exercise. We both have treadmills, we could each do a certain amount per day...? what do you think?

Thumbs up

Hi Nona,

goals 4 the treadmill? hmmm, ok .... I have one already. To get on it and walk. Which I had not been doing till this week. Sounds awfully simple, but so far so good. I did 24 mins yesterday, with a bit more incline(5% then 3%) . I am going to have to work into this, I have a bad knee and it needs a bit more strength to go more than 25 mins just yet. But that will come. I am so ashamed to say the first day I could only do 10 mins, with no incline and super slow! Progress already!

How did you do?

Wow 24 minutes is awesome for your first week! ... On a good lately I do 20...but I get bored....I need to hook up a tv or something to keep my mind occupied. At the moment I have a white wall to look at lol . When I started I was at the 10 min mark too....and felt pretty darn proud every minute done in activity is a minute less spent in inactivity. My treadmill doesn't have an automatic incline so I tend to just leave it as it is....I have to manually lift the thing and re-peg it...I don't think so lol. Feel free to message me on yahoo anytime, it should be on my profile.
Talk to you later....

manually lift the incline .... hmmm is that weight lifting??? hehehe. I did watch some tv while I walked today. Yesterday I read a book, grab a large print one from the library, easy to read while walking. I have gotten 4 days in this week and I am feeling pretty awesome about it!
