Default 20 and looking to lose 85 more lbs..... need a buddy?

Hello, this is my first time here and I had to Join. I have been on a diet for 2 weeks now and could use some support. I do best having to tell someone what I ate each day and how much I exercise. I find that when I have to tell someone I failed, I strive harder to succeed. I would like to talk daily to someone that will help me stay on track, and I would love to help someone else in return! Does anyone wana be my buddy

Although I don't have as much weight to loss, but I've hit a plateau and having a buddy would really help since I really have to watch what I eat.
So here it is:

Breakfast:
Cinnamon Toast Crunch - 120 cal
Milk - 80 cal

Lunch:
Pizza - 250 cal?
Little Chicken Skewers - 280 cal?
Vegetables - 50 cal

Snack:
Chicken Skewers - 80 cal

Exercise:
3 Mile Walk - 250 cal

you did good today, I am doing great compared to my regular eating habits. Today' menu was:

Breakfast: Weight control oat meal

Lunch: lean cuisine- chicken w/ spinach cream sauce

snack- hand full of almonds/ raisins

dinner is to be determined

exercise seems to be my problem, I need to make the time, check back with me tomorrow and hopefully I have made the time.

I get so frustrated because I have so far to go. It just feels like it take 1 weekend to gain 10 lbs and a month to lose it.... why cant the weight just fall off??? Some one give me a magic pill!!!!!

I have set a goal for my self for the next week: keep up with the new eating habits, but exercise at least 4 times this week!!!!!

I will check up on you tomorrow...

Sure girl I'll be your buddy. Because I need someone to help me loose 20lbs for the first weight loss after that I need to loose 20 more pounds to get to my ideal goal weight. Its good to start out gradually because you don't want to shock your body. But let me recommend a Workout Video by Fitness Guru Donna Richardson girl she has the #1 Fitness Video in America! Thats saying alot its called Sweating in the Spirit here's her Website where you can read more about it. www.DonnaRichardson.com She has a very energetic workout plan here she has live performances by the top people in the Gospel World such as Kirk Franklin the Energetic one Yolanda Adams the Humble one and lets not forget Shirley Murdock I think she has so much energy for the Lord. You will get in touch with your Temple aka Body and the Lord your Almighty Jesus

Here's my Email Address [email protected] Just to keep in touch and see what progress you're making. But if i'm not online because you know I'm in College and have Tons of Homework I'll get your email when I do come on or when I get time to check my email I'm taking 15 credits this Semester and its really keeping me Busy. But you can also pm me

Stay Blessed

Hello everyone, I would love to be support to anyone and everyone. I just went out and got The Biggest Loser Work Out DVD and I tell you what, that video is really good. The things they do in it is easy to do but hard on your muscles. I worked out to it for 30 minutes and I don't think I ever felt so good. It was worth the $10 I spent at Wal-mart. I would really recomend this video to anyone. But anyways, I will report back with my calorie intake once I have ate a few things!!

Hi there newyear! I'm 25/f and I have around a hundred pounds to lose still =(

Since you're just starting a healthier life, I'd recommend concentrating on one thing at a time. It seems like you're doing great with eating healthier! Slowly adding exercize here and there, and working up to a more comprehensive exercize regimen works the best for me.

I've heard that it takes 20-30 days for something to become a habit, so if you're interested in the longterm, I'd go for eating healthier right now, and getting in some exercize when you can. When you feel like you've mastered the eating, and it doesn't take that much willpower to go out to lunch and have a chicken salad with dressing on the side, rather than the french dip with extra cheese and french fries (one of my favs!) then you can move on to adding more exercize.

I'm in the process of getting back on the health wagon, and I'm focusing on food right now, and exercizing when I feel motivated to do so. I know that I WILL get back to that point where I get up in the morning and automatically jump into my exercize clothes, but right now it seems so hard to imagine! I'd love a buddy.

I agree...take small steps for each goal. If you choose a large goal, you're more likely not to reach it and get discouraged. Then you'll stop making those life long healthy choices.

Please join a group...it's in the "groups" forum. There are alot of different groups. But they all have one common goal...losing weight.

take care!

Na, the chocolate cake wasn't so bad since I only had a tiny little slice. To make this work, I allow myself some food I can't not resiste. Because of the plateau, someone gave a suggestion that help them getting over it. I am suppose to eat a lot of calories one day, and then cut back a lot the next day. Do this several times and shock my system out of it.

So Sunday:

Breakfast:
Cinnamon Toast Crunch - 120 cal
Milk - 80 cal

Lunch:
Herb Roasted Vegetable Pasta - 250 cal
Potato Crusted Cod Fish - 300 cal

Dinner:
Veal Parmigiana w/ Pasta - 660 cal
Garlic Bread - 130 cal

Monday
Breakfast:
Milk - 80 cal
Chips Ahoy 100 cal chocolate chips - 100 cal

Lunch
Chips Ahoy 100 cal chocolate chips - 100 cal

Dinner
Milk - 80 cal
Chips Ahoy 100 cal chocolate chips - 100 cal (these things are good)

Exercise:
