Elizabeth, thank you for all of your support! You just radiate with encouragement for everyone. Once I get my picture scanned you will get to see me. Both you and your husband are very lucky people.
DivaLaRed, Thank you for your kind words. Some days I could fall apart. I could scream about everyday at least once. I am glad that I am finding the strength to say I need to take care of me. PS My boss knows I am on a diet. So he is supportive too. Thank God!
Sarah,That is all I see water, water and water! I do drink a lipton diet green tea every so often. You can avoid a lot of food at the bakery because you get tired of it, unless of course it is something you really like. It doesn't smell as good in the bakeshop as it does outside, so that is a plus.


11.3 miles One day I will be able to do that too. We all will.

Catherine

Elizabeth-Thanks so much for getting this group started. I am proud to be a part of it. Good luck on the cruise, that would be a great incentive for me if I wasn't terrified of water. Sounds like you have wonderful support at home. Thanks again and keep up the great work!!

Erin-I think we are both in the same boat, trying to loose the weight by July for a wedding. We can do it. Being able to walk into those weddings with our heads held high will be great!

Lisa-WOW! 11.3 miles! I can only imagine. That is amazing! I am only up to 1/2 mile with weights on an inclined treadmill. They would have to call 911 if I attempted 11 miles. Great JOB!

Diva-3 miles is terrific, keep up the great job.

Sarah-Hi! I got started dieting on WW and lost 17 pounds. I stopped going but continued on my own. It really is a good program. I hope the Firm series is working well for you. You can do it. I love being called a LOSER!

Lori-I used to do the same job as you do, it's hard work and stressful. I think it is great that your husband is doing this with you. I'm sure it helps a lot. My husband does help me cook at home but most of the time it's covered in grease if he makes it! Baby steps is the way to go. Keep up the great work!

Stacye-It is great that you avoided having the surgery. I know a few people who went through with it and it is painful. I, like you, have tried many things over the years but the old fashioned way is the best.

JoAnn-Welcome! Talking to others really helps me stay motivated.

Redefinition-Hi! I hope the exercise and nutrition program are going well! Sounds like you will have your work cut out for you with that workout. Good luck, you can do it!

Ingrid-How is your program going? It sounds great!

Katie-I have watched the National Body Challenge before and it really does make you think about all the unhealthy things you have in the house. I hope you got your shopping done. I have trouble shopping. I get in the produce and fruits, wanting to try something new, and then don't know what goes together or how to cook fresh vegetables.

Catherine-I am 36 with an 11 year old girl and a 7 year old son and I work full time. I couldn't imagine having to take care of anything else. You are a SUPER woman. I had the blood pressure and swelling problems before I started loosing weight. Since then all the medicine is gone except for an occatssional fluid pill (when I eat too much pizza). You are doing such a wonderful thing. You are a strong woman, keep up the great job!

Wendy-Welcome! We're glad to have you here. I just joined the site on the 13th so I'm new too. Good Luck on the LA program. I know you'll do great!

J-You are a great supporter. If more husbands were like you we would probablydo a lot better on our diet. My husband doesn't say a lot about my weight, he loves me either way I guess. He's put up with me for 16 years now!

I hope I didn't miss anyone, this group is getting big! If I did please let me know. Today has been a pretty good day. I have not overeat, yet! I walked by 1/2 mile and my daughter is cured. No more sick children for a while! Hope everyone had a great day. Keep up the great work, all of you!!!!!!!

Default Winding down...........

Good evening Ladies......

I wanted to ask if any of you are keeping a jornal on the Journals page of 3FC?? I started one, but it is hard to make entries during the work day! I am doing good to keep up with you guys here in the threads!

I made a giant chef salad tonight that should last me the next couple days, so I am happy about that. When the BF is off the road, he cooks, so when he is gone, I am ALL about convenience and quick fixes! LOL

Elizabeth and Jason, that picture DOES scream happiness and I am so glad to see two people working as a team, not only in marriage but in the fight to be fit and healthy!!!

P.S. Someone mentioned being excited about seeing weigh-ins and progress and I wanted to let you all know that I am NOT stepping on that #[email protected]&*! scale until my midpoint of St Patty's day! The scale is too de-motivating for me and I am choosing to use my clothes as a measurement for a while instead!

Default I'm new

I'm extremely new here so I hope I'm posting this correctly. I'm also extremely new to restarting my diet. Tomorrow will be my first day back. I haven't had a chance to read all the posts cause I don't get much time to myself but I would like to be apart of this group so I can have a little encouragement from people who understand. Even when other people say something to compliment how well I've done in the past it doesn't really sound genuine. It sounds like they're saying it just to have something to say. I might not get to visit often but it's nice to have somewhere to turn when I need a pick me up. My weight gain actually started with an illness but after wards it progressed with 3 pregnancies and inability to control my eating. I have 3 small children 6 months, 2 1/2 years and 4 years old so you would think I get plenty of exercise but obviously not enough. I currently weight 195. I would like to be able to get back down to 130 but I'll settle for enough to be able to wear my wedding rings again which was about 145. They haven't fit in over 4 years. My anniversary is in 4 months so I'm hoping to have made tramendous headway. Everyone keeps telling me to set a goal but I know if I set a specific goal but for some reason don't make it I'll get discouraged and fall behind so I would prefer to just do my best and look noticably thinner by then. Which is why I didn't make a New Years resolution to lose weight cause I never keep my resolutions. My self esteem has suffered tramendously. I don't like going into public, I hate having pictures taken, but it actually hurts to look through all my pictures of my boys and not have any of me with them. I'm surrounded by skinny people, and skinny people just can't seem to understand what over weight people are going through. None of my boys sleep well so I'm up at least 4 times a night which makes it even more difficult because I feel as though I've been up for 2 days so I'm hungry and should be aloud more food. I have to stop myself from grabbing snacks in the middle of the night. I feel like I've written a book so I'm gonna go for now and I'll be back when I get a chance.

Smile Wow



Wow! This group of women is growing fast. It is so nice to hear from everyone. To all of the new ladies, I am fairly new, too. Let me tell you , you WILL get the support you need here.

Well, I gave in to temptation. NO I did not eat! I weighed myself today. I was going to wait until Monday. But like I told you we have that big scale at work. So it made me feel good when I saw that I had lost weight. Now just to get to the exercise. Then I would be doing really good.

I am going to the store tomorrow and find something to work out to. Probably get some small weights too. Can't wait until the program at work where they will give an exercise ball and show me ways to use it.

Well, I am going to go! Probably check in later. It seems I cannot get enough of all of you!!!

Catherine

Default It's Hump Day!!!

We're almost to Friday! YAY! How is everyone's week going?

Here's my stats for the week, both actual and planned:

Monday - stayed within my points on WW. YAHOO! Exercised to The Firm at home. Total exercise (with stretching section) totalled 1 hour.

Tuesday - stayed within my points on WW. YAHOO!!! Went to the gym and did 20 minutes on the stationary bike (7.2 miles) and 20 minutes on the elliptical machine (only 1.2 miles). Total exercise = 8.4 miles, or 40 minutes.

Wednesday - so far am staying on track with points. Tonight will do The Firm again, with stretching, for a total of one hour. YAY!

Thursday - Will stay on track with WW Points. Will go to gym and do elliptical, bike, and treadmill for 20 minutes each.

Friday - Will stay within points and do new Firm video.

Saturday - Will do FUN exercise video like Crunch Cardio Dance Blast or Walk Away The Pounds. Will stay on track with WW points.

Sunday - FREE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monday morning - plan to weigh in for a loss of at least 1 pound.

Everyone, I hope you are having a great week.

QUESTION: Anyone found any helpful tips this week? My tip for the week would be add a citrus wedge to your water. It makes it easier to drink when you're trying to drink those gallons....lol....

Hey everyone!

Just checkin in on "hump day". This week has been pretty good, but I seem to always go over my 1400 calorie limit! Happier news - I was able to do my entire 45 minute TaeBo tape last night without pausing the tape! (Yes! I've been dying to use that carrot!) I LOVE TaeBo! It just gives me that wonderful burn feeling!

How is everyone else's week going?
