I'm STILL here! :carrot: Diana, you and I have to be two of the longest posters here..maybe Larry too. Where are you by the way? On vacation? Sorry I missed it.

My weight loss journey consists of running, weights, and at one time being more careful about what I was eating. My plan is to get back to exercising minimum 5 days a week, and being more accountable with food. I've decided to go low carb for the first time in my life. I started low carb yesterday and so far so good. :lol: I will allow 1 day a week for carbs at one meal. So...let's do this.

What keeps me motivated is having a trip booked in November for the 3rd time now. I gotta keep working towards the bikini body. ;)

:wave: Hello to all. Let's make 2016 a good one!! :)

Nichols, you're progress is really amazing. You go, girl. Seriously.

Novangel Hi :wave: I'm on vacation in Asheville, NC.

Looking to lose a kilo in January. My birthday is towards the end so I wonder if I can be 'ideal weight' (below 25 BMI) by then.

Diana3271 12-31-2015 09:47 AM

Noshoes Hi and welcome! :welcome2: Good luck with your goal.

novangel 12-31-2015 12:33 PM

So, I got to courage to get on the scale and I'm about 150p. :( *SIGH* The harsh reality is I'm only about 6p from my starting weight in 2012. It's almost like having to start all over again.

I know people are thinking a 10-12p gain isn't that bad but the big deal is I can lose 30p no problem, it's losing the last 10p that is almost impossible.

I'm about ready to just accept I will always be a certain size. I've been fighting this weight over 20 years. I get down to 135p and then back to 150p over and over and over. It's insanity.

I'll give it another shot but this is the last time. :mad:

Hope you enjoyed your time there. I've never been there but would love to visit the Carolinas someday.

Always remember what Winston Churchill said when the war was going terribly wrong and it looked like Germany would win. He said

"Never, never, never give up."

Personals Ė
Coolmom: I hate when your day is going so good only to screw it up right before bed! It happens though. Hopefully tomorrow will be better for you!
Diana: I have always wanted to zipline. That would be amazing!
Tootsie: Welcome! This site is amazing and supportive!
Goodyfay: 14 minutes? WOW! Thatís awesome! Love hearing that youíve lost 10 lbs since joining in on here! WTG!
Retrorabbit: Hopefully you get better sleep tonight!
Sorry if I didnít get to you! Hello all around!

Weight today: 139.6

Exercise: 1 mile so far

Calories: 778 calories as of right now. Still have dinner to go tonight and a New Years Eve Party so hopefully I can be good!

Pizza night turned out bad. Not because I ate too much but just because it was not good. I got a thin crust cheese pizza (lowest calories on their menu) and it tasted like paper. So I will not be doing that again unless itís the real thing. Iím hoping to get another workout in before the end of the day. We have a New Years Eve Party to go to tonight and I donít think they are having any snacks that Iím going to find good so that will benefit me hopefully. I donít know how Iím going to stay up til midnight. With my Iron and B-12 still regulating I am still exhausted pretty earlier (although it isnít 6-7 anymore)Öbut Iím ready to crash come 8 or 9 at nightÖso midnight seems pretty far fetch.

Iím going to try to get a turbojam workout in now so Iíll talk to yaíll later!
Everyone have a great New Years Eve!!

Thank you, Larry. :carrot: Actually you're the one that has inspired me to go low carb. ;) I'm on day 3, it's early yet but so far so good. :)

Larry H 12-31-2015 09:49 PM

Another Zero Carb day today this makes ten in a row now.

Went to an early New Years party with my wife tonight.

They served finger food and finger food = Carbage so I simply socialized and watched others partake while I drank several black decaf coffees.

I had a great time and enjoyed myself.

Two friends of ours told me they were starting Atkins tomorrow. We shall see?
My experience is many start and only a few of us winners stick with it.

If you would like to try Atkins low carb, this URL will give you a FREE PDF file of Atkins New Diet Revolution Book.
I read it and use it. You will find a list of what to eat and what not to eat starting on page 84.

Happy New Year's Eve everyone. I may not get yo do personals today. But I have been reading. Am on the iPad which I find challenging to use with the bold function. Although I am getting better at it.

Weight up this morning by 2.4 lbs. strict diet today. Should end up with around 700 calories and 13 g carbs.

Hope everyone is enjoying Jew year's Eve ! :newyear:

Diana3271 01-01-2016 08:40 AM

Good Morning, Everyone! :wave:

Today is our last day in the mountains. I just opened the sliding glass doors to let some fresh mountain air in the room. :brr: I am getting ready to have some coffee. :coffee: Today will be a travel day so no workout will be reported for me. I guess I could hit the gym before I pack but I am not THAT dedicated. :rofl: I will workout during my vacation but I don't do anything early in the morning. I should arrange for a late checkout when we travel. Anyways, wishing everyone a Happy New Year! I hope you had a safe but fun evening.

Here is a free New Years Challenge w/a super sweet instructor if you want to give her a try. The workouts are free. http://www.jennyford.com/30-day-fitness-challenge-2016/ If you like her, she also has DVD's for purchase.

Weigh In: 169.2
I am up around 12 pounds from my low. Crazy! I won't be 100% back on plan until tomorrow. I am ready to get rid of this bloat! CoolMom mentioned about being down just a bit over last year. With this gain, I am also down just a few pounds, so I will take it as a win.

Have a great day!

Good morning all!
Happy New Year! :grouphug:

Ready to get back to goal this year. Novangel I hear you, I'm up 12 pounds from last year, we did a reboot the last five days, so I'm feeling ready to hit it hard. I find that when I accept that this is the weight I'm going to be, that usually spurs me on to lose, so wishing you strength and success, low carb is good.

Larry your willpower is awe inspiring! WTG
Nichols sorry your pizza wasn't all you hoped for.
Flower :hug:
Diana :wave:

So, my check-in, planning on focusing on more fruits and vegetables, with a 5:2 intermittent fasting, logging food and exercise, and regular exercise, all things I've done before with good success.
W-177.7
B-oatmeal, cashew milk, zante currants, sunflower nuts, coffee w/half & half and one tbsp creamer
L- plan salad
E- day 1 of c25k with DH

Best to all :sunny:
