How's everyone doing on weight loss

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well I started in earnst on March 1st. Lost 3 pounds so far!!!
Walked/ran on treadmill last 3 nights. Taking tonite off. Eating very healthy, lots of fruit/veggies, water. No beer wine
junk food or sweets (I'm don't have many sweets anyway). I will allow myself a beer every 5# and pizza every 8#. Also a small present every 10# (like shoes!!) My husband lost 3 1/2 #-he's doing a modified Atkins. As I don't really enjoy eating lots of meat-that wouldn't work for me. Aiming for 25# so the clothes I have I can wear again and buy new stuff. I have bought a new pair of blue jeans in years!!!

So how is everyone else doing. Perhaps a weekly update so we can help everyone reach their goal?????????????

All it comes down to is:

Cut calories/burn more calories.

However you can do that healthily is a perfect plan.
I actually just did a continuing education workshop called the Metabolic Connection to Obesity (something we have to do frequently to stay group exercise certified), and honestly, what I said above is the only sure fire way to make it happen.

i used to be very overweight untill i moved to germany and kind of fell down in depression, i was scared of nearly evreything and my heart would beat like an idiot everyday.
I only ate twice a day which was barely nothing, and i mainly slept
This is how i lost all the calories.

I would love to buy a trendmill, but its like over 1,000 here and its too cold for me to go for walks lol

Its hard when we live in a cold weather climate-the weather isn't the best for doings lots of outdoors stuff yet!!!

For Fwan-start keeping a journal of all the food you eat and also how you feel when you are eating them. Use measing cups for exact portion measurements-you may think you know what a half cup or cup looks like-but actually measure it. You'll really be surprised!

I'm trying to lose weight too, I started with weightwatchers seven weeks ago and have lost 7.5 lbs. I want to lose another 20 or so to take me back to where I was before I had my children.

I'm going to a gym, doing exercise videos at home when I can't get there and last week I walked 25 miles in three days taking my children to and from school when we couldn't get the car out in the snow! I seem to be losing about a pound a week, not as fast as i would like, obviously, but at least I'm not hungry.

I had been gaining weight all of last year. By December I was up 15 pounds to 175. Once I had my tonsils out I dropped the 15 pounds in 10 days. (That's what not eating and doing nothing but sleeping does. It was horrible.)

So I figured that since I had a jump-start, I had better keep it going! I changed my diet - I don't eat junk food anymore and I don't eat out anymore. I haven't gotten below 160 pounds, but I haven't gained anything back and I can fit into all my clothes again!

I'm waiting until I finish paying off Hans' surgery, then I think I'm going to join Curves so I can get some exercise. I can't run or walk becuase I have a bad knee, and I can't afford home equipment, so I think it's a good idea.

I too changed my diet around right around mid - January. I had lost about 15lbs in Spring of 2004 and then slowly gained 5 back. So I decided to re-join a gym, work with a personal trainer and start eating right again.

Food wise enjoy doing the South Beach diet. It just works well for me. Although this time around I have not been losing the weight I want and I am starting to get frustrated and discouraged.

I guess I shoudn't beat myself up TOO much though. I don't have a lot of weight to lose and I am getting my butt into a gym 4-5 times a week. Hopefully the weight will come off eventually.

I celebrated my 2 year anniversary being firmly on my way of eating plan on 2/25, and had my lowest average of those two years 2 weeks ago (I'm a one step back two steps forward slow loser). I've lost about 73 lbs., and am working back up to at least 3 treadmill sessions a week (got off track around the holidays).

My comittment to losing all the weight I need to lose, remains firm.

My problems started just a few yrs ago when I had foot surgery. Never pick December to do this- I was off any form of excercise for almost 2 month, the holidays, eating the same amount of food and wham!! there came the weight. I never caved however and bought larger pants/skirts (just elastic waist ones) so this is the time-especially when I found out I weigh more than Oprah!!
