  • How are your shoes? I had terrible knee pain until I changed my shoes. The right shoes for me literally ended the pain in a day.
  • If you go to the Waffle House you must have bacon with your waffle. Breakfast at any New Jersey dinner also requires bacon. Additionally, I will eat bacon when and where I choose. BACON TO THE END!!!
  • Good lord, is it Friday already? Shewhoismany January Week 1 PW:125.4 CW: 125
  • Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes. Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Nope. Would you believe I found more cookies in the freezer? I have cleaned out the kitchen, I should be good now. Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes.
  • Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes. I'm still training for a half marathon, so I do some running most days and I love it. I need to find something upper body I can stick to or I'm going to be out of balance. Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes. Pretty easy now that all of the Christmas cookies are…
  • shewhoismany December Week 5 PW: 125.6 CW: 125.4 The scale didn't move much so I need a puppy, possibly a Shih Tzu puppy. This has been your non sequitur for the morning. Thank you very much and have a great day! :smiley:
  • shewhoismany December Week 4 PW: 124.4 CW: 125.6 I wasn't going to post. I was going to hide under a rock and never come back. It is in my history to be unforgiving of myself. To quit when the road get a little bumpy. To hide from my failures. To fall of the track and never climb back on. However, you guys are so helpful,…
  • shewhoismany December Week 3 PW: 124.4 CW: 124.4 I tried to post on Friday but had site issues and yesterday I totally forgot. My apologies.
  • Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? No. Feeling awful today. Tummy upset. Headache. Didn't sleep last night. Couldn't run today. Tried to go for a walk but only made it to the end of the driveway. Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes. Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes. Yesterday, in…
  • Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes. I ran three miles. Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes
  • @BonnieHosk85 Mini Schnauzers are da bomb! My brother has one (Raven is actually my sinister-in-law's baby girl but my brother thinks she is his) and we had one (Mandy) and then litters as kids. Mandy was the smartest dog I have ever known. Still miss her after all these years.
  • shewhoismany December Week 2 PW: 125 CW: 124.4 I may fret too much.
  • Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes. 40 minutes of running, having completed the 5k training I have begun training for a half marathon in the spring. Running is good for my head. Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes. Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes, even that glass of wine with…
  • *sigh* I have been baking Christmas cookies for the past two days. Just the ones I'm not that crazy about - gingerbread, anything with peanuts or peanut butter, anything with molasses, jello cookies... but eventually I'm going to have to bake the ones I do like. Chocolate pixies, raspberry linzers, almond crescents, cut…

  • Thanks, @craigo3154 . You are correct. Keeping the head screwed on right will help everything else work out in the long run. I was signed up to run my first 5k today but at the last minute my 12 year old decided he wanted to go too. Ticking running a 5k off my fitness list took a back seat to being a supportive and…
  • shewhoismany December Week 1 PW: 125.2 CW: 125 130 was my goal but at 130 I wasn't where I wanted to be. So, I moved my goal to 125 but I still don't feel this is it. I'm not where I want to be fitness-wise or weight-wise. My lowest recorded weight was 102 lbs. which, in retrospect, was not a healthy weight for me. Looking…
  • @dmfaler I'm going to try investing in some better winter running gear. Treadmills scare me (what if I slide off the back!) and the only local indoor track is 1/10 of a mile - that is a lot of go 'rounds looking at the same walls. I am hoping that better preparation will carry the day. Did I exercise for at least 20…
  • Hi! My name is Karen. I've been a team member for a few months. I have found the support and camaraderie of the Gutbusters (go team!) to be of incalculable assistance in my weight loss and fitness journey. The past two months have been a struggle for me, maintaining everything while losing the support of cigarettes has…
  • shewhoismany November Week 4 PW: 125.2 CW: 125.2 Yay! Thursday and today have been off the charts. So, no loss, no gain, is still a win. I was good right up until the turkey hit the table... Now, it is back to work. Hopefully, I'll make goal in December.

  • The closest I came to a NSV today was I didn't crack and smoke a cigarette. In the seven weeks since I quit today was the absolute worst. Nothing worked to distract me. Usually, I can move around a bit or pick up my crocheting until the urge passes but all my usual tricks were worthless and I kept finding myself in the…
  • shewhoismany November Week 2 PW: 126.8 CW: 125.6 Maybe my doctor knows more than I do. Maybe I got lucky. Maybe I have been trying to skip the chips and salty things I love so much.
  • It's not for me but my sister-in-law loves it.
  • Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes. Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes. Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Ate, yes. Drank, nah. I ate back half of my exercise calories, just like I promised. I feel like a big, bloated rock.
  • @BonnieHosk85 I am running a lot but not eating enough spent calories back, according to my doctor. I promised to eat back 50% to start, get more sleep, and take rest days away from running. I'll follow his advice. One week of maintenance isn't a tragedy. I need to quit whining.
  • shewhoismany November Week 1 PW:126.8 CW:126.8 My doc said I need eat more so I raised my calories. I'm lowering them again. Weight gain is not my goal.

  • @elisepfliger04 Congratulations! You should be very proud of yourself, you are setting a great example for your girls. I know how hard it can be even with help. I am currently addicted to nicotine gum and slowly weening myself. It is going well but I don't care, I'll chew this stuff for the rest of my life, if I have to.…
