  • I'm back at MFP after several years of slacking & I'm puzzled by all these tracking gadgets. I don't really get it. 10 years ago I used a little pedometer & it matched MFP calories burned almost exactly. Now I'm using MapMyWalk, & it synches with MFP. The calories burned are the same. Do I need to track my steps, too? What…
  • As soon as my husband says the word, "diet," he loses 5 pounds. Don't compete with the other sex.

  • [email protected] [email protected]! :noway: 9 days of inservice????? That's cruel & unusual! :wink: :laugh: But the 4 days left with students sounds pretty good, though. We still have 3 weeks.
  • Hey! Does it count if a pound is missing today?!? yeeehaw!!!!!!!!!! :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile: Now the challenge is to get more to follow! :wink:
  • Yep. I'm addicted too. I come here everyday. :bigsmile:
  • That bugs me too. I'm wearing clothes right now that vary from 16 to 24! I have a few blouses that still don't fit that are size 20. :grumble: I have old clothes in my closet that didn't fit for a long time so I'm recycling them, trying to wear them out until I reach my goal & can buy new stuff. It's annoying.
  • That's great! Thanks for showing us your pics. You're an inspiration. :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou:
  • Well, I met my goals, but my weight stayed steady. :grumble: But I feel good about my workouts this week.
  • :flowerforyou: I think it's great! Good for all of you!
  • Good for you! :flowerforyou:

  • I didn't lose any weight this week, but I met all my exercise goals & my food goals every day but Tuesday. I just walked in a 5K cancer benefit race. :bigsmile: :bigsmile: :bigsmile:
  • So far so good. I wasn't able to get in all my workouts this week, but I donated blood yesterday on the way home from work. Tonight I did my 4 mile walk. Saturday is a cancer benefit 5K! I'm excited.
  • You'll do fine if you want to! :wink: You've had some good advice here. Just stick to it! Stay away from gravy, fried foods, gobs of dressing,butter, canned sugary fruit & desserts. Talk a lot. Drink a lot of water. You can do it! :bigsmile:
  • :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: You're such an inspiration!
  • When I first started here, I thought walking for 30 minutes, burning around 200 calories was great. :drinker: Then I was impressed by the folks here who REALLY work out & burn a LOT of calories on a regular basis. That was a completely new concept for me. So I started reading the fitness posts & was so inspired. I can walk…
  • You're doing great! Keep up the good work!
  • You're doing great! Everyone has to start somewhere & if you can lose 2, you can lose as many as you need! :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: Keep it up!

  • We can buy a small salad at school, but I think it's really over priced. My hubby grills chicken breasts for me on the weekend when we're cooking anyway. Then I cut up raw veggies so that each day I take celery, cukes, red pepper slices & chicken. I usually eat it cold, but you could heat up the chicken if you want.…
  • So far, so good. Everything has been logged all week. :bigsmile: 20 push ups - check :bigsmile: 100 sit ups - check :flowerforyou:
  • Good luck. That's a tough one. Some parents just won't let their kids take responsibility. It's really too bad. their kids are the ones who miss out. Hang in there.
  • Wow!!!! That's great! Good for you. :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou:
  • That's awesome! :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: You're doing soooo great!
  • You have some good advice here. I have a friend who asks for a take out container as soon as her plate arrives. Then she cuts everything in half & puts it in immediately. Everyone admires her will power & no one ever thinks it's weird. It works for her. I make sure I burn a lot of calories so I feel like I earned a…

  • Fridays are good for me. :flowerforyou: One flower for me! I logged my food, burned 800 calories, 20 push ups & 100 sit ups! wahooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I was curious about running/jogging, too. So during my regular walk, I started by jogging for 30 seconds at a time, then walked fast the rest of the time. I was amazed at how i was able to increase the jogging spells. Have fun!
  • We start testing this week - how about y'all? And of course, rain is predicted. :grumble:
