  • @kesslemg I love that quote, "I'm back to living my good." That's exactly what I'm after this week. Getting back to my good, serious, dedicated and ready to finish this next month strong. I had a great session with my trainer today and plan to do a major power walk and gym session tomorrow. Then, back with the trainer…
  • My life is in a major state of change right now, some intentional and other things not so much. It has been a long time since I have dealt with so much stress, uncertainty and anxiety. But my reactions and resilience this time around are much different (better) and I attribute that to taking better care of myself and…
  • This is such a great reminder for all of us. You are so right. Often, that immediate scale jump is just excess water and bloating from overeating and too much sodium, etc. So glad you went on to have a good day and didn't give into it. Hope you all have had a great weekend!
  • Get it out of your house. Seriously, I had to be hard on myself. There are just certain things I cannot buy or have around me or I will indulge. I finally admitted this to myself and had to keep these things out of the house. At the very least, keep them out of sight and hard to access. I used to give my son his own pantry…
  • Mm mm, this Sunday morning I am having steel cut oatmeal with cinnamon, cardamom, coconut flakes and walnuts. Hearty and delish!!
  • Hi there. I have lost 75 but am working towards losing 150. Feel free to send me a friend request. You can also find my motivation and support group in the community. It is called Lean on Me Fitness Goal Achievers. We set weekly goals and check in on our progress regularly.
  • Hi everyone. It's been another busy and stressful week for me at work, but I am enjoying getting caught up on everyone's posts this lazy Saturday. Despite my work stress, I have managed to take care of myself by eating well and exercising six days! I've started walking in the mornings for an hour. I am dog sitting for a…
  • I will work on getting Jonathan back in here to respond to the questions. More soon!
  • @curlymop3 I think you did pretty darn good even with a school vacation week. Your plans for the new week will help you get back on track. I'm going to check out your diary so log some food this week. It is fun seeing food items from other countries. I have a friend in India and another one in New Zealand and I like seeing…
  • Bringing our UK friend into our same thread for the week.
  • @Sillybee727 I can't believe how much one yoga session has done for me already. I know I was awkward and self conscious, but I stayed right in there the whole time and did all the positions. I can't believe how much I sweated and it was a real workout while also being incredibly therapeutic for me: mind, body, and spirit.…
  • Clara Belle and Lily Mae, my pretty in pink walking partners.
  • So happy to see you @RREnterprises.
  • So glad you found us! @RREnterprises. Navigation here can be a bit challenging. I have had the week from hell at work, but at least I am doing good with my fitness plan. I wanted to stray big time tonight, but went to the gym instead and then sat in the steam room for 30 minutes trying to cleanse my body and soul. Here's…
  • I love this! I think I will do this, too!
  • I am so excited to come here each day and read everyone's posts. I have come to realize that this is not easy for anyone. No matter what your fitness goals are, it takes dedication, consistent effort and daily support to truly make positive change happen in our lives. There will be bad days. Off the wagon days. Days when…
  • Hi Ashley! I'm so glad you found us. You're in the right place to help you share your goals and support others in their fitness quest, too. I think 15 lbs in twelve weeks is certainly doable. What equipment did you buy? How are things going? Be sure to post on the week three Monday thread to start the week out strong.…
  • Hey, everyone. We made it through the weekend. I had a rough day on Saturday, but got back on track Sunday. Just got home from a killer workout and I feel so much better for doing it. It was my best cardio session to date and I kicked *kitten*!! An hour on the elliptical, 75 flights of stairs, level 10 and then did weight…
  • So true! I fell off the wagon, too, yesterday big time. I felt like crap. Then, I realized that my jeans are looser and I also have more energy. A few crappy days in the course of this 12 week quest can't keep us down. Glad you are back and fighting to stay in the game. We can do it, together!
  • Keep up the good work and don't give up on yourself. My mantra: Don't try to strive for perfection, but strive for progress. Setting reasonable goals for yourself every week and stringing all your progress together over time = success! I'll send you a friend request and an invite to a motivational challenge and support…

  • @martinezkrauss - I'm thrilled to hear about your new groove. Doesn't it feel great? I feel the same way. I'm not doing everything perfectly and find that I am definitely drawn to eat (especially sweets) when I am bored, tired or stressed. Figuring out these patterns and then making a concerted effort to change them, is…

  • @Isabelle Seriously, -30 temps! I visited Canada once in January - never again. Your profile photo is so awesome it makes me think of summer. I guess that is why you are doing a back flip, because you are happy it is warm! :smiley: Have a great weekend. Will enjoy hearing about your bodyweight routine. Is that like TRX?…
  • @kesslemg My parents are in Indiana, too! I'm in Rhode Island and the polar vortex hit us last night and will last through the weekend with below zero temps. It is supposed to warm back up, however, early next week. So I challenge you to get to that spinning class on Sunday. As I challenge myself to get in TWO gym visits…
  • P.S. We have our very own "Jonathan" as a member of this group, too. @martinezkrauss - the awesome dude with the rooster who went head-to-head with his mother-in-law's strawberry cake and managed to get home without an extra slice and had us all dreaming of cake for a week! (hahaha) Going to get my butt kicked now by some…
  • Hi everyone! Jonathan will be able to see and respond to any questions or thoughts you pose to his article above, so feel free to engage him in a conversation on this thread or message him via MFP (Nage3000). I'm really enjoying my new interest in weight training and can already see and feel the difference after just two…
