Hi guys! I thought I might as well hop in here as I'm on a new journey in my life! I'm down a total of 30 pounds since my heaviest about 18 months ago. Some of those were from the 'infidelity diet', but now it's not. I've lost 15+ pounds since May.

I've been working out with a couple of trainers doing Crossfit (free weights, cardio, etc) and have been seeing HUGE results. All in just six weeks. I'm getting great definition and am losing inches. But, I've noticed I've changed my viewpoint on eating, etc. Before when I would workout at the gym (without trainers), I would still buy sweets or eat bad foods. I'd rationalize it somehow.

Now? I fight the urge to buy/eat that stuff! It's like somehow I've gotten serious in my head about my fitness/weightloss journey. I still treat myself, but nothing like before.

Plus, my heart rate, blood pressure, and fasting glucose, are down. Yay!

It's great to see success here.

down 3-4 ish pounds since last post, 160-61. So I have still lost 3 pounds in 3 weeks, and the good news is in that time frame I have started eating more normally again. Sometimes I do forget to eat breakfast, but other than that, no more I diet, and I am still losing. so I have about 20 lbs to go for my goal weight. The wedding I am in has been pushed to August, so I have a bit more time. I am now just 6-7 lbs from prepregnancy weight and right in the middles of my default weight so all my clothes are fitting again. Keep up the good work everyone. Like a PP, the weight loss is one of most postive things going on in my life ATM, good for the old self-esteem!

Hi everyone, mind if I join? Since D-day, I am down 54 pounds, and am struggling to get off the last ones. Over the years, had gradually packed on the pounds. A dear member of SI had given me some tips, which really helped.

I work out like crazy and have just started kickboxing classes. I just am having trouble getting to my goal, since it has become closer. Nice to see everyone's success stories!

Shattered.. I always said that the scale is not the best indicator of success but I haven't really experienced that myself until recently.

Yes.. when you have a lot to lose it is very noticeable on the scale, but when working off those last few pounds.. it can be deceptive.

After my big loss I had an injury which kept me from my regular exercise routine. While I wasn't working out, I didnt really adjust my eating so I bounced up around 10 pounds.

I figured I could lose that easy enough when I got back into my routine again.

Well.. its been 2 months of 4-5 long runs a week and at least one core work out a week. During this time I have adjusted my calorie intake down and began eating far better.

This is far more of an intensive workout than I did previously. Over that 2 month period.. I havent lost a single pound.

I notice the difference in the mirror, with how my clothes fit.. and I am at a point where I am seriously considering getting my first ever six pack. Still.. that scale has not moved.

I have since stopped caring what the scale says.

I seriously fell off the wagon after I had my car wreck in Sept. Can we say stress (carb) eating?

It's a new month, the car stuff is settled, I'm 5 lbs heavier going into the holidays, and I am so getting back on the higher protein, lower carb lifestyle. Now I just need someone to stand over me and make me exercise.

Hey Maxiom,
Thanks, I had another person on SI tell me the same thing. Darden's book shows a person holding a pound of muscle in one hand and a pound of fat in the other, the muscle is much smaller. I also keep buying jeans, I have so many different sizes! My most recent purchases I thought no way would they fit, but they do! So I realize that muscle weighs more than fat, and I have extremely well developed muscles. I can lift my own weight, FWH says I am "crazy strong."

The good news is I lost another pound today, am going to keep at it, and my goal is in the first part of next year to get a tummy tuck to finally rid myself one and for all of that C-section tummy.

The truth is, it just feels so good to eat healthy food and exercise, I can't believe it has taken me all these years to finally realize it. Better late than never I suppose.

I can post an evil daily facebook reminder!

I've hit the gym every morning this week at 6 a.m. before work...been eating healthy. I'm down 4 lbs since last week, but I know that is just water weight.

I'm aiming for 2 lbs a week to do it gradually and keep it off, instead of losing 20 lbs a month and having it all come back after!

I start bootcamp on Monday, 4 days a week. And I will be doing Muay Thai kickboxing with my SO Saturday mornings (he's a fighter) so it works out well! Hoping to end the year 15-20 lbs lighter and get the rest off after the holidays.

Good luck everyone!

I hate this gain lose game......I just want to eat what I want when I want.......I hate having to feel starved or like I am eating bean sprouts 24/7 to lose a few pounds. I hate eating a piece of cake and the scale shoots up 5 pounds. I hate being hungry but I hated being overweight even more..

So I will get through another day of 1200 calories, go to my new Zumba class and suck it up

Ok, I had been having a standstill, but then started my kickboxing class. It is once a week, every Wed night. This week was week #3.

Every Thursday morning, I have lost one pound, except for this morning, I lost two!! I am doing regular workouts every morning, but this class is in the evening. So I still do my five days of elliptical and weight lifting and have added the kickboxing at 6:00 p.m. once a week, it seems to be doing the trick!

By the way, I am not a spring chicken, but my endurance puts those youngsters in my class to shame!

Everyone just remember that you have to continue to intake a percentage of fat and calories (good fats) in order to lose weight. It sounds strange, but if you're starving yourself, you're less likely to lose the weight. Also, the more water you drink, the less you retain (crazy!).

I recommend the Paleo Diet. I found that I can eat a lot, but because I'm eating food that my body was designed to eat, I still lost weight. I also feel much better, less bloated, more energy, etc. There are books you can get to go more in depth if you're interested. The Paleo Diet and The Paleo Solution are two good ones, and Everyday Paleo and Paleo Comfort Foods are two great cookbooks. Just my $.02!

weight has stabilized at 159/160 lbs. I still want to lose 20 lbs, so after the thanksgiving holiday I am starting the south beach diet. I also vacuumed up one of the basement rooms and turned it into my aerobics/dancing room, lol. I love to dance, I thought last night, why the heck not, we got the space and winter is about to be here which means being cooped up in the house. So come spring I plan to be a mean, lean 140lb hottie mommy, lol.

There's been several exercise related livingsocial and groupon deals in my area recently. I figured they were a message for me, so I got one for zumba and one for yoga. I'll see how it goes.

I've lost 15 pounds since finding out about the infidelity about a month ago. I'm a huge foodie, and I've been so emotional that I just haven't been eating.

But I'm happy about a good weight loss start. I still need to lose a lot. I'm walking, but I'm also thinking of maybe taking a dance class or something fun. I used to do ballet and I'm a black belt in Kung Fu. I really enjoyed it back in the day. Want to get back into something that's fun, exercise and socialable.

Somebody mentioned Zumba. Anyone taken it officially? What's your take on it?

Hi lmsmith, and welcome!

I have not taken a Zumba class, but have observed one when I go to kickboxing. It looks like fun.

I did try the Wii game, but found that I am completely uncoordinated and not at all successful with that one. I was thinking about purchasing a DVD to try at home instead.

Good luck with your exercising!

Checking in! How's everyone doing after the Thanksgiving holiday? I totally over indulged and now I'm paying the price But, it's day 3 of the Atkins Induction Phase and so far, so good. I hit the pool last night for 40 minutes after walking for 45 minutes throughout the day for a total of 85 minutes of exercise.

I would like to join this group.

I am in serious need of weightloss..

I had a horrible pregnancy with Baby #4 and was on bedrest. I gained 60 pounds during her pregnancy.

I was on my way to taking it off on dday when she was 5 weeks old. I lost 13 pounds that week of dday, but then started eating like crazy.

I am a tall girl and have a bigger structure, but was very attractive at 160 pounds a few years ago.

Now, I am clearly too much overweight and really want to get this weight off. I bought a treadmill two weeks ago and have started using it in the mornings. I have given up pop and am taking smaller portions at dinner, as well as cooking sensible meals.. nothing fried, staying away from red meat.

I did weight watchers once before after a pregnancy and loved it, but I just don't have the $$ with Christmas and me not working anymore to join again.

Does anyone have more tips I can do so it is not overwhelming and I do not get discouraged? I do not own a scale.. Should I get one?

Thanks.

Welcome Myheart!
If you were to spend money on anything, I would definitely buy a scale. I weigh myself every morning so I can keep track of my progress and setbacks. As of today, I have lost 59 pounds in the past year through diet and exercise.

The biggest factor in my weight loss (besides my husband's A) has been the book by Darden called Body Defining. I was referred to it by a good friend from this site, it has changed my life.

In a nutshell, it is 80% diet, 20% exercise. I never eat a meal more than 300 calories. I try to get 1/2 gram of protein per pound of body weight every day. Three meals a day, 300 calories each, and two snacks 100-150 calories each.

I buy the low calorie bread, 35 calories a slice. There is spray on margarine that has 0 calories. Lots of fresh vegetables and low-fat salad dressing. No cheese, very little meat. I also use the whey protein mix (they sell those big containers at Wal-Mart). Mix it with a little milk, very tasty and filling.

I have a home gym in my basement, but you really don't need one. I have been taking kickboxing at my local public gym, $17 for six weeks, and have learned a lot. You can jump rope without a rope, keep track of the time and increase it as you are able. Lift bottles of laundry detergent or fill empty milk bottles incrementally as you are able to lift them. I also started doing pushups, I could not believe how much they helped.

Feel free to PM me if you want more advice. I know how it feels to be overweight, and I am never going back. I felt so horrible on D-day, something I will never ever feel again. Take care.

welcome myheart! Having a treadmill at home is great. No need to hit the gym. Yes, invest in a scale so you can monitor your progress. Make water your best friend. Everyone has a different strategy for eating, but I've opted to go with Atkins as it works for me. Plus, it encourages less processed and more whole foods that I cook myself. I've lost almost 10 lbs in 10 days. Just make small goals for yourself so you don't feel so overwhelmed by your ultimate goal. Yes, you may want to lose, say 60 lbs, but it can seem like such a large number so instead, think "I want to lose 10 lbs" then, when you hit your goal, you move on to the next. This was something I learned in Weight Watchers. Good luck and keep checking in with us!
