Okay, I'm hopping into this!

I want to lose 25 lbs. by the summer time (or at least 15 and tone up!)

I've started C25K I hope I can keep up with it this time. I'm trying not to go crazy because I always make the same mistake of going all out and then giving up after a month because I'm sick of it.

I'm actually not too concerned with the weight, what I really want to to become healthy through exercise and an increase in my fruit and veggie intake. That being said, there is still room for chocolate in my life.

Welcome everyone! Definitely room for newcomers

I am finding this kind of easy this time Just slow changes, better choices, and eating until I am satisfied not stuffed. I am reading labels but not obsessed, not counting calories etc. Let's face it, I've done this so many times the wrong way that I know what I am allowed to eat and what's good for me. I am just paying attention to planning and being really easy going about it. It's working for now

Ok, I'm down by almost 4. Doing slimfast, protein and low carb. I plan to get down to 105 ish.


Just HOW stupid do you think I am, exactly?

dameia, I did C25K last year (or the year before? time flies!) and LOVED it. I hope it works well for you! I used to hate running, now I find it very relaxing and centering.

ETA: I wasn't eating any differently while I did C25K though, so I definitely didn't lose weight from it.

Good to hear that you got over your hate of running Amazonia!! I really hope it works for me. I hate running, but I really want to love it, if that makes sense. I feel like it would be such a wonderful stress reliever.

I am definitely working on the diet while doing the C25K, although it sure would be nice if just running was enough.

okay, having a bad couple of days here. I'm blaming PMS but I know it's my lack of willpower.

I gave up yesterday on logging my food diary at MFP because I didn't want to see how bad it was, but I made myself complete it tonight.

it was really...not good. and I'm sitting here really, really wanting the cheesecake that I passed up at dinner tonight. even after seeing the total amount of calories I've already eaten today.

tomorrow will be a better day, right?

Focus on protein - I think I actually ate MORE and gained weight while I was originally doing C25K because I was eating the wrong stuff (empty carbs!!)

I just weighed in and I'm down another 2.4 pounds since last week; 15.4 down so far. That means I'm more than halfway to my goal!

Sunday weigh-in = 153 lbs! That's a loss 6 lbs this week for a total of 12 so far!

I am a little surprised because I had a few cheats this week. I had some wine (only made it 10 days without drinking), but just a glass and a half, which is a major cutback for me! I also had some tortilla chips and salsa one night - but again just a few, and yesterday H and I both had one piece of bacon each - it was soooo good!

I think the main thing that helped me keep losing is that even if I had a small cheat I went right back to the diet and didn't chuck the whole thing because I was a little bit bad (didn't fall into the all or nothing trap). And I kept up going to the gym and drinking tons of water.

How did everyone else do?

inconnu - sometimes when I am Really craving something or just want to reward myself I can justify being just a bit bad, like having a bite of that cheesecake instead of a whole piece. Then I get right back on track and little harm is done compared to having a whole piece.

I swear, successful dieting is half calorie counting and half mind-games!!

It's not mind games!! It's portion control! If you never let yourself have anything delicious, you'll never make it. That's how people fall off and give up and gain everything back.

That bite of cheesecake? That single piece of bacon? Those four chips with salsa? Those things are healthy in their own way, because they're controlled portions. You realistically aren't going to go the rest of your life without ever eating another piece of cheesecake, drinking a glass of wine, eating chips and salsa, eating bacon. The difference is that you're having one small piece (instead of the whole cheesecake), one glass (instead of the bottle), a few chips (instead of the bag), and 2 pieces of bacon (instead of the whole pig).

Sunday weigh-in.

5lbs down. (At only 5 days in, faster than it should be but been 'helped' along by a nasty migraine yesterday).

Could of course also be unreliable scales, and in case we have ordered some better ones online today.

cool! down 1.4 lbs since last week, despite me veering off onto the PMS road instead of following the road I want to go on.

I'm hoping to get down to at least 140 by the TX g2g in March, and this puts me at 150.2. 10 lbs in 2 months is do-able.

Good post Ama! I guess I was practicing portion control. I don't plan to give anything up for the rest of my life, but I was trying to stick to a strict diet (Medifast) until Jan 25th. I didn't make it but I'm trying to keep the cheats to a minimum AND in perspective. Thanks!

Everyone is doing awesome!!

I lost 1/2 lb. Almost 6 lbs total so far. I thought it would be more, but I guess I need to up my exercise.

Great job everyone!

And I must heartily agree that it really is about portion control and not depriving yourself. Like the before mentioned small slice of cheesecake vs a whole cheesecake.

Sunday Weigh In = 273.2 down 2.2 this week! Crediting this to some increased water intake and managing to get some cardio gym time (at least 1 day - lol) in before work. And of course my new weekly SI weigh in team!

Congrats to everyone!!

I am 5 pounds down this week for a total of 7.

For me it always comes off pretty quick at first. I'll have to shake things up later in the month when I stall.

I am still finding this time to be very easy and comfortable. I am eating. In fact, eating more than I did before. I am just eating smaller meals more often and making WAY better choices. Instead of eating nothing all day and gorging myself on some awful fatty dinner I am starting with a nice breakfast and snacks and I eat every 4 hours or so. Just had my banana

I am more calm about this than I have ever been. It really seems to make a huge difference to be working on my attitude and the all or nothing thinking.

I had birthday cake the other day when I didn't plan to. Oh well, I just got back to it. So different than before when I would have panicked. Seems it's taken me almost 40 years to learn balance but I am getting there.

ETA) I will be joining you on upping my water intake this week. Slow and steady wins the race!

I saw Dr Oz (I really don't like him as he pushes too many supplements, but...) and he said do not deny yourself treats/cheats. He said the first bite is the most satisfying, and kind of like an addict, we chase that high of the first bite. He said take that first bite and ENJOY it... then rinse your mouth (I brush my teeth when I can) to get the lingering taste out. It's all about learning to be satisfied with a little instead of a lot (which is my problem!)

Hi Everybody!

I need to join this thread in a big way! I got home from vacation a couple weeks ago and hit the scale and was like "Oh, that's not so bad." Then yesterday I got on and I had gained 7 pounds from that day! WTF??? My total gain in the last 18 months is 13 lbs and that is just not ok.

I am currently training for a half marathon and so I guess I am compensating too much with the calories. I also know that when I train hard, my body does tend to retain water but still....ugh. That weight is "real" I need to do something as my pants are a bit too tight today.

So, tracking my food starting today and going to lay off the alcohol until my race (4/7) I'd like to see if I can go down by 15.
