I am reasonably new too. This Friday will be my third 'weigh in.' Keep us posted on your weekly progress. We can cheer you on as you regain control! I am in the same boat. I have to get control ... I started with 39 pounds to lose. I'm now at 35 ... My weigh in day is Friday so we'll see what the end of the weeks leaves me with
Thanks everyone for the support. I am using the daily food and exercise guide. It is encouragement for me to get up at 6:00 and fit in 30 minutes on the elliptical before the rest of the family wakes. I feel good being able to log the exercise and am ready to focus on the rest of the day's responsibilities (kids, work, husband, errands...) I'm on week two ... down 3 pounds ... It's nice to know others feel the same and have had success with the 'daily remake' ... Today I'm starting to have greek yogurt instead of my regular yogurt ... small changes over time...View Thread
Good for you for starting. My mother-in-law did very well with weight watchers. I did not. I have started what I am telling myself "A new way of life" ... not a diet. I did an Ideal Protein diet, lost a ton of weight then gained it all back plus. Then I tried weight watchers but I quit after 2 months. I didn't like the guilt i felt if I didn't succeed one week.
A week ago I decided to change who I am an how I think about myself. Every time I have to make a health choice (what to eat, what to drink) I tell myself "Remember, it's the new healthy you, New year! New me" and so far so good. I'm not sure how I'll be in three weeks. So try self motivation, write you short term goals down and try and exercise 30 min a day, even if it is a leisurely walk. Good luck and keep trying!View Thread
I am new to this community and am looking for support to 'stick with it'. I have 39 pounds to lose. I have lost weight before on the Ideal Protein diet but gained it all back + 20lbs!
I have to get back to a lean trim me for myself and my children. I anyone has tips or hints that help you stick with it on a daily basis please pass them along. I need to make a life change and it's always challenging.
