You are too funny! I've found that I don't sample taste as much either, just in the day and a half since I've started. I'm really going to try for "no more spoon Licking" and all other such related activities.....
Diet, the infamous four letter word. I view this as a positive life changing experience. Better health, improved self sense and all those other great things associated with weight loss. I appreciate every bit of wisdom (and wit) which everyone has generously shared with me and I will glean those ideas which are compatible with my lifestyle. So keep on sharing!
Hmm, swinging on swings sounds much funner than stacking wood, but I see where you're coming from re: being open to new ideas. So maybe I need to try the swings again, I've liked it in the past
Hahahahaha, there you go again, I just love your Walmart exercise regieme. What a terrific idea! I think I'll take a cruise thu Target with a bag or two of pet food. Will get me out of the house and have fun and fitness at the same time.
Well, gotta run, I hear a hedge that needs pruning, calling my name....Have a wonderful day all...
Thank you so much for your reply. I love this site already. After reading your story, I have a renewed sense of commitment and "excitement" for accomplishing my weight loss goals.
As for the amount of weight I'd like to lose by June, I agree with the 2 pounds per week. So I may be close to my 50 pound mark in June (positive thoughts here), but by all means, I will be continuing on until I reach my goal weight of 140.
Exercise, exercise, exercise.....Yep, I do try to stay active, cause if ya don't use it, you lose it. Having had one knee replacement, I am so trying to avoid having it done again. One of the best ways I can prevent this, is to lose weight. Proper nutrition is great, however, exercise is an important component of the weight loss plan I am embarking upon. So, tomorrow morning, I will take my first a.m. walk!
8 calories per taste? Yikes! I will be measuring and logging my meals and snacks. I need this to keep myself accountable and as you suggested, to actually see what I eat each day.
I thank you again for your kindness and support, and look forward to keeping on track with this wonderful community.
Thanks so much for the words of encouragement and support. I totally agree with you re: looking within and figuring out why I gained weight in the first place. This will be my starting point and I look forward to discovering my strengths and weaknesses. Oh yes, ice cream. I too, cannot have it in my house. Dangerous stuff, that ice cream. I like your idea of rewarding yourself every thirty days though. I think I just may try it also! Again,thank you so very much!View Thread
Here I am, another try at losing weight....I just can't give up! I haven't tried the "community support" method, and have heard many great ideas aout it, so here I go......
I am a single female, age 52, and I would like to lose at least 50 pounds by June. Is this an unrealistic goal? Can I do it? My exercising consists of: walking my dog at the beach and thru out my neighborhood & gardening. I wish flapping my jaws could count as exercise....sigh. I do have a NordicTrac, currently gathering dust bunnies (literally, cause my "Bunny Man" sheds so much), and a stationary bike set-up. I have used them in the past, but after a few days, I kinda, sorta, give it up. Any thoughts on this? Help!!!
