Re: Plateau

Maybe try intervals. You might want to check out www.noexcusesworkouts.com. Jonathan Roche has a very sensible approach to getting fit.

This is just what I need right now. I have always been a workout junkie-but the last 8 months-nothing! (I started a new job and th commute is about 3 hours a day) I just finished doing my "total gym" downstairs and I am psyched about getting back into it. (and to lose the 20 lbs I have put on in the last year) Not to mention-God, exercise helps my anxiety sooo much. And since I am 7 weeks out from DDay-anxiety issues have been huge. I am happy this is here. Let's do this together! HUGS

I need support getting back into working out. In march I started on my elliptical and some weight training and walking the dog daily. went from 140 to 128 from march to aug. DDay hit I quite working out and walking the dog and eating. Went down to 104 in oct. Even after a cruise in december I have only gained 2 pounds. I am eating, and its not great stuff I am a carb junky and love doughnuts and cinnamon rolls, white bread and butter and pasta! Some days I eat more than others.

I am 5'6" I know I need to gain about 10 pounds, but have to do it with excercise, because when you lose weight on the infidelity diet you lose muscle, I don't want to just gain back fat.

I just can't get motivated! I keep putting it off, I need an excercise buddy but live in the boonies and there isn't anyone to do it with.

NorCalLabLuv- I have P90X. It is hard and most of the workouts are 60-90 minutes a day. I am going to try to build myself back to being able to do them-but I need to start a little slower since I have been out of the exercise life for awhile.

OK...who has any good ideas on how to get more veggies into my diet? I am terrible at it, don't mind fruit, but besides salads I really just never work towards it. Tried the smoothy thing, can't seem to buy them and use them...any good supplements maybe or powders that might work? I know the actual veggie is the best, but I need to start somewhere.

Reality...I seriously recomment www.cleaneatingdiet.com

elanaspantry.com has good recipies

oxygen magazine (workout mag) has daily menu's and grocery list. Im going to begin doing this this coming pay check.

I like frozen veggies bc they keep longer. I know fresh is better, but...

Soups are great. Easy, too.

You can also do pureed soups. Just use the water you cooked the veggies in to puree the veggies. Then you can add milk and seasonings if you wish.

I was watching the Dr's on CBS. They did this smoothy with fruits and added spinach to it. The family they dropped in on loved it (Montel Williams was the house invader).

YOu can add veggies along side breakfast eggs or in a omlete.

Veggies can be added in arroz con pollo (using jasmin rice or quinoa).

Thanks for the site. I do need to do something this year.

Ended up eating lots of Christmas cookies and my son took a picture of me on his cell phone. Man, I don't even remember how many chins I had...awful.

I believe I have the Wii Active (not sure haven't used it in awhile) but if that's what it's called I didn't really like it. I want a good workout and it just wasn't working for me.

Anybody have the Biggest Loser Wii games?

I did the Alli diet 2 years ago and lost 20lbs in 5 months. I quit during finals week, didn't restart it after graduation. Told myself, after I start this new job and get through the stressful period of learning everything. Then after grandpa passes away there will be less stress. Here I sit 16 months later and have gained it ALL back plus 5lbs.
We are doing a Daniel Fast with our church-NO meat, NO sugar, NO caffiene and NO overprocessed foods. We started it on the 1st and it runs until the 22nd. Now, I am going to start back on the Alli and exercising too. If I can get a jump start during this first 3 weeks, I might stick to it. Hoping to get a Wii fit by the end of the month (should really help since we live in Indiana and it is REALLY cold right now). Also going to convince my H to get the treadmill back out of the attic and put it in our room so I can use it. Hoping for some major weight loss-50lbs over the next year!!!!

And I say again: noexcusesworkouts.com.

A very sensible plan. Free workout plans, and NoExcuses plan to buy, quite reasonable, if you wish. I learned of this through Flylady, for those of you who might be familiar with her....

Guys, if this is going to be a weight support thread, shouldn't we do something like post our "results" (#of lbs lost/gained, how much exercise we managed to get, etc.) on a weekly basis? Or perhaps select some target date in the future and post "before" and "after" results, pictures, etc? Kinda like WW has the weekly weigh-ins to help provide ongoing motivation to stick to the plan?

This is still an interesting topic for me, even though I am now on maintenance.

Decided I needed to take care of my health better after I discovered the infidelity/SA in my marriage.

Started at the gym and on a weight loss calorie regime on 3/13/2009.

Made my weight goal on schedule about 1 week before Thanksgiving.

Lost 74 lbs and 10" around the waist. Now at the same weight I was when I graduated from high school in 1960. Just in time for this summers 50th class reunion.

I continue my gym schedule and monitor calorie intake daily to maintain.

I have before and after pictures but I don't know how to post them

I'm in. An ankle injury sidelined me last year and I've gained back the 20 lbs I had lost. I have a total of 49.4 lbs to lose to meet goal (yea, I'm a bit anal about the numbers LOL) and at 1 lb per week, I should look damn good by Christmas of next year.

I am keeping my fitness blog again if anyone is interested in the link. I'm also doing the Couch to 5K program to get back into running in the slowest way possible.

Also, if you have an iPhone, there is an app for that C25k for $3.99, I think. I've also downloaded the Shape Flat Abs & Butt Lift apps for a nominal fee. Tonight I begin using them!

Oh, and did I mention I've had 4 co-workers suggest Medi-fast? They've all had lots of success on it and I caved and bought a month's worth of food to try it out. It's not bad, and I'm down 3lbs the first week.

I'm cautiously optimistic.

[Raising Hand]
Please may I join you?

I have been trying to lose weight for most of my (long) adult life. As I said in another post, I'm a serial dieter. The infidelity diet only lasted for about a week with me, then I started my usual response to stress - eating and eating, and the sweeter and more "carbohyratey" the better. That, coupled with more opportunity for my innate sloth, now that I am no longer working, have resulted in yet more excess pounds.

I started on Jan 1st, though I had an unavoidable festive meal occasion this weekend, which probably undid all the good work so far. Still, today I am back on track. I have reacheed the age where I abolsutely cannot lose weight without exercise. We have various exercise machines, but I find the treadmill the best, because on the others I have to push myself (and I ahte it so I don;'t), whereas the treadmill pushes me because if I don';t keep up, I start to fall off! But the best for me, and the most enjoyable, is my bicycle. I love it! I used it a lot last summer, but once the colder weather came I stopped. But I got it out again at the weekend and plan to do treadmill or bicycling at least five days a week.

Lost 74 lbs and 10" around the waist. Now at the same weight I was when I graduated from high school in 1960.

Stop, that is fantastic! What an inspiration! Esoecially for older women like me, as it proves that even post-menopuase, losing weight is not an impossibility. Congratulations to you!!!

Not_a_martyr I'm interested to see that you're doing the Couch to 5K program. I've loooked at the web site too and thought it sounded a really good idea. Are you doing it outside or on a treadmill? I tried it on a treadmill, but need to watch something to relieve the monotny and found I didn't have the coordination to watch a video, run/walk and keep an eye on the treadmill clock too! Maybe I'll try using a timer.....

I think your idea of posting weekly weight loss is a good one, Skylers_mom. I have ZERO desire to post my actual weight! But I wouldn't mind posting pounds lost. (If any - sigh)

Thank you, sullymeishadomi, for starting this up and encouraging us!

By the way, does anyone remember who the poster was who started an exercise thread in the summer? I wonder how she's doing. Maybe she'd like to post in this thread, too?

I've gained about 5 pounds or so over the last 6 weeks due to all the holiday foods I couldn't resist. Unfortunately (not) we just booked our 1 week all inclusive in Akumal Mexico for January 30th. I'm so excited. It's our first honeymoon type trip since dday. I want to be in tip top shape!!!

I started working out again today and need a support team to keep on the exercise and good diet plan. I will be on the thread daily to see how everyone else is doing.

I liked the idea of posting pounds lost too. Wish we could get a grid going or something that we could update weekly.

Thank you, sullymeishadomi, for starting this up and encouraging us!

Ya very welcome. I was hoping for someone to nag me horrifically during this time...Im glad I have buddies in crime (so to speak) .

Hmmm...I don't have a scale. My 2 yr old ds makes things disappear. I guess a weekly trip to Walmart is needed...or I can keep the scale at work and have my buddy (a guy) keep track of my progress. He's a great nag...

I have been running since D-day a week ago. I run until my lungs scream trying to get that runner's high! Perhaps I will wait til I am a bit more in shape before ordering the system. I am getting my new gym membership tomorrow.

hello all ... actually a thread I don't mind belonging to ... there have been so many recently I have joined b/c of the A ...

Anyway the infidelity diet worked amazing for me ... ironic I know ...

d-day was 8-3-09 and I weighed 209lbs at 5'3 ...

today I am down to 170lbs and still 5'3 ... lol some things never change ...

I eat awful ... the first week after d-day I ate nothing and barely drank ...

I got around to eating once a day about 3/4 of what I used to eat in one meal ... and I was eating 3 times a day then ... I ate alot and all the wrong stuff at wrong times ...

Now I eat once a day whatever I want just WAY smaller portions and I eat nothing after 6-7 pm ... it really helps ...

I used to the things your so posed to in amounts your not so posed to whenever I wanted to ... and usually just go right to bed after ...

Now I don't do that ... but I don't eat healthy ... besides my one meal a day I eat cigarettes like they are going out of style and drink coffee like it is the only thing on earth to drink ...

My choices today are slightly healthier, turkey sandwhiches, wheat bread by sara lee th one with only 45 calories per slice, yogurt, fruit cups, slim fast shakes, grape fruit juice, cranberry/pomagrante(sp), the diet life waters, the Fuze drinks, diet sparkling green teas ...

And I was walking about an hour a day ... need to start doing that again ...

I plan to start walking again when school starts in Feb ... till then I have decided to lay around on my ass and keep trying to heal ...

It still hurts to be in public around people ... happy couples with babies ect ... blah blah ...

sorry I was kinda all over the place on this post ... but I am here ... Feb. 16th I start walking again ...

I want to loose another 40lbs ... I think 130lbs is a respectable weight for my height which is still just 5'3 ...

I found this link to this site on the MSN homepage ... for calculating your BMI(body mass index) thought it might be helpful ...

ok, so how about if we declare our weigh-in/report day to be Tuesday? i.e. a week from today we all report how we've done.

Is there anyone interested in participating whose goal is something other than losing weight? If not, i.e. if it's just all about losing the lbs then perhaps it would be more motivating to have one person tabulate the results and post them to this thread all together? I'm all for 'counting' the physical activity too, but I just can't think of a way to do it that would be feasible for us to "count" in a uniform, comparable way.

And/or we could pick a date, something like Jun 1 (beginning of summer) and plan on making it the final "results" day?

If this is going to be helpful, we have to have something, I hesitate to call it competition but at least something resembling accountability, otherwise it will turn wishy washy very quickly, at least imho,
