Skylersmom, I agree. Accountability is the main thing I've lacked in other similar efforts. I know it should be enough to be accountable to myself, but I have an easy time prioritizing everyone but me when it comes to increasing my fitness level.

I like the Tuesday "reporting" days. Maybe we can include something like 1) weight change 2) days of cardio 3) days of resistance training (for those interested in increasing lean muscle mass) and 4) change in bodyfat percentage (for those who are tracking it).

I don't think each area would apply to everyone (certainly not to me!) but it may cover a lot of the habits we're looking to change while we attempt to become more fit.

What do you think?

skylersmom & nam, I would like to participate in this thread and accountability club.

I go to Y. I love doing the turbo kick, body combat (cardio), body pump (weight lifting), fab abs (toning) and yoga (core strength and balancing). I want to work on toning my abs, thighs, and arms. Kicking and punching at Turbo and body combat are helping.


If you don't find peace with yourself, you cannot find anywhere else.
Appreciate and cherish what I have.

Oh, and did I mention I've had 4 co-workers suggest Medi-fast?

I am three weeks into Medifast - down 17.2 pounds. I do work out (lift weights as well some form of cycling or ellipticals) almost every day.

Perseverance and will power are key.

Got room for one more here? I'm down 40 lbs. from my peak weight of 288 mostly through managing calorie intake. I started with a blend of Special K and Slim Fast diets and gradually progressed to wider options.

200 calorie breakfast
100 calorie mid morning snack
200 calorie lunch
100 calorie mid afternoon snack
Normal dinner

I've been inconsistent on the exercise front. Set up a stationary bike in my office that I use. Was pretty good about 15 minutes 3x per week until the holidays and then slacked off. So far this week I've been able to get back on at 15 minutes per day, hoping to get to that rate 3 to 4 times per week steadily. Once I get to that baseline, I can build to longer times and more exercise variety.

For me, it's all about habit. Once something is repeated enough to become habit I can stick with it. It just takes me too long in the early stage to shift from change to habit.

Okay I am here now. Ready for action.

I am a little confused, are we PM'ing a designated person with our results or are we all posting replies with them?

t2g, way to go!! Another Medifast buddy

I'm looking forward to equally wonderful results. I still can't get over how full I am eating their food. I did learn that it's best to let the soups & such hydrate well before eating them - at least an hour or they're crunchy. haha

I will confess that I've had to resort to setting timers to remind me to eat. Obviously I've been eating a lot or I wouldn't have 50lbs to lose, but I'd forget to eat regularly then eat all the wrong things which just led to all sorts of bad activity from my neurotransmitters. LOL My "food issues" became "food addictions" I think. At any rate, this is just a no-brainer and I eat when the alarm goes off (6 times a day) and I don't get hungry in between.

I'm still amazed.

I want in too! I was chunky from baby weight on D-day and it has gone up since then.

I am considering my own modified version of Atkins and I have P90X and cant do it so my mom suggested starting with Walk Away The Pounds and working up to P90

I have a medi-fast question. Do they have a plan that lets you eat dinner with your family and do the rest pre planned meals? I used to do Jenny Craig and could eat "dinner" with the family they don't have that option anymore.

Yes. The meal is called Lean and Green. As long as you serve and eat the items and quantities listed, you are good to go. Last night I took my DD out for Chinese food and I had Chinese Green soup (and veggies) and BBQ pork.

Omigod!!! Thank you. I loved it when I could do that on Jenny. I'm off to investigate further.

Okay another quick ? is there an advantage to the bigger packages or does the variety pack do everything you need it to?

1) weight change 2) days of cardio 3) days of resistance training (for those interested in increasing lean muscle mass) and 4) change in bodyfat percentage (for those who are tracking it).

I like this approach. Let's all agree to do this on Tuesdays and once we see overall response we can determine if some type of tracking is needed by User ID.

This sounds like fun. I worked out today for 1 hour 20 minutes cardio and 40 minutes core training on the ball with weights. I need to lose 5 pounds before Mexico on 1/30/2010.

Net, I customized an order for the woman's plan and with the expedited shipping & such, I paid roughly $320 for a month's worth of food. I'm actually saving money not spending on breakfast, lunch & snacks at the office. Then I still eat dinner with the kids & hubby in the evenings.

Without a doubt, it is SEVERE calorie restriction, and I'm not ashamed to admit I might have an extra shake per day, especially if I'm planning to exercise hard. What impressed me the most, though, is the transition plan. They readily admit that when you move from a plan like this back to "normal, healthy eating" you need to add in calories slowly to give your body time to adjust. Otherwise, your metabolism will be slower and you'll pile on the pounds quickly. The plan for transitioning is in the book and is very clear from the beginning. I think it's an 8 week plan, but I've loaned my book to another co-worker.

t2g, how's the heavy-duty exercising going with the Medi-fast? Do you have enough energy? My H wants to get back into shape for the Hotter-N-Hell-Hundred in August and I may suggest this as a kickstart for him, if it allows him to train like he'll need to. What do you think?

I'm ordering right now. Nothing better than having it all right on hand at work so I don't have to think about it.

Net, I've bought a couple of Pyrex (I think that's the brand) cups with lids that I alternate bringing to the office. The lid has a pop up thing in the middle that allows you to microwave whatever is in there. Anyway, the things are lifesavers! Pop the soup in about an hour before lunch, add the boiling water from the office kitchen and cover. At lunchtime I nuke it and voila! Hot soup for lunch and it's pretty tasty! I was blown away when I bit into a real portobello mushroom in the Chicken & Wild Rice soup.

I do think you'll like it. Let me know how it goes for you. My co-worker had "the last 10 lbs" to lose. She's lost 15 in 4 weeks and looks great! I cannot wait for that to be me.

I ordered the basic 4 week pre selected menu for the first time out...I am so excited....I cannot wait.

Can I ask why you make it an hour ahead and then nuke it?

Absolutely! Because in my very limited experience, if I eat it within less than an hour of making it, it tastes nasty. The flavor is still good, but the noodles, chicken, etc are hard. Since the food is dehydrated, it needs some time to fluff up, more or less. My gf makes hers a couple hours prior to lunch then reheats. It also really gives the broth time to thicken and become tastier.

Make sense? I do eat the oatmeal almost immediately after eating it - okay, maybe I soak it for about 15 minutes first. Others prefer to make the oatmeal into muffins or cookies (recipes on box), but I'm comfy with just oatmeal.

I'm so excited for you!

I'm interested to watch how you guys go with Medi-fast.

Myself, I've put off the detox (lemon detox) for a couple of weeks (iron levels a little low at the moment) and am concentrating on eating right.

I've cut right back on dairy (I love love love cheese), no alcohol or soft drink (soda), no junk food, lots of salad (it's summer over here ), lots of water.

My workouts will involve using Wii fit and Wii active plus some walking when I can.

I'm sure we will all have our very own tailor made diets and exercise plans so it will be interesting to see how we all go.

Can I quickly ask if we can all state our age as we kick this off? I have a feeling many of us are of a similar age.

I'll start ....... I'm 46, turning 47 in Feb.

tts

eta: sorry I didn't answer sooner about the detox, I missed the question. darned time difference causes me a few hassels sometimes.

I found the lemon detox helped me settle my allergies as well as feel fabulous.
