Let's lose some weight!!!!!!!!!

Who wants to lose some weight? I sure do!

I've heard it said that when you make your goals public, you stand a better chance of succeeding. If this is true, then by proclaiming a weight loss goal before the entire Interference community I may just be able to stick with the program.

Therefore, I pledge to lose at least 2 pounds every week for the next month. Can I do it? We shall see.

I suggest everyone joins in the fun and shares their tips and their progressive methods for healthy living.

I just weighed myself...

238 lbs.

Now, I've been exercising consistly for the past two months and have actually lost 7 lbs. The problem appears to be too much food and too much alcohol, because I was aiming for 220 by this time.

I'll cut out the fried foods, and start eating smaller meals at home instead of eating out all the time.

I've kept off 15 lbs since July by cutting back my carb intake

Good luck!

Do you have a dog? They're great for keeping you in shape. All that walking they need ... and someone to go along with them ...

Good luck Dano.

Cutting back on the fried food, takeaways and alcohol will definately help.

I cant diet at the moment due to "my condition" but I will join you later in the year when the babys out but my tummies still there.

I have a feeling this doesn't belong in the EYKIW forum and will be moved...but I'm sure I'll find it again.
Sounds like a damn good idea to me Dano. It is possible to have a dog and be overweight. You just have to constantly watch what you eat and expend the right amount of energy. My weight has fluctuated for years and I know for sure I feel heaps better when I'm not overweight and am fitter. Observation Honesty and Effort...sounds easy, but it's not always. I hear ya Dano Good luck

Buy yourself a juicer or a smoothie maker using fruit ect, I was drinking these for about two weeks when I first got mine and someone at work thought I had lost a bit of wait and I wasn't even trying to! Do need a bit of toning up though!

They are filling and can replace, say, your usual lunch, and have a proper meal in the evening or whatever way round you want to.

Forget those fad diets, just excersise and eating healthy is the way to go! <----- sit ups! lol

I hate fad diets. Eating less calories, regardless of the type of food, and walking work best for me. But right now I've got nowhere to walk, my neighborhood has gotten so bad I'm afraid. The mall is boring.

I am on a diet and workout plan with a co-worker of mine. We started the South Beach Diet about 1 week ago. It is great. I have lost 3 lbs already. And since I disclocated my knee several weeks back, I am forced back into the gym for physical therapy. 20 mins a day on the bike and I just started to use the eliptical machine! It is good stuff. By the end of Summer my legs are going to be smokin!

Yesterday I bought two really cute, but tight tank tops on sale at Gap. They're my incentive to get back into doing ab workouts everyday and get my flat tummy and six pack back!!!

I weighed myself today, coincidentally. It looked as if I'd lost some weight since the last time (which was a couple of months ago ). People also said to me it looked like I'd lost some weight, now there's proof!
Anyway, it wasn't that much (about 2 or 3 kilos), but at least I'm now under 95 kilos, which is good.

C ya!

yes, yes, yes......count me in here. I have been trying to loose weight of late, I am 5'9 and weigh 75kgs and I absolutely hate the weight that I have on, in the space of one year I have put on around 7kgs and it is just not budging.....I have looked at my diet and limited the carbs and drastically reduced my alcohol and now I am trying to go for at least a 20min walk everyday, but still nothing much is happening...In the past I have lost weight by doing abolutely nothing, I guess this is one of the joys of gettng older, weight just gets harder to loose....

But anyway my goal is to be down to 65kgs by December of this year, so that is about 10kgs to loose...... I will keep you all posted, and to anyone in the know, fitness wise, is this a realistic and attainable goal?????

when i make my goals public, even if i so much as say 'ok, i'm going to listen to this song now', i NEVER end up doing what i said i was going to do.

losing wieght...yeah i should do that. i keep trying to go out running, and not.... i've been eating more vegetables and less dessert lately.
