Cassie, good to see you back and so well rested. Ten hours! I'm jealous!!!

Ama, a fritatta is another good idea, if you haven't already eaten.

Darlene what kind of pedometer do you recommend? I think it oculd be useful to have one tho my walking is somewhat limited. Altho I think the amount of walking I have been doing in NOLA is one reason I am back down to 128.

I think you are right Hope, a lot of the day walking to sight see can burn a lot. Many times I have lost while on vacation! It's be interesting to keep track of your distance.

I'm going shopping for a pedometer tomorrow! Thanks Darlene! And I have to speed up or it's going to take forever to get to 10k.

Default Corrrect distances

Darlene

I much more carefully did my distances with mapmyrun and it was 1.2k yesterday and 1.6 today for a total of 2.8. I zoomed the map in to get a more accurate reading. So it took me 25 minutes to do the 1.6. I thought I was really slow haha.

Default Hi - im new

Hi y'all
I am new here and have been enjoying reading all your posts.

I have 77lbs to lose - aiming to lose in 10 months , at 2 pounds a week.

as much raw food tends to work well for me, though i'm not a completely raw
person at all.

when i have lost weight before, lots of green veg and raw veg balanced with carbs and protein etc - with EXERCISE! - it has been really good results.

i just need to keep choosing to EXERCISE! and not decide to not do it or slack off.

I really am grateful for this site.

I've just spent a few hours typing in menus for each day for a week, so that i can see at a glance what i need to buy and have in , to keep balanced.
Also, being prepeared, ie preparing food in advance, tends to work well too...well it has in the past.

nothing worse than coming home starving and just throwing myself into the land of snacks.

these are my ideals - i need strength and tenacity to keep saying 'yes' and doing the same thing, each day, even if i feel fed up or bored.

i really want to be rid of this weight.

i put it on when i went through a particulary difficult time between 2006-2010. I put on 6 stones in 4 years.

It was a terrible time.

I don't want to use food to cope anymore...but that might, realistically, take a lifetime to conquer.

one day at a time hey?


i really would like to connect and be accountable, particularly for my excerise
each day.

i'm lou by the way

Robin Great job on your lunch walk! Ooo so we go into Saturday tied here’s hoping for some sunshine for our walks!

Hope I don’t think the brand matters much but the $20-40 dollar ones seem to be the most accurate that I have found and it needs to be one you can set to measure your gait, as we all step at different lengths so that matters if you are counting steps and calories. Having said that my mom uses a 10$ one from walmart and its close enough for her and she’s not using the calories or heart rate feature’s she just wants to know how far she went approximately and how many steps she took as she’s doing the 10 000 a day step challenge.

Mike Robin and I expect some movement from you this weekend so get up and go or I will have to get Mern to dig out the whip for me.

Lou Welcome Robin, Mike and I have a walking challenge happening this week you are more than welcome to jump on board!

Have a great Saturday everyone!


Goals:
Walk 10k before Sunday night: M=Y, T=N, W=N, T=2.8k. F=N
Calories less than 1500: M= 1141, T=1321, W=1272, T=1662, F=1061
Calorie deficit of 5000 for week: M= -946, T= -739, W= -888, T= -477, F= -1027
No sugar: M=Y, T=Y, W=Y, T=Y, F=Y

Default Friday Nite Blowout

  • Workout > 30 mins x 4: N, Y, (15-20 mins), N, (20 mins)
  • Cholesterol < 250mg: 111, 230, 93, 201, 193
  • Protein > 50 g: 43, 108, 44, 91, 86
  • Sugar < (??? g): ~, Exemplary, ~, Y, ~
  • Vegetables > 3 /day: N, N, N, Y, Y
  • Calories < 1750: 1291, 1287, 1127, 1544, 2367
Didn't post to forums yesterday, but thought I better today, after my calorific blow-out yesterday. Not enough exercise this week. Pretty good on the cholesterol front, (my main goal, recently). But beef brisket is really high in calories and between that, swiss cheese, chocolate and Pinot, well, the results are obvious.

The New York Times magazine has the most fascinating article called the "extraordinary science of addictive junk food."


If you want to find some motivation to eat clean check this out. The food companies ARE worse than the tobacco companies at getting people addicted for profit. It's a long article but well worth the read. What you read might save your life.
