Hi, this is my first post on fitday. I agree with you! I do great on my eating plan all week and blow it on the weekends. That seems to be my biggest stumbing block.
I lost 30 lbs in 4 months and have kept it off for 6 months. Need to lose an additional 20 lbs and have a goal to lose 10-12lbs before July lst before we go on our summer vacation. I do cardio 5x week and strength training with a trainer 2x per week and am just now starting to see the scales move again. Lost 4lbs this week! Mostly due to recording every bite I eat in fitday journal and being super strict with my protein/carb/fat ratio's. I'm finally feeling encouraged that I can make my short term goal by July lst!

Wow, good for you! I wish I could be more disciplined about working out more but somehow it's just an ocasional run and some Callanetics at home here and there. Not enough!

I also find that recording every single thing is in itself a real help.
I just recently realized that it's kind of like money - if I overspend (overeat) then I have debt (fat) that I'll have to pay off (work off) by adjusting my budget (caloric intake) or increasing my income (exercising more). Since I am the kind of person who never spends more than I earn and have no problem living within my means (and my means are pretty meager!), thinking of it this was is helpful for me - I don't want debt (fat!)

All that was addressed to no one in particular, just sharing my latest revelation!

Have a great weekend, everyone, and don't forget to check in!

May 2nd - down another 2 lbs! Yay! So excited. So happy I started using fitday to record my food and activity. Just being accountable - even if jus to myself has made a HUGE difference this week!

Tonight is the first night ive been on and i cant beleive how fantastic it is. I already feel more positive and im looking forward to practicing what ive learnt 2moro. Im in England so its 12:20 her and im going to sleep shortly but will definately be back again tomorrow.
It feels really overwhelming that theyre is so much support as i thought i was the only person to feel like i do about being overweight. I even cried when i got my first reply from the lovely nessasonic because i was happy id found somewhere i could pour my feelings out.
Im going to really put my ultimate best in from now on in and blitz this roly poly me into the gutter and be the size 12 ive wanted for the last 8 years!!!!!!!!
Come on everyone lets pull together and help each other get to our goal weight.

Hey Tracey, good for you!
I am in central Europe, so our time zones are jsut an hour apart - maybe we will be on here at the same time sometimes . Although the beauty of message boards is that it doesn't matter what time zone you're in...

Congratulations on your determination, and let's all check in and support one another!

We can do it!!

urgh....checking in...i actually gained 3lbs in the last week up to 205.4 from 202.8 when i checked it this morning.
I'm hoping its because of my period (TMI) but i usually put on water weight at this time. Will know better next weigh in. Tried to work my garden before going out on saturday but i got attacked by bugs and only last an hour. Should have brought my bug spray. Got it packed and ready to go tonight. Road my bike (in the rain) 3.5 miles to the train station. Have to ride it home too, not bad, very warm this morning. I'm going to try for 4 days riding this week and maybe riding wednesday to my garden. This weekend i ate some bad things while hanging out overnight for my best friends birthday, but i kept it in moderation mostly. Ice cream cake and pizza, plus breakfast the next morning (french toast and bacon). But it was so hot out (90 degrees with 65% humidity) that i didn't feel like eating anything else after we got home on sunday, so we only ate about 3 meals all weekend. I think we just took cold showers and sucked on ice, no A/C at our place, ewww.

oy vey. i fell off the wagon - HARD - this weekend. two of my best friends from college came in from out of state for a long weekend (a girls' weekend) and we celebrated in style. Lots of eating out, a night of drinking wine - 7 bottles between 4 girls - that's not too bad, right? ;-) And did I mention lots of eating out?

does anyone have any tips for not over indulging when going out to eat? what do you do to stay on track, when you're out with friends?

hi everyone.
I would like some help losing weight as well.. this seems like an excellent way to hold yourself accountable for what you are eating. i try to hold back on carbs as well but sometimes it's just really difficult.. i love to eat rice so I don't have any other big carbs through the day.. my starting weight is 145 and would like to go down to 130 atleast. Let's all do this together.

Thankyou Margaret- ive been doing really well this week but had a small square of lasagne i didnt need about 2 hours after my tea(threw the rest in bin so didnt eat it).A blip which im going to try not hold against myself. Im just going to pop any leftovers in the freezer so im not tempted to go to fridge for more when i dont need it.
Will weigh in on wednesday though and if i get back on track hopefully i will still see a loss. Why doesnt willpower last as long as you want it too sometimes?
