Default 7 Day Motivational Thread Starting May 6--Going Down?

Good morning everyone. If I start maybe that will make me more accountable to keeping my goals.

1. Stay within carb limit
2. 4 servings of fruits and veggies
3. At least 6 glasses of water
4. Exercise 30 min 4X
5. Lose the 2lbs that I gained
6. Try not to get discouraged

Good Monday morning and thanks for starting us up, Jenn! I'm still trying to sort out last week and formulate specific recovery goals for this week. This will be another tricky week, however, what with Mother's Day and my birthday (fifty-something plus 1! ) coming this weekend. Part of this week's goals will be trying to make-up for last week; the other part will be a preemptive strike against the upcoming weekend.

It can be done.

Jenn - Your #6 "Try not to get discouraged" is important - and sometimes difficult to do. Even on your "fail" days, I bet that most of the time you're doing better than before you started your weight loss journey.

It's so easy to put on a pound and so hard to take it off.

1. 3 meals + 2-3 snacks (no extra snacking)
2. 2 min. exercise before meal prep, snacks.
3. An avg of an hour extra movement a day:
4. No sugar, white flour:
5. Small bites and put fork down between bites:
6: Weight same or down:

Good morning everyone! I bought the NutriBullet and I love it! A great way to get your fruit & veg in along with seeds. My plan is to substitute one meal a day for now with a NutriBlast I just need to figure out how to 'count' it...

I find I'm craving carbs less and although the sugar is still a struggle, I'm doing not too bad with that either - less than previously anyway!
Now I just need to get some exercise in - it seems so hard to find time and I was making time before so need to get tough on myself

Good luck to everyone with their goals this week.
Looks like the weather will be sunny & warm - about time!!

Yeah, I second that. "Going Down?" sounds far better than "Loggin's a Motha"

I'm in again this week. Forgot to weigh this morning. I went off track at a birthday party last night but am back on track with no carb cravings.

Didn't have time to read the thread--hope to do that later today.

Goals for the Week:
  • Log everything, no exceptions (nibbles and "tastes" count!):
  • At least 1500ml water per day:
  • Keep calories under 1600 per day:
  • Keep sodium under 1300 per day:
  • At least 10g fiber per day:
  • No red entries on this report:
  • Study every day:

Usually, I've been doing 7-day averages and that's been working for me. Given last week's numbers, however, 7-day averages would be horribly skewed. So, this week I'm going for true dailys in order to build a good foundation for reasonable 7-day averages. I'm also not going to push an immediate resumption of 2500ml water daily -- my goal is to ease back up to 2500 by week's end.

Carolynn, you're so right. Why is it that, for many of us, pounds are easy to get, but so hard to get rid of? It's just not fair!

Anyway, I'll echo what Jezzie said: Good luck to all of us this week!

LOL. That would be a perfect title!

Mern - glad to see you here again!

Jezzie - Let us know how the NutriBullet goes. For me, I think part of the satisfaction of eating is chewing. Glad your carb cravings are under control. For me, it's the opposite. I rarely crave sugar, but sometimes crave carbs.
