P.S. I think I stole your meh.
Thanks, Donna I'm just so desperate to see below 160 on the scale again, and I've really been fighting cravings for fatty comfort food the last few days. These are the times when we get to see what we're made of, I guess.

Mel-Mc: Sorry to hear about your bad experience with a dietitian. That type of behavior and attitude can turn someone away from healthy eating.

Mern: Good luck this week with your goals! It sounds like your busy but if your like me, busy keeps my goals on target.

Week goals:

1. Try out new treadmill: I borrowed from a friend every night (I can't get it all together yet, and my husband hasn't had time to fix it) no
2. Log all food and drinks: Yes
3. Stay under 1,200 calories a day: Yes
4. Do sit-ups everyday: No
5. Lose 2 pounds: Hopefully!

Smile New to this thread

Hi There!

I'm new to this thread. I'm back on my journey to lose 100 lbs. Keeping that big number in the back of my mind is a given, it's always there. However, this time I'm breaking it down into smaller goals. I think that may help to make it less daunting.

My plan is simple and straight forward. Increase my physical activity slowly, watch what I eat closely in an effort to lower my blood sugar.

My goals:
Walk every day for 100 days.
Lose between 30 and 50 lbs by October 12.
Get off my diabetes meds
Walk a 10k by Thanksgiving

Here's a little about me:

53 year old grandmother of 3
245 lbs, 5'5"
type II diabetic
cholesterol is fine
blood pressure is fine
I drive a cement truck for a living.

1. log food every day M=Y T=Y
2. keep calories between 1400-1600 M= 1575, T=1290
3. exercise on my lunch hour at least three times 2 done

Calories are a bit below my target today but I haven't decided if I'll find a snack to bring it up.

My pretty vague goals:

1. At least one work out while away (W&Th)
2. Weekly deficit over 3000
3. Make healthy food choices while away.
4. At least 5 bags of stuff to leave the house this week, charity, garbage, whatever. M-Y

Walking challenge: M-2m, T-1m.

Joanna, why are you having cravings? That's what I would be asking myself. If I eat any sugar, I have cravings (I don't know about artificial sweetener because I hardly ever use it but I have heard that). Anyway, I just think that there's a reason you are having cravings.

Weenapo welcome, glad you took me up on the invite

I am walking 2 miles a day with 2 lb hand weights 5 days a week. The other 2 days I'm walking 3 miles with 2 lb hand weights. After 2 weeks, I'll increase my 3 mile days to 3 days a week. I'll increase every 2 weeks. Once this has little affect on my heart rate, I'll start adding weight with my weighted vest.

Oh Robin, I think I'm craving fat food because I like butter and salt. I don't know that there's more to it than that. Also, comfort food makes me feel comfortable.
