I am 30 years old and have two young boys. My husband was recently transferred for work and we know literally two other people in town. I started FitDay exactly one week ago and it is working much better than anything else I have tried. I am 6'1 (yes I know, super tall) and started at 237 lbs. So far I have lost 6 and am so excited to finally do something about this weight gain since my first pregnancy. I would be comfortable with 185 lbs even though that still mysteriously puts me in the "overweight" BMI section. I was in the 140's in highschool but was a super skinny beanpole!

Anyway, thanks for this thread - it's great to have just one more thing to hold me accountable. I must must must get out there and be active everyday and not binge on sweets like I normally do. One thing I am finding incredibly hard is to get more protein in my diet (preferrably not with powders and bars since I don't want to be buying them forever - I want a lifestyle I can maintain).

Highest weight: 242 (holy - wake up call!)
Starting weight: 237 (Oct 5th 2010)
current weight: 231 ( Oct 13th 2010)
1st mini goal 227 (Oct. 31 2010) Christmas goal: 210 (getting there!) Main Goal 185 (no set date - I should find something to attach it to!)

Hello and welcome

I think that you will find these forums very helpful. I only started about 6 weeks ago and am already down 10 pounds. It is nice to be accountable to someone/something other than yourself it makes me really think about the choices I make.

I am 29 and have two small children as well and I noticed a big difference when I cut out the "kid food" out of our diets (i.e. grilled cheese, chicken fingers etc). It took about a week for the kids to adjust to the new foods we were having and ocassionally I give in and make them something but for the most part we are eating fairly healthy. I am also super tall 5'11" ( though not as tall as you, you need to tell me where you buy your jeans...lol) and find it can be discouraging a little bit because it takes a lot longer to notice body changes because there is so much space for it to be spread out over.

Good luck with the weight loss and look forward to hearing how you are doing!

Andrea

P.S. I just noticed you only live a couple of hours away from me!! Wohoo for Canada!

Hi i am interested in joining this group. I am not sure how to sign up. Last week was my first week and I lost 1.4 pounds.. I know it was challenging for me as I did not get as much activity as I wanted but I was glad to see the weight go down. I am really looking forward to get motivation because of you guys .. I am hoping to be down 2 pant sizes by the end of this year!!

Default Welcome to our thread

FHN Girl

Nothing to do to join, just log on and post replies! Welcome!

We are all in the same boat here. All trying to lose some pounds before Christmas, some need to keep losing more, all want to keep it off.

We are excited about losing weight, and sometimes frustrated and we could ALL use some support. So welcome aboard!

Yep, fhngirl, all you need to do is hit the "quote" button at the bottom of the last list, edit to add your info and then you're in, no dues, no initiation, just a little typing.

I'm weigh in tomorrow, so I'm trying really hard to be extra extra good today. I was down this morning a tiny bit from last week, and hoping to make it just a little more by tomorrow morning. I'm wiggling my fingers at the screen sending all of you skinny mojo, wacka wacka thin mini... Maybe I should wiggle them at myself too?

Well i put on 2.5lbs but if anyone read my thread you will read that i dont understand why. I have got a bad bladder infection and have antibiotics now to clear it up. Also as i lost 4lbs after monthly aunt flo visit, it hopefully is just water weight going back on. Im not getting down im just going to mend it! Heres to next weeks weigh in, my chins up and im not giving up!

Down just over a pound. It's coming off so slowly that unless I have a leg amputated there is no way I'm going to be down a full 30 by Christmas, but I will take whatever I can get. We don't have anything planned for this weekend, so hopefully I can stay on track this weekend and maybe post a bigger loss next week.
