    Good Morning Everyone!

    Well...I'm still not sure how much weight I've lost...DH is still holding out on me with the scale! But anyway...I've been working out 3x/week with my Bowflex and I haven't faltered yet with my eating plan! I think i am starting to see a little bit of definition in my arms! Woo Woo! And I can now slide my pants off over my hips without unbuttoning or unzipping them! Granted...this is the second wearing of them...but I honestly don't think I could have done this before! I'm so excited and I'm finally beginning to feel I have my control back! It is still very challenging for me...especially when DH cheats on his eating plan...oh well! Anyway, I've been eating a lot of salad lately and I'm so sick of it! Needless to say I haven't been consuming all the veggies I need...so my goal is to up my veggie intake in other forms. So far so good...Jewel had asparagus on sale for $2.99/lb so I stocked up yesterday!

    Well...good luck ladies! Let's all continue going strong!!!

    It feels so depressing to cheat...although at the time it tastes good :chuckle

    Come on, ladies!!! quit beating yourselves up!! you are bright articulate people. Please, try not to should on yourselves so much. It's great to want to change, but don't feel so defeated when you have something other the carrotsticks. I just want to cry when i read some of these posts.

    I'll just coordinate it around my points today and tomorrow....no biggie....
    C'mon! Quit whining and DO something! The hardest step is one NOT taken!

    We can do this!
    I challenge all of you to a 30 minute walk this evening. (No...work doesn't count.) Who's up to it?

    Hang in there!

    True, we shouldn't be too hard...but if I don't scold myself a little-no one else will...& I'm the one who has to button the jeans :chuckle

    Hi everybody!!!
    I am so excited to have found this site!!!

    I hope there are some experienced nurses on here because I have some very specific problems - meds that I take cause weight gain...& Hyperthermia - YUCK! If anyone could give any help in that regard I'd be forever in your debt!!!!

    I can't wait to be on here to support and be supported:kiss

    Anyhow - I don't know my exact weight right now BUT I do know that I gained 10lbs in July alone and over the last 5 years I have doubled myself (but I was toooo thin). So, I'm approximately 215, 5'5" and my initial goal is 150 - hopefully more like 130.

    Fortunately - we have a great Gym on campus - All FREE w/ cardio, classes, weights...and a fellow student is going to be my "buddy" at the gym.

    I am sooooo GLAD I FOUND YOU GUYS

    I was wondering if I could join in this club??
    I didn't have major issues with my weight till I started nursing school... sound familair?
    And then I lost a LOT of weight, i wasn't eating hardly anything, adn running all over the place doing doubles on the ward and then from uni I was going straight to work.

    But I saw sense, and since than I have not only put on the weight I lost but gained more , which I am now trying to shift. I am 5'7'' I think and about 182 pounds (if I converted i right) I would love to loose a couple of stones and go back down to ten stones(140 pounds) or less

    I had a very bad day yesterday(I stress eat), and took my frustration out on the tub of nutella... not quite figured out how to tell my diet buddy... :imbar

    But this is a great thread

    Hi everybody!

    well, i just read Whisper's reply and thought "how polite - she asked to join" at the same time i realized that i didn't! so, sorry if i should have - i'm not too familiar w/ this whole webboard thing...

    but! since i already invited myself to join - i'll tell y'all that i weighed in at about 212 today (YUCK) and worked out for about 2.5 hours at the VERY FANCY gym on campus. though i did feel a bit like a fish out of water as everybody there looked about 18 and perfect...

    welcome Whisper - i'll be happy to talk with you!
