    O.K., my true weight loss for the week is 4 lbs. I'm very very happy with that. Managed to get to the gym.

    Zoe, your son surely will remember that as well.
    1 lb this week - groann this is slow - but 6 lb altogether for the month, I guess that is ok.

    I got to speak to my son tonite, woo hoo! He is in my good graces now heh heh ... (a little too long between phone calls!)

    Good to hear ds is in good graces. 6 lbs is excellent for the month Zoe. Experts agree that 1-2 pounds a week is healthiest and stays off easier in the long run. Slow and steady.

    I'm going to yoga class this AM.

    Hi all- I would like to join in if I can. I'm trying to lose baby weight. My youngest is almost 2 now, and it's time. I started my diet change last week, and have lost 3 pounds (woohoo!) by decreasing my calories by 500, taking the stairs at work instead of the elevator, and walking during my lunch hr (I don't work at the bedside any more).

    I really need to get on an exercise program. How do those of you with children make time to go to the gym?

    Thank you Tweety you sweetie (what a poet eh?)

    I got the urge for something sweet tonite so I sliced an apple (w/skin on), put cinnamon and splenda on, and micro'd it for about 1 1/2 min - delicious Wanted something "badder" but it did the trick.

    I think about all the stuff, and the kinds of stuff, I used to eat, esp at nite, and I am baffled that I didn't weigh a lot more!

    Congrats on the yoga, still going to the brutal one? Is this the "hot" yoga you described last year?

    Splenda isn't the GREATEST thing for us, but I think when I am craving 10 servings of we-won't-say-what, it'll do, it'll do LOL

    Hey Everyone,
    Long Time No See.......
    I have been going through some tough times with my health and am now doing an 1800 cal diet, exercise, and meditation.
    Diagnosed with diabetes approx. three months ago and have really struggled with changes.
    It is good to be back and see how everone is doing.

    OK- I just bought a yoga DVD, so I can exercise at home before I go to bed. I lost another pound. Total=6 pounds. Yay!

    I'm taking a nutrition class with a dietitian right now at work, and it's very interesting. It's mostly focused on carb counting to help our diabetic patients with their diet plans, but I've gotten some really good tips. One really good piece of advice she gave was to divvy out portions of things like cereal as soon as you bring it home from the grocery, and using broccoli slaw mix in things for a veggie boost. Another good tip for a low fat dessert is to scoop 4 tbsp of fat free cool whip between 2 chocolate graham crackers and freeze for a low fat 'ice cream sandwich'- 60 cals/3 grams fat. I started monitoring my caloric intake and weight loss on http://www.my-calorie-counter.com/ It's been very helpful in keeping track of what I'm eating, and my progress.

    Good luck to everyone this week!

    Zoe, that apple trick does sound delish.

    Hi Muffie!!!

    Ertravel, nice to hear from you again. Sorry to hear about the DM. Gotta take care of that for sure. Good luck

    BBF, the gym I go to babysits while moms and dads work out, but don't know how they find the time. Thanks for the site, I think I might register and use it. I probably should monitor so I can cut back. Congrats on the weight loss so far. I hope you keep coming back to this thread.

    I'm doing o.k. There's a film festival in town so I'm going out a lot, and I thought for my peace of mind I'd be better off skipping my yoga class and getting some rest. But that's probably just laziness, but I've been go go go every night and need to stay home, walk the dogs and relax. I'm making tofu stir fry and instead of my usual two servings I'm going to break it up into three.

    Hello everyone,

    I am Jay. OK, so, I have lost weight twice while in nursing school. Every time a big test came up, I'd stop exercising and the weight would come back plus some. Well, I graduated went through orientation, critical care course, and ACLS. I am now ready to get the weight off and keep it off. I will "weigh in" every Friday, good or bad, starting this Friday! I am just watching my intake and kicking up the output. Nothing fancy or secret, just hard work and the will to live a healthy life.

    Starting Weight: 233 lbs.

    Friday here I come,
    Jay

    So it's been 2 weeks and I have drank nothing but water and sugar free hot chocolate. LOL I actually enjoy having no juice. I was a juice addict, drank soda only if it was in an alcoholic drink cause I actually hate pop. I'm doing the whole check the color of your pee, and I like that I'm winning this. I think I'm getting weird people, I see light colored pee and I smile. Whats wrong with me! I think I'm going kookoo .

    Oh yea for those who wanted to know about the LL Cool J workout heres a link to the book. It's really great with all pictures of exercises (strength training), I like the fact that each pic has one of him and a girl. http://www.amazon.com/LL-Cool-Platin...1966123&sr=8-1


    Oh yea tomorrow me and my boyfriend (oops my boyfriend and I just in case Mom's reading LOL) are going to a boxing club for a 90 minute boxing workout... I'll tell you how it is tomorrow. I might die from how hard I hear it is (they keep vomit buckets around the area!!!) but I'll post how it went.
