Weight loss

  1. Hi everyone this is kind of nursing related. I have recently started a weight loss program. I was wondering if anyone would like to join me . Maybe some of you are already doing it and need a buddy. I thought I or someone else could post on the just converstation bb, say once a week? I am doing a high protein diet, so far I have lost 7 pounds. It has been 9 days since I started. I do aerobics for one hour every day. I have only missed one day so far. My weight is my business for now. I just thought I'd ask. Like I said I want this to go to the off topic bb as it really isn't nursing related. I will try and check on the weekend and I think a good day to post the post will be on Sun or Mon.
    Any Takers?

    Alyssa,

    Haven't tried the Strawberry -- afraid of the "fiber" taste. Glad to know it's yummy, I'll have to give it a try. I usually stick to the Milk Chocolate or Chocolate Royale.

    I am in. I have been doing slim fast. Chocolate and the Banana are the best. I am trying to go to the gym everyday but usually only get there once or twice aweek. Muscle is the best way to lose fat so I need to get working on the gym thing. School usually consumes most of my time. BUT now I am ready to study for the NCLEX so I will have plenty of time. Hopefully the gym will help calm me down a bit. It is great for any stressful events. I am also taking the metabolife. This stuff takes about a week to kick in but it decreases my apetite and gives me more energy.

    Great going girls on the weight loss. I've lost 45.5 lbs. since last year. I lost the first 25 just trying to eat healthier and walk. In May I joined Weight Watchers and I've lost 20.5 more....only 20 more to go!!!

    I've really made a firm commitment to exercise...especially being in school...and good 45 min. brisk walk is a huge stress reliever!!!
    Have a good day,
    Christine
