Aug 24, '02Occupation: full-time student Joined: Apr '02; Posts: 19I am very motivated after reading everyone's replies. I am 5'7" and weigh 143. I would like to get to 135. It doesn't seem like much, but it is really hard to lose eight pounds. I guess I will dust off my treadmill and get started. I just plan to walk and work on abs and do push ups. I need to get back to my healthy eating again. Subway is a great way to cut down during lunch. Not to heavy on your stomach either. I started back to school on the 21st so I have to get back in the groove of things.

I'd like to join in too if that's alright. I start nursing school on Sept 3, and hope to graduate in 2004 with my ASN. I currently weigh 145# and would like to lose 10#. I'm 5'4 so I could stand to lose some wieght. I'm anxious about keeping up with my exercise regimen and my studies. Right now I exercise 6 days a week and plan on cutting back to 5 while in Nursing school. I'm hoping that I can keep it up. I watch what I eat but this weekend I blew it. So I'll just mind my p's and q's this week. Wish me luck. We can do this.
Aug 26, '02Occupation: RN Joined: Jan '02; Posts: 1,732; Likes: 1Welcome welcome! Just my update. I am maintainning around 321. Wish it would come off a bit faster but it took me forever to get it on. I went for a mile and a half walk yesterday. I felt pretty good afterwards. Today it will be areobics I think. Well have a great week everyone!
Aug 26, '02Occupation: Full time MOM and Student Joined: Feb '02; Posts: 141Good Morning You All!!!!!!I stepped on the scale this morning and I lost 1 1/2 lbs!!!!!!I know I said I was going to start my routine last week, but the thruth is I didn't. I was really busy trying to get things ready before school started, and didn't make the effort to go to the Gym. But this week is going to be different. I start school tomorrow, and I wrote an schedule, and wrote down GYM, on 3 days of the week. Onother thing I started doing is drinking more water. I'm now drinking 18 oz a day. I know it's not much, but to me it is, since I NEVER drink any water., and I guess it has helped since I've been able to loose wait w/out working out.
Well ladies, got to go. Have a great week and I'll check in w/ you again next Monday. Let's keep up the good work.
Aug 26, '02Joined: Nov '01; Posts: 510; Likes: 8OK...this is going to be harder than I thought! I was exercizing before every Monday Wednesday and Friday...but now with classes this is getting a to be a little more difficult! I'm only taking 2 classes but they meat from 7-10pm on Monday, 5-8 on Tuesday and 9-3 on Saturdays. Now, I know it only takes 20-30 minutes to work out but it seems like a lot while also trying to fit in studying and maintaing my home along with working full time! Ugh! OK...So, I'll work out on Wednesdays, Fridays, & Sundays.
Good luck to us all as classes get going!

Well, since it's almost September, DH pulled down the scale for me and guess what....I've lost 14 lbs.!!! Yeah!!! I'm not expecting as much of a loss for October but this was a pleasant surprize! I'm now 184 woo hoo! I still need to work on my exercizing though...I find it difficult to fit it in...well...no excuses! I'm going to work out today & tomorrow!
Have a great day everyone!
Aug 31, '02Occupation: Homemaker and student. Joined: Jan '02; Posts: 657; Likes: 42Dang, it's frustrating! I cut out almost all meat products from my diet (except fish) and am really eating more healthy food. But I must just be eating too much, because I am just NOT LOSING A POUND! I am still not below 220! I am really praying to be healthy and strong before I enter the program next fall. I think I'm eating way too many carbs. HELP!
OK, exercise...........well gosh, I've got great intentions........and when I am, I love it..........but..............:imbar Well ok I need help in that department! Just making time for it seems nearly impossible! Making meals, cleaning house, going to school, taking kids to/from school, helping out at their school, sleeping! I know I can do it, but I excuse myself to death.
Anywho, I am happy to hear so many of you are losing, keep it up! God bless :kiss , Heather

Aug 31, '02Occupation: Student Joined: Aug '02; Posts: 145good work bean 76 you are an inspiration...
can't wait to hear more good news!
keep plugging away heather - i don't know if this will help, but since i am a carb junkie myself, i have been eating those low/no carb bars for snacks so at least then my snacks aren't full of carbs...they don't really taste all that great but if you need a snack it might be an option...i'm just a beginner myself so don't take it as gospel...
