    no need to ask it is here for anyone with weight issues. At least this thread is. We are all here to support each other. Welcome everyone.

    I 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.

    hey all,

    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.

    Good 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.

    OK...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!

    Dang, 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

    good 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...
