    Default My challenge for 2009

    I hope this is the right place to post this. Besides saving more money this year, my big challenge is to lose weight.
    I have said this every year...lol. But this is it. I have had it with being overweight, tired, and frumpy looking. I hate being out of energy and not being to play with my children. I want to look good, feel good and have more energy. I also would love to get off of my insulin.
    This came at the perfect time too. My community is doing a biggest loser type of contest. The top female and top male winner's get a gift package valued at $350.00!!! Woo Hoo!

    So, yesterday I went and got *gasp* healthy food. I woke this morning and drank 2 glasses of water before breakfast and had some oatmeal for breakfast. I can do this I think.
    Then I put the exercise DVD in....OMG!?! I did the warm up, but then I could only do 2 mins of the actual workout. How freakin sad is that?
    I am going to put my weight out there for everyone....I'm hoping that will help give me the motovation I need to keep going. So here goes: 1/12/09 starting weight: 241 pounds...eck...I am only 5'2 so that is not a good look. Hey wait, maybe I am not overweight, just undertall....

    Well anyways thanks for letting me ramble.

    Undertall, I love it and plan to use it.

    About the 2 minutes into the video thing, I wouldn't worry about it. You put the video in and you started by warming up. That is more than you did yesterday, right? When we are out of shape (I'm sooo out of shape, that's how I know) our bodies love to protest our little activities, so hey, awesome job getting motivated! I know you can do it!!!

    Hope you will keep us posted, and PM me if you need some moral support, or a swift kick in the pants to keep you going! :)

    I am with you. I have put on weight slowly but surely the past 4 years. I am 48, almost 200 pds at 5.61/2 That is unbelievable for me. I'm getting tight in the 16's... ugh. Okay, so my point is, I have a goal this year also...to lose 50 pds. If you want to encourage each other on, that would be great. I can update you and you can update me on your progress... I have an eliptical machine that I absolutely HATE, but know that I need to use.
    Have you ever tried Alli? I bought some and never used it because I was afraid that I would get some of the side effects. How crazy is that!
    I am going to start again today.

    Thanks for your post... I needed to be reminded and hope to have someone that will want to challenge each other.

    I hear your pain. I also have resolved to this very same thing. I have done the lose 20 pounds, gain it right back when I stopped dieting. Although I never said that I was going to stop. This time I am determined as well. Maybe we can go down the journey together. I am 5'6 so I have a little height on you. We weigh the same. I started on Jan 5. Couldn't start before a Monday, could i? So far I have dropped 4 pounds. Just another 96 to go right? Actually this time I have changed by way of thinking. Instead of focusing on that big number, I am focusing on each day. What am I eating today, what excercise have I done today, etc. So far so good!
