this is a great coping skill. i have been doing this more often.
wow. i think i might have actually started to do this…finally.
well my weight went up kind of a lot. it went up to about 191-197 so now i’m trying to get it back down again. : / my first goal is to get down to 170/160 like i was a few years ago and see if i like that.
I feel like I hit a plateau. I’m trying an amateur calorie cycling diet. Anyone have any luck with this? Tips?
I’m starting the cabbage soup diet. Anyone have any luck on this? I wonder if I can get down to 170 by Thanksgiving. (~20lbs)
i’m trying to stay away from carbs. but not hard enough! i got out yesterday and i’m going to get some exercise today too. i need some motivation girls! i think i might have lost a few more pounds. but i need pressure! haha
i am now 198lbs. i was at 203 before that and even higher previous to that….i’m going to get down to 170lbs or maybe 150lbs….
If I can start doing at least 45 minutes every day I should be able to lose weight. Jogging, fast walking, aerobics, or my bike (once it’s fixed) would be good. Lately I’ve been doing about 10-20 minutes of aerobics a few days a week, so I want to slowly up that to 45 minutes.
Just wanted to say “hi” to everyone and welcome the news members!
: ) I am trying to take time to enjoy myself. I want to try to get on here at least once a week to see how you guys are doing. I really love this group. Good luck to everyone this week end and the upcoming week! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
I’ve made a few acquaintances at school/work/organizations. They seem pretty cool. I’ve tried to make them friends, but I’m not sure how this is going to work out. I’ll keep my eyes open for cool people.
Someone important to me once told me a little story. There was a man drowning in the ocean, and a boat came by to save him. The man told the captain, “No, thanks! God will save me!” Then, another boat came by and the people on the boat said, “Come on up!” and the man said, “No, thanks! I’m waiting for God to save me!” The man drowned, and went up to heaven. He asked God, “Why did you not save me?” Then, God said, “I sent two boats!”
I don’t know if this pertains to anyone, but I thought I’d share, just in case. The moral is that God (if you believe in that) is trying to help people, if they will only help themselves. I know many times in my life I was waiting for help, waiting for a fix, waiting for someone to make it right, telling God he wasn’t helping, but we have to be brave enough to use the tools we have been given to help ourselves. Hope you could use this some time. Have a great day. : )
