2017 and our New Fitness Goals Let's Recommit!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

On Thursday and Friday Rob and I did a LOT of walking around DC, mostly in the Mall area. By Saturday I was sore from hip to toe, but it felt good...I mean, I managed it and was pretty proud of myself. :)

I've been "walking" while watching The Price is Right...I march in place or walk back and forth from kitchen to livingroom doing things. It's not much, but with the weather screwy right now, it's better than nothing.

But WHY is the rum always gone?

Walking is always good hon! Keep it up and it will make a difference!

I am continuing to lose weight and am thrilled that it is happening and I don't feel deprived of anything!

Not doing much on the exercise front, but at least I've cut back on the junk food.

Can't hurt, right?

Nope, won't hurt at all.

I did a Leslie Sansone video this morning. Pharaoh got irate for some reason and decided to squall and then try to bite me. If these videos are to be realistic...they need to include the cats and dogs that think they have to be involved.

Sounds like you are both still moving in the right direction!

I have lost almost 30 pounds now since last summer and I still have not had anyone notice! :shock: I would have thought by now someone at work would have noticed. Oh well I wont give up!! So I lost 7 pounds from July to November, 7 in December and 7 in January. Now I have lost another 7 in February! I have taken my belt in three notches and that makes me feel good.

Oh and I got notified today at the Skin Care Clinic that I do NOT have eczema! I have Psoriasis and they can treat that easier. So I am starting a new medicine ointment and Light therapy! I sure hope this works. I have been broke out for almost a year and a half and would dearly love some relief!!! The Asthma is having its ups and downs when the barometer changes. But holding my own on that front too.

Good for you Vana. I wish I could lose thirty pounds.

I seem to be going in reverse. As I said before, I'm trying to cut back on the junk food, and I did start exercising again. No killer workouts, I have to ease back into it after stopping for so long, but a little is better than nothing.

Or that's what I thought.

I weighed myself a few days ago before I started exercising again, and I weighed myself just this morning.

I. Gained. Three. Pounds. :? :Q :angry:

Makes me wonder why I even bother. Might as well just flop down in the recliner and stuff my fat face.

Your body will do this to you, LK. Part of it is surprise that you're moving more, so it's trying to survive. Part could be water weight (it's a thing!) and part is muscle. Pay no attention to that. Pay attention to how you feel.

Our scale needs a new battery. So...what scale? ;)

Vana...I bet they noticed but they're not sure if they should mention it because weight can be such a touchy subject. Probably after a while someone will say you've been looking really good. :)

I walked a whole mile last Saturday...then got sick, then started feeling better...and now I'm coming down with something again. I need to build up my stamina as my mom and I are going on a trip in April. More information will be forthcoming. ;)

Well I feel like crap. I'm tired all the time.

I didn't exercise today, I had too many errands to do after work.

Maybe if I stop eating altogether I'll lose a pound?

Don't stop eating. Makes it even worse as your body becomes more and more convinced that it's dying, and it's pretty much right. Starvation makes it even harder to lose weight. Just make sure you're eating lots of the right stuff (veggies and lean protein) rather than junk food and you'll eventually turn around.

Not too sure about that, but I'm too tired to argue.

LK: have you talked to a doctor? I know...I hate talking to doctors about anything like that. But, if you have to practically starve yourself to lose weight, there may be more going on. :hug:
