I am a 48 year old dad. Used to be really fit and partake in various sporting and exercising activities (skating, half marathons, dancing etc). After some personal challenges, my weight gradually increased to over 315 lbs over several years. But now feel that I want to lose weight and be able to do more active things with my 2 daughters and wife. Started a diet 9 days ago. My idea is to be careful during the week (fruit for breakfast, soup for lunch and a meal in the evening, no snacking or alcohol), and then relax at the weekend (or else I don't feel that I will be able to keep it up). Just started the 2nd week, and so far lost over 6 lbs.Target is to lose 1 stone in the first month, and then half a stone each month thereafter.

Great going and Cheryl had some great advice. I've been eliminating dairy and feel pretty good about it. I still have cheese from time to time but have switched to coconut yogurt and I love it.

Congrats on your choice to lose weight, I would recommend going for the highier fiber fruits and maybe some portien. The fiber helps to prevent sugar spikes and the protein will help you feel full longer.

Hi i’m Gem. I lost motivation and I’m trying to get back on track. I don’t have issues working out but I have issues sticking to eating healthy. I’m looking for someone or more than 1 person who can be there before I make bad food choices !!!

I am in the same boat, diet is my biggest challange too.

Hi Victory...I know what you's just a matter of getting my head your head into it.

I'm tired today...I think an early night is calling my name. I have a few chores to do tomorrow but I'm hoping I'll get to the gym in the afternoon. :)

This evening was a great yoga session...I'm really enjoying my planks. :) What did you do today?

tealady 5/21/2018 7:05:21 PM

I got a little carried away with my yoga and ended up with ice packs for the last couple of days but is good.

tealady 5/12/2018 8:28:18 AM

today is all about yoga, cleaning, relaxing. hopefully in that order... :) Happy Weekend. Oh and a quick store run somewhere in between.

A new month always makes me feel like here's an opportunity to make a change. Even if it's a small one. This month I'm going to focus on moving a little more. I started a challenge on the message board (look for message boards - light blue line on the top of this page) and then scroll down to the challenge section.

Toughest thing is getting started....and then doing it again tomorrow.

Hi, I'm Ana. I'm 41, married, no kids. I'm struggling to reach weight and fitness goals. I want to meet someone in similar circumstances who wants an accountability partner. We can keep tabs and motivate each other.

HI! I'm Jennifer. I'm 36, married with 6 kids. I would love a buddy to talk to on my weight loss journey. I just can't seem to lose this 40 lbs I acquired while being pregnant with my 6th baby. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
