Good idea on lowering the goal. I was always told to make a goal and minus 10 Lbs. and the reason is because if you should start to gain some back, you will have time to catch it and make it right again. GREAT JOB!!!

For me I definitely plan to add that extra 10 Lbs. It will seem weird for me being so thin, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. :)

I am officially now back into my 16's. I'm so glad! I had gained back into my 22's *cry* but hey, I had to take my life back and get back into control. I'm doing it now though and feeling super incredible!!! I'm down 33 Lbs. from where I'd gained back from too. Back down into the 240's -- so I'm rocking and rolling here! :)

Yesterday was my workout off day - so I didn't do much there. But Thursday I really hit a home run! I worked out for over 2 hours all at once. I did my treadmill for over 45 minutes, my Stationary Bike for 48 mins and did 30 mins of Calisthenics. I concentrate mostly on my upper arms and thigh and buttocks areas - as those tend to be my trouble spots.

I plan to do more of the same today! I do believe this girls' routine is finally back on hit! :)

Have a great weekend!!!!

Holy cow! You are really on a roll! That is great that you are back into the 16's again! I have to admit I"m a bit jealous though. I didn't get into the 16's until I was under 200. I bet you look awesome! :)

I've been running 3 miles once a week, 1 mile or so once or twice a week and keeping up on the weights. I ran a little over 3 yesterday and am having trouble with my good knee. It is just on the outside of my knee, right below my knee cap. I'll ice it tonight and do the bike and upper arms tomorrow and see how it goes.

Unfortunately, I've also been into the Halloween candy that the kids got, so I need to run more than ever!:sad:

I really need to rededicate myself to this and start eating better instead of just relying on exercise to lose weight. I've done that before and as soon as I cut back on the exercise a little bit I blow up again.

You are really inspiring me LilMiss! Thanks for coming on here so I can see someone else is doing so well!:hi:

Hey does anyone know about a website that you can put in a route (say Pennsylvania to California) and as you walk/run/go on the elliptical, you can input your miles and it will tell you where on your "route" you are? I saw a website like that once, but can't find it now. I would like to do that and then when I walk the amount of miles to complete my "route", maybe I'll take a vacation to the destination. Seems like a fun challenge, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a website that did something like that. Thanks!

I have seen sites where you can map out a route in a specific city or area, but nothing like your describing. That would be pretty neat to have though.

I have had trouble getting started on the exercise department but you gave me a brilliant idea just like a successful business woman I have to have a plan (map) to guide me on the right direction. If I have a schedule I have to follow I will find my way thank you will keep on logging in to be successful.

Hi Rizz! Yes, I *must* have it all mapped out. I notice that when I just leave it up to chance, I'll usually just not do it, or won't work as hard when I do. This keeps me motivated and doing what I'm supposed to.

I also tweak it monthly so if I can do more, or longer I'm adding it.

I post in on my wall in my workout room, and now I've decided to place a wall calendar next to it. I'm going to write on my calendar that I have done all my workouts - so I can look back and see my progress!!

I also take all Holidays off, so I'll know if I have a free day coming up.

:)

Good luck!!!

I'm in. I have to get back to being active again. I'm joining my old gym later this week. I have 2 snowboarding trips later this winter and if I don't start now, I'll be paying for it on the slopes! Last year I went to Whistler, during the Olympics, and I was like a sausage in my ski suit. I could barely move. So depressing! There I am at the most best ski resort in the world (according to ski magazines....... and me!) and I was miserable!

So my goal is to go the gym 3x a weight and do 45 mins of weight lifting and 40 mins. of cardio. Cardio will consist of a few minutes of rowing and then biking or treadmill. Last summer I was doing 40 mins. of rowing. It's such a good workout, but I have to work up to that. Once I'm a bit more fit I will go back to spin classes, but I'd DIE if I tried one now.

On 3 other days I will walk or snowshoe.

Too bad there wasn't a ticker tape or a motivational way of displaying our exercising successes! I'm excited about the sense of accomplishment that comes from a good workout.

Good luck everyone!

Hey there kooky!! I think there are some tickers that you can log in as far as miles, minutes etc if that's something you might like to do.

Your routine sounds great!! Check in whenever you can so I can see how it's going!

Today I did 30 Minutes on my stationary bike. I'm going to do some miles on my treadmill later too, and some calisthenics as well. Once January starts I'm going to stick to my routine 100%!! It's not going to be easy, but I have to do it. Especially the walking or treadmill. I'm not losing if I'm not doing that!!!

Good luck everyone!!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
