Getting Ready for Spring Bootcamp



Recommended Posts

That's great Avilla about your son's 8lb loss and good job on the spring cleaning. I'm doing a little bit at a time.

I weigh in on Sunday morning:nervous I'll post my results:rolleyes My DH works 12 hour shifts so I have to wait until 7:30 tonite to hit the gym with my 45min of cardio. My boys and I will be going to the park today and will be getting in some walking.

Gained two pounds. Ick.

Got on the treadmill, though, and did a 27 minute mile. For me, that's really good. I can't WAIT until I can do a 15-minute mile!

Congrats on the exercise, lala! It's coming, I can feel it! :)

Just did my 1st 45 min for the weekend challenge & I'm hating all of you now! (Just kidding.) Haven't done 45 min straight in, um, well, yeah... 10 years? I'm HURTING!!!!! All I did was walk, lol, but I'm feeling it for sure!

You'd better be doing it! If I'm hurting, the rest of you'd better be hurting! :)

(( Hugs! )) I commit to me TODAY!

Avilla, that is wonderful news about your son!! I am so excited for him! And it sounds like you have been really busy. I don't envy you at all. Think of all the calories you have to be scrubbing away though!

Isn't it funny how when we put a time on something it seems to take forever because we are watching the clock way to closely! It seems to be the longest 45 mins ever! It is worth it though, I just have to keep reminding myself that.....as I crawl to the couch for rest! :heh:

I did 5 hours of walking around at 2 parks today, and I did not get off program with all the temptation around me today. The BH festival was great, I brought 2 African necklaces instead of food:biggrin1: Tomorrow is my REAL test, we are having an ethnic food feast after Church and all those carby foods will be for the taking, I am PLANNING on staying on my M/E fast, I will succeed, I will be strong, I can do it, I need :help: I weigh in in the morning, I'll let you guys know how I did..I feel a lil scared.....and nervous:nervous

GOOD MORNING PEOPLE

I see some good news out there. Avilla I am so proud of you and your son. I know he is on cloud nine. Keep up the great eating habits.

Tann your commitment and dedication is next to none.

You guys are great for trying to get those 2 45min cardio sessions in. I got 1 in Saturday but Sunday I just ran up and down the stairs all day. My legs, hips and thighs are hurting today so I know I worked something.

This past month has been terrible for me...I just dont understand why I am not losing anything...I have been teetering and tottering on the same 2 lbs all month regardless of what I do...Some of the people at work just look at me like I must be doing something wrong and cheating and they look disappointed...Others say that they just dont understand why the weight is just not melting away due to how much I am able to eat...I have to say myself that I am not understanding whats going on with me right now, but its discouraging

Avilla I am not going to sing my song because you have been here with me. Time is on your side and you have to stay positive. It takes time, look at it as a plateau. Your body has been through a lot over the years and you are trying to fix it all in a matter of months. Nooo it takes longer then that. Look at you, 2.5 pounds away from your halfway point and you mean to tell me that by your bandiversary you won't have more then that off. You have a lost every month and this one won't be any diffrent. You have 4 months and in that time I know you will look awesome.

It sounds like someone needs a reality check. Where are the pics? You need a new picture so you can see the progress.

You see Avilla, that's another reason why I didn't tell anyone, it's too much pressure, which I can surely do without.

I didn't get a chance to do the other part of the workout, was at Church almost all day. I stayed on program at our Church feast, I'm very proud of myself for this, they had ALOT of food. I ate some baked chix and a taste of smoked turkey.

I had been drinking greentea last week with caffeine, so I think that is what held up my weightloss. Caffeine does it to me everytime:faint: This is day 4 for me on the M/E fast and I'm feeling good, no cravings, I got thru this weekend which was my true test. Now I can make it thru Thurs I'm really looking forward to eating some non starchy veggies:hungry:

Honey your body is adjusting, you may have lost a few pounds but what about inches. Feel free to measure again. I know you have your measurements. I have not lost much but people say they are seeing the diffrence and I can actually buy a smaller size clothes.

Do you need to give us a positive word for the day?

Oh yeah besides your family ....I love you!!!

Well Tan that is good to know because I think the majority of us are like that and we allow who we want to win at that moment. You are winning most of the time. Take it and run with you. You Go Girl!!!

Avilla, oh I forgot....even tho I only told 3 people about my band(DH, my best friend, and my out of state brother) I am beginning to still feel pressure from people, telling me to keep going, keep doing good, what am I eating, etc. And I know they are watching me like a hawk to see "when" I am gonna start regaining the weight. I've got news for those people...It ain't happening:heh:

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
