Default Getting Healthy

So, I thought it would be good to have a place to post and talk about our health goals.

What are your goals
How do you plan to meet them
Do you have a time line/plan


I don't want this to be a contest. But, we could post challenges like increase your veggie intake this week....

So who's in? Are you with me???

So my goal is to get healthy this year. That includes eating well, exercising and finally going to see a couple of doctors that I need to see. Gastrointerologist, heart doctor and dentist. I so neglect myself!

My weight loss goal is 30 pound by my birthday. May 14. I have lost 6 pounds so far this year.

My exercise goal is to not only start but to make exercise a part of my daily life. Weather that includes a walk or exercise video. Minimum one loop around our property each day.

I have 8 weeks until Zacks christening. My goal is to be down 10-15 pounds by then. I have a dress I want to fit into.

To accomplish this goal. I will use fitness pal to track my food intake and exercise output.

I am also weaning myself off of wheat.

i will begin using MFP again. i'm not so worried about calories. my coach told me to watch my carbs and for my size take in only 96g of net carbs after fiber is accounted for. to jumpstart i need to have two lean complete meals with fiber twice a day for two weeks. that is my goal.

i have kept off ten of the 17 lbs. i lost last year. the seven came back b/c of not being able to exercise. my body was used to burning 300-500K a day and it went down to zip per day extra, so that was keeping off a pound a week. I will be able to be doing some movement again soon. Looking forward to it. i am still in size 8-10 and am glad about that, way better than fourteens.

I love having Zack around! Not only is he fun to snuggle and play with, but he helps me burn tons of calories! Walking, picking up , putting down, playing, pushing stroller...... It never ends. So I'm now down 7.4 pounds!

i walked on the treadmill today for ten minutes per orthopedic dr. start slow he says, i can only do it flat and did 3 min at warm up of 2 and then did speed 3 for seven min. i couldn't believe i was starting to perspire with that little bit. i am so sadly out of physical shape. Oh well, it felt good to be able to do even that much.

THen i don't know how many K i burned doing house work today and up and down the stairs and washing floors and zooming around. I will MFP it. I did MFP tracking yesterday. Sunday is my start day.

I think I would make a short term goal...be in the weight section below the one I'm in (Like, for example, the 120's...which I will never EVER see again, by the way! ) before April 1st. Its SO doable...since that is only 5.5 pounds that I have to lose!

I'm going to make the goal of taking my thyroid medicine in the morning before breakfast like I am supposed to. And that's it for now.

With little kids in the house this probably wouldn't work for you since you won't want medicine out where the kids can get it, but the only way I have found to always take my thyroid meds in morning before breakfast is to have them right next to my bed with a glass of water and take them before I even get out of bed in the morning. Once I am out of bed I forget all about them till I go to take the rest of my meds and then it is too late since I have to take the thyroid meds 30-45 minutes before I take anything else.

If I can come up with another idea to help you I'll pass it on. I find they are very annoying meds. Not supposed to have caffeine for 60 minutes after taking either but that doesn't happen.....

Yeah, that's not happening here either. It's bad enough they want me to wait to have breakfast, not waiting for coffee, too.

Putting them on the counter (all the way back) is worth trying. At least until my kids are a little taller.

Have you seen the app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wate...394032132?mt=8

I've been using it a few days & it has really helped me keep my water intake up. I have a harder time in the winter getting in all of my water. This has given me some motivation to getting it in.

Need to think of something tangible to motivate me to get ten pounds off! I'm thinking maybe a new suitcase/roller bag. Doesn't sound very exciting does it. Maybe new shoes.

Got my workout in. 1.7 miles. I really picked up the pace! But, i can only go somfast here, the terain effects my speed. For my fitness pal it doesn't give me great calories but I feel that walking my property is more like hiking than walking. It's a lot of up and down and very uneven, rocky, slanty .... So I think I'm going to count part of my time as hiking which counts as more calories.

So question. Do you think I'm doing this to make myself feel better or do you think I am being realistic? Guess I need to contemplate this.

I always tell people that if you cheat on your calorie count it doesn't mean that you are fooling your body. You won't lose faster only cheating yourself. So I try and keep it real.

I take care of the kids. First thing I do for me is make coffee. Today is actually the first day I haven't remembered/cared enough to do it since posting. Guess I'll do it now.

so true, if you really feel as if you are exerting for the hiking part then I would choose hiking.

I decided why MFP and Spark doesn't work well for me. I never cook the same way twice. I almost always cook from scratch. I don't like taking the time to look up all the ingredients to make the recipes and I am a poor judge on how many servings something makes because we always have so much left over. very difficult for me to keep track of the calories this way.

I have that trouble also. But I just decided to start entering as best I can. I have started weighing and measuring again. I only enter the big stuff. No herbs or spices.

Getting frustrated! Thought I would post rather than eat my frustration. I can't believe I've plateaued already. I've been exercising much more regularly, journaling my food intake and mostly keeping my calories under 1200. So why am I still stuck at 7 pounds lost??? I know all the answers. I know this happens. But, it doesn't make it any less frustrating!!!


Sorry for the rant/whine.

i don't know how much you weigh but 1200 calories is not very many calories. if you are not eating enough your body will hang onto what you want to lose because it thinks it is starving. Don't know how many weeks you have only been down 7lbs. but if it's only a couple that is not a plateau just an adjustment your body is going through. If you are walking (hiking) you may have built a bit more muscle and that will not show up as "weight loss" it's really about shaping not about the pounds. Keep up the good work.

So glad for my Slim and Fiber which keeps me from over eating. Normally I would eat two large pieces of corn bread and would have cleaned up that extra helping of roast beef hash. Since the slim and fiber keep me feeling full there was no way i could even think of eating another bite. and I LOVE cornbread. LOL

Very inspiring to read all of your goals and motivations. I've decided that this past Christmas was the last "fat family picture" I was going to take and send out on Christmas cards. I have about 45 lbs to lose and honestly don't care about the number on the scale. I want to fit into the TUBS of size 6 clothing I have in storage since I haven't been able to lose the baby weight....the "baby" is 4 1/2 years old!

I was a life-time member of weightwatchers back in 2003 (before children) and even worked as a receptionist. I love the program and totally dig writing down everything. Just got the iTrackBites app for my ipod. I am not going to meetings as 1)I can't afford them right now, 2)I can't make the time and place each week, and 3)I'm really not the rah-rah, group cheerleader type. I know what I have to do and just need to buckle down to do it.

My first challenge for February is to not eat after 8p. I will be working on a reasonable bedtime for my next challenge. The 2nd should help the first quite a bit!

Thanks for the opportunity to put goals to paper...er...screen.

Best of luck everyone!

I am inspired by your monthly challenges. I'm gonna call it my 12 step program.

So...this month...since I'm decluttering, I'm gonna work on my water intake. Scraperwannabe said something about a water app...I'm not owned by Apple, but by Google...and did see a few water tracker apps.

Ditto! So true, soooooo true!

And, to be on topic, I didn't take my pill yesterday but I think that's the only day I've skipped. Today, I took it before coffee, but just barely before. Still, better than not taking it at all! I need to get my prescription refilled. I'll add that to my list for today.

Welcome Rachel. I'm also a WW lifetime member who is over her goal weight. I ammgoingmoccasionally as I hate paying. I do want to get int and get the new program info.

Have you considered starting to journal again so that you know where you are? I wasn't sure but it sounds like you are.

Hey ladies! I finally decided to get back into control of my health. I started weight watchers about 2 weeks ago, right now I need that accountability to help me start the habit. My first goal major goal is just losing 10% body weight (hopefully before I go to London in May). So far my main change has been tracking all my foood, I'm going to start working on increasing activity on Thursday.

Paula, my mom takes her thyroid when she wakes up in the middle of the night, she says between needing to go to the bathroom or dad flip-floping and waking her up she wakes up most mornings an hour or two before the alarm and takes her pill then. Keeps it on the counter near the bathroom sink. Not sure how that would work with 3 little ones but thought I'd put it out there. Congrats on Miss Amelia! Last time I was flying you had just had your 2nd adorable little boy

Hey Cory, nice Tom"see" you again. WW is a grat plan if you work it! You will learn a lot about healthy eating. Don't get carried away by buying a lot of their low cal snacks. They are expensive and not that great for you!

Aw, thanks! Hmm. That's an idea. I'll pay attention this week to when I wake up and see if that would be better! Thanks!
