I just got back from my walk. It's good when I do it early in the day. Because after doing all that work, I don't want to screw it up by eating the wrong stuff.

Leasmom I'm 5'6, too. Any idea what our ideal weight is supposed to be?

Hi Ladies!!

Lifestar posted this site on another forum. It is a site that has exercises along with pictures on how to do the exercises the right way. http://www.fatlosstips.com/tone.html

I havent had a chance to really look at it yet but I thought that I would share it here too since we were talking about exercises.


Didnt do Curves today....did yard sales instead

So I really havent done any exercising. Im going to start doing those wall push-ups tonight along with some leg lifts.

My Dh said that you can tell Ive lost a lot of weight in my face....HHHMMM......of all places, I didnt think that I had a fat head!!

VickiLynn, Here is a site that will give you an idea about your weight. http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm

I just did it and it gave almost the exact number for my body fat as Curves did.

I set my goal at 150 but have said that I will be happy with 175. Looks like I have a long way to go.

I'm still resting up from walking Friday

I have a choice, I can either go walking tomorrow or I can count that I did two laps instead of one-(we're talking on the long side of the riverwalk which is like walking the 6 laps I usually do on the smaller end) and then say that I walked 3 X's a week or I could go out and do it. I don't know...I feel like crud today because I caught a dry cough from walking on Friday with no coat, so I don't feel too good, maybe I'll feel better tomorrow but if not, I'll go walking on Monday.

Thanks for the ideal weight site! It says 167 for me. I LIKE THAT. I remember in the past, seeing charts that said 135 (haven't weighed that since I was 16). I was shooting for 165 as my ultimate goal (I'll see that about 100 pounds from now), but I thought I would still be considered overweight. This makes me feel better.

Leasmom, so you graduated to the long side of the walk
Didn't you say 6 laps on the short end was a mile? So, with 2 laps on the long end, you did 2 miles! WOW!

It says I should be 155 lbs

I would be satisfied with anywhere from 165 to 200 because I didn't look heavy when I was 200 lbs. 165 would make me look really skinny like I did when I was in middle school. That's too skinny but hey, why not!!!

You guys wont believe how happy I am today!!! I got weighed today and measured too......here are the results!!

Weight loss: 18.5 lbs

Inches lost: 18.25 inches

Body fat lbs: 11.47 lbs




My total weight loss is now 30lbs!! Now, Im must add this..... On my scale at home, I weighed 3 lbs more this morning but on thier scale the last time, I weighed one more lb than I did at home. Either way, Im really happy this is working!!!

Im praying that I dont wake up like before and have it reappear again!!

I didnt lose a thing in my hips and butt so that means more walking is a must now!! So I will be joining you in reporting in on my walking progress. PLEASE keep on me to do it to!!!!!


Almost forgot, In the middle of all of this, I lost my voice!! the last couple of years, If I get a chest cold, I lose my voice. My doc. said it had to do with my thyroid so as soon as I can talk again, I will be making an appt. for all tests that I have to have done along with my cholesteral.


I had some low carb ice cream to celebrate! I have to stop that though.......I love that stuff!!!

Ajrsmom! Great Job! How long did it take you to lose 30#? How do they measure body fat?

I know what you mean about the ice cream. That's my downfall, too. Now that the weather is warming up, it's even harder to resist.

The other day I was thinking it would be cool if we all lived close together so we could walk together.

Thanks VickiLynn!!

They measure body fat with this hand-held device. You grab on to it with both hands and hold it out in front of you and it supposedly reads it from your body. One thing that I dont understand is that the reading on this machine only went down 1% but yet it says that the body fat lbs lost is 11. Does this mean that 1% = 10lbs? I have to find that out today and Ill let you know.


I really, really wish that we all could walk together!! I used to walk with a girlfriend everyother night years ago and I lost 80lbs that way!!


I started Atkins on March 22 and Curves one week later.

Woohoo, congrats on your weight loss!!!

Now get to walking-LOL! Congrats on losing and just keep going. Make sure you only eat the half cup of icecream...get some Atkins syrups-(they're expensive)-but use can pour them on your icecream with some nuts or you can make a rootbeer float...just savor the amount y ou can have and don't over do it. I think I'm more in control when I have the half gallon than I am with the sandwich bars and icecream bars; I tend to eat two of them.

When I get back to my college I'm gonna go to the gym there, I can go for free-(now that's frugal). I never used it before but now I will. We're gonna make it!!!
