    ok so ive been reading a lot about boosting your metabolism. its said that we should definitely eat within 2 hours of waking (never skip breakfast) and eat at least 1000 calories per day because if not your bodies metabolism slows and its harder to loose weight we should eat every 4-5 hours drink plenty of water and exercise 5 days a week with 3 days being cardio and 2 strength trainning ( very important the more musle we build the speedier the metabolism is) we want to loose weight right we should always include protein in our meals and good carbs green veggies as well as fiber'

    lets give everybody time to shop for groceries and mentally prepair and totaly commit ourselves to this change.

    how does this sound?

    breakfast 1 fruits 1dairy 1 grain (ex. apple, yogurt ,toast)
    lunch 2 veggies 1 protein (ex. large salad small chicken breast)
    snack1 fruit 1 veggie 1 protein ( 1 cup grapes, carrots, almonds)
    dinner 2 -3 veggies 1 protein ( squash, brocolli, fish)

    8-10 glasses of water daily

    exercise 3 days of cardio 30-60min.
    2 days weight trainning 30-45min.

    no food after 7
    what do you think? when should we start? how abbout august 5th saturday?

    maybe we can bump up the exercise after a month?

    ok Now I'm afraid it don't seem that serious but It's like a life change for me so
    I have to adjust..
    Saturday? let's do that
    but ( finding my first excuses even if I haven't start yet) I will not be living alone or in my home for the august... so that may be a problem for me.

    I'm just too afraid of the outcome and self affirming thing that all imply..
    I don't think I'll keep up with the work out plan...

    Ok now that I have said that I know just what I'm doing .. setting myself for failure..

    oh I needed to have it on the out so maybe I can work on it....
    Did I tell you?
    I'm a mess

    That's a plan, my weight watchers week starts on Saturday also, so that will be good for me. I find that when you have a support system and you tell people what you are doing, it keeps you honest. We can do it ladies, and I have a few suggestions on some things that may get us thru before we can get to the boards to vent or whatever:
    -No negative self talk, it is a sure way to kill your motivation
    -Remember, everything you put in your mouth counts towards the end result
    -Decide what is more important-that bag of chips or your health!
    -If you do have a bad day where you eat too much of, don't exercise, if anything happens that makes you feel like your whole plan is shot to hell, PLEASE don't wait until tomorrow to pick it back up, get it going on the next meal, the next exercise time-don't give it anytime to turn into 'oh well I will start again on Monday'
    -Think of what we are doing as a lifestyle change and not a diet
    -And last but certainly not least, when you look in the mirror everyday, say one nice thing about yourself, embrace whatever imperfections you may see and remind yourself that all you are doing is enhancing what is already lovely!

    hi everyone i wanna join too

    is anyone else a member of sparkpeople.com? it's free. we can also create a team on their and i think it's easier to stay accountable. you have to put in all your food and physical activity and they generate nifty reports. i think for teams we all have access to each other's info?

    either way i can do it here or there

    currently i'm, 5'5 203 pounds, size 16/36 (euro size) pants. my body fat is 40%

    my goal is 5'9 ( yeah i know i cant grow that way ) 160 pounds, size 8/30 pants; 20% body fat.
    for me the problem is with eating. I'm pretty muscular (under the fat) and i've worked out pretty much consistently all my life and was very athletic. my body type is mesoendomorph

    eating wise i'm eating more whole food products, less meat, more seafood, more raw foods

    workout wise: i run 3 days a week on the treadmill varying the prgram wach day, elliptical 3 days a week, yoga twice a week, and free weights twice a week.

    I want in too. I am 5'6" and weigh 215 lbs. I need to lose like 65-75 lbs. I wear 16-18. I want to break it down in 5 lb intervals, so I won't get overwhelm.

    I want to:
    -cut out soda
    -drink more water
    -cardio everyday 45-60 min

    I eat out for lunch everyday. Does anyone have any suggestions on healthy foods to eat at fast food places?

    Taking these classes, I've put on 15 pounds since March.

    I now need to lose 27 but want to lose 50. I'm 5'9", 190 lbs., size 12 bottoms and 16-18 tops.

    GalaxyGirl: The team stuff sounds great. Hopefully we can get that going. I am so NOT motivated right now and need some external accountability.

    I think we should weigh in once weekly, Saturdays to keep it consistant (I hate the scale, btw!!!)...and to take sting out of the large number, you can also consider breaking your goal down into 10% amounts--for example, I weigh 213 so my first 10% of that will be 21 pounds, and then I make another 10% goal of my weight and keep going until the 86 is gone. I find that a lot easier than looking at that big number, it doesn't make it seem like it is really that much. I got that from WW, i got a lot of good info from it and I will always share it with you guys.

    One breakfast/snack idea that I got from a friend of mine is chocolate soy milk-banana shakes-frozen banana, ice, soy milk (it doesn't have to be chocolate, but that is how I make mine) and you jsut throw it in the blender. And there you have something w/protein and fruit. You can add a lot of different things for flavor, peanut butter, vanilla extract, whatever you want.

    And sugasnaps, its not if you lose the 10, its when! So you better get ready to have a closet full of treats ;-)

    I eat out for lunch everyday. Does anyone have any...

    can you at all pack? fast food adds in sugar and other additives - even for things that are supposed to be healthy like salads. plus you'll have control of what you put in and will know exactly what you're eating when it comes time to record what you eat.

    if you have to eat out, and depending on where you live look for meditarranen or mid east places. i livein nyc and if i have to eat out and want healthy fast and cheap, i go to a falafel place (chickpeas in a pita bread) and can get it in less than 5 minutes for $3. it doesnt sound appetizing but it realy is trust me

    another option is subway - do the salads or if you have to do the sandwich get the wheat bread of the whole grain one.

    i'd advise everyone to get a body fat analysis as well just to have a better idea of whats feasible and safe for you. for instance my height weight charts says i should be at 115 for a small frame. my body fat analysis says that my muscles, organs, and bones weigh 128. adding a healthy 20-25% body fat to keep me from looking like skeletor means i should be 153-160.. that's a huge difference over that scale

    That really sounds good. I'm adding it to my menu.

    if you have to eat out, and depending on where...

    I think I could try packing my own lunch. This could save me some money too.

    its actually not that bad if you work in an office, i just bring stuff for the week and keep it in the fridge. just be prepared to have your coworkers looking all up in your food telling you how good it loosk once you have it prepared
    what i usually bring are pita, hummus and veggies for sandwiches or salad fixings and seasoned tuna for salads.

    if that's not an option then partition things up on the weekend using those glad tupperware dishes with the compartments.

    and you're right, you'll save so much more money
