I mean there are lots of us on here that are but anyone at home that you see face to face? If not you could report to me if you want..lol I'll be your drill sargent!! Get off you lazy @ss and do some sit ups....run...run..run...lol j/k We are all here to offer support and encouragement!
    That's the kind of motivation I need...that's what I am use to...I have to somehow get it in my mind and it's not working

      I just started buying exersize videos. I have a gym membership but I can't find time in my schedule to go as much as I need to.
      I thought they would be kind of cheesy but it's actually pretty fun. It really works too, I did the pilates at home and I could really feel it.

        Yeah I tried the pilates, and it didn't do too much. I need the ones that are going to kick my arse...I am a very physical person.

              I wanted to join the biggest loser on here but my digital camera is broke:-(
              My FSIL claimed she is getting us a camera before we leave for Jamaica so I am really reluctant to go spend the money on one. I would be all for posting my pics and weight loss but with my camera broken I can't do the pictures right now.
              I was kinda frustrated this morning because I have done killer workouts for the last 3 days. Sunday I walked 4 and ran 1 mile. Then the last 2 days I have ran/walked 2.5 miles and then last night I had a craving for a DQ Butterscotch dipped cone. I ate the ice cream and not the cone and not only am I not down anything since Saturday morning but I am up a pound!!! I thought I would surly be down atleast one pound! Kinda has me frustrated! I have been at the same weight for 2 weeks (I had the flu the week before and I did not work out for 4 day so I expected it that week) so I thought this week the pound would come right off. I am skipping my workout today. I think I need to switch it up alittle again.
              See b-girl we are all in the same boat! It is a huge battle! I am down 22 pounds to date and 17 inches but I started a lot heavier than most on here and have a long way to go!

                Good thing you are thinking about switching it up because I think that's what you need to give your body a little shock. I am going to start getting my butt in gear and stop sitting back and hoping. I am just lazy and lack the motivation (hence the name of this thread )

                I think if we keep this up we can motivate each other. On a side note, I want to post a pic of me in the dress but I don't have anyone to zip me up and take the picture. My FH was with me when I bought the dress (we shop together non stop, so why not for my wedding gown...) and he has already forgot what it looks like on me, so I don't want to remind him if he zips me up and takes the picture. I think I am going to go to David's tomorrow, since they did not put a clasp at the zipper, and have someone put that on and then I will try on the dress and have them take a pic of me...Fair enough I will see you in a few hours.

                  Yep youre right its time to change it up! Start weight or resistance training. It is a battle!!! I wish it was easier.
