This is such a great idea guys and I will definately be joining you soon!


Tammy-- Just a tip.. maybe we should start a new thread for the diet/exercise each week... i have to imagine that diet and exercise motivation is something that we are all going to continue for a long while and this thread will get veryyy long. In another forum I am on they do a new one weekly and I think it helps everyone "start fresh". It will probably also be more encouraging to newbies who want to join in the motivation as having pages and pages to go through may make someone feel overwhelmed and like they missed too much.. Just a thought!


Everyone sounds like they're getting way motivated. I, myself, know that I'm not heavy but throughout college and my first year of work I have definately put on a little more weight than I would like to be carrying.. especially for my wedding!! I think it's awesome that we can all motivate one another and share food ideas and exercise tips! Happy weight loss girls!

Kristina - good idea about the weekly threads for diet/exercise!


Here's today:

1) Exercise: 1 hour stationary bike & upper body weights

2) I've decided I'm going to join Weight Watchers for the extra support and structure I need.


3) Food:

Breakfast: Sunrise quesadilla (low carb wheat tortilla w/ cheese and fake meat (I'm a veg + seafood = "faux vegetarian" as I prefer to call it). & strawberries


Lunch: fake chicken w/ pesto and pasta, pineapple slice


Dinner: Soy jalapeno "cheeseburger" w/ lettuce, mayo & ketchup (no bun) and a salad w/ chopped walnuts, sliced grapes & blue cheese w/ vinagrette


Dessert: 1/2 an oatmeal choc-chip cookie (FI made them last night)

Report for Monday:

No exercise - had to clean up a disasterous kitchen in the am!



Bkfst - Kashi Go Lean cereal w/soy milk & blueberries, coffe w/soymilk

Lunch - Mexican food (no left overs to eat) carne asada burrito - didn't eat the tortilla, had a few bites of the rice & beans & a few chips - but not all of em!

PM snack- apple & diet coke

dinner- FI made pasta w/chicken & light alfredo sauce. I know it's easy, but I hate it if we have too much pasta, makes me feel bloated. Of course that's what I just ate for lunch too!

Apertif (doen't that sound sexy?) - dirty vodka martini.


Today's report:

Excercise - 2 mile power walk, 10 push-ups, 30 squats & 15 lunges on each side.

Bkfst: very measly bowl of cereal (end of the box) w/soy milk & 10 raw almonds. Coffee w/soy milk.

Lunch: leftover pasta & chicken from last night.

Dinner - Plans are to steam some tilapia (fish) and braise some awesome greens I got at the farmers market.

I have been bad about posting my excerise/diet but I don't have the time lately. I did workout 3 times at the gym this past week and yesterday I went on a 13 mile bike ride! It was awesome. Today I am headed to the gym after work. I am going to do 45 minutes of cardio and arms.


I have also been pretty good about my portions too.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
