Weight Loss support for 2011 brides!!

Recommended Posts

Went to visit my in-laws over the weekend, cheated while I was there (having a Ukrainian FMIL, it's impossible NOT to!) had perogys, pereshke, cream, butter, carbs....I'm drooling thinking about it :) Anyway, ate IN MODERATION, did not go overboard, and still lost another pound on WW! Awesome! Down 8 pounds! Engagement party in two weeks, no more cheating till then!

Blah, so ladies I got really sick tuesday night last week and just felt better yesterday, so I haven't exercised and haven't been eating well (it wasn't the stomach flu so unfortunately I wasn't forced to not eat). So tomorrow will be my get back on track day with eating and exercise, not super excited aboutt diet but excited to start working otu again, I feel so much better when I do! Also, my FI is so awesome, bought a treadmill on thursday and has turned one of our guest bedrroms into our own gym, complete with swivel/tilt mount for our flat screen so it will be in front of treadmill or over to the side to video tapes, Also bright paint to get me motivated and mirrors all on onside of wall! HE is awesome!

My new motivation to stay on the treadmill, AT&T U-Verse shows and Netflix Instant Watch on my iPhone. I watched a whole season of Dexter while working out :)

Hello girls!!  Since this was on the front page I decided to join in with you lovely ladies and start the process.  I know checking in with you will help keep me on track and keep me motivated.

 

Background:  Fitness freak, previous Fitness/Figure competitor, soccer player and fitness trainer in training!! :)

 

Current status:  Just had surgery on both my feet so I am not allowed to do anything right now.  I should be starting physical therapy next week and I'll progress from there.

 

Goal:  I am just going to be striving for a physical change that most others won't see.  More defined arms, tighter legs and butt and just overall leanness/tightness.  Weight doesn't mean anything to me.  Since I have competed before I've been thru it all and I know how my body works and what it looks like at its top physical condition but I know it was unhealthy and unrealistic.  So in order to get to where I want I would guess it might be 10 lbs or it could be 0 and I'll still be ok with it. 

 

Usual activities:  Hot yoga, indoor cycle, weight training and running.  If I do cardio in the gym its the moving stairs, rowing machine or bike. 

 

Eating: I am a vegetarian who tries to eat raw and organic as much as possible but I still eat a lot of not so healthy cooked/baked food.  My weakness is sweets - cookies and brownies the most.  I try to brush my teeth right after I eat so I no longer crave something sweet.  It has helped but I still pig out on occasion.  :)

 

My wedding isn't until mid-November so most of you girls might be long gone by then but I know it will be great to have you along the way for support and check-ins.  Keep sharing your stories and experiences.  It helps us all.  Good Luck Ladies!!

sxcT - sorry about your feet what happened????? I have a question for you and I hope you don't mind.  I lost a bunch of weight and that's all great...I really want tone and definition now but I have no idea what to do to get to this goal.  Since you are a trainer I hope you are able to answer this question.

Hey Tenny!

 

Well I will tell you what any other trainer would tell you - weight train!!

 

Most ppl only want to do cardio but that wont give you the physique you want.  Lifting weights will help sculpt the body - it WILL NOT make you look like a man (which so many women fear).  I would definitley suggest a full body weight training routine to start with.  Have you done any type of weight training previously?  Do you have someone around you who can show you proper form?
