October weight loss challenge...

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies i'm in!!! This is just what I need for some motivation!! Thanks for starting this. I have been trying soooo hard to stick to my diet (very strict) and exercise at least 5 days a week, but man is it tough especially with no workout buddy. This will definately help me YAY!!!

 

For the question on diet soda- I was told to limit it to a couple glasses a week. My old trainer said to stay away from sweetners b/c they can realiy hinder weight loss.

I don't think we need to use sparkpeople to do this challenge... I really like the nutrition and exercise trackers, but the message boards are a little tough to navigate, especially at first. We could certainly do it on here, just keeping each other motivated :) For those that joined or are already members, we have a BDW team, so come find us! I find my hardest times to watch what I eat are at work (I do shift work) and there is ALWAYS junkfood around. I've been good today though :)

Ok, my friend at work gave me a book to read called "Skinny Bitch." Has anyone read ithuh.gif I'm only on chapter 2 but it's harsh!!!! The writing is funny, and the strategy is all about Tough Love when it comes to thinking and eating like a skinny bitch.

 

Apparently diet soda is not only making me fat, but unhappy too. WOW!!!

What a great book title! I'll have to look for that. I pretty much lived on Diet Coke, but I've gone cold turkey for the last 2 weeks, and I feel pretty good. The first few days were tough, but I feel better now. I'm really trying to up my water, and its getting easier.

I just got back from the gym and did really good today. 40 minutes of cardio and strength training today! I'm tired, but feel good :)

I'm having a hard time giving up the diet coke. That's my one vice. I can give up the junk food, I just LOVE my diet coke. I buy a 20oz bottle everyday with lunch. Today, I dumped some of it out before I started drinking it. My friend who gave me the book said, "It's better off in the garbage than on your A$$." Good point.

I hear ya... I think diet coke was the only thing I drank for a long time. Working out really helps me to drink the water. And I honestly couldn't just cut down my diet coke. If I drink it, I want more. Its like liquid crack - lol.

LOL!!! It totally is!!!! I once gave up diet coke for over 6 months. The first week or two were the toughest since I was losing my caffine high, but then it got better.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
