Yay! Love that you've decided to start this thread. It's perfect :)

 

 

My name is Perian and I don't really have a weight loss goal in terms of pounds, but I do know that I want to look and feel healthier than I am. Over the last couple of years I have definitely gained some weight. I was diagnosed with a knee condition a few years ago and it's greatly affected my mobility and also the activities than I can participate in. I've played soccer most of my life until a few years ago when I had to stop because of my knee. 

My goal is to find something that I love to do that also helps me get back into the shape that I was once in! 

 

I'm actually thinking of going back to Hot Yoga again because when I was doing it before it was very rewarding for me.

I've started watching what i'm eating now that summer is coming to an end it makes it a lot easier! I've been making myself fresh juices everyday for lunches (green apple, lemon juice, kale, pressed pineapple juice) and i've already noticed a bit of a difference!!

Hey! Thanks for starting this! To find the group on MFP you go to community then to groups and the Group is called BDW Brides...I've added you to it....I think?! I'm not really sure how it works really...lol there has been no action in that group so far so let hope we can get it going. My name on MFP is Diaryofadillydallier.

 

OK...

 

Hey Everyone! I'm Shavonne :) I'm 35 and I'm getting married Nov 25th! exactly 90 days and 6 hours from right now! I gained a pile (40lbs!) of weight when I moved to Toronto 8 years ago and haven't been able to shake it since! I've tried Gyms, Personal trainers...but food is my problem...Damn it, it Just tastes so good!

 

 I've recently started the 21 Day Fix (no Shakeology) my first round before my Vacation went pretty well and I lost 9lbs and 4 inches. Its a pretty easy program and it does really help with with portion control...it just takes a fair amount of planning sometimes.

 

I don't really have specific weight goal right now...any loss is a win for me :) My First goal is I want to start another "serious" round of 21 Day Fix next week and continue for 3 rounds in total before the wedding. My second Goal is to actually go to my Zumba class twice a week :) I love it but I'm just so lazy after work...I need to start forcing myself to get off my ass!

@perianjay

 

OMG! most fun ever! lol! I'm dying every class! Dying laughing and dying because I'm out of shape! According to my fitbit I burn about 650cals doing Zumba for an hour!

 

I go to a class in the basement of the rec centre up the street with a bunch of old ladies (more my pace).  I have went other Zumba classes and didn't like them as much because the instructor was too fast, too serious, and the other people in the class were too good at it! lol!

 

So if you don't like it the first time you try it, just try it somewhere else.

@Meandhim
Interesting about Zumba. I did it once and didn't like it either ..... So I tried Les Mills Body Jam which is a mix of hip hop, house, Latin, etc and have been going for 4 years. Dance is a great way to burn calories and no one cares what you look like (or I tell myself that anyways) lol

@perianjay yay, welcome to the group! Oh I'm so sorry to hear about your knee. Having knee injuries is really hard so I'm glad you're looking into something like hot yoga. And I'm glad to hear the juicing is going well. I'll have to bug you for recipes. We have a juicer that's currently collecting dust lol

@Meandhim thank you so much for the instructions. If we can get the group going, I think it would be a great way of keeping in touch with each other too. I hear you about food tasting so good. Why do all the bad things taste so good? Congratulations on losing 9 lbs and 4 inches, that's a big accomplishment :) What's the 21 day fix?

And I agree, Zumba or any type of dancing is a great way to burn calories. I join Zumba class every now and then but sometimes the classes are too full and I find it difficult to move around. My fave was Zumba step!

I love STEP. Man has it come along way from the good old days lol. We do athletic step and it barely mimics step as we know it anymore. I'm dying by the end.

@perianjay the classes are so fun even though it's intimidating at first. You kinda feel out of sorts when you don't know the dance moves but I'm sure you burn more calories just trying to keep up lol By the second song, you come to the realization that only the instructor looks good doing it ad no one is watching is judging you lol I'm definitely sweating buckets during dance classes.
