following: dannifatso's own diet
performance: losing 0.6 lb a week

I'm a 55 year old wife, mother, and grandmother that has always lead an active lifestyle. I've been on FS for a few years and did reach my goal of 125, and even got a few pounds lower and KEPT it off for quite sometime. I had a set back last year due to an old, old injury and ultimately had a four level neck fusion due to severe cervical stenosis. I'm healing well and have pushed and pushed beyond my PT program to try to get back to the active me. I hope to be able to try running again this Spring, but for now it's walking, elliptical, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and light weight workouts with resistance bands or 3 to 5 pound weights. I'm trying like HECK to get back in shape before I need to try cramming my body into summer clothes. I got rid of my fat summer clothes and I'm either going to look like a stuffed sausage or be naked this Summer. Wish me luck!

Anyone use NikePlus?
Sorry I've been gone awhile. I started a challenge on Nike+ for 90 days, it's called Fat Secret Members Challenge. Please go to the Nike running site and join! We've got to move it to lose it. See you there!

Anyone use NikePlus?
The nike+ kit (sensor and receiver) is $30.00. Around where I live they sell them at Target and Dick's Sporting Goods. It must be used with an iPod nano. If you don't already have one of those, they usually run around $149.00 so it really increases the cost, but if you've got one it's pretty inexpensive. Check our the demo on www.nikeplus.com It keeps records of your runs and everytime you plug it in it automatically posts your miles to all your Nike challenges. We have a lot of people at work who have them, and we create a lot of challenges amongst ourselves and set up teams, and really get in the miles trying to win.

It probably wouldn't do so good in that application, and it doesn't record your steps like a pedometer does. Before I got the nike system I tried a pedometer and didn't have much luck with it, but I think they've come a long way. I just use it when I know I'm going for a walk or a run, but don't use it on a continuous basis. Sounds like your pedometer is doing the trick for you. I used to run all the time, but now I have a bad knee that will need to be replaced soon, so I do a lot more walking. It keeps track of your 'average' pace so I didn't want my pace to go down by using it for walks, but eventually --that will be all I can do. It also tells you your calories burned because you program in your weight.

You don't need to wear Nike shoes or run, if you already have an iPod, you just buy the kit that comes with a receiver for the iPod and a sensor that you can put in a pouch tied to your shoe laces. There are 1000's of Nike challenges posted on www.nikeplus.com and they're very motivational. When my kids used to live near me, we always held an Annual Mother's Day Run, now we can still do it, we just post a private challenge run whenever it's convenient on that day and see who the winner is. I know you didn't ask but this year I AM THE WINNER!!! Hard to believe at 53 I can run faster than my 33 year old and my 30 year old! My daughter and I are 563 miles apart - we started a walking challenge to see where we would meet in the middle - I'm betting that I'll probably go around 360 miles to her 200. It's a lot of fun. There are team challenges like run for your favorite major league baseball team, your favorite type of music, your state, etc.
