Goal Weight:139.0 lb
following: doittoit's own diet
performance: losing 3.1 lb a week

I'm making a brand new start, again, with a stronger more determined push toward my ultimate weight and fitness goals. I plan to lose the extra weight in five pound increments; and as I reach each 5 pound target to celebrate joyfully and reward myself generously - but not with food! My longterm fitness goal is to train for and run my first marathon. I figure, having procrastinated into my "golden years", there's a better and better chance of winning my age division. (Tell me that's not looking at the glass half-full!) Once upon a time, when I was younger and in better shape I loved to run. I still love to run but it hasn't been so much fun with those extra pounds tagging along. So, my goal is to dump all my extra weight and have tons of fun eating well and running (literally and figuratively) towards my own personal finish line!

I'm happy to be on this weight-loss marathon with all of you here on FS. (I wish it was, but it's not a sprint, folks.) You are the most wonderful support group!

Lose (or loose) the overused words
I think I just might puke if I hear the word surreal one more time. It's all so surreal!

Thanks everyone for the input. Divided: I'm a skeptic and a 'bottom line' thinker by nature , so I appreciate your 'to the point' advice. I think I'll post those Jillian and Bob admonitions onto the tops of my Nikes. No damned excuses! I love that. BY THE WAY....YOUR PERSONAL SUCCESS IS AMAZINGLY INSPIRATIONAL TO THE REST OF US. YOU MUST HAVE STOPPED WITH THE EXCUSES A LONG WHILE BACK. THANKS FOR SHOWING US THE WAY, BY EXAMPLE!

Does anyone out there in Fatsecretland know if it's true, the claim that glutamine can help you lose weight more rapidly by lowering cortisol levels? Confused Any personal experiences? I'm considering whether I should take it and I'd love to hear from you. Thanks!

I have a new smoothie maker...any ideas?
I love Jamba Juice Smoothies and I've been able to make some pretty good ones at home. The key ingredients are: nonfat yogurt (plain is fine), frozen fruits (your choice), juice (apple always works), and most important? Sherbet! A handful of ice, blend everything and Voila! I also freeze bananas and add 1. 1/2 cup of each ingredient works well. Play with your favorite flavors and Enjoy, guilt-free.

Delete Exercise have the option to "increase" or "reduce" the amount of exercise. Reducing the amount of time will effectively delete it. (Example: You entered 1 hour of badmitton; reduce by 1 hour to delete it.) Hope that helps. I've found a few limitations on this site. Has anyone else noticed the amount of calories burned for treadmills, bicycles, etc. does not match up with those given on the gym equipment? Which one is accurate? And if you can manually enter your own info, does anyone know how to? Thanks.
