I'm 29 and on a mission to re-lose everything I've re-gained! I've been a member on here for years- you can see my weight journal. I started in December 2011 at 260 pounds. I proudly lost 70 pounds within 9 months by calorie counting and a 4x weekly work out schedule. Over the last few years, maintenance was put on the back burner and I regained. Now, I'm ready to shed it all again.

Height: 5'8"

Starting weight (as of 12/31/11): 260 pounds

The long term goal: Ultimately, I'd like to be 160.

The diet: No more than 1600 calories per day. Aim for average of 1250-1350 per day. No soda. 8 cups of water a day. No fast food!

The exercise: 4 days a week- Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursdays

Weighing: Weigh myself once a week, to not drive myself crazy with every little fluctuation. Just looking for a downward trend here.

Add me as a friend, message me, comment on my journals. Help keep me accountable! I'm open for everyone :)

weigh everyday

If you feel the need to weigh yourself less often because weighing daily makes you obsessed with the numbers on the scale and you judge yourself for it, or you are afraid that might happen, or you do weigh yourself obsessively, the problem is not the frequency with which you weigh yourself, and cannot be remedied by changing that frequency. The problem is obsession, and it needs to be addressed to get a healthy relationship with food and eating.

I used incorrect wording. I judge myself when I see the daily fluctuations that happen with anybody's weight and get too number-focused instead of health-focused. This is why I weigh weekly and not daily.

weigh everyday
Wow, sounds like I'm in the minority. The moment I start weighing everyday I get too number-focused and obsessive. I've always stayed on track better by doing a weekly weigh in.

Adding Protein to Oatmeal
Try adding Chia Seeds! It will add not only protein, but also calcium, antioxidents, fiber and healthy omega fats.

What's everyone's fitness routine?
I LOVE the elliptical- I'm an addict to the intervals Smile It's how I lost the bulk of my weight thus far.

Right now, though, my workouts are:
Sunday/Monday/Wednesday/Friday: 35 minutes elliptical on high intervals, 30 minutes strength and weight training
Tuesday/Thursdays: Kettle Bell workouts from home
Saturday: REST!
