Subject: new year=new me.
Date Posted: January/04/2010 at 3:53am
I started a diet and exercise program recently. And, well, I was just wondering if anyone else is currently trying to lose weight, or just become a healthier person.

I've cut out soda and fast food and I only eat sweets in moderation, if any at all. I do have a gym membership, but I had to put my account on hold until the end of February, so I have been doing the Wii Active. That seriously kicks my ass. Starting later today I'm going to do the first day of the 30 day Challenge on the Wii Active. Currently I weigh 216.8 and I want to get down to 180 by march. I'm actually in a weight loss competition on you tube, I could win $500. If you want to know more about the contest, please message me.

Me! I used to be at 110 and now I'm at 130(not healthy for a 5'0" person). I'm cutting out soda except for unsual occasions(i.e. going out to eat, birthday parties, etc.) and fast food once a month.
 
Also, I'm kicking it with Dance Dance Revolution 1-3 hours a day. :]

I'm also trying to lose some weight. I'm heavier than I'd like (180 lbs) and I'm 5'7". I've cut out pop and am trying to minimalize my fast food intake. I'm searching for a good yoga class in my area, and I'm going to give the Wii fit another go. My aunt and I are supposed to start Weight Watchers this month too. I'm thinking of starting a little journal with everything I eat and how much i excercise, and setting little goals for my self. My first goal is to loose ten pounds by the first week in February. Its encouraging to know there are more people on this site going through the same thing!

I am having my own personal pilates tutor, i have started the exercise regime as recommended by my physio, i walk to school as often as i can aaaaand i am making the whole family healthy meals again (i got lazy for a while).  If that doesn't help with the arthritis and aid a bit of weight loss i will be most upset.

I'm trying to lose a stone and a half by April, so i'm doing the wii fit and joining the gym, however I don't really know how to make changes to my diet as I don't tend to like healthy foods..at all. Any tips?

Pretzels and walnuts instead of junk when i was bigger (YES possible) got me into a formal dress 2 times smaller when i was 18. Only had a month and a bit. Also oat so simple is filling. Also have your three meals and enjoy them. You want crisps? have a crisp sammich for lunch but not as a snack just dont eat any other junk unless you NEED to then have above mentioned snacks... Im going back onto this.

I'm trying to lose weight also, i don't set goals for it, because that only increases the pressure and then i tend to give up.
 
Don't really have a plan :P just continue hooping every day and stop eating unhealthy crap all the time.

Does it count that I am still continuing the same goals I've been achieving for last year?

-Lost approx. 17 pounds and kept it off.
- Do not drink soda often
- Quit smoking ( going on 3 months!)
And for THIS year I'd like to find a diet/exercise routine that actually works for me and I can keep up.
Wish me luck.

Well I cant lose too much more weight or my doctor will be concerned that I am starving baby, but in early pregnancy I stopped drinking soda and high frutous corn syrup and lost 20 pounds in one month. no excersize or anything. I am slowly gaining that back but want to go walking when it stops raining and doing some easy excersizing so I can have a better body post pregnancy than I did pre :) lol.  or atleast get a better body with little excersizing.
getting food stamps now so it will be easier and cheaper to eat healthy :)
ooh and since pregnancy I quit smoking and I plan on sticking with that after pregnancy :D
 
my new years resolution though is to keep more organized and clean. I dont have a dirty place, just messy and cluttered. I plan on throwing a LOT of shit away. :) if I cant do that then my baby is fucked when it gets old enough to crawl around! >.<

I've never really been one for having a steady weight.

I was about 130lbs when I was in college, which was about 5 or 6 years ago now then i dropped to about 90lbs and my weight still yo yo's all over the place.

Over the last year though I have managed to keep my weight between 100 and 115lbs which is JUST within the ideal weight for my height.

I have never been one to watch what I eat in particular, but I don't think I eat that badly to be honest, grated I don't have my 5 a day very often, but I have a darn sight more than others =P
My diet has had to change a few times for various reasons over the years too, to try figure out allergies and/or things that irritated my digestive system when I ended up having to see the doctor about my weight being all over the place (nothing ever came of it).

I don't want to loose weight, it'd be unhealthy for me to do so but I really need a healthier diet so I'm going to attempt to learn how to cook properly, rather than just have ready meals/sauces or chippys.

I would like to lose some weight but I don't need to, I'm not overweight just a bit on the chubby side.

It's going to be hard tho because I have to save on food a bit, my boyfriend doesn't have a steady income anymore so it'll be difficult to afford my daily ton of fresh veggies that I usually eat.... it'll have to be cheap sandwiches for lunch rather than avocados and organic tomatoes and shoots.

So, my goal is not to be more healthy or lose weight, but to save money. Unfortunately, those two are quite opposed to each other :-(

A few months ago I tried exercising and changing my diet, not to lose weight, but to be healthy. Several types of cancer run in my family and I need to help myself as much as I can while it's still early. However now that its 2010 I'm really going to kick into gear. I need to stop eating dessert every day. I wish you the best of luck and I hope you meet your goal !

I didn't make my resolution to lose weight... even though I am trying to... because it isn't concrete enough.

Instead, I made resolutions to work out at least 4 times a week, and to eat more vegetables (and less sweets!)

Good luck to all of us! :-D

Well, with all these nutrition related goals... let me know (PM me) if anyone has a specific question. Whilst my own eating habits are far from healthy, i'm actually quite knowledgeable about nutrition.

I'm going to try to be more outgoing and meet new people even if it makes me feel uncomfortable.

The being healthier/loosing weight thing is a constant battle, not a resolution for me.

I've lost 15 pounds since October. I weigh 120 now and I'm 5'6". I still want to lose 5 more, even though I'm borderline underweight as it is, lol. I went vegetarian and started exercising a lot more. I run 3.5 miles a day and do some yoga maybe 3x a week and belly dance 2x a week. I already disliked most unhealthy food and meat, so it was pretty easy for me.

I wish all of you the best of luck =]. It's been one week since I started my diet/exercise and I feel so much better about myself. I'm down 2 lbs now. I've been drinking a lot of water, cut out fast food and have been eating more vegetables and whole grains. I've been avoiding high fructose corn syrup and I've only had a couple sweets. I got a start on the 30-day challenge on the EA Sports Active for the Wii and I've been using the stair climber. I don't feel so sore anymore after I work out, and I feel energized when I wake up now, it's amazing =].

I understand not having much money. But why not try cutting down on other expenses. I mean what is more important then keeping a healthy body?

Problem is that most of my money goes to food.
The most expensive foods are fresh vegetables, and good quality fish and meat. And I usually eat those foods most.
I'll just have to suck it up and eat more bread and potatoes (cheap but boring and not as nutricious).
I don't really spend much unnecessary money on anything else.

I've started drinking meal replacement shakes every morning.
They're only 163 cal, but it's something, right? :)
It's difficult, but getting easier. Generally i don't eat until i get home from work at around 6pm. I'm kind of testing my body out a bit and taking it slow.

This year I'm losing another 20 pounds.
The only other "resolution" would be to save up money so I can get a place away from my insane family.

I'm going to really commit to losing some weight. I need to lose about a stone, but also need to really tone up, so i'll judge it more by aesthetics than the scales. I'm doing the wii fit, weights and outdoor exercise at the weekends, biking, walking etc.

My reward will be some really good ink - i'm saving up the money i don't spend on takeaways and crap to pay for it. So, yeah i really REALLY want this!

My son has a sticker reward chart for his teeth, I have one for my diet! It involves portion control, three meals a day and allows for treats and alcohol consumption (which I've descreasd). I devised it myself cause I find calorie counting too much of a pain in the arse and I am using common sense in what I am eatng. It will work as it keeps me motivated and helps me see at a glance what I've eaten all week. It's really a simplified version of the weight watchers points system or similar to a food diary.

I don't own scales as I don't like weighing myself. I went up a dress size last year from my usual 12 to 14 (UK sizes by the way!). When I fit in my size 12 jeans again, I'll be happy. Not bothered about getting any thinner as I would never maintain a smaller size.

Edit my other resolutions... well I got new red hair! And finally split for good with my horror of an ex on Friday! It was a ten month head fuck situation and although he has hurt me very profoundly, I'm determined to move on from him.

I just realised that as well as being healther in 2010 I want to be happier. I spent far too much of 2009 being sad, and I do not want 2010 to be the same. I am starting to plan for what will make me a happier Keiran and part of that is some more piercings and some serious tattooing :D
