Not sure why, but even though there was a new post in this thread...it was showing there was NOT. Maybe it is because it doesn't like too many pages. I noticed that it did that before...so, I am going to start a new thread. Look for it titled Weight Loss Buddies 2012 second quarter.

Nancy:


Congratulations on the happy weigh in!  Enjoy your gardening.  It is still too cold here to work in the yard.  Soon I will be out there scratching around! Have a good rest of the week!

Hi Everyone:


Where are all the weight loss buddies these days?


I don't really have much to report because I didn't weigh in this morning.  I can tell you that I had a couple of really good weeks as far as following my meal plan.  Easter held few temptations :^)  I have continued to swim every morning but have had limited number of evenings available to get on the treadmilll.  My BG readings have all been great. 


How is everyone else doing?

No loss this week, but I know why. Ate out three times, and had to exercise off the extra fat ingested, as well as the extra sodium.


Next couple of weeks will be stressful for me. Will try not to eat my stress!! Then, of course, is Easter...and, yes, I have a ham planned. Will have salads, and green beans, and good stuff...but, I do plan on indulging in the ham.

Good morning, I am excited. I purchased a new scale yesterday. It is 21/2 pounds less than my old scale. More in line with my doctors office. So I am pretty happy. So I will have to see how I do for the next week. Nancy





Love it!!!

Sarah, try and focus on little things, like I ate a great salad with lunch instead of French fries. These little accomplishments to help us reach our goals. Weight loss can be a very slow but an obtainable process. Nancy

I'm discouraged about weight loss.  I took my doctors advice and bought a stationary bike for Christmas.  I have been riding it 20 minutes a day since then and instead of losing weight, I have actually gained 3 pounds.


I got the bike because walking is hard for me but I am still able to pedal a bike.  I'm 67 and have been diabetic since my early 20's (I was not overweight then or at anytime earlier in my life).  I have not changed my eating habits since riding the bike, if anything I have tried to lower my calorie intake.




You might need to try tweaking your 20 minute routine to get a better burn.


Try this....pedal normally for 5 minutes. Then, for the next ten minutes, alternate with normal pedaling for 30 seconds, and then speed up for 30 seconds...then, increase the tension if you can for three minutes, and cool down with two minutes. See how this helps.


Also, try going to www.MyFitnessPal.com and log in what you eat each day, and see how you stack up with calories, fat, carbs, and sodium. Sometimes, too much sodium can make you retain weight...By logging your meals, you might be able to find some areas that you haven't noticed before... You can also log in your exercise, and it will give you an idea about how many calories you are burning. A moderate setting on a stationary bike burns about 170 calories. In order to lose weight, you have to burn about 500 calories a day more than you need! So, if you are burning 170 on the bike,  then you will need to decrease about 230 calories a day from your amount you ate before you started to exercise.


It is a numbers game when losing...The program I suggested above is FREE and will help you to manage those numbers. It also has FREE apps for Android phones, as well as for iPhones, and iPads. I love the camera feature which allows you to scan the label of a food, and it instantly adds the food and ALL its nutritional values in...so easy. You can also use the recipe feature, and the saved food/meals to be able to quickly enter foods/meals you use a lot.


I hope these hints help.
