    Alright ladies, I am pathetic. After successfully losing 50 pounds last year, I have gained it all back plus 5 more pounds. I am now the heaviest I have ever been. I hate it . I am mad at myself. I have set a goal to improve myself by July 23rd (big family event). I need to be held accountable for this. I cannot tell my local family/friends because I do not find that motivating. So I am asking you to help. I will post on this thread every few days with how I am doing. While support is always welcome, if I do not post on this thread for 7 days, will you please send me a PM and KICK MY BUTT and ask what the heck I am doing!!!!

    Thank you.

    Report #1

    SUCCESS: I have successfully stopped drinking diet coke!!! It has been over a month since I last had any. (This was important because I was drinking about 30 glasses each day.)

    PROGRESS: I made (and kept) an appointment with a chiropracter who specializes in getting people back to "their old selves". He has an exercise specialist in his office and they are next to a fitness center.

    FAILS: I am still eating way too much food.


    1. Attend follow up appointment with chiropracter.
    2. Join the fitness center.
    3. Workout at least 60 minutes.
    4. Surface clean my house.
    5. Start garden.

    Goal 6: You will eat off smaller plates.

    It helps - really. Even if it is just psychological... it is harder to look at a half-empty plate.

    And no, we won't just PM you. We'll... send a posse after you on the watercooler or something... <grin>

    I agree the smaller plates help. I almost always eat off the smaller ones; it really does make me feel like I'm eating more. Sounds like you are off to a good start!

    I'm glad you started this because I need to hold myself accountable too! Enjoy the fitness club! I really would miss it if I didn't have a club to go to (thankfully mine is free) and I also would miss boot camp (not free and not through the club).

    Keep up the good work!!

    Good luck! You can crush up corn flakes to use for coating chicken, etc., when baking to give it that crunchy fried texture.

    I think a two-pound loss is marvellous -- keep it up! I wish I could do it too. I think I will try and join you guys, I just HAVE to lose some weight. Anyway, two pounds is great for starters, in my humble opinion.
    Love, Esther

    I did NOT eat a cupcake today!!! I did NOT eat two hot dogs today!!! I used CBT to convince myself that they weren't worth it!!!!

    I did have a candy bar (darn it)!!

    When I finish dinner, I will have eaten all of my fruits/veggies for the day!! (7 servings!!!)

    Two steps forward, one step back... not bad for trying to get over the "inertia" of start-up on a new regime again...
    Good going!

    Road trip completed! I met my goals of No Wheat, No Meat, No Pop. I think I ate a little too much. I did all my PT stretches so my doctor will be happy. I planning on gardening tomorrow so that will burn a lot of calories.

    OMG -- husband ordered PIZZA tonight!!!

    I actually did pretty good. I had 3 small square pieces of gluten free- veggie pizza and a salad with less than a tablespoon of dressing.

    You're doing an excellent job!! Way To Go on losing two lbs.!! It's OK to eat pizza. in my humble opinion, everything is OK in moderation. Besides, it was a veggie pizza and you had salad too.

    Thanks for giving me the kick I need to go put on my sneakers and get to that fitness room! SFR

    I did my first day at the gym -- just 30 minutes on the treadmill but that was after an hour of PT!
