Motivation Get back out there! Jan 13 2015
14:52 (UTC)

Holy crap, that DEFINITELY spoke to me! I was overweight most of my life, then lost it all and maintained for awhile. In the last 2 years, I've gained 40lbs...ok, maybe 50lbs. 

Let's do this! :)

Click on our username and it'll take you to our home page. Then you click 'support' next to our username. I'll do that to you!

So any ideas for a challenge?

We could do a calorie intake one, a working out days per week one.....


The last group that I did this w/, we all set our own goals since everyone was at different levels.

Yea, I like both of those ideas!

I used to have a picture of me that I HATED on the fridge. It was my 'ah ha' moment picture. I should put it back up!

5feet: When you 'support' someone, you become their friend....basically like on FB. So when you post journals, you show up on their friends journal feed, and vise versa.
When I am being good, I journal a lot and will post what I have eaten and my workouts.

Kat, see? lol It's hard not to do good things or stay away from bad things when you read about everyone else! hehe

It helps me because if I know I am going to post my food and whether or not I worked out it sort of stays in the back of my head and I am more likely to do well!

Yea I need help with accountability too! It's easier to let myself down than to say on here that I haven't been doing diddly squat! lol

When I lost a lot of weight this site really helped by friending people and doing small challenges! Sometimes just reading other people's journals and hearing how good they are doing or supporting them makes it easier for me.


That's why I'm trolling the motivation threads today. I need to get motivated!

Want to do a challenge? Most of the people I used to do challenges with aren't really on here anymore. We used to do things like committing to making it to the gym x days a week, or keeping cals at a certain point x days a week. It wasn't really competitive, more to help keep each other accountable.

Congrats! Keep it up and don't do what I did and get lazy and gain 20 back.

I'm with you! Lately I get 1 or 2 days in a row at the gym and eating well, and then BAM. Back to doing NOTHING! It's very frustrating that I cannot keep my motivation up.


The sad thing is, I was at my goal weight a year ago, and have gained 20ish lbs back since. I lost over 40lbs, and let everything go.

We just have to keep remembering WHY we are trying and do our best every day. lol like not having McD's for breakfast like I did today! :)

Take walks, go on hikes. Try new activities in your a climbing wall or something like that!

You can always volunteer together, like Habitat for Humanity or soup kitchens!

You can join a coed softball league or something like that!

The Lounge Do you think fighting in a relationship is healthy? May 04 2012

I think it depends on the people and how they deal with things! In relationships, there is no right or wrong, and it will never be the same from one relationship to the next.

As long as any issues are worked out and you are both happy, then there is no reason to be fighting!

Weight Loss Concerns over calorie intake Jun 22 2011
20:44 (UTC)

I wouldn't go down to 1200! It's hard to find the right balance of how much of a deficit to have, but you don't want too big of a deficit.

750 is good, just remember once you get closer to maintenance weight, you'll have to have less and less of a deficit.

But congrats! 7lbs is great !

The Lounge resentments Jun 22 2011
20:39 (UTC)

Hmm...I've been cheated on, I've been backstabbed. I've been cheated on while being backstabbed by a friend (long story). I have stayed friends with just about everyone.


That's not to say I've not held resentment, but life's too short. We all make mistakes.

However, I am no longer friends with any of those people, nor with the cheater. Although I was able to stay friends and forgive, it's impossible to forget. Which is fine, however sometimes people don't learn from their mistakes and dont become better people because of it.

At the end of the day I want to surround myself with people who I can trust, so that having to hold resentment against someone who 'wronged' me isn't even an issue!

Great job!

You are right, mini goals are easier (and nicer to check off when you pass them!)

You do get cheat days or meals right? Just try to plan around that. If you go out, have the meal but then that's it for the week!

Weight Loss Protein powders... Apr 22 2011
15:44 (UTC)

One of the cheapest is Body Fortress at WalMart. Taste is so-so as far as powders go. That's about 100 cals for 26gs of protein. I've tried EAS, Jillian Michaels, and Optimal Nutrition....they are all about the same!
