lol 

I’m in! I need to get healthier myself. It’s kind of a loaded topic for me, but I am all down for helping others with what I know and could use some help myself!

I am totally in. I have been making a concious effort to eat healthier and drink more water, but it doesn’t always happen. Especially lately with the wedding, school, and starting a new job I find myself making more and more bad eating choices. I also need to start excrising.

I’ll join, I’m all ready with the workout buddies, but I think when it comes to being healthier it never hurts to have as much support as possible. Because it’s not easy to be healthy.

@MsPanda: Don’t feel bad, I consumed an entire thing of pull-apart jalepno cheese bread in two days (one of those days it was all I ate, aside from some plain greek yogurt). But on a good note, been to the gym every single day of the week aside from Monday when I didn’t want to eat anything but that strange sinfully good bread >.< never again is it coming in this house. I told the person responsible for buying it to never get it again, or at least have it where I can see it and am having moments of weakness.

I’m in.

Just joined Lose It.com yesterday (it’s free) and am trying to net about 1,200 cals per day (calories eaten – exercise).

Went over on Tuesday (mostly due to alcohol) but did 50 min on the elliptical yesterday and Day 1 of the 30 day shred today.

1,200 is fairly restrictive but it’s my “goal” for each day and I will not beat myself up if I have a 1,500 calorie day every once and a while.

It’s really helped me to see the calories of EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth and even though I *know* what I should and shouldn’t eat, it really drives it home (even more than WW did).

I want to do this the right way and be healthy for life, not just drop 20ish lbs for the wedding only to gain it back and more after.

Here are my short term goals.This will be perfect, because I am taking a physical education class for my credential right now and I need to come up with a health plan.

1. Eat 1300 calories daily with one splurge day at 1500 calories. Track on loseit.com. Keep a food journal.

2. Walk 30 minutes every day. 25 push-ups and sit-ups every day.

3. Eat 5-7 veggies every day.

4. Drink 7-10 glasses of water every day.

I will be gone for the weekend. Going camping with Fiance for his B-Day will be back on Wednesday and will be starting my plan then. Hopefully I can get some hiking in while in the mountains.

We have a biggest loser thread here on the bee that is also around the same lines.

But I would def love to join this group too. I have healthily (is that a word?) lost 13 pounds since April 1st by eating healthy (not dieting because I plan to do this for the rest of my life) and exercise.

I would love to have as much support and give as much support as possible.

I am on myfitnesspal my user name is otranquility if anyone wants to add me!
