I would be into this. I’m also 5’4″ and our goal weight is the same althoguh I’m a couple pounds heavier than you (139). Im also training for a 5K later this month. Have you checked out the Couch-to-5K program? It’s amazing! Im also currently doing Beachbody’s INSANITY workout program. It’s a 60 day cardio program and really kicks my ass but I’m excited to see results. I haven’t yet (I’m on day 13 or something now) but I also havent been following the eating plan the way I should be.

I am a mom to an almost two year old daughter. I work PT as a waitress but am currently waiting to go to a job interview for sometihng that could turn into a career (writing).

I would like to join.

 

I am 5’5 and 138 and would really like to get under 130. 

 

I started eating clean (no sugar, refined flours or perservatives) which means small meals 6 times a day and protein with every meal, its defintily helped loss some puffyness but its not really chaning the scale.

 

I do hot yoga 3-5 times a week  (bikram and powerflower)  and do notice a huge difference in my body when I go consistently.

 

But man this last 8 lbs does not want to leave.

 

Good luck all

This rocks. Mostly because, you ladies on here are all about my size with my goal.  Sweetness.

I’m 5’4″ and I hover around 130/133/135.  I teach full time and do my best to get to the gym 5 days a week, but honestly, with an ON YOUR FEET job, I’m pooped at the end of the day. πŸ™

Wedding is aways away, but I am planning to do a boudoir shoot areound December (I know…just in time to eat a lot…) so I’m setting a goal of 120 by December 15.

I’m just going to set small goals for this week. Starting tomorrow, I will:

*Not drink soda (even though ALL I drink is diet) until Friday.

*Work out Saturday, Sunday, and AT LEAST 4 of the 5 workday evenings.

*Eat ONE piece of candy at work a day instead of FOUR. Ha! πŸ™‚

We shall see.  Maybe just THAT will make a difference! WE CAN DO IT, LADIES!

I’ll join!

I’m 5’4 and weighed 121 at my wedding. I gained 8 pounds since and have been fluctuating between 125-129 for months now. I don’t want to lose 10 pounds, but I liked best at around 122, so let’s say, a 7pounds goal.

Before the wedding, I took a mix of green tea extracts and CLA, which helped with the last pounds, but you’re not supposed to take those for too long; and I am planning to get pregnant in the next months/year, so I don’t want to have crap in my system.

I am currently on week 5 of the P90x. BUT, as I was always very active, it is not through training that I will achieve my goal. I have to be extra careful with my diet.

The culprits? I’d say too much popcorn and big portions. Also, I am always watching carbs (gluten intolerent, so I don’t eat much) but lately I have been eating lots of pasta from the gluten free section and I suspect that cutting back a bit will help.

I just got back from a trip in Spain and France, and the food was really fatty compared to what I’m used to. Maybe getting back to my regular diet will bring me close to normal, we’ll see!

So, I start today at 129. I’ll check in next week! Good luck ladies!

I guess I’ll join since Workout Buddies is losing people left and right Cry.

I’m 5’5″ and I’m usually around 130.  I was in great shape for the wedding, toned and fit (though about the same weight).  Since the wedding, I’m noticing that I have a bit of a tummy pooch again and my thighs seem to be bigger than ever.

I work full time and I’m taking 2 graduate classes to get my MBA so I don’t have a lot of free time.  Some nights I have to go out and grab food before my classes so it’s tough to eat healthy.

I just started doing the 30 Day Shred this past week, have only done it once so far though!

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy:  Workout buddies is getting smaller!  Sad πŸ™

I would like to join this as well!  I am 5’4′ and fluctuate between 140 and 144 lbs at the present.  I am actually down about 10 lbs from last year at this time, and I would like to get down to 130-135 lbs (or less!) by the end of the year.  Then I will worry about maintaining that!

I work full time and am in 2 classes this semester – working towards a Masters of Engineering.  I just feel so lazy – no excuses anymore!  I am working on improving some of my eating habits, but I really need to get back into the habit of working out.  Not that I don’t, but I am inconsistent.  If I start working out and schedule it into my days, I think I will have more success.  My problem area is my stomach!  I would like to tone up my arms, upper back, and legs as well….but quite honestly, if I could tone up and flatten my stomach, I wouldn’t care so much about the other areas!  I wouldn’t mind losing a bit of weight off my boobs as well (if I lose weight in my boobs, I know I am losing weight! haha).

Of course, it is great to have a bunch of friends you are accountable to as well – so don’t let me slack anymore!

@dance:Try to get a hold of Mari Winsor Pilates 20 minutes abs workout to flatten your stomach. I have worked for this video consistently years ago and it did wonders. It created a strong basis that I only have to maintain/improve by varying my workouts…

For me, it’s the butt and thighs… I was super happy before the wedding to buy a certain size of pants, but I feel them tight now. I don’t want to go up a size!

@egb: Oh I know what you mean!  I don’t want to go up a size either.  My jeans are a bit tight when I put them on but I just bought some new work pants from Express and they fit really well (except for seeing my saddlebags ick).

I’m in! I’ve been telling myself all year I’m going to lose about 10lbs.  I’m 5′ 2″ and usually hoover around 130…before starting college I was always tiny, like 110lbs, and it’s not that I want to get back to that point exactly, but I want to be much closer than I am now!

I keep starting things, eating better, exercising, etc. but I get discouraged because I don’t see immediate results…I need someone to hold me accountable, which I beg my Fiance to do, but he doesn’t eat the greatest, so he’s not the best weight loss buddy.  Maybe you girls can do better! I need to stop being lazy!

Good day. πŸ™‚ No soda. ONE piece of candy despite much temptation. A good run and weightlifting.

Tomorrow, Sunday, will be the challenge.

Have a good night!

I did my second day of the 30 Day Shred.  I’m not doing it every day because I don’t have time or the energy!  I feel less tired than I did the first time but still couldn’t make it through all the cardio without a break because of my asthma.

I’ll join! Ultimately I’d like to lose close to 20 pounds, but 10 would get me back into my happy weight range. πŸ™‚

I’m a waiting bee and I’m hoping to get back into a good weight range before Boyfriend or Best Friend asks a very important question. πŸ˜‰
