  • Wedding: May 2012

I’ll start:

Starting weight: 230

Goal weight: 145 (yep, that’s 85 pounds!)

Exercise likes and dislikes: I like dancing, step classes and walking, HATE running and push-ups

Major food weaknesses: Chick-fil-A is the biggest I think! Also ice cream.

I’m trying to eat really healthy and up my exercise. I’ve been slacking the past few weeks, but I need to get back on track. I bought a wedding dress that is quite a bit too small for me (but I love it and it’s discontinued), so my plan is to fit into it by about this time next year. Hopefully I can do it!

Hello, I would like to join! 

  • what is your starting weight?
  •  my starting weight is 220.6. I’ve lost about 20 lbs so far since getting engaged in November using a combination of weight watchers and trying to reduce my intake of bad carbs.

  •  my ultimate goal weight is about 150. My short term goal is to hit 200 before going dress shopping this summer!

  • what are your favorite and least favorite forms of exercise?
  •  I like walking, (I’m currently training for the Breast Cancer 3 Day if anyone would like to donate, let me know!) the elliptical, and group activities like kickboxing and zumba. I’d love to become a runner someday but I’m not sure if it’s in the cards for me.

YAY SO EXCITING!!!

  • what is your starting weight?
  •  Well my starting weight a few weeks ago was 235. I am at 224.6 now.

    I lost 10 pounds by doing cardio 5 to 6 times a week for 20 to 40 minutes and I eat under 1600 calories a day.

  • what is your goal weight?
  •  My goal weight is 150 ( 86 to go).

  • what are your favorite and least favorite forms of exercise?
  •  I LOVE my zumba! Even my daughter joins in sometimes. I also like pilates just for the relaxation. I hate running. I am huge and seriously that shit hurts my ankles.

  • what is your major weakness when it comes to food? chocolate, grease?
  • I think my biggest weakness is fried foods. I love me some fries! But I guess all in moderation can be ok.

    By The Way… Mr Tranquility is also doing this! I am so proud of him. He has lost 7 pounds!!!!

    OOoooooo I wanna play. I am NOT shy and I need the inspiration/motivation!!! Although, trying on my dress yesterday gave me extra inspiration… there was back fat. Frown So I am officially on a diet from now until the wedding, and I’m starting couch 2 5K today!!! It’s a 9 week program and I have 11 weeks until the wedding… perfect!

    Starting weight: 173 pounds

    Goal: Hopefully 165? I have two months. We will see.

    Favorite form of exercise: The kind where I don’t know I’m doing it. Sports, hiking, swimming. 

    Least favorite type of exercise: The efficient kind. Running, in particular.

    Weaknesses: Sugar and pizza.  And I’m about to go to a meeting where they have both, free!  Boo! wish me luck… I’ll be visuallizing my back fat!!!!

    Oh dear, I am going to regret this, but in for a penny and all that: –

    Starting weight: 10 stone 1 pound, that’s like 141 pounds isn’t it?

    Like to be: 9 stone (or thereabouts), approx 126 pounds.

     

    I have been working like a horse the past few weeks, so too tired for me wii fit, and almost all food is my weakness. H2B is a chef, I was a lot slimmer before we met! lol

    I started trying to lose weight last year. My starting weight was 145. I just have a small amount left I’d like to lose, but still think it would be fun to play! The things I have already done to lose weight… hmmm… I gave up pop! I was really big into pepsi. Drank it every day. Now I never drink it. I also tried to slow down my fast food consumption, since that’s my biggest weakness..but It hasn’t worked out so well. So yea, pretty much just giving up pop helped me knock 15 lbs.

    what is your starting weight?

    130 lbs

    what is your goal weight?

    120-124 lbs. (i’d be happy in that range)

    what are your favorite and least favorite forms of exercise?

    I love sports… ringette, hockey, field hockey… but hate pretty much everything else. I like the idea of running, and was once a great runner, but lately have lost all motivation when I get out there.

    what is your major weakness when it comes to food? chocolate, grease?

    I love fast food! If I’m in a cranky mood, all Fiance needs to do to calm me down is to buy me a cheeseburger or a big mac. sad, but true.
