Anybody interested in a little competition? Teams. Points for healthy habits. Incentives (of some kind)... I need a kick in the very large part of me that seems to follow me around! I can organize somethin' somethin'... Just a thought.
I'm in !!!
Happy Digi Scrap'n ;-)
We'll see if we can cook up something... either way, we'll still be here to challenge each other!
Oooh - what's in it? I like competition ;)
I am probably neglecting housework so I can be here... My Gallery
Well !!! I'm on the wrong track already
Still haven't hit the gym and eating wise, let's just say that it's not easy with a DH who is as big as a tooth-pic and can eat for 10 without putting an ounce on !!!

I just joined Weight Watchers and in 2 weeks I'm down 5 lbs. I'm so excited! I have worked on picking up my activity little by little. The biggest thing for me is just keeping track of everything I eat. Sure makes me aware of how much I snack with my kids and while on the computer!
I'm in this for the long haul - I have a lot of weight to lose - so anything to help with the motivation is always welcome!
that was and is the hardest part for me... for the most part I eat pretty well, still eat too big of proportions!!! But my hubby has a very high caloric diet to keep his muscle mass... ugh... soooooooooooooooo needless to say when he gets home from work at almost 8:30 p.m. he is putting in a Digiorno pizza and filling the house with that smell and asking if I would like a slice.... even if you are not "really" hungry your mind sure can fool you into thinking you are hungry when someone is eating around you like that ... hours after you ate dinner...
But for the gym I don't have trouble staying motivated.. I think it is because of the classes I take.. they make me look forward to going , but before I started taking the classes I would find excuses not to go..Babysitter is not a problem because they have daycare there.. but I suggest maybe trying a class or have a friend go with you so you both are accountable to the other if you don't go... I take zumba 3 times a week and then hit weights for a 1/2 hour after.. and the other two days I do 30 minutes of weights and 20 to 30 minutes of stair master or elliptical ! At first I was discouraged because my weight was not going down.. but I knew I was doing something because all my clothes were fitting better I started doing measurements and found that I was gaining muscle mass... things that were sqeezable were no long soft and mushy but muscle now... and finally when I started zumba I lost 7 lbs... I have more to go don't get me wrong but.. at least it is a start.. I think I would do alot better if I didn't drink the things I drink.. two cups of coffee every morning with plenty of sugar and countless amounts of southern sweet tea throughout the day..... ugh.......................
