    I vote that there isn't a time limit and the finish line is when we reach our goals.

    Been there, done that. But it took 2 years and 14,000 miles for me to lose 20 pounds

    I wouldn't mind hearing about the bike tour, but this probably isn't the thread. I've done some bike tours and had a blast.

    I couldn't have said it better. I changed my diet (that is, the foods I choose to eat) for health reasons, and the weight loss was a beneficial side effect. Now, I'm maintaining a healthy weight for my height and age.

    I wish you success not only in reaching your short-term goal, but in the long-term one in reaching and sustaining a healthy weight.

    Yes, yes!!!

    I see much better results with weight training, than just cardio. Weight training really helps to firm up fast, thus giving me even more encouragement!

    Re: Anyone want to join me in a weightloss goal?

    ok.. so at lunch time I was all into this weight loss thing.. then I go to Costco after work. Im starving at this time so I buy a hot dog, I love their hot dogs.

    Then I get home to find my bf had cooked dinner. I dont want to hurt his feelings so I eat dinner.

    I have just done my workout twice but I know its not enough to correct what I did tonight. I must rememeber never to go into a store hungry.

    Re: Anyone want to join me in a weightloss goal?

    I'm basically copying and pasting what I wrote down in a weight loss thread a couple of weeks ago:

    This is my diet plan:

    breakfast - raisin bran (or any high fiber, whole grain cereal)
    snack (about 2 hours later) - apple, or any fruit
    lunch - salad + green tea
    snack (about 2 hours later) - banana, or any fruit
    dinner - whatever's for dinner

    Basically the key is to eat food more spaced out and in smaller portions. Also, replacing fatty, sugary snacks with fruits and vegetables or anything healthy is a great lifestyle change that will help in losing weight.

    The key is lifestyle changes. My mom tried the south beach diet, and it worked, but she ended up putting the weight back on. this is why fad diets are usually not recommended.

    Of course, exercise is great too! If you have an annual pass, a good stroll through the Disney Parks is also great exercise!


    And the reason why weight lifting is also good for you is because muscle mass drives weight loss. The more muscle mass you have, the easier it is to burn calories.

    Yes and no, banana. Muscle weighs more than fat, but it HELPS to burn fat.



    Also, your regimin...are you ready to stick to that for the rest of your life?

    whoopsie, that's what I meant. just the wrong words thrown in there.

    and no, not for the rest of my life. but basically till I lose the weight I need to and then continue on with a healthy balanced diet (ie whole grains, more fruits, less crap, etc).
