Wow, I guess I'm in by myself... Okay, I'm set to try to lose a pound/week... I'm off and running... wish me luck..
So you spent all the time typing that and no one is with you, I am unable to run, can't walk far but I am going to try my hardest to loose 1 lb a week, I have about 3 1/2 Stone to loose
Yep, I spent all that time typing and you're the first taker I've had... welcome aboard.
I don't know our age, but for some of us, running isn't all it's cracked up to be, anyway. It's very high impact and can be hard on the feet, ankle and leg bones. My "off and running" was a figure of speech...
Walking is far better for us and we don't have to walk very far or very fast for it have an impact on our weight... We don't even have to do it all at once every day. We can walk 10 minutes at a time 2-3 times/day if we want to.
Have you ever tried yoga? I try to work a little of that in every day, as well. You can check out YouTube for lots of videos for how-tos and it's really kind of fun... When I first started doing it, I felt like a clumsy oaf, but it didn't take long to start getting the hang of it and the more you do, the better you get...
Anyway, I guess we're in this together... so keep posting so I know you're still with me. Good luck.
I'll be in the weight lose challenge with you.
i walked outside for a mile yesterday.
I walked outside for a mile yesterday to launch my New Year. Sounds like a good program you've started!
Yay, I'm glad to see we've got more coming in... Welcome Elpis, Kathy and DAVacik... I'm so happy I didn't end up in this all by myself...
DAVacik - I walk about 2.5 miles most days... I've been doing that for a while and my body is getting used to it, now, so it's time to either increase or add something else to my routine. Maybe I'll add something else... a little strength training to build muscles in the upper body, as well. Yep, sounds good to me!!
So we know DAVacik is walking, what about everyone else?
I want to join!!!! I need a weight loss buddy
Thanks for having this weight loss challenge! Great idea. Okay -- I'm in, too!

Hey, welcome aboard... we're all weight loss buddies here, so we can work on this together.
I don't know about everyone else, but as I said in my original post I've been struggling with my weight for several years and I've finally started making some progress, so I'm ready to do it this year...
Any time you want to talk about what you're doing or get tips, motivation or anything else, just post and we'll try to help you out.
Hi Cheryl... glad you joined us... now you're stuck with losing a pound a week, just like we are... lol
Good luck to everyone...
Hi, I would love to share my weight loss journey with you. I have dieted in the past and lost 5st in 2000 and 2 st 2 years ago. I find it difficult maintaining my weight so would appreciate any advice. Thank you so much x
Welcome aboard... we're all in for losing 1 pound/week... easy right? Well, maybe not so much... lol
Be sure to look for the weigh in thread on Sunday morning, where we keep track of our progress.
Just to be sure... has everyone logged their starting weight? Whether you're keeping track of if, here on the weight tracker or in your own notebook or just on a sheet of paper someplace. You'll need to keep track so you know where you start and where you end up....

I'm in! I've been on a bunch of new meds and hospital visits that have added 25 lbs to my frame. For the past three months I've been on the WW diet and managed to lose 15 lbs. Now I just need friends to help me lose the other 10 lbs. Thanks for starting this community.
Hi, am I too late to join? I'm 74 and have an arthritic hip which curtails my activities. I need to lose 28 lbs. to ease my walking. I have a reasonable idea of healthy eating but my big problem is portion control. I need friends to keep me on the straight and narrow. I also have a problem with flexibility. Has anyone any ideas from improvement? Thanks.
Welcome and congratulations on the 15 lb loss... you've just made some new friends to help you lose the rest... don't forget to check the Sunday weigh in each week to record your progress.
Here's a link to the weigh in I posted on Sunday for this week:
I post a new weigh in every Sunday... be sure to look for it.
Welcome... No one is ever too late to join. I've struggled with my weight for a few years and am just now beginning to start losing... I'm happy to help in any way I can.
I do have some ideas on how to help with portion control, as well as exercise to help with flexibility.
Let's keep this going
Forgot to tell you to be sure to watch for the Sunday weigh in, as well... the link is above for this week's weigh in, but there will be a new on on Sunday.
