  1. I was on NerdFitness 3-4 years ago. Doing challenges. Doing pushups, for crying out loud. Then I had a pacemaker put in, and I kind of fell to pieces. It took 6 weeks of rest and physical restrictions to recover from the actual (minor) surgery. The depressive funk I slid into lasted longer than that. I just stopped caring. During the time I had been here on NF, I had lost 40 pounds. I kept them off for awhile. But then, I suddenly found myself hungry. I mean hungry. All. The. Time. Some of the pounds found their way back to me, slowly. Twelve of them, to be exact. I kept thinking I
  2. I've been a total lazy bum for over a year now. It's time to get back into shape. Here's what I'm already doing: * intermittent fasting (basically I skip breakfast most mornings) * summer courses at the community college * flute gig in August Here's what needs to (or I'd like to) happen: * a Whole30 (I'm starting this next week with my family - we have Hello Fresh arriving this week and it's too late to cancel and we're not about to throw all that delicious food away) * Walk a 5k every day. I don't care how long it takes. Eventually I want to be
  3. I don't really know what to say, or how to tell my tale, but here's a short, little story of how Calera failed. I thought I was on a roll, crushing through workouts and missions with determination and being able to do push-ups for the first time in my life. Everything was going so well, until I failed a will save: "I'll do it tomorrow." Like a level 4 bard wandering into the Underdark, muttering "I'll do it tomorrow," I put off workouts and missions for weeks. Suddenly trapped within Lolth's web, I realised it was the end. Before I knew it, my healthy progress was out t
  4. Hi, my name is Stoney and I’m a serial quitter and shiny-thing chaser. This is my umpteenth respawn here in the forums but fuck it, why not try again? I play roller derby* for my local team in a southern western Australian country town and while that’s been great for my general physical and mental health, I’ve hit a bit of a plateau. And I’m a total perfectionist so I always want to be the best at everything I do. Yay self improvement! That does mean however that I get unmotivated much too quickly and get distracted trying the Cool New Thing™️ t
  5. Hi -- Still trying to figure out a way to stick with this, but at least this time I did the workout first before logging on. I was diagnosed with lupus in February, and everyone seems to realize that it was there for quite a while but no one put the pieces together until the blood test turned positive. What sent me back to NFA this time was being put on a toxic med to manage pain, and my pain being treated but the side effects being horrific. What's left? My old standbys of diet and exercise, but what can I do without causing flares or injuring myself more? Really, w
  6. So it has been a while since I have posted anything here or really visited this site in about a year or so. I am not entirely sure where I left off but I know I had just gotten a new job and was getting into a new schedule. Life happens and I didn’t keep up my visits to the site, but I did my best to keep myself on the path to becoming healthier. There was some back peddling involved I will admit. I believe I have kept steady at least, but have not really made much progress. After a year or so I thought I would have been much farther along than I am now. A few things
  7. [Pre-Challenge: Complete Mindset Module of the Academy] “OMG Hi! Long time listener - first time caller” Yeeeah… not really. My last 4-week challenge was in April of 2016. A lil over 2 years ago. I’ve hit some snags.. A lot of snags. I’ll spare you all the TL;DR wall-o-text. Long story short, 2016 was a terrible year in a lot of ways… and I thought what I learned and endured through 2016 would lead me to a great 2017. It didn’t. I’m starting from square one now. Story time will happen throughout my journey, sorta like a narrator to put all the pieces togethe
  8. Helloooo everyone. Take Four Hundred and Ninety Four..... I'm ElvenEngineer, and I am really bad about dropping out of challenges *hangs head* But that's all right! Because gamers don't die, they respawn! This challenge will end the day after my next powerlifting meet! Which I may drop out of! But I will still test lifts even if I don't compete that day! So in the meantime: Goal 1: Eat breakfast EVERY DAY Goal 2: Track SOMETHING in MFP EVERY DAY Goal 3: Do something creative EVERY DAY And ab
  9. I'm going to be honest; I don't really like the fact that this isn't my first respawn post. But hey, if they didn't expect you to make mistakes, they wouldn't have programmed in a respawning mechanic, right? So, here I am again, starting at the basics of level 1. I still haven't quite found what works for me, but I have found things I love to do and want to get better at. Me and my preferences have changed since I've joined this site, and something I thought would never happen actually happened: I've mellowed out. Shock! But one thing hasn't changed; how much I love this place and its philosop
  10. Hello all! First challenge ever, woohoo! Rebel for over one year, but sadly, the forces of Injury and Sloth held me captive (they are old allies). I overcame Injury just to find myself knee-deep in Sloth, with my hair pulled by Resignation and my getaway car crushed by a 40th birthday cake. ENOUGH! Just today I decided to try out the Forums, and saw the 4 week challenge begins today - eep! So, hastily assembled post and goals: I am 40, and I thought the problems of my 20's and 30's would have worked themselves out by now. Spoiler: they didn't. Ergo
  11. Hi all, Wow, I haven’t been on here in a few years. I’m so glad this community is still here. I am looking forward to being active again. Last time I was here, I had good intentions of making changes in my life but really didn’t follow through. I’m starting at ground zero now and going to give it my all. Respawn point::::273.8 lbs Last month I met with a weight loss doctor. I got to a point that I am considering WL surgery. The consult scared me. I ended up seeing the doctor’s counterpart for medical WL (non-surgical) and she gave me some goals. I mee
  12. So I've been out of the game for a few months now. I lost 20#s from July to October last year, and held pretty steady through all the food holidays, but in the new year, took a critical hit early on (was in a car accident the last week of December, had some stiffness, but a week later could not move my neck). So I stopped working out. Then February hit, I was still in recovery mode with my neck, but that's usually a pretty depressing month for me. I expected this and tried to counteract myself by talking to friends early, trying to reestablish connections so I didn't isolate myself, but
  13. Hi fellow Nerds. I was a huge fan of these forums a few years back. Then I got more involved with the academy and the facebook groups. Then I went to NF Camp 2016 and it was amazing!! Then it all went downhill. I gave up tracking and quit facebook and the groups. Little by little I've gained weight to higher than I've ever been. So! I restarted MFP! I'm going to try hanging around the forums. I'm moving in a month, so I will focus on food and tracking now. After the move, I will find some fitness classes. Wish me luck!
  14. Greetings all! It’s been a while… So, today I’m respawning back to NF after a several-year hiatus. I made it through two consecutive only-just-barely-successful challenges back in the day, but then I got swept into the maelstrom of life and pretty much fell off the self-improvement wagon. Currently I am still in the same place in the same storm, soldiering along in the bloody trenches of scholarship and fighting desperately to make progress on my doctoral dissertation, but my body is starting to revolt against the fact that I’ve basically been using it to do nothing but carry my br
  15. Hey guys, I'm back on the wagon here, after finding a different path to wander for the past coupla months. It's great to be here again! I've got a couple of new goals - long term and for this challenge. But one really cool thing that happened was a letter I found when I got back home. It's probably best if you just read it for yourself : Meraki Director of E.R.A. ㅡ Meraki Redacted, Redacted, interest@era.com 13 March 2018
  16. Recap! I am down 14# ! at the end of the challenge- week 4 you can see i started to fall off... lose steam... When I stepped on the Scale and saw '-14 lb' I freaked out a bit and couldn't believe it... I had been avoiding the scale if there was not change i would feel the work was not worth it- it has been a huge boost! Plan: The next Challenge: I have found a good audiobook helps be inactive be fun and not a chore. I finished Without Remorse (Jack Ryan Universe #1) Starring John kelly. https://goo.gl/TcWzSj The next book is Patriot Games (Jac
  17. Back from a hiatus that was both from giving up and too much going on. (Rambly update in my Daily Battle Log.) Anyway -- I'm back - again! -- and I think I'm going to respawn everything, including over on my Academy profile. I just haven't been active in so long. On the bright side, having (re-)joined WeightWatchers, their new Freestyle program brings a lot of nutrition goals in line with the NF Levels. Other than nonfat yogurt being 0 Points, I think most of the 0-Point food list is at this point totally paleo. Anyway, my goal right now is to start getting things ba
  18. Introduction: Hi all, I'm just your average MunckinLion (also Lil'Lion or just Lion) and this is my first challenge--after about two years I mean. I've lurked and munched away at snacks for far too long; I'm the laziest Lil'Lion in all the pride lands. I'm in college right now doing a Literature major ( so obviously I kind of like reading) but aside from that, I enjoy swimming and soccer.I'm trying to expand my interests! My ADHD brain makes me love trying new things, but makes me not so great at sticking with them. Main Quest: Lose 20lbs by June. I'm kinda doing a lot of f
  19. A wild Infinicca appears! Greetings and salutations, friends. My name is Infinicca, regenerating/respawning after several years off-site. I was formerly here under "Nicca", and was sort of a lurker/occasional contributor. In the time since, I've been up and down again. I had a bad illness which hospitalized me a couple of years ago, lost some weight, and then gained it all back and then some because I could eat again. I work from home and am also studying from home for my *gulp* law degree, and recently I've realized that I'm into the danger zone... I'm often tired, don't eat well,
  20. Ugh why do I keep falling off the bloody wagon?! Backstory - 125kgs (275lbs) in February 2013. 72kgs (160lbs) in November 2014. Engaged in October 2015, moved in with hubby to be. By September 2016 I was 90kg (198lbs). Got married in October 2017. Jumped on the scales this week after years of neglect and am back up to 102kgs (225lbs). I dont want want to get to 72kgs again, as I was severely restricting my eating and training twice a day five days a week. Looking for a happy mid point. Am comfortable and content between 78 a
  21. Hi there! I haven't been back on NF in a while. Mainly because I didn't think I needed the support on here to lose weight anymore. But boy was I wrong! I actually lost more weight being on here than I ever have by myself. So how have things been? Well I lost a lot of weight after my baby girl was born. But being a new mother proved to be a lot harder than I was expecting. Add that to being only married one year haha, and figuring out what being a wife meant. So all in all, my hormones had been bad before and after giving birth they ended up being worse and my weight sh
  22. Hi all, I have largely fallen off the wagon lately. I haven't been getting enough exercise, I've been eating rather too many sweets, and I'm wasting money on cabs more than strictly necessary. I'm not in bad shape, but I'm trending in a direction I shouldn't. Sticking to the basics this time, because I clearly need to relearn/rebuild them. Goal 1 - Do not be lazy (X/5) Walk to work unless the weather is awful or my lungs are in bad shape. Goal 2 - Limit sweets. (X/7) Do not eat anything not on my acceptable sweets list and eat those only in small portions.
  23. My Hero is Jack Ryan- I met him in Hunt for Red October. (yes I met him in the movie not the book) I did a little bit of the Tutorial quests and found out his story started in Without Remorse. A huge reason I am 'ranger' Jack is because the audio book is great to listen to while being active. I have done Huge- 'Smarter' Goals in the the past and 'burned out' To Kiss it: My '1st' challenge is 'Establish Habit' This will be accomplished by 'doing something for a month' Over this last week something has become 'Food log' with a stretch go
  24. Well... the good news is, I know why I was getting so sick and passing out when I worked out! My resting heart rate without medication is between 140-200 bpm, and when I would exercise, it could easily go over 400 bpm with very little effort on my part. I am medicated now, but it's still going to be a long haul, and I have to take it easier than I have in the past. It's been 5 years since I have been on this forum with any regularity. In the last two years, I have been in 5 car accidents, had 4 surgeries, went from one medication daily to 13+ medications a day, and I've gained 50-l
  25. Truthfully, It's been a more than a couple years since I've been on this website, so "soft reset" might be too generous of a term. Still, I'm the same person with the same issues---now I'm just working with different stats. I was at a big university, but struggling with my mental health a lot, so I'm at a community college for now. I've lost a lot of the healthy habits I built, and being at back at home now has made me less motivated in my physical health. Right now I'm planning to focus most on water intake and calorie tracking using MFP. I'm hoping this time around I can work o
