Past history

Spoiler

Started at NF 2 years ago.  love it here.  So much positive support. I am 46 years old and started my journey here at 225 lbs.  I was always thin and active as a child, a teenager and in my 20's.  I can blame my weight issues on numerous things but I won't.  I have lost 25 pounds here.  I took off about 3 months from the boards to regroup.  Some family illness issues, a custody fight to get custody of my step sone which didn't rule in our favor, and just a general shitty mood kept me away and I don't like to spread negativity.  I have gotten out of my funk and need to continue,my weight loss journey here where I am supported and loved.  During my hiatus I only gained about 5 pounds back with no exercise what so ever.  This is proof that I have really changed my eating.  I am 80/20 Paleo, stay away from gluten and only have sugar in moderation on special occasions where I usually make from scratch. I cook 95% of my meals and stay away from preservatives.  I really enjoy cooking.  I also enjoy a little wine while I cook.  I have been with my hubby for 11 years and have two step kids ages 13 and 16.  I am a true Scorpio and have a devilish since of humor.  I love the outdoors.  If there is anything you want to know about me just ask!

 

 

 

I am am going to WAR with my weight.  It will be defeated.  Overall goal is 2 pounds per week but I don't obsess with the scale.  I also win by feeling better, clothes being looser and inches being lost.   I am looking at this as a 4 week challenge with this week being a prep week.

 

 

Workout-. This is the hardest for me.  I have arthritis in both hips and sciatica from walking funny because of the arthritis.  I need to lose weight to help with this and I need to exercise to lose weight but the pain keeps me from exercising.  i don't like it as an excuse but I need to proceed carefully and if I can just do a little more each day it will help.  This time around I am goaling myself 30 minutes of exercise 6 days per week.  I have a mix of things I can do here at the house that will envolve some cardio and some strength.  This will be ever evolving as challenges go on and I hope to enroll in water aerobics soon.

 

24pts available.  A-C grading. +3 STR and +3 STA 

 

Accountability.  I have a good handle on what I eat but I tend to eat too much.  Also what works for me in weightloss mode is to limit carbs.  To hold myself accountable I will utilize MFP.  I need to do some math and look at total calories and carbs and will probably adjust weekly.  I will hash this out and post goals at the begining of each week.  Main thing here is to log everything.  I am also going to post food porn at least one meal a day here.

 

28pts available.  A-C grading +2 WIS and +1 CHA

 

Reach 9,000 steps daily and do 300 body weight exercises each week.  I average about 7,000 now so just a few more.  With the weather turning nice this should not be an issue.  My Fitbit is great and is a motivator.  The body weight exercises are in addition to the workouts.  I can break these up through out the day and this has worked for me in the past.  I will pick an exercise to focus on each week.  Squats, lunges, push ups will be used the most but suggestions are welcome.

 

Graded pass/fail.  +1 STA

 

Simple and straight forward but works for me.  I really need to focus on exercise to loose weight.  Don't get me wrong diet is uber important but I have a pretty good handle on that except for portions.  I would also like to kick the pesky diet soda habit I got back into and also do some pampering of myself weekly but I will address these things in my daily battle log.  I want,this challenges focus to be getting back to exercising.  

 

Of course there will be MUSIC TRIVIA every morning at least during the weekdays.  Smut is always appreciated as is suggestions and comments.  I need some motivation from my peeps!  Push me! Pull my hair, whatever has to be done to get me 20 pounds lighter and I think that exercise will be much easier.

Hey! You're back! So fantastic. Sorry to hear it was a rough few months. However, it's great to see you back on NF. I haven't been doing such a great job with my challenges lately either. A tough few months with working out due to some physical therapy needs. But I'm here and still positive. Will let you know when my new challenge is up.

An acronym challenge. This is so you. OK, and RES too. But you're like, the same person, so it's still you. Good to have you back, we did indeed miss you! Not that I need reasons like smut jokes and music trivia to follow, but I shall. Reading your W goal, might I suggest considering something more yoga/mobility oriented?

Glad to have you here!  Thanks for the suggestion.  I will incorporate yoga/mobility but I need to push myself to see the weightloss so I can do more.  Make sense?  I still do stretches each morning before exercise I just don't want to be lazy and,count,that as my exercise.  I have a pretty good idea what I can handle and can modify things as to not hurt myself.

From 1976 this tune is so on point for this thread today.

Title and artist please.

 

 

Guess who just got back today?
Those wild-eyed boys that had been away
Haven't changed, haven't much to say
But man, I still think those cats are great

Ah, what a great song to start the challenge!

It's my theme song today. I can just imagine us walking down the block, black leather jackets, jeans and keds or boots, Outsiders tough.

 

Welcome back to the fold.

I wasn't going to post, you guys all seem to know one another and I was planning on silent stalkage and just following you. 

Didn't last long :D

I noticed I'd spammed the entire forum with replies and you were the only person I hadn't said hello to, so I can't not say hello.

That'd be rude.

I hope you don't mind me stalking you, though what with the music stuff, I may not remain silent :D

No need to remain silent here....and how can we effectively corrupt you if you only lurk? ;)

Definitely don't remain silent!  The more the merrier!  Stalk if you will but this is a safe place for all to express themselves.  ( SGFS that does not mean expose themselves)
