Well, we talked about it and I am taking the bull by the horns (proverbally).<br><br>
I think that we should make our goals known and then have daily accounting of how we are doing for the day towards those goals. It could be as simple as "Eating more healthy" or "Lose 15 pounds"<br><br>

Accountability seems to be the only way things get done. I was on a thread through CR and we had weekly weigh-ins which were helpful.

I posted in the other thread that I have lost size in the waist but no weight yet. I measured and recorded my "dimensions" lol. My goal is to get to the target health size around my waist. I am not that far off. I also have weight loss goals but those have not budged all year.<br><br>
That said........... goal 1 is to lose 2 inches from my waist. Goal 2 is much harder- lose 20 pounds. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Current weight 215<br>
Goal weight 195

GOOD FOR YOU on the weight loss! I am 215 and want to go to 190ish. My diet sucks and I am a EXTREMELY picky eater so I am in trouble there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I'm in too. I will be horrified when I have to tell you what I eat all day. For example, I had a breakfast meeting today where I ate a cinnamon raisin bagel w/ cream cheese and a LARGE muffin. And cranberry juice.<br><br>
Since then, just water. The muffin was so huge I'm not even hungry for my usual 4 mid-morning snacks.<br><br>
Current weight - 148<br>
Goal weight - 143-145<br><br>
The real goal is to make better food choices and be healthier. The (hopeful) weight loss is an added bonus.<br><br>
Thanks for getting us started, <b>Tanya</b>!

Okay - so when I worked for Weight Watchers, the biggest rules were to weigh in once a week - same time, preferably similar clothing and to recognize that some people really can't do it alone - the group support thing.<br><br>
What kind of support are people most looking for - besides the accountability?

I'd love to join you all but I don't think it's reasonably possible for this to happen while I'm still training for the marathon. I burn way too much and thus, eat way too much. I'll be sure to pop in post-November tho ...just in time for the holidays. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Good luck!!!

OK, I think we need some general guidelines...<br>
1. You must state your goals.<br>
2. Weekly weigh in/measure in.<br>
3. Daily accountability for food intake.<br>
4. We are all on the same road, and will all have positive healthy support!

I definately need the eat healthier end of things so count me in! Thanks <b>T for</b> getting this rolling! So from a selfish point of view, can we include some healthy food ideas? I know being in a rut is my biggest downfall, it just about kills me! So I need some good ideas for things that will fuel my workouts! As for the number on my scale, well, that is between me and my doggie who insists on following me into the bathroom every time I am in there!!!

<span style="font-size:small;">Hi 30's. Are long time lurkers allowed in here? I've been following along with you since Feb 2006, and fully intended to come out of hiding. I completed C25K, OHR, and started HHST. But then I tore the meniscus in my right knee and had surgery last fall. Haven't ran since. I've tried, but the pain returns and I'm paranoid that I may have torn it again. But I've kept up with your daily antics and you have even inspired me to take up cycling. So I thought this new weight loss thread would be the perfect time to reveal myself. I read the daily 30s thread, but feel like an imposter since I don't run anymore! I'll even fill out <b>Trevor's</b> questionnaire if you want! So if you will accept a non-runner into the mix, I'll gladly be an athletic supporter a la <b>McTortle</b>. I even have a CR 30's shirt! Thanks <b>Katholeenie</b>! And <b>Moe</b>, if you ever need a walking partner, let me know! Granted I live in Indiana, but I would travel to be a part of the next 30 somethings gathering.</span><br><br><span style="font-size:small;">Thanks for allowing me to introduce myself.</span><br><br><span style="font-size:small;">Sherry</span><br><br><span style="font-size:small;">SW 190</span><br><span style="font-size:small;">CW 190</span><br><span style="font-size:small;">GW 150</span>

Lunch - Oriental Chicken Salad (mixed greens, approx on chicken br worth of meat, 2 TB of sesame dressing). three small slices of bread. Now working on afternoon coffee.<br><br>
I am somewhat with Maria, in that as I increase milage, I am ravenous. My milage is no where near hers, but I am on pace for 130 miles this month, and I have put on a few pounds.<br><br>
As far as #'s go, to each their own. Maybe a month ago, I would not have, but in order to be publically accountable, I felt I needed to put it out there. I have lost a bunch of weight, but I have a ways to go. And although I realize that BMI charts are flawed, for my height, even 170 would be considered overweight.
