Flori - Congrats on losing anyway while you were on vacation and celebrating! It is important to do that every once in a while. Good luck with giving up soda and adding weightlifting. Those are both good and sustainable lifestyle changes.

Work has taken over my life the last two days. I think I need to find a workout that I have to pay for so I am more committed.

So far I have been doing really good sticking to my points, so I hope the scale reflects that on Sunday... Going to add working out either next week or the week after... I don't want to try to do to much at once and get frustrated LOL

I've been shopping workout programs lately, and they have me thinking about what I actually like to do. Several big popular programs have actually come out and said that (especially in the beginning) consistency with workouts matters much more than intensity or even duration. You just have to do something, then work up to doing something almost every day.
Val - is there something that you really like to do that can be turned into a workout? If you like to do something (walking, dancing, swimming, yoga, etc.), then it doesn't feel like work to do it. I agree that settling into your diet first is a smart move, but this might be time to start thinking about how you WANT to add some exercise when you get ready. I find that I can't stick with things that I don't enjoy.
Congrats on sticking to your points!! It might take a few weeks to get adjusted to how many you actually need. I was actually eating too many the first week, then too few for the next couple of weeks. I got equilibrated after about a month, and the weight came off much more consistently and faster.

Unless sleeping, or playing or the computer could be exerise... then nope LOL I love swimming, but living in NJ and not having an indoor pool makes that a no go for the winter unless I join the YMCA again. I have a treadmill and an elipitcal in the bedroom that face the tv, so I will just put on a show I like and do it. I used to do it for 90 minutes a night, it is just getting back into the habit.

One of my friends has a treadmill desk. It is possible to work out while playing (or working) on the computer. I love the TV a little too much, so I can use that as a pretty reliable incentive to work out. I agree that getting back into the habit is the hard part.
My gym and a few others around here are running great specials right now since the fall is so slow. If you were considering joining one with a pool, this might be the cheapest time.

I hoping that the tv will be motivation, I used to only watch tv when I was working out, but now that i can sit in bed and watch tv it is an issue LOL I need to just get the area cleaned up tomorrow and the clothes off the machines so we can start using them. I know I will feel better and have more energy once I start doing it, it is just getting the energy to get started!

I agree, just making up your mind to work out is the hardest part. I can normally get going into a pretty good pattern, but if I ever break from my routine, I fail. Case in point? Hubs and I breezed through the first round of P90X earlier this year, then he got sick and couldn't work out. I didn't want to move on without him so I didn't work out either. Fast forward to 9 months later and I'm the same weight I was when we started.

Val - Congrats on the 2 lbs!!! What are you doing for exercise today?

Me - 144.8 today, down 0.4 lbs?
I've been stress eating, so I need to get a better handle on my snacks. I squeezed in 5 good workouts in this week. I was trying for six, so I will try again this week. I hit the gym once for 45 minutes on the cross trainer, did a one hour yoga class, one hard spin class, one hour+ run, and a good recovery bike ride yesterday. My exercise today will consist of running sprints away from my boss and juggling ;)

Hope you are all well and losing weight!
