New Year, new me [Jan. 1st, 2005|10:47 pm]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |determined]

In the last few years I have really let myself go. I am overweight and out of shape and need to do something about that. Starting today.

As part of that, I will be using my journal as a guide to this and so will be making a "fitness filter." If you want to be on the filter, coment on this. As this will be a very personal and intimate set of entries, I reserve the right to be selective about who gets on the filter. And since it will probably involve a lot of whining, please don't feel that you need to volunteer to be on this filter - a lot of it will undoubtedly be boring and inane. But I know there are others on the same journey and I thought we might be aupport for each other.

Put me on. We can whine together. I'm fed up with being out of shape too. I wish you were closer. We could bitch AND exercise together. Trust me, the two go together.

You're in. Having you closer would be great.

I would love to participate, especially since I'm making the same resolution. I think it will help my motivation to see someone else posting about it.

don't be so negative young lady!! sure, we'll have the bad days, but I bet we have at LEAST an equal number of good ones.

For me, this isn't about six months or a year, this is about the rest of my life. I'm tired of feeling old before my time. I mean, sure, I'm about to turn 50 but, y'know what? On the inside, I still feel like I'm not even legal yet.

Now if ONLY I could locate someone in the mood for cradle robbing.

*giggles*

I want in.

It's my resolution, as well. That and to quit smoking. But one battle at a time, eh?

2005: The year of tiny asses (hopefully).

We don't know each other very long, but I'm interested in being on your fitness filter if you're comfortable putting me on it. I need to be taking this same journey again...have made progress in the past but have lost ground the last 6 months due to injury, life changes, etc.

I'd like to be a part of the filter.


Recent life events have really rocked my boat, making me more serious than ever about taking a similar journey as the one you describe above.


I'm thinkingf many of us are. Perhaps its even a community, waiting for someone (you) to spearhead?

At this point I'm not feeling like that is how I want to head, but it may be that after a couple weeks I will feel comfortable with it. It's not a bad idea - more personal than just joining a weight loss community where I don't really know anyone.

I'd be honored to be part of your fitness filter, if you are so inclined.
Thank you.

I'd be interested in being included. I'm also planning on a fitness binge, so perhaps you'll be an inspiration :)

I definitely want to be on that filter! I was where you are last summer, then went to take a cure in Germany, and have not only lost weight there, but almost as much weight since (August), total 33lbs - and I must still lose more than this again. I need to keep up the spirit to go on & shall also share anything you're interested in. (The cure was a two-week quasi-fast, 200 calories a day plus a lot of exercise, plus one week getting back slowly to 1,200 calories a day - and it went entirely against my instincts, since it's largely vegetarian and slow carbs. But it works, and is more tolerant of the odd indulgence than anything else I've done.)

If you don't mind, I'd like to be on that. I can't say that it will necessarily inspire me to get off my own butt (I am unbelievably stubborn about resisting motivation in any form). However, just watching other people take care of themselves makes it harder for me to ignore that I should be doing the same thing.

I knew there was a reason we get along! I'm the exact same way. The more I'm told to get in shape...the less likely I am to do it.

In my case, I get jealous as fuck when others succeed where I have failed. Heh.

Please put me on your filter. I need to walk down that road myself. I'm sick of generally feeling like crap and I'm not getting any younger. It feels better when you are not feeling alone.

Yes, please. MyJeff's Holiday gift to me is/will-be a subscription to a local yoga studio. I have seen nakedpix of self recently and been awakened with shock...
I know I need maximum health and happiness to continue to work with students, and besides, fitness makes me feel _and_ look better.

I will share my stories too. If you whine, we can give inspirational stories (I got myself out to walk three times this week and also got x amount of grading done!)

I may insist you post all your brags. Brags for every time you take the stairs instead of the elevator, every time you park in the way-back of the parking lot and walk in to the supermarket... you know, small victories. It's good and friendly to yourself to focus on those things.

Well I don't want to be on your fitness filter. But I did want to let you know that I know that you can and WILL do it ! My Mom has been over weight ever since I can remember, but in the past 7 months she has lost a lot of weight through dieting. She eats but, she avoids the Mc Donald, Wendy's and Burger Kings. She also uses a lot of mustard and eats Matzo crackers as snacks.

Her motivation was seeing my Grandmothers health problem. Diabetes, heart problems and more... But she lost a lot of weight and seems to be keeping it off. I'm proud of her ! Not that cared what she looked like, but she is happier and healther.

I'd wish you luck, but you don't need it.

I have bounced up and down several times in my life. I need to stop bouncing. Healthy living is my focus. And thanks!

Like others I'm on this plan. Being young I'd like to start early with the good health habits. I'd love to see how your doing. You'll most likely do better than I... so it'll be kick in the pants ot myself!
