Let's Get Fit Together!

Recommended Posts

I haven't run a 5k since but I have run outside and its slightly easier. I used to HATE running when I first started and I just did it so me and husband would have something to do together, now I love it so that makes it easier too. But for some reason I can't run on the treadmill at all so kudos to u for that.

I used to get major shin splits. Do toe taps. They help to strength ur chins. Just tap ur toes quickly like 100x on each side, once a day or more if u can stand it, it helps.

Oh and one more question, did you get shin splints when you first started running outdoors?

I have asthma so I have breathing problems too, as a matter of fact the day I was running this 5k i was starting to have an asthma attack b4 the race began. I hurt everyday, i'm sore all the time but I work through it. Something has to twig in ur brain to make u want to do these things, and a lot of ppl do. I don't like thinking i'm exceptional because I don't want ppl to think they have to b something special in order to do these things, anyone can do it.

At work, we have a lot of overweight people (sendentary, govt office job), I can ask 30 people and none would consider running a 5k as a possibility in their current condition.

 

After 37lbs shed, I can say I'd be able to run/walk a 5k because I do it every day on the treadmill at 7-8% incline.  I know I would not be able to run its entirety but I know I'd be able to complete it without having a heart attack or faint from lack of oxygen.  I'm 60% there, another 30+/- lbs and I'll reach my ideal weight and size once more.

Why are you in constant pain, Hezzie? I would just like to say, I can fit my goal jeans. The pair I was trying to get into when I started my new regime. Sucks that I don't really like the cut. They are size 32s (12). I've just bought 2 other pairs of size 12 jeans and they fit well! Can't wait to have them to be too big for me :)

So.. a while ago someone called that I wouldn't use my treadmill. Congratulations, you were right. icon_redface.gif

 

I really need to do something, I weighed myself and I'm at about 175.. which is the absolute heaviest I've ever been in my entire life. Fortunately, I can still wear size 12s though (just bought a couple new pairs of 12s which don't give me muffin top; I'm 5'9.5").

 

I really need to do something about this (I think all the weight has gone to my chin, lol). I don't know if they're being nice, but when I've talked to people about my weight (and struggle) they say I don't look that big (my boyfriend seemed surprised that I weigh that much).. but all I see in the mirror is a blob. I weighed ~135 a few years ago, and while I don't really want to go that low (I do, but I need to be more realistic), I do need to lose some weight.

 

 

SO. I need your motivation tricks and tips.

At the weight I need to be (150lbs) I'd be around size 8-9. That is another 30lbs to go.  Initially, my goal was to lose 60lbs but I've lost 37 and realize I can reach another 30 by next June, hopefully.

I love that you're pacing yourself. So many people talk about how fast you can lose weight, and I think about how unpractical that is. It's great that you're able to set such achievable goals. 

 

So I decided that I'm going to postpone my 5k until I'm more comfortable running outdoors. Instead of doing my 5k, I'm going to do a hike tomorrow morning :) I'm pretty excited!

I don't ever wanna gain it back.  I also don't want a bunch of flabby skin either which comes from rapid weight loss.  I used to be athletic, I know what I needed to do.  I just had to do it.  I want muscle tone and a healthy body, not skin, bone and fat.  Muscle tone is what's going to keep burning calories even when I'm not exercising.

 

You should give the 5k a try.  Walk it if you have to.  At least you'd know what its like.

I just want to say, I'm down 39lbs since June 1st, 2012. I've just bought my first pairs of size 11 jeans, a size I've not seen in a couple of years. Size 16 to size 11...Size 8 is getting closer.

I'm glad that I am seeing results because it's really hard to keep working out so diligently every night altho I have skipped a few days (5-6 days since June 1) but not consecutively.  I don't have a photo of 218lbs but then again who wants to see that.  Here's 178lbs and I'll have something to compare 150lbs to hopefully before my next birthday in May :)

Whew, it has been awhile since I posted here!

 

I moved to Japan and it was a little bit of a rough transition. I was initially really worried about such a huge change in diet and activity but it turns out that there was really nothing to e worried about at all! Almost a blessing in disguise. 

 

I use a bike to get everywhere here. I think that has been the biggest change in my fitness level. I was exercising before I came, but biking everywhere took it to the next level. It was a little hard at first, but now I'm a professional. Saving money and burning fat at the same time!

 

I am so much more active here in general... I log more steps and my stair climbing is insane. I don't know if I was just lazy at home or what, but I rarely used the stairs. Here I climb at least 15 flights a day! 

 

It is all paying off too... I've been here a month and a half and I'm down 11 pounds. 

 

Another good thing is that the school I'm at provides a really healthy lunch and snack during the day. The food here is mostly healthy, with a lot of vegetables/fish and little meat, so I eat a lot of low calorie food. I think I'm fuller because of that... I can eat more.

 

I'm kind of dreading going back home! 

 

In total, I've lost 43 pounds, with 47 more to go! It feels like forever, but it feels good to be almost halfway done... I'm like a whole other person.

43lbs? That is totally awesome!  I know how much hard work that means because I also lost 42lbs so far with 22lbs to go.  Congratulations! I'm sure you feel great! Keep up the great work and I hope it is a new way of life for you when you return home.

I'm from the United States. :)

 

I'm currently 177 now and I feel great about myself, even though I still have a lot of weight to go. divadoll, I think our weight loss journey is very similar :)

We are traveling similar journeys, that's for sure. I'm 5'6" and 175lbs. I wear a size 10/11 right now. My goal weight is 153lbs for now. I calculated my body fat % and this is appropriate for my frame size. Have you checked out a body fat calculator, maybe you are closer to your goal than you think. My body shape has changed. I have gone from an A cup when I weighed 118lbs to a DD right now. I would like to keep the DD and therefore would account for the extra weight. I would be considered normal weight on a bmi scale at 154lbs so I think I have a reasonable target. I will adjust when I reach that land mark, hopefully by March :) I do have a hell of a lot of fun shopping. My size has gone from size 16, XL to 10/11, M/L. Gotta love it! I'm starting to look like my old self...the one that turned heads and made jaws drop and cause traffic accidents. Maybe I'll get to be that way one more time :)
