    NEED TO LOSE TEN POUNDS

    I would be pleased to be ten pounds lighter. This goal was unattainable while I was drinking but, at least for a while, I have given it up. Anyone interested in joining me on our weight loss journey? I am not a yo-you dieter. I have never had the self control to give up wine before now and I seem to have turned a corner with this issue so I figure that without the great wine-weight burden, this might be my opportinity to actually kill two birds with one stone.. so to speak. So my plan is simple. Eat more liver friendly foods, fruit and veggies, drink tons of water and bounce for 1/2 hour a day on the trampoline. We just ate the last of the Christmas foods which I refused to waste. I made a care package for my 23 year old daughter consisting of doritos, corn chips, etc. and now it's time to do a grocery order.

    Come one come all. Checking in daily. I am 4' 11" and weigh 131. My goal is ten pounds and I hope to do it within 6 weeks or so.

    ANY SUGGESTIONS OR JOINERS !! Feeling good right now like I can actually accomplish to two niggling things in my life that stop me from feeling GREAT.

    NEED TO LOSE TEN POUNDS

    I'm with you Tipple & Chill, I too overindulged during the holidays. I have lost 14lbs since I stopped drinking and felt great but have put 4lbs on so plan to get it off by the end of January. I also need to get back into regular exercise and revisit my healthy eating - so day one for me.

    Dewdrop :h

    NEED TO LOSE TEN POUNDS

    Welcome gals. I have always carried my little ten pounds around with me. I am about to hit menopause and I know it gets harder to lose any weight after that so it's now or never. I am very lethargic on day 5 (yippeee!!) of not drinking and can't motivate myself to do much. I need to get on that mini-trampoline for a bit today.

    DewDrop, what was your poison of choice? I wonder if the weight falls off automatically when we stop drinking? 1/2 of a bottle of red daily (at least) must have SOME calories in it.

    NEED TO LOSE TEN POUNDS

    I would love to join you in weight lose. I lost 12lbs immediately when I quit drinking over a year ago. However the weight has crept back on so I need to lose 10. I am afraid I have let myself eat whatever I want as I don't want to relapse. (did in August) I find being full
    makes drinking less appealing. So I am in. And I never exercise I am terrrible.

    NEED TO LOSE TEN POUNDS

    Hi Sidney, I was born in raised in the Parkdale District of Toronto. Very rough then but nothing compared to now. When I was a kid in Toronto, all my teenage friends drank and smoked weed. Myself and my BF went to the same parties and had as much fun and we prided ourselves on not doing either. We really had a hoot. The life of the party. If I could do it as a vulnerable teenager I can do it now. Want that teenage body back too but I'll settle for a few less ripples and dimples... LOL..

    NEED TO LOSE TEN POUNDS

    I'm also trying hard to lose weight. I've been up and down like crazy this past year because of drinking, stopping, drinking again. I'm 5'8 and I'm up to 172 pounds. My goal weight is about 150-155 lbs. I walk 2 miles everyday and since I stopped drinking at the end of November I've cut down to about 1000-1100 calories a day, mostly fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately I haven't really been losing any weight, which is very frustrating to me. I don't know if my diet is too extreme or if I just need to have patience.

    Wow you know Parkdale. I know it well as well although I grew up in Scarboro I now live in the west end in South Etobicoke. Because of my job I know most neighbourhoods of Toronto.
    So how are we going to do this weight thing? I am gung ho to make a change. unfortunately I cannot give up wine as I already have. (makes the llbs drop off) I eat pretty healthy the problem is I have been craving sugar the last 6 months.

    NEED TO LOSE TEN POUNDS

    Hey all,

    Just wanted to wish you good luck on the weight loss. One thing I found really useful is keeping an online ffod and exercise journal. You can get then for free and it tells you the calories u need to eat daily to lose weight in your specified tine period. Also, it calculates how many calories you burn turn exercise to show how many additional calories you could have daily and still meet your goal weight. I lost nearly 15 lbs using one about two years ago...all in just over six weeks!

    Would love to join you but the addd pressure of losing weight and staying sober would probably kill me. Keep posting your progress!

    NEED TO LOSE TEN POUNDS

    I hear ya Cassia and I certainly respect that. I am jumping on the weight loss bandwagon only here on MWO. I am not dieting in the way one might think. I am eating tons of fruit and veggies and when at the restaurant trying to eat the delicious but not greasy food. Had Teriaki Chicken at the mall food court for lunch. I plan on eating MORE good foods and hopefully crowd out the bad. I figure with the lack of wine I will have a real head start. Today I jumped on the mini-trampoline for a while. I think being accountable is the way to go. Just listing foods here and exercise accomplished. At the grocery store I splurged on some pomegranate juice, pelligrino bubbly water, etc. Like to have a nice drink with that liver-lovin' lemon.

    Sidney when we left downtown Toronto, we moved to guess where: Etobicoke. The Eglington Martingrove area. There was a nice little subdivision in there behind the Willowridge Towers. We hated it being city-bred teenagers. We took a bus (had to walk for 20 minutes through waist high snow through a field to get to it in the winter), then a subway, then a streetcar to get to Parkdale Collegiate which we refused to leave when we moved. I guess we had stamina and you know what. That walk was UPHILL both ways... LOL
