I'l Take That Bet

I have a friendly bet going on, the bet is take off 30 pounds in 6 months, starting June 1st. At the end of this bet I'll get what amounts to about a $300-400 prize so thats about 10 bucks per pound.

I need something to motivate me, I can get discouraged pretty easily, especially if I don't see the scale moving down as fast as I want it to, I have a tendency to give up.
While I'm by no means considered fat I can definitely stand to loose those 30-40 pounds.

I've always been the immediate gratification type, I realize thats a serious personality flaw. Sometimes the best things are worth working for, sometimes I should have just stayed with things a bit longer instead of giving up, sometimes if I could I'd kick my own ass for not either waiting or working for something just a little bit longer, things would have turned out so much differently.

I'm going to try to remember that, as the saying goes patience is a virtue.

Go on South Beach and stick with it. You'll win the bet. I am living proof.

I am trying to figure out where you are hiding those 30 - 40 pounds. You appear rather slim in your photo on your profile.....

Heartnsoul- it helps if your rather tall for a female, you don't notice those extra pounds as easily.

Heaven hey hun ,
Female of cpl posting as always even though it shows the hubby.
I agree with Mr Frumpy Cardio is one main keys as is eating right CArdio 3 times at least a week and if any strength training only do it about twice a week. If ya lived closer hun I would be happy to go work out with ya ride bikes whatever when ya had time. Doing things like this is never fun alone.

Dont get discouraged stay with it and think positive. Good Luck will be right here rootin for ya I know you can Do it!!

Good Evening
For the past three weeks or so I am determined to lower my cholesterol and get into better shape. Every morning for breakfast I drink a low fat shake, Atkins, slim fast or such. I look at the fat grams per weight. Then for lunch I eat fruit all different kinds of fruit and believe me you can get tired of one fruit very fast. When I go into work I take the stairs up 10 floors everyday. I am very winded when I get to the 10th floor. Everyday when I leave I take the stairs down 10 floors. At night I have a good meal not big but good. I also have cut out all the cookies and cakes after 7:00pm. I do setups and pushups at night I am working my way up slowly. I have lowered my cholesterol 40 points and lost 5 pounds already.

Best of luck to you keep us up to date

Well I hope I can be a little motivating. I have lost 125 pounds and 14 inches in my waist. I did it by seeing a nutritionist and counting calories. You need to look up your height/weight ratio on-line. There will be an expected calorie daily intake for the height weight you desire. Any number below that should lose weight. Try to avoid fad diets - people tend to be unsuccessful with them. Exercise is also very helpful (I run marathons now). Hope I was a little motivating.
