  • I am so sore and have been for a couple of days. I believe it is because I have been slacking with my workouts. I am going to do better this week.
  • Woke up stiff & sore. I think it's because of the oil & noodles in the chicken spaghetti last night. I knew I shouldn't have eaten it but I REALLY needed to get some sleep so, I ate what I knew would do the trick and I'm paying the price today.
  • Trying not to get overly frustrated finding non-GMO foods in this backward little town we live in. It is sad when they think the ultimate cuisine is a deep fried double cheese burger. The bright side is, a couple of stores in town have started carrying non-GMO and organic foods we simply have to search and search and search through the terrible stuff to find it.
  • So, I've not been very good at keeping this up to date. I've been working out (could do more) trying to teach the better half about Non-GMO & Organic food, trying to eat better and reading the Unstoppable book.
  • Day 2
    Got up, did my 10 min. Gazelle workout ( too sore from yesterday to do more) and spent the majority of my day watching various DDP videos until I could muster up enough gumption to do my DDPY exercises. I made it through 5 min. of Chair Force 1 before I had to stop. The good news is that my glucose level is going down for some reason.
  • This is so I can keep track of what I'm doing and my progress. For others reading this, I do NOT have a smartphone or tablet I'm a bit old school with my computer & video camera.
    Day 1
    I got up, worked out on my Gazelle Edge for 12 min (up from 5 min. a week ago), took a shower, rested and set up video camera, got dressed, rested and tested video camera, took my 6 strength & flexibility pics and a pushup video, rested, changed into more comfortable clothing, rested trying to get less sore, made and had dinner then had to go to bed to deal with the pain and exhaustion. After my 3 hour nap, I uploaded my pics & video and here we are at the end of the day.

  • Nothing is expected of you. You are here because you want to achieve something. Whatever helps you is what you need to do. We have very little in common - circumstance-wise - but I know exactly what it is like to not leave the house because you can't stand the way you look. I lost a lot of years of my life because I was so worried about being viewed as a heffalump ( love the Pooh - and it's a good description of what I felt like).

    The pictures are not meant to be punitive, but I hated taking them all the same. You don't have to wear a swimsuit. I wore leggings and a tight tank - you can still see all my fat flaws, but I didn't feel quite as vulnerable. I honestly didn't want to view them, let alone upload them. What changed my mind? I think looking at everyone else having the courage to post their photos was important. It was good for me to see that I wasn't the only one who was struggling, wasn't the only one with a big belly, or had a bad hair day. What really moved me, though, was seeing the follow up pictures. Even people who don't appear to have lost a large amount of weight yet are posting phenomenal pictures of their increased flexibility and mobility. It was amazing to look back at their original photos and see that progress. I am one month in as of Wednesday and need to take my first set of follow up photos. I'm so glad I have the original photos to use as a comparison. Please take the pictures, for yourself, even if you don't post them.

    I'm here to chat if you want support, but don't feel like posting in the public forums. I've sent you a friend request and you can send a private message anytime you like.
  • I don't know what is expected here. I do not do well putting myself or information about myself online. The more advanced and intrusive the tech gets, the more of a Luddite I become. I checked out the 6 strength & flexibility pic requirements and after reading the clothing suggestions, I'm sitting here trying not to cry. I haven't owned a bathing suit in years because I do not know where to buy suits for heffalumps & woozles (my feelings & words about me, not aimed at anyone else). I haven't left the house in almost a year mostly because I cannot stand the way I look.
  • Thank you Robert McLearren for the wonderful and informative welcome.
