Dieting

I just started a new diet last week-ish and it's going really well so far, I feel motivated and I feel like this time I'm really gonna stick with it! It's not really a diet per se but I am counting calories and exercising every day...hopefully I'll have lost some weight by the time school starts!

Does anyone else have weight loss/dieting goals for the new school year?

Wishing you the best of Luck Courtney! I think just watching your calories and drinking water is the the best way to loose weight!
I lost 20 kilos in about 8 months awhile ago just by watching my calories and trying to be more active! I also discovered Pilates is a great way to firm up after doing it for a month for the first time in my life I actually had a flat stomach!
Its winter here in Australia and lately I have been a bit slack with it and I've started to put a few kilos back on Happy
I'm glad i read your post this will inspire me to get back into it! I'd like to loose what I've put back on before summer is here!

Yes, the same is happening to me! I can just stay on point this time, randomly. I think it's because I have a larger goal in mind, which necessitates the workouts. ;)

It IS rather hard, however, to stay on a diet when, every time I sign in here, I see peanut butter whoopie pies. x.x

Haha yeah I agree.

I'm using this app to track my calories and basically I can eat anything I want as long as I work out enough...the only problem is motivating myself to work out haha. I might start jogging soon and force myself to get better at running, actually...

Jogging is enjoyable and easier than flat-out running; at least for me. Also, dance is my way of exercising. When you dance it doesn't feel like a workout, it feels like fun.
I'm trying to exercise and lose some weight, too. Its nice to know i'm not alone...

Yeah, I'm not really good at running and for some reason I don't count walking as a "workout" for some reason, so jogging I'm hoping will be a happy medium for me.

Haha nope you're not alone! I'm hoping to lose 7 - 10 pounds by the time school starts again, and maybe another 10 over the school year...

Ouch. Doesn't sound peachy. Hope you feel better!
I'm trying this idea where I make it a personal rule not to eat unless someone else is in the room. I just began, so we'll see how things turn out. ^.^

Ha, yeah, me too! I just count calories and work out. I started about 6 days ago and I already lost a pound! Either 6 or 16 more to go...

HAHAHA!!

This is funny. (not you, me) I tried the whole "exercise" thing. I dropped $50 bucks on a P90X workout video package and did it for a week. I felt WONDERFUL! I could even tell a difference in just the first week.

BUT

I skipped a day (as per directions) and haven't picked it up since. I have Zero willpower. Plus, it's too hot. As for dieting? I refuse. I'd die without pizza. Like, seriously.

Good luck. I don't think anyone is as lazy as me, so you should do fine. ;)
