I would love to have a friend that teaches. XD I'd love to take a class, but I'm not sure the group setting is for me. I'm easily demotivated. I think I work out better alone. But on the other hand, I need some help with new poses. :ponder: I saw a group in the park while I was running the other day. I'm still considering it.

I hope you continue it! It's a lot of finance very relaxing.
There's good ol' Mongoose. :Mongoose:

It is great! It's one of the many things I anticipate doing more often after I graduate and get a big boy job. XD In the group setting that is. I was fortunate enough to win a very nice yoga mat and block for free, so at this point, it's just the classes that I'm looking at. And there are several studios around here with a bunch of different deals.

Any recommendations for the home yoga sessions? Are there any online channels or youtubers you like to use?

By contrast, don't think I'll even go outside today. :p

This past week, I reached several significant milestones:

1) I've officially lost 100 lbs.!

2) I'm halfway to my goal of losing 200 lbs. (which was estimated to take 24 months, and its only been 6).

3) I'm under 300 lbs. for the first time in over a decade (official weight right now is 297)!

This is probably the best I've felt in...I can't even remember when!

Fantastic achievement man! Very nice work- keep it up!

Working out on the reg increases those endorphins and just increase spirits so much. Don't stop, or the old habits will remanifest themselves and you'll gain it back.

Thanks for the support, everyone!

@Juliets: Its sounds generic, but basically it's all diet and excercise. I started a nutritionist supervised diet program with Medifeast. I eat 4 meal replacements each day and 2 self-prepared "lean and green" meals each day basically consisting of 90% green veggies and no more than 7 oz. of an animal protein (a.k.a. meat). Then I just try to fit in 15-30 minutes of excercise every day...

Meanwhile, as far as my less exciting weight loss journey, I'm happy to report that at least I've lost 25 lbs since June as of last week. :D

And somehow I broke 55,000 steps in a day last week as well. :slick: I should have known my OCD and obsessive personality would thrive on something like Fitbit.

Congrats you guys! Keep it up!

I lost 10 lbs a couple weeks ago (due to getting sick). :sigh:

But thankfully, I'm slowly getting that weight back.

I monitored my weight every day, for a couple of days, and it seems I'm stagnating, but during the day, it ebbs and flows, in a way that hints at sisyphic work. I'm currently gravitating around 86kg (I'm being told by Google that means 189.5 lbs), which, given my height, is technically still a bit overweight. If I have classes (going to school takes a 30-minute walk and another 30min back) or have busy activity in town and/or go to the gym, I shed 1/1.5kg easily (someone told me it's because I get dehydrated). But then during the evening, after drinking my liter of Pepsi and having dinner (which can sometimes be as simple as a salad or salmon), it's all back up. :sigh:

I can't. It's a vice. :(

Never argued I'm on a diet, either. I'm well aware that's the detracting part, because I don't seriously diet. The best I could do is find a better meal plan.

I worked out for the first time since April. I dropped ten pounds last time I worked out regularly but put it back on over the summer.

Are you doing strength training or cardio Epi? Or both? Is your cardio jogging?

It's a bit of both I guess. No jogging. Lots of repetitive motions.

So a year ago to this day, after some events I won't touch upon that made me hit a fairly significant low, I've decided the very next day to go sign up at a gym and work out whenever I had two hours to spare during the afternoon (which, as it proved, was quite often). I'm very sedentary and lazy by nature, having indulged in the past only in a bit of jogging around the block. So I did it in order to not be inactive during the winter months and, at first, to go and run myself out of breath for 30 minutes. Then I gradually embraced workouts as much as doing my usual cardio bit.

I'm not writing this as a kudos to me, btw. Even after a year, I am still hardly balanced or inspired in what I eat and following no particular diet whatsoever. I'm surely not working out to the fullest and in the best way, either, and could have had better physical results by now, but I do the exercises I know and can handle. I even did a poor job monitoring my weight all the time, but it seems last December I had it written down at 89.something kg (sorry I don't do lbs) and now I'm slightly below 84.5, which at least finally places me out of the overweight zone, according to my BMI. What surprises me is that my gains and losses have been so up and down around the 86 mark during September-October, despite regular work out, while this past month I've lost one-one1/2, despite barely managing to go due to my schedule. Is it because of my daily walks and activities and stress at work and in town? Or is my body decaying on its own now? Who knows.

Anyway, that's my weird story at the 1 year mark, hopefully I'll perservere and manage to scrape the whole abdominal excess off in the next year and model my body a bit more.

Nice work. That's similar to what I pulled off through dietary restrictions with no exercise save for the random dance party with the girls and chasing them around the house. How tall are you? My BMI still has me as overweight by a hair. :|

1. I miss fingersplints.

2. Every time I go for a run I feel like a million bucks. I just need better shoes so I don't end up with a gigantic nasty blister on both feet.
