I second the strength training.

My 9 year old had his physical last week and was a bit hyper. At one point, he was hanging with his full 65-pound body from my bent arms and I was able to hold him up for quite some time. Doctor was pretty impressed, but then again, my guns are starting to look pretty darn good.

I have to be really careful with high impact on my knees - both of them pop out of place (not often) but my right one dislocated in high school and it was really painful! I have been using the eliptical machine at the gym and try to do leg lifts while standing and a few squats until my knees feel weak which probably isn't good for them. I think this is why I have such a hard time targeting those problem areas. I hope the extra cardio will help but I guess I could start lifting with my arms for some strength training.

Hmmm you could do leg lifts instead? Or try some Pilates?

Try adding this to your cardio for a few weeks,

The following is to be done M-W-F
You will need a stop watch.
A "set" consists of 1 burpee, 10 mountain climbers and 10 jump lunges.
Start your watch and do repeated sets for 1 minute.
Stop for 15 seconds.
Repeat 10 times.
You are done.

Bankbb1- Thanks all good ideas to give my system a shock! I will try this tonight and see if I can get through 10 sets - I might have to build up to 10 but I am going to try!

Sorry to leave you wondering Bankbb1, I have been out of town the last couple days and it is very busy at work! I didn't do the exercises but plan on doing them soon. I should have done them in the hotel room but I didn't - no excuses - I did walk a lot at the mall maybe that counts! LOL!

Burpees and mountain climbers would have required you to touch the carpeting in your hotel room, so you are excused. Ew.....

I just got back from weighing in and I lost a pound! I guess that mall walking did the trick tee hee hee... excuse to go to the mall more often? One more pound to reach my goal to become a lifetime member at WW! Whoo Hoo!

I went to the gym yesterday at lunch and the trainer talked me into coming to her body pump class after work. Needless to say I am very sore this morning - I can barely walk and I have to sit very slowly! I hope I see the results on the scales today when I weigh in! Wish me luck!

Where the heart is
The weight loss has slowed down considerably now that I am on the last 25 to go. That may also be because I've been working with weights to build and tone arms, legs and core..., but still I'm getting a little PO'd at the scale! smile

I have gone down another 5 pounds this past month and I'm ready to rotate some pants out of my closet that I bought back in January.

Here's my latest "Before" and "Now" photo - The picture on the left is mid-March 2012, and the one on the right is from May 1, 2013.

One of the best things about this whole process is that I have not had a migraine in almost a year!

Before and Now...

In the before picture, are you standing next to Joe Mantegna?? Looks like it! laugh

The more you lose, the harder it is to lose more. Don't get mad at the scale, be happy at the results so far and keep up the awesome work, and enjoy the extra benefits you're experiencing.

Princess I am right there with you - so mad at the scales! I worked out twice yesterday cardio at lunch and a 1 hour body pump class last night. My legs are so sore I can barely walk and the scales went up instead of down! I know Matt is right we shouldn't measure our success by the numbers on a scale but it is sooo hard! The WW instructor said I will see the results on the scales but it may take a while. I couldn't work out today which made it worse usually if I have a bad weigh in I take it out on the treadmill!

I weighed in and lost 1.8 this week! Now I am just a half pound away from lifetime at Weight Watchers! I am so excited! I am so glad this thread was started, it keeps me on track to see everyone else doing so well. Getting advice from others that are going through the same struggles really helps me better than WW because it is daily! Thanks to all my BOL buddies!
