I'm wondering about realistic goal setting? I would like to lose 50 lbs in 11 weeks. I am going to have to step up my workout plan to make this happen. I am going to be in a wedding in October. The bride just decided she wants me to wear beige, ugh! I was hope for a mocha color. LoL I would settle for no belly fat and arms that do not wave.

Mocha sounds pretty...beige...not so much...but hey gotta make the bride happy Big Grin

How long have you been on the plan...I did not look back in posts to see if it is in there somewhere. Do you think you are on track? It is a big goal but people do do it and so can you!

I have been seriously dieting for about a month. My goal was to lose 50 lbs by the end of November but now that the pressure is on for this wedding my date has been moved up. Worse case scenario, I don't meet my goal but I think I can lose a significant amount of fat, but build some muscle.

That is a tough one when you set a goal and other circumstances come along to change it...this is life. I like your attitude, you will certainly be looking good with your new muscles and you can continue on your path towards your goal. Thumbs up

Losing body fat and gaining muscle tone is good. Just remember - when you gain muscle tone, you gain weight, but still lose inches! Whistling
I applaud your working towards your goal, no matter what the external date is, your internal date is set - You Go Girl!!! Big Grin

Muscle weigh more than ft. Sometimes you think you aren't doing good, when really you are. You are doing great Anita... Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I feel lighter even if the scales don't back up my feelings. LoL Just finished my workout. I was listening to music at the end that gave me a boost of energy so I decided to bump up my workout and extend it 15 minutes, but that energy left after 35 second with the elliptical machine maxed out. LoL

I'm going to make pork loin chops on the grill tonight. Yum. I just buy either a half or whole boneless pork loin and cut the chops myself. Save money that way. All it takes is a good knife. I've found a serrated bread knife works great. Mostly because the only other good knife I have is just a paring knife and not big enough.

Grapes. Green ones. LOL Wasn't in a veggie mode last night. May go raid the corn patch for lunch. They didn't taste as good as usual, since I didn't have my special seasoning salt from the Pork Producers. I'm not home, haven't been since the 9th, and won't be back till the 28th.

Works for me! I tend to get burned out on veghgies but never fruit. LoL I'm learning to keep it simple with cucumbers, broccoli and tomatoes. Those are my go-to for a quick veggie.

I agree - I love my fruit, but certain veggies can be overwhelming. I like my tomatoes though Big Grin

I need to improve my fruit intake...always a difficult thing for me, not even sure why. I'm going to go get an apple right now!!!

Calorie wise I am doing okay and for the most part keep on track. Went camping this weekend and of course I have no clue how many calories I had...but I did curb myself a little so I know I did better than I "normally" would.

One thing I'm going to add here is Fitocracy (www.fitocracy.com). I use that to log what I do for exercising. I used to use myfitnesspal, but I found that I was not eating the way I should by going by that. I stopped logging my food, just started to eat what I wanted in MODERATION, and had a good day or so to myself (chocolate cake anyone?). I lost over 10lbs that way in about a month whereas when I logged everything I didn't lose anything but my sense of humor. I'm stuck at work all day, so I do 125 squats & 50 lunges (25 at a time on squats, then 10 at a time on each leg). I also have a 8lb dumbbell that I do my arm exercises on while I'm at work. Beats just sitting there picking my nose all day!! Then at night, if I feel like it, I'll go on the elliptical (picked one up for free off of Craigslist, it's not the best, but it works) if I'm not out in the yard doing yardwork.
Never be afraid of a scar. It just means that you were stronger than something that tried to hurt you.

I'll have to check that out too. But, I may just stay at myfitnesspal...I have way too many login's and passwords to file away.
