Welcome / Hi everyone!
« on: October 13, 2012, 05:39:24 PM »
I am new to the forum. I am over 40, married, and have a large family. My goal is to lose weight so that I can see all of my children grow up. I am hoping to have another child next year but I know that I have to lose weight first. I am vegetarian and I am always on the look out for new ways to get protein into my diet without eating animals.  I hope that I can participate and encourage others to reach their goals as I make the appropriate changes in my diet so that I can be healthier.

Workout Equipment / stationary bike
« on: October 12, 2012, 06:23:17 PM »
Currently my favorite workout machine is my stationary bike. I do 6 miles every morning. Sometimes, I listen to music but other times I watch a movie while I am riding. It is convenient and quiet and I can exercise without leaving the living room.  It is light enough that when I want to, I move it to other rooms in the house so I can watch what my kids are doing. The kids like it too and my 3 year old has learned a new song that really cracks me up. She sings I can ride my bike with no handlebars while swinging her legs on my bike.

Nutrition / Raw food versus cooked
« on: October 11, 2012, 09:57:44 AM »
I have heard that it is healthier to eat raw fruits and vegetables as opposed to cooking them. I find that when I eat raw fruits and vegetables I feel more satisfied afterwards and I am less likely to overeat.  However, I am curious to know others experiences with this. Also, is it healthier to cook grains or to eat them raw?

Motivation / Keeping a journal
« on: October 10, 2012, 04:00:04 PM »
I find that to stay motivated, I keep a journal of what I eat and what activities I accomplish throughout the day. It helps me to remember what not to eat because I don't want to have to write it down in my journal! I also keep track of how I feel after I eat and I write down my daily and weekly goals so that I can track my progress. Does anyone else find that keeping a journal helps you to stay motivated? Do you post a before picture at the beginning and periodically take new pictures to see the difference?
