Top Exercise Equipment


 Even though there are many factors that should be taken into consideration (the three main factors being nutrition, exercise, rest/recovery) one of the most important factors when it comes to losing weight is not just what exercises we choose to do, but also the exercise equipment that we choose to use.

Wednesday Weigh In - Let yourself cry!

The Numbers

This week has been a success!  It helps that the scale shows a 7lb loss from last Wed. although I can’t help but feel it’s deceptive.  That being said, I’m going to choose to trust that I’m doing the right things and keep on doing them!

  • Food intake has been under control, filled with mostly protein and healthy-ish carbs.
  • Hunger has been top of mind, I’ve been using it to tell me when to eat, revolutionary, I know!
  • Fitbit has…

Weight Loss Surgery is NOT the easy way out

For the last six months I cannot tell you how many times people have given me that ugh look when I tell them I am trying to qualify for weight loss surgery. Or when they tell me are you sure you really want to…

Fatty - a story of finding inspiration

Have you found that at times your motivation to lose weight falls by the way-side, feeling defeated that you can lose the pounds you want?

I sure have, it's the most frustrating process EVER. But this all changed for me once I realized I needed to have a shift in perspective and have seen great results since!

Here we go again .............

Five years ago, I won my struggle with my weight. I worked hard, and lost 40+ pounds. I look great and felt even better. For the first time in my life I wore a size 6 jeans honestly felt like I'd won the lottery

I soon found that keeping the weight off was , MUCH more difficult than losing it to begin with. Then I fell into the trap of reading umpteen different health and fitness blogs and veering far , far away from what worked for me, my body and my lifestyle, and trying to emulate…

With the Biggest Loser being in the news lately, I wanted to take a look at what we can learn from the show and the controversy. The Biggest Loser is a reality television show and creating something for television, it has to be dramatic and captivating. As written in People Magazine, normal weight loss is not interesting. So they exercise them like crazy and give them tough challenges that no typical person losing weight would do or could sustain. The controversy over the latest winner's…

Getting Real for the First Time

You hear people say "today is the first day of the rest of your life," all the time in those inspirational stories of weight-loss that we have all watched way too many episodes of.  It's the first day of the rest of your life - we get it, but we refuse to apply it to ourselves because that would mean we'd have to get up and make a change.  It would force us to look at our behavior on an in-depth…

So I am getting physical therapy and am in the room with the door closed and the therapist is working on my lower back, when I hear through the door someone talking about the diet that she is on. It made me sad and angry. Sad because it reminded me how I tried lots of diets to lose weight and when I was on the diet, I thought this was "the one" that was going to work. But they never did. After I lost the weight, I would start gaining it back within a few months and of course more. I did this…

If you are like me and tried every diet and exercise program and spiritual and religious program and therapy and nothing worked and you feel hopeless, keep reading..... That's how I felt 5 years ago. I had been dealing with weight and food issues since elementary school. In sixth grade, the pediatrician put me on the first of many diets which included diet pills (uppers), yes that was a long time ago when the doctor didn't know better. I was a binge eater and sneak eater, but always…

My mentor Roy Nelson ( says that if we keep on doing what we’ve always been doing, we will keep on getting what we’ve always been getting. When I started his program, I was desperate and did whatever I needed to do to lose the weight, keep it off and get the feelings out. I soon found out that just as the food and weight was a symptom of a deeper issue, I had other things I was using to prop up the ego which needed to be…

With Phillip Seymour Hoffman's death, I am reminded that many celebrities not only act in their profession; but they put on an act in their personal lives as well. Acting as if we are ok when we are not; hiding behind pride and ego when we really feel bad about ourselves, that is what we emotional eaters have in common with celebrities. I put on a good front that I had a good life, that I knew what I was doing, that I had it together, that I was in control; when the truth was that inside I…

My Weight Loss Journey

On the Jenny Craig forums someone asked how to keep up their motivation once they've been on a plan for more than 6 months... it got me to thinking about what I've done in the past, what has worked and what hasn't worked. I think a large part of making the program into your lifestyle is your mindset. Here was my response:

I really started gaining weight in college when I completely stopped playing sports and led the typical college life of too much bad food,…

A Letter to Myself

A letter to my former self:
I look at you in the picture, a few days before Henna’s first birthday and these should have been some of the happiest times. But, the smile on your face is not a real smile. After each picture you kept wondering, why can’t your husband catch a flattering picture of you? But in reality you had been ignoring yourself for months. Ignored the scale, ignored mirrors, ignored your older clothes and just started to buy dresses so that you could hide under…

Um, okay. I've been having some real time management issues, and I'm missing the gym like CRAZY. I haven't been on a treadmill in over a month and I feel wicked awful. On a positive note, I've been doing really well with my clean eating, and I think I can actually see some results. This is a new thing for me and I have to say, I love this feeling! So I'm shooting for a much larger version of this feeling and aiming to get back into e gym this week. With any luck, my husband will help me out… Continue

First Weigh In Results

So as I expected, my first WI was AWESOME!  I mean, better than awesome.  I lost a whopping 6.6 lbs!  I know that the first two weeks are typically big losses as your body adjusts to the changes but this have given me some positive momentum.  I mean, I know that I am able to do this, I just need to stick to it!  I just weighed in this morning and replenished my WW snacks and treats for the week.  I will be going to the meeting on Tuesday night with the leader that I clicked with last week.…

Getting Back At It

Last month I went to the doctor and stepped on the scale.  Ugh!  I knew I was up but I had not seen that number since losing the baby weight 3 years ago. I realized that I had spent the last several months dedicated to understand my childrens needs (one is dyslexic and the other has a speech delay).  A little bit feeling sorry for myself (which gets you no where) and fighting the good fight with teachers and schools to get any services that they need to be successful at school.  In all of…

Hello Fellow Blog To Losers

I wanted to introduce myself as I just signed up. I think this is a wonderful idea, how have I not known about this? Anyway now that I am out from under a rock, my name is Melissa. My weight loss story is from almost 20 years ago when I lost 128lbs. I didn't follow any program in particular but sort of made up my own along the way, it worked and in a years time I went from a size 22 to a 2. However I still was not comfortable wearing sleeveless shirts or showing my legs so I started weight… Continue
