I, too, am doing a sort of Convert to Fit challenge for myself, and I think we can all be huge boosts of motivation to each other. One thing I have discovered about weight loss and keeping fit is that it is a lot easier for most people to do it with others. When you can bounce support off of one another, it makes the burden feel a lot smaller.
My plan is to lose about 50lbs by Blizzcon. I started April 1st with not only regular exercise, but also a completely changed food plan and calorie counting. Due to my living situation, it is extremely hard to keep fresh food in my house and to cook healthy foods. I know that sounds like a cop-out, but trust me, I'm not using it as one. Regardless, I lost 11lbs in April by exercising three times a week and counting my calories(which actually was the biggest eye-opener to my unhealthy habits!), but have found that I've hit a huge weight loss plateau. I haven't changed anything; I still exercise Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and I haven't broken down and gone back to my bad eating habits. I'm still pop(soda) free, and haven't touched fast food or highly processed food since I started. But I just can't seem to break into that next 10lbs and beyond. I think it's because I've settled into a rhythm now, and maybe it's time to shake things up.
SpencerHD, I have never heard of Tabatas, but I am going to start trying this, because I think it's just the jump-start my body needs to keep losing weight. Thank you so much for your story and this little bit of information.
I want to be support for you guys =D So let's do these things and get ourselves healthy!
