This is a great idea! We have some getting in shape to do too but I'm blaming my lack of motivation on winter. Once spring comes...Ask me what my excuse is then.

Will you guys take before and after pictures? It's really helped us before to be able to visually map the process. Little changes become very rewarding and motivating. Good luck; you can do it! I think it's awesome your whole family is involved!


I play a movie while I'm on the treadmill...I don't have to go a certain speed, but I need to keep going the whole time. Usually I start getting slower and then I see how much slower the calories are adding up and that motivates me to go faster!


Hmm, you love to read, right? Maybe pick up your favorite book and sit on a bike for an hour at the gym? I should do this. Because I don't really LOVE exercise but also want to get back in shape.

One thing I *have* learned is if I don't plan for it, it won't happen. I can't wait until I'm in the mood. I have to actually make an appointment.

You'd be surprised at how well you could do in a few months if you put your mind to it! Did anything special work in the past or are you looking for new ideas?


What a great idea!
My biggest suggestion is to make sure you have healthy snacks with you at work to eat throughout the day: think yogurt, string cheese, almonds, raisins, etc.
When i was at my ideal weight, I was literally mesauring portions for everything: cereal, ,counting out the serving size of the Goldfish crackers, measuring the 1/2 cup of pasta, etc etc. It helped a ton! I'll be rooting for you :) Good luck!!!!
