to change my mindset, and tweak my lifestyle in order to lose weight easily and effortlessly
to use my creativity to make weight loss and enjoyable and enriching journey
+Fitness/Health weakness: tiredness, stress
+Do you have an ED/Fitness Disorder?: no
+What do you think limits you the most in making healthy choices?: time, stress, money
+What are you doing or have you done to make the best of a situation barring you from a healthy lifestyle?: making health a number one priority, using various techniques to focus on my intention to lose weight (hypnosis, meditation, creative endeavors such as this one...)

is this community dead?

I imagine the answer is yes, judging from the dates of the last posts here, and that's a shame, because from the user-info this group actually looks cool. I mean, there are so many unhealthy thinspo/crazy groups around and lots of people who want to just drop a couple pounds and get healthy are sucked into "analulzomg" because they operate under the guise of "losing weight"

Anyway, I used to weight train quite rigorously when I was younger and though general malaise/stupidness quit that when I went to University. I guess I might as well post and introduction, what the hell.

+Reason for joining:
+ I seriously enjoy working out. Cycling and lifting make me feel GOOD. Endorphins are my favorite high, and I know that I am way to young to allow myself to let go. I've taken too many bio and chem classes to believe fad diets, and I want my metabolism to stay just as strong as my heart and lungs. That being said, I lost most of my upper-body tone over the year and want to regain my figure. Skinnyfat is pointless.
+Current fitness/health goal:
+ I'm 5'4" and at my prime, was less than 18% body fat and could bench press 90 lbs for my 3rm, I could run a mile in 7 minutes and could actually do bar dips/pull-ups without spotters. I've since let myself go and at my highest weight was 140 lbs. That's still a "healthy" BMI, but at the high range of average. Basically, I want to get that toned body back, I miss having cut arms and not looking like a failure with the girlie bar. So my goals are as follows:
arms: at least 3 unspotted pull ups and chin ups. need to do 30 nose-to-floor push-ups without stopping. and general weight-training with free weights and machines. Bench, incline, decline, curls and military press for starters.
legs: the consequence for gaining so much weight came in the form of cellulite in my thighs. I have since killed that, but I'd like to cut as much fatty tissue from my legs and tone them. Need to start doing squats and wall-sits again.
core and back: should be obvious- tone up. Lat pulls and situps omg!
weight: this is kind of tricky, because I want muscle tone more than anything. I want to kill excess fat in my gut and arms and try for a body fat around 19-ish% Currently, I am 120 after four months of working out and refining my diet choices. I anything below 110 would be unhealthy for me.
+ I've discovered cycling, and love my road bike. Smoking was shit for my lungs and I've quit that for good (it's been over 6 months!) So I want to start training for big group rides, like in the 100 mile range. I want endurance and long, lean muscles.
+Do you have an ED/Fitness Disorder?:
Hell no, and people who pretend to just so the can join ana/mia communities for "weight loss tips" are only screwing themselves. But that being said, I'm more than willing and in fact would love to help people with EDs make healthy fitness choices.
+What do you think limits you the most in making healthy choices?:
+ I know I'm weak, and that makes me ashamed to use the weight room at the gym. I attend a small university and often see friends/ex-boyfriends there and it just makes me awkward. Yeah.... that's pretty lame of me to chicken out like that. Also, as a full-time student with a job/boyfriend/and parties to juggle, I have a hard time picking a regular gym time.
+What are you doing or have you done to make the best of a situation barring you from a healthy lifestyle?:
+ I've cut out red meat, excess beer (still love the whiskey) and no longer eat heavily-processed foods. I have a fitday profile which is pretty silly (those things never get the calories right, anyway and you just feel good about yourself). I go to the gym when I have the time and do short/intense cardio like stairmaster and then a little of this and that- sit ups, push ups, the usual.

+ OMG, this video is sexy sexy love. And silly as hell :D






uh anyway, I guess this was a bit long, but what's the point, huh? If you read this on your friends list, add me because that would be awesome. I have tons of questions about training for endurance cycling and nutritional supplements/etc. Buddies are lots of fun and inspiring!

Hi.

My name is Sarah, I've been a member of this community for a while, and I'm also a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM. I train people in the gym and at their homes, but I'm now trying to start a new business venture.. Online training. I will be starting up my own website in a few months which will be geared towards creating very individualized plans in both nutrition and workouts to reach whatever goal you may have. I will have many options for plans and prices, however I'd like to get a few people started early (at EXTREEMLY discounted rates) so by the time my website is up I can have a section of "testimonies" and "successes". I dont want to get into any details right now (only because I don't want to clog up people's Friends pages) but if anyone is interested in my services PLEASE reply and I will contact you! I will charge only $10 per plan per month for the clients (through paypal), when regularly I will be charging $50 and up depending on plans. Each plan will be very detailed. This is a great oppertunity, so if you're intrested, comment and I'll get more info to you. Thanks!



(Mods: If this isn't allowed please let me know and I'll take it down!)

HELLO EVERYONE!


Well, I dont know where to start.. so I just will. SHORT but TO THE POINT.

I am the co -founder of this community . Myself and sexyclipse went MIA for a while.

I had sort of an amish year, and excluded the computer from my life for a good while -- and to my dissapointment, FITSPIRATION has suffered. I came back in here to see so many new people with all these exciting stories to tell -- with no follow ups. Which completely defeats the purpose of this group.

Well, I am here to tell you -- starting this week, things will be up and running back to normal.
Any questions can be forwarded to my AIM: AminMeLaLL (cut and paste, dont bother trying to type it lol)

Talk to you all very soon..hopefully we can get excited about becoming healthy again. (Ive really let myself go without this community, I dont know about you guys)

+Reason for joining: I have not exercised in the last year, and put on some weight - I am always more comfortable with myself when I'm exercising, and feel toned, so I'm hoping this community will offer support/tips and that I can help others too...
+If applicable, who referred you?: Found this site while browsing...
+Current fitness/health goal: (include your height if you mention specific weights) I would like to do 45-60 minutes of cardio a day, and weight training/abs 3-5 times a week... I would also like to lose a couple inches in my hips and waist, and mostly my thighs.... I am 5'5" and weigh 115... ideally I would like to get down to 105-110...
+Fitness/Health weakness: I love doing crunches and weights, but due to asthma I have a hard time doing cardio for an extending amount of time... I would like to increase my cardiovascular health...
+Do you have an ED/Fitness Disorder?: Diagnosed with anorexia 3 years ago... have tried to recover in the last year
+What do you think limits you the most in making healthy choices?: Being obsessive
+What are you doing or have you done to make the best of a situation barring you from a healthy lifestyle?: I bought a treadmill recently so that I have NO excuses not to run...

+Reason for joining: The season is starting and I have to be in shape.
+Current fitness/health goal: Increase speed and stamina and strength. And maybe get back down to a 6 (I don't know if this seems small, but I've been a 6 for a looong time and over the past year I've climbed up to a 10).
+Fitness/Health weakness: Stamina, for the most part. I can run very, very fast for about 50m and after that...pff.
+Do you have an ED/Fitness Disorder?: No.
+What do you think limits you the most in making healthy choices?: I have difficulty making myself do things...it's much better when I'm with others, which is probably why I've slipped so much over the past year.
+What are you doing or have you done to make the best of a situation barring you from a healthy lifestyle?: I've been doing simple calisthenics for going on 3 weeks I think now. I run every other day, and I spent the last week training HARD, upped reps of everything and went on good, long bike rides (which are easier on my poor joints!) to work on stamina.
