I just posted my intro over in the Intro section.
I'm new, embarrassed by my weight, not happy with myself or my state of health and fitness. My unhappiness in my body is affecting my marriage, though I'm married to a prince. I'm sure you've all heard it before. I need to lose 100 lbs, but I'd be content with 75, I think. It's a vain little piece of me, but I'd like to weigh less than my DH. He's a runner, has run the NYC marathon 3x.
I'm about a size 20 now, would love to be a size 8. Let's be real, I'd love to shop in a normal store again.
I can't afford to go to weight loss groups or join a gym. I need to do it all alone.
I walk my dog 7x a week, 1.7 or 2.5 miles a day - depending on when I get up or if it is a weekend. I broke my ankle last summer (2 surgeries later) and am back to walking without a limp. I want to step up my walking speed. I have Pilates DVDs and Taebo. I keep telling myself I'll alternate days. And yet, I haven't started.
Okay, is that enough self pity??? Time to get to work!
