I have been reading through the threads here and this sounds like a really good place to start. I have about 90-100 pounds to lose.
I had a baby on June 4, 2007. Before having my son I was excercising 30 minutes a day. After having my son, I gained 20 pounds. I want to get back into excercising and I hope the weather warms up here soon so I can take my son out on walks.
I want to add more fruits and vegetables in my diet (my fiance does not like fruits or vegetables). Once my son gets on table food, I know that I will be eating a lot more fruits and vegetables.
Right now with the fresh fruit prices and with most of them being out of season here, it is much easier for me to buy canned fruit.
When I was in high school, I was a runner. I would run 2-4 miles a day. I loved running! I got so much energy from running! Then, I met my ex husband and he put a stop to my running. He came up so many excuses why I should not run and it was easier not to do to avoid a fight. I have been wanting to get back into running, but at my current weight (220) I am sure that I would look pretty stupid outside running!! I probably could not even run a block!! I have 2 new pairs of running shoes that I bought a while ago. I am hoping that the weather gets nice so I can at least start walking and then work my way to running. We got one of those really nice strollers that you can run with and it came with built in speakers so I can hook my radio, cd player, or mp3 player in it. And my son loves the outdoors so I know that he will have fun. We are also looking into buying a burley so we can start bike riding on the weekends.
