Default Just joined, an introduction

Hi there,

I just joined today and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm 20 years old and the freshmen 15 was more like 40 for me. I started at 198 in July and am down about 15 pounds.

I've been doing weight watchers (going to meetings when I can, paying attention to points when I can) and hitting the gym 5x a week for 45 minutes of cardio, in addition to walking my dogs and bicycling.

I think its cool this place has a 20-something category; I feel out of place at WW meetings amongst all the middle-aged women

Hey! I am in the same situation. I just join this a couple days ago. I am 20 and am up 45 from High school. I started at 198 and am at 195 as of my WW meeting last week. I recently got a personal trainer and am working out about 4x a week with weight training and circuit training. I would love it if we could help each other out and be buddies.

Welcome!!!!!
Great to have you here!!!
It´s a great site, you´ll get lots of great tips and support!

Gatorgirl-- you have a personal trainer? I´d love to have one but you wouldn´t believe how expensive they are here, totally out of my budget! I´m really envious (is that word correct?) LOL

My trainer gives me print outs of my workouts. What excercises, number of reps, weights etc. If you would like I can post them somehow. The only reason I can afford it is because it is through my school and the trainer is a student. But it is tailored towards weight loss. I also had a trainer over the summer (she graduated) and I can post those workouts as well.
