Nightkatt Oh that looks soooo good. Now I'm craving salad.
mountain walker I struggled with that my last time around. Exercise wasn't getting any easier, it was too expensive to pay for the gym. I made up so many excuses for myself to stop doing it and I did. I gained back all 40 lbs that I lost, and an extra 3 lbs on top of that. It was horrifying. Now I'm having to start again this year at the exact same spot where I was last year and all I can think about is that if I had just kept going I'd be at goal by now. But let me tell you that after starting again in October going to the gym, it may feel like it's not getting any easier but it is. I didn't realize how in shape I was earlier in the year. I could run, I could stay on the elliptical for long periods of it. When I started again I felt like I was dying after 10 minutes. So it may not feel like you've gotten any better but I'm sure you have. And in terms of aching, I second the celadrin and I'd also think about taking glucosamine.
