Well I am back and still weight about the same weight. I have been training for my first full marathon after doing a few 1/2 marathons and need to lose alot of weight before then. My first marathon will be in January and would love to be down to about 160 - 165 by then if I am then I have a good chance of being successful.

I am just going to watch what I eat and make better choices. I wil increasing the intensity of my workouts and adding some weight training.

Anyone like to buddy up?

I am thinking of doing a marathon as well!! I have never done one before (or even half a marathon) but I plan to star training on Tuesday!

I'm not able to do any weight training yet. I had surgery 3 weeks ago on my arm/shoulder. I had a Proximal Humeral Plate with nine screws put in to put my broken bones together. However, I have been cleared to go on the treadmill. My issue is FOOD and my inability to overcome the devil :devil: that sits on my right shoulder encouraging me to eat the junk. I have the positive attitude, the motivation to workout but for some ridiculous reason I cannot resist JUNK. So I think buddying up with someone would be helpful

Good luck! I want to try a to do a triathalon. I was hoping to do one the past summer, but never got into shape - the running is what is killing me. So I'm hoping that this winter I can get back into it and do a couple throughout the spring/summer.
PG - I feel like you too - FOOD is my downfall. Not so much junk, but just eating in general and too much, no matter what it may be. You're not alone.

I just have to say HI if you are the same Hockeychic that I 'met' about five years ago here, on the 'Doin it the Old Fashioned Way' thread! :wave:

I have done a few 1/2 marathons but never a full. A tri is also something I would like to try but not sure about the swimming part:dizzy:

VermontMOM: I do remember that thread.....so yes that must have been me....unfortunatley I think I weight more now then I did then:(
