Thanks so much MelO, I will certainly attest to that, it can be done and in a healthy way with no gimics or craziness, just good old fashioned hard work and a marvelous group of ladies here. Glad to have you aboard!

Prairie Chick - that sounds great, I will list your goals just like that. I was right there 7 months ago, at 223lbs and thinking I would have a heart attack if I tried anything strenuous. You can totally do this and any help you need just let us know, there's a host of ladies here and in the weight loss thread that have gone from couch potato to athlete so there's some experience on that journey to help you out. I saw that you found the weight loss thread

Tummy Girl, you have an amazing job! I see all the exercise you do, which is incredible. May I ask how what you do about food? Calories? Any tips?

A fresh new start! Love January 1, and am determined to get off my rear once and for all, and to carve away some of this excess baggage while enjoying working out! Want to do the Tampa 15k Gasparilla race on Feb 27 (though I'll power walk it because of achilles tendon issues) so I've got to move it at least 4x a week until then. My goal:

Walk a minimum of 4x a week, starting with 2 mi. briskly and adding a mile a week.

Lift weights/tone at least 2x a week

Stretch really well every day I exercise to help prevent injuries.

Now to the weight loss thread to set goals in that area! Good luck to everyone... this is the year we're really going to pull it together once and for all, I can just feel it!!

Diane
