Excersis help.... Should I include something else this soon?
I've been trying for many years to lose weight. While visitng my folks in Ky I used their scale... 270.5lbs! My heaviest ever!! So, while there I made the choice of starting to walk and take vits, herb ect and watch what I eat. Fast forward 2 weeks (started last week as 4 days after we got home my suster went into labor and I spent the weekend by her)I am taking mega green tea extract, fish oil, pre-natal vits and cinnamon extract(to help maintain my blood sugar which tends to dip when dieting) I walk everyday (except once I didn't) for the past 8 days. Only.36 of a mile for 12 min, but seeing as I haven't really excersised in years... better then nothing. I'm keeping my calories under 1600, but am still working on lower my fat and rasing my protein... Anyways....
I can tell that my body is changing... Probably water weight I guess.... but my shirts aren't as tight and the part under my chest and above my belly button is getting a little smaller.... I wonder if I should try protein powders?? I don't want to get all flabby..... HELP! TIA~ Tina
