Newbie - Last Night I Decided, "I've Had It!"
Last night was my most recent, "That's It!" moment. I was changing clothes and caught my profile in the mirror and was disgusted. I had a good run at being fit for a while but got out of my exercise routine and haven't been back to it since. I've been out of shape with 20-25 lbs. overweight for about 5-6 years now.
I'm 40-something, have three kids (10, 10, and 13), am a first grade teacher and try to keep up with my 4 jewelry websites. And, yes I must admit it, I'm lazy. I work and then spend the rest of the evening on my websites. I don't like to exercise but think it's ok once I get a routine going. It's stupid, but I've avoided the gym because I'm embarrassed at how I've let myself go. I have made some vows however which are: walk at least a mile 3 days a week, drink more water and eat more whole foods. These are beginning changes to get me going. I know I will need to exercise more and have a food plan. My first short-term goal is to lose 5 lbs. by February 27.
I look forward to getting to know you all. Is there any accountability part to this support group or should one find a/some buddy/buddies? Also, how do you get those cool goal weight thingies? They're so cool!
