I am very new to this site, and I'm not sure which forum to be posting in. I need weight loss support, so this seems to be the one!
I am a 44 year old mother of three, business owner, and volunteer. Life gets away on me most days, and I don't think about how I eat. I am also an emotional eater, and seem to be stressed, therefore eating, pretty darned often! Just three years ago, I was in very good shape, competing in triathlons, and bicycling avidly 200 miles per week. I was 30 pounds lighter (unhappy with my weight even then
), and felt much better (younger) than I do now.
I have tried too many times to count to "get back on the wagon," and lose the weight and get back into shape. Truth is, I seem to be lazy, and can't get my act together. I'm hoping there's someone out here who can encourage me along the way. I have been reading many threads all over this site, and have been getting a lot of inspiration - now I have to change that into motivation!
I have broken down my mini-goals, and would like to have the 30 pounds gone by April, which I don't think is unreasonable. Please, any encouraging words are appreciated
