Hi to all!
I started my new "healthier life" journey back in January, but only got serious in April with meaningful lifestyle changes that will carry me through the long run.
Started at 163-now 142, goal 130. 5'7".
I currently use a commercially available diet and exercise program that can be downloaded onto my Palm--so that is my "bible" and goes everywhere with me! I log it all, good and bad. So far, I have very rarely been able to meet my calorie/exercise goals. I did so well for such a long time, it seems as I get on the "home stretch" my determination is flagging.
I need a kick in the pants! So thought I would sign on here, and get some fresh support.
For exercise, I "was" doing 20 min on the elliptical 3 times a week, lower body exercises with ankle weights on those 3 days, 2 days a week, upper body exercises with 10 pound weights. Weekends I usually don't exercise.
I have crapped out on it all over the past few weeks, but am determined to begin again.
Biggest problems are after work bingeing. I start in on "healthy" stuff, and keep eating until I am either so disgusted with my self or so tired, I stop. (work nights)
All I can do is try again.
Anyway, thanks for listening! I will enjoy getting to know everybody.
