You all truly encouraged me when I posted my request for help in getting started; I am very grateful.
I believe it was Trixie who suggested checking out the local community college for a weight training class. The college I attend part-time offers weight training evenings, twice a week. I registered today online and I am so excited. Between working full-time, classes at night and this commitment, I may be too busy to overeat
It will feel more "real" once I get the confirmation of registration back, more reality will set in when I'm actually lifting!
Thanks again every-wonderful-body!
I'll keep you posted.
