Welcome!

This is the place to find both motivation and great people. Make sure you browse around the boards... what some of the ladies here have accomplished is absolitely amazing!

So tell us a bit about yourself.. what kind of eating / exercise are you doing, etc?

Default thanks all

thanks everyone for the kind words and welcomes

sorry i didnt get back to everyone right away, i had a lil accident and cracked 2 back molars so i have been "enjoyin" some root canals i had to get done lol!

well I'm from brooklyn, NY and right now the weather is really hot/hazy so walking outside today is out of the question. i have been doing weight watchers/ calorie counting. its kind of hard but its been working for me so far. i have this program i received in a health and nutrition class that i input all i eat in a day and tells me how many calories i ate, vitamins, nutrients, sodium..etc. and also how many calories burned with activities.

as for exercise i have been walking to my local libary and back so thats 2 miles back and forth. i try to do that 3-4 days a week. i have also been using resistance bands for toning and the usual crunches, sit ups and push ups. im big on jumping jacks too.

its been working so far me so i'm sticking with it and see how far it gets me until i have to extend the time period.

as i said before, thanks to you all and i hope to def keep intouch with everyone on my progress. even though since my accident i havent been in too good shape to move let alone exercise and i havent yet weighed myself. i doubt i have gained anything since i having been suckin down soft foods mostly living off of mashed potatoes and spaghetti lol.
