Hi Everyone!
I've made the decision. I am going to start a walking program with 20 minutes 3x/week. It was about this time of year two years ago I started working with a personal trainer. I didn't feel I was making progress and I really didn't have my heart in it. This time is different! I am looking for support, motivation, and accountability from people who can relate to what I'm going through. I know it's mind over matter and all in my control, so I'm taking the first step. I look forward to getting to know some of you!

100 lbs to go, but my first mini goal is 15 lbs, roughly 5%. Let the workouts begin!

Hi Kiwi:

That is a great goal! I think that walking is one of the best ways to exercise. Also, I find that setting small goals really helps.

We are all here to cheer you on!

Best wishes on your journey!

Hi Kiwi1351

I'm finding myself focused on mini-goals too.. that way high-fives all around when I reach mini-steps. (I have over 80# total to lose, but my mini-goals keep me sane)


Long Term Goal: 82# to lose
My Mini Goals:
Under 200#
Under 180#
Weight at 156# (50# lost)
Goal 142#
Target date for Goal Weight- Feb 7, '14 (my 50th bday)
