Smile here I go again..

Hello everyone!

I am new here and in need of some serious help, support, and accountability! I am 47 years old and weigh 230, i am 5'4". I am completely embarrassed about my weight & I could sit here in denial and say I don't know how this happened, or blame it on being post-menopausal. But in reality, I did this to myself through a bad diet and lack of exercise. (ice cream is my downfall)!

A little background, I am a wife, mom, and grandma I have a special needs child, I am self-employed, I like yankee candles, walks in the rain, 80s hair bands and any quiet time I can get!!

Back in my 30s my highest weight was 185 and I lost 40 lbs in 90 days using power 90/beachbody program & eating around 1200 calories a day. I know I can do this.

I find myself looking through before/after weight loss pics which motivates me but the problem is I can't seem to STAY motivated!

I know I need to fight this, I know I need to do this for myself, my health, & my future.

I am looking for LOTS of friends so please add me! Doesn't matter what you are (male/female) or otherwise! I am interested in talking to other positive people where we can cheer one another on! I will be logging in daily & posting my daily exercise and calories.

Welcome Kathy! If motivation is an issue, you might look into Beachbody's new "Beachbody on Demand" which has every program they have made (I think) for $99 a year. (I am NOT a BB coach, and I'm not pitching anything, for the record). I was super skeptical about signing up - I have done their P90X and Insanity programs and was ready to try something new but didn't know what. I usually like to just buy my programs outright because we have spotty internet where I live and "Beachbody on Demand" is a streaming program sort of like Netflix but just for BB's workout programs. Anyway, I signed up, started doing T25 and Piyo (I alternate days) as well as their 3 Week Yoga Retreat and I have just had a blast. The weight loss hasn't been dramatic- I've lost 10 lbs since January- but I had already lost 40 and the weight loss I think naturally slows the closer you get to goal anyway so I'm not deterred by that. Anyway, it's a thought.

So, WELCOME! There are some good threads on here - there are a couple exercise accountability threads, and usually you can find a "getting out of the XXX's" thread for the area of weight loss you are currently in. I love this place!

Hi EagleRiverDee! Thank you for that info! I have been considering the beachbody program again! I had such great success with it before... I am still trying to figure my way around this site! Looks like there is a lot of support and so much great info! Thanks for the nice welcome
