Hi

I'm new to exercise, I want to lose like 20 ibs I guess, I really just want to drop down to around a size 6, I'm a 10 right now. I know my friend is a size 6 and weighs 120 so thats why I picked that number. I've been unhappy with my weight for a very long time since it seemed like all the girls in my school were always size 3 or lower. I finally decided to do something about it .

I know it would be almost impossible to diet for me, especially since for dinner we usually eat fast food. I relized that my weight has not really changed in a long time so I'm hoping by adding exercise which I never really did that would help me drop a little. I started over a week ago with just doing some running in place, push ups (like 5 since thats all I could do), and some sit ups to start getting used to it.

Then I saw Denise Austin on tv in the morning and started to exercise with her, I also just bought her personal trainer dvd, and ordered Billy Blank's Bootcamp.

I've tried to do this before by just exercising on my own but usually gave up within 3 days. This time I really want to give it a go, I even bought the jeans in the size I want to be, so I will hopefully stick to it

I know I dont want to lose a lot but always like friends to talk to about things I want to do and most of mine are either the weight I want to be, even skinnier, or just say it wont work and it's a waiste of money, so trying not to tell most of em

Thanks,

Chrissy

FONT=Verdana]Hi Chrissy,

My name is Nicole - and I too want to lose roughly 20 pounds, 15 of which I just put on in last two months mostly while I was home visiting my family and eating my mothers cooking. It is sooooo hard to have a mother that is a good cook when you have a tendency to put on weight

And just last week I dropped a large amount of cash on a new pair of true religion jeans that do not fit me now - and over a month ago I bought a pair that I have only been able to wear once, and they are really great jeans. The kind that you just know you will look just incredible in *sigh* I better get my money's worth!

Just in case you are wondering - I started out at around 245lbs about 4 years ago now (I am really not sure as I stopped looking at the scale at that point) and eventually reached 143 as my lowest point, but I think I looked too thin at that weight, so I am really striving for 150. I let myself get to 170 over the past two months...I was about 155 before I went home in July...I can't believe it...it is very disappointing...and I don't think my husband it very happy about it either.

Default Accounability

Did you exercise today? If not then get out there! Walk around the block, stand while you are using the computer, anything! OK, enough of the motivational speak. I am SwimMom and another new user. I want to lose about 40 pounds and also lack anyone close to be a strong motivator for me. I'm hoping everyone on this site will be able to help. I need to be able to tell someone each day if I met my goals or not and have someone tell me to get out there. I hope we can help each other. So get out there! (or to your livingroom)
