I think I'm going to attempt to be in. I don't know why but this waitressing job has got me gaining weight and not loosing it. I have joined up with FitDay and am still trying to figure out what the numbers mean, but it should be good just to see what I'm eating without doing a large portion of the studying myself (makes me depressed to do the counting). I was talking with a friend of mine today and she said that she's joining the local Y, so I might do so too...in an attempt to exercise (and socialize) more.
I have a shorter and a longer term goal, since I'm so overweight. Ultimately I'd love to be 50-70lbs lighter, but short term, I'd like to loose 30lbs by July so I can go to my friends weddings in style (mind you, I already plan on doing that!).
You guys have inspired me...time to go for a walk on my parents tredmill! Does anyone have any ideas for making exercise more fun? I know some people are using the DDR method, but I have bad connections to that game (ex was obsessed). I hate using the tredmill. Man I wish I had an elliptical trainer!!!
Goal: 30lbs lighter by July, happier with myself, sense of achievement (and beauty), and feeling healthier
Method: PORTION CONTROL. I eat well, but too much; Limiting bad-for-you desserts (possibly eating more fruit at that time); taking my multivitamin and calcium everyday; drinking water; and making sure to exercise more, because I really hate it.
ok...time to get the shoes on and walk up a storm!
