Just wanted you to know I am 4 years older and I feel your pain. ( I weight 246, just lost 4lbs:) But hang in there you are not alone. When I started walking it seemed overwhelming. I started by just walking to my mailbox and getting my mail was the reward. I loved seeing a Belk's sales paper. I live on a little hill, so I would read the paper then hike by up. Okay it wasn't really a hike but it sure did feel like it. Cheering you on!!!View Thread
Just wanted to say I loved reading everyone's posts. I am loving logging my food because I had no idea how quickly I was adding calories. I also like that this site monitors how many calories I need. I never liked math in school:) Found out I had high cholesterol, so I am reading all I can to understand what to eat. As well as logging in my exercise. I am a visual person, so I like seeing the little icon running to my goal. Looking forward to being a part of a support team. Right now 100lbs to loose seems daunting, so I have set my first goal for 10. I am thinking 10 sets of 10. When I make my first goal I am buying a sunflower Tervis cup. I will keep you posted when I reach my goal. So all the cheering would be appreciated cause I need it:)View Thread
