Maybe we can help one another. I too am looking to lose weight, about 35lbs. I'm 40 and this year I had high blood pressure for the first time in my life. I am really committed to dropping the pounds for good, but only with good diet and exercise, no fad diets. How about we start by posting each day our progress of working out and eating healthy. Last night I went to intro gym for a personal training session. It was hard but also embarrasing for me everyone could watch my training. Afterward I was happy I went, but also disappointed because I gained the weight and was the "big girl" in a gym full of fit toned people. I decided it wasn't for me and trying a spin class tonight with a friend.
You are just the person I am looking for. Like you, I am looking to lose weight, for me it is about 35-40lbs. This time, I am committed to doing it the right way, eating healthy and working out. No fad diets or pills for me, tried them and they don't work long term. I am looking for a life style change. I have take 2 steps toward the progress, 1st is to eat 5 fruits or vegetables a day. Second, I committed to myself to work out every day for 20 minutes or more. What are the changes that you are making? Any others have suggestions on changes and how to commit to one another?View Thread
