Good job on your weight loss! Any little bit lost is a positive step toward even better results. It's best to get it under control while you are still pretty young because once you become older, it becomes more difficult to keep the weight off and keep the motivation going. I am almost 40 and have weighed 234. I didn't look like I weighed that much because of my muscle mass, but I did. I joined a program that was in a weightloss competition to give me a boost to start exercising and watching what I ate. I was able to drop 28 lbs in 2 months, which was pretty unhealthy, BUT it was my start. I was going to start a program called "Body for Life" this week but my monthly came, so it got pushed back till next week. It is a program designed by Bill Phillips, he also has a book out about the program. It incorporates weights and cardio because my ultimate goal was to bodybuild, but I really just want to get lean and toned. So, whatever works for you, keep going and don't quit.View Thread
