My name is Christy. I just turned 29. According to all the calculators I'm not "overweight" but I've definitely gained 29 pounds since before I got married and I'm here to figure out the best way to lose it. My goal weight is 135 lbs. My husband is motivating me by giving me $500 towards a new wardrobe *when I get to my goal weight!* That's motivation right there! I work out an hour a day 5 days a week at Planet Fitness in town. My favorites are the elliptical and the circuit. And I'm having to cut back on calories but so far that's been okay to get used to! It's nice to meet yall!View Thread
Best Tip: Work out early in the morning for about an hour, get a nice shower and you won't believe how much energy you'll have for the day. When I end up working out at night #1) it usually won't happen and #2) I'm too wired to sleep until a few hours later!View Thread
