Hi everyone. I am new to the 25 - 50 lbs. diet club. I am 49 years old and have 30 lbs. to lose. My current weight is 165 lbs. I exercise regularly with spin classes and weights, although I could add more weight training.
I have been busy with a new house for 4 months and put my exercise and good eathing habits on the back burner. During this period of time, I managed to gain 20 lbs. and went to 175 lbs. I returned to the gym about a month ago and lost 10 of the 20 lbs I had gained. Before buying my new house, I still had 20 lbs to lose, so you can see my issue.
My problem is not with exercise, but with eating. Someone once told me that eating is 60% of the equation to losing weight, whereas exercise is 40%. I need to keep that in mind.
I know what I should be doing, so I need some accountability. I figured that I could get that here and share my experiences with others doing the same.
