October 2012

Hi everyone!

As mentioned, today I begin my journey of eating healthier and exercising, so that I can lose weight.  I've spoken with a coworker who wants to start walking two evenings a week, after work, and I have another coworker who wants to play tennis one evening a week.  With walking and tennis, and having someone to exercise with, I'm hoping it will be fun instead of work.  I am going to post a picture on the 1st of each month.  I'm hoping to be able to document by doing just one photo a month.  I know there won't be much difference the first few months, but I'm still going to post the photos.

So, here I am.  I'm about a month from turning 37.  I am 5'5 and weigh 247 pounds.  My goal weight is 160. 

This was taken on Friday, at work.  The dress hides most of what you'd see in real life, but believe me, it's all there.  I'll try to wear lighter clothing in future photos so that we can see everything, and hopefully the differences, as time goes on.  Geez, I look awful, and about 8 months pregnant. lol

Have a good day!

Hi darlin' :) Wishing you the very best of luck! I'm doing a program myself, and have lost 20 lbs. since Aug. 7th. I can't believe how much better I feel after 'only' twenty! I have 100 to lose. Yikes! You can do this, my friend!!! Cyber hugs and encouragement to you and your friend from Missouri :)

Good for you! I can't believe how much healthier I have been since I really started to pay attention to what I am eating and trying to get more active. It feels good to be doing something for me and that will benefit my family as well. I actually hired a trainer and although it comes at a monetary cost, it has really and truly been worth it so far. I am not getting bored and I'm exercising five times per week! It really helps to have to be accountable to someone!
All the best!

I know you can do it. You have awesome support with friends. I know I have to get serious too. I have one more surgery for inner problems next week but come Nov I am back to WW. I an just a little shorter than you at 5.2 and 240 so I need serious help too. I know you'll be an inspiration to me. I am excited for you. HUGS and love.
