I haven't been on this site long and enjoy the fact I can record a journal.
I'm 44 yrs old, 4 kids, married Have always been heavy. As I get older things get much harder. Thankfully I don't have diabetes but its in my family so you never know I could develop it. I do have high blood pressure, also in my family so I want to get a handle on that. Taking Cilazapril to help keep it down.
Weight loss has always been a mental thing for me, not just physical. My head has usually got to be in the right place to do it and finally I think it is.
I know its about portion size, what I eat. I'm learning about calories so that I can get myself to a point where I'm not actively watching it, but doing it automatically. I'm working on increasing my exercise regime.. I have enough dvd's that I've bought over the years to give myself variety and there are plenty of other activities I know I can do.
My goal.. is pretty high and normally I'd think it was completely out of my ability to achieve, but I've decided to stick to that goal and work towards it.
I would appreciate anyone that wanted to buddy up or work to keep each other motivated. The more the merrier I say.
