following: Rubie-sue is Sliming Down
performance: Steady

This is it for me, and I know we all say it and say it over and over. This time though it is, how do I know? Because this is the first time I have ever gone public with a diet. I've told my family, friends, I'm posting my weight here in FS, and I've even started to blog about the whole experince. So this is it!!!

And if you'd like to see my blog it is at:
(Of course it ends in .com but it wouldn't let me add it)

All public, no more hiding and being ashamed!!

Just use Google Translate. You can read what ever language and in turn be able to write back if you'd like.

Need help
YOu have to find something that you like, and yes that can mean trying a lot of different things until you do. Even though I love to workout before work I am not getting up any earlier than I do now, but that being said to me that is the best time to do it. Then it is done and you don't ahve to work it in later. There are many 24 hour gyms, or your own tapes you could to. I have also found that on our TV cable there is workout videos you can do too. And I love Chubbychica's idea of sleeping in your sweats so you just roll out and go, excellent!!!!
Reading again what you wrote, it might behoove you to find a class to do after work so you don't go straight home afte work when you're tired from the day. That can lead to bad food choices. Instead do a 1 hour class, or a good walk....then head home to your healthy dinner.

Also, as Classicrocker said make sure your eating plan is a good one. You don't want to undo all the good work by coming home and attacking what ever is there. (yes, I am guilty of that!!) Getting to goal is 80% what we eat and 20% workout!!
