Moved from Alaska to North Dakota (I grew up in South Dakota, so I am not unfamiliar with the surroundings) but cannot wait to get back to Alaska. Currently working with a Broker-Dealer as the Operations Assistant.

I have a history of knee issues - 4 total surgeries (3 on my left and 1 on my right) so this can sometimes interfere with my work outs. And, recently found out how bad my left knee is... this is going to be tough!

I look forward to achieving my goal and getting healthy!

Any dog loving buddies?
I do have 1 awesome Chocolate Lab named Jack. He's great at just over a year old. We have to use a lead for him when walking him or he will end up walking us Smile I haven't been in the habit of taking him for a walk daily (however, he does have a large backyard to run around in and he is in good shape so no worries) bur recently thought it would be good to start the process! I am thinking once in the morning - even though I am not a morning person and do have 2 kiddos to get ready for school as well as to drop them off before I need to be to work by 8am, but could try to work on this. I am thinking sometime after dinner for the 2nd walk. Keep in mind I currently reside in ND where the winter gets pretty chilly! I don't want his poor paws - or mine! - to get too cold!

How is Weight Watchers and where did my motivation go?
Hello all! I continue to run into setbacks and out of time. How do I overcome these excuses? I have an overall lack of energy and a constant question as to which diet to tackle.

Any input would be great! I am considering Weight Watchers due to the success of a friend of mine. She is getting married in August and has spent the last couple months doing Weight Watchers and has had a lot of success. I will be at her wedding and would like to look in better shape than I am now.

My excuses are always that I run out of time and energy. I work 8am-5pm M-F and my hour-long lunch break is picking up 2 kids (1 from high school and 1 from elementary school). I also get them up and drop them off at school before I head to work. My mother-in-law is currently residing in my home - uninvited and over welcoming her stay - and I have to clean after 5 people who refuse to help out. Yes... my mother-in-law refuses to help with household chores - other than her own laundry. Our 1st grader is below standards on reading so I spend the evening helping her with reading and spelling words. The 15 year old is pretty "self-sufficient" but has recently acquired her learner's permit so obviously wants to go out driving Smile So, I have little to no spare time.

My membership at a local gym is getting dusty. And, by all means, I am not complaining about the idea of being a parent (I am a step-mom to the kiddos as my wonderful hubby has custody of 2 beautiful girls) I am just frustrated at my lack of motivation. I need to find a healthy approach to dieting and I need to become friends with the gym again.

I am considering re-starting Atkins (I failed miserably on my last attempt) Weight Watchers or Body by Vi. Funds are limited but I know health is a very vital part of living!! Smile I need some advice on how to get back on track!

Exercise music - what are you listening to?
Pink, Eminem, Static Cycle, Black Eyed Peas, Linkin Park, Nickelback... these seem to top my workout tunes!

Wii Games - Any suggestions?
Hello! Just curious to see if anyone has been using a Wii fitness game/program. Which one and how do you like it?

My family received a Wii for Christmas and I have been debating on the a Zumba or Dance program.
