I am 25 and just trying to loose a few extra pounds to look good for the beach this summer. I am 140 now and would like to get down to 120. I was doing really well in the fall, down to 129, but for the past couple of months I have been hitting the pizzas and fast food. The biggest problem I have is getting my exercise in. I hate doing it, but Im just going to take it one day at a time. Hope fully being accountable here will translate to getting it done at home.

yesterday did 40 min AM walk - I had all intentions to go to on a run but ended up in IKEA for 2 HOURS!! then followed by an hour and a 1/2 of lugging dining room table and chairs and mirror and knick knacks haha. woops!

I am throwing myself a little apartment warming party so i thought it would be nice if people had a place to sit! I am making the food so yummy yummy healthy stuff only! veggies hummus shrimp edemame! im so excited

cindyshine - the walking really isnt bad at all! Everyone thought i was CRAZY parking my car there and that i would never do it! but its been about a month now and Im not giving up! In the AM I stop and grab my coffee and enjoy my neighborhood and in the PM it gives me time to decompress and get ready for making dinner, cleaning, the dog etc etc! I def recommend it !

ok that post got a little long ... hope you are all having a great day, it is beautiful here in Philly Smile

woohooo!! ran 4 miles yesterday, 60 min total with warm up and stretching! yes! add up the morning 20 min walk and the 20 min evening walk 100 min!

40 min walk this morning so far!

What am I doing to improve my overall health? Using this website! I have started making choices everyday that wont necessarily make me thinner, but will make me healthier! Instead of diet soda i have water, instead of full eggs, I have egg whites, when I drink tea I conciously look for antioxidents, whole grain instead of white bread, more veggies and fruit I have parked my car a mile from my house so I get 2 miles of walking in a day! It's amazing how much better I feel when I do all of these things, even though the waist band might not be shrinking like crazy, my confidence is growing and I think that is what really matters. I know I am doing what I can to be healthy, not just thin. and i know it is working b/c I have switch others to come along with me!
