Ok guys, I'm just your average over-weight Texas girl. I love food! I love finding new places to try and new recepies for my honey to cook for me (he cooks, I clean...awesomesauce!!)

My problem is that I'm 30 now and I've gained weight to the point that now it's affecting my health. I don't have anything seriously wrong NOW, but my thyroid is a little off and a couple of other problems that are EASILY prevented/taken care of if I just get down to a healthy weight.

Soooo...I downloaded this lovely little app on my phone and it brought me HERE! I'm hoping that with the community here and my friend from work I'll be able to keep the motivation to lose the weight.

I always seem to start at full blast and kind of fizzle out in less than a month. I'm hoping that with some motivation and accountability I'll be able to get down to the 135lbs (about 61kg) that I was told (by a doctor) is a good weight for my body type. I've been that low before, but not since high school. I'd just be happy at this point reaching the 150lb (68kg) mark though.

Add me if you'd like a slightly crazy, definately smart-mouthed, Texas girl on your side of the weight battle! ^ _ ^

Wii Fit
My friend from work has a Wii and says that she enjoys the Biggest Loser software. She says it's a very good work out too.

I've never owned a Wii, but I have the xBox Kinect and it works fairly well. I've tried Dance Masters (hated the music so I took it back) and I own Your Shape: Fitness Evolved and it's good. It actually tells you what you are doing wrong so that you don't hurt yourself with bad form or something.

I actually went to a gym though for the first time yesterday (I've always been very intimidated by gyms) and had more actual FUN than I thought I would. Of course it was a "girls only" gym so I didn't have to be conscientious around any guys and I went with a friend from work, but if you can find a gym like that maybe it would help. My friend pointed out (when I told her that I was worried about the other people) that no one at the gym is paying any attentiontion to you what-so-ever. They are there to work out themselves, not judge others.
