I am an outdoorsy person especially in the summer months. I like snowhoeing, walking, skating and beer. I.have 2 dogs....a yellow lab and a black lab. I work at a large company as a Benefits/Employee Relations Manager and really enjoy working hard. This makes it more difficult to exercise so I'm working on that. I joined this because I need something to report into to keep me on track. I can lose the weight, but NEVER keep it off. Here's to it being different this time!! Cheers!

Bit of advice please
When I tore mine the bike was the recommended exercise for me.Then built in squats and leg lifts on weight machine. However...I was in a cast for 6 weeks and then started this physio. So not sure this would be recommended at post 1 week but my knee healed and I didn't need surgery. Smile Good luck!

Trying to manage my weight again...this time it will be different!
I have lost weight in the past only to have it creep back on.

I'm doing things different this time and I want to hear how other people are over-coming the "keep it off" challenge.

My new things are:
1) You hear people talk about this crazy thing called exercise? I never really had to work to lose weight, I just ate healthier.....well, now that don't work anymore so I am more active than I have ever been.
2) No more beating myself up...if I have some chips, that's ok! Just not a whole big bag. I used to think if I had some bad food it was a waste of time to exercise...now I exercise because I had the bad food.
3) Accepting my body for what it is. I will never have a tiny ass, so too bad.....it is what it is.

Positive thinking can be really powerful....like yourself for who you are!

Cheers to you on your journey towards a healthier life!!!
