Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Things were great for me, I was at my goal weight and maintaining, and boom, now I've got two kids. :) So I have to work to get the weight back off! This is the second time in my life where I've actually lost weight consciously. The first time, I exercised once, now I'm changing my lifestyle completely.
I like to say I've always had a love affair with food. Always thinking, what is next to eat? So much so that I totally considered becoming a chef and would if I had a culinary school closer to home. This passion, helped me pack on lots of pounds and now I'm having fun taking them off.
I'm in the best shape I've ever been in and am looking foward to the end results.
It really used to be about weight, but more and more as I age, it is about feeling good, physically, not feeling sluggish or joint pain. Not to mention feeling good about myself.
Watching what I eat, trying to stay in the 1200 to 1500 calorie range and burning 500 calories a day 5 times per week. I do not deny myself anything, if I'm craving and I mean craving a brownie I make some but only have one.

Self Challenge is done by the Self magazine. They provide cardio & strengthing training routines & workouts to do. You track you weight and measurements on the site. They have the Fitness & Food Diary trackers to use. There is actually a prize (an Cybrex Arc Trainer). I'm not sure how the prize is won. I joined to use for motivation, but so far not a fan of it. I'm using it now to get the strengthing training workouts off it, in order to create a varity in my workouts.

Meeting my goals with the "Slow but steady does it" mentality. I'll increase my pacing in a few weeks. I joined the Self Challenge 2010 on www.self.com. It's okay...but the cardio for the first week of the Challenge is ridiculous.
It helps a lot that my husband is also my fitness buddy. We go to the gym together and discuss what we are doing and eating.
