Just Realized I Am Getting Old and Fat!!

Like many people, the weight snuck up on me :( I woke up one morning and realized I was fat and REALLY out of shape. I used to trail ride and dance and was very active, but over the last few years I've done less and less of that. At 44 I don't want to be "old". I feel like if I could get my weight under control I will feel so much better - now I just need to get it done!!

Fitness Minutes: 1,395

My Goals:
My goal is to have most of this weight gone by the Summer of 2013.

My Program:
I am going to eat better and exercise at least 10 minutes a day. As I get more fit, I would like to take a class in Zumba or some other dance based program and learn to do some yoga for flexibility.

Other Information:
I love to dance. I'm learning to drive a Corvette on the race track and also on the auto cross tracks - I love going fast.

@ GYMRAT - I am doing GREAT. My boyfriend bought me a gym membership and is funding a personal trainer so that I get the best possible result. We also walk together on the days I am too busy to get to the gym. My endurance has improved immensely - last night we walked for an hour at a pretty fast clip. That is way up from barely being able to walk 10 minutes at a turtles pace!! I've lost 6 pounds in the last 4 weeks. We are eating healthier & feeling so much better!! I am amazed at how much more energy I have.

Thank you so much for checking on me :) I have a long way to go yet, but if I feel this good after losing the first 6 pounds I can't imagine how I will feel when the other 49 are gone!!

Well, how is it going? Are you sticking to it? Don't stop now, even with holidays approaching. You can do it. One day at a time is all it takes.

Welcome to SparkPeople!

My name is Sarah and Iíve been a member of this site off and on for a few years, and I do love it. I was here a few years back and lost 20 pounds, then went away and stopped using the site and gained all that weight back.

I have tried other diets and found that what I truly love about SparkPeople is the community, I believe it really helps keep you on track. Utilize the community here, add friends, join teams and challenges and post to the message boards.

Best wishes on your journey!

Oh, sweetie we are just getting better. The problem is we often take care of others before we take care of ourselves... so ... save yourself first and you will have more energy to take care of others... Here is a link to Spark people tutorials that might help...
