A Challenge and Change

I'm 26 years old, and the highest weight count I had was 281. I'm down to 259, which feels good, but I obviously need to keep going. I've tried weight loss before, and struggled with keeping it at bay my whole life. When I was younger, I played sports, cheered, and kept active, so I could stave the fat off. Once I graduated college, I got a job that is either at my desk, sitting in meetings, or visiting homes in the community (where I sit alot). The job is in the child welfare field, so the ...
I'm 26 years old, and the highest weight count I had was 281. I'm down to 259, which feels good, but I obviously need to keep going. I've tried weight loss before, and struggled with keeping it at bay my whole life. When I was younger, I played sports, cheered, and kept active, so I could stave the fat off. Once I graduated college, I got a job that is either at my desk, sitting in meetings, or visiting homes in the community (where I sit alot). The job is in the child welfare field, so the hours are not the norm, and the stress level can tend to be on the higher side. I gained about 30 pounds my last year of college, and then 70 more in the four years after that. I want to be active and healthier again, because I remember what that feels like. I want to believe that I can look good again. My husband and I are also talking about having a baby, and there's no way I want to be this heavy and pregnant.

Hey there,
Thanks for your comment and question on my blog. I hope you're enjoying the January Jumpstart! As for the bonus videos, my understanding is that in week 2, you're supposed to choose any 2 extra videos to add to the regular sequence. You can look under the "Articles and Videos" tab at the top of your start page to find lots of videos. I, personally, like the ones Coach Nicole does. I think they are really easy to adjust to your own level. The ones I tried were not Coach Nicole's. They were Qi Gong, which is a little like Tai Chi. It wasn't difficult, but it was hard for me to understand. The other one I tried was a kind of cardio bootcamp 20 minute workout, but I just felt like I was being yelled at, and I didn't enjoy it. I think you're best off by watching a few minutes of the video first to see if you like it. There are plenty to choose from. Best of luck! emoticon
