At first I thought I just wanted to lose 20 lbs. Now that I've done that I realized I can do more.
Then I thought I just wanted to get to that number that would take me out of the 'overweight' category.
Now I know I want to give myself a 10 to 15 lb margin away from being on the border of healthy and overweight. I began my weight loss journey February 2009 and hope to reach my goal by the end of the year.
Right now I go to the gym 4 to 5 days a week. I mainly focus on cardio but I know I need to incorporate strength training soon.
My name is Tina and 45 years old. It's never too late to do right by yourself and for yourself.
Thank you for your comment on my blog. Yes, I am fortunate to live in a safe area. It's not without crime (no urban area is!) but I feel safe during daylight and evenings, though I wouldn't walk around late-late alone... anywhere! Thanks for the reminder.
