6 months in .... Newbie

Monday, July 20, 2009

Someone on livejournal.com recomended this site to me after posting a blog about having to quit weight watchers. Im sad that I had to quit because even though I dident get too much information or support from the meetings (I think they could do better there) I did get the accountablity of being weighed in and the reset button factor. Its weird, I could do really bad for a week and maybe gain a little or maintain, and then once I set foot into that meeting and got weighed in, all the badness and lack of control that was associated with the previous week seemed to be washed away. Weird I know, but I geuss its just another one of thouse mental things that just happen.

Now Im stuck doing it on my own, Im still following the weight watchers plan because it works for me and I dont have to pay anything to keep eating the way I was eating before.

I like Sparkpeople.com so far, only problem is that its almost overwhelming. There is alot of information up here.... alot to do. I think It might take me a few days to discover all there is and exactly how to use the sight. I can use all the motivation I can get though so I will take it. :-)

I want to start doing more strength exercises along with the cardio I am already doing. Im starting out with leg exercises, squats, and crunches every other day. I really want to be able to fit into smaller clothing. My belly seems to be really resistant to everything I do and its making me look kinda odd. Everything eles has shrunk alot more and my hips and belly are just hanging on and looking as bad as ever in my oppion. I know that this is going to be my problem area and Im really going to have to work hard to get it in check. I need to start with getting all the muscle under the fat toned now so I dont maybe have to work so hard when I get all the fat gone.... plus maybe I will be able to fit into the size 20s I just bought comfortably.

    Way to go on your commitment to getting healthy! I know spark people is overwhelming at first, but I think you'll find it very useful once you find your way around.
