This is where I am. I'm almost 50 and considered obese. When I was a teenager my parents used to think that I was anorexic because I was so skinny and hardly ate. So what happened to me?
I don't exercise. I don't eat properly. I suffer from depression. I have no motivation. And I hurt all over. Something has to change.
Karen (my sister) suggested I join this site so we can help each other stay motivated. I haven't seen her on yet but at least it has gotten me here.
I've started taking the train right downtown to work instead of getting off a station earlier and then taking the Metro to work. It means I have to walk an extra km twice a day. I did it on Wednesday because the Metro was down so I walked to get the train home. Then yesterday I decided to actually come to work that way since it wasn't too hard the day before. I forgot that going to the train from work is all down hill. Coming to work from the train is all uphill.
But ... I did it again today. I plan to keep doing this. I don't manage to get any more exercise in so I figure this is a start.
I have over 50 pounds to lose. I gotta start somewhere.
