My name is Heather, and I gained about 35 pounds in the last 3 years. I started making an effort to lose some of the weight right after Thanksgiving, and I've lost 10 pounds on my own, but I could see myself slipping back into bad dietary habits. A good friend suggested a calorie tracker as a good way to hold myself accountable, and actually spend some time thinking about the foods I'm eating, and then another friend mentioned this website.
I started doing pilates and yoga about 3 weeks ago and after a lifetime of inactivity, I'm delighted to say that I LOVE it. I'm a member at Studio Blue in NW Portland, and can't say enough nice things about it.
I also joined 24 hour fitness in the Pearl - mostly so I can use the pool, (and hot-tub!) but also because they have group classes in time-slots my studio doesn't, and just having the option to go hit the elliptical machine at any time of the day or night is nice.
The difference between a successful man and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of courage, but rather, a lack of will.
