Hi there!

First of .. congrats on the four months! That is some feat itself... I hear the first few weeks are the hardest.. Well done!

You're definetely right... we should listen to our bodies.. they know what's best... and taking is slow and steady is the best way to win the race...

Good luck and emoticon

Hello, all! I am here to beat the yo-yo thing once & for all. My past habits have taken a toll on my health and I am here to learn to take it slow & steady, not beat myself up for every perceived failure, and to take credit/reward myself when I hit milestones. I've been exercising regularly now for about 4 months and have made some diet changes, but I find I really need help with the nutrition piece specific to being pre-diabetic with high triglycerides (my body is highly sensitive and resistant to change, so I am learning to observe better and trying to learn PATIENCE).

My head's been in the game the whole 4 months, but I've had to slow down & drop weight several times while my hips, knees, and lower back have been complaining (how dare you make me do this)? I also have a weird "click" in my upper left arm (not muscular, not in the joint, but about halfway between the shoulder & elbow). Whaaaaaaaa! I look forward to the day my body stops acting like the princess & the pea. My brain is in drill sgt mode - suck it up! Body's not having it. I'll be looking for inspiration on those days!
