Beginner here. The food is a little easier than exercise, which is my biggest hurdle....But I really like this team and hope to learn a lot so I can do a lot.

It will get better KBella! I hated doing the whole gym thing for a really long time, all those gym buffs were intimidating to me, and I am a Marine! If you have a pal or someone that cna show you how to do stuff to incorporate into your work out program, I am sure things will start turning around for you. If you ever need something, feel free to let me know!

Thanks Disc! I will be poking around and writing down some exercises so I can mix mine up in a few weeks.

I did track today, and I will be tracking my food today as well, but only because I have a very rare and precious few days off from work. Unusual to have 2 together this time of year. Ordinarily I'm just too time crunched to track. I figure it's more important to actually DO the workouts and eat well. Getting the time to actually track...well that's just gravy.

I started strength training about four months ago with a trainer. I have learned a lot about how my body works and I have learned to enjoy the feeling of my muscles moving as I work them. Now the diet! That is the challenge.

Welcome! I love my cardio too (well, really, my dog loves it more) but it is ONLY through strength training have I changed the shape of my body and re-vamped my metabolism.

Good on you for being honest, and for taking the plunge to try something you have previously not enjoyed.

I love strength workouts. Cardio is so mindnumbingly boring. With ST I do the same thing for less than a minute really, then it's on to something different! :)

Hello everyone,

SM informed of this group after my public confession of "hating" strength training. I am looking forward to incorporating exercises and reading your valuable input.

I am about 60lbs overweight (Freshman 40-50, then some). I like cardio, but it is not and has not produced desirable results. I am young (25) but even at my most "saintly" times of proper diet and exercise it has been very hard to lose weight. I will blame a slow metabolism and of course my lack of consistency! My longest streak was a year of best practices and losing a mere 10 lbs, gained 20 back :-/. I took a long break, maybe 1.5 years. I have been exercising now, "on and off" now for about 4 months (my longest break being 3 weeks) and are ready to get serious.

Thank you for reading my rant. I wanted to be honest with myself and honest to the group about my good intentions on joining the group!

Can't wait to read posts and get some feedback!

Celia
