I burn about 200 calories at Curves. My friend is a little taller, burns closer to 300 (grrr) but she still has weight to lose while I am maintaining.

I started w/ the nutrition tracker and counted my calories. I then started power walking a mile, 5 days a week. Then upped the mileage and basically walked off the weight. I also joined Curves too, mainly for my strength training.

Took me 7 months to lose 23# and I have been maintaining now for a year. I am working on firming up some areas and started running 3 x's a week in July. The couch to 5K program is great, really brings you along nicely.

Welcome to the team and, yep, I know this alllll too well too emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

It can be frustrating because it is a little harder to lose weight when you're short. This is a great group because we all "get it". I try to view it as a challenge, one that I am capable of overcoming. (I am also older- 54- with the slower metabolism that comes with age) Welcome and good luck!

Welcome. Yes, it does irk me that taller people burn more calories. And being short also means that fewer extra pounds make you look fatter.

Hi Everyone- I'm new to this and I'm looking to social networking for support. My body has become something I'm very sensitive about and I'm ready for changes. I have had so much difficulty in the past with fitness and nutrition, thanks to my short frame. Don't you hate it when your taller friends do the same workout as you, and burn MORE calories? I get the short end of the stick, no pun intended.

So what tips do you have? How do you stay motivated and what has been the most effective fitness and nutrition plan for you?
