Good to see you back snorkelfan!

Diving has alot to do with me wanting to stay in shape. it takes alot from me with the heavy tanks and the weights so I decided that no matter what my weight was I needed to be strong and regain my energy! Even when I as at my goal weight a few years ago I was not in great physical shape and still lacked the energy. The working out is making such a difference.

I dunno, Snorkelfan. For me, it was last summer's Mexico trip where I was uncomfortable with all the concrete levels at the villa - step-up, step-down, up again... Then the lack of total ease under the water - where I've always been a fish.

I played hard that trip and came home about 10 pounds lighter and feeling 100 times better. That got me going, and about 30 pounds later, I'm not looking back.

Another diver and I talked at length during that trip. She'd lost about 50 pounds over the past couple of years. I'd have never guessed it. She was athletic and energetic - always taking out the kayak or strapping on her walking sandals in search of adventure.

She said she'd come to the conclusion that she HAD to find ways to work out at home so she could sustain the physicality to dive as she wants. It was a bellweather for my fitness.

When my drive flags, I often hear Peggy saying, "I had to find SOME exercise to do at home that would keep me in diving shape." That's a major motivation to me, too, and I push on.

I hope you find your starting pushemoticon and join us in that dive-ready state very soon! It's the best thing I've ever done - still - after 18 years and about 1300 dives.

it's been a long time since I've posted anything on this site. I find it ironic that this is the team I have been neglecting the most, since snorkeling is my #1 reason to want to lose weight. I want to feel healthy enough to have the energy to snorkel and not be embarrassed. I want to experience diving.I have been so frustrated and unmotivated lately. I am so angry with myself. What's it going to take to get me going??????
