A picture of what I looked like thin twenty years ago is on my vision wall..it has inspired me to loose 75 lbs these last 14 months and will continue to inspire me until I reach my goal weight.

"If you limit your calorie intake, you will not have enough energy to work out and your metabolism will slow down. " Not a very good advice - if you eat the same you will never get any results because exercise alone does not use many calories and there is a big temptation to eat more because you exercise. Exercise AND limiting your calories is the way to go.
Hi i like question 1 on forgetting what u looked like in high school bc ur. Older now and when u do lose the weight u wont look like U did back then anyway.forget about the past and only think of how U will feel when u get down to ur goal now. I quit smoking Dec.11th 2011 and i also quit drinking diet coke about a week and a half ago And i feel really good about getting rid of my 2 bad habbits. I want to lose 30lbs. by June.before my 55th Birthday. Have a great week.:)
This article really spoke to me. I especially appreciated #1, make new memories. I had been beating myself up for falling out of the exercise routine and comparing myself to a former exercising in shape self so this advice is timely, thank you.
Plus I won a Spark exercise DVD on the points spin - what could be better?
I'm not a soccer mom; while some of these tips areare universal and helpful, this article seems geared towards a very specific audience. I'm usually impressed by SP articles and how applicable they are. This one seems lacking in that sense.
I have recently incorporated daily walks into my routine. I decided to put myself first on my list of priorities. I am hoping that this shows up on the scale. If not, I plan to build my exercise little by little until it does show up.
