Hi, I've been trying to loose weight since a long time.

I never used a scale and figured it's enough to track my weight by fitting into the same pants all those years.. Then I bought a scale and SURPRISE: My weight was so much higher than I expected it to be! I had to realize I'm REALLY overweight!
I can't believe how distorted my vision was seeing myself in the mirror!
I started tracking my calorie intake, stopped smoking and started to exercise: running 1-2 times/week. I also started to go horseback riding again. So I lost about 30 pounds in one year.

Meanwhile I started a new job and don't have the time to track my calories everyday anymore. It really helped me to loose weight in the first place though!

I also started to do some yoga on 2-3 days a week in the evenings and if it's only for 10 minutes. After just one week I could do push-up's again!
It's not only important to do cardio but strength training really as helped form my body.
