Ack!!! Girls, it was worse than I thought! I've gained 12 lbs back of the 20 I lost last year. Here's my numbers:

Current weight: 209
Goal weight: 175
Short term goal: 199
Height: 5'9"
Strategy: portion control, better food choices, significantly lowering carbs and sugars.

I went to a Mom's group meeting today and the topic was physical fitness and nutrition. Just what I needed, especially since there was all kinds of terribly yummy, fattening food set out. I did "ok" with my choices, but they could have been better. Anyway, this woman has a website, so I'm going to check it out. I got motivated to move more. I would LOVE to be able to walk/jog with my digs every morning before DH leaves for work.....but he gets up SOOO darn early, and I have a sleep disorder, so it's even harder for me to roll out.

I always over commit and then fail. So I am going to commit to getting up early with the dogs Tuesday's and Thursday's. Wish me luck!

Current Weight: 179.4 (not *quite* as bad as I feared but still the most I've ever weighed not pregnant!)
Goal Weight: 145 (back in college & my 20's I was 115-125 but I don't see that as a realistic goal - especially now at 40!!)
Short Term Goal: 170
Height: 5'4"
Strategy: Better food choices overall, stop eating the kids $*@&% Halloween candy & get back into an exercise routine

Kara,

I have a similar issue with finding the time to get regular exercise. I like to do things at the same time every day, but with my husband on rotating shifts, that is impossible.

I gave in today and tried to jog with Bennett...not my favorite thing to do. I like exercise to be my "me" time everyday. Hopefully I can get on a more regular schedule.

Have fun walking your pooches!

Can I join this now? What do I do?

I only have about 7 lbs to lose but that last 7 lbs is really hard!
