Hi everyone! My name is Alexis and I'm 25 and looking to lose about 50 pounds. I have a son who is 8 so I plenty of time during the day to workout while he is in school .

I'm 5.2 and as of today I weigh 176.4. Looking for tips, advice and motivation. Follow me and I'll follow back :)

P.S.- Does anyone use Nike Training Club? I installed that yesterday before finding this app so now I'm trying to see which one is a better choice for me.

Thanks!

I'm in transition. I'm a fast food junkie but I'm learning to ear healthy. Breakfast lately has been a bowl of Special K and lunch has been a ham sandwich or turkey sandwich. Dinner last night was cream cheese on a bagel.

Dinner has to definitely more than that try eating grilled chicken, veggies of your choice the healthiest way to lose weight is to speed up your metabolism by eating small healthy meals and snacks every 2 to 3 hours it's like putting logs on a fire this way your body will burn your food faster and not store it as fat
