Thanks for reading!
I'm 5'4 and over 200 lbs. My goal is to lose 20 pounds by my birthday, December 14th. I know I can do it with a little motivation and common accountability. I've been counting my calories and tracking my steps. I recently had knee surgery so my mobility is limited and my exercise is also limited.
Please feel free to suggest any workouts that would be useful or just drop an encouraging word. If you've had success with a food regimen, please share!
I'm honestly just looking to be healthier one day at a time. I'm open to suggestions, new friends, workout motivators.... anything positive and inspiring really.
We're pulling for you and know that you can it. I can say that God has blessed us with a mind and body that is able to accomplish some amazing things.
I would suggest that you weigh yourself one last time then don't check it again until December. The reason is simple, the scale can give you a negative impression of what's going on with your body.
Stay with your workouts and diet and watch your body change without the scale and be excited about it. Watch what happens.
Sorry about that long post . Be blessed along the ride and welcome to the app.
Just created this team, its purpose is to motivate each other (surprise, surprise... :-)). You're welcome to join! (skimble.com >> log in >> join a team >> MOTIVATION)
I would like to be a workout motivator. I have a hard time myself getting motivated. I am fairly new to all this as well and just need to keep it going. Here's to a healthier life!
You're welcome to join, just sent you the invite
I see you're in . The first team challenge is 6 weeks of push ups (3 times a week) - feel free either to accept or skip it. What are your fitness goals?
sorry to be disorganized today. Last time today I'll barge in on your feed! I don't use the food section of the Workout Trainer app because it didn't allow for easy creation of foods we eat. We cook almost all our meals from scratch, and have recipes accumulated over the decades from overseas that don't fit the profiles. That's why I ended up looking around for other programs that would track diet. Best program for creating the nutrition and calorie counts for our recipes has been My Fitness Pal, and it offers medically sound advice in line with what I saw on Mayo Clinic and similar sites. Also, when tracking activity, I found it hard to get things like tennis matches entered in Workout Trainer, and it was getting perilous for my phone to be put in my pocket during a match. It fell out too many times. MFP takes care of that also. If I didn't have a fitbit, which I got because of the phone problem, I'd use MFP and Workout Trainer. The phone tracks steps well enough.
Good morning. How are you this week? Just wanted to send encouraging words. :-)
