I have spent a few days on the newbie thread so its time to come here because this time Im in it for the long haul. Here is a copy of my intro blurb from the newbie thread. I title this thread the time machine because I am trying to turn back time and return the fit me that once was. Okay, here’s my story (everybody’s got one). Since Oct 23, I have lost 21 lbs. That’s the good news. The bad news is I have 75-80 more to go. And did I mention that I have lost and regained that 20 lbs about 4 times in the last 3 years. But this time I am trying to do things differently. Usually at this point (2-3 months into the diet) I get fed up or bored, or worn down or injured or something that knocks me off track, then 3-4 months later, I am back where I was or worse. So here is what is different this time. Instead of letting that happen at this point, I am ramping things up. I am actively seeking additional motivation points and setting small reachable goals (baby steps to use a stupid movie quote) That’s why I am here.
