My name is Emily, I'm 5'4" and right now I weigh right about 230 pounds (my goodness does this sound like an AA meeting or what?!)
Anyway, life has been full of changes in the past month or so what with moving half of halfway across the country, getting a new job in a new area of my field and making some good decisions about what I need to do to keep myself safe, sane and healthy.
I've always struggled with my weight, but my goal after moving to Kentucky was to slowly ask more of myself in regards to actually DOING something about it. This is kind of scary for me because in high school I made some poor decisions about how to lose weight and went overboard into some unhealthy habits that could have gotten me into a lot of trouble if my friends hadn't realized what was going on.
So for the first month my goals were just to decrease the number of times I eat fast food and to increase my activity level. I've significantly cut the number of times I eat fast food to about 2 meals a week. I've increased my activity level by setting a goal of taking the stairs at work (I work in the rehab department on the 4th floor of a hospital) for every trip except my first trip into the office in the morning, and up/down to the cafeteria for lunch. I'm doing pretty good at that one, with probably a 90% success rate, but the biggest improvement is that I can now climb all 5 flights of stairs in the parking garage in 90% humidity and carry on a conversation at the same time!
Now that I'm on to a new month, the new goals are to eat 3-5 small meals a day (I tend to forget to eat and then binge around 9pm) and join the gym at work and start using my membership at minimum 2 times per week.
I'm hoping that finding a community where there are people going through the same thing will help keep me grounded and sane, as well as motivated!

thank you for stopping by this community. It is new but I hope that soon it will get some membership.
My name is Nikki
I am 5'4 and wiegh 180 pounds
I have always been curvy but this is a little more then neccersarry. I have struggled with my weight most of my life but this is the first time I have let it get this out of control. I have tried the trends, the diet pills and they all failed me. Besides it is not worth risking my health on any of it. This time it is time to do it right and that means treating myself well and taking the time out each day to excercise and eat correctly. It sounds so overwhelming sometimes but I just need to remember to take it slowly. I did not get to this level of weight and out of shapeness in a week, or even a month so it is going to take more than a week or a month to fix it.
My plan. I am dieting. I am staying away from lots of high carb foods and sugary things. I am eating four small meals a day and drinking lots of water and tea.
Everyother day play on my new BoFlex for complete body weight training.
Do Cardio for at least 30 minutes a day and not to exceed 45 minutes.
It is difficult to discuss this and sometimes I get embaressed but I know that other people are just as overwhelmed and embaressed. I am also trying to lift my self esteem. Everyday I pamper myself in some small way to show myself I am worth it. It is not enough to diet and excercise you have to believe you are worth it. I will take time out for me.
If this forum catches on I will make it a paid account so that we can have more options.
Good luck everyone.
