    fitbyforty's first ranger challenge

    I started off strong in the last challenge, but fizzled after I tweaked my back. I'm gonna give this another go, what do I have to lose? I work at home, I am morbidly obese, and several years ago I injured my back in a wreck. I have some challenges, but I'm addressing my weaknesses and trying to change my daily habits to match the life I want to live. I'll post my stats once I weigh in. Long term goals 1. normal weight by 40 (2 and a half years from now) 2. do a spartan race by 40 Challenge Goals 1. Drink only water and zero calorie sports drinks. 2. No fast food or calorie dense foods. 3. Count calories. 4. Movement daily: gym 2-3 times, plus yoga, stretching, body weight exercises, walking, or geocaching on other days.

    going to basically repeat this challenge. I started strong but then fell into old habits.

    fitbyforty's first challenge

    I haven't been back to the gym, but I did start geocaching again and have been walking a lot the last few days. My oldest graduates this weekend so life should get back to normal after that.
  4. Hi everyone! This is my first challenge here. I'm a 37 year old mom of two. I'm at my heaviest weight to date (260 lbs). I love lifting weights and I started with starting strength, but after a car wreck, a foot injury, and gaining weight back I let my gym membership go and continued to gain. It's been a couple of years since I was eating well and exercising, and I can feel it. My back hurts easily (partially from the wreck, partially from the weight) and I am really out of shape. I am morbidly obese and I sit all of the time because of my job, so exercising and eating better is a life or death situation for me. I'd really like to turn things around before it gets even more difficult to do so. Long term goals - lose 125 lbs by the time I'm 40 (in a little over 2 and a half years) and be living a more active and healthy life. - participate in spartan races by the time I turn 40. Challenge Goals - only drink water, coffee, Gatorade zero (no cokes or juice) - Go to the gym at least 3 times a week - no fast food - take breaks from my work to stretch throughout the day - journal daily
