Companion Posted December 15, 2014 Report Share Posted December 15, 2014 Just about to get started. 38 years old, female, 5'5", and in the 175-180 range, generally speaking. Pretty much all blubber. I've just gotten back on Weight Watchers, which in the past I have found easy and effective for weight loss, but not necessarily for getting healthier. For now I'll stay on it, as points are an easy short-hand for calories, fat, fiber, etc. I'm already gluten free, but going paleo might be a challenge with my carb-loving spouse. I have some background with weight lifting when I was a teenager, which I enjoyed. I have no issue with the idea of bulking up a bit. Muscles are sexy! I have some home gear - I enjoy the weight machine and loathe the elliptical. I'd like to get the hang of the basic bodyweight routine before the next challenge starts. I reviewed the video today and will start tomorrow. I'm positive there will be loud bitching and moaning. Goals? Everyone says setting goals is important. Meh. Nothing specific or spectacular. I love to travel and that's hard when you get winded easily. I want to reduce my risk of disease and injury. Just general things. What's working against me? Same as anyone else. Sweet tooth, no grasp on portion sizes, and lazy as the day is long. Nothing special! Need to get ready, never know when the Doctor will show up. Ready, set, go! 2 Quote Battle Log Challenges: 1, 2 Link to comment
