Fitness Minutes: 12,771

My Goals:
My goal is to lose enough weight so that I dont feel like people stare at me when I walk into a room, so that I can sit and walk without rolling, to ease the pain of arthritis and to just feel like the old, thin me but better. :}
I tried to wear a little heal but my feet hurt tooo much. EASE BACK PAIN!

My Program:
I have started to watch what I eat, try to eat enough (I tend to skip or not eat enough) and move my body more than just what I do at work. (Thankfully its not a desk job)
Eating healthy is a difficult thing for me to continue. I NEED my friends.

I have:
Wii Fit Plus
yoga ball
hand weights
Wii Sports Resort
My Fitness Coach 2
Walk It Out Wii
Biggest Loser Challenge Wii
... now if I will just USE them all!

Personal Information:
Im a Christian, 40-something single mom from NE Indiana with 3 kids (20, 15 and 10 ). Im 5'6" and over 200 lbs. I have arthritis in all my joints. Im pretty much a loner and was sexually abused as a child. I have no close family or really close friends. Battling with depression.. need uplifting friends :)

Other Information:
We have 4 cats and I love photography, scrapbooking and computers. I dont like to cook or shop for groceries at all. I tend to skip meals. This makes it hard to eat healthy. Kids are extremely picky with food too. What kid besides mine wont eat things like watermelon?

    Hi, I was just stopping by to say hey and see how things are going for you lately. Good I hope. Do you have any plans for the weekend? I just hope to get outside and do something in the yard. Maybe tomorrow I will head into the nature preserve behind my house and go for a walk. I have seen a beaver and a cyote out there, so sometimes I am a little leary, but I think I know where their dens are so I'll just go far out of the way. Have a wonderful mothers day! Hope to talk to you soon! Julia emoticon

    Hello there...

    I noticed that you haven't been very active recently. I understand this. Life gets busy and your own needs and wants may fall by the weigh side. However, please know that I was thinking about you today and hoping that you're doing well! I am here for you - if you want to just send me a message or if you need help getting back on track - whatever you need; just send me a message!!!

    Your co-leader of the 50 pound challenge team!

    Hey Mel, how are you. I know and understand you weight loss concerns and problems, I deal with the same things everyday. I hope we can encourage one another. Life is full of obstacles, but we can overcome those, we have the Lord on our side.
