I've recently returned to fitday after a long hiatus. I first started using this site more than 10 years ago.
A lot has happened since then, and now I find myself 20+ pounds above my healthy weight range and 50 pounds heavier than I was 10 years ago.
We're struggling with infertility (again), and I know dropping the weight and being more active will help.
When we were successful with our daughter, I was in the same spot. I dropped 20 pounds, and got pregnant. Maybe it was coincidence, but I don't think so.
So here I am hoping to join your group and resolve to clean up my act in the new year.
I actually started Friday when we found out our latest attempt to get pregnant failed.
My daily health goals going forward...
Keep calories to 1600-1700 per day
No sugars outside of whole fruits and limited whole grains
Work out five days a week
Drink more water
Yoga and/or meditate every day
1/1/14 -- 186 pounds
Immediate Goal -- 160 pounds
Longterm Sustainable Goal -- 145-150 pounds
