Default Hello - Newbie joined today! :-)

Hi All..
My name is Helen-
Im in Virginia.. and I am starting a reducing plan a.k.a. (Diet) today

The site says I am (obese) at 50 pounds overweight- hmm?
thought of myself as (overweight)... (obese) sounds harsh..
but whatever it takes! I am tired of being unfit.. I am an active young 47.
I workout 5+ times a week- Outdoors gal doing lots of things, Kayak, Swim, Bike, Hike, Camp, SnowSki, rollerblade, rollercoasters you name it! But, I packed on an extra 17 pounds in the past year- which has made everything
tight or unwearable..

I was wearing a size 16 nicely- now edging back up to 18- (Not acceptable) especially since I got rid of them all in 2009' swearing to continue to drop to a 12 or 14..

So, Im here doing some (Drastic) losing in the next 30 days.. for a Ski Trip Feb 28. to Utah... (*Cant fit in my expensive Ski Pants comfortably without losing 10-15 pounds) Asap..

But for the long run- I want the #50 off for good!

I am doing my own plan... consits of (Slimfast, Juicing, Fruit/nuts during the day -- and Healthy low-fat Dinners, Salads) Keeping calories < 1500
and Exercise 6 days a week- (ZUMBA, Elyptical, Treadmill, Bike, Weights)
30-45 min cardio in the gym-- or Zumba 1hr class.

So, any comments, suggestions, encouragers, buddies all of the above welcome!! Im gonna need it... THANKS for reading!!
