Hi. First day here :)
 
Hello everyone, my name is Kyo and I am 19. I just found this website today and I am liking what I have seen.

Since October 2010 I have went from weighing around 140-150 pounds to 180 pounds, due to being laid off from my seasonal job working in road construction.
I have tried a couple times to get my weight back on track before I become diabetic. I have not officially been diagnosed, but it's genetic in my family for those who are over weight. Anyways, I will be returning to work any day within this month and it will be a lot easier to lose the weight because I won't be sitting on my butt all day. But even then, I really need to eat better. To put it simply, my goal is to weigh 130 before I am 21 (august 2012) and to eat better and be happy and healthy. Wish me luck :p

Welcome to FitDay Kyo. There's no need to sit on your butt until your job starts, try walking or something else to pass the time. Good luck with it.

Welcome! :)

I second what Mike said. Don't wait until you're working to be active. Take advantage of the time on your hands and walk, ride a bike, go hiking, etc. I tend to do better with exercise when I'm working less because I have more energy to dedicate to it.

Best of luck to you, and keep us updated on your progress. Use fitday and all it has to offer... it really is a wonderful resource! :)
