Smile 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

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!
