Red face hey guys and gals!

Hi! My name is Cyd and I am a half-noob. I used to use fit day a few years ago and kind of gave up. Now that I have gained even MORE weight than I was then, I am back to tracking what I eat, how much I exercise, etc.

I am very sensitive about my weight, because I grew up very skinny and fit. Once I got to college, it all went downhill. I went from 120 lbs in 2003 to 195 lbs 7 years later...

I'm ready to get back to my cute pre-college body, despite my love for couch potato-ing, video games, alcohol, and food food food (all factors in my fast weight gain)!!! I do not believe in "diets" because I am stubborn and tend to rebel against myself. I just plan on moderating my portions better, not eating bad things AS OFTEN, and have started the couch to 5k plan (it's amazing!) last week. I even bought new running shoes!

I am very, very out of shape and the couch to 5k plan is already kicking my a$$.. but I am finally determined! My loving boyfriend is helpful and doing it with me, but he is super skinny and can eat whatever he wants (not fair!!!!). So, despite his support, I have come here for support from people who know what it's like to be out of shape, overweight, and determined to get healthier!!

Cyd, welcome! Good for you avoiding "diets"--they've never worked in the long run for me, either. A healthy eating plan that maintains a decent calorie deficit while keeping you satisfied and meeting your nutritional needs (perhaps with the help of vitamis/supplements if needed) and some modest exercise is the answer IMHO.

47 M 5'8"

May 4, 2010...... 440? lbs. (Start FitDay Size 60 Jeans)
June 19, 2010.... 393 lbs. (First Weigh-in)
June 19, 2011.... 229 lbs. (164 lbs. gone in one year :-)
Current Weight... 185 lbs. (Size 36 Jeans)

Next Goal 169 lbs. (07/04/12)
Ultimate Goal 165 lbs. (12/31/12)

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.

Good for you for starting the Couch to 5K program. A lot of people have good things to say in this forum about that.

I have always found that when I exercise, I feel better about myself and in turn I want to eat better so it is easier. I hope you experience this too.

Good luck and I hope you get hooked on running.
