I was clicking through information to try and get motivated and came across a name I recognized - Fitday. In the past I exercised about 2-3 times a week, circuit training, a very strenuous class, but I think not enough for me to do anything other than maintain, then I got sick just after Christmas and never went back to the gym (until today...I walked two miles on the track!!), since then have put on about 20lbs on top of the extra weight I was already carrying. I'm now 225 lbs 5ft 9 in, 55 yrs old and finding it very hard to shift weight. I feel i eat healthy, I'm a vegetarian but do eat to many carbs and can't find enough lean protein which I think is my main problem. i don't like eggs, and there's just so much tofu you can eat!
i really want to stick at this, but sometimes just get so busy and forget to log food, that's when things get out of hand and I eat more than I realize.
