I'm new to FitDay, but I started a lifestyle change almost exactly 3 weeks ago! I'm 23 years old (female, 5'2") and a month ago, I was at my highest weight ever of 210 pounds. I moved into an apartment with my boyfriend--my first apartment ever!--and decided that with my own kitchen, now might be a good time to stop eating McDonald's and pizza rolls all the time and actually start trying to be healthy.
I'm actually down to 198 pounds now after three weeks! But I really need the motivation to start exercising again, because I know that the weight loss won't keep going at this speed for much longer. I bought a nicely priced and well-reviewed elliptical machine, but it's been a few days and I haven't yet used it. I need to get myself motivated somehow!
I'm hoping that keeping an online food diary/activity log (as opposed to just a paper one) will help me keep going. And being a part of a community like this online!
