Default Fitday Changed My Life

I stumbled on to Fitday in the winter of 2006 and decided that I was going to lose weight-the right way. No fad diets, no killing myself physically. I started my quest on 1/1/2007. I weighed 210 lbs. By September 2007, I weighed 160 lbs. I now weigh around 165. Here is a before and after. The after was taken this past September (2010). I recommend Fitday to everyone I know who is trying to lose weight, especially those who have tried and failed. I have even counseled many using the feature in the online version that allows others to view your logs. Thank you Fitday.

I joined fitday a couple of months ago. It's been really eye-opening for me.

HI, Nice work, I wish I could do that. I have a few things going against me, First I know I am borderline obese, I am not very tall and I am starting the curse of the women in our family, shrinking, the more I shrink the more I fall into the obese department, sounds funny, I know, I have friends who laugh...I dont really think it is, I want to be here for my kids and feel like I am entering into something that I know little or nothing about, I stopped smoking on the 21st of January, surprisingly I havent gained any weight, I started working out that monday. I don't know enough about good and bad carbs, protein and everything else to know what and when to eat. I do the 6 meals a day thing but I feel I eat alot and still think about food..ALOT! I eat my 3 main meals, then I have mini meals or snacks in between those. I think you can see my food log ..if not let me know if you are even willing to help me out. I can give you a list of what I will eat in a day. I also workout for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours a day. I always do 30 minutes on the treadmill, uphill. I do about an hour on the wiifit, I do the running, step and hoola hoop, boxing and bicycle. Please if there is anything that you can do to help me I would be so grateful...I also have a friend that comes and works out to, she is 7 years younger then I am and she is the high side of obese, if she gains a little more she cant use the wii fit. I told her she needs to push herself instead of just doing it until she starts to sweat. I worry about her. thanks for reading this. Have a blessed day and hope to hear from you soon. L.
