Hey ladies! This forum is full of women who are supportive and looking for support in return! Because I'm living alone at the moment, I have turned toward all y'all FitDay-ers and have yet to be disappointed! One thing that I have found to be exceedingly helpful are the threads where people build a group and they all weigh in on certain days. This helps to build a more personalized support system while also keeping you accountable! It might be silly but it has kept me from eating that extra yogurt or driving down to the store for whatever it is that I'm craving.
I have PCOS and am insulin resistant (aka pre-diabetic) so I can sympathize with people not understanding just how much harder you have to work to maintain or lose compared to someone else who is "normal".
Plus I absolutely love to hear myself talk way too much so I'll just pimp out my favorite sites now so that you can check them out:
1.Muscle & Fitness Hers home
2.Calorie Calculator - Daily Caloric Needs
3. Women's Bodybuilding Training - Lose Fat With Pauline's Bodybuilding Fat Loss Tips for Women
The first two are practical for women and weightloss; however, the third is one that while aimed at those who already near their fitness goals, is still nice because it reminds me to stay on track and to appreciate how far I've come instead of how far I have to go.
