weight loss

hey all, I wanted to write and say how insired I am about reading everyones succes. I am 43 now, and every day it gets harder and harder to lose weight. I work overseas, so when I am home, I eat the "good stuff" and end up gaining all kinds of weight. I was out of work for 5 months and got to an all time high in my weight. now that I am back overseas, trying to get back on track. was so excited yesterday after reading this, and got into what people where talking about cross fit, (I am pretty much stuck on cardio right now, mostly running, stair stepper, bike, but I am trying to break out of that and get into more weight lifting), well, after losing 15 lbs in the past 1 1/2 months, yesterday, my weigh in day, ended up gaining 1 lb. I know part of where I messed up, but I couldnt believe not even a 1 lb lost. but going to try to move on and keep going. still have 25 lbs to go to reach my goal weight, but we will see.

15 lbs in 1 1/2 months is pretty impressive Rafter! Don't feel bad, you're gonna have highs and lows, and sometimes it's not gonna make much sense. The important thing is to just keep going! I bet you feel better with that much weight gone already. So it's only gonna get better! You can do this!

Sounds like you are doing great Rafter! Congrats! Exercise is so important. Now that the weather is nasty here, I have been doing cardio videos at home, and have been having loosing better than when I just do my 4 mile walks. I think mixing it up a bit is the key to success. Keep up the good work!
