OK, I thought I had joined this group and posted but I guess not. If I did (which I could find no hint of) I have not posted anything until today. Good Golly, I need to lose weight! My last doctor appointment was in december and I weighed a whopping 206. That is great if you are a hampshire, not so great if you are 5' 4" and 46 years old. Weighed myself today and I am down to 199, not making much progress on my own so any ideas would be appreciated. I did a form U 3 thing long ago and lost 50 pounds but cannot afford to and would not if I could spend money like that again. My main goal is to get my knees and feet more comfortable and becoming flexible like I used to be. I have no unreasonable expectations of getting back to my black belt shape but would like to be healthier. Sorry i am rambling - one other thing - I blame my weight on me, I love to cook and I love to eat, I like to exercise but am a terrible procrastinator.
