I've tried doing this weight loss thing for so many years now. When I first started SparkPeople I was ON A ROLL! I was able to drop pounds like flies. Then, My motivation dissipated. My dad died, work got stressful, we had money issues, family issues, and a whole slew of other things going on. That I just gave it all up. I ate my feelings and gained back everything I worked so hard to lose and then some. I am right now at the heaviest I have EVER been. I'm disgusted by it. I have NEVER wanted to be this large. I look at photos of myself and I'm just disgusted by them. I went to a concert last night with my daughter... and sitting in the stadium seat was so uncomfortable. Not because it's hard... but, because my fat butt barely fit.
My husband has been following a program where he works out every day and has been using weights and really working towards his goal... and I sit on the couch and watch him. WHY AM I NOT JOINING HIM? I am light years away in the progress he's accomplished. I need a game plan. I read something today that said... just like any appointment I might have... I need to make an appointment for working out. That resonated with me.
I've been experiencing more neck, back, knee pain lately... and I wanted to know... what exercises are good choices to start with? I've already started with walking at work. I've rallied up some co-workers to keep me going. Even if they cannot walk with me... I go. I've been doing this for several weeks now. But, I need to do more. What are some good starting exercises to get my momentum going again besides walking?
Thank you for your input!
