Hi, I am new, and I am glad I found this site, I think that is awesome, I'm 5' 4" and my weight is 137 lbs I don't think I am over weight but I'm having cholesterol problems, I eat very healthy and be working out on and off say 2 or 3 times a week  walking, treadmill, eleptic and some weights, I am doing the cardio workout but since there is not option for walking, I have bad knees, I can not run, but I walk pretty fast I think?? last time I did a 5K I did it in 42.8 Is that good?? Also I do two days of weights and 1 day of yoga or pilates.
  Can you please let me know is I am missing the option to track my time and distance for walking?
Thank you for your help and thank you for having this site.

Hi my name is Mary and I am new to this site.  I am hoping that by joining this site that I will be able to lose weight by having an exercise program that will work for me.  I also like the idea that I can talk to people who have the same problems that I have losing weight, having support from different people.   I am 5ft 1inch, weigh 295 lbs, have had both of my knees replaced, I have COPD, and congestive heart , I also have joint degenerative disease.  All of these combined makes it hard to lose weight.   I have thyroid disease as well and my medication keeps weight on me. I am hoping to be able to come up with an exercise program that helps me in all these goals and look forward to talking to people who understand my problems rather than putting me down

Hi there,

My name is Maria and I am obviously new to this site.  Ok I started three years ago losing weight and have lost a whoping 60kgs.  I have found though in the last year that I am struggling a little and am starting to put a little of the weight back on that I have gone to great lengths to loose.  Anyway, the only thing that has changed is that I have stopped exercising as i\I lost my husband and went of tracks and am finding it hard to pick myself back up and get back on with the exercise.  If I am being completely honest though I did struggle with the exercise even before he past but he did encourage me which is what I am missing.  So here I am........needing some help and encouragement by others that are going thorugh the same thing and understand how easy it  can be to fall of the waggon so to speak.  i actually find people close to me although can be positive they are not very encouraging so I am looking for that, oh well enough about me for now as i can go on and on and repeat myself heheheheh.......

I am hoping this site will motivate me to stay on track and never give up no matter how tough things get. My goal is to lose weight - lots of it. . I lost 2 inches around my waist from following an exercise program from July to September with the  Diabetic group through the hospital. Although the scale did not budge .... the 2 inches lost felt sooooo good....  Through this group I learnt that I am very impulsive and need some structure.. The impulsivity is great for creativity and expression.but is counter productive for a healthy lifestyle.. especially when you have to do everything on a schedule (especially meals)..  I am going to try my hardest and  i always listen to advice

Hello:

I just switched from Crossfit to a global gym and decided to join a network for support and training guidelines.  I'm starting today. Wish me luck!
