Hello all, I am new here.  I have been going to the gym now for 3 weeks and loving it.  I go 4 dys a wee nd concentraten certain muschles each day and get in some cardio as well.  I used to be an athlete but had knee surgery 2 years ago that left me with low self esteem because I couldn't keep up with all the activities i used to do.  I am now looking and feeling better.  I still have pain in my knee (good ole arthritis) so I am limited to how fast i can go.  But I am determined to get at least 85% of that athletic body back!!! Thanks for reading and have a great day.

Hello, I am VERY new to workouts.  I joined Planet Fitness and overwhelmed with all the equipment.  I want to gain strength and stamina along with weight loss.  I am 55 yr old at 5'6 and weigh 234 lbs .  Hopefully I will find a good workout program that will keep me interested and keep it up.
Glad I found this site, hopefully I will get good advise and direction.

Here I go!!!!!!

Good Evening,

I have just started lifting...again.  Long story.  53 years of age. Overweight 250 lbs...6 foot 2 inches, so I learned to dress it well enough.  Larger pants and shirts..I believe we all know the drill.  I heard about the Keto diet one evening and after some research, slowly cut carbs out of my diet.  Daughter's wedding was last March and I wanted to look fit.  Lifted weights and walked about 5-6 miles per day.  After the wedding, I cut all carbs and all sugars and amazingly enough, the weight began to disapear.  I am now 188 lbs, feel great, but I have lost a lot of muscle and strength.   This is not a NEW YEAR, NEW YOU idea, it has been a long process.  I am looking forward to meeting you all, and learning from you too as we stroll this path together.

Hello!  I'm Laura - I'm currently 328.6lbs I am starting tomorrow in my very first attempt to get my workout from off the page and into my journal.  I have a v-shaped body type, and I can't wait to start!

I need to check this whole site!

Worst weight statment I've come across:  "Your not fat..." - How fat do I have to be in order to be fat in your eyes?

I took a picture with the therapy cat - I was mortified by the side of myself compared to her - I looked like a linebacker holding a foot ball...

So as to say - I'll keep updated with pictures.

Love to hear some pep-talks and pointers!  Hoping to make some workout buddies as well!

~ Laura
