Hi! Just wondering if anyone else is/or has recently been/the process of exercising, fitness, and/or dieting. Let me know what you did/ or do.
I am a short girl, and my clothes tell me I am WAY too fat. It seemed as if it happened so fast, but I think it's been coming on all summer. I waited until fall to embark on a full diet plan because my husband is a Great cook, and I don't want to miss his treats (He grills out.) Me, I am a micorwaver, or a stir fryer, usually. I HATE cooking anymore. As for exercise, I know what to do, I just need to DO IT! I use to be an exercise fanatic (almost bulemic). I use to run 40-50 miles a week. Due to back surgery, a neck surgery, and numerous foot surgeries, I don't do any of that anymore. I have started to exercise slowly, because otherwise with my metabolism I won't lose ANY weight just by dieting. (Also,it is slowed by the fact my small frame doesn't need many calories to just maintain a normal weight.) Additional slowdowns are: .menopause, not smoking (20+ yr. now), and the fact that I am a chronic pain patient, so I can't exercise like I ONCE did.) But I had gotten to the point of not even moving enough! I know better! I can do better than that! So, if you have any success hints of your own, please pass them on, I'll be ever so grateful.
