Diet and exercise ping!!
Please add me to the list thanks.
Hmm, this could be useful, thanks.
I fell off the wagon, but decided that I am going to start walking, then work up to jogging, along with getting back to keeping track of my points.
Winter and the stress of moving made me eat, now I have no such excuse.
Oh, and please add me to the ping list! Thanks! This will be great!
No shame in falling off the wagon. It happens. Just get back on! LOL I know that's so much easier said then done.
"NO VERBAL ATTACKS! NO NAME CALLING! NO BASHING! THE OVERWEIGHT! NO NASTY PICTURES POSTED! This will be a thread about getting healthy and no attacks will be tolerated."
All these threads should be looked upon as such...
I meant to ping you to the other thread, too! (Hanging my head in shame)
That's true....what a wonderful world that would be! LOL
Thanks. I lost a lot of weight last year and then in the winter I switched to building some muscle. Now I'm looking to get back to the fat burning phase.
How did you lose it?
I did the weight watchers point system and I hit the gym, hard. It was great to lose the weight but I lost some muscle along the way. At one point I was only consuming 1200 calories a day. Stupid.
Remember to set goals for yourself. At least that helped me. I had a bit of a waist line problem and about 30 lbs to lose. Too much stress and too much beer. Or was it the other way around? That was in the mid-90's and I decided I wanted to run a 12K for my goal and was sick of being uncomfortable. Just getting ready for that helped me drop 40. It's okay for a treat once in a while but moderation is the key for me. Best of luck!
Don't believe everything you hear from this guy, but his exercise philosophy is worth a thoughtful look.
Clarence Bass is amazing. Good help for us older guys and gals. Read article #10 (Forget the fat burning zone) on his site before you get on the treadmill again. Good info there.
As for me, I am starting my diet all over again this week. Forgive me Lord, I am a backslider.
Thank-you for starting this....It looks wonderful already!
