I've struggled with weight since graduating high school. 10 years ago I worked off 50 lbs and have slowly gained them back. I'm here to get back to my old weight...and then some.

I have a very hard time getting more than 5000 steps a day! The 2 days I did get over 10K, I felt like that was all I was doing ... walking!! inside my house no less!! I admire your ability. Do you have any advice for me?

Louise, I somehow missed this post! On days that I am afraid I won't hit my goal, I'll look at my steps and walk in place until I hit the next hundred marker. Or I get up every hour and do a lap around the office, my house or wherever I am. But set a goal that is realistic to yourself!! First - start February telling yourself that you want to hit 5k steps every day. Then work up slowly if that approach is working. Overshooting a goal isn't setting you up for success.

Definitely. One of the reasons I've started the DB10 is I kept going WILD after my DB4s were over!

Diane - I hear what you are putting down! My motto is that I cannot spend another year fat. At 5 feet tall, turning 42, I found myself basically 40-50 pounds over weight in July. My weight has always fluctuated a lot. I diet, I lose, I gain back, sometimes gain more, then lose again, it's irritating. Why can't I get this under control? It's one of a few things that I feel are holding me back from the life I should be living. When I'm overweight I don't feel attractive, I don't want to date, I feel like no one would want to date me and then I stay home and eat more...it's a cycle. I don't even have any good excuses for the weight gain, I'm not a tired mom, I'm not in a relationship, I have free time. It's just me being lazy, over eating, not exercising. I want to get this under control and stop the yo-yo. I just keep thinking it would be nice to not have to worry about my weight for once! And that's what I plan to do, get to my goal weight and stay there so I can focus on other things.
