Over the last five years my lifestyle changed and so did my weight and fitness level. At first I did not pay too much attention, but now I know I have to get back in shape, and lose about 10lbs. I will give it my best shot. I know I am not a young thing any longer, and it will not be easy, but I have to at least try.
The biggest challenge is the exercise I hate to exercise.
The Internet is a grand thing when you are looking for tools to help in your endeavors. I came across MyFitnessPal, which for me, is going to work the best. I can enter all the foods I eat for each day, including all the nutritional stats, log all exercise I do, track my weight lost every week, and have the support of others in the program, and it is all FREE.
A feature I really like, is that I went in and planned menus for a whole week, then printed them out, so every day I know exactly what I will have for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Having the menus planned and printed, also tells me what foods I need to purchase.
I started my new lifestyle changes yesterday and liked all the food I had chosen for the day, and, I actually got on my stair climber and put in a "little" time which was not as easy as I remember it had been in the past. This tells me I am really out of shape.
So, wish me luck, and stop by now and again to check my progress.
