Hey everyone, I'm new obviously. My name is Stephanie, and i'm overweight! I am 6'0" in height, and 283 lbs in weight. I have a year to lose the necessary weight for me to go from a large size 18 to a size 16. My first goal is 10lbs, and after each checkpoint, i'll add 10 more lbs to lose. My current regime is to go for a run around my block, which I would say is about 1km in the morning, and again in the evening. I do not eat breakfast or lunch, and some may say that is the worst possible thing for me to do, however i haven't been eating lunch or breakfast for so many years that my body seems to have become accustomed to it, and when i do eat breakfast and lunch, i gain weight. i do however max out nutritionally on my dinners, having smaller portions, using a smaller plate rather than regular size plate, and i try to use fresh vegetables, etc. As well as running, I do 12 sit ups, and 12 leg ups every morning and evening, 4 push ups in the evening, and 24 raises with a 15lbs dumbell on each arm morning and evening. Starting this week I will be having one diet soda once a week. 

I have a gym membership to a gym, and pool in my area, 15lb weights, and an excersize ball. Any suggestions for other excersizes i could do? i'm hoping to be down to 215lbs by next June. However, as close as possible is best, I realize that weight loss is a constant struggle. I think it`s time for a change.

Why the one year deadline? Or is that just a goal?

oh bloody hell, im talking like im still in school. it's actually a little over a year, because i'm starting college in sept. 08', and i finally think its time for a change. a year is a fairly good goal for me, i don't want to be thin, just healthy.

I suggest maybe getting some lighter weights because weightlifting is good but maybe moving it down to like 8-10 lbs and doing 40 raises is better because when you use more weight you gain more muscle, but if you use lighter weights and do more reps you burn more calories and get a toned look rather than a buff look.

good luck :D
