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.
