Over the last 7 monthsl I have made a  decision to do something about my weight.  By eating healthily, cutting fats etc I have lost 63 lbs so far.  I would like to loose another 20 lb in the next 6 months.  I was fantastic this week buying jeans 4 sizes smaller and finding that they were too big!

Wow! That is fantastic! And I think wanting to drop another 20 lbs in six months is a totally reasonable goal. You can do it!

I know how good it feels when you eat healthy foods. For me I also like how I feel after I exercise.

I've shared this story elsewhere but I'll post it here too... When I was pregnant with baby #2 I ended up gaining 75 lbs in seven months. Normally I run and have been running for years and assumed I was going to run through the pregnancy but things didn't happen that way. Couldn't run, ate more food than I realized, packed the weight on... seven months later, all that weight! So when baby was nine days old I got back out there, started paying close attention again to what I was eating and how much and ramped up my mileage quickly. The weight came off! It felt so good getting rid of all my maternity clothes and digging out my regular clothes.

Thanks.  I want to start playing hockey (field not ice) this autumn, I haven't felt confident enough for the last few years 'cos of the weight.  I want to ramp up the exercise level over the next few months.  I had some fries recently and couldn't eat them cos they now taste too greasy smile.gif

The same thing happens when I eat fast food these days. Every now and then a hamburger tastes good but the fries are gross and I hate how gut-bombed I feel afterwards.

It's good to have goals to shoot for because it keeps you going, especially since you want to lose more weight. I think field hockey sounds fantastic! Go for it!!  smile.gif
