I am so glad to have found this board. I have recently started to work out again after sliding off the wagon. I realize that at 170 lbs I am too heavy for my 5'1 frame. Although I feel that I am getting too old not to have somefat to keep help the wrinkles at bay I know I can't stay this heavy and not have to take a handful of medication everyday later in life.

Five years ago I was the same weight and dropped 25 lbs but didn't stick to it so it came back with a vengeance. I also had a distorted image beccause now I realize that I was probably very closeto what I considered my ideal wieght.Because I wasn't so heavy and still maintained my curves.

So again I have given up the soda for water monitoring my portions since we eat relativelyvery welland getting active since I'm homeeveryday.

I also have a hard time working out in gyms. I have been building a library of DVDs that I like so that helps and it also leaves me no excuse not to work out. I look forward to meeting everyone else on this journey.

It is good to know that I am not a lone user of home workout videos.We are a military community where the gym is free and most people look at you like you are crazy when you say you don't use it.

Thanks Angie!
