       Ok, so once again, I've decided to get in shape or at least try. Beginning in February 2009, I started walking in the park and progressed to running sprints. In June 2009, my boyfriend and I joined a gym and I started going five to six days a week. I did a combination of cardio and weight training. I thought I was right on track and felt good about the effort I was making. By September 2009, I had lost 0 pounds. I don't know how this was possible because I felt my eating habits were good. May have been due to stress. I found out in November that my thyroid was all out of whack so my doctor increased my medication. Since that time, I have had no motivation. I put in so much effort over the summer to get in shape with no results, it's been difficult to get back to it. I continued to go to the gym, once or twice a week but my heart hasn't been in it.
        I want to get healthy and lose 40-50 pounds. I found that I hate going to the store because the clothes I find are really cute but I know they won't be cute on me. I'm not sure what will motivate me but I thought a website tracking my exercise and eating habits may help me become more accountable. Tomorrow will be my first day. Wish me luck.
