Hi I am a working mom of two wonderful boys.. I have always been thin but when I hit 40 yrs old that is when It all started the weight gaining.. I am at my all time high at 50 pounds over..I need to lose it for I can feel that it is draining me.. my main problem is MOTIVATION.. I sometimes have at it all time high then on some days its gone.. I like to play with my boys tired of being on the side line watching them play ball.. I want to join in and build memories for them.. want to have fun.. I started with the tracking of my food I find out that I am not eating enough.. then my exercise I am doing the walking for 30 mins everyday then I will switch to something else like strength training.. even playing a little tennis with my son.. we will see but for starters I will walk trying to reach the 10000 steps... really need some help on the motivation.. someone to boost it up...
