Shelia B I have lost 20 lbs so far and that's great, but I'm still along ways from my goal. So I'm staying very positive and on the task at hand. So for all of you out there don't give up keep going you can do it. And remember you have a great Tribe Family for support and encouragements.
A tribe for those of us that started out, or are starting out, to loss weight and ended up on a journey of self discovery getting fit along the way.

Shelia B As I'm keeping my goal in reach. Each day I know I'm getting closer. I may not always feel the best, but I put on my big girl pants and make my self do it. I like working out I always have. With my injuries it make it more harder to do. But I can do it.
Melinda B Shelia, I agree. Keep your eyes on your goals and do not let anything stop you. I could allow work, my family to stress me or to distract me, but I have a goal in sight. You have to push yourself through that extra minute, push-up, crunch, squat, run,....in the end you will be happy with the results. You will be glad you endured.
Shelia B Ok ladies and gentlemen a little advice. When the world is throwing you curves or walls you can go around it or over it. Its just a force that's trying to stop you for reaching your goals and your dreams. Never stop looking at the stars or reaching for them.
Shelia B My new motto is when I feel my body sweating and burning it's my ( FAT crying out saying stop I don't want to go away ) So I work a lot harder to make it cry more and to go away. Don't give up keep going and don't do it for anybody but you. Only you can make you happy.
Shelia B I can understand how hard it is to get yourself on a life challenging adventure. I don;t like the word DIET. WE all say Life Changing sounds so much better. I believe if you start small you can do it. You can have the foods you love you have to learn how to eat a lot less. You can have that candy bar just not the whole bar. It's about teaching yourself and believing in yourself you can do it. Keep a journal of what you eat everyday and drink you will be surprised at what you eat and how much you drink. Cut the amount that you eat in half you will be surprised that the weight starts coming off. So don't give up.
Shelia B Hi my name is Shelia. I'm on a personal challenge with myself to lose a 120 lbs in one year. I have always struggled with my weight. A year ago I hurt my back and now I'm on my way to strengthen and healing my whole body.
Hi, my name is Leanne and this isn't my first try at getting healthy. I am the heaviest I have ever been right now and that is going to change. I want to finish a 5km run in under 40 minutes as for the last year or so 45 min has been my best time.

Another really fun running program (if you like Zombies) is the Zombies, Run! 5K trainer. It is an app that costs $1.99, but it is a blast to listen to and is really good at keeping you motivated. The whole premise i...

I would have recommended the "Couch to 5k" as well. It even got me running when I gave it a try. Just make sure your posture is correct - read up a little bit (I've stated before that I was not the smartest runner ou...
