Well here I am AGAIN! I have graduated nursing school and am starting my first job tomorrow:) While I did great with my weight during the first year at school, 2nd year was hell. My husband was unemployed for a year, I only worked part time and combined with the stress of full time school I gained ALL my weight back.

So now I'm starting over. Starting at 185lbs. My BP is on the cusp of high @ 140/95, my knees and back hurt again and my depression/anxiety is back. All of this was taken care of last time with weight loss through diet and exercise. It happened once, I know I can do it again. I just need to find the get up and go I lost.

    Cardio i love to do. Treadmill is my best freind, if i walk on treadmill its a walk jog, but on the 15%(steepest) incline, and i normally do that an hour. The satirs at the gym, they have a cardio machine for stairs, i like that 30-45mins. Rowing and ellipitcal i will mix it up once and while. Come Oct when my work for year is done, i normally add my squash game back in 5 days a week. Thats basically what i do, i have taken up running though, and try to get that in 3 times a week 3 miles(4.8km) Doesnt really matter what cardio you do, just get sweating and if thats running off you, then ya got a good cardio happening.

    My rule of thumb is keep it simple and work hard. To much fancy is frustrating i think. Just do what you love!

    Hi there. CHeesecake....and you didnt invite me?!!! Dont feel guilty bout the cheesecake, it was your birthday. If we take everything we enjoy out of our lives, then thats sad. This isnt a diet, its a lifestyle change, we learn good food choices along the way and change our habits. But we are still allowed to celebrate, we just toss in an extra work out to compensate, or understand the scale wont go down next day. I am firm beleiver in having fun, we become resentful if we cant have so gald you celebrated birthday.!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

    I told my girlfreind when she gets to her goal, i'll buy her a piece of cheese cake, thats what she wanted when she reached her goal, so i promised her i would do that for her and with her!

    So you are going for a ride up in Niagara region, where bouts are you. I live up around Pembroke Ontario Canada.
