I just joined peertrainer today after reading about this group on Fitness magazine. Any tips on how I can be successful with my membership?

My biggest challenge with fitness & healthy eating is lack of motivation. I will start out enthusiastically and fizzle out after a few weeks of trying to keep a food journal, counting calories, etc. Then I eat like it's the end of the world because I'm starting a new diet and repeat the same pattern. As a result I've gained about 20lbs in the last 6 months and my clothes no longer fit. I'm only 5'2 and my current weight of 140lbs (32% body fat) is way out of control!

Any tips are GREATLY appreciated!

Welcome to Peer suggestions are to jump right in....find or create group for people with your same goals in mind and post often. The more you keep track of your exercise and eating....the more feedback you can get and the more accountable you can be.....Also...if you have trouble along the way ask questions, seek support and advice in your group forum and here in the main forum.

There are so many people here that its a great place to get questions answered and get recommendations.....

Good Luck!

I joined yesterday

and I seem to have the same problems as you. I lack motivation and I have moved to a new area where I know nobody, therefore I have no support. My husband and children are junk food addicts....if it is not in my house I don't want it, but if it is there I tend to eat it late at night.

I would love to be a support for you and you for me as well. I am 5'5 and weigh 142.....around 15 pounds would put me where I would like to be. My id is brwnidgrl.......lets do this together!!

Might be good for those of you posting here to try putting together a group. :-) Because you are all new here, you may have the same enthusiasm!

Definitely use your logs-- it helps to keep you "accountable" and also you can review them and see how you have been doing!
