hi, I moved to the midwest from california 4 years ago and I have gained 40 pounds since moving. In California I was walking all the time, a lot of people walk there. Now i'm battling this cold weather and there's ice on the ground a lot of the time in winter and im stuck inside, gaining weight. I don't feel good anymore, and i'm concerned for my health. Im a single mom and I have a 13 year old who has gained weight too. I try to get him to exercise with me but he refuses, it's so frustrating. When he was younger he would ride his bike with me while I went on long walk's and we were both fit.But after 10 years old he doesn't want to do anything that involves exercise. I alway's feel like I need to be in the house monitering him, what he's doing, and i'm neglecting myself. Before he was born I practically lived in the gym and I looked great. I need to loose these bad habit's. And I wish I could get him interested in exercise, but if I can't I need to get myself back into shape. I have a myspace account and I don't want my family and friend's to see a fat hippo on there!! Today I walked at the park, one mlie, will walking 1 mile 3 x's a week help or do I need to walk more? Another problem is that the Parks here are not lit up and night and that is when i like to walk after work, and i dont want to walk in the dark. So this year I want to really work on this, I dont want to die of a heart attack, and I want to feel good again. My goal is to lose 40 pound's. Im hopeing that I can find some inspiratinal friend's here to help! Thankyou!! Im so glad I found this site!
