new meat.  
Hey everyone: 

I just realized that I'm back to the same weight I was last year around this time and that makes me so sad.  I lost 20ish pounds over the course of the year and thanks to my anxiety meds & Thanksgiving / Christmas plus a lot of boozing I've gained it alll back.
At least last year I had an excuse for it, I had been laid up for months from surgery and eating 3 meals a day with zero exercise.  This time around I have no excuse and I'm beyond fed up with feeling this gross.

I'm not looking to do anything drastic like go on a diet, but I just want to start eating healthier in general.  I plan to cut out fast food as much as possible if not completely and eat more fruits and veggies. 

Also as of today I'm going to the gym for at least an hour and will continue to do so every other day,  On the days that I work I plan to go right after work so there's no chance of my going home and getting distracted or lazy as has been an issue in the past.
I have to keep it kind of a low tolerance workout for now, I had serious knee surgery last year so for now I'm looking to strength build my legs and tone everything else.  One goal is that by no later than this coming fall I will be able to enroll in a beginner's yoga class. I've always wanted to.

Thanks in advance for any support / advice ;-)

I find that going on the way home from work is so effective! Once you've bothered to pack a gym bag and lug it all there, there's no point wussing out. Hope it works for you, good luck!

good luck! if your not looking for a drastic change, i would just stop drinking any and all soda, cut back on booze (liquid calories!!), limit carbohydrates, and introduce fiber into your day. if you can, take the stairs, no eating late, etc.. good luck!

thanks. I already don't drink soda (hate the stuff) but definitely cutting back on booze, and not eating late should be helpful too.
