Good morning! A co-worker pointed me to this site, and I am so happy to have found you all!
A little bit about me...I am married, 43 years old, work full-time (plus), and have two girls, ages 16 and 2.
I used to work out religiously (lifted 3-4x a week, plus cardio), and I was in great shape. I mean, great shape. I wore size 4 or 6, weighed 130, bodyfat maybe 15-18% (can't remember). I had tons of energy, and felt fabulous. I have been off for a little over four years, due to job demands, then pregnancy (high risk), then baby demands.
Long story short, I am ready to come back. Right now I am in a size 12 (ack!!!!), and weigh around 165 (I'm 5'3). I want the energy back, I want the good health back.
I'm thinking I need to start with walking, just to get back into the habit of taking care of myself. I also have very light weights at home (3 lbs), but I want to join a gym.
My question is this: are there any ladies here who have been through a similar set of circumstances? Do you have any insights or any recommendations for me? Thanks in advance!
