Hi, new here. My name is Carol, and I need to lose about 200 pounds. My current weight is 351 and would like to get that down to 150 before all this extra weight kills me. My mom had me take that real age test on this one web site and it is supposed to calculate how old your body thinks it is by evaluating your health and habits. I am only 43 years old but the real age calculated that my body thinks that it is 57.7 years old and it recommended that I get exercise and watch my diet.
I know that I need to get the body moving more. I went to my nieces wedding recently and had to walk down a steep path to the beach where the wedding was held, Getting down was the easy part-I was the last one up the path and someone sent one of my sisters to come find me to make sure that I was ok and didn't collapse and die trying to get back to the parking area. I am not currently employed and now I am wondering if I am physically able to work if I can find work. A lot of people look at fat and think Lazy. But that is not the case. Sometimes I will go out of my way to do extra things just to prove that I can not only do the work but I am capable of doing more. My last job didn't help much I was spending 8 hrs a day at a desk or at the copier. My weight just keeps creeping up.
I don't have a specific diet in mind but I am going to try to cut most of the simple sugars and white breads and try to keep away from processed foods as much as possible. I also plan to do some strength training and I have several dance videos that have been collecting dust that I Need
