Hey there! I came across your profile on another page. I am also a teacher, and started my weight loss journey at about the same level.
Don't worry too much about how to fit in diet and exercise. I've discovered that just consciously thinking about taking a few extra steps, or doing a few wall push ups throughout the day has been a big help. I've also made a serious effort to drink about 100 oz of water a day. The nice thing about having this site handy is that you can usually track your food and exercise from the school.
Hi Rick, I stumbled on to your page and am writing because our fields of work are related. You with the children and me with the adults. Also, we are in the same age range! Anyhow, I added you as a friend to my page, I hope you don't mind.
Welcome to SP's! You have come to the right place to find motivation, health tips, and tons of support! I've been looking for something like this for a long time... If you need anything stop by my page and give me a holler. Take care and good luck reaching your weight loss goals!
P.S. As a school counselor I know how hard it is to juggle work and home life with staying in shape. You are to be commended for taking steps towards getting healthy and dropping those pounds. Get excited! You can do this!!! 3175 days ago
