I would like to loose 40lbs, exercise 4 days a week with three of those days being with my children. I want to really understand portion control and help my children to understand the same.
I will track my progress with the nutrition tracker. I will continue to plan my meals and snacks. I will schedule exercise into my life by running at work, exercising on the weeknds, and asking my kids to join me in bike riding and anything else they would like to do!
I live in Fairfield, California, I am married and have 3 children.
Put a smile on your face Maintain an upbeat attitude Count your blessings. Enjoy the good moments Remember the bad moments are not The rest of your life. Keep things in perspective Dwell on Faith -not on feelings Walk in Faith and you shall Be Blessed!

Hi, I read your post about tennis elbow on the message boards. There is a phenomenon called collateral benefits. Even thought you can't do strength training on your dominant arm, if you do strength training with your non-dominant arm you will receive some benefits on your dominant arm from it. That will allow your dominant arm to get recovery time but still have exercise benefits which will speed up your recovery while preventing the rest of your body from loosing ground.
Good luck. I will pray for a fast recovery for you.
