Just what I needed considering my new cholesterol requirements!
Hi I'm new to this site, but this is excatly what I need! Pretty excited to have to answer to somebody else. Hoping it will keep me from cheating so much.
I'm starting a relaxed version of The South Beach Diet today and a walking program my doctor has said is now a daily requirement rain or shine for the rest of my life.
I'll join in and do the best I can, but even though I am back to "regular" hours as of today, my schedule still requires me get up at, what *I* still consider the middle of the night: 3:30 am and not having the thyroid issues worked out yet, I'm more for taking a "back seat" position. That's not to say I'm not watching what I eat and trying to get exercise - I've actually been walking a lot and I bought an MP3 player and am slowly loading it with my favorite music for company on my walks. I find I "walk to the music" - faster music requires faster walking, slower music slows down the walk!! Isn't that called "interval training"??
I would, however, love to be the lead cheerleader ---------------- so let me start off with:
Go, Go, Go, gals and guys!!! Yay ........................
Count me in but no guarantees on the homework .. compliance maybe though. :)
I'm kind of doing a South Beach Diet thing. Basically South Beach but not super restricted. I don't have the money at the moment to do it exactly.
But I did plan the next week worth of meals, and got some Slim Fast and plain fat free yougurt for smoothies in the morning. ( I'm not abig breakfast person and SB has almost nothing but eggs for options) So I'm pretty excited.
I checked out several books on CD and am going to use them for walking company. I found years ago when I did a lot of driving out of state that they really made the time fly so I think it will do the same with walking.
Soooooo......do you want our actual weights or measurments before we start?
I am VERY new to this Hypothyroid thing and want any and all help to get back to "normal". Let me know what i need to do? I have been watching my Calorie in take along with beginning a exercise program. I am ready for Homework :)
