It's weight watchers. You have to be a member, but there are several others like it. Weight watchers was running a special, $60 for 3 months instead of $30 signup and $20 a month. It's was 10 dollars extra so I figured it was worth it. Plus I L O V E the app!

I just finished walking for today, actually managed 13,419 steps today. I usually shoot for at least 10,000 steps, but regularly get 12,000 steps.
I tried something new today while I was walking. I walked like I ride, posture wise. I couldn't maintain it the whole time, but I would maintain it until I felt it burning, then relax it for a while. I generally look down when I walk, which makes me slouch, but today I consentrated on looking straight ahead, with my ears over my shoulders, my shoulders over my hips, by abs pulled in, and my rear slightly tucked. I did not realize how much my posture had suffered with gaining weight, but I do now and I will fix it.
Does anyone else walk daily?

Great idea!

My name is Erin and I am 5'7, 140lbs. When I get back from deployment I will be getting my first horse, and I couldn't be more excited!

I know, I know.... I'm not over weight. BUT, if anyone would like some helpful advice, tips on working out, exercises, or eating healthy, I would be more then happy to help! Just let me know!

So...I weighed in this morning. I'm down to 243! That's 10 lbs. in 3 weeks 10 lbs. isn't enough to see much of a difference on me, but I'm already starting to feel healthier, which is really what I'm doing this for.
