Don't know if I'm late, but here goes...
I'm GG, 5'6", 20 years old, and around 210 lbs. I would love to get down to 160 lbs or so, but right now I am aiming for 180. I was at 180 when I left the farm last June. I was walking 4 miles a day, and working full time in a country butcher shop. Besides of doing chores around home and riding on weekends.
Right now I work part time (almost full time) at a drugstore, and teach guitar three days a week. I am trying get more exercise around home here. I started doing some sit-ups and a couple push-ups every day.
I am taking a pill called PGX Daily, it fills up your stomach so you don't eat as much. I have been taking it for around a month (5 pills ten minutes before each meal), and I've noticed a big difference in how much I eat. My sister says that she can see that I've lost weight. I don't see it, but I feel a lot better and more energetic. So I think it's doing something!
I've cut out cold cereal in the morning, and instead eat some greek yogurt.
Yesterday I spent around 3 hours (2 hours, a break, and then another hour) shoveling snow. I am a bit sore today but hopefully in a couple days that'll go away.
What I am really hoping is that I will be able to fit into size 12 jeans sometime this summer. I was a size 14 and then went up to a size 16.
I start riding lessons again in April. In June I am going to BC for an internship at an endurance farm. I should get my exercise there!
