    It's been so long since I last exercised (not counting a 10k run the other Sunday)... I feel like crap. I can't sleep properly and have no energy and have headaches all the time. This sucks.

    I think I've lost weight a few pounds, surprisingly... since I just went on vacation with lots of good resort, gourmet food twice a day!! But I'm back at school and will be able to start my regime again of doing 40 minutes of cardio 4-5x/ week starting on monday. Also, looking forward to an entirely vegan kitchen since I'm moving into a friends apartment for the summer and will the only one here until the end of august!

    No, the double post wasn't!

    But I did walk 50 minutes on purpose. I walked to the library and a bit downtown.

    Good news for me today.

    My physio is happy with my progress and I will be handed over to a personal trainer next Thursday.

    I don't know what type of initial training i'm going to get - but I can't wait to get back on the ladder again

    Puffin, you did 1 hour 20 minutes of cardio! Wow!! I can only do like 50-60 mins on the elliptical, its tiring!

    I've been lazy with exercize, lately. Been going through a lot, so I've put exercize on the back burner... I'm aiming to get back up to between 30-60 minutes on the elliptical 5x/ week. I've stuck to my yoga... at least.

    I wouldn't worry about one or two pounds unless you need to get to a fighting weight! The main thing is you are getting fitter, stronger and more toned, you're body shape will be changing slightly and that is far more important than a couple of pounds off. I've seen my weight fluctuate by almost half a stone, depends on how i've been eating, drinking etc over the day or two before , but it always settles down to round about 160lbs.

    Okay - that's a tough one (to motivate someone else across a forum) - but should be doable.

    Why do you feel you need to get fit again?

    You state 'fit again' - so you were happy at one stage.

    What is not fit about you in your opinion - and why/how did this come about to be unfit in the firstplace, in your opinion?

    PM me if you don't want to post.

    True, i just set myself a small goal and didnt manage to get to it that was why i was angry. I know weight isnt important, its how you feel about yourself and i dont weigh myself that often so its not a huge issue, just tried really hard and was a little deflated. Anyway, i am continuing the healthy eating but haven't done any exercise all weekend but am back on track later. I feel good and my jeans fit better so i am a lot happier today

    We played football for nearly 2 hours in the park 9 vs 9. I had my best game for ages and the calf felt fine. The ground was sooo hard though. Have to be kind to my knees.
    Cardio, an unavoidable part of playing football, was not my friend after about an hour and a half yesterday!

    Iv always had problems with weight been over weight under weight never in the middle. Also had eating disorders in the past, gym addiction too.

    A few years ago i was diagnosed with a metabolism disorder so weight just sticks to me, makes it really difficult to loose weight and keep it off so i have to work extra hard, the meds im on do help a bit but the problem is still there.

    I did loose a lot of weight when i first went vegan a few years back and i felt great, so confident, fit and healthy but due to depression recently iv gained about a stone and feel dreadful about it. I used to go to the gym regularly but my membership has lapsed now and my enthusiasm with it im afraid.

    Im not happy with the way i look right now or feel, im used to being fit and healthy.

    I don't know anything about metabolism disorders.

    This is a help thread as much as anything else, so would anyone with knowledge of metabolism disorders please post their thoughts and experiences that might help.

    I'm not happy either. My weight reason was complicated, but medical based - which is now resolved - but the 'leaving' present is the weight.

    I think even posting your thoughts on this matter is a start to getting to where you want to be.

    You have to find the trigger that will bounce you back into action.

    Chatting to people helps that along somewhat.

    Thanks Frank, the metabolism problem i have is caused by an underactive thyroid which is inherited from my mum. Its only with excessive dieting (500 cals per day) and lots of exercise that i can loose weight. I do take meds which i will need for life that help balance it out a little but the low metabolism is one of the many symptoms of this condition, over active thyroid people tend to be skinny.

    My mums a size 18, im a 14-16. im vegan, exercise (though not to the extreme i used to), eat very low fat foods, rarely touch crisps, dont like cakes, not a chocolate lover and biscuits dont do much for me. My mum on the other hand rarely exercises, shes veggie but eats full fat foods, loves cakes, eats tonns of bread, always got biscuits, is a cheese addict and eats lots of chocolate yet were hardly that much difference in size or weight. So not fair. I really hope my children dont inherrit my dodgy thyroid.

    With thyroid issues - isn't there a radioactive correction treatment available?

    Where you go and sit in a chamber for a time, maybe for several sessions?

    Can anyone progress that?

    My latest update is I've been transferred from physio to a personal trainer.

    I'm doing core exercises and flexibility for a while it seems.

    Once those areas are satisfactory I will be able to move onto gym work.

    I am allowed to go on a bike for 30 minutes 4 times a week.

    Trouble is, seems crap to join a gym for that - or even go as a pay as you go jobby.

    I'll look to see what bikes are available for home.

    Has anyone got a bike at home?

    Can you recommend anything?

    my neighbour gave me a free month's gym membership yesterday which she won in a raffle.

    the gym only costs 12.95 per month with no contracts etc! if i like it there, that's cheap enough for me to sign up

    i don't think its a chain, maybe an independant. i can only find our local one on the web.

    i don't mind if it's basic (no towels etc) as long as there is enough equipment to go round and staff on hand to help.
