    I'm hoping for a more disciplined approach to my days and an outcome that gives me freedom to once again do the activities that I love.

    I do workouts everymorning before school, so I can sleep better, focus better, function better, and get more in shape.

    My first little goal is to be under 210 then under 200 pounds. I want to develop better habits and to be a good example for my teenage daughter. I have not been under 199 pounds in over 30 years. I have pledged to walk at least a mile every day and am also trying to do some other activity daily. It is cold walking outside, but so much more enjoyable than walking on a treadmill inside

    In 2021 I would like to gain:

    1.) Confidence - by losing weight
    2.) Flexibility - by learning yoga this year & stretching more
    3.) Discipline - I guess practice will help me gain this one... heh :D

    and some more friends along the way!! Add me!

    My main goal is better health markers. The older I get, the more I have paid attention to things like cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. So far none have been an issue except the blood pressure and I hope to keep it that way as long as possible!
    As for BP, I've been on meds for several years. I'm hoping to lose enough weight to reduce, if not completely eliminate them. I'm not that overweight (174 lb, 5'5") but my doctor thinks it will help.

    Also, I want to be smaller and lighter so that I can perform better at yoga and dancing. The poses are easier with less of *me* in the way! The more active I am now, hopefully the more gracefully I can age.

    I´m looking for some more inspiration to gain my effort. I've got 20 kilos to lose.
    I had my baby born in the November -04. Thereafter I´ve been through 4 brainoperations (due to a tumour), 4 misscarriages, divorce that I wanted. Now I wanna get on my feet again. The doctor found suitable medidin for my pain in leg and now I`ll make my new start! Here I come again!

    I am looking to gain self discipline, better healthier eating habits, to fit and look better in my clothes. Also, I want to gain stamina, strength and be able to do yoga and exercises without pain or feeling like I am going to pass out! :)

    I'm looking to gain a healthier lifestyle and regain my fit soccer body back...minus the soccer part! lol my joints won't allow me to run anymore...Just power walking and weight training HIIT workouts from now on. I've had chronic lower back pain and hoping to shed some pounds and strengthening my core will help alleviate the pain.

    Hi All,

    After many years of not really focusing on the needs of my body, I've eventually gotten to the point where I've admitted that I'm really unhappy with the way that I look and the inability to be able to enjoy the activities I once did. By many standards I'm not really that heavy (I was 16st 4lbs ish) but I've put on alot of viceral fat due to poor diet choices. As i'm 5ft 7in I felt weighed down and lethargic.

    Just over a month ago I'd finally had enough and embarked on learning and forming new healthy habits into my life.

    I overspent on Under Armor gym clothes (which are definitely worth it!) , some modest equipment for home workouts and a Calisthenics course.
    My most recent purchase being the MyFitnessPal app which is amazing!

    I'm pleased to say that in a little over 5 weeks I've dropped 12lbs (Losing 50lbs is my goal) purely down to changes in food types, sizes of meals and counting macros. Now I start on phase 2 which is introducing exercise back in the mix.

    I commit to 30 mins daily exercise as a minimum.

    Thanks to Under Armor for coming alongside me in this journey... although they don't know it!

    Good luck on your own personal journeys and remember... The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step!
