I loved that link. It is so true, atleast for me. I exercise and love to do it, but for me to lose weight I need to stop the excess SNACKING.

We're full now....

...but you could start a new one....

I got the idea from Sally Edwards' "Fit and Fat" heart rate training book. It's a fantastic training tool but also has great stories about "fat" athletes doing tris and marathons. Just because some insurance height/weight tables call you fat doesn't mean you can't be athletic. (This fat girl weighs 200#, is 5' 6", has a resting HR of 52 and bikes 100 miles for fun. Not so bad.) I've found that "experts" don't always know what to do with people like us - it is VERY hard to find the balance between eating enough to train, but cutting back enough calories to actually lose weight while doing it.

Good luck to you!! And if you start a new group, post it here.
