Getting motivated (help wanted AND needed!)

I just read about in people mag. At this point in my life, any help is welcomed :-) as of today, May 17 (2 days before my 35th b-day), I just weighted myself - 218 lbs (and I’m only 5'6) Seems like high-time to do something about it!
I have a great, top-notch elliptical machine at home (as well as a set of weights) – the problem is I never use them! I live in Marin County, California so I have hundreds (thousands?) of hiking trails right outside my door (and the weather is great all year round). All I need is motivation!

Hi I am new too, and read the same article! I am 40 and weigh in at 205, I started on Friday and I already am down a few pounds.
My husband started jogging a few months back, job releated has to be in shape! I was sad, I want to be him, it seems easy...well after a long chat with him, he said the 1st few months were hell...but now he's doing great. I told him I want your help...and he has agreed to help me...we too, have the equipment here..but he's a 100% right going outside now that our Iowa weather is nice it's been a help to me. I or we, depending on our schedules take our kids to a pretty flat track..they bike and I walk/jog for 2.5 miles. I timed my self last night (my 3rd time out) and it took me 41 min! I am going to work at making that better. You can do it...feel free to email me, I would love to chat with someone..I am on the almost 40 group!
