i haven't posted here in forever! i think i'm finally back down to my prepregancy weight, but about 10 pounds above my goal. i'm able to fit back into most of my old clothes, which is nice, but my belly and legs are super flabby and i don't feel great about how i look. honestly, i'm not really that concerned with the pounds so much as i am my overall fitness.

i've been tracking what i eat using thedailyplate.com since january, which is what i attribute my weight loss to. i was between 160 and 155 lbs when i started tracking, and now i'm down to 132. i'd like to be 120 (i'm just over 5'2").

i really need to start incorporating some regular physical fitness into my day. it's nice being on my feet and moving around at my job, but it's not enough. i try to get regular walks in, but it's not enough, either. we moved within walking distance of some good running trails, and i told myself that i'd get up in the mornings and go for a run before heading to work. i've yet to do this. i'm also thinking about maybe getting a yoga dvd or something.

i've never done yoga, but i'd really like to try it. it seems that everyone i hear from who does it gets really toned and in shape, which is my main goal at this point. i can't afford to take a class, which is what i'd really like to do, and even if i could afford it, i don't know that i'd be able to manage it, with my daughter and all. i'm thinking of getting a dvd from amazon.com. has anyone done this? are there any good videos you'd recommend? or does anyone have any good tips on good ways to get fit, if you can't afford a gym membership or lots of equipment?

Denise Austin has a great Yoga and Pilates DVD that I bought and love. I haven't used it in awhile, I had a baby 5 months ago and I have fat to lose before I can start toning up more. But I think it's a great work out. :)

That's so great! Congrats!

I enjoy the Winsor Pilates circle workout. It got packed with the rest of my life when we moved to St. Louis a few months ago, but it will be coming out soon. I would love to take a yoga class, as well, if we could afford it.
