Making my intro...

Hello, Ladies!

I'm Duch, *waves*  

Over the past year I have lost 64lbs (210-146), and have gone from a size 20 to an 8/10.  I did it through a combo of exercise and portion control.  I can eat anything I want, just not EVERYTHING I want.  

My exercise routine is really simple. I run for 20min and do 100 crunches. I aim for 5 days a week, sometimes only get in 4.  In the early days I started by walking in place, and now I am up to sprinting and interval training (4mi in 20min on my hard days).  Still in place, right in front of the kitchen TV... but I take it very seriously, as seriously as all of my road running counterparts (just less cold!).  And the results speak for themselves =o).   

I joined this group because I am beginning phase 2 of my goal.  At this point I am less concerned with wt loss (though another 10 would make me happy!) and more concerned with reshaping and sizing my body... preferably down to a size 6.  I need to find ways to modify my workouts, I want to really target my abs and glutes and I want to increase flexibility.  But most of all, I joined this gp to be a part of the support network.  =o).  I've been going solo this whole time and felt it would be nice to share wisdom, experiences and support with others in the same boat.

Welcome, Duch! Congratulations on your success! I can't wait to be that close to my goal!!
I think you'll love this group! Lots of great ideas bouncing around here, and definitely a ton of support. Success stories are always motivating, especially when you've lost it the "old-fashioned" way like you have. Great job and welcome aboard!
