My name is Bekki and I'm new to this community. I joined a while ago, but I've never posted anything. A brief description of me: I'm 20 years old, five foot three and somewhere in the vicinity of 170 lbs. My main goal is simply to drop a size or two over the summer, from a 14 to a 12, but I also would just like to get a little bit healthier.
Overall I think I have some good habits- I love vegetables and organic food, I really enjoy a lot of active things like kayaking and hiking, and I enjoy working out (even though I don't do it often- guilty as charged)- but Ive never been able to turn a few healthy habits into a healthy lifestyle. I don't work out enough, and while I love healthy foods, all to often junk food is more readily available.
Anyway, I'm just looking for some tips on how to get started and I also wanted to invite anyone to check out my journal. I post all kinds of things, from info about what's going on with me, to motivational quotes, to websites and advice that I'm trying and have tried.
Thanks in advance for any advice or support!
This isn't a terribly active community... you might check outhttp://community.livejournal.com/dietingsupport/
As far as exercise goes, I suggest you invest a small amount in some equipment & workout videos... make a workout schedule, maybe two days a week, and work out on those days no matter what. And find a workout buddy, if you can.
I added you! I'm trying to lose weight and find it inspiring and motivating to read other weight loss journals.

Don't Miss Out
Hi Bekki - I think it's important to not let exercise or counting calories take over your life! If you find moderation in exercise and eating right, you're way more likely to stick to it in the long run. Especially since you're only 20, it's important to still be spontaneous and go out with your friends and things while adjusting your fitness to fit in all in. I find it helpful to have a plan A and a plan B for working out- I wrote about how I do it here - http://community.livejournal.com/gymrats/1896357.html?view=30621861#t30621861
