Ash Wednesday fitness

    Hello. This is my first post on these message boards. I feel like I know a lot of you already because I read them regularly.
    Well, tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, and even though I'm not that devout, this is something I still like to participate in. My food has been out of control, and I do have a cholesterol problem. My asthma also gets worse when I'm gaining weight. So I guess what I'm trying to say is that for Lent, I'm going to make the commitment to not eat any sugar or white flour products. I've been really afraid about my health lately so it's something I need to do.

    By the way, I think I should give up dating or interacting with men, period. The whole thing just drives me crazy, and I get so stressed out especially on first dates. I think I just need to concentrate on my health for now. Because I've been on my own for so long, it's just so much more comfortable to stay in my shell. I guess, I'm just not ready yet.

    Sorry for such a negative post, but that's how I'm feeling today. Rose

    Well I just read Rose's note here after talking to her on the phone a bit ago and we are going to meet for the first time tomorrow in which I am looking forward to. After reading this from Rose, I understand how the who dating thing is and I really hate dating but I am glad that she answered my profile and is willing to meet with me.

    Hi Rose, I am not into "lent" because I feel as though you should feel this way daily about GOD. Rose, you need to learn to "LOVE YOURSELF" from your picture I see that your nice looking and as far as your health I would suggest you to read the book "Natural Cures" That They Don't Want You To Know About. Kevin has put a lot of good things in there and I didn't believe him until I started doing some of them and they work! The dating thing...well honey you said that you have been alone for a while, so look at dating as your choice because it is, you already know that you don't need a man to take care of you.Don't let them men make you think that your less then them! This is YOUR choice of whom you want to be with!Don't settle for less then what YOU want is out there. Hold your head up and be proud of who you are girl!

    Hi Rose

    I have to confess to doing a lot of tossing on Ash Wednesday as is the tradition in the UK !

    If you went for a brisk hours walk every day you'd feel 100% better and if you need to work harder than that at it then all you need is a step. Do an hour on a stepper each day and you'll see the weight falling off you and it wouldn't involve any unpleasant exercise, plus you'd get to do it whilst watching tv or listening to music. The trouble with the gym is that to anyone overweight its too public and full of PPP's plastic perfect people.

    Good luck
