    Post Eek! I've gained 15lbs this winter

    Yikes! After a winter of too much Brie, fine pate, and red wine, and too little activity, I have discovered that I've gained 15 pounds and am now pushing the overweight range for my height (5'7", 144 lbs.)

    The obvious is to lay off the rich food and add more activity to my lifestyle, but what comes after that? Can anyone direct me to a website or book for beginning weight trainers? Or, simply give me some advice?

    Thank you kindly

    144 is considered overweight? Holy Crap! I need to book myself into a Fat Farm

    For my frame it is. I have a small frame; if I were in shape I'd be about 130 lbs or so.

    For the record, I look ok in clothes, though (at least, the ones I can still wear), so I suppose it's probably just a matter of building muscle mass to make them fit a little better...

    Here's a great article, written by a woman as advice to men trying to get their girlfriends into the gym. It has good beginner diet tips, as well as a couple of sample exercise plans.

    http://www.t-mag.com/nation_articles/199vixen.html

    That particular website is a huge diet and training resource. I recommend you read all the back issues. Some of the stuff may seem hardcore, but all the information can be applied to the average person.

    Hey, there's an idea!

    I'll pick up some cute bodybuilder, and get him to take me to the gym with him.

    Women do seem to lack willpower

    There are some tricks you can do right off the bat to lose some weight. These are listed in the article, but they're worth repeating.



    1) No soft drinks, candy, pastries or other junk food.

    2) No fast food and no fried food.

    3) Eat many small meals per day instead of two or three big ones.

    4) Cut back on breads.

    5) Drink a gallon of water a day
