| | I need encouragement
I'm 5'2" and am currently 20lbs overweight. I have a small frame and used to weigh like 90 lbs. So, this extra 20 lbs is alot for me. I have just got a gym membership and have an appointment for a fitness evaluation.
Could any of you recommend a way to pace myself so that I don't get burnt out. The last time I tried to get into fitness, I went crazy. I'm one of "those" people, it's all or nothing with me. I did stairmaster for 30 minutes, then I'd do treadmill (jogging at about 5 mph) for about 45 minutes. This wore me out-completely. Within 3 weeks, I'd abandoned by workout, my joints and muscles were constantly achy and I felt unbearable fatigue.
I thought getting a fitness evalutation would be helpful but I also thought I'd seek support from some of you who are more experienced at this sort of thing.
