Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

It is wonderful to have you with us. I would suggest not making too many or drastic changes. they don't usually last long term. I think of this not as a diet but a permanent lifestyle change. Will be looking forward to updates

Hi all! I have been steadily gaining weight for years now and finally faced the reality that I need to lose weight. I started last week with exercising 30 min a day and have made some drastic changes to my eating habits. I look forward to this journey even if it may be hard at times. Its nice to be able to discuss this with others that are on similar journeys.
