emoticon . yes you are in the right place to make a lifestyle change. First lof your foods several day so you can see what you are eating, then you can SLOWLY start to make changes. Walk just a few minutes and add a few steps daily ,and join a team .You will be on your wayto a new lifestyle .

Welcome to SP. The journey is difficult, but rewarding. First, getting healthy has to be the most important goal in your life. Secondly, you have to set small, but reachable goals to get to where you want to be. Thirdly, you have to measure your progress and celebrate. That is a mouthful, but necessary. So, nutrition and exercise will be at the top of the list. This site has a multitude of choices. Explore the choices, make a plan, and execute that plan. Don't get bogged down with the unimportant, just go out there and "Do It". I wish you the very best.

Hi All,
Don't know if I am at the right place ? I don't know what to do ? I don't know where to go ? I don't know who can help ?

Right now I feel that I am in a bad place. I feel worthless, fat, a failure, useless etc.etc.etc. I just want to stay in the house, I don't want people to see me, I feel that I can't speak to people, who would want to know or be friends with me ?

I have had a weight problem all my life ( I am 63 now ) I have tried all the diets. Everything I have tried works for a short time, but I just can't seem to keep going. I do ok, then someone offers me a glass of wine, and I just can't refuse it.

I am a very shy person, and I feel that people only like those that are a little loud and confident, if I have a couple of glasses of wine I feel that I am not so shy and that people will like me more.

I need to change, I want to change. I want to loose weight. I want to wear nice clothes and look smart. I want to be a better person to my family.

I need help. I realise that I can't do this alone. How do I stay motivated ? How do I socialise without eating and drinking ?

Please, Please, Please Help


Will I get there this time ??????
