You can do this! Just make sure you do it the healthy way. Feed your body to lose weight. And this is a place to make friends, and we can help each other. :)

Small steps is the order of the day but 1200 cals maybe too little for you. Set the tracker up and try to stick to them, that work.

Exercise needs to be taken with a slow build up and it maybe the low cals that made you dizzy

Good luck

Have you thought about one of the SparkPeople experts? Here in the SparkPeople Cafe, we are just casual participants. The SparkPeople experts, in another section of the Message Boards, are able to respond to the kinds of questions that I notice in your post.

It doesn't sound too good being so dizzy... I hope that phase is in the past.

Great to see you here at the Cafe, and hope that you get the expert advice you are looking for.

I am 34 y/o, 5'2" and 240 pounds. Rather inactive as well (I walk to work which is about a mile per day, 4-5 times per week).

I lost 55 pounds about 4 years ago using calorie counting and walking but, I was VERY obsessed. I would limit myself to about 1200 calories per day and 4-5 miles of walking. I remember being so dizzy that I had to sit in a parking lot and then cried all the way home quite a few times. I would lean on trees from dizziness but, I kept on going. It gave me something to think about OTHER THAN my recent broken engagement.

Needless to say...I was "happy" again and was back to my regular self. And I gained all the weight PLUS more back.

Which leads me to today...and I want to make a change.
