Hello and welcome, it sounds like you are off to a great start and have the right idea. Just keep pushing forward with small goals and you will see progress. Before long you will be looking at bigger goals.
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

I've been a member for awhile now but haven't actually been trying to lose weight. I sat down with my husband and we talked about it and he's on board to help me. This is a great site for motivation though. I love looking through the success stories. I saw a picture a few days ago that said " a year from now you'll wish you had started a year ago". I say this to myself every birthday. September 10th was my 32nd birthday and by my next birthday I will not be saying this. We can help each other through the process.

Hello. I am new to this site. I just joined yesterday. I have decided that I need to get healthy for my kids. I have 3...16, 9, and 7. I have really let myself go this past year. I got laid off of my job last November so now I am a full time college student. I will be getting 2 degrees after this semester. I am really nervous about finding a job after that so I need to look and feel my best. I am trying to make small changes that I can keep up with. I started the Atkins diet Monday and am still doing good on that. I have never lasted more than 3 days before! I ate spinach this morning and I am walking my kids to the bus stop instead of driving. As I see more results it will motivate me to do more. This looks like a great site with lots of support.
