Hi, Teddy, and welcome emoticon Glad you joined the Team! I am also a breast cancer survivor. I had an estrogen fed tumor removed from my breast in Jan. 2011 and I am doing great. My mom was also a breast cancer survivor, as are two cousins and an aunt on my dad's side of the family. emoticon Staying fit and losing weight is important for us so, I'm glad you have decided to shed the excess weight and get active emoticon

Here is my best advice - not complicated and it works: 1) Use your Nutrition Tracker faithfully, every single day, and print out the daily report on that page so you can make sure you are getting the proper balance of fats, carbs, and protein. This will keep you honest and accountable for your choices. Checking your report each day is critical - you want to make sure you are getting the right % of nutrients and not just eating empty calories. Remember, it is possible to stay within your calorie range eating "junk" but that isn't going to promote weight loss and it certainly won't maintain it in the long run emoticon ; 2) Find a few exercises/activities you actually ENJOY doing and then do them 3-4X a week. If you like what you are doing the chances are much better that you will stick with it emoticon ; 3) Stay active with your Team(s) because this is the place you will get encouragement, motivation, and support - including hugs on those days when things are especially tough! emoticon and; 4) Try to have fun with this journey to slimness and better health! It's a given that if you enjoy something you will stick with it! emoticon

One last thought: it isn't important how fast or slowly you lose your weight. This is one area where 'slow and steady wins the race' is more then just some old cliche emoticon . Spark teaches you a new lifestyle and you need time to re-educate yourself and develop a new relationship with food emoticon .

Hi and welcome to the team. Walking is a nice gentle exercise and so is water aerobics. Just find something you can do and do it on a regular basis.
