I've tried food tracking and sticking to a workout plan before, but I've really found that it's the social aspect that makes it all stick. SP has so many great resources, and I think that the best of those are the people who are along for the ride with you.
well you've come to the right place. you've joined a great team who are here to help you in your health journey.
everyones chemistry is different. people who can eat anything and not gain weight have no concept of what we go through. so try this,
first throw out all the junk food in your house.
then Use the food tracker. input everything that goes into your mouth. stay within your calorie range. watch portion size, keep healthy snacks on hand. apple, celery, etc. exercise. you must burn more calories than you eat.
exercising is key. I hope this helps

Hi welcome to the Cooking for One or Two team. It is important to have a support system. It is also good to learn how to cook healthy and get all the junkfood out of your house. I myself am trying to learn not to eat the junk as much. Plus,I am learning how to cook. So, I think this team can help the both of us! I know that we can do this together! If you need a friend, feel free to add me. Hope you are well and have a good day! Holly
Hi, my name is Gina and I joined this site last night after spending the last month telling myself that I could do this alone - which I obviously cannot. I realized that I am that person that needs a community environment to succeed in changing, like many of you. I have already read many inspiring stories and hope to be one myself someday soon!
