Welcome to the team! I'm a newbie too, but the one thing I can say is to try your best to visit this wonderful site everyday. It's very inspiring and there are wonderful groups for every interest you can think of.
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

Hello! My name is Dani, and I just joined SparkPeople tonight! I'm 22 and I wish to lose 40-45 pounds. I have always been one to get fast food all of the time. I never really knew how to cook a small meal! So, any advice would be welcome! I'm kinda new to the whole weight loss thing. And as I learn, I'll be sure to help you guys in return :)
P.S- I realize this is an ironic username for such a website, but it's my username for everything, so I decided to stick with it :P
