It may take you a few weeks to master using the nutrition tracker, but you will still be able to eat healthier and start adding exercise. You are joining during the most difficult time of year to lose weight. Even if you don't lose a significant amount, if you don't gain the seven pounds the average American gains in December, you will have accomplished something.

Think positive. It's not 'busting your butt', it's making changes that will improve your quality of life, your self image and your health. Those changes are not necessarily difficult, they're just different to the way you have been living (that has led you to where you are). If you want to be somewhere else you need to change direction. Sounds like you are ready for it so I wish you all the best. kind regards, A

So I'm Thistlescratch, a 21 year old college senior in MN. I've always been pretty curvy and okay with it, but in the past few years the stress level has gone up, and I've been either cooking for myself or eating in the dining service...or eating out. I knew I had been gaining some weight, but I didn't realize just how much it had been until I stepped onto a scale and was depressed and somewhat horrified. This is the first time I've ever been on an organized diet, so I really hope it goes well. I don't want to bust my butt for nothing, after all ;)
