Welcome, Fitwithin has given you great advice, I could not have said it any better my self. I too am a chocolate lover, I eat the fiber one 90 calorie brownies when I need a chocolate fix, they taste great and you will not feel guilty after eating one. I am not a big soda drinker, but when I drink one (no more than one weekly) I make sure it is a diet soda. I have a rule of not drinking any calories......It helps me to drink more water, diet green tea is also very refreshing and calorie free.

Welcome to a great team!

Thank You FITWITHIN... I have started making small changes.. I stopped the sodas and thought I was going into withdrawals...LOL.. Next, is chocolate and sweets (that's the biggest challenge).. Great advice on the food preparation will give that a try..

Welcome to the team! The one bit of advice I can give is to make small changes at a time. This way it doesn't feel so overwhelming. Here are a couple of examples. If you drink whole milk graduating down grade to 2% and so forth. If you fry food start grilling, baking, broiling, boiling. I'm really big on using my food scale, measuring cup, spoons, and bowl. I have snack size baggies to for portion control. Keep containers in the fridge with precut veggies, fruits, chicken or what ever. This for me helps to cut down on temptations and making less unhealthy choices. I know it's a lot of work, but it's worth it. I can fix a complete meal in less time than it will take to go to a fast food restaurant. Now, for exercise you have to find something that you enjoy doing, so it doesn't feel like a chore. You have to figure what time of the day is best for you. I'm a morning person and on occasion I workout in the afternoon and evenings, but I struggle morning during that time of the day. You can start out by just walking 3 10 minutes a day. That will give you your 30 minutes. Start looking at exercise as a daily way of living. Like brushing your teeth.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
