from Orange County - I'm glad you're here! My suggestion is to make tiny changes one or two at a time instead of trying to change 'everything' [or change a lot!] - it takes energy to create a new habit so trying to do too much at once can drain us to the point we just give up and let the old habits slip back because they take less energy. So try one or two smaller changes like drinking at least 8 glasses of water and taking a 30-minute walk every day - when those behaviors become HABIT, then add another healthy change. If you focus on the process and creating health instead of 'losing weight,' you'll find it much easier to sustain the new lifestyle.

I'm ready to get serious about losing weight. I've been telling myself I want to be healthier for years but when push comes to shove, I like my bad habits too much to let them go. Hopefully some outside accountability will help me to hold my own feet to the fire.
