emoticon from Orange County! I sounds like you are definitely ready to take charge and stay on the right track - good for you!! I find that exercise like walking helps a lot with depression, so does protein but carbs make it worse and so does dehydration and not getting enough sleep. Figure out how to take baby steps, just keep it up, don't worry about slips or small setbacks and you'll reach your goal. Good decision to join us here!!

I can imagine how u feel. ! For me. I read a lot on the site. Cause it helped me how to go about getting started. I started slow with walking and started eating healthy and less. The best thing is know this is a journey and it takes time so don't feel bad. It can be done but know little goals are the way to go !! Here for you hugs. !

loving myself as i am beautiful inside and out!!! Think positive .. you can do it!!!..... i do care.��Life is not easy for any of us, but what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves.� � Don't give up we all can do this!!
Lost 110 pounds so far! i am loving it!
I am now exercising 50 mins a day working up to 60 ! Keeping active is so important!

Hey Caitlyn:

Do one thing at a time so all this doesn't overwhelm you. If you haven't been exercising - try walking 10 minutes maybe twice a day. While you're doing this, read about calories and how to approach a new menu for yourself....but don't go crazy with trying to exercise too much and eating too little. We're here to offer suggestions. Good luck on your journey. Oh yeah, set small goals.....5 pounds at a time.
