Hello and welcome to the team. It sounds as if you are starting off with the right attitude. If we can be of any help, please let us know. Best wishes in achieving your goals.
Above all, don’t live with regrets. Approach life with perseverance and dedication to the things that matter most to you. Success is never easy. It remains up to you whether you will give up, or fight through the tough battles to earn whatever it is you want.
It is so much easier if there is some one right there with you for making these changes. I started with tracking everything and slowly made changes such as brown rice, whole wheat pasta and lots more vegetables with dinner.
Welcome!! I'm glad you like the site and I think its great that you and your husband are doing this together. My BF and I work together to be healthier and its so nice to have that support at home with you as well as in your online community!! Good Luck!

Welcome. I like your little intro. How wonderful that you're planning ahead! It's awesome that you and your hubby are working as a team. I hope your kids will learn healthy lifestyles and not have to go through the learning steps we are having to do in our adult years! Good luck with your new job too!

Great to meet everyone through their intro's. I'm a mom of 4 with a new job starting in September. I want to take this month before hand to get my home and fitness routines in shape so that I can walk confidently into my new position. My husband and I are working together to create a healthy lifestyle. We know we will benefit and our 4 kids will have a good example to follow. Consistency is usually my downfall. I like this site because I can track everything and get some accountability from the community. Great success to you all. Glad to be a part.
