Hey There...one of the best things to do to shrink your belly are leg raised on a captains chair...it takes awhile, but the results are pretty amazing...3 sets/15 reps is a good start...best to u on your journey!

Thanks for the welcome all! I am really excited...I just printed out the shopping list and this is EXACTLY the kind of info I need to help me with this journey. After a pretty bad morning..I'm starting to get excited to try some new things..

Now, I just need to learn how to put meals together and COOK! LOL

Be proud of your accomplishments, no matter how big or small. Try not to compare yourself to others...this is about YOU...and YOU are worth it!! :))

Welcome! You sound a lot like me. I decided to do 3 minutes of sit ups a day for the next two months and see if that helps my stomach - I challenge you to do the same and we can share our results!

Nothing tastes as good as how being thin feels.

Being overweight is hard, losing weight is hard, maintaining a healthy weight is hard. Choose your hard.

Hello and welcome! On the coffee....I use Truvia :-) I am not sure if it is the "Cleanest" option but it is better than Splenda or Sweet & Low. Best wishes to you on your journey!

I am pretty much new to the "clean eating" lifestyle.
I have lost about 25 lbs and I am pretty much at goal weight..MY PROBLEM...My stomach is the ONLY thing that is extremely large. From what i am reading, the only way I am going to get rid of it is to eat clean...Ive been trying to follow this for about 1 1/2 mos now.

I am 46 years old, mother of 3 (21, 20, 17), starting to go thru menopause..and NEVER had a flat tummy. I am praying there is still hope for me!!

I am unfortunately, a HORRIBLE cook/meal planner.

Searching for some help to get me on the right track.

I have a few things that i cant give up yet, like my breakfast items, coffee, FF creamer, 80 cal yogurt, and kashi go lean...other than that...Im ready for all else. (I AM going to try to substitue the creamer with almond milk but i would need to use a sweetener..ARE any sweeteners allowed?)

I welcome all suggestions. Thanks for taking the time to read my "boo hoo woe is me" story...lol

Be proud of your accomplishments, no matter how big or small. Try not to compare yourself to others...this is about YOU...and YOU are worth it!! :))
