Welcome to the team. I think with reading the various article that complement your goals, and use the tools available here on Spark....you could have a good plan up and running within a week. Plans have a tenancy to be flexible and need fin tuning however. I have bee fine tuning mine over a year but the basic plan is still in place. Good luck to you on your weight-loss journey as you build your new lifestyle.
"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're COMMITTED to something, you accept NO EXCUSES; only results."
I tired of being sick and tired all the time!! Time to do something about it!!
Hi! My name is Michelle and I am turning 40 this year. I have been overweight most of my life (and obese for the last several years). I love that there is a team focused on slow weight loss! I decided this year to rethink the way I have been approaching changes to my lifestyle. In the past I have tried to change everything overnight, or I start slow, show some success and feel like I can make big changes, then I run into trouble. This year I am focusing on taking things very slowly, only making small changes each week. At my current pace it will take me about 20 weeks to have my complete fitness & nutrition plan in place. But that's ok because my main goal is to be healthier and happier. I know that the weightloss will come, but I'm ok with it coming slowly.
