Don't forget the 8 cups of water. They are hard to get in at first, but your body starts to like it. I was startled by how many calories I drank every day, and when I switched to water (even with a little flavor by Mio or Crystal Light) I not only lost weight but felt better too.

Great advice there! Start small--like tracking food--and keep building on those small steps. You might pick one thing to start with on food this week, then next week commit to 10 minutes a day of walking, or some other activity that gets you moving. It gets overwhelming when you try to change too many things at once, but one or two things at a time is not so bad. You can do this; the hardest part sometimes is getting started.

Take some time to familiarize yourself with the tools on the site and once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. I suggest deciding to change one thing a week. Examples would be:

1 - This week I will track everything I eat in the nutrition tracker (sometimes the shame of having to record something will prevent me from eating it)
2 - This week I will measure all my food before I eat it (eating true serving sizes make you realize exactly what you are eating)
3 - This week I will switch from full fat/2% milk to 1%/skim milk (saves calories and fat grams, so you can use them to eat other things)

It makes it easier to make the change than trying to do everything all at once. Do the same thing with your fitness and you’ll be rocking the weight loss!!!

Remember, this is just like learning to walk. You need to take small consistent steps towards the goal. You will fall, several times, but as long as you get up and try again you will be running before you know it!!!

I look forward to getting to know you better along the way!!! Good luck on the journey to a new healthier, happier you!!!
