Hello and welcome to our team Elise. I do understand what you are going through as I have been overweight all my life. This year I decided to do a lifestyle change. With that I made up my mind to lose weight, eat healthy foods and to workout. I am happy to say since January I have lost 20 lbs. The good thing is that I am having fun in doing all of this. We can diet, but after we lost weight we go back to our old styles and then we pick the weight back up and more.
So, what I am saying to you is this is the first start to a new and healthier you. Make the lifestyle change and not just dieting. Set a plan to take one day at a time. Start with an exercise plan of maybe exercise one day a week and work yourself up to two and so on. When you have the urge to eat try eating something healthy like fruit, veggie or a piece of cheese.
Cooking a good balance meal is not just good for you but your family too. This site is full of so many ideals, along with all the support that you will receive. The recipe's are great, I have tried a lot of them and I have even shared the meal with my family members outside of my home and they love it. They have some great workouts that you can watch and work along with them.
Just know that we are hear to help each other and that we have all been there and done that. Just keep talking to us and letting us know how you are doing. Stay positive and just keep believing in yourself and you will be losing weight in no time.
