Well Hello SANYALEENA,Welcome to the team, I am Verm/Carolyn you've come to a great place for support, where in ohio are you? I'm in Vermilion, Ohio, near cedar point I guess, everyone usually knows where that is, lol Lake Erie is at the end of our street, this site can be a bit overwhelming, I suggest you just take mayb a half an hour each day to look around, and then come back later and look somemore, you can log your food intake, your exercise, support on the boards, come introduce yourself on the daily boards, check out the other boards also, we are here for you! so make yourself at home, ask questions, glad your here! Hugs,Verm

Welcome to the team! Some suggestions that I have are to take baby steps through this life style change. Remember this is not a diet. Make one change at a time. If you mess up on a day, just start over the next day. Don't give up. Read the articles. They are very informative. Post on the team pages. There is a vast knowledge of information there for you. Track your food every day. That way you will know how many calories you are eating. Track your fitness too.
If I can be of any help in your life style change journey, please let me know. You can either e-mail me or post a message on my page.

Hello from Delaware County... Congrats on taking that first step... I am a work in progress myself, I have been on and off many times and this time I am determined to stick it out. Taking it one day at a time has worked well for me and know that every day is a new chance to get it right. You can email or leave a message on my page .. I check in about once a day.
