Hi and welcome. It can take a while for things to start happening. The best thing to do is to stick to it while analyzing your plan then tweaking that plan until you get the result you want. Look at your nutritional report at the end of each day and see where the greatest intake of calories is happening. Then try to do some substitutions. Everyone's different and we each have to personalize our approach to weight loss/fitness. For exercise, if you take one step today and two steps tomorrow and three steps the next day, how many steps will you be taking each day in a year's time? That's how exercise works - one step at a time.

Achieve success in any area of life by identifying the optimum strategies and repeating them until they become habit - Charles Givens

Hi Wayne,

You and your wife are in a great community here!!! Stay here and you will get the help you need!!! I received a bad report from the doctors a few months ago, they told me if I don't lose 100 lbs in a year I have two years to live.

I am on here daily and have joined many groups for support because I felt lost just like you. I so far have lost 17 lbs and am encouraged daily. Remember to just take baby steps, don't try to do everything at once. When you fail get back up on the horse and take a good look at what you might be able to change.

Sometimes it just might be cutting something out of your diet and the food tracker is a great tool I use daily. It gives you suggestions after you have input all your daily food you have eaten and tells you what you might be lacking or what you might be overdoing.

Also make a commitment to just move daily, doing something a little at a time and daily add on something else. I started out not being able to get up from my bed to the bathroom without running out of breath. I can now walk 200 steps. My husband walks me around our backyard and encourages me. Encourage each other to just get up and move!!!

I also am on blood pressure meds, hopefully someday I will be able to get off of them!!!
