Welcome it sounds like your ready to make a commitment to yourself and start living a healthy life style. Just remember take it slow make small changes and as you master them add more. You do not to make to many changes at once. Use the site for help they have great articles on nutrition,health and exercise. I find the food tracker to be the biggest help it let's you know exactly how many cal ties you have eaten. Good luck on your weight loss journey.

We're here for you ,

Good for you! My wake up call was a ride to ER so you are already doing better than I was! Take baby steps and reward your self for achieving the little goals. They will add up to your big goal in the long run, but it wont feel so overwhelming. Tracking food is an excellent start, don't forget to throw in a little 10 walk here & there. By the way, little slips are OK. Just don't let it set you back, get right back on track. emoticon

welcome. Take it slow and set yourself some goals - not to lose 75 lbs. for eg. but to lose maybe 10. It's easier to obtain and you won't be discouraged with the time it takes. Once you've reached that first goal, set another one to lose another 10 lbs. and so on until you reach your ultimate goal. None of us are perfect and we all experience set backs - don't let them get you down - move on. Again, welcome.

So I woke up this morning from a dream about the cashier at my local fast food restaurant refusing to fill my order because I was in AFIB(somehow there cash register knew this). What can I say....dreams are weird, LOL
My family has a history of heart disease, and it does cross my mind sometime. (ya think?)
But THIS DREAM, is scaring the crap out of me.
SO, here I am.
I know I will stumble, I know I'm not perfect and will not be perfect on this program. What I also know is that, I must take steps and make strides to change the way I am living!

Today I begin....baby steps, tracking every bite, learning from what I see on my "results" and "totals"
With each day and each week, I hope to see change and improvement in my choices and a downward trend to my measurements and weight.
