I fully understand! Getting started is the hardest part, but it feels so good afterward! Walking for me was the easiest and best way to get started. My son is 2, and loves to be outside, so him getting to ride in the stroller became a treat he looked forward to each day. I also like doing the dance workouts because if you have small children, they often like to join in the fun and kinda helps keep your mind off of it! Good luck and you can do this! :D

What motivated me to get started was ... as the saying goes .... "being sick and tired of being sick and tired." Truly, I felt awful - physically and emotionally. I lacked the energy I needed to enjoy life with my kids. I'm down about 25 lbs, still have a long way to go, but can already tell a big difference in my energy levels and general outlook.

Getting started is hard. Staying on track is hard. Being out of shape and unhappy is hard. "Pick your hard," as I've heard it said.

Best to you.

I'm a 23 year old mom who is struggling with my motivation. I always say in conversation, I'm unhappy with the way I am. I want to be a lovely more confident me but as soon as exercise gets brought up I tend to shy away. I don't have a gym at my disposal but I do have places I can walk. That's where I need to start I just can't seem to do it. I can, I guess I just choose not to. Help me by sharing advice and motivational tips. I know when I start to lose those first few pounds I'll be stoked to continue but I feel like STARTING is the hardest part. Please HELP.
