Thank you everyone for the warm welcome!

@Dawn, yes I have been using this awesome site to track everything - I even changed my refrigerator completely with all fresh vegetables and fruits. I live alone (I'm 30) but my parents help from time to time, dad will get me some cans of Progresso Light and when my mom visits, we shop at Bed Bath and Beyond. I'm looking to invest in a Ninja Blender to make some delicious protein/fruit shakes.

I use all my measuring tools to get the proper measurements. I actually love to cook (almost made it to MasterChef auditions but got sick). So I create recipes using SparkRecipes which helps a lot.

My goal is 140 - but I use my iCalendar for smaller monthly goals. I also list what workout I'll be doing and what time. I have a bit more flexibility since I work from home.

Thank you for all your support! I'm more motivated now than I have ever been in my life, lol.

emoticon Seems like you are well on your way and know what you're doing.I would try to find a challenge and join one .. they help keep the motivation up and are fun.. A nice way to push oneself.

I find tracking my food and being totally honest helps. it has really opened my eyes..Do you have your Goals wrote out ? Are they Specific ? Are they visible ? these things really help,,

best wishes on your journey,

My name is Adrienne. For a long time I've been in denial about being overweight and have decided to make this new lifestyle change. I'm about 2 weeks into the program now and dropped from 207 to 203. I'm aiming for a goal of 140 by October. Any tips or suggestions are highly appreciated!

I'm doing various types of workouts - training 3 days a week for a Zombie 5K in October and on other days I walk indoors with Leslie Sansone or play Just Dance on the Wii. I try to keep things different so that I have fun while I work out. So far things seem to be going well! Any tips or suggestions are highly appreciated, or feel free to stop in and say hi!
