Welcome, and thanks for the friend add, btw! There are so many great resources here! I recommend starting with the nutrition/food tracker because that is the key element in weight loss for most people. Then, once you're comfortable with tracking your food on a daily basis, start exploring more areas of this site. I still find something new here almost every day. By tracking everything since May 2011 and using the other features here to keep myself focused, I lost 90 pounds and have maintained for over two years now. It takes a little bit of time, but it is sooooo worth it!

p.s. I live right by Nokomis as well! Great area!

emoticon and emoticon It sounds like there is work for you. Take time to build up some tolerance for exercise by starting out with 10 mins. 2-3 times a day if you can do it. Best wishes on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

I am a stay-at-home mom to two young kids - toddler and an infant - near Lake Nokomis. I'm overweight and in need of a drastic lifestyle change. I've been "trying" to do this for years without success but I'm ready to reach my goals. I look forward to mutual support with everyone!!
