Welcome, Pam. This is a great place to get gobs of stuff on being healthy. Just try to think healthy for you and your family. I had to do strength training from a chair before I could even walk a mile. Don't be afraid of all the little things you do but never give up. For me it has paid off. We are glad to have you!!!

Daring to Discipline = deserving the good life

Welcome Pam. You're not specific regarding your kids and grand kids but anyhow it should be a great source of stress. So please be careful about your weight loss goals in the light of all that stress...

Never say never

You've come to the right place. I found the nutrition tracker helped me to make small changes that have made a huge difference. I switched to whole grain breads and pasta, brown rice and snack on fresh fruit. These are changes that my family has also changed. When I first started I was making these things just for me and then when I ran out of regular pasta, they ate the whole grain one and didn't complain. I did the same with the brown rice and breads.

well you've come to the right place. you've joined a great team who are here to help you in your health journey.

everyones chemistry is different. people who can eat anything and not gain weight have no concept of what we go through. so try this,


first throw out all the junk food in your house.

then Use the food tracker. input everything that goes into your mouth. stay within your calorie range. watch portion size, keep healthy snacks on hand. apple, celery, etc. exercise. you must burn more calories than you eat.

exercising is key. I hope this helps.
