Hi and welcome to the team. Good for you for wanting to get healthy before you start having kids. Then you will be a wonderful positive role model for them to live a healthy life. Personally I cannot exercise in the morning, so I can't give advice there. I am NOT a morning person and I like my sleep. Because I work shift-work, my best time for working out is in the late morning when I have to work an evening shift. That is where I am at my best. If I work a day shift, I will attempt to get a walk in after work, or maybe force myself on the treadmill - although I do use the excuse that I am too tired from working. Haha. I have used running as my method for exercise for the last year or so, and I really don't care for it. But I force myself since it is cheap and convenient. But I know that I do need to switch things up a bit. You will figure out what works best for your body (and soul) and then will find a groove. Be patient with yourself during the experimentation phase. Best of luck.

emoticon to Spark and the Team!! Congrats on the weight you have lost previously, this is evidence that you CAN lose! I was not a morning person as far as exercising, but now I am up with the birds!! My secret? I started showering before bed, putting on my workout clothes and went to bed! In the morning, I just got up, ran a brush thru my hair and headed out the door!! After a few weeks of that I was able to stop wearing yoga pants to bed and allow myself that 15-20min of time to get ready in the am.
As far as the health eating: I went to extremes. Sundays I pre-cook all my meats for the week, portion them and planned my meals. These steps have aquired my nick-name: Becci, the Diet Nazi! Everyone has a different method and you will have to find your own on your journey. I look forward to sharing in our journeys!

Hey all! I am brand new to this site, but I have just come out of 3 months of using Weight Watchers Plus online (and had the iPhone app). I had some success with it, I lost a whole 15 lbs in 3 months lol... it did work for me, when I stuck to it. That's the biggest problem I have is sticking to a program. I am 28 years old, married last September, and I was at my heaviest the day I got married... a whopping 186 lbs, for a tiny 5'1 frame! I am ready to be in baby making mode, but in order to do this I need to lose about 50 lbs to be my optimal weight. I am focussing on that for the next 6 months, and I could really use all of the support I can get!

What are some ways that you found worked to get you motivated enough to stick to eating healthy? Also, I need to find a way to get myself out of bed in the morning to do a workout! I am motivated but I never am motivated in the morning! Any tips or tricks?!

Thanks everyone!
