Welcome, my advise is to take it step by step. Make lifestyle changes that you can maintain. No point going all out making radical changes that you can only maintain for a short time. Never underestimate the cumulative effects of small changes made consistently. Start by tracking your food and exercise. Tracking your food will give you a good idea of where you can make positive changes. And if you are not exercising now, commit yourself to just 10 mins a day for the first week. Anything you add to this after will be great.

Set yourself realistic goals - remember that there are 52 weeks in a year so just 1lb a week is 52lbs in the year! Not bad! It is the consistency that does it.

Use this site, it is fantastic and there is great support on here. If you ever feel down or overwhelmed by it all come on here. And finally, never give up, this is a lifestyle change, not a diet that had a beginning and an end. You will feel unbelievably better for it!

Margaret

Never give up, never quit, never surrender

You only fail when you stop trying

There is nothing to hold you back except you.

You can press forward long after you canít. Itís a matter of wanting it bad enough.

The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.
