WELCOME....When I first started, I had more than 134 pounds to lose to get to my goal weight. I say more, I didn't weigh myself at my highest but about 3 months in, I weighed in at 284. My goal is 150...for now.
I am still on my journey (I've gone from a 22/24W to a 14 regular- almost a 12). Although I'm still on my journey, my initial advice:
1) Pick a plan you can stick with long term. Stay away from short term fads. I calorie count and it works for me.
2) Find an exercise routine that you enjoy and start slowly. I started with Walk Away The Pounds and have recently "converted" to Tae Bo
When I started, I couldn't do all the jumping and kicking. Walk Away The Pounds was a great work out and really helped me slim down.
3) Remember, one day at a time, one meal at a time, one pound at a time. But, hey, you're at an advantage. You've already been successful once which means you know you can do it.
Cheering you on to goal
