Red face I'm the newbie

Hello,

I am the newbie...been overweight for 10years now. Sick of being the fat funny single friend....it's time to be the hot friend that gets noticed. but mostly, I want to just be happy with myself, full of self confidence in any situation. I have to do this for me, I deserve this..time to put me first.
What plans do you love? I need help!
Have started some home videos;30day shred and yoga to start.
Open for suggestions.....
Thanks,
Heather

Welcome!

I've tried a lot of different plans over the years. I'm doing Atkins right now with good success. But I really feel that it's such a personal journey that what works for one person may not work for you. It takes a while, but keep looking & I'm sure you'll find your fit.

I've heard 30 Day shred really does shred!! Good luck!

Welcome Me1st! Congrats on making a change for yourself.


My plan has recently changed from a medically supervised plan to a low carb plan. You have to find the plan that's right for you. It should be something you can stick with.

Good luck!

Hi Heather and

You will find your niche. It just takes some time. But remember don't get frustrated and quit if something doesn't work for you. I am still looking for what works for me but in the mean time I am just watching what I eat, making better choices, and started exercising at home. You can do it!

Welcome to the group, I am following the slim fast online plan, it's helping me a lot with portion control and such. Good luck on your journey.

Whats working for me... healthy mini meals with foods I like, working out with a trainer and setting fitness goals (ultimately want to be a runner). Also, I love "The Firm" program for working out at home. Learning how healthy people eat has helped structure what I'm doing like having a bowl of oatmeal in the morning instead of my previous "lean pocket". It's a transition that won't happen all at once. What a fun journey though.

Oh, and working at keeping a steady blood sugar so there isn't any peak highs or lows which will incite hunger and boredom eating.
