Hi everyone! I hope I can post here. I am 33 and started Jan 1 with my weightloss. I started out 200lbs and down to 194. I just started this week walking the trails that are around my town and did a little jogging (only down hill) I haven't jogged since high school and didn't know if my knees could handle it. I also push my jogger stroller with my 22 month old. I find the steep hills are a kicker but hey, it will get better. My knees are sore, as well as all other muscles that I forgot I had but it feels great. I have cut my food portions in half and hopefully this weight continues to come off. Any kind of advice I welcome. My weight goal is 150 so got lots of work to do. Just looking for tips, what to do and what not to do. Thanks everyone!

:wel3fc: There are a lot of great forums and great people on this website. The 30-Somethings Forum is a great place to start, but I would encourage you to look around the site. There may be other forums that you relate to as well. Congrats on taking the first steps to take control of your weight and your life, the beginning is always the most difficult part.
