I just joined this site today. I have lost 35 pounds on my own over the last few years. I have decided to get serious and try to lose the rest. It will be over 100 pounds to go. I am new at this. I want to learn what I need to do to get this weight off of my body. I am slowly committing suicide by food. I am a life long hater of exercise but I want that to change. I just don't really know what I need to do so I am here to learn and get help.

I don't know about all of these challenges though. Do you think one would be good for me?:?:

Glad you made it. I join a couple of challenges each month and they really help with staying on plan. There's a bunch of different challenge threads, so consider which would work best for keeping you on track. I usually do daily weigh-ins and an exercise challenge. What's your plan for losing the weight: exercise, proper diet, etc? Those are the types of challenges I would join. The trick with exercise is finding a fun (at least tolerable) workout. If you find one you like (or at least don't hate), you'll be more likely to stick with it. Maybe find a workout buddy, so y'all can keep each other on track (either local/real life or an online buddy). Wish you luck!! Stick with it.. it takes time but persevere and the results will be worth it :)

Thank you. I don't really have a plan yet. I am going to read on here to learn more about what I need to do. I need to just get up and :carrot: :cb::dance::broc: instead of sitting on my tail.

I may take you up on that offer. I am new at this so accountability might be something I need.
