I've been lurking around a bit and decided to join. I'm in my early 30s, a busy mom, very overweight and ready for change. I want to keep up with my kids. I want to be healthy. I want to see my grandkids someday. I've been digging around trying to find what works for me, but honestly I don't know where to start. I have already cut out soda almost 3 weeks ago. I was drinking at least 1 44 oz soda a day, sometimes 2 or 3. I cut out added sugars and anything with hfcs. At least it's a start that I KNOW will be good. The rest I'm lost on. I get overwhelmed trying to count calories. It consumes me when I try. I think I've over-researched the rest because now I don't know what is safe/good with all the conflicting info out there. I've been paralyzed almost for a week trying to sort through it all. I know I want to do this, I HAVE to, but how? I know nobody can tell me what I should do, but maybe help with making sense? I don't even know if I'm making sense lol.

Sorry that got so long!

So, I've decided that the primal blueprint is what feels right to me. Thanks to those who have read this. Good luck.

Welcome it sounds like u have made some good changes already. I don't follow any plans but cut out my one a day soda habit along with most sugars. I also researched healthy recipes and try to keep my meals to 300-400 cals. I don't always weigh everything just estimate but use mfp to help. If I am not losing I start to be a little more picky. But just cooking healthy, eliminating most sugars and a lot of carbs helped me reach my goal. I used to make rice, pasta and breads 5-6 times a week but now only cheat with one if those items once a week. Best of luck I hope u find something u can stick with and find success on your journey.
