Talking Starting Today!

Hello guys!

I'm new to this site, and as the title suggests, I want support.
(And ofcourse I am willing to give.)
I'm 16, weight 222, 5.9" tall, luckly, I don't look that chubby somehow.
Fun Fact: I'm mexican.

My goal is around 150-160 pounds, I'm going to start tomorrow.
So I'd love some advice, or maybe your own story so I can build strength
for mine. Thanks in advance.

Hi Hadouken! I'm new too but wanted to say hey, and good luck.

I'm around your height and had a similiar starting weight too. I think the height helps us carry the weight well, it's a blessing!

Do you have a plan you're interested in? I don't know if you've counted calories before, but it's a great way to lose because it's free and foolproof.

Good luck with your weight loss! This site is a wonderful resource and community.

Sunday

Hello and the best of luck to you on your journey! Of course, it's not about luck and much more about hard work, but you know what I mean.

Do you have any specific plans of attack for getting to your goal?

I wish you luck in the beginning of your journey! I wish I had made the decision to get serious about weight loss when I was your age (I'm 33 now). Learning to eat properly and exercise now is the best gift you will ever give yourself. I'll be here rooting for you all the way!

Bienvenido It's so great that you're starting to lose weight, I wish you the best of luck! I do calorie counting and that's worked great for me. I use about.com's Calorie Count, which also helps to make sure you're getting all the vitamins/minerals you need, tells you if you're consuming too much sodium, your carb/fat/protein ratio, etc. I watch the ratios and sodium intake now, but when I first started, I just did calorie counting and that was enough for awhile. Mostly you just need to experiment with different things and see what works for you.
