Question New & VERY Overwhelmed

Hi. I am completely lost as far as a place to start. In the past 5 yrs. it seems that I have been on a cycle of depression/inactivity/weight gain to the point that I can't really remember which one came first. I am now at the point where I have had enough & refuse to put up with it anymore. I am just overwhelmed as to where to begin. Is there anyone who could be my buddy? Does anyone have any advice? Thanx in advance

First off,

There is a ton of advice here, and places to meet buddies. I suggest you look around...find a group or spot full of people you relate to (we have a "Depression and Weight Issues" group that is pretty lively with the posts - I believe its in the "Dieting with Obstacles" area). You might look at specific plans, and when you settle on what you'd like to try, find the area for that. All of these would be great places to start!

Anyway, welcome! Can't wait to hear more from you soon.

Hi and Welcome! I am new here as well , but in my experience you have to just grab the bull by the horns and hang on for dear life! start with journaling , take a little notebook and write down everything you eat , how much you excersize and don't forget to drink your water...write that down to if you have to , then have a journal for YOU , write down your feelings and get it out there , after a few weeks you can go back and read it and see how far you have come!...and ofcorse come here and post as much as possible ,remember , we ALL have a beginning in this journey! You are not alone!
