Hi! This is Kristi. I am just curious.. is anyone here at the very start of his or her lifestyle change, such as I? At the moment I cannot exercise more than a few minutes and eating healthier is proving to be much more difficult than I imagined. I am determined to spend the rest of my life making choices that will positively impact my health, but support from those who are at the same beginning stage seems like it would help 100 percent.

We could transform our lives together and be there for each other all the way through!!! Very Happy

hi Kristi and welcome. there is lots of support from some really good people here. I myself am at day 20 of my lifestyle change and I use this site as my bible; its cathartic. you can do this - you've made the first step and that is the hardest, just work out what works best for you and your weight loss journey and as you say....Just do it.

While I'm at the very other end of the journey, I just wanted to say welcome aboard. You're in the right place for impending a healthier lifestyle and for losing some weight.
Make sure that you make your journey enjoyable and sustainable and you shouldn't have any trouble reaching your goal. Put in the effort needed. Trust me, it's ALL worth it!

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

I consider myself in the middle of my journey as each day presents new opportunities to do better and make wise choices. While it always seems that it's 'all about the weight' there is so much more going on here. Improvement and enlightenment isn't directly tied to the bathroom scale. Enjoy your journey and feel free to buddy me.

I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

I think I am still considered in the beginning stages. I do have four months behind me, but I still have a long way to go and I am still in the stages of experimenting with different diets and researching information to find out what will work best for me. This site has been incredibly helpful for me as far as support and accountability. If you look in the challenges sections, you can often find people completing challenges that are similar to your goals.
