Hi, I'm Lisa-Marie, 23(next Saturday) and I weight 240lb Four years ago I weighed 160 and I know that's a far fetched goal right now, but I'd love to get back down to it. I started walking again tonight after almost a year and walked 2 miles non-stop and I plan to walk at least 3 Times a week. Anyone have any tips to helps reach my goal. I need a good support system and I love making new friends! :)

Eat clean and don't you dare think it's possible...go after it and on days where you feel it's impossible seek perspective. Hats off to you for starting again. Recomend you to try some fat burning exercises too

Walking a few miles is definitely a good start! Once you feel up to it, lightly jog here and there while you walk. Just remember no one or nothing can defeat you but yourself. Don't give in to yourself, instead improve yourself!

Hi,  good on you and keep it up.  I started walking part of the way from work and downloaded the cardiotrainer app which records your walk including steps,  kms and calories burned.  I've just started 4 min workout on weekdays and 15 on weekends.

Calorie Count at the begiminh of this year I set a goal to get down to around 150lbs my starting weight was 227. I started out "eatting healthier" & exercisizing but quickly realized it wasnt working so I then started counting my calories consumed & burned every day. Keeping track in a journal. I initial lost 20lbs in 2 months then stopped doing it & put back on about 11 lbs. I started this again the first of July & am down 6.2lbs. So far Im doing well support in it helps a,lot. The reason I slacked off was bc of a lack of support I didnt ever post in the forums or talk to anyone about my goals. Now however Im finding out that in order for me to achieve this goal I need support. Good Luck!
