1 step at a time

I am started over again! I want to take one step at a time. I do have a goal to lose 3-5 Lbs this month. I want to end the year with some weightloss. Today I am going to excersize after a long time...Currently I am 175 lbs and I want to be out of 170's before the end of the year! It has been a crazy battle for the last 4 years and I feel like I am finally ready to get the job done this time around.

My WHy?

my why is that I need to feel healthy and energetic. I want to be more active and have more stamina to live life.

I want to wear those cloths I bought for once I lose weight. I have a cute little black dress..and a nice navy blue 1 that I bought so once I did lose the weight I have something to celebrate in.

FOr my family, they have seen me battle my weight for so many years and I want to win this battle.

WHat's stopping me?
I think it's this feeling of it being so hard and I won't be able to do it.


not pushing myself as much as I can...not excersizing or eating right.
Feeling like I am fighting with myself

Hey there! 3-5 lbs is a great goal for 1 month! Very reasonable and totally doable :)

When you haven't exercised in a long time, it's a good idea to start slowly and with small steps. You don't want to do too much and injure yourself - and you also don't want to workout so much that you burn yourself out and can't keep it up for the long term.

You CAN do this - the benefits will outweigh the discomfort of change. And yes, change IS uncomfortable, but that's how you know you're progressing! :)

I really urge you to read through our Weight Loss Success Stories, which you can find under the Weight Loss Community tab up there ^^ in Diet.com's top navigation. They're all very inspiring!

I'm so excited to hear more from you! Be well -

Thanks Bailey I appreciate it. I will take your advice in starting slow. Thanks for the encouragement! I am excited too.
