  • You are in the right place. Great post, it is a lifestyle change! The best thing for me so far is that I do it every day, AND feel like it is better than the way I used to live! My start weight was 240, one month ago. I am 5'10" I got weighed at the doctor so I don't know how much weight I lost cuz I don't have a scale. But I can feel it! My pants are feeling so big. My heart felt so unhealthy when I started. I felt like sitting down all he time because just standing and walking around was a huge strain. That feeling is actually going away now.

    You have so much to look forward to by doing this. The challenges you face will have you appreciating better health so much when you achieve it. My heart doesn't beat too fast when I just roll over in bed, and I don't take that for granted today.

    If you need any help using those tools, we are all here to share our experience on what we did with those tools. There are other new people like me, and pleanty of people who have been successful for years who still reach out to others. Welcome and good luck to you!
