Where to start? New to this, well I'm 28 years old, 2 kids and am a super obese 20 stone 2lbs. Can't quite believe how easy it was to arrive at this weight - but it's pretty much been a stone per year since I left home at 18. Body is a mess, hypoglycaemic symptoms, can't keep up with the kids at all, feel the effects of all this weight and just want to sleep/sit all the time. Doesn't help that my partner is super skinny and can eat whatever he likes (and does) bringing home crisps and unhealthy snacks each evening. Need to know where to start on this long journey. I know I need to do something and am using myfitnesspal app to diarise my food and calorie intake. Hoping it helps. But what other motivations did you find really help and keep you focused?
