  • Hi welcome to the group. Very supportive people on here :-)

    Starting at a larger weight is daunting (i started at 19st) But it is doable. Make small changes to get started like walking more each day, pedometers are really cheap and easy to use. Also the easiest thing to do as a larger person. I did step ups on a wiifit board while watching tv nothing too strenuous. Now i use a cross trainer and weights at home instead. Its a long journey so break it down into smaller goals. I usually aim for 1st every 2 months, as you get lighter and fitter adjust your goals accordingly. Are you calorie counting? Or just eating healthier? Best tip drink plenty of water and always eat breakfast.

    good luck hope it goes well

  • Glad to help anytime :-) i didnt even plug the wiifit board in sometimes i just used it to do step ups while watching eastenders, go at whatever pace you are comfortable, then up the speed or intensity.
