Here I go again

Hi everyone

I'm starting week one today. I've got a lot to lose - around 7 stones - so I'll be around a long time!

I've got to make this work - I'm 62 years old and sore all over with joint pains and feel that if I don't do it this time, there might not be another chance

Sorry if that sounds depressing but I need to be realistic and I'm actually feeling upbeat about this - seeing it as a real challenge and opportunity

Good luck to you all! Keep in touch!

Welcome, I hope you find what you need in this community. You'll find many motivational posts here! Start by dowloading an app on your phone to keep track of calories (Fat Secret, My Fitness Pal...), it's a great aid! Good luck!

Just keep going and remember even the little steps are better than none at all!
