Hello 🙏🏻 I have just started looking at this site and am amazed at the level of information and support. Why dont our doctors tell us about this?

I know I just happened to find it whilst searching the net. I have seen two different doctors, neither said anything about this program. #missingatrick

Welcome, slowly , slowly is what it’s all about, I don’t think anyone thought they could do this when they first started, it’s not a race just go at your own pace, and don’t be scared to repeat if you have to. Get some headphones ,some good music ,and listen to Michael , Good luck with starting your new adventure 🏃‍♂️

Hi Believeyoucandoit. Definitely get help and support here. How do you eat an elephant? ( Not suggesting you try! :) ) One bite at a time. Slow and steady with small targets along the way, have a small celebration when you get to them.

Every one will be rooting for you. Look around the forum and you will find people with big losses and stories that will inspire you.

Best wishes for a good start and the ends you desire.
