Not sure how to start, but must start somewhere. Never really had a weight prob. Until moving out of the city into somewhat of a country life. Before walked everywhere, now I drive. So I've gained ALOT of weight over the past 8 yrs. also the eating that comes with the part.don't have much support from people around me so going to try to do this on my own,guess this is why I'm on here just looking for a little guidance and hope.

Welcome Jenni! The best advice I can give is to use the food and fitness tracker here on WebMD. It will keep you honest about what you are consuming and tell you how much exercise and how many calories to consume to help you on your journey. More importantly, it will help you track your nutrition! Most of us use or have used some food tracker on our journeys. Avoid processed foods; eat whole grains, fresh or frozen veggies and fruit. I personally avoid most white carbs. Get all your trigger foods out of the house so when you reach for a snack it is not something that will get you off track.

Good luck and check in often. This is a great support group.
