Welcome! You have begun a journey to better health. Change is not easy at times but you must always remember the goal is worth the effort. By goal, I am referring to total healthy and lifestyle. For example, when walking your knees endure much pressure. For each pound overweight, it is equivalent to four extra pounds of pressure on the knees; 10 pounds overweight would be 40 less pounds of pressure on the knees when even 10 pounds is lost. This is why you celebrate each small goal reached. You are making progress!.
That's how I was able to tell I had really gotten out of control - when I took ALL the pictures and wasn't in any of them!.
The program is great...you are going to love it, and will be amazed at how easy it is and how great you feel. The forums are great...don't miss the "Men's Room" where some of the guys on the boards hide..
Dw-we started a new thread to bring together those of us who are just starting out in Aug/Sept. Come join us there..
Iamboman-you are so right, that is why I am usually behind the camera. I had my husband take my before pict.s. How HORRIBLE !!!!! But truly motivating..
Hey, come on over to the new thread: .
"Aug/Sept 2010 Starters, here we go".
Join the group of new starters all in one thread to support each other..
See you there....
I am afraid of not doing this the right way..
Is it only me that is afraid even to start because there is a possibility of failing, again..
I am sure that everyone is afraid of failure..
There is no failure on this program. You simply can't fail at "life." You might get temporarily derailed or slip up along your path, but it is not like there is a deadline to achieving a healthy lifestyle. Stay focused...acknowledge speed bumps and detours if you run into them, but keep your eyes on the path and always return to the path. There is only success on the path, never failure, and the path never disappears. It is always within sight and within reach..
Plus...we are all here to hold your hand along the way when you need it, lift you up when you slip, and point you back in the right direction whenever you find yourself confused. You are not on this path nor this journey on your own..
Very common fear. Especially if you have perfectionist tendancies. If we don't even try to lose weight, it can't be said to fail because we didn't try. Perfectly normal, perfectly human. But being overweight is one of deals where the only way out is to just face it head-on and deal with it. It's NOT going to go away if we pretend we don't notice it.
I looked at NutriSystem as "food college", when I started. Keep an open mind, be prepared to give up old habits, and build new ones. Explore this strange new world of fruits and veggies... they're actually pretty good.
You've got to be willing to work the program as written. But I can say for certain this does work, if you follow it. You can do it too..
