Congratulations on your first step to being healthy! You can do this. There are lots of SparkMembers here that have gone through the same journey. Because we are going through it together makes it easier to stay accountable for our actions! Keep up the great work! :)
Life happens one day at a time. Suppose, instead of saying i have 160 pounds to lose, you start saying “Today, I am going to observe what I am eating because I want to eat less.” Today is what matters and you can control, or if not in control today you can correct it on the next today - once you know what you are doing each day.
