So it's my first time posting here and I have a question.

What do you do to get on the scale the first time? I want to start trying to lose some weight. But I can't imagine knowing what I weigh now.

well, honestly that is the first step. facing the reality of the scale. i weigh each week, but you could just weigh once a month or so.

first steps:

1. weigh yourself
2. make a food plan (how many calories do you want to eat a day? how much fat? etc.) buy a notebook to write down everything you eat. this really helps keep you honest with yourself. stock your pantry and plan healthful meals in advance.
3. set your first short-term goal. for me, it's 10% of my body weight. So, 15 lbs.
4. don't try to do it all at once. start off just dealing with your food intake. once you feel like you're getting it, add a small amount of exercise into your routine.

i'm here for ya!
