Welcome to the forum Anne!!
You have definately come to the right place for advice, support, motivation and lots of helpful ideas and tips on everything to do with weight loss.
I use to go to Weight Watches meetings and would always find going by myself and never making friends really hard, as everyone else would always chat to each other or they would come with a friend or relative. So that didn't work for me and this was the reason why I joined the forum this time, instead of another try at WW.
Already in my first week i've lost 1.6kg and doing well. I"m getting lots of advice and ideas from this forum which is definately helping me stay motivated.
I really hope this forum helps you too with your weight loss journey! Remember to stay positive and even if you slip up (like I have this week) dont' think that's the end of it, keep on being good with food and exercise and you will still lose weight. You really can.
Exercise tips for someone who isn't really into it - if in the lounge room/watching tv, get up every ad break and walk around the room then sit down. Even cleaning-vacuming, doing the dishes, ironing-all these help as well. Buy one of those circular mini trampolines (I just got one for x'mas, only abut $30/40) and jump on that 10 mins a day. (I was also a couch potato) Little doses of exercise add up and do help to start off with, until you get more comfortable walking or going to the gym. Walk around the back yard for a few times or start with some skipping or star jumps. Little things will help you achieve your goal.
Look forward in hearing about your weight loss journey and getting to know you.
