Wow, rustie that really has been a rollercoaster, hun
I wish you all the best, we're really a nice group of people, feel free to ask anything, anytime
The best 'starting out' advice I can give you is to be brutally honest in this forum, if you binge, put it down in the confessional, if you eat something bad, put it down in the diet section or on your progress page. I find if you hide something, or pretend you did some exercise that you didn't, the only person you're fooling and hurting is yourself.
You'll be dropping the kgs in no time, I'm sure ♥♥
