There are plenty of ways you can use the forum here - join the challenges (yes, another one!), discuss food and weght-loss techniques, keep a progress blog, and so on. The website attached to the forum has a great deal of useful information such as healthly food and exercise, nutrition and how to change from unhealthy to healthy habits. Whatever you do, do things that help you stay focussed on the goal. Losing weight and becoming healthy is well worth the initial discomfort of change.
