Glad you took the first step to getting healthy - I know it isn't an easy one to take!! I started CC (Calorie Counters) 29 days ago and have lost 12.2lbs - so i know it can be done. Was it easy - YES and NO. Yes because it allowed you to control or see the information on the foods that you were ingesting - it tells you your intake amount and you just need to stick with it. Now for the NO - my family is a Fast Food family on the weekends because we are usually so busy with the kids/grandkids - I have yet to find anything in fast food that will keep me on track so on days they eat fast food I resort to a low calorie boxed frozen food.
It is a challenge but one that you will overcome if you put your mind to it!! Good Luck!!
