  • I'm so sorry to hear about all of that! Maybe start with dinking more water, and cut out the processed foods. Fresh fruits and veggies and salads for snacks/with meals. Eat smaller meals more often (every 3-4 hours) And as far as exercising, maybe start out with walking. Make it a longer walk when you can. That should be a good start, best wishes to you!

  • I definitely would begin with walking strategically, meaning make a plan to go so far today, and walk that distance for several days, then stretch the distance to another point, and walk that for a few days, then keep stretching that distance every few days. Go no matter what the weather. Dress warmly or dry and enjoy the fresh air which is a real boost in making you feel better.
    And like the last poster, definitely cut out sugar, even bread for a while. Good quality protein (the size of a credit card Or weighed 2-4 oz), 5 servings of fresh veg. and fruits, will give you healthy calories. Lastly 8 glasses of water a day. Write your foods down every day to be able to see what you are truly eating. You will find so many benefits jumping off our cultures eating habits. :) Hope this gets you started. I know it will work!!
