I know the big picture diet and exercise, but to tell the truth when it comes down to it I am lazy and if it cause too much work to my already busy schedule it is likely to be put off. I drink to much soda but when I go cold turkey I relapse. And I like food that taste GOOD, but is easy to prepare. So I wanna go into a healthy life style on step at a time not a crushing wave that I'd be more likely to break away from. I know I need will power and I want to work into not wanting the bad stuff not just quiting and returning. So I am going to try to tackle one task at a time until each is beat. So where should I start, mind you I haven't built the will power yet.
P.S I am not morbidly obese but am over weight and would like to lose about 40 lbs to start. Also healthy alternative recipes are welcome!
I am in the same boat as you, tried dieting for 30 days, I "relapsed" last week and I didn't lose any weight, I was disappointed! I am back at it again, I know I also need to take baby steps I would like to lose about 40 LBS as well. I have been down this road, a low cal/low fat diet worked for me so I try to discipline myself to log all my food www.caloriecount.com; it tells me if I am eating enough carbs, protein, fats and all that good stuff. But the other moms are right, even I have to realize that weight loss for some of us needs to take place in baby steps. Good luck momma, you can do it, all you need really is the desire and the commitment to yourself!

Get your ass off the computer and away from the tv! lol
Sweetie I am in the same boat I love to have junk food. Best advice is eat more fruits and veggies and whole grain and cut back on sodas and junk. Go outside and enjoy walking, play your favorite music and dance while cleaning, instead of using a mop, get on your hands and knees and scrub, while watching tv do some jumping jacks,/lift dumbells/ squats etc.. and remember nothing happens over night! good luck!
