New Member / Day 1 Thread

This is Day 3 of Week 1 for me (I just found this sub like 5 minutes ago.)

I'm a 25 year old female who would be considered obese. I'm 5'5 and 350 lbs. This is the heaviest I've ever been and it's taking a toll on me, not only on my body but my mental state as well. I don't go out like I used to, and have basically become a hermit except to go to work. My husband hates that I have no urge to be around other people, no energy, and no sex drive. I want to change. Not only for myself, but I want to have kids within the next few years and it's not going to be an option unless I get this weight off of me.

I've been overweight since the second grade, but I was always into sports. I played basketball, softball, and in high school I threw shot put and discus for our indoor/outdoor track and field team. I'm no stranger to hard work, sweat, and vomit. Since meeting my husband I've gained almost 150 lbs. I recognize that it is solely my fault for getting this big. No one did this to me, except me. I also recognize that I didn't get fat in one day and I won't lose the weight in one day.

I'm open to constructive criticism/help/whatever you wanna throw at me. I know better than to go hard the first day out, so on Monday I did 20 minutes of some moderate to fast paced walking. Yesterday I did a 20 minute cardio workout that included some jogging, aerobic exercises, lunges and squats. Today I wanted to go back to walking however the weather is not permitting that so I'm trying to decide an alternative.

My meals consist of a greek yogurt parfait for breakfast, a salad with meat and a vinagarette dressing, some type of snack (fruit mainly), and dinner is chicken and veggies.

Can't wait to hear the feedback, and please- don't take it easy on me.
