Ht. 5'6", Start: 230 lb, Today: 228 lb (BMI: 37), Goal: 165 lb - hey, i'm kinda new to the board, but i really want to start losing weight, and figured i'd try this out for support and what not to see how it works for me. i haven
t officially started my diet yet, i plan to tomorrow. i just recently had my gallbladder taken out last week due to gallstones, and hoped that this surgery would help sort of jump start my weightloss from a lack of appitite, but it just hasn't happened. Does anyone know of some great beginner videos to watch that keep you motivated and interested? or any tips or suggestions?

go on youtube and look up weight loss before and afters. theyre super motivational because you get to see how amazing they look after. also, google weight loss success stories and theres a ton on there to keep your head high and keep you going. ive lost 55 pounds so far, its hard but its so worth it. just find something motivational every day and take it one day at a time, because every pound adds up, and before you know it, youve lost 10, 20, 30 etc. good luck! you can do it :)
