Hi neal_nadine; welcome to FitDay.

As far as boosting your metabolism, regular exercise and building muscle are the best ways to do it.

Diets don't work for a lot of us. There's a quote that says "the best diet is one you don't know you're on." See what swaps (for healthier stuff) you can make for things currently in your diet, so you don't feel deprived. Desserts and alcohol, unfortunately, can be some pretty big calorie bombs, but you could switch out for lighter versions.

Also, in your post, it says "we." It is often easier if you have someone to make these changes with you...do you have a partner/support system in this?

At any rate, hope to get to know you!
