Hi Welcome!! I am a newbie also, and I have found so many ways from all the wonderful people here to help with my diet and exercise with the advise and experience that they have!
I also feel inadequate next to my police officer fiance', that we often get looks like "Why is he with her?" We are getting married in October and I am hoping to lose the 28lbs that I have listed as my goal!!
Best of luck, You will do great!!!
