don't despair, cut up a plate of fresh fruit salad and munch on it then you will get a nice sugar rush (as long as you're not diabetic!).

It's okay for your first name to come up as your user name if that is what you are referring to. We know nothing about you other than that. ... My name is April. Just know that when you are ready to talk about it, we are here and are willing to talk & listen.

Fitday is great for your situation. Just put your lifestyle option as sedentary and it will estimate the number of calories you burn every day.

sedentary is unfortunately an understatement, I have a full time "access to work" provided person so that I can work this means that other than walk to staff room for coffee I move very little at all. with no exercise, burning calories is very difficult

Smile Just breathing burns calories

Our bodies burn calories just living and breathing. Fitday computes the number for you, and you eat less than that. It's really amazing how much you can eat and lose weight--it just takes the right food and small portions.

Walking during my lunch time almost five days a week since February. Haven't the past 2-3 weeks as it has been over 85* and I can't get sweaty and return to work ... I also work out at home with a home gym and dumbells. I do some balance exercises as well for better coordination. Other than that I have been eating less. I still basically eat the same things, just less of them. And I changed out my often unhealthy lunches for a salad daily during work days. I add breaded chicken to the salad about once a week. Or tuna but mostly it is just veggies and cheese. Oh and fat free dressing. I like the tast of Ken's FF Italian. I buy it in pre portioned packets so that I guarantee I am only getting 20 calories per serving because it is so easy to dump more on that you should.

I hope that helps. I also work at a desk. Only difference for me is that about 50 times a day I stand up and walk three steps to my printer & back as I am printing customer invoices all day long.

Any questions....please ask. It is not easy getting started when you are sure where to begin.
