Yeah, there's a lot to learn, but I've found that I pick it up as I go along. When I first started, I didn't pay too much attention to the details of the pie chart and nutrition chart and whatnot, 'cause it was all I could do to limit my calories. Now that I'm getting the hang of that, I'm thinking more about balancing the chart and such. My big thing is that I didn't want to overwhelm myself so that I just ended up giving up 'cause I put to much pressure on myself. You'll figure out what works for you!
BTW, we have a 7-day motivational thread over in the women's only corner (it doesn't matter if you're a guy or girl, we accept all kinds
) if you want to jump into a support group kind of thread - we all just keep each other going, help each other through the rough spots, etc.
