    When I started I didn't do any real exercise for about 6 months. First I focused on my eating deciding to choose to eat healthy most of the time and track my food. I set a reasonable calorie goal for me of 2,000 calories. I am 5'8" and at the time weighed at least 220 and was 61. Figured 2,000 was a lot less than I'd been eating and that would allow me to not be hungry. Sorry about your broken foot and you want to be sure that is healed.

    As for lunches, I stopped eating at the cafe at work or joining in on pizza and Chinese food and started brining a sandwich made with a lean protein on whole wheat bread and I bought the small bags of reduced fat chips. I also brought fruit for a morning and afternoon snack and that worked for me. As we move into the fall you can make a big pot of vegetable soup or bean soup and bring a cup of that along with your sandwich. Or chop up lots of veggies and have a spring greens around and bring soup and a big salad.

    You'll find a lot of good information here along with a wonderful supportive community. Getting active here getting and giving advice and sharing stories really is a great way to help you succeed.

    Welcome to sparkpeople so glad you have joined us

    As for lunches for work - as I am retired I don't really have that problem but would think that if you went to the groups you have joined and posted that question to them they could give you some good ideas

    The more you participate on all the groups you have joined the more you will be encouraged and motivated
