Can I join? My name is Alexis and I weigh 213.2 pounds. This is the heaviest I've ever been and about 15 pounds came during the quarantine. I need to lose weight but always lose motivation after a week. Seriously, I'll download apps and do at home workouts but a week later I just stop. I joined a gym today. I always feel pretty self conscious there so I'm trying to motivate myself to actually go. I was the only woman there and the only obese person there. There were about 5 men on the other side of the room and they were all in shape. I felt awkward. This time I'm trying to get into some fitness communities to keep the motivation going.

Hi I'm Jodi from IL I just want to say I am well into the 200 club I weigh 257 I have been a yoyo Dieter for years I work as a CNA at an assisted living place and I also work as a home care worker for one of the home care agencies I have been a CNA since 2005 I went up on the CDC.gov websight and used the bmi calculater on there and discovered that my bmi is dangerously high it is 40.5 which puts me at an even higher risk for critical illnesses so I am telling myself that now is not a time to procrastinate about losing weight and I am looking forward to seeing good results

Sometimes working out has the opposite effect for me: I work out so I feel like I can eat way more and sometimes take it too far. I need to find a balance. Or maybe just don't factor in my exercise toward my total calories for the day? But that doesn't seem right either. Does everyone on here adjust their calories intake if they workout that day? I'm kinda new to calories counting.🤔
