    Sounds like you're on the right path. Exercise alone will get you started but don't neglect your diet. Keep on keeping on and stay focused.

    Sounds like you are doing awesome with your workouts!! I love this app so much because it holds me accountable for what I'm eating and how much I'm working pretty new so don't know a lot yet but if you've got the attitude I know you can do it!! :):):)

    You can do it Chad!! I have three grand babies that need me. Surely helps to have a set goal, and use each day to get that much closer to that goal. Keep counting your calories & exercising. As soon as you know it, you will have achieved all you set out to!! Good luck!!

    I think documenting would be an awesome story that you can share with your family years from now, and others that might be in the same situation, and like you said, its self motivation as well. I regret not documenting mine, but its all good.

    I'll send you a request - I'm also looking to lose a lot of weight and make some general lifestyle changes so maybe we can support each other!
    60 mins cardio a day is incredible, by the way! Great work!

    You can do it, you are on the right path. Acknowledging that you have the motivation and motive to change and will power to do so. I would recommend to start with cutting out soft drinks and other stuff with empty calories. I personally did Keto and it’s been great for me

    You’ve acknowledged the hardest part which is realizing you need to make a change. I think you’re off to a great start. Don’t be discouraged when things don’t go as planned, because everyone makes mistakes, just simply just have to learn from them and strive to do a little better each day! You got this!! :):)

    You're off to a great start. Keep on making sure you go consistently. Try to go the same time every day to really solidify the habit. Once you lose a comfortable amount of weight try to incorporate weights(preferably compound movements). The people at your gym would probably love to help

    Chad. Ditto to HappyKat5’s comment. Acknowledgment is a major step in and of itself. 60 min cardio is also great. I’m pulling for you. Richard
