Good start in reaching out to others for some help. Back in July I started working out and it was very slow going. I wasn't losing a lot of lbs. but did go down 1 pants size (I was losing inches rather than lbs.). I no longer have access to the gym I was going to and am worried that I will gain back the 18 lbs. it took 6 mo. to lose. I feel so much better with the 18 lbs. gone but wan to lose about 30 more so I am in for the long hall.
It is comforting to hear that your husband is also trying to live a healthier lifestyle so that should be helpful to you as well. Walking is highly recommended!!
Best of Luck to you in your start on a new look and new life!!
