You have taken the first step, which is deciding you want to do something about your condition. First thing is to stop putting yourself down. You've decided you want to make a positive change, and that is a large part of the battle, so feel good about that. Decide how you really want to be and pledge to yourself to get there! It takes work and dedication, but there are many examples of people on this board who have done it!
Welcome to the boards. We are here to help you achieve your goals. First things first, are you currently exercising, if so how much and how often? What about your eating habits? Give us an idea of a typical day's diet and we'll go from there.
Congratulations on starting your journey.

I think that 155 lbs may sound "overweight" but it depends on your body type and how much muscle you are carrying.
I am the same weight and height as you, but I "read" about 120-130 lbs. Even though the number sounds heavy,
it really depends on your muscle/fat ratio.
Maybe starting slow would be the first step for you. It was really hard for me to incorporate working out into my
routine (coming from a strict couch potato/McDonalds background) but I really tried hard to make it a priority. I also
had health problems that made working out a necessity - there is nothing like a doctor telling you that you have to
exercise or you might DIE - but you don't want to wait until that happens. You should make a committment to yourself
to get healthier - don't worry about pounds, just how you feel. Even walking 30 minutes a day to start will make you feel
better and feel more energetic. Food wise- that is my downfall too - I found that stopping and thinking about what I
am about to eat for 10 seconds helps me to make better choices. I don't think that it is fair to cut drastically down b/c
that's when you will fail. The nutrition section on this site also is great.
Little steps turn into big steps. If you really want to do it, you can.

Ok, let me first start by say ~ "You are not a fatty"
Let's just get rid of that word, that mindset, that negative feeling all together.
You are obviously here posting on this board for a reason. Perhaps you've noticed some really awsome things about us here - we love rebuilding our bodies and beyond that, you won't find a better site with more up to date information than right here at ABC!
As previously posted, this has to begin with you. No one will be able to do this for you, but if you make the committment and move forward with this, you can totally transform your body into whatever you choose!! That has to be exciting to you!
"Honor self-promises" Bill Phillips (EAS) wrote this statement in his first book ~ Body For Life and it has stuck with me for many years. You will have to dig deep and realize that nothing worth having is ever easy but it can be achieved through hard work, discipline and committment.
We are here to help~Believe that! So where do we start?
Well, Dave from up above asked some questions that i'm going to repost here:
Are you currently exercising, if so how much and how often? What about your eating habits? Give us an idea of a typical day's diet and we'll go from there.
With this information we can help get you started on the right track. Do feel free to ask as many questions as necessary, but also remember ~ You have to committ to change! It starts and ends with you.
Good luck on your journey...let us know how we can help!
