Congratulations on beginning your journey to self-transformation! Here are a few pieces of advice to get you started:
1. Be patient and take things one step at a time. You didn’t get into the unhealthy situation you’re in overnight, and you won’t be able to fix it overnight either.
2. Make small changes that you can stick with permanently, rather than trying to overhaul your entire lifestyle all at once. This will help ensure that you don’t fall off the wagon and give up altogether.
3. Find supportive people to help keep you accountable – friends, family, or even a personal trainer or nutritionist – and avoid those who are negative or try to sabotage your progress.
