I am 33 years old, and weight 283 pounds and am only 5'3". I would appreciate any help on this that I can get. I also smoke which I know is adding to the BP and I am trying to quit that. Hoping this site will give me some answers and help me lose what I want to lose. I have a pic in my mind of what I want to look like, toned and just really great. Great to meet you all here
Welcome! We are here to help with anything you need. I personally lost 100lb back when I was in my early 20's, and have kept it off succesfully. There are many people here with experience with using exercise and nutrition to cut fat and build a better body, and we all want to help any way we can. If you have any questions at all, don't be afraid to start a thread. There's no flaming here, just positive support. It's why this site is so great!
