I have never been this heavy in my life - I am around 147-148 right now- and it is starting to depress me. Meanwhile I have done nothing to change it. I got the 30 day shred dvd and have not tried it once. In my defence (to myself?) I had an injury I was working on healing up which is starting to feel better- so n some level I am timid to jump into it. I take walks every day but don't really get ANY cardio. Is the 30 day shred ok to just jump into and start or should I sart with something milder? I can't really get to a gym and there aren't any proper gyms with varying workouts available to me. I Am feeling ashamed of my body which sucks but sort of stuck in a rut of not sure how to motivate to change it. IT seems like a huge endeavor.
Any tips for getting started?
Wanting to transform your body requires dedication and consistency. One of the reasons people give up before they reach their goal is because they dont see immediate results. I havent heard of the 30 day shred dvd but if you can focus on cardio activity 5 times a week for at least 30 minutes you should see solid results. Nutrition is going to play a big part in losing weight/toning up.

I've found livestrong.com to have some useful tools that aren't too involved and easy enough to feel motivated to make better choices.
I'll use their free tools - myplate to keep track of what I eat and put in whatever active stuff I can manage. Personally, I like seeing the graph move around, and just getting reminded at how many fewer calories a cup of grapes is vs. 5-6 oreo cookies (or something ) is a helpful reminder. Helps me notice and balance out my habits a bit, even if I don't use it all day long and only get in a few days a week.
Haven't used the shred dvd, but I actually think SIL has a good friend who's done those and had awesome results, so .
The 30 Day Shred DVD is GREAT. It doesn't take long to do, so it's easy to stick with it. I noticed a difference in the first week. I think Jillian Michaels is a bit of a bully in her workouts, but they are very effective, so I get over it!
