I am 30 years old and I am tired of being fat. I am just so confused as to where and how to begin. I don't know anything about working out. I have joined gyms in the past and have even hired personal trainers to no avail. I go in and I am so overwhelmed and intimidated I give up very easily. The personal trainers I have had in the past helped me lose some weight, but they never taught me anything. There was no explanation as to why we worked on a certain machine or station. I couldn't continue paying the high fees only to create a never ending cycle of building a crutch on someone else to the point where i was helpless without them. Is there somewhere I can go to learn how to work out and eat properly? Should I just focus on cardio until i trim the fat and then start looking into the weights? or should I do both at the same time? I work a lot of really long odd hours. I don't usually get breaks during my work shifts. I make miserbly poor choices in food because of being so tired from work. When I come home, the only thing I want to do is be lazy. I am to blame for my current position in life and I am ready to take control of it. I just need major help. Thank you anyone for reading this and even more thanks for any advice that is given.
