I am Newt to most message boards that I go on, but I am a physician in real life and always telling my patients to stop smoking, drink lightly and loose weight. The first two have never been a problem for me, but obesity runs in my family and at 55 it is time for a change. My goal is 50 lbs (217 to 167) while eating no refined sugar, and avoiding processed foods. My daughter, who is also overweight, decided to become a vegan. Not sure I want to go that far, but a near vegetarian diet with lots of unprocessed foods does appeal to me.
Anyway, stop my boring story and just say hello!
