Welcome.. this site is so beneficial to me, and I hope it will be for you too! I've lost 72 pounds since January and am still going strong. The tracker for food helps me a lot, as do the friendly messages from other people doing the same things. Even when I've slipped up a bit, it's been easy enough to get back on track and not just give up. So best wishes.. enjoy the journey! I just took 5 bags of clothes to Salvation Army -- my husband has also been losing weight with me, and it's nice to not have the old stuff hanging around!
