Hello - I started this program yesterday and had a very good day. I met all my goals (food, water, and exercise) and it felt great. I even had a spot for some dessert last night. I am using the message boards in order to develop a core support group for motivation and for the occasional need to be talked down from the ledge - before I actually need it. This ain't my first rodeo; however, I'm hoping it will be my last.
