I joined a while ago but I am only seriously getting started now. I've never done this kind of thing before and I'm not normally comfortable posting messages. However, like you, I also need to work on my health because of physical problems- pretty much all related to my weight. I just hope I can do it this time 'cause I've tried (and failed at) so many different diets --I just get very impatient and then, easily discouraged. I'm hoping for the best this time around. Good luck to you!
