Hi, I'm Melanie and I need to lose a lot of weight. Weight has been an issue for most of my life. Once, in my early 20's, I lost nearly 90 pounds.

I've been gaining ever since! Now, my line is "I'm taking time for me." I get up early so that I have 45 minutes to an hour to exercise, and I've committed to a clean eating lifestyle. I'm looking forward to sharing some of my joys and frustrations here with the many supportive members of SparkPeople.

Thanks for your comment and contribution to my blog about Tamoxifen.

So glad to hear about your best friend going off Tamoxifen. She's very brave! And great also to hear that your sister is in such good hands. My very best wishes and thoughts and prayers go out to both of them.
