Hello! I saw your page and we have some things in common - about the same age, about the same amount of weight to lose, etc. I am starting again also! Looking forward to being your "friend"

Hi, check-out this book "One Small Step Can Change Your life, The Kaizen Way" by Robert Maurer, PhD. I love it! (it was referred by Susan Jeffers of "Feel the Fear and Do It Anyways!" also excellent) We really CAN CHANGE with baby steps... Diabetes runs in my family so I feel for your struggle. God Bless and Keep the Faith! emoticon emoticon
