Hi Amy, that's very true. I once had an underweight coworker with dangerously high blood pressure. That was a struggle for her!

Welcome to the team!

Hello! I'm happy to find this team. I'm right around where I want to be around 130-135 but want to make a more conscious effort to keep a more healthy lifestyle. Thin people have problems too such as high cholesterol, depression, and low energy. I am also trying to work on social skills which I recently posted a blog about. I'm looking forward to getting to interact with you all.

Hi Barbara,
I just joined this week as well and am still finding my way around. I am still getting used to the idea that I actually made my goal! Never did that before and I have tried. It is indeed a thrilling, heady experience!

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

Congratulations Barbara! You show a lot of dedication and discipline, that's more than a pound a week! I'm 5 4-1/2 and 129 though my goal was 125 I am wavering in about a 5-pound range... Now to get the range to waver from 120 to 125! Have you bought your new skinny wardrobe yet????
