Hello and welcome to the team, it sounds like you are off to a great start. Just remember you can do this just take it one day at a time focusing on small goals.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Hello All! I am new to this forum and so glad that I found a group of people who are in various stages of the same situation I am in. Here I am starting a new chapter in my life. I live a very happy life - 10 years happily married 2 awesome kids,a great career, and home, yet there is one thing in my life that I have never had control weight! I know I am not alone, but I finally got on the scale a couple of weeks ago, with a "worse case scenario" number in my mind...and to my surprise I was 5 lbs heavier than what I thought was my worse case! But with more motivation than I can ever remember mustaring before I find myself searching for a healthy lifestyle that I can sustain for life. A new balance and relationship with food and fitness. After 2 and a half weeks I have managed to lose 9 lbs. it is very encouraging.
I am here to get and give support - I know there is going to be imes in my long journey ahead that you all will be there to keep me going. I look forward to returning the favor!
Here is to all of us - a virtual team! emoticon
