Welcome! I love this site! I joined 5 months ago and have lost 20 pounds. For the first 10 weeks I did NOT weigh myself thus did not sabotage myself with mind games. I felt so positive and motivated every day because I could see myself shaping up every day and the clothes were looser.
I have a 17 year old son in Grade 12 and a daughter in university. It`s a good time to get back in shape and feel great! You can do it too!
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. ~ Aristotle
Use the nutrition tracker to track all you eat. Good Luck!!
Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege. Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul. Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY.. it is the key to heaven. I live in El Paso, TX

You are right, making it a priority is the way to go! It needs to be like a job that you do, or a project, which pays you with great satisfaction (eventually). Best of luck! We are right there with you!
If not now, when?

Joined today. I'm 54 with a 17 y/o daughter still at home. I recently moved and have no scale, But I know I need to lose weight, my pants are too tight! I'm guessing I'm about 140-145 and I'm 5'2". I'm looking forward to making weight loss and exercise a priority. Hoping this will also help balance out workplace stress.
