Thank you for all the welcome posts! There's so much info here, I'm beginning to get somewhat overwhelmed. I've been on other message boards before and find that I can sit for quite a long time reading and posting, which is fine, but then I'm just sitting at the laptop, which defeats the purpose of why I'm here!!!! Kind of a Catch 22, wouldn't you say? So, if I don't reply on a regular basis, it's only because I have to pace myself. Question, what's the best place for motivation...message boards or team pages? Is there a difference? Also, how do I know when I have a new message? Sorry to sound dense...

Thanks in advance,
Jeryl

You have the motivation. Start looking for a wedding outfit now and think how it would look in a couple of sizes smaller

I welcome the new members too. Has anyone else besides me, noticed a lot of, uh, well, shall we say, uh, well, flatulence..............since you started trying to eat right? In trying to get more fruits & veggies in (I was very neglectful of them before), I've acquired a certain "aura"...... :) My body isn't used to processing all that good stuff. I wonder how long I can expect this..........before my body gets used to it and calms down.........anyone know?

Hi, just joined tonight and looking forward to absorbing all the info and motivation on this site. I'm 54, almost 55, and have 20 to 25 lbs. to lose. My goal is to be back to my ideal weight and healthy lifestyle by the time my youngest son gets married in October. Motivation is my biggest hurdle right now, so I'm hoping that joining the message boards and posting here will help. Good luck to all of us!
