In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Welcome DRUBEL I just joined three weeks ago and so far tracking my exercise and nutrition has made all the difference in my efforts to lose weight and get fit. I have lost 3 pounds! I can identify with adult kids moving back home! My son moved back two years ago after living on the other side of the country for five years. I also can identify with having stress in my life, but fortunately I have had a two month break! I am a public high school teacher and we go back in two weeks. I am very lucky to have a very nice school nurse who will take my blood pressure whenever I ask. I wish you all the best in your journey to better health. Cheryl

I'm new here and not sure yet what I am doing. I really want to lose this weight and need all the help I can get. I work, am the wife of a disabled husband, the mother of a daughter( who needs to grow up) and the grandmother of three and they all live in my house. Stress is my biggest issue as every time my nerves go so does the food, right to my mouth.
