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

Hi everyone... I just signed up here yesterday and have been busy trying to investigate all the great features of this site. I'm 64 and have a goal of losing nearly 100 pounds, and maybe getting my BP back to normal without meds (my doctor seems to think that even 20 pounds will do it, so we will see). Lots of positive energy here, I have a long way to go but I KNOW I can do it with your help -- and I hope I'll be able to help someone along the way, as well!
