I've only been here a short time myself, but I think you will find the people very supportive and there is a wealth of information available (be sure to check under the "healthy lifestyle" tab above), as well as great tools for tracking your nutrition and fitness. Planning my meals with the help of the tracker is helping me immensely, you can juggle things around until you get the right balance of carbs/protein/fat, as well as the total calories and other factors, like calcium and sodium. I'm looking forward to "seeing" you around here!
