Hi everyone,

I've been lurking for a couple of weeks, getting used to the program

I'm a 47-year-old mom living in Ontario, Canada. Like many of you, I've done every diet imaginable. I also had lap-band surgery in 2002, which helped me take off and keep off 90 pounds. However, I haven't been able to get any lower and still have about 65 pounds to lose to reach a healthy BMI.

But what's really driving me this time is the fact that I have developed osteoarthritis in my knees, hips and spine. It's affecting my ability to walk. I know I can't fix the damage that's already done, but I hope to prevent it from getting much worse. I feel like I am not givig my daughter the mom she deserves. So this is not just a journey to look better; it's a journey to feel better - physically, mentally and spiritually - and to BE better.

Thanks for listening...
