First off let me welcome you to the team. Second ...you can do this. You've taken the first step. One thing to remember is track your food. It helps to see where you're going wrong and right. Plus take advantage of the message boards they are a great support system.

HI my name is Bonnie, I have been over weight for well over 15 yrs. I keep getting bigger and bigger. I have tried different diets but for some reason I don't follow thru. I need help giving me ideas to keep me motivated.
Here is what happened to push me. I had visited a friend I had not seen in over a month, yes a month, he called me and said "I am very upset with you" hmmm I could not for the life of me figure out what I had done. Well he went on to say that I have such a beautiful face, but I had let myself go and I needed to do something about it. I was shocked at first, he asked me if I was mad at him, I said no because it takes one heck of a friend to have the courage to tell someone that, not knowing their reaction. I am now past the shock, and hurt, and now I am mad that I have let myself get this fat... So next time I see him, he is going to see LESS of me...... Starting today, I WILL LOSE THE WEIGHT AND WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
