Welcome! I've been here less than a month myself, but can tell you that this is a great place to find support, motivation, and the tools to achieve your goal. I've found the nutrition tracker to be my best resource, showing me exactly what I'm doing wrong - and right. I'm a little fanatic about tracking, I'm afraid... but find it very useful to use to plan my meals in advance so I can make adjustments where needed. There's also a ton of great information available - be sure to check under the "healthy lifestyle" tab above if you haven't discovered it already. Best wishes --

Hi....just joined today, so, I'm trying to figure this all out. One thing is for sure...I am DETERMINED this time! Is there anyone who wants to be a "weight loss" buddy? I just need to be accountable to someone, or, maybe that's what we do with these forums...we are accountable to everyone? Two things I always tell my kids....never, Never, NEVER give up and If you think you can, you're right...if you think you can't, you're right.......So, now I have to start practicing what I preach. I think I can (I know I can) and I will NOT give up. I feel like I'm eating pretty healthy and keep thinking I can lose weight on my own, but, it's not happening, so, I think I'm going to use the tracker first thing to be accountable to myself.
Any get started tips are greatly appreciated.
