Welcome to the Oregon team. Almost three years here of daily check in and I still haven't discovered or used all the tools. My advice is to set a timer so you won't be at the computer all day and check in daily and just keep exploring. I limit my time from 15 minutes to 2 hours daily. I gave up TV to play on SP. Much of what I have learned has sunk in and starting to show on the scale and my clothes. Pretty soon SP and your goals become the obsession rather than food or things that make you feel bad.
Hi Jessica You can do it, if I can do it, any one can do it. And also make a lot of friends in the proccess. Just remember Never Give Up Rosalyn in Corvallis
Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance. It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn
