Welcome Niki. I am a new member of this team myself. I have tried, succeeded, lost and then regained so many times, so many diets...now I'm on the slow boat to true success. Welcome.

Hi Niki and greetings from Canada. Sometimes I think that the name of the team should be, "Those who almost get to their goals but then end up going backwards again for a time". That is me. But in the end, it still makes me a slow loser. I love this group because it puts no pressure on us to get to a certain point by a certain time. Looking forward to hearing more from you in the future.

Welcome to the team, Niki, and best of luck in your journey to better health! I so agree with your comment about reaching "binge" mode when trying to go at a fast pace (been there, done that!). This is a great group and am looking forward to hearing about your progress.

Hi Niki...welcome!

**LINDA**

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

Welcome Niki, sounds like this is the team for you. Great that you understand your body and its needs.

Hi! I'm Niki. I'm new here. I love the humor implied by the name of the team! It's also so much true. Yes, I'm a slow loser, the slowest, and that's the only way I can do it. Whenever I try to speed things up, I end up having a binge. So it's got to be slow. Add to that my thyroid problems and here comes the slowest loser!
