The site is great and absolutely works as long as you are committed to making it work. It is a support but the key is you.The nutrition tracker and the fitness trackers are great. You can use their recipes and meal plans or you can develop your own depending on your likes and your recipes. The latter is my choice but my greatest issue was portion size, over the years I had already made many sensible changes in what I fixed and fruits and veggies have always been a major part of my diet. The fast break is a teaching step and really important in getting started. The friends you make will be instrumental in keeping your determination to succeed.

Hey all, I am a newbie here, joined and have been fixing the healthier meals for my family for 10 days now. Not able to exercise yet but next week I am released from my doctor to go forth! Feeling a bit disappointed that I actually gained 2 pounds this week. Maybe its water retention or PMS? I am not going to let it discourage me. I am at or below the calorie range and I am not hungry at all. Guess I am a slow starter!
