Welcome!! When I joined SP last year I learned that if I think of it as a healthy life style and not a diet it is soooo much easier to succeed. I went from Omnivore in Aug 2011 to Vegetarian by Dec 31st and Vegan by June 12. In the process I lost over 30 pounds and feel much better about myself.

Hi all. I'm new to this. I saw an article on Yahoo and I saw the words "lose weight" and "free", so i thought i would try it. I have been on the yo-yo diets. Now, i don't do many, only a handful but my latest one, was organic liasion. I can say I probably lost 10lbs but it did get kind of expenisive and i couldn't continue, so I found myself gaining those 10lbs and then some. Also the program was a bit complicated, the support was totally different than what i see it is here. So hopefully I can follow through this time, it's for my own health and being there for my little girl. Fingers crossed!! :)
