She was right! I've done Atkins, Nutrisystem, and Weight Watchers....but the weight keeps coming back! Boooo!! So I thought I would give this a try. It seems to be painfree so far.

Sun, 14 Feb 2010 02:32:59 EST MightyMar New year and new way through internet support to challenge my forever goal of being at a healthy weight! I recently lost over 25 lbs with doc, pills, and Atkins type program of eating. Drugs are not the way since side effects are a problem and the whip-lash weight gain that happened with me wonders why I did that to myself! I know healthy eating all types of food and moving more are the long term answer. I'm hoping this sight may give me the personnel support I'll need to reach my goals.
