A new me!!

Where has the time gone...seems like yesterday I just started here. I've had my ups and downs and mostly stayed about the same weightwise. I really need a new plan so going to try again for the upteenth time. I just don't want to waste my time on the computer that much to invest in the time here. I need to move more and utilize my time better to things that are important. I also need to downsize my "junk"...I'm slowly getting there and hopefully will be healthy along the way.
