Hi, I'm a new member and I'm hoping I can achieve my weight loss goal. I really think by joining a group where so many others are working towards a similar goal I'll be able to accomplish this. I'm actually excited about starting my diet. I love the nutriton planner and the way it keeps track of your calories, carbs, fats etc............I'm amazed at how everything little thing you stick in your mouth rack up the calories. I'm a gum chewer and I love dubble bubble. I looked it up and realized I'm going to half to start chewiing sugar free gum "bummer". It's made me more cautious how just 1 mint or 1 piece of gum can make a huge difference when calorie counting. Good Luck to all of you. Have a wonderful day!

Hello, I have been a member for a while, but have not participated in the message boards or e-mails. I have been too busy working , and working out. In the last 4 months I have lost 52 lbs. I have 32 to go. I enjoy the site and thought I would try to do better with communicating with my group.

I am Kathy Willis also know as Lumby chick. Hay I lost 2 pounds this week I am walking with a walker and doing it daily, and to-day I did our big shopping the main one for the month with my husband. Usually I sit or end up sitting in the car but I made it all the way threw this time, He was very surprized as I usually can not do it. Thank you for all your encouragements. Kathy willis

I joined yesterday and don't know what I did, but I erased or deleted my original info, so I joined again. I watched GMA yesterday and a couple were talking about keeping a food diary and I've done that in the past, quit, and now am ready to keep track of what I'm doing again. I love reading the posts because it helps to encourage me. I really want to succeed at losing this weight. I have felt at times like such a failure. I feel like I have willpower at times and then at times I feel like I really blow it. I will be 50 years old this year and think I'm going through perimenopause. I'm at a place in my life right now that I'm ready to make a lifestyle change. I just hope I can do it and not fail like I have done so many times in the past.
