lost 3 lbs already but that's normal from what I read, hard cutting out what you are used to chowing down on a regular basis but I'm determined, its that or I venture into the world diabetes, no thanks.

Keeping yourself accountable is one of the biggest hurdles most people have and recording your food and posting your successes and failures is a great way to do that.

I recommend joining a group or two with people with similar interests that can help you overcome any pitfalls and talk you through lower motivational periods.

Keep up the great work and remember that you're not alone!
Ever shrinking!

I agree with the other Sheryll. I'd also suggest you find a few buddies to cheer you on and hold you accountable.

Choosing a specific diet, for some, is also a great help. It takes all of the guesswork out of the research. Someone else has already done that part of the work for you.

Welcome aboard!
** Goal 1- 20 pounds
** Goal 2- get back down to wearing size 16 jeans
** Goal 3- normal blood pressure
** Goal 4- well below "One" Derland



Blessings,
Sherill
