I have to say I have tried other sites and some diets, I just didn't seem to have the will to keep it up. This is the first time I have used one of these "introduce" forum posts. I have some support at work, and I am sure that I can get support at home. I will try to keep up with my journal, and food and exercise entries. I know there are no over night cures for obesity so I hope to be in this, this time, for the long haul.

Well with all that said, Hello Everyone, I look forward to reporting my progress (and set backs) and hearing how other are doing. It is great to not be alone.

Hello Phil
I'm new her too, only a week old, but have found it to be extremely supportive, friendly, and informative! The diet and exercise journal is great for keeping track of food and exercise, and it also helps to find what a good caloric intake would be for your weight, height, and weightloss goals. We look forward to hearing about your journey!

Thanks a bunch, I know that most people (me included) do well with others looking over a shoulder and I know that others get to see what I eat (when i put it in the diary) and that will keep me from doing too much over eating. It feels like a lie when i don't put it in the diary and I don't like to lie.

Thanks for the comments.

@DReno, Thanks for the welcome I am glad to be here. Looks like you are on your way to your goal keep it up.

@mahara, good to know there are other newbies out there just like me and I look forward to hearing about your progress as well.

Lets all work together and get healthy.
