Hi and welcome! I joined the site about 6 weeks ago, and I have to say it has been terrific sharing the journey. We have much in common - same age, started at the same weight, and are right now, the same weight again!
I tried Atkins in the past, but I just didn't have the strength to stick with it. I lost 83 lbs. in 2005, and slowly gained it all back following a break-up...but here I am again, recommitted and this time forever. Portion control, and it's working. Welcome, and good luck!!
Lose weight - have a better quality of life!
