"Where to start...a little about me I guess...I am 32 years old. I am 6' tall and nearing the 300lb mark which scares me to death. Everyone always ensured me my weight was because "I was so tall." The last time I remember being "thin" was at about age 12. Once I started high school it all "blew up" from there. Over the last 16 years I have put on a few pounds, 136 to be exact. I have done all the fad diets and had results but I wasn't able to live on the "diet" plan. My husband and I have been unable to conceive on our own, or after three IVF cycles due partially to PCOS.

This isn't my first rodeo on FS and I hope it will be my last. This seems to be the only place I am successful. The members are sincere, many in the same boat. I've learned from my mistakes and have set smaller goals for myself. It is time for a change and I have to stick with it. There is no room for excuses, no time for them either. I have to do this now, no time is better than the present."

I sit here reading those words, kicking myself as they have been there for almost two years. Whatever successes I previously had are now long gone and I am right back where I started. I am hoping I have it in me to do it and stick to it this time. I gave up smoking and it has been 5 months since my last cigarette (which I never thought I could do) so maybe it is a sign of changes, I hope.

adding your own meals
When you go to add food to your log there are some words in blue next to the open field that says "new item"; click on the words and a screen will open that allows you to add an item and to input the nutritional information. (Make sure to "share" it with FS so we can all enjoy the fruits of your labor!) Good Luck!

Wii Active users!
I just started using the wii fit that I stole from my mother last week. So far I love it...I actually sweat lol and it is easy to do while dinner is cooking or the washer is running. I do find the hoola hoop one hurts my knees the next day, too much hip circling apparently!

Net Calories
Yes you want a "negative" in the net column. If you didn't you wouldn't lose any weight. For weight loss you want to burn more calories than you eat.
