Morning All! I am BRAND NEW here on FD. Found it via google - really liking what I see so far. I, like most of you, have tried everything possible with the exception of hermetically sealing my mouth shut, to lose weight. I have blossomed into a number that I thought was only real when it came to bad cholesterol. I am embarking on a health journey with a friend and a health and wellness coach. (Notice I didn't use the "d" word). We are going to be blogging our journey together. I'm thinking if I make it real and put out all the vulnerability for others to read, MAYBE that will make me more accountable and honest. I've read a few posts so far - LADIES OVER 40 TAKE HEAD... I TOO AM ONE OF YOU.... can you say "hotflash"?! Looking forward to reading your posts, showing support and taking on this new journey. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!
