Welcome to FitDay!
I congratulate you for taking control of your situation.
People ask me all the time how I'm losing weight--I tell them I found a radical new weight loss solution:
No personal trainer, no pills, no expensive "diets". Just a free FitDay account and a decision to lose the weight and get healthy.
So, I approve of your plan. 100 pounds gone in 26 weeks fairly w/minimal effort isn't too bad, I think.
Let us know how you're doing and don't hesitate to speak up if you have questions.
