First, welcome to FitDay and the forums!
Second, if you have a post window open too long, the forum software will time out and often "eat" your post. Unless it's a quickie, I ALWAYS do a "copy" before hitting "submit replay", just in case.
Third, I've been a yo-yo all my life--from a low of 175 to a high of well over 400. With the help of FitDay and logging all my food and exercise I intend for this to be my last weight loss journey.
Take some time and read the sub forums--lots of great advice and folks more than willing to help.
We have a couple 100+ to lose threads going and some "challenges" that you might like to join.
If you need help or advice, simply ask.
