I'm new here too. I'd love to find a buddy. I am starting at 179, 5 feet 4 inches. I lost weight 3 years ago....down to 138....but sadly gained it all back and then some. I have a teenage daughter and twins (boy/girl) who are in Kindergarten. I really need to find a way to get motivated and find the willpower that I know is within me. Maybe we can encourage eachother.
Best of luck to you!
