Hi Shawn. I hear ya', brother! If you look back on some of my musings over the last 16 months I've been on the forums you'll find lots of this stuff addressed. The good ol' 100 Plus Pounds to Lose thread in Diet Tips will keep you busy for a while (when you're not out exercising, wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
Eat less, move more, drink many bladders full of water (and then some) and enter every blessed thing that goes into your celery hole into FitDay is what has worked for me.
You are always welcome to PM me as well. It's nice to talk with someone who has the same issues sometimes.
PS The sigs are not automatic, you need to create/update them manually.
