Hi happy, glad to have you on FitDay. You have great motivations to be healthy. Look around the threads and jump in wherever you like. Also check out the "Best of FitDay" series for a lot of excellent advice. If you have any other questions, just holler; folks are happy to help.
There is a diet buddy thread in the Newcomer's section, I believe, that could help you hook up with a buddy or a few.
Have a great day!
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
