Welcome, Joanie. My condolences on your loss.

You've taken the first step - you've decided to lose weight - actually, I like the way you put it first - 'time to take control'. Weight goes on so easily - and is so hard to take off...sigh. So I find it best to concentrate on my goals to losing weight, rather than the weight loss itself.

My goals are simple: 1200-1500 calories a day; no sugar & white flour; an hour of extra movement a day. Every day I meet those goals, I consider a success.

What are your goals?
Age 61, Height 5'9"
March 2010 145 lbs, Jan 2013 173 lbs
1st Goal 145 lbs 5/25
New goal 140
