Kocia - welcome! So glad you joined in. Good goals! It all pretty much comes down to calories and exercise. It's amazing how quickly 5 lbs can go on -- and then how hard it is to come off.
Edited to add:
Mike, there have been several studies that have found that people who take vitamins have an increased risk of dying. However, a lot of the effect might be because people who are feeling poorly (and already ill) may be more likely to take vitamins than healthy people.
