Welcome - I'm new too. Like many of us - I've struggled w/ my weight most my adult life now...I can usually lose the weight but can't keep it off long-term - it feels like deprivation...
I've found online tools, journal, and forums to be helpful in the past.
Good luck to you.

Weight struggle up and down all my life. SUGAR is my trigger.
