I am also a newbie, this time around. Actually, I've subscribed to FD, but have used many others in the last year with no success. So I am back here, and going to get it right this time.
I too, am a Lifetimer with WW, but have wasted a lot of money just trying to get it right. I got my lifetime certification back in 1978 by only losing 13 pounds. Now I have 5 or 6 times that amount and it isn't easy. I know what I need to do, it's just doing it.
So hopefully I can gain some friends online here, be encouraged and help to encourage someone too.
