New Life Style Starts Today!
Hello! Nice to meet you, my name is Donna I have been overweight most of life. Two years ago my health started to go down hill, 10 surgeries and down 70lbs later they found out I have to autoimmune conditions, now that I am stabilized started to gain the weight back and have become so sad as I watch the scale climb. So have decided it felt great seeing the scale drop and I want that again. Have decided to only way to do that is to do a lifestyle change, stumbled across this site and became so excited. Hopefully, I will be able to give and get support from my new friends. :):)

Welcome, Donna, and congrats on taking a step to take care of you. I love to hear those words "lifestyle change," because in the end, that's what does it, not a "diet" you go on or go off. Best of luck in your journey. There is a lot of support here; check in on the threads and jump right in. Everyone is very supportive and friendly, so don't hesitate to ask for what you need :).

Welcome! Come on in and make yourself comfortable. :D

Lifestyle changes are the best. Diets are great, but if one fails to make permanent changes, it's pretty easy to backslide (ask me how I know ;)).

Please don't hesitate to speak up if there is anything we can do to help or if you have any questions.

Welcome and congratulations on the lifestyle change decision! I agree with Cassie and Michael that most of us need a permanent change to be the healthy person we want to be.
