Well hi then! And a very hearty welcome to you. This place really is quite home-y. I think you're going to really like it here. It's a great place for support, advice and encouragment.

Looks like you're off to a great start, having lost 20 lbs already. Best of luck as you continue on your journey. I look forward to getting to know you much better.

This is a great place, I look forward to seeing you around!

Congratulations on your 20 lbs lost already, that's awesome!

Great to have you here! Hopefully, we'll be your family for a long while - I know that I don't think that I could manage to just quit reading and posting after getting to goal and hope to maintain on my own. Plus - we'll really want your insight after you get to goal! Looking forward to hearing more from you...

Welcome "newbie"!

Yay, another tall girl! No has latched on to my theories about the disporportionate number of gals over 5'10" here compared to the general population, but there's something there... Anyway, welcome and can't wait to get to know you better!
