That's a great question! I've tried every diet plan on earth. WW, Jenny, Medifast... none of them seem to do the trick!

I know that exercise is key, and I always feel better once I get to the gym. But, does anyone else HATE going? So many mirrors, nowhere to hide!

I think I'm going to try the calorie counting method, and exercise!

Calorie counting is the way to go for many of us. Welcome welcome!

Welcome to the 100+ board, Linda! It's always cool to have another comrade in arms in this fight for a healthier us. Everyone here is wonderfully supportive and there is a huge amount (pun intended) of weight loss wisdom floating through the threads.

So, congratulations to you for taking that first big step, choosing your health over bad habits and food. I can't wait to post on your "I just lost my first 5 pounds" thread!
