Congratulations for taking that step! Being the beginning of the year there will be LOTS of newbies there! Stick it out for a month and unfortunately you'll notice most of them start to drop off
But then it gets far less busy!
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008
Starting weight 377, Weight in spring of 2010 198, Weight in August 2011? In the 240's.
Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!
