What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: this time, I don't have a time deadline. I'd rather lose weight slowly and keep it off. I have learned a lot about what works and what doesn't and I'm sure I'll learn lots more.

Anything else you'd like to share with us: I really like the people here!
