Hi Deb and everyone else. I recently joined 3FC and have been reading a lot of message boards, threads. While I love them all, this is the one to which I always check first. It is so, so nice to be new to a site and to read (in the most recent message by Deb) that you welcome newcomers. This is kindness at its finest hour. You have no idea how much it means to this "newbie" to see that. I do love to read and write, but am a little shy about the bio. stuff. I'm going to be bold and brave and go for it! I am learning to take risks in my life and here goes-

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS:
I eat too much. I love healthy food and really don't eat junk, but I have no concept of portion control. I guess I have very healthy fat, L0L, right??
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I love myself whatever I weigh rather than feeling that I can love myself only if I lose weight. Does anyone know what I mean?
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
My husband is totally disabled and sleeps a lot, especially during the evenings. I am a "night owl" and, consequentlky, am alone a lot. I spend time on the internet and like internet pen pals.
