100 lb. Club - I would like to introduce myself.

Hello everyone, I am new here and a good friend of mine told me of this site, so I would like to say thanks SHASTA, and introduce myself.
I have a total of 215 to lose, so far I have lost 32 of that, I am eating 6 small meals a day, aiming for 2200 calories, I choose that amount, because that is how much I think I should eat for my goal weight. I like so many I have heard am tired of the yoyo eating, and want to do this healthy, even if it means slowing down and not losing on crash diets. It could take 2-3 years go get to my goal, but will have practiced all this time, eating for that goal weight... I have actually been to goal a few times, only to turn right around and gain it right back... so My new goals are with a heavy emphisis on what it means to eat for goal weight, and that is how I decide what to do or not to do, my bottom line is can I do this for life? Well that is enough about me, :) I am looking forward to getting toknow all of you!!
PS HUGS Shasta are you there?
