Hey chicks, I am new to this site. Am hoping to get lots of encouragement as well as be a cheerleader to you! :carrot:
I am smack dab in the middle of 40 something, and don't like what I see. I am way overweight (according to those wonderful weight tables...don't ya just LOVE them?):mad: and have gained high B/P as well, and aside from the obvious complications of that, I want to look good for my hubby again. :hug:
Anyway, I have two adorable g'cren now, and my oldest child got married last fall, so we are hoping for a crop from them in the future, and I PLAN TO BE A PART OF THAT FUTURE!:D In order to do that, I must lose this weight. Here's where you come in...I support you, you support me, it's a win win thing all the way around!:hug: Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi there!

I just turned 44 and have the same goals to improve my health and like the way I look. I'm a size 16 right now with a goal of being able to wear a size 10--I think 160 will be the number I need to reach.

Tomorrow I'll start following phase 1 of the South Beach Diet and listening to the You on a Diet audiobook I purchased. It's been 13 years since I pushed past the 200 pound mark on the scale and time for me to get serious if I want to to meet my great-grandchildren (I have 4 grandchildren right now!)

Let's have a great week! :carrot:
