I'll be 40 in January and am looking to lose 50-60 pounds. I'm tired of being fat and tired! Many of my friends do not have weight issues, so they don't understand how I struggle each day--just like a drug addict.

My husband can lose weight without trying, so he doesn't get it, either. He tries to understand (kind of), but he doesn't have a clue!! ;)

I'm looking forward to reading about everyone's tips, successes, and struggles. It will help me realize that I am not alone in this Battle of the Bulge!! :carrot: Trust me, you'll hear about mine!

The hardest part right now is seeing any progress at all! I've been working on this for a week now and when the scale doesn't budge, I get really frustrated. Then I eat some ice cream or something to make me feel better. Then I feel worse and I eat again. It's a vicious cycle.

However, seeing that other folks are winning the Battle one day at a time, I promise I will not grab a spoon or fork when I feel down. That is my goal for the next week!
