Weight Loss Support - Newbie looking for a few good supporters

I just joined tonight. Was feeling blue due to a weight gain an went looking for a sight just like this. I know what to eat and when to eat it, I just need the support for when I have a bad day or the kids are driving me crazy or the dogs wont settle down etc...
Anyone willing to share in the battel would love the company.
I am a mom of 2 great kids when they want to be:) One great hubby:hug: I was diagnosed with MS in 2000, which has slowed me down, but not stopped me. I stay home for the most part and love to scrapbook.
I will be joing a gym on Mon. after my doc. says it's okay. (just had knee surgery).
I have tried a lot of diff. diets and ideas, and the one thing that was missing was the support. So if your willing to listen to me I can be there for you.

Hey, your tracker numbers look kinda familiar?

What are you planning to eat JH? Do you have any idea if MS messes with your metabolism or not?

Thanks for the welcom.
Freddy,Susan and all.
I plan on following my own diet. I have tried the GI plan and a Heart Healthy plan and going to try to put some type of program that will work for me and also my family. :grouphug:

As far as my MS I think I have it under control. My moto is I have MS it does not have me. Yes I do nap more, but I also have a better dispostion.

thanks for the support:wave:
