Hiya all!

Have been reading the sticky progress pics and just amazing how you all are doing to shed the unwanted pounds. Bravo to all the successful folks!! :)

Let me tell a brief bio on my situation. I'm struggling in weight loss all my life and had tried special plans and pills that I was never win of the battle. I crave sweets alot and do know that sugar is my demon. I live with my family and don't work, and am the only one who have a weight problem, that makes it a tough challenge to focus on...when other family members snack on junk foods. I don''t cook or do major grocery shopping..Do have healthy foods, but when seeing junk foods in my eyes, my mind starts losing control.

I will be 40 in January, am single, not married, no kids. Am not following any special plans..I doing my best on avoiding sugar..learning to eat a balance meals and 2 snacks...plus geting my body moving. I have time on my hands ,since am not working.. am a caregiver to one of my sisters who is in a wheelchair.

I am gearing up on doing some home exercises into my journey.

Looking forward on seeing some more successful friends that is winning the battle of the bulge.

I fully understand the sweet craving. It's a tough one--not having that stuff in the house helps, but since that's not possible, asking your family to help you out by putting that stuff out of sight might be a good idea. Will that work? Hopefully, they all want you to be healthy so they'll support you in your efforts.
