Hi everyone, I'm Cheryl (aka Surfnmom) and I have been reading this forum with great interest.
I think what made up my mind to try this was all the positive support that you all give each other daily.
A little about me I am a young 54 and have been on diets since i was a kid. Been to goal a few hundred times (feels that way). Last time I was at goal and had been there for 3 years was 2008. A size 6 132lbs. Felt Great never thought I would gain the weight back
Then along came Menopause. Horrible is all I can say. AnyHoo Feeling more like a human and gained back almost all i had lost.
Its been an up and down slow go for awhile. I have succeeded in getting "AS" out of my life and trying to eating only real food getting rid of the process foods. Started walking with my son 3 to 4 times a week. I do feel great, but man this is really not getting me anywhere fast. I would love to see at least a lb a week loss instead of a lb every 2 or three weeks.
So if this can show me something weekly then I would be a happy camper lol.
So here i am and look forward to joining your group and daily thread.
OHHH and a Big Congrats to all of you that are doing so well with this.
