Hi GARDINIA . . .
from a fellow Canadian . . . I was born and raised in Toronto (one of the few not from somewhere else
) although I now live on the east coast.
There is a special area in the community called "Dieting with Obstacles" you might want to take a look at. Sometimes it helps to chat with people who've been dealing with the same types of problems.
Of course, you will be welcomed with a big
wherever you decide to pop in. You've already taken that first and very important step on the great journey to better health and fitness by coming to 3FC . . . hope you will love it, here.
