Hi everyone!

I finally decided to take the plunge and finally post about trying to lose weight. I've been various levels of chubby/overweight/fat my whole life. I recently moved across the country for a job and decided that I should use this as a new start on tackling my weight too since it's getting too close to 200 for comfort. And hopefully I'll actually stick with it this time. I've said I was going to lose weight and go on a diet so many times, but it's never actually worked.

And there's the basics of me. I'm hoping that by saying this in a public forum I'll hold myself accountable a lot more than I have in the past.
