Welcome Pam!

I'm glad you decided to join us. Many of us here have had the same experience as you. I was overweight for about 20 years I went on and off way too many diets to count. This time has been so different for me because I finally got it in my head that this is for the rest of my life.

My advice to you is to set small goals. Don't look at the total amount you want to lose - break it down into 5 or 10 pound goals. When you reach those goals reward yourself (with anything but food). Each time you reach a goal you will feel better and better about yourself. Before you know it you will be shopping for new clothes and have more compliments coming your way than you will know what to do with

Always believe in yourself! You are worth it and you can do it!
