What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Hmmm.. 10 pounds I suppose. Being tall I've always been heavier than my friends, but not quite in the overweight category. I always new I'd be happier lighter, but since I was just on the high end of normal I never had the motivating factor. Now I do.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm quite nervous about posting. I've quietly read posts here for AGES but never mustered up the courage to join myself.
