What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have more incentive. I am getting married in September, and have put on 30 pounds since my fiance and I got together in 2006.

I do not EVER want to get up to that weight again, so I am REALLY motivated to nip this in the bud. I had a friend who I walked with every night back then, and I really miss having that support. I am hoping that this online forum will help me to stay accountable.
