Thumbs up I needed this

This is about the kagillionth time I have joined a weight loss community only to get discouraged ~ but a visit to my doctor tells me I need this more than ever.
I'm Lin ~ 56 years old. Wife, mother, nana,teacher.
I need to lose 26 lbs and lower my cholesteral ~ yikes!!!!!!
I live in snowy Ontario Canada and can't wait for spring but I think it will be Augusr before the ice in my back yard melts.
I've been lurking here for a couple of days and it seems like an allright community ~ I could really use the support and a buddy~ any takers, Have a good weekend all. Cheers Lin

Hi and welcome!

And stop lurking! Just post wherever you feel lead. You'll find that you settle into a couple of threads very nicely.
Are you looking for folks who eat like you or exercise like you or who are your age? We'll find you something.
But remember that if there's anything you need, all you have to do is ask.
