Smile Ready to get serious again!

So, like many who struggle with weight loss I am here at a point I never wanted to be again.

I weighed myself this morning...294. Not my highest weight ever but certainly not where I want to be either.

I am ready to take on the challenge again. This site looks like it has some valuable information and a lot of encouragement. I've taken the advice and found out how many calories I need to sustain this weight and downloaded an app on my phone to track calories. It's a start.

Love the site, excited about this new start, thanks to all of you for being here!

Welcome from a newbie! Your comment struck a chord with me. How many times do I have to lose this same weight? I know I've lost at least one fully grown man in my lifetime - and not through death or divorce! The important thing is you're willing to give it another go. I will be glad to encourage you anytime you need it.

Welcome. And know that you're not alone. I'm in the midst of losing weight I've gained while I've been actively dieting. So let's determine that this will be our last time to lose it!
