    Hello everyone my name is Michelle and I am very new to this website. I need advice on how to change. I am really overweight and feel I am obese. Since I was a little girl I have had a mother who has always told me how to eat and never never let me live. I am now 29 and I am still being told how to eat. I do feel like I do really need to change my ways or it may be to late. I am actually at a...
  • Hello Again,After dealing with the serious frustration as placed in my last post (in addition to downing a couple of beers for my sorrow), I suspect that its time to set some goals...to shit or get off the pot so to speak. In essence the plan is going to be similar to the one I used several years ago in my early 20s to drop 60lbs in several months in which i managed to keep it off for another 6...

    Hi to all. New on this site. Feeling hopeless in my journey of weight loss. Sure plenty will be able to relate, but I just feel like I am going the wrong way, no, I know that I am going the wrong way!

Anyway, I'm about to start this 6 week journey to lose more weight before school starts and keep it going from there. Does anyone have any words of advice? I could really use it...
