    Hello everyone, My name is Rebecca and I'm new to this. I'm 16 and I'm over 175 lbs. At the start of summer going towards the end of the school year, I was about 192 lbs so I guess you can say I've made some progress. 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...

    I'm new here. I'm morbidly obese, and can't sleep tonight. So, I've been reading up on symptoms of diabetes. It runs in my family, and I'd like to see it coming before it gets here. I have also looked up support groups, and found my way here.

  • Feeling discouraged with my weight loss. 28 days after surgery and I have only lost 12 lbs. My BMI prior to surgery was 38 so I need to loss a total of about 50 lbs per my Dr. You may wonder why I had the surgery, I had a hiatal hernia invading my chest and a prior surgery 15 yrs ago to fix that hiatal hernia failed.
