Hello everyone....I just happened on this site totally by chance, at a time in my life when I've been struggling to get 'all the way there' to my wt. loss goal. I'm about 20 pounds from a 95 pound loss and there is just something that keeps resurfacing that I allow to keep me from attaining my goal and retaining that progress. I've lost large amounts before but haven't been able to hold on to my progress. I had so wanted this time to be different. I have extensive WW's participation in my history...even used to be a leader many years ago, and I know that I can't make progress unless three things are in place...the food plan that balances eating for health with eating for pleasure so I don't end up feeling deprived and having my efforts backfire, and the exercise plan, and of course there is the understanding the headtrip aspect. And of course I know that ongoing support is key. I am so impressed and inspired by this site and by the messages all of you post about how you're doing and how you're coping with challenges. I was feeling kind of discouraged this morning, but you guys give me hope. Hope you all have a good holiday weekend. Maajida

You can do the 20 with a snap of a finger with the help of these ladies and a few men,,
I'm .06 to goal and for a few weeks I've been posting and posting and bellyaching about my .02's week after week.. the encouragement here is fantastic and I will get the next .06 off... it might take a few more weeks but I'll do it... I have this great group. and this terrific site thanks to Aimee, who started it all.
