    Welcome back to all the "Jims" LOL We went through a phase on the WW board where everyone seemed to be named Dave or David. Guess the new trend is gonna be James or Jim :)

    Hi, I'm Doug and I would like to be a guy on a diet. I just started today and have a LOT of weight to lose. I don't have any friends on here yet and would like some, so please feel free to add me. I keep my diary open. Thanks!

    Welcome, Doug! There are a lot of good folks on here and a lot of good help. Just know that the group will tell it like it is. I am 50# down and I still have way more to lose so I am right there with you.

    Welcome Doug! Join the discussions and share your journey. One piece of advice: Think long term. Gradual changes will set you up for success. This isn't the biggest loser. Good luck!

    Finally a board for men, by men. Little bit about myself. I'm not going to write a book here, but I made it through a lot in the past 5 years. I'm in a good place, so it's time to focus on me. Let myself get up to the 300 mark, and enough is enough. I'm committed and motivated to get back to a healthy, active weight. Support is always good and welcomed.

    I've had off and on success with weight loss, losing some, gaining some. I had to have a double bypass back in July and never want to go through that ordeal again so I'm back to lose it all this time.

    @tazboy @Richie2shoes Welcome to both of you! Feel free to check out the posts on the board and get in where you fit in.

    Welcome newbies! One quick disclaimer - there are women Goadies. Their take on weight management is just as helpful and they promise not to talk sport bras or other such things. Shhhhh, don't let the cat out of the bag. ;)

    Welcome guys. Please, don't be bashful. Jump in to one of the threads or feel free to start one on your own. Good luck to you both (but it's not really about luck; it's about how you work your program).
