Finally Saying Hello...

Hello!
I joined MFP in March but did not get into my lifestyle change with full force until May. I have lost 16 lbs. but have a long road ahead yet. I have high blood pressure and hypothyroidism, both controlled with medication. My family has a long history of heart disease and diabetes. I want to be the exception. I need to get my weight under control and be as healthy as I can be for myself and my son. This site is so helpful and easy to use. I have learned a lot from reading various posts and comments. I am looking forward to continue on this new path in my life and meet new friends.

Good luck to everyone!

    Welcome to the best site on the web!
    I've got a thyroid problem too, and thought THAT was the reason I couldn't lose, but kept gaining each year. A friend told me about this site several months ago, and I've been losing ever since!!!
    I'm sure you will too!
