Hello everyone, Today is my first post although I have been recording my meals for the last 2 weeks (I have lost 5 pounds) I am a mother of four grown daughters - 26,24,23,and 20. I have dieted most of my adult life. I give a new meaning to yo-yo dieting. I decided no more dieting for me...what I need is a life change. Recently I was at the doctors and he read me the riot act, my family history is loaded with disease, obesity related. My Mom died almost a year ago, 450 lbs, miserable and unhappy (we needed an oversized coffin and sad to say I was embarrased). I don't want that for myself, not to mention I know how I have suffered losing my mother when she was only 67. I do not want that for my girls. So here I am, making a change, setting a better example for my children than my Mom set for me.
