Hi, Obviously I am new here, this is the first forum thingy that I have joined to do with losing weight. I am not a person to put myself out there at all. I prefer to hide in the shadows and observe everyone else. I think that after being overweight for the last 15 years it is time to start to turn things around. I am 38 years old and live on the beautiful GC. I have 2 great kids that are always encouraging me to lose the weight. I have a fair amount to lose so its going to take time. Problem is I love food. Which is the problem as it is my drug of choice. So here I go and fingers crossed this time it works.
