I have battle being over weight all my life. I have always been able to diet and loose the weight. I had 2 major weight lost periods in my live. The 1st time I lost 100 pounds and 2nd time I lost 150 pounds. Both times I could not keep off the weight. May be the 3rd time is the charm. I realize now that it is life style change and not a diet that you stay on year. So I would like to use this forum for suport and my I can help the group as well.
