I've been reading some of your news items. Looks like you and I agree on a lot of the same issues.

I also like to cook and I will be trying some of your recipes.

Your site is starting to feel more comfortable, but my computer skills are not "tops". Any hints would be welcome. Did I put my journal in the right place or should I move it somewhere else? Would like to keep a day by day accounting--at least for awhile.

Already feeling less compulsive about my eating and have more energy.

Yeah, our site's a little different than many others, so it can take some time to get used to.

You can keep your daily journal in the 'blog' section; I suggest you write a summary description (how you're feeling, thoughts, concerns) first then describe your daily meals, exercise, progress reports last. This helps people understand what you're doing and why, then they can read about your specific details.

Adding menus/exercise to the daily journal may seem a bit odd, but it's helped Teri pinpoint changes that slowed or stopped her progress after-the-fact. After a while you may decide to drop the daily menus, it's your choice!

Sorry for the delay in welcoming you but I have been busy trying to catch up with everything I have to do since we returned from our week away.

I am very happy to have you here and I look forward to getting to know you as well as having the opportunity to share your journey with you.

Glad you are feeling good after your first day on plan!
