I feel like I'm in a race to get more viewers. I'm not in this to be ahead, behind, or well liked (would be nice.) I just want to lose weight to live longer etc. I am a struggler, a survivor, and a determined person to continue in my quest no matter how many times I have set backs or how often time lapse between motivation and successes. I am looking for an edge, in finding like minded people, to relate to and share with. In a study of 309 dieters for two years, those who had a support group lost 30% more weight than those who dieted alone. No Man Is An Island!
