My first time too, odea22 . . . welcome and good luck! After losing about 30 lbs last year and planning to do same this year I've decided to do a few specific things: stop buying / stocking bars of dark chocolate (or similar "good" foods), ditto for any alcoholic beverages (only drink while out), ramping up my exercising (got an elliptical and fitness program in holidays), and eating "healthy" foods more than ever while still "cheating" with some yummy foods like chips, cookies, WW bars, etc. I tell myself I can lose 1 lbs per week, so by the end of 2014 I'll be down 50 lbs . . . you can do that, can't you?? Try www.about.com and their weight and fitness articles and programs - free and easy to use!
