    Trying again to lose weight
    NormaC posted:
    I've been on a number off diets the last two years, but so far have not lost weight. I lose motivation, so i'm hoping by linking up with someone who has a lot of weight to lose I will remain focused on my goal. I weight 359 and count most of that weight gain on the use of medications that put on weight and affecting my metabolism. I'm currently going off one of these medications so I'm hoping to see results this time.

    Hi NormaC!

    Medications can be real weight loss deterrents! I hope that your recent change is going well for you.

    I definitely have a lot of weight to lose and would love to help keep you motivated!
