    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hello Everyone,

    I am new here but not new to trykng to lose weight. I try this every year around this time being that I am a teacher and I am off. My wife has been in me about losing weight and my blood pressure for a few years now and I just didn't think it was a big deal. Now that I am a father, I want to do the right thing for my wife and son. I used to be in great shape! I am 5'+" and was 180 but I ran everyday and ate fairly healthy. Now I stopped running and blew up to 238!!!! I just got so busy on my job that I stopped!! When i do try, I try for like a month and dont see a change so i get discouragrd. This time I am in it for the long haul! I just hope I keep this same attitude a month from now. Or when I get hungry .

    Congrats on giving it a shot again! I think starting and making the decision that you want to lose weight is a huge hurdle to get over. Now just stay determined and focused and you'll be able to stick with it! Good luck!
