I kinda like Marge.. Can we KEEP her???

Hi Marge, Welcome to the Looney Bin.
I'm kim, I'll be your guide
please drop tips in the box at the exit....

First off it's usually suggested that newbies fill out a Food and Fitness planner either here on WebMd,, Livestrong,com , or wherever you prefer. They are free tools that really are quite invaluable when it comes to keeping track of your caloric intake and exercise output.
They also figure how many calories to shoot for and exercise to do on a daily basis. Pretty cool all in all.

That said. It would be nice to know how you plan on going about your journey. This is a community that doesn't necessarily believe in "diets" , it's believed to be a journey that will be "forever" whereas diets are "short term".

It'd be helpful to know a little about you, your food likes and dislikes.... if you have any physical limitations... anything ,really that you would like to share with us to get better feedback and to feel even more like a member of this very tightly knit community.
Nothing is better than expanding our site with new people though. It brings in a breath of fresh air and helps keep us on our toes, lol
