Hello everyone,

Just joined the group and started an exercise and diet program AGAIN. Hopefully I can stick with it this time. I'm tired of seeing all the pretty clothes I cannot wear anymore.

Hi One KC

welcome aboard
most of us don;t really diet because they are temporary
the thing to do is change your eating and exercise habits forever make it a life style change it is easier to maintain when you approach it this way ...
try to eat healthier nutrition loaded foods that are also lower in calories ;; they should include fruits vegies whole grains lean meats fat free dairy nuts in moderation. this way you make your own plan to suit your needs and choices . try to stay on a healthy eating program at least a month before you slip then if you slip start over the thing is you never quit . we all slip sometimes just don;t let one taste derail you keep your health choices 85% of the time is a good rule ..
Hugs Judy

Welcome D!! Listen to Judy's advice. I came here 2 years ago and had been on a "diet" for about 3 months. The ladies here encouraged me to make healthy food changes that I could live with forever. I have become aware of nutrition and not just calories over time and it has made all the difference.
