This has been a lifelong battle for me. I've been a size 4 and a size 24. Currently, I'm in the middle. I started this on January 24th at 198 pounds. At January 30th, I weigh 188. 10 pounds gone so far. Woo hoo. But, I need the support of others because we wouldn't be here if vegetables were our favorite food. I want to be an active part of this community. I live in Northern California and work in high tech.
