Count me in too!!
About 5 years ago, I made the same decision as I'm making now and managed to lose about 40 lbs at roughly 2lbs per week. I just cut out snacking, junk food and things that I knew were loaded with fat/calories. I managed to keep the weight off for about a year and a half, and then my poor eating habits came back with a vengeance! I gained the previously lost 40 plus another 15!!! I'm a walking time bomb for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and many other obesity related illnesses.
It's definitely time to yank my head out of the sand and face reality!!!
