Well, I signed up for this site one week ago today. Having followed the plan for 7 days, I've lost 9 pounds! (Yes, I'm tooting my own horn for a moment! :) ) Anyway, having said that, I have a long way to go to reach my goals. But, this week has been a really good start, I think. I'm excited to see what will happen over the next month or so. Just wanted to say in a public forum that I think the advice here is fantastic! That's all!
