I'm joining in. I haven't been to the doctor for ages, but the fatigue and weight gain became too much for me. He recommended the Dean Ornesh plan. It's not bad, but I can't eliminate meat entirely. I have a freezer full of it. I've lost 5 pounds over the last 2 weeks. Thanks to all of you, I'm going to look into Curves. I just know that it's going to be easier having my online support group.
