    To the wonderful members of the WISH board,

    I just felt like I needed to post to let you guys know that I am grateful to you all.

    I have been lurking here for a few weeks now. I have just recently decided to try and improve my life - both spiritually and physically. So I think finding this board was really a perfect coincidence.

    This board has provided me with a lot of useful information to help me lose the pounds I need to get rid of. Here are some of the information that I got here that I have taken advantage of:

    - This is where I first heard of CAD (Carbohydrate Addict's Diet). I picked up a book from the library to learn more about it and I'm currently on my third week on this diet.

    - low-carb recipes. I baked my first low-carb cheesecake last week and I'm having a slice for breakfast most days! I'm glad I won't have to eat an omelet every morning now.

    - ideas on low-carb food. I just ordered the low-carb tortilla somebody recommended. I can't wait to get them.

    - exercise ideas. I got the Walk Away Pounds tapes because of all the positive posts about it. I've only tried it a couple of times but I am really liking it. My daughter even joins me on the walks.
    I'd also like to try-out Curves but I'm still not sure about it yet. I have trouble going out of the house to exercise.

    - other low-carb web-sites

    - positive thoughts WISH'ers share with each other!

    Thanks a lot for all the information and inspiration!

    I don't think I'll pick-up the WISH challenge clip-art right now. My main objective right now is really to work on my spiritual side. But I'm really excited about all the changes happening with me and I owe some of them to you. Thanks!

    Congratulations on your decisions to make some changes in your life! It sounds like you got a good start -- and whether you "officially" join the WISH group or not, keep coming back for more encouragement. There's plenty to go around! ;)

    Why don't you stop by Curves to check it out. They will let you try it free for a week before you have to make a decision. I can assure you that there are all shapes, sizes, and ages at the one I go to and I have NEVER seen anyone make a judgement on anyone else! If you don't feel comfortable, then save it for another time.

    Best of luck!

    Thanks for the great post! I sure hope you do less lurking and more writing. :) It's the people who make this place the warm and friendly haven that it is. Good luck with your spiritual and physical transformation. Sometimes those things go hand in hand. Losing weight is like emerging from a cocoon. We feel like a brand new person and our thoughts about ourselves are much more positive and open minded.

    Hope to see you here soon!!! :)

    Isn't the WISH a wonderful community to be part of ---- and don't worry --- you don't have to grab that clipart to be an 'official member'!;)

    Please stop back and visit us often. You sound like someone that could be quite an inspiration to us all!
