We are starting a Biggest Loser competition at work today.  We are computing by percentage of weight lost.  7 people are getting in on it and there is $140 for the winner.  We are doing this through April 1st.  I have to admit it's a little intimidating.  I've never tried to lose or really even manage my weight before.  Truth be told, I used to smoke.  I quit several years ago.  And when they say you gain weight when you quit, they aren't kidding.  I gained more from quitting then I did with either of my pregnancies!  I'm looking to lose between 10 and 20 pounds.  I know diet and exercise are important, which I need to be better about.  Planning will be the key.  Any and all help, advise, and tips are greatly appreciated.  Any WW recipes are also appreciated.  I will search here, pinterest, and the internet for WW and healthy recipes to "fool" my family into eating.  :)

Dr Phil said the other day that will power has nothing to do with it.  It's all about programming yourself to do it.

Believe it or not, I was in the overweight category.  I can stand to lose some.

Susan, I'd love to know where you have 20 pounds to lose from.   But, we'll be there.   I am in too.   I have got to lose 40-50 pounds.   I just don't like the way I look.   I have been scouring Pinterest for lower fat/cal recipes.   I'll post what I find here.
