Hi Morgaine! I just joined BellaOnline as I am looking for fellow travellers on the weight loss journey. I have read the Dr. Phil book and am a HUGE Dr. Phil fan; my copy is actually loaned out at the moment. I am around 300 lbs, with weight issues all my life, so I know the struggle. Tomorrow I move towards daily 30-45 minutes of cardio - walking or step aeorbics. I have started walking more and feel much, much better. No real weight loss (not following any food plan), so I am here to support ya, girl! Keep at it!
