Getting started

It was really exciting yesterday to meet the other participants in this year's program - and to know I wasn't the only repeating participant. I was encouraged by several who did very well last year, kept off what they lost and came back to lose more. Kudos to Laura for taking the lead on this program, even though she can't make it through that opening without a tear or two - she's truly passionate about helping all of us reach our goals, whether it's 15 or 50 pounds.

The partners in the program are awesome. Jamie is the embodiment of fitness and healthy living. The ladies form the Lake County Health District are wonderful; they are involved in so many programs in the community all designed to help us live healthier lives. And the best surprise of all this year is Aladdin's Eatery as our partner restaurant - Thank you Daad Chamoun! I know we will all enjoy stretching our palates to experience new dishes that are low cal and delicious. There's hummus and cucumbers at my house today!

We are off and running....well, at least walking to get started!
