Hi all.

I am joining in desperation. I have generally eaten healthy food, but occasionally too much of it. The last couple of years, I have found myself eating almost compulsively at times. I think it is stress. I am about 20 pounds overweight right now, which I never have been. I think it is the combo of this new, weird eating pattern and a metabolism that has screeched to a halt.

I am 44, my kids are getting older (more manageable, less stress) and I would LOVE to get back to a really healthy lifestyle. I found this site googling info on organic drink mixes to kick start a change in eating. I was looking at the Ultimate Meal mix.

Anyway, I really liked the postings. I loved reading about the recipes and your tips for eating healthy in a time crunch. Etc.

I hope to keep reading and get motivated to relax and get back to a healthy eating pattern. Any comments on the Ultimate Meal appreciated. I don't plan to eat this way forever, but I have found in the past if I kick start with a meal replacement shake it helps me behave!

Hi to all and thanks for letting me join the group.
