Smile New here

Hi All,

I found this web site a few weeks ago and now I am finally joining! I have been over weight my whole life and have been on just about every diet there is. I am turning 30 in 7 months and have decided that I will lose weight for that.

I think after a million diets I have found what I was missing all along. 1) finding a life style I can live with, 2) finding support both online and in person.

On 12/5/06, I decided to become a vegetarian. I am not a big meat person anyway (which made the 10 times I have done Atkins seem funny!) and have been a veggie a few times before. I have found many products that I can use for meat to give me some variety which is great. I also hired a personal trainer. She comes to my house 2 days a week and I bought all the needed equipment. I am determined this time. I have told everyone I know about my life style change so I can have accountability.

Since last week I 12/5 I have lost 6 lbs. I still need to lose a bunch more but I am on my way!!

Welcome jenn, and congrats on all you've done so far

I love this place, because I am all about support and accountability, and we have plenty of that around here

We were vegan for a few years, and still eat vegan meals quite a bit, matter of fact, today, my lunch is Boca Italian sausage, good stuff

Anyway, welcome again, and hope to see you around here often

Hi Jenn!


You are SO right about the importance of support AND the value of finding a plan that works FOR YOU!

This site has so much to offer of BOTH of the things that you need, so read a lot and post a lot. Above all, trust in yourself to make good choices that will get you on your way to where you want to be.
