Hello all,
I am new around here. May I join in?


I am currently a house wife and I have close to 100 lbs to lose. I feel tired and depressed all the time because of my weight and just recenty I have developed back issues among other things. My husband has Spina Bifida and he is totally independent but I do need to help breakdown his wheelchair and that has done some damage. I am looking for support in my weight loss journery. I have tried many diets and weight loss pills but never found the one that worked for me...with that said, I am not on any program at the moment. I've cut out the soda, sweets and fried foods. I have started drinking more water and exercising. I am really want to focus on building strength in my upper body as well as the other parts.

Welcome, fellow Kansan.

I'm so sorry to hear that you're having back problems, I know how bad those can be...I had back surgery for scoliosis when I was younger, so I have pain on and off. Anyways, I'm glad you're here, this is a wonderful place.

Looking forward to chatting with you.

Thanks for the welcome Cassie.
May I ask what program you are on? You lost 50lbs? So it must be the right one for you.

Hey Muffit! Love the avatar!

There are so many programs to choose from, and there's tons of information on 3FC about many programs and forums to support a lot of them. Lots of us here have sort of developed our own programs through trial and error, and it sounds like you're well on your way to doing the same thing.

If I may make one suggestion - logging foods has been so helpful for me, and statistically, those who log their food intake lose more weight and are more successful at keeping it off. So, I would suggest doing that, and I know that fitday.com and thedailyplate.com are pretty painless ways of doing it. This will also give you valuable information if you want to select a more formal plan or if you want to see a nutritionist, etc.

Glad to have you join us! I look forward to watching you succeed.

I am just counting my calories and exercising 6 days a week. It's working great for me!

Welcome! It seems like the majority of us here are calorie counters and exercisers. No discrimination though, you pick the program and we will all cheer you on.

I just did some serious exercise for the first time in a few years and boy am I pooped! I have exercise on Demand through the cable company (a blessing). It was The Firm: Dance...My body feels like jelly at the moment!

I was just talking to my personal trainer the other day. I used to have severe back problems. If I stood at the sink for more then 10 minutes doing dishes, my back would tense up to the point I had to take a break. I can now thankfully say that this is no longer an issue for me. This is one of the many benefits of weight loss, and doing weight training
