Default Me too! Can I join? (newbie alert)

Iíve been lurking about for a couple of days now and think your board is terrific!

My name is Kathy, Iím 43, divorced (happily), and have no kids (although I have a dog and cat who think they are, and nieces and nephews I try to spoil every chance I get).

Favorite saying: ďIíll have fries with that.Ē
Favorite food: Yes.
(Needless to say, I have struggled with a weight problem for years.)

Iíve been an advertising copywriter for the high tech industry for a long time now, and, like many writers, secretly harbor a dream of getting a novel published one day. Just one tiny hitch, youíve got to get the darn thing written firstÖ rats!

Iím 5ft. 2in, am currently at 252 pounds (my highest was 270), and would very much like to get below 200. Iíll negotiate the next goal, if need be, after that. Iím not currently subscribing to any particular diet. Iím just trying to eat a little less, especially fried foods (see earlier reference to beloved French fries), and exercise more (I get zero now).

Anyway, thatís me. Look forward to sharing and getting to know all of youÖ

Tallyho!

Kath

Hi Kath, Welcome I am new also. It is nice to know that we are not alone on our jouney. It may take a while but with new friends and support on our side, I am sure we can do it.

Once upon a time I went to WW and lost 65 lbs. I was very proud of myself for that accomplishment and got way to cocky. Lo and behold 30 lbs just seemed to jump right up on my body and decided to stay for the duration.

Now I am trying to do it on my own. I am walking on the treadmill every morning and trying to watch what I eat. It sure is hard though. But I am going to take it one day at a time and I am not going to beat myself up over any little slip ups.

hi Kathy!

I'm new too. It's good to know I'm not the only one with new aspirations in this new year!

Can't wait til we're all "old" here and have great success stories to share with the new ones.

Default Third Day

Hello All,

I'm on my third day OP and love reading everyone's post. It gives you a feeling of belonging to a wonderful cause! I would assume from the evidence that everyone like me needs to share your struggle or success with someone else that UNDERSTANDS. I've joined the Valentines day challange to loose 14 pounds by then. Good Luck to all of you.
