Default Hello everyone :-)

So I am new in this weight loss thingy, well not really new, but this time I mean it really seriously.

Well I would be really happy, if I could join your 100lb club, if u guys dont mind.

First I would like to say, I was born in europe, so excuse some of my english :-) I come here in USA because of marriage 2 years ago. We have with my hubby 16 months old baby boy :-) I love them both so much, so I would like to be healthy for them.

I still dont know, where in this forum I could belong?...

Today is my big day. I have big troubles with yoyo efect. So I will just start slowly. My goal for this week (starting today) is drink at least 6 x 8 oz glasses of water.

Well as u can see, I have over 100lbs to lose and I would be happy to be in contact with somebody, who have same problem :-)

Welcome Lindunka!

I know what you mean about the yo-yo thing. My weight has ranged from 120-250 pounds. I think a big part of things is not getting into an all or nothing mindset, which I have a tendency to do with both food & exercise. For example, I used to feel if I couldn't do the 45 mins of cardio plus weight training workout I had planned, why bother? And then weeks, sometimes months would go by before I exercised. Now, I tell myself, "consistency is key" (forgot who said that) & figure a consistent 30 mins of cardio is better than nothing. It's all about keeping the habits.

Default Hello!

Hi there! I could have written your post myself. I sent you a PM with my email address in case you'd like to support each other. Either way, good luck on your journey!

Hi Vek: "Blue Team" and "Black Team" refer to The Biggest Loser Challenge in the exercise thread....

Lidunka!

It's wonderful to have you!
Feel free to post any questions, problems, feelings...anything really!

the wonderful thing about our 100 pound club, is that we ALL know the feelings that go along with this challenge. This is a wonderful and very supportive group.

So glad you're here!

Linda

Hi there! I'm new too - this place seems like a great community, though!

Can I ask where abouts in Europe you're from, originally? Your name makes me think maybe Central or Eastern Europe?

Hi Broadabroad! A geek of SF, no? Hope is Trekkies
I read your description and I found we have a lot of things in common.

Welcome! I am also pretty new, but I have found that everyone in this club are very supportive and are going through the same weight loss issues.
