Default Hi! I'm new and I want to introduce myself!

Hello everyone!
This looks like a great place to get the support that I am looking for in my weight loss journey. My name is Robyne and I am 3 weeks into my "diet/new way of eating". I've struggled my whole life with my weight, but the past 8 years have been really out of control. Once I broke thru that 200lb mark I just didn't seem able to get down again. After I quit smoking in 2002 the weight has just kept piling on. I have lost some, and then gained it back with a few extra pounds for good measure. So, how am I doing this? Well, I am going to count calories, religiously, using FitDay and I recently joined the gym and even bought myself 6 sessions with a trainer. Reasons I want to lose the weight: I am just so really tired of being fat. I don't want to be a fat mama to my son. I want to have more energy and be able to run around with him, and fit down that darn slide (which, no, I don't!). I am tired of shopping in plus sized stores. I want to fit in ALL of the office chairs without having to make those adjustments to the arms, meanwhile hoping no one will notice. Oh, and most recently I was in the ER with a kidney stone and the doctor said very matter of factly that an ultrasound usually would show a stone 90% of the time, but with my body mass the chances were under 50%. I was like "oh - yes, I see" Inside I was thinking "OMG I'm too fat for a freaking ultrasound!!!!" I had already started my diet and had lost 7 lbs by this point but I didn't bother sharing this with him. Anyway, I'm excited, I'm pumped, and I'm happy to find a community of like minded ladies (and gentlemen) who can relate to what I am going through.
Looking forward to getting to know you.
Cheers!

Well hello and welcome from one Robyne to this here Robin.

I could have written that post of yours. I felt so many of the things that you are experiencing. So many.

Your plan sounds WONDERFUL and throroughly EXCITING. I want you to indeed get EXCITED, because you're about to embark on a wonderful and thrilling life-altering journey.

I greatly look forward to hearing much more from you and hearing all about your success and all the joy that it brings along. Robin

13 pounds! What an exciting, wonderful start! And Robynes here do incredibly well, so I would anticipate that you'll be just as successful as the other Robins have been. I look forward to hearing about your experiences and going through this journey with you. I know 3FC has made all the difference to me.

I am so glad that you joined us. That is great for making all those positive changes. Keep it up. Hopefully you'll have a good trainer that you can learn a lot from.

I started a program at the Y recently and it is tough--still in the beginning stages and getting those habits formed, really challenging. I am looking forward to succeeding with you!!!!

Welcome! I think we can all relate. Your plan sounds great; I wish I'd gotten some sessions with a trainer when I first started but I figured I already knew everything. LOL.

Your name's not going to hurt either. Lots of us around here losing some serious weight. It's weird since I don't meet that many Robin/yn/yne's in real life but 3FC is chuck full of them.

Have fun and enjoy the process.
