Wink Hola! I'm 22 and I want to LIVE!



I'm new obviously. I've peeked in a few times but never committed myself to joining in. So, I might as well start with my story! I'll keep it short.

I'm 22 years old and way overweight. My doctor wants me to get blood work because she suspects hypothyroidism but I know that isn't nearly the whole problem (if it is, in fact, a problem at all. We'll see!) I haven't had the peachiest life and I am definitely an emotional eater. I'm trying to channel my emotions in more constructive directions. I'm trying to battle my personal demons. I think that is the biggest thing to overcome for me. I've lost 15-20 pounds so far. A good start to my long term goal.

Also, I would be totally open to a buddy! Feel free to message me.

Also, hi everyone!

Gracias! Estoy aprendiendo! I live in Southern New Mexico so I'm surrounded by it but I'm not fluent. Yet! I have a passion for language and actually hoping to live in South America for a while. I have a friend from Peru and one from Argentina. I'm going to go with her to Peru when she visits her family. Immersion seems to be my plan for success.

I'm not following any plan exactly. I like the South Beach Diet. Love whole foods. I'm just putting together my own thing I think. How about you?

Oh, and your picture is beautiful!

thank you. my avatar is when i had long hair (i recently cut it and cant wait for it to grow back)
I live in Los Angeles and so am surrounded by Spanish speakers also. Plus I'm a Chicana Going to Peru sounds awesome!
Im a huge calorie-counter and that has been working for me. I figure once I hit a plateau I will change it up and might decide to try an actual diet like fat smash.

Welcome to the board! I hope you find this place as amazing as I do and you stick around. It's a great place to come when you feel you are having a weak moment, or just want a good strong push in the right direction!

Congrats on your weightloss so far, remember to take it one day at a time and before you know it you will be at goal!

Muchas gracias everyone! I already think this is a great place.

I'm 25 and am just a bit heavier than you. 3FC is FABULOUS! You've found a great place for support and ideas. I did (and still try to do) South Beach, and I think it's a great plan because it focuses on healthy, whole foods. A lot of people have the misconception that it's low carb, but it's not--it's good carb

Oh, and just a few weeks ago, I chopped about a foot of hair off (donated to Locks of Love). I'm currently in the "frowing back" stage as well
