Hi there just trying to get started. I am a few shy of 100 but still wanted to be with people who understand having a long way to go. I am trying not to think about the length of the road, just wanting to get started. Encouraged by it almost being spring and better outdoor weather to get out in. Never done anything like this forum, just need contact with people like me.
You've come to the right place. Everyone here is awesome and full or support and ideas.
It's all about baby steps. If you get overwhelmed by the big picture focus on mini goals. We just started a new thread for a St. Patty's day challenge. Perhaps joining a challenge would help give you some extra encouragement.
Hey, welcome. I like your screen name. You can absolutely do this. There are lots of 3FC'ers that know just where you are coming from including myself. We are all here for you. The is not only support here, but answers too. You have come to the right place.

This forum is a big part of what got me motivated and is keeping me motivated. I still have a long way to go myself, but I'm only 6 pounds away from my first goal and it just gets easier. The best thing to do is baby steps, and set mini goals in between your final one. Something to look forward to that's more attainable.
