Talking An intro; I'm new 'round here. :-)

Hello! I recently joined 3FC, so I wanted to say hi and give a quick intro.

I'm 35 years old, not married, no kids (just furry ones), have an amazing boyfriend of almost a year and a half, and I live a pretty satisfying life for the most part. :-)

I've struggled with my weight for about 10 years now and I've been on EVERY diet under the sun. I most recently (about 2 years ago) did a liquid diet dealio and lost almost 50 pounds. Then I met my boyfriend and got lazy with the dieting, but managed to keep the weight off. Recently I've gone hog wild with the eating (stress eating), and in about one month's time I'm now up 12 pounds. Not as bad as it could be I guess, but I'd maintained and gotten used to the low 240's for awhile, so this recent 12 pound spike is pretty disheartening.

So anyway, here I am back in the saddle. I need to lose these new pounds and then continue on from there. This time around I'm calorie counting. Today was my first full day tracking and counting and I ended at just under 1500 cals. I'm still trying to determine exactly how many I should have a day, but 1500 sounded like a good place to start.

Anyway. I'm rambling. Its nice to be here and I look forward to getting to know everyone! :-)

you're in some good company with calorie counting around here and there's a lot of help people can give you if you need advice.

Also, just wanted to extend a congrats on halting the back slide when you did, it is so easy to put all the weight back on before you know it so give yourself a big kudos for starting before that happens.

Look forward to seeing you around, post often!

Default Intro from me too

Hi, I'm a newbie too. Still haven't figured out how the heck to post wihtout it being a reply to somoen else....Help!

I'm 43, 3 grown kids, been with my partner for 27years so far.

I have battled weight all my life, but am now at the heaviest ever.
Not for long!! I don't wont the life I can see ahead of myself, so I'm getting of my *** and doing something about it. On that note, off to the garage to spend some intimate time with the treadmill!!!

Have a great day....

Sandie

Welcome to you both! Don't by shy to jump right in, we're pretty chatty 'round here.

Sandie, when you're on the main page of a forum (looking at all the posts before clicking on one), in the top left hand corner at the top of the lits os "new thread." Click that to start you're own.

Welcome! this is one of the friendliest, most encouraging weight-loss groups on the Web. I've looked at many other forums, but this one is amazing, especially the 100 lb. Club ladies.

Post often, so we get to know you!

Default Welcome to the group!

The folks around here are wonderful!

I am also counting calories; I am a lifetime WW member and I've gone back many times, but it was just getting really stale for me. I have lost 8.5 lbs since I started at the beginning of June, so I really think calorie counting is doing me well! I track on fitday.com.

If you go to the calorie counters section here on 3FC I believe they have a sticky for how many calories daily to reduce your weight. If I'm not mistaken I think you should aim for around 1900 a day (that's what I'm doing). But absolutely double check it because I could be wrong.

In any case, welcome!

Welcome Breeezie! This is a great place with lots of support and information. I started off at 1500 cal with similar stats but then bumped it up when I added more exercise (I've made many adjustments along the way & I'm still learning). It's all about finding what works for you :-) Glad your getting started, all the best!
