Default Just wanted to share...

I just joined 3FC yesterday, so I am still getting the hang of this. I am 28 years old, have a 10 year old son & a great boyfriend (of almost 2 years).
I have gradually put weight on over the years & in the past 3, my weight has yo-yo'd a LOT. I started weight watchers back at the end of 06 & lost about 25 pounds. Then my ex & I started having problems & he left. Therefore, I lost another 30 (stress diet). I met my boyfriend later that year & started putting the weight back on. Meanwhile, I went to the doctor & found out my thyroid level was VERY high. After about 9 months of going back to the Dr. every couple months, they finally got my level right. Since then I have continued to gain weight & I am now the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I am so embarrased about myself & the way I look. The last few months, I have really been trying to focus on what I am eating, but still do not seem to be loosing. Tuesday night I decided I have had ENOUGH! A little boy at football practice (maybe 4 years old) asked me why I was so fat. I told him I don't know and I after he walked away, I CRIED. That was it for me. I went home & rode my stationary bike 3 miles. I felt great afterward. Yesterday I kept track of my calories & rode the bike another 3 miles & walked a mile on the treadmill. I am drinking lots of water & one Green Tea a day. This morning I rode the bike harder, but only for 2.5 miles. I am going to walk a mile durning my lunch again. I am not trying to push myself too hard, but I know I have to do this full force for me to stick with it. Like many out there, if I dont see results soon, I get discouraged & give up. I have many reasons to loose this weight (cruise in Nov, cousins wedding in April, hopefully my wedding soon(no, he has not asked yet, but I am hoping), more babie, etc) but the main reason I want to loose this is for ME & my family. I want to be happy with myself, to be able to do things with my family & to be there for many many more years.

Thanks for listening to my long story
I have many people to support me, but it is so nice to have thousands here that have been and are going through what I am.
Good Luck to all!

It sounds like you are off to a great start. I would just say to make sure you are eating enough calories still if you are going to be exercising at full force when you first start out.

Good job, keep us posted, and I'm sure you'll be seeing and feeling results in no time!

Welcome! Let me tell you that you can do this. You are definitely young enough so that you can have a restart for the rest of your life! (Some of us take a little longer to figure it out, but......)

Good luck to you! Keep posting. It really helps.

00h I'm the same way - if I don't see physical results, I wanna give up. But WE CANT! It sounds like you're doing this for all the right reasons. Stay strong and you CAN do this! Good luck!

Welcome to 3FC!!

(Oh.. and you are taking an amazing step... that gives you the right to not be embarrassed by yourself any longer! Now give yourself a hug and be proud of who you are, you are strong enough to take this step and deserve to love yourself for who you are, not what you look like!)

Welcome to 3fcs! I had a similar experience many years ago. I was a movie rental place and a little boy came up to me and asked me what I weighed. It was really embarassing.
Height: 6'2
Starting weight/ Current low weight/"redline" weight
Total: 267.6 pounds.

I will do the Komen 60 mile walk for breast cancer again this year!!
Next goal is 175: Pounds from goal = 4.2.

I had one of those moments... I was in a dollar store with very narrow aisles, and squeezed against one side to let a family pass by. The little girl said "mommy, that lady's fat!" The mother quickly shushed her.

It hurt, but surprisingly wasn't enough to get me off my duff... I guess that didn't happen until I realized I couldn't buy any jeans big enough for me at the store!

We all have our wake up calls, I think. I'm glad that yours called to you and that you've found your way here. Good luck to you!

Oh, and we all get off track at times... Don't ever feel embarrassed or ashamed of yourself. Take this moment to embrace all the good in yourself and move forward.
