Talking Here I am! *holding for applause*

I'm so new here it hurts (well, it doesn't really _hurt_, but you know what I mean ), and this is my lil' intro to the club where I belong!

I have 150 lbs to loose - and so far I've lost four. Yay! 146 left!

Dancing carrot. How appropriate.

It's my third week of dieting (have not had the nerve to weigh-in more than once, new years eve is the next one - felt it was the right date to officially end being fat whilst 2009 ended as well. It's been a bad and fat year.), so I might have lost more than 4 pounds - but it's what on the scale that counts!!

Good news of the day; My brain tried to make an excuse for me not to go to the gym today, but it didnít succeed! I donít know whatís happened, but I have no excuses anymore. I used to have only excuses. Now itís like Iím content with life as it is, and I donít really need to change a routine thatís working for my body. Even though itís not what my brain would like Ė the rest of me is happy!

Yay!

WELCOME

So glad you are here. Good for you . . . going to the gym when you really didn't feel like it.

Good job on the weight loss.

This is going to be your year!

Sounds like you're committed to getting the job done! Give it time, work past this initial discomfort stage - where it's still new and foreign and awkward and HARD. Ridding oneself of those old bad habits and incorporating new and healthy ones does take some time to get accustomed to. But rest assured, you stick with it, you push yourself, accepting NO excuses - and before you know it, what was once downright unpleasant WILL be comfortable, and normal and natural.

And when those incredible benefits start surfacing - hold on tight. You're in for the ride of your life.

I look forward to hearing of your continued progress and success.

Welcome!!

You are from Oslo, that is awesome! My office mate in college was from Oslo and I spent a lot of time there a few years ago. I loved the city (also got to see Bergen and Stavanger).

Matt; thank you! As for the city I'm getting pretty fed up with it (might've lived here for too long in a tiny apartment ;D) - but I also used to live in Stavanger and that's waaay more awesome me thinks Anywho, I'm moving to the US (hopefully!!!) in august of 2010. Hence why I need to lose weight.

OK, so not hence, but hence that most people I've heard of come back from the US as fat - and I have no, absolutely no!, desire to become fatter. I'm fat enough as it is
