Hi everyone! I just started a "Biggest Loser" group at work and, although I've been down this road before, I'm raring to go!

A little about me...I've been battling with obesity since I can remember. I would like to lose 130# but this time I plan on taking baby steps and making it a life change instead of changing for others.

My Dad just died a month ago and I'm not only struggling with that but depression and other things. I eat to feel better, so this is going to be a real chalenge for me.

Hoping to make some friends and, if I'm lucky, be one too.

Take care!

3FC is a great place for support and friendship. I can't imagine doing this without my fellow chicks.

I lost my dad when I was younger and really gained a lot of weight after that... so I think it is great that you have come here to help you deal with things. You'll find lots of support.

Welcome! This is a great place for support. I don't think that I could have done this without 3FC.
