Talking I am new to the group

Just wanted to introduce myself.. My name is Irene . I am a Canadian mom of 4 kiddos. I have been down this road so many times and I would just love to get it right for once. I need to loose about 100 pounds 'Give or take' ..I will know when I get there. I am not sure what kind of diet plan I am following or if I even like the word DIET. I need a lifestyle change.. I am a junk food addict , an emotional eater ..a boredom eater. I joined a nutrition class yesterday. And my goal for this week is to eat breakfast. I am looking forward to meeting some new friends , getting and giving support and just learning how to take better care of me

Welcome! I am pretty brand new myself although I have lurked for a couple of months now while trying to decide what changes I want to make lifewise.

I think you are setting yourself up for success. I heard making one change and making that change a habit is the way to go!! I wish you lots of luck!
230 currently
200 first goal
120 ultimately

We began each journey with but a single step.

welcome Irene. Good to meet you. I'm like you....hate the word diet (the first 3 letters spell "die" you know), and like you I am aiming for a lifestyle change. I think you'll like it here.

If you are facing in the right direction, all you have to do is keep walking.

Hello Irenie,
I'm new here too and decided to do a lifestyle change too. I am going to start with WW and the points but will modify it to fit my needs. I will also try walking each day but that's it for now. I need to drop about 115lbs and have decided it will take as long as it takes. Hope you check in daily and I wish you luck on this journy we are starting.

Hey Irene! Welcome! My grandmother's name was Irene.

I used to never eat breakfast either. Now I look forward to it. Good luck!

Welcome Irene! I'm pretty new too. (There's a lot of us eh?) But these ladies (and men).. are just great. I think you'll love it here. And it's just so much easier to do it with a bunch of people who know what you're going through. We're all in the same boat.. and it's a safe place to be.
