Default Hi, I am New

Well I joined a few months back but was not ready to start my journey. I am out from behind the blanket now....I am nearly 300 lbs, 295 lbs to be exact. Depressed because of it? Yes! I am going on my journey and understand now that it will take a long time but if I take it day by day, pound by pound, it will eventually come off. So, I am looking forward to getting support, giving support, and just sharing my journey with everyone

Thanks everyone. I gained all this weight over a time period of 11 years so I know that I need to atleast give myself a good couple of years to take it off I am okay with that, as long as it eventually comes off.

MommyAndWifey, how cool of you to jump into this crazy journey to health with us! Choosing health isn't just a wise thing to do for you, it's also a wonderful gift to give your kids and your spouse. And you will be teaching your kids about good choices, good nutrition and the power of "I can!"

Now, you are, of course, really a mommy and a wife, but do you know what else you REALLY are?

You are a FAT-BUSTING, TAKE-NO-PRISONERS, HARD-HITTING WOMAN OF MIGHT! You are equipped with CUNNING to trick those FatMeanies into leaving you, diamond-edged DETERMINATION to mow down any obstacle stupid enough to get in your way and JOY enough to ensure that a lot of fun ensues between now and goal. With all that going on, you are going to be a great addition to our ranks and will help us trample pounds of fat beneath our sexy, stilletto-heeled feet. Glad you joined us!

I really couldn't give a better welcome than Skinny so I'll just ditto what she said!

And I, too, will ditto Skinny's comment! You're in great company here. And you just might find how quickly you can make things happen with exercise and proper eating! I was totally surprised with how quickly I started losing once I put my mind to it. You'll find lots of support in here! Welcome to the group.


Life style change started on Jan 13, 2011. I was going to lose 100 pounds by Christmas.
I lost 93 pounds by Oct 1, 2011 and am holding there for now. We'll see what happens.
New goal: To maintain at about 160 Final Goal: To decide if I need to lose more

I will also ditto what Skinny said! So glad you're here, this is a fantastic place to get and give support.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly..."

We're glad to have you and will be here to help. One thing to remember that I'm sure you have heard about other things, but is also true about weight loss: there is no such thing as a stupid question. Don't be afraid to come here and ask for advice or to ask questions about something you don't understand. We're all in this together and chances are if you have a question or are going through some particular problem there is someone here who has been there, done that.

I quit smoking on Oct. 20, 2008 Now I right and more.

Welcome! You have a great attitude. It did not come on in one year and it is so much better to take it off slowly. I have finally came to grips with that. So you are ahead of the game with your attitude!!
