Smile I have just joined :)

Hey everyone, I have just joined. I have tried to lose weight so many times before now, and today I just though I have to do something now!

My weight now is 238lbs and my goal weight is 126lbs.

I've not had any support from my family in the past, so I've always gone at it alone. Then I found this forum, so hopefully I'll make some friends, and we can support each other

I hope you fall every bit in love with the members in these forums as I have. It's truly been my saving grace and what's kept me going when I've felt like quitting. Best of luck!!

I've found great inspiration and ideas from this site! Trust me, what ever silly question you have, what ever odd occurrence comes up, or what ever obstacle you face someone here has been there, or is currently there.

Don't be shy asking for support/help!

YAY! Welcome aboard!! It's amazing what some encouraging words, or a kick in the tush when you need it, can do for a girl (or boy!). I know I tried losing weight a million times, but this time was so different for a lot of reasons, one of which was the support of the 3FC family! We discuss hilarious things (like POO !) and serious things and all things in between, so never feel shy to bring anything up

Best of luck to you, post often & keep us updated on your progress.

Started: 323
Now: 171 - nope, 165 now!
NOPE -- 162 now! Holy crap i've lost a PERSON!
Goal: 160

Welcome Emily! Your family will be amazed and I bet they'll want to jump on board once they see you start losing some serious weight. In the meantime, you have us

Don't hesitate to jump in to whichever threads and groups interest you. Everyone here is friendly and supportive.

I'm so glad you're here!

"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..."
