Default I'm Shrinking Pat

Hi everyone. Today I'm beginning a quest to lose more than 100 pounds. I made the decision last week and I was delighted to find this website and a forum for people like myself.

My lowest adult weight was 105 pounds in 1981 but I have gained more than 100 pounds since due to a series of events... automobile accident, surgery, unexpected pregnancy all occurring in the mid-1990s.

If you're interested, my story and pictures are on my website I just created to chart my progress.

I weigh 225 pounds and hope to lose 110 in 6-9 months, by increasing my activity level and reducing my caloric intake.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better and offering my support. (I'm a pretty good cheerleader)

Have a wonderful and productive day!

Pat

Hi Pat,

I just wanted to wish you well on reaching your goal and let you know that I enjoyed your web site, you and your children are absolutely beautiful. I need to start my own site up sometime, as soon as I figure out how to do it exactly See ya 'round the message boards.

Hi Pat! Welcome to 3FC! This is a GREAT place to get support, ideas, information, recipes, all sorts of stuff!

You have a really ambitious plan, I wish you the best of luck! That's a fairly short period of time to lose that much weight. What program will you be using?

Thank you for the nice welcome, the well wishes and the comments about my children. You are a sweetie pie!

I agree with you, this is a neat website. I've looked around quite a bit and found all kinds of great information. Yes, 110 pounds in 6-9 months is an ambitious goal, but not unattainble I don't think. And if I don't reach it, I'll just keep going until I do. I don't have a formal plan but my husband is a health nut (runs and lifts weights and still has a 30" waist) and he suggested that I keep it simple: increase my activity and reduce my caloric intake. He set me up on an exercize program of a 1 mile walk or 30 minutes of rowing each day (he has a bowflex). Thank you for the nice welcome.

Pat - Nothing like those surprise babies to wreak havoc on the waistline! I lost all my baby weight from my son and was looking hot (132 and a size 8)....three months later...SURPRISE! ...I was preggo with daughter. I haven't been the same since, but I'm workin' on it!

Thanks Slimdown! I appreciate your compliment. I don't really create websites for a living but I'm a print journalist (I've been a reporter and editor) and I lay out the front page, the jump page and editoral page of the newspaper so creating a website is a breeze.

Have a wonderful day!

I've heard it so much over the years, that it was just the natural thing to choose for a screenname here.

I LOVE your use of the word manatee. It reminds me of the Veggie Tales videos. Then I hear the song in my head:

"Oh Barbara Manatee (manatee)
You are the one for me (one for me)
Sent here from up above (up above)
You are the one I love (one I love)"
