Default Glad to be here!

Hi, everyone.

While I've been pulling myself out of a BIG funk and enjoying the fresh air and some fresh veggies, I was shocked when I got on the scale today. Instead of feeling bad and binging, I decided to read inspirational things. I somehow ended up here and decided to join. Cheers!

This is a great place to be. You made a fantastic first step. Now you just need to keep moving forward. You can't change the past, but you can figure out how to make tomorrow be what you want it to be.

I am glad that you are here too! If you want to read inspirational things, I suggest that you go to the goal section and read success stories. They always inspire me!

That's awesome! You're already on the right path and ahead of the game by not letting what the scale said bring on a binge. What the scale says is a number you have the power to change! I ended up on 3FC through google after pretty much saying "enough is enough" and taking myself in hand. Congratulations on the start of your journey and good luck with everything. 3FC is a great place for support, ideas, ranting, advice.

Good choices! And welcome to the forum.


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
Just Keep On Keepin' On
