Angry newbie saying hello

Just wanted to say hi to everyone, today's my first day here and there is so much to read it's unbelievable, and it seems like this is a terrific place for support and motivation.

Do you need to be on any specific 'diet' to use this forum? I noticed that there are several listed elsewhere...just don't want to be in the wrong place!

Nope, we are non-denominational here. Everyone is doing their own thing.

Welcome 2by4. Always good to see a new face. Only thing this list is for is people who need to lose 100 or more pounds. And even at that I don't think anyone is going to get tossed off if they have less.
Goal of 245 Made 12/21/05 Half the man.
New Goal to regain the above goal.

I've been here since Sunday, so you aren't the only newbie! But it is really nice to have a group of people to whom I can say, yeah, I have 100 lbs to lose, but I've lost 26, and I exercised today, and I am a valuable person into the bargain!
It looks to me like I may be happy here.

Jump right in! All sorts of different types of weight loss plans around these parts. Some with 100 pounds left to loose and some who have lost all or most of their weight. Means that you get great weight loss advice from people with all sorts of different perspectives.

261 (highest)
255 (WW start)
190 (Current)
155 (Goal)

Begin again, with wise intention.

One of the greatest things about this forum is that nobody "puts down" the diet plan others may be using. There's no "I do Weight Watchers and it's the ONLY way to go" or "Atkins seems so unhealthy, you should try South Beach" or "TOPS is the most sensible", and on and on. Hey, whatever works for you, then go for it and tell us about your great results and let us celebrate in it with you! We can support each other without all doing it the same way! Viva la difference
