Talking Hi all Newbie here

My name is Victoria and I am pretty new here. I posted a few times about a year ago but never really stuck with it. I am hoping that being involved with this group will help me stay on track. I will post my profile soon but I just wanted to say hi for now

Welcome Victoria and Jen. You are taking a great step by posting here. We have tons of support and motivation to offer.

If you learn from your suffering, and really come to understand the lesson you were taught, you might be able to help someone else who's now in the phase you may have just completed. Maybe that's what it's all about after all...

Hi Victoria and welcome to the 100lb club!

I've just read your profile, and I'd like to say that I completely understand about being scared. I actually think that fear will be a really positive thing for you - it is a great motivator!

I gave up smoking 6 months ago because I was scared for my health - I was terrified of getting some horrible cancer and having to have my voicebox removed or something. The thing is, I used that fear as my motivation - i looked at loads of cancer websites and looked at statistics related to smoking and cancer - and guess what? I successfully gave up smoking on my first attempt! So I say embrace your fear!

It's a bit harder with dieting, as we can't quit food altogether - but it can be done! look at the successes on this forum - these people were scared too - and turned their fear into POSITIVE ACTION!

Sorry, I've gone off on one a bit!

stick with us and you'll be fine!

Love Amanda x

PS: Cute dog and username! What exactly happens at a 'pug party'?

Welcome. I'm new too though.

Cute dog. I wanna get a puppy my daughter loves dogs. She giggles when they come in and give her kisses. MIL has a dog but the dog won't come near her, they have her so spoiled.

Welcome Victoria,

I read your profile and I definitely understand. I didn't weigh myself for a long time, then a few years ago I did and saw the scale hit 364. I was scared and imagined myself creeping to 400, that is when I decided I needed to keep better track of my weight and start working on myself. Even though I am only 20 lbs below that point now, it is something that has kept me from gaining the weight back completely. I am restarting yet again, but I have never given up on myself. You can do it, we all can do it, it just may take some time.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
