Exclamation I am new here!

Hi everyone! I have just joined 3FC and wanted to introduce myself, and hopefully find a buddy on here. I am new to online support concept.

I am a 22 year old female, married, no children. I haven't always been overweight. Over the course of the last 5-6 years I have gained 100 pounds. I have mild endrometriosis (was severe in my late teens) and interstitial cystitis (bladder disorder). My weight gain started with being put on the evil steriod - Prednisone. I gained 35 lbs during my first 3 weeks on it. I was on it for about 2 months and then went on a variety of other medicines. Years later I have finally gotton all of my symptoms under control and have felt great in those departments.

However, I paid the price of weight gain. I have had such a hard time trying to get back to a comfortable size. I have yo-yo dieted, tried every weight loss scheme and have given up many times before in the past. Not this time.

My plan is just a simple reduced calorie diet (kinda following the zone diet principals) and exercise, exercise, exercise. I am blessed to have a full fitness center available to me at my apartment complex - something I hadn't take advantage of consistently in the past.

My husband is 6"4, 190 lbs and VERY active. I want to be active and enjoy life the way he does. Because he is not in the same place I am (as far as weight issues) I am hoping to find an online buddy (or buddies!) on here to help give (and receive!) support.

Hope to talk to you all soon! and thanks for taking a minute to read my blurb above!

to you, Melissa! I like the sound of your plan.

One thing that's helping me is not thinking in terms of being on (or off ) a diet, and instead, making a commitment to healthy eating for life.
