Default New Here!


I am new here and in need of weight loss for my health!

I am 5'6", 32 and just had a baby last September and gained 70 pounds in that process. I was put on bed rest the last month due to high blood pressure and my weight was a factor.

Right now I am 203, (down from 236 at 9 months pregnant). I was around 165 when I originally got pregnant.

I did a 24 hour liquid juice fast over the weekend because I just felt "gross" and in a mental low, and must say, I have more energy and feel better just from that one day.

I am doing a low carb diet with a lot of grilled chicken and vegetables and fruits. I also plan to do a Zumba fitness class once a week for an hour.

I look forward to meeting many of you, posting, and reading.

Sounds like an excellent plan. But I am bias as I am all about low calorie/lower carb (not no carb, tho) and exercise. I find it sustainable, flexible and pretty simple.

Welcome to 3FC, pull up a chair and get comfy!

1/4/15: Restarting my journey exactly 4 years from when I first started in January 2011. Reached my goal weight in 2012 and regained half of it back.

I never should have left 3FC!
