Hi Chrissy,
I'm new here too, but not the dieting world. Nice to meet you and welcome! BTW, I know exactly what you mean about feeling pretty hopeless but not wanting to give up! Keep hanging in there!

Never quit trying

Today is my first day starting my new life diet. I thought i was doing good, ..let me explain...for breakfast i had special k cereal 1 cup..120 calories, horizon orgainc 2% milk 120 calories..i added a handful of almonds and a banana( not sure what the calories were for the nuts and banana)..so i came on this site and ...i typed in my meal and...wham..i already had 519 calories..and i am only allowed 1553 cal a day!
Also i registered for fitday ..and from what i understand..it will take me 11 months to lose 85lbs....this is depressing to me!
