Hi everyone.. I was reading the forums and looking for a fun and motivated group. Your posts made me smile and even laugh out loud. I also read your list of 100 lb. losers. WoW!! How encouraging is that:carrot: :carrot: So I would love to join this 100lb group. I currently weigh 252 lbs. I am a retired nurse. I am a 3x cancer survivor. I am ashamed that I was victorious in that battle and continue to lose my "Battle of the Bulge" This is a great day to start over. I look forward to getting to know you. Lets have a really great day.. Lori

Hi Lori - welcome to 3fc! It is a great place for inspiration and motivation (especially this room!!) You have been in some tough battles, I am sure you have it in you to win this one!!:carrot:

This is a great place to support you in your new plan. My favorite thing is coming each day and posting why I want to stay on plan each day. It really helps me remember why this is so important to me.
BTW I was an adult ICU nurse for 10 years. I went out when I was 22w pregnant with my twins almost 10 years ago. Glad to have you here!

Welcome...you found a great place :)

Thank you ladies.. I feel at home here already. Is there a regular weigh in day? I think the daily post on why we want to stay on the plan is brilliant. I tend to growl at my scale daily and only jump on it once or twice a month. I knew this would be lovely group.

Hi Lori and welcome to 3fc and the 100lb club. We all have our own weigh-in days, mine being Mondays, kinda helps keep me on track through the difficult weekend. We ususally post it a weekly thread called Weekly Weigh-In. Give yourself some time, look around - you'll definitely get the hang of it.
You certainly are a strong woman having gone through what you have. How inspiring you are!!! Good luck with your weightloss journey. Glad that you are here and I look forward to getting to know you.
