Good Morning everyone!

I wanted to real quick write a post. I'm new here, and i have 118lbs until my goal. I'm already down 28 lbs since Feb 1, so I'm getting there, slowly but surely!

My name is Stacey, and I live in Atlanta, Ga. I'm 25, and I work for a large freight/shipping company in Revenue Management.

I've recently started weight training with a co-worker 4 days a week (it's oh so much more fun when you have a hot boy that you trust push your limits), and I try to do cardio at least 5 times a week. I've kind of been falling behind on that, so my goal for this week is to actually get it done.

I'm on a low-calorie, low fat, lower in carb, high protien, partially liquid diet. It's similiar to doing slimfast or optifast, but lower in sugar than slimfast, and i'm not doing all liquid like most people do on optifast.

Well, I just wanted to say Hi and let you all know that I've been lurking around a little bit, and think that this is a great group!

Stacey :dizzy:

Thank you all for the warm welcome! It's so easy to see why this group has so much great support.

I'm still trying to get used to the dynamics of the board -- this is one of the first message boards like this I've been involved with. So any pointers would be great!! :)

Hi Stacey, welcome to 3FC and the 100 lb. club. This most certainly IS a phenomenal place. As for pointers, just read away and post away and ask anything at all. You'll get the hang of it. We're an easy bunch. Congratulations on your success so far and continued good luck to you as you head towards your goals. Looking forward to getting to know you.

:welcome: you are going to love it here. Just click on the links that interest you and see where they take you. I recomend the "one reason I'm staying on plan today" and "March NSV" as great places to start, I find them really inspirational.

:wel3fc: I am so glad that you found us. This really is a great place for help and support. I'd also suggest that you take a peek at the Newbies thread stickied up at the top. That should help get you statred.

Look forward to hearing more from you!
