So I am new in this weight loss thingy, well not really new, but this time I mean it really seriously.

Well I would be really happy, if I could join your 100lb club, if u guys dont mind.

First I would like to say, I was born in europe, so excuse some of my english :-) I come here in USA because of marriage 2 years ago. We have with my hubby 16 months old baby boy :-) I love them both so much, so I would like to be healthy for them.

I still dont know, where in this forum I could belong?...

Today is my big day. I have big troubles with yoyo efect. So I will just start slowly. My goal for this week (starting today) is drink at least 6 x 8 oz glasses of water.

Well as u can see, I have over 100lbs to lose and I would be happy to be in contact with somebody, who have same problem :-)

Well, me too I'm in the 100 Club! :) And I am new also and trying to find my place in here...:)
I've been wondering what are the "blue team", "black team"?

Welcome Lindunka!

I know what you mean about the yo-yo thing. My weight has ranged from 120-250 pounds. I think a big part of things is not getting into an all or nothing mindset, which I have a tendency to do with both food & exercise. For example, I used to feel if I couldn't do the 45 mins of cardio plus weight training workout I had planned, why bother? And then weeks, sometimes months would go by before I exercised. Now, I tell myself, "consistency is key" (forgot who said that) & figure a consistent 30 mins of cardio is better than nothing. It's all about keeping the habits.

Hi there! I could have written your post myself. I sent you a PM with my email address in case you'd like to support each other. Either way, good luck on your journey!

Hi Vek: "Blue Team" and "Black Team" refer to The Biggest Loser Challenge in the exercise thread....:)

Hi there! I'm new too - this place seems like a great community, though!

Can I ask where abouts in Europe you're from, originally? Your name makes me think maybe Central or Eastern Europe?

Hi, Vek! (Oh, I'm a pretty multipurpose SF geek, really - Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Star Gate Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica, Heroes - pretty much all SciFi or fantasy books and shows and movies. It's my crack cocaine!)
