I joined 3FC yesterday. I have been doing WW since Labor day and have lost 11 lbs so far! Yahoo. I am really looking forward to making some new friends and staying motivated. I have struggled with my weight most of my life and I am tired of being fat!
Have a great day!

Keep up the good work! Congratulations - this is a good group. I have loved reading some of the older treads and just poking around looking for everything from motivation to reciepes.

Hi Onmyway,

:welcome2: I am new here as well. I am finding that reading on here is very helpful in encouraging me to make changes. I hope you will find inspiration here as well!

Hi onmyway and joybells! I get so much inspiration here. When I am feeling down I go to look at Goal (or mini goal) albums, and that lifts my spirits and helps me stay on track. I got so tired of my weight going up and down (mostly up!) and I don't know what happened but I just woke up one morning in August totally sick of myself. I can hardly believe I've lost over 20 lbs since then. I am ready to go out and buy some new clothes. No more frumpy mama, LOL.

Ooo sorry, this is all about me :o

Thanks for the replies. This website is great. I have gotten lots of good ideas and I love seeing how well others are doing. It makes me believe I can do it too!
