Hello all. I am new here and just want to introduce myself. My name is Miadill and I have been struggling with my weight now for 5 yrs. I am currently 190lbs and want to reach 135lbs. I'm glad I found this site because it is hard to talk about the things I go through with friends and family because none of them suffer from obesity. I am really looking forward to conversing with you all and am here for anyone.

Hello! :wave:

miadill, I would like to welcome you to this site. I feel the same way. I started W.W. six weeks ago. When I did, I didn't tell any one in my family or my friends. I've started so many times that when I fail I am ashamed. But I have been doing good this time around. I have lost 15.4 pounds in six weeks. I have received a lot of support on line. I think that has made a difference. I started at 334.8 pounds, and now I am 319.4...I just want to get to 200 pounds. I set mini goals for my self. I take it 10 pounds at a time. It doesn't look so bad then.

I think that you'll do GREAT. There is a lot of support here, and a lot of wonderful people. Together we are :strong: I wish you good luck. You can do it. :)

Take care, and "God Bless." Cathy

hi miadill and welcome!

folks here are very supportive and helpful. i understand about not talking too much about a weight loss program with friends. i had been waiting 'til i was sure how i would do. i've been on ww for 6 weeks. i am a slow loser, but i am losing and that's what counts. i've found people to be very encouraging and have learned a lot of good tips on food plans, how to keep going, etc. i wish you all the best on your weight loss journey. take care.
