Well, my name is Melissa and I'm 27 years old. I currently weigh 304 lbs.

Ouch. That hurt. That's the first time I've ever written that down anywhere.

I have 3 kids, 4, almost 3, and 3 months. I've decided I'm gonna lose weight because I want to see them grow up.

I'm new to the forum and will be just lurking around for awhile to see where I fit in..but thought I should introduce myself first.

So... Hi!

Welcome. I'm here for the same reason, get healthy so I'm around for along time with my kiddies. I have an almost 3 year old and an 11 month old, so I know you're busy, but there is great support on here. Congrats on your decision to get healthy.

Welcome, Missyanne!

Glad you're here! It can be shocking to admit how much we weigh, but honestly this is the safest place in the world to do it. We understand.

Anyway, good for you for joining us!

Yeah, writing that number down can be hard. If I remember correctly, I only lurked here for quite a while because I didn't want to put the number in writing.

But you did it and that's a huge first step of the ones to follow on your road to success.

You've picked a great place to be.

Welcome, welcome, welcome! Your kids will definitely benefit from this decision, as will you. It's not easy, but there are lots of great parts to it, and it's so much easier when we're traveling together. It's great to have you here!

Welcome, this is a very inspirational place to come. Your body is still adjusting from the pregnancy so I'm sure you'll see results soon.

Welcome, and best to you.

I think accepting how far you have to go is a not-insignificant part of committing long-term.

I know how hard it can be because I was downright scared to weigh myself at first (scared just to admit my weight to myself!) I didn't, for the first few weeks. And then of course, I discovered that my "starting weight" was 25-30 lbs more than I'd guessed. But I was in it, then. The only thing that was different for me over the last year and a half was that I stayed in it.

Anyway! Hope to see keep seeing you around the 100 lb club!
