Welcome. Since Chicks can be overwhelming at first, I suggest you look for a support group or challenge to join; a small group of friends to help keep you motivated. Find one you like that fits your needs, or inspires you, and just post to join.

I used to believe that the only way I myself would have the motivation to lose weight and get healthy was to rely on someone else. I would do it with my little brother, my family, my friends... and one of us would end up flaking out by the end of the week. ;) Either we just couldn't get up the nerve to actually go running or we really had no idea what we were doing, or never told our superiors what we were doing and ended up eating a bunch of crap that we THOUGHT was good for us. (that's what we got for thinking... :p )

I now realize that while I can encourage them... in the end... I have to just get out there and do it. If they choose to join me... great. If not... too bad. They'll just have to catch up later, or deal with their lot in life. We can't let others bring us down with them.

I've just joined this forum this week, and so far, they have been good at the support. Years ago I was very active on usenet in a diet group there, and made friends with folks that I still keep in touch with. Many I keep in touch with on facebook. But facebook isn't the environment for dealing with dieting struggles.

If you have an active group you can make lifetime friendships.

I'm also looking for friends who I can *talk* to regarding the day to day struggles of dieting. It played a huge role in how I lost my weight to begin with during the usenet days. I'm hoping that 3fc can doo that for me now.
