Thanks jiffypop. :) I will post here often, I just want to get to know some more people.

Heh... No need to remember back to being 17, I've got everything else covered except weight. Lol. Now that I need help with... I used to be pretty skinny and athletic, then came certain circumstances... and I found comfort in food. I'm turning 18 in June and moving to Canada. By then I'd like to be getting back to my old self again, I just need a little help doing it. :^:

Listen Babe....when I was your age I topped out at 475 ! I applaud you taking these steps to a better life now rather than waiting until you are much older as I have. I am 48 and thus far have lost 80lbs so I am well on my way but oh my dear girl if I can do it so can you!!!!!!!!! Welcome to the best support group on the web bar none.
