Hi :wave:
I just wanted to stop by and say today marks one year since the beginning of my journey. I have lost 130lbs and look and feel a completely different person. I have faced my food demons head on and feel like I may win the war with food and my obesity. I have immense pride in my achievements and know that my plan works for me. I have had hiccups along the way, but they have all been emotional ones. There have been really hard times where I have wanted to give up, but I haven't.
I followed a low carb diet, allowing for a glass or two of wine each day (my vice, and the one thing I couldn't give up :D) I have begun each day with oats ( as suggested by Dukan), eaten protein and veggies for lunch and dinner, and drunk so much water that I have felt like a camel :rofl:
I have just begun to exercise with a personal trainer, to help with the last 14 lbs and to help tone.
The biggest inspiration, and form of accountability has been coming here each day and logging my daily weight. That has stopped me so many times from breaking my plan, or from having a binge. People have been awesome support and have helped me understand my feelings, and those of people around me throughout this process.
:grouphug: Thank you so much for helping me become this new, slim person, who can run, do press ups and wears a size 8 dress :D

Sophiyya - I had no plan for exercise. I felt I would need a magic wand at the end, so left the exercise til last week . i now do 2 personal training sessions per week to help tone and attack the last 14 lbs.

WOW!

First, what an amazing thing! One year of your life is ALL IT TOOK to turn it completely around. That's really nothing in the grand scheme of things. You should be totally proud how far you've come in such a short time and I know it makes me realize how just a "short" commitment can make a world of difference.

Second, the fact that you've done this without an exercise regiment is fantastic! Although I am an absolute believer in exercise, I think that food reform should always be first! When people say that obesity happens because people "don't get off the couch," I laugh because I am a fitness fanatic and still remain obese. So kudos to you for showing that concentrating on one area of your life and improving it worked for you.

So amazing Starbrite! I am also at the beginning of my journey and while you have found others inspiring to your efforts, I have found you inspiring to mine.

I've tried different things but always had a hard time relating/connecting to the group. With 3FC, it has helped so much to find others in a similar boat as me. Similar starting weight, similar end goals (Starbrite, ubergirl, Trazey34, ilbney). While each of us are different and may have different food issues, different successes and setbacks along the way - it is immensely to KNOW that others out there, in situations similar to mine, have made it to their goals.

Thank you Starbrite, and everyone else for being you!

I believe everything is possible, and that we have to push through the difficult times. I have spent the majority of my life grossly overweight and very unhappy because of it. I am only just beginning to realise that it truly does take strength, determination and a very strong character to lose a large amount of weight. It also takes a great deal of self belief, which is conflictual because many overweight people have very low self esteem. It's a fight, a battle with the food, yourself, and those who enable you. Stay strong, believe in whatever plan you decide on, because to be sure it has to suit you and your lifestyle, otherwise it will NEVER work. Good luck xx
