Hello everybody, I'm new to this site I found it randomly but as soon as I started to read all the success stories i was hooked. So here I am.

I am 20 years old and have being overweight all my life, being through alot but even though I was always ashamed of how I looked I never tried hard enough to change the way I felt. This time I will not stop until I achieve my goal!
I will not STOP!
I have already lost about 14 lbs and my goal is to get to 130 (right now 208)
this past weeks I have being struggling because I wasnt feeling really motivated until now, I really like this forum and the stories, they are amazing and I hope that one day, very soon I will also be sharing my success story.
this is a long journey but I know that Im going to win this battle.

:^) -Call me by my name, not by the way I look

Welcome! I think you'll find this site to be a great place for support, I certainly have. It's also a great way to stay motivated and keep yourself on track -- by watching other people's progress and posting your own (either your exercise, what you're eating, your weight, anything!).

Stick with it and good luck!

Glad you found this site!! I was hooked too, from the minute I started looking through all the success stories/pics. I find myself coming back day after day, especially when I am feeling discouraged or unmotivated. It snaps me right back!!!

Welcome, again!! :)

Hey, welcome to the club! :)

I'm also around the age of 19-20, and I hate the way my aunt and uncle would tease me about my weight. (since, I'm the fattest girl in the family) Thus, I'm working toward a goal of losing weight too!

I wish you luck! YOu'll find great help and encouragement here! :)

I can really relate to you! We're about the same age and have about the same amount to lose! The success stories are just great arent they?? I'm like you I've never been really motivated to do something until now. But it's time for change! Congrats on the weight loss already! Good luck on meeting your goal!!

Wow, there are a lot of younger people on here too! It's always nice to be able to relate to others doing stuff like this, I'm so excited!

I just turned 21, and just quit my job to focus on school full time.. logically I use up the last of my health insurance, and I find out I'm at 207!!?!? Holy crap.

I've always generally liked the way I looked, at least not too much to do anything about it for too long. I'm pushing 5'8, so I look pretty proportioned and hide my tummy well. But its summer time and I wanna not be so embarrassed of my thighs and knees! I wanna get into some cute shorts!! (hence the icon)

It's really hit me that we've got to do this thing while we're young and its easier.. and take advantage of our youth!!!

Let's do it girls!!!! And keep each other updated!

I've been the same...Everyone around me only likes to comment on my weight and how since high school I was skinny (binge dieting) and now am large. This site provides people that are god sent! I been looking for something like this, and love how it gives you the courage and emotional support you need to get going.
