Hi Victoria and welcome to the 100lb club!
I've just read your profile, and I'd like to say that I completely understand about being scared. I actually think that fear will be a really positive thing for you - it is a great motivator!
I gave up smoking 6 months ago because I was scared for my health - I was terrified of getting some horrible cancer and having to have my voicebox removed or something. The thing is, I used that fear as my motivation - i looked at loads of cancer websites and looked at statistics related to smoking and cancer - and guess what? I successfully gave up smoking on my first attempt! So I say embrace your fear! :)
It's a bit harder with dieting, as we can't quit food altogether - but it can be done! look at the successes on this forum - these people were scared too - and turned their fear into POSITIVE ACTION!
Sorry, I've gone off on one a bit!
stick with us and you'll be fine!
Love Amanda x
PS: Cute dog and username! What exactly happens at a 'pug party'? :lol:

Welcome. I'm new too though.
Cute dog. I wanna get a puppy my daughter loves dogs. She giggles when they come in and give her kisses. MIL has a dog but the dog won't come near her, they have her so spoiled.

I read your profile and I definitely understand. I didn't weigh myself for a long time, then a few years ago I did and saw the scale hit 364. I was scared and imagined myself creeping to 400, that is when I decided I needed to keep better track of my weight and start working on myself. Even though I am only 20 lbs below that point now, it is something that has kept me from gaining the weight back completely. I am restarting yet again, but I have never given up on myself. You can do it, we all can do it, it just may take some time.

I just decided to get on this site as a friend was telling me how supportive the people are. I really need that! I'm sure we all do at some point. I hope you continue to post! If you do, I will! There is some motivation! I find that I just don't get the support from my husband that I need and I can't afford the WW meetings right now. So, hope to hear from you soon! Oh, yeah, the dog is great!!! I love dogs!
