My name is Alana-
I'm close to 100 pounds to lose......may I still post here? I'm unsure about how this whole thing (posting) works so I hope I do things correctly.
I get a lot of motivation from others who have been successful, and I hope someday to return the favor to someone. And I already have a list of questions, so get ready for me. :D
I look forward to to chatting with you all!

Welcome, Alana! You are welcome to post here -- it's a VERY supportive group and I have learned so much and received so much inspiration since I started lurking a couple of months ago. And when I took the plunge and started posting, things got even better!

Thank you so much wyllenn!
And big up's to you and your weight loss. You have done very well in that amount of time. It encourages me to get up and do it too!

Hey Alana! :)

Of course you may post here!

It's funny because I asked the same thing when I joined because I had 95 pounds to lose :lol:

You will love it here...it's just a wonderful, supportive place to call home...definitely a family :grouphug:

Hello! :wel3fc: I've said it before and I'll say it again... It is SO nice to be seeing so many new "faces" on the board. Everyone here is very, VERY supportive in more ways than weight loss. So, post often! I look forward to getting to know ya!

WElcome Alana!! I love jazz too! And blues!

:welcome2: Alana. You are sure welcome here. We have a few on here who started out with around 70 or so to lose. I think any time you have more than 50 or so to lose it is sometimes harder to connect with those having say 10-15 to lose.

Hi Alana and welcome to the board :)

:welcome: to you, Alana! The people here are truly inspirational and have that unique perspective on what's it's like to have to drop large amounts of weight. I hope you decide to stick around.

Welcome, Alana! Looking forward to reading your questions, and helping answer if I can.

I went to a great jazz concert yesterday at the university in my town. Was wonderful!

Welcome! As everyone has already said this is a great group. Super supportive and interesting too. :cool:

Welcome to the forum! I look forward to seeing more posts from you!

My, my......thanks girls for being so welcoming! It is so encouraging to know that you all are so friendly and helpful. I'm a talker, so I'm sure I'll have a lot to "say" on here. ;)
And I'm so glad to know a few of you have a taste for jazz music as well. It puts me in the best mood to hear a good sax tune. :p
I look forward to getting to know you better, and making new friends. Thanks again for the delightful gretting!

:welcome: ALANA!

When I taught 4th grade, I had a student named Alana and she was just the cutest little doll - I have good feelings when I hear that name. :)

We like chatty people!! Glad you found us! :)

Well since you're already posting I guess it's too late to tell you no, so you can stay. Just kidding glad you could join us. This is a great group with a lot of great and inspiring people.
