Wow ! I think I have found a place to land...you are all soooo supportive of each other...no snide remarks, etc....I have been lurking here and also another board, but was nervous to post as the other board can be very critical....I think I will stick around awhile !! ;)

You will find this to be the best message board out there!!!!!! I too left a message board (not on this site)...where the people were snide, catty, and just downright rude most of the time. I have never, ever experienced that here.....everyone is there for each other...in good times and bad. Welcome...:)

Hi! I am "new" here in the fact that I haven't been on this site in about 7 years. Ironically, that was the last time I had any serious weight loss! I know these boards really work for encouragement! I feel like I need all the "help" I can get!
I have posted on a few other threads, tried to find a buddy in the WW 100lb forum, but it seems like that forum is pretty quiet.
I have found so much inspiration readiing the posts of people who have lost 50 and 100 pounds. It just makes me realize that this is NOT impossible. Real people are doing it- and I can, too!

Yup...not a bad word ;)
There is amazing amounts of love here...something you just can't find anywhere else.

Welcome you two!! Yup! These boards are great. Everyone is so supportive and it helps that the 100 lb club is pretty busy so you usually get some kind of response. Feel free to jump right in on any of the threads! :)

I agree with you, this is very supportive. I have looked into other sites but did not feel comfortable posting on them. I love the fact that there is a group for people like me, that have over 100 to loose. I joined WW in Jan and have lost 75 lbs to date so am on the way but have a lot more to go. I am looking forward to visiting this group often. By the way, how do you create those graph bars? I love them that is really neat.

Welcome to the board!!

Thank you for the welcomes (even though I didn't start the thread;) ).
I love reading all the great stories and words of encouragement!
It is great to see women really supporting each other instead of tearing each other down. When I see the stories from those having health issues or relationship conflicts, it reminds me that I am lucky in some aspects. Now, I don't know if many people would consider NOT being in a relationship as being "lucky", but I think sometimes those significant others complicate the process. I swear my ex-husband used to sabotage me when I was trying to lose weight. And he didn't have a weight problem- so why did he want to keep me fat? Doesn't matter, now!
I guess what I am trying to say, is that the biggest struggle I am facing right now is this one with MYSELF. And, I should just be happy for that. Because, I know this opponent- and there is no way she is going to beat me!
I am putting it down right here, right now, I am doing this and I will not back down!!

Welcome this is a wonderful board the ppl here encouraged/supported and inspired me. Without their help I know I wouldn't have lost 40 lbs. I look forward to helping you reach your goal.
