Default Long time lurker, first time poster

Hello all! I just wanted to stop in and introduce myself after lurking these boards for the last few years.

I have always been a little overweight but over the last 5 years I have gained an incredible amount of weight and by October of 2009 I found myself sitting at 236 lbs. I might want to add that I am just barely 5 feet tall. So during October and November I slowly spent time re-evaluating my life, what I ate, what I didn't eat and what I could do without. Then in December I finally decided to change my life for good. As of today I am at 213.2 and feeling better every day. I am in the best mindset right now and I know that I can finally do this.

I would love to have some new friends to share this experience with!

Welcome and congrats on your weight loss so far!

I have been at it since January 5th and am down (almost) 25 lbs. I (finally) share your mindset that I CAN do this and I have no intention of stopping. I love the support I get here on 3FC and I'm sure you will too!

Hey there, glad to finally "meet" you. I'm glad you stepped out of lurker mode.

You're off to a great start! I find this place to be all the motivation I need to just keep going. It's especially helpful when times get tough.

welcome and great job and your loss so far!

It's amazing what we can do when we put our minds to it. I just joined the board myself and so far, I find it to be very motivating. Everyone is just great!!
