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!
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!
