Default How did you find 3FC?

I remember sometime last october or before, I was doing a health and fitness related google search on something, and one of the first things to pop up was the link to a 3FC.com thread related to what I was searching for. Thus, I discovered this wonderful site.

Did someone tell you about it? Did you stumble across it like me?

I was searching for something on Google and stumbled upon it accidentally. I believe I just lurked the site for a while before actually joining. Thank heavens I did though

Yep! I stumbled here looking, I think, for some exercise information, then lurked for almost a YEAR before actually posting anything.

I found it a couple of years ago by accident...I lurked for a while under another name (have no idea what it was lol) but then I stopped coming because I stopped being on a diet. I came back when I decided this was an awesome support system that I should have never left!

I stumbled across it while looking for weight loss/exercise sites back in August. I think I started posting on day one...cause I'm just a BIT extroverted. However, I couldn't figure out the whole introduction process so I never actually introduced myself...I just started blathering away on some thread -- which I killed. Did it again on another thread -- which I killed. You could have heard the crickets chirping! You'd think I would have learned, but I'm still here...blathering away!

I also stumbled upon this site when I googled exercises. And I clicked on the link because I thought the name of the website was catchy

Found it through a Google search for a review on an exercise DVD I was considering buying. I was so impressed, that I signed up that very day.

What a blessing it has been!

I can't remember how I found it, but I must have found it twice. Last year when I "found" it and tried to set up my ID, I discovered I'd already created it in 2007.

I found it when I was researching Nutrisystem. Which I ended up going on, and absolutely hating. Didn't start losing until I quit dieting and just cut back on calories and booze.

Mazza I was just thinking about that the other day...
I found it on a diet book... I think "Win The Sugar War" or something like that...
And I am here almost every single day since then.

My story is a bit different, I stumbled across this site 6 months after the fact of losing my weight. I think I googled weightloss maintenance and up popped 3 fat chickies. I liked what I saw, so I registered that day and I have been here on and off reading when I have the time and I try and give and get support when needed. I think out of all the forums I came across, this one has quite an edge over all the others! Thanks 3 fat chicks for putting this big congregation together.
Cheers to all of us chickies and to all of the chickens that are still a lurking..... join in and become a chicklet!

I remember reading 3FC back in 1999-2000 or so when the 3 sisters were posting about their journeys. It's grown a bit since then!! I'm sure I found it googling for weight loss or some such.
