S/C/G: 280/271/200

Height: 5'3"

Default new here

So i'm new to this forum, but i've been on other forums before.i'm joining because i just need the support to lose the weight. i'm just not sure i can do it on my own. i know the whole diet and exercise thing. i've been there. i probably have more information about dieting and exercise than i can handle but i just lack motivation. i guess i just need to be held accountable. i would really appreciate the support. i sure do need it. anyways.
as i said i'm new here. i'm 23. my current weight is 271 that could be a couple pounds off because i weighed myself on the wii fit cuz i dont have a scale. my ultimate goal weight is to be 125. but for now my goal weight is 200. i want to try to make small goals so i dont feel overwhelmed. my height is 5'3". i've been overweight since i was 15. heres where i might get criticized i had a baby at a very young age. at the age of 15. no he wasnt planned but i dont believe in abortion and i dont think i could live with myself if i would have aborted him. but after i had him i developed pcos i gained probably 50 pounds from what i was before i got pregnant and then after that it just kept piling on it didnt matter how much i tried to keep it from happening it just did. and part of why i think i gained it is because i was depressed. i had a kid at 15 the babys father played with my emotions and cheated on me so i basically sat aroudn and ate all day. most of the weight came on when i got married though. i guess i just got comfortable. i weighed 220 when i got married by the first year i was 250 then i got pregnant with my second child and i developed gall stones, after my second child was born i went down to 230 then i guess i got cocky and gained all the weight back and now i'm at 271 my highest i think was 285.
well i'm sorry for rambling. i just wanted to introduce myself. thanks for reading.

KeW, welcome, glad to have you join us. I suggest you look for a Challenge or Support group to join; small check-in groups make it easier to connect, get involved, and be accountable. We have groups centering around specific diet plans, themes, or age groups, so find one that inspires you and just post to join! Be sure to check out the 20-somethings.

Welcome to the forum! So glad you joined us!
Do you know what food plan you are going to follow? There is a ton of information about many different food plans on this site. Pick a plan that fits in your lifestyle and you can follow long term. I chose calorie counting because it is free and flexible. It allows me to eat almost anything I wanted as long as it fits within my calorie range for the day and there are ton of free apps out there to help you track your food.
Give up the sugary drinks and drink lots and lots of water.
Incorporate some exercise into your weekly routine. You do not have to join an expensive gym try to walk more, use the stairs more, download videos off of YouTube or Hulu.com to work out to. There are a lot of things you can to do with spending a ton of money.
Lastly, if you have a bad meal, a bad day, heck, a bad food week. Do NOT let this be a reason to throw in the towel. Get back on track at the next meal. You can do this!!!
Best of luck to you!
