I remember when I weighed myself at the start of July and was so completely surprised to see that I weighed as much as I did, because I had completely convinced myself I was still in the 230s, or maybe even less than that. I lurked here for a bit and then eventually joined. I have a supportive family but they don't quite get everything I do, so I was happy to settle in here as well.
And that aside... welcome! This place pretty much has something for everyone, you're going to love it!
