About this forum
 
The new Support Group forum will house any permanent or temporary group-type threads. We've seen a lot of support group threads created in the Buddy Up and Support forums, and this has pushed back the newbie intro posts or the regular requests for support. Each of these types of threads are equally wonderful, and deserve their own forums. The new forum will hold any threads that have evolved into mini group-support threads. I hope that doesn't sound too confusing :) We hope that spreading the threads out into an extra forum will allow a better response to each type of post, in their respective forums.

Hi Suzanne - I am having a hard time since the crash finding a support group that suits my needs. I like 21 day but days go by with no one posting now. The Week-At-A-Time worked for me too. I like focussed groups - working on specific goals for a week, month, etc. What is involved with me starting my own thread?

Cat,
Click on the New Thread button and set up your own thread. There is nothing to it, dead easy. Give it a good name and you're sure to get some support.

Good luck

I'm new and have many questions
 
Hi all, I'm new here and would love it if anyone has the answers to some of my questions. I recently lost 52 pounds and had 34 to go. Almost 8 weeks ago I decided to quit smoking and needless to say some of the weight has come back on. To top it off, I have fibromyalgia and exercising lately has been rough. (I need to add that I have NEVER let my fibro get in the way of anything, I actually think I injured myself) So, here's my question, has anyone out there every quit smoking and kept their weight off, if so, how? Also, are there any fibro people out there by any chance? I don't want to go back to smoking but I have to say that I busted my butt trying to lose the 52 and I don't want to go back there. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you so much. Kerry :?:

Smoking and weight
 
Hi Kerry and welcome to the 3FC website. I don't know much about fibro but I'll bet there are plenty here that do. Have you looked further down the list of groups to see if there is any fibromyalgia stuff down there. Could be under Dieting with Medical conditions Thread.

The following is some information I found in our local Sunday paper lift out called Body and Soul. It listed 12 common mistakes people make when trying to lose weight. This is one of them. You may not be able to increase the activity level that much as it seems like you are already working out, but have a read and see if this might fit the bill.

12. smoking instead of eating

Despite the huge health benefits of quitting, many smokers worry about gaining weight when they stop. Some studies have shown that smoking cigarettes increases metabolic rate and recent non-smokers do report an increase in appetite once they quit, but the health risks outweigh the perceived benefits. When you quit, increase your activity level to burn off extra kilojoules and tackle the need for oral satisfaction by chewing on fruit or raw veges when you feel a craving coming on.

Hi
 
I'm new to this forum and don't see a thread for a Retired weight support group . Is there one, where people our age find support in weight & other matters. Thanks. Hugs ")BB

Back again !!!
 
Hi All -
I am a lifetime member who has fallen off the wagon. It would be great to be able to share the good times along with the difficult times of weight watching. I am looking to loose 30 pounds by October. I'm turning the big 40 and wish to begin a new decade slim and trim. ;) You would think being the mom of 2 busys boys would keep the weight off - no such luck.
Take Care,
Cindy

Hi, Kerry, congratulations on your decision to quit smoking, this is the best thing you can do for your health. If you have lost 52 #s in the past, you can do it again if necessary. I lost a couple of good quits because I gained weight. I have now been quit almost 2 years and I feel great! I am still packing around 30 of my 40 quit pounds and am here looking for help with the weight.
Susan

I can't find the Week at a time thread - did it disappear? Can I start a new one?

Hello Suzanne.

I didn't even realize that you had moved our thread to this forum (I usually link through the subscribed threads feature).

Sorry if this is late...but thanks for moving our thread to this group (I need accountability...blah blah blah). It's nice to have a more permanent little home!

Anyone else wish to join us in our thread....we welcome you!

I was 198 7 years ago and went on low carb way of life, which was very good for me and I lost on and off over 40 pounds, I have been keeping it ok . but had some work done on my feet in Nov last year. any way could not walk for over 2 months, still having a hard time with it. before I did a lot of walking, swimming, and had 3 classes a week, so since Nov, not doing any thing ,and I have put back on 8 pounds. now at 160 which I am having a real hard time to take off. this Monday I thought that I would try WW, and do the point thing. any way I am just doing it at home , was looking for some help with it ,if I am at the right place here, can any one tell me where I could get some help with getting to know my points better, I am 58 this year and would like to eat more fruit and some other foods , with low carb, I do eat a lot of food, but getting a bit fed up with the low carb way, thank you so much for your help Jackie o

Hey Jackie

I'm pretty sure there is a a whole group of threads dedicated to WW. There should be all the support you need right there! Otherwise, keep looking around and posting - someone will always reply

Hi folks, if you look at your name over there <<< in the grey box, you'll see that your name is underlined ... click on it. You should be able to chose from a drop down menu "Find more posts by ???" if you click on that, you'll find every post you've ever made.
Hope that helps you.

Suzanne,

Is there a 40 Something thread that I'm not finding? If not, sounds like I can just create one, right?

Thanks!
