I personally used my search engine for "weight loss message boards" and it was one of the many results found. But it was the only one I linked to. I thought any place with a name like that has got to be for me! This was before the administrators were with the current server, back in 1997. I signed on as "Peggy" over there, and then followed them to the new server in August of 1999. I was part of the Featherweights group over in Support and when we changed the name to the Jaded Ladies, the administrators graciously said "yes" to giving us our own little corner of 3fatchicks.
Before finding this place, I even tried a fat acceptance site, thinking I'd never be able to lose so much weight, but that didn't last long. I knew I wanted to be with a group that promoted health, no matter how long it took me to lose weight.
Want to share how you find this web site, and in particular, the Jaded Ladies? However you did it, I'm sure glad you'e here!!
