welcome to our little group. we are a group of people who check-in almost daily to support each other on our journeys to weight loss. we are friendly,genuine people who's purpose is to be there for each other and all are always welcome!
I have been coming here for a few weeks and I read and occasionally post a remark or so. I would like to participate in an almost every day exchange of supportive caring. I know it is a matter of fit, some do and some do not with any group. So here is hoping I shall fit and become a part of your group.
I have a very long road ahead of me in weight losing terms. I have lost 20 lbs and am hovering at that point...up one down two up one down one ...etc. I have increased my exercising: I do weights mwf and toning tthsatsun and try for a cardio walk a day along with stretching of course. My diet is calorie counting; and now fiber counting for elevated tryglycerides. The hard part has been to cut out sugar totally for the tryglycerides. I like sugar in my morning tea. So I am cutting down both on the sugar in each cup and then tea only every other day. The fiber counting had bee hard, only because I am finding it difficult to find the fiber count of some things. All my diet books are pre-fiber-is -important; and online I have checked 36 sites and they each have a few items but not a nice list.
Well that is where I am . I need some support as my family and friends are too self-involveds and bored with my fretting over calories or fiber or whatever. I guess I also need a spot to vent frustrations.
Hi There Wannabe!! hope you enjoy the group!! I think everybody that has posted with us has fit right in nicely,so there is no concern there!I am in the same boat as you as far as the yo-yo effect! I go up 2-3lbs. then I'm down again after a few days,without a change in dietary habits,maybe its water retention!
Along with the diet and exercise advice we tend to chat about our daily lives on this post, and have gotten to know each other well,and I look forward to getting to know you!
Hi Diane!Thanks for starting the new thread!
Hi Kelli and Courtney~where ever you are!!
hey all, I had a good week last week. We had a HUGE party to goto last night and I got to see so many people that I havnt seen since March (when I was at my heaviest) and they were soooo surprised..although no one said anything to me, I saw lots of them look at me like they couldnt believe it was me..lol Made me smile!
I am a 30 yo, mother of 2 girls( that drive me insane), I live in Australia, I don't currently work, but am looking into a career change.!
I love the 3FC site, it really keeps me on track having to tell people how i am doing! (or not doing! LOL).
I have been trying to get into running (only done 2 sessions thus far) but I can see an improvement already , first time i had to do 1 min run, 1 min walk!, the second time i did 5 min run, 1 min walk. But I plan to be able to run 7 km (4.3 mile) about twice a week, on top of all the other stuff I do (walking, weights, kayaking.... )
I don't follow any diet plan, just kinda keep my cals under 1800, try to drink as much water as I can, and try to love myself a little more (which is probably the hardest!)
Looking forward to getting to know you all a little more!

((((( ))) guys im off 2 bed ttfn
hey all!!!!!!! welcome gonna and icedragon!!!!!!!!!!!! sorry about ur back wendy, i screwed up my back on sat at work. i was lifting a golden onto my table by myself. cuz i think im super woman! and then, i felt my sciatica go into full drive. i hope you feel better. where the heck is kelli? i hope shes ok. andrea, sorry about not getting back to emails. i rarely check them and when i do its in a glance. i rarely reply. cuz i suck. lol im the same way with my phone. people hate it.
so im easing my way back into my diet after a slight departure. i keep trying to drift back to my old ways. but then i catch myself. it soo crazy what 2 days of undieting can do to me. its like trying the clothes on but not buying em. or wait wait. its like buying the clothes, wearing them for the weekend then returning them. thats it. lol so i havent lost a significant amount of weight in a long time. and i know what it is im just being lazy. im doing the same thing i have been for months. and now my body is used to it. i need to change things up. i need my motivation back. it'll come back soon. with a little help from my girlies. <3
breakfast treat: whole wheat waffle toasted with reduced fat peanut butter. its soooooooo good. i need my sweets in the morning. the peanut butter melts and its like heaven.
Hey girls! I MISSED YOU! I hate to be a big poop ... but I had a really bad & unmotivational week ... though when I got on the scale Saturday, instead of being mad for not losing anything, I was grateful I didn't gain. I won't go into my terrible cheating ways, but let me tell you, that scale should've been saying DAMN GIRL YOU CHEATER but it stayed ... LOL Anyway, I'm back on track & tomorrow I'm back to my ways of health & exercise so no more MIA for me ...
Sorry I haven't been my regular self, I felt lost without y'all but I have to tell you, I've been so damn stressed out I don't even know what to do with myself! I've been looking for another job and in my spare time being a really big ***** and snapping at everyone who talks to me and yeah, I've been pleasant! LOL Though, for now I'm in better spirits, I surely hope going to work tomorrow doesn't change my mind and make me ANGRY again, I swear I am getting in trouble everyday now that my cousins want me fired for whatever reason. I still don't know and I can't get in their heads & figure them out so I need to stay positive and keep applying for new jobs! Which is what I did today. Whew.
Enough complaining ... WELCOME all newbies! You will be seeing a lot more of me from now on
Hey Andrea, thanks for missing me! Hi Wendy & Jen ... you guys missed me too and I'm grateful LOL I would've felt bad if no one missed me so yay! You girls are sweeties! I will be back tomorrow ... scout's honor!
