Angry New Here

Hello, my name is Kari and I am new here to 3FC. I was searching for a site with a message forum where I would be able to chat with others, while giving, and getting support through out my weight loss journey.

To tell you a little about me, I am 20 years old from the Detroit, Michigan area. I currently weigh 300 lbs and will soon be starting a weight loss program near my home at The Medical Weight Loss Clinic. I am very excited to start. I used this program once when I was about 14 years old. I had lost 40 lbs - but lost interest in the program because I wanted to hang out with friends more. I now have a lot of free time on my hands, and too much weight on my body. I know I need to do something about this. Not only is this weight a strain on my body, but it also puts a strain my my relationships with family, friends, my my boyfriend of almost five years.

I am very motivated, and cannot wait to begin this journey. I hope to make many great friends here, and also help support them in their journeys.

Thanks for reading,

"If I accept the sunshine & warmth, then I must also accept the thunder and lightening."

Starting Weight on 4/7/03 = 304 lbs

Current Weight = 266 lbs

Goal Weight for September 17th, 2003 = 244 lbs (22 lbs to Go)

Main Goal = 200 lbs (66 more lbs to final goal!)

Hi Kari: What a beautiful young woman you are!!! Welcome to 3FC's! You will just love it here. It's a great place for inspiration and motivation.

I'm also from the Detroit area, am married and have two sons that are 21 and 23.

I post regularly on a thread, here under support, called "300+ And Ready To Try Again". You are more than welcome to join us.

We're an eclectic group of all different ages and we follow many different eatting plans. One of our little 'chickies' has just lost 135#'s and is a real inspiration.

We share recipes, tips and helpful hints. I hope you'll think about joining us.

Once again, welcome to the boards.

God Bless America!

Hi Kari, and welcome! You have come to a great place for support, sharing and encouragement. I'm on the opposite coast... in wonderful Seattle!

Let me invite you to join several of us in a thread called "April Exercise Challenge" -- it is in the "General Diet Plans" section. We each set our own goal for the month and then report in on our progress. It's a great way to stay motivated and accountable.
