Hi, I'm new here. I just wanted to say that I love the 3FC website and def. find it to be a great source for losing weight. Ive been on a diet since late July infact, I had dieted before but ended up giving up.. but this time im keeping with it until I reach my goal. Ive been dieting since July, im trying to shrink my stomach so I eat less. Currently Im 209 and 5'9" and just.. unhappy.. my goal is to be 130-135.. even 140.. Im just tired of being this way. Im only 20 years old.. and used to be a thin child but somewhere along the way I gained a lot of weight and never took it off. But now I want to.. im tired of not fitting into the clothing i want to fit into... and im tired of carrying around this extra weight. i know I have a long way to go.. (roughly 70lbs.....im so upset i let it go that far.....)
i think ive lost some weight, my scale was somewhat broken.. the first few weeks of the diet and i had to buy a new one. I started at around 215.. and Im now around 209-210. Ive been eating maybe once-2wice a day and trying to eat sensibly. I havent tried the low carb diet yet but ill do almost anything to get the weight off. I work out almost every day. I do an hour on the walker.. (its like a walker only it exercises both ur arms and legs) and sometimes ill do an hour on the bike or a 30min Tae Bo video that I have.
But I have been staying away from soda and sweets.. and fried foods as well. there have been a few times i slipped up with the sweets (cookies, brownies) because i was at a BBQ etc.. im sure some of u know how that goes! and ive been staying away from all fast food, and french fries (instead ofgetting them as a side etc.. i ask for salad.. and sometimes my bf gets them and ill have a few... ) so hopefully i can reach my goal weight with all of this.... im trying really hard....
thanks for listening, its nice to know theres a place to go where im not judged and im sure many of you are going through or have gone through what i am right now.. anyway thanks for taking the time to read this.. and good luck!!
