Red face 23 and determined to make a change NOW!!!

Hi everyone, My name is Kristine, I am 23 and it is time for a change NOW!!! I have been the fat girl all my life. Now I want to be able to look in the mirror and appreciate what I see. I need to lose this weight for me and for my health. It scares me when I go to the doctor for one thing and all the doctor can do is talk about my weight. I knew for a long time I needed to make a change and I prayed to God for some kind of help. Finally, he sent me my friend who has the same problem as me. He sent her to support and motivate me, which is exactly what I needed. I am also here to push and encourage her to go that extra mile when times get hard and she feels weak. (Now we both have no excuses) We just joined the gym and are starting a healthy diet tomorrow. This is it, my time is now, I feel like "06" is the year for change and new beginnings. So, I encourage and support all of you in your weight lose goals and I hope you do the same for us. This is our year everyone!!!

Good luck - just please don't forget to plan for what you're going to do when you've reached your goal weight. As a former dieter who always gained weight back, I was never successful long term until I planned for maintenance. Losing weight is hard, keeping it off is harder.
SIX YEARS at maintenance weight!

Red face Thank you!!!

Thank you all for those encouraging words and support. We started the gym today and I must say the first day was a little hard, but my determination is still there. I hope everyone had a great day today and thanks again for all your support!!!

Hi Kristine,

Welcome to the board. I, too, am a newbie. I am also 23 and have decided to make a change. I know exactly how you feel. I will agree with everyone else, it is so important to have support around you, and with a group of wonderful women such as the ones on this forum, we'll all succeed.

Take care and best of luck to you.

Welcome to the board and to this wonderful experience. I too have a lot to loose, but knowing that I have people who know exactly how I feel around me encouraging me and doing it with me help me so much. Good luck!

Short term goal to get under 200. Look out Onderland here I come!

Howdy Determined Me!

Welcome to the board (I'm 23 too!) I've been a heavy person all my life (well apart from maybe last year) but it IS possible to change, it IS doable. Easy? No. Nothing worth having is. Just remember, when you feel like flagging and it feels hard, THERE IS NO EASY WAY.

And if that's depressing, then just think of the satisfaction when you DO go out and exercise and when you DO eat well. It's not just the numbers on the scale or the clothes sizes, it's the internal changes that are the best ones.

Good luck :
