Hello, everyone...

My name is Jennifer and I'm about to start on my own weight loss journey. I happened to find the "3 Fat Chicks" site and read some of the posts, and realized this is what I need to get myself motivated and started down this difficult (but worth it!) journey.

I've tried to lose weight for the last ten years. I was a fat kid in school, a bigger fat kid in college, and finally started to get the weight off once I started working as a music teacher. Being laid off two years in a row just devastated me, though, and I put on all of the weight I'd lost and then some. Now, after a pretty depressing summer "vacation," I'm headed back to school to learn to be a court reporter. I'm also getting married (to another music teacher who also lost his job!), but we can't set a date until we're both a little more stable.

So, this is something I really want to do for myself. I want to be healthy -- and I know it's not about reaching a specific number on the scale or a dress-size. It's about living happy and being healthy, right? I'm so excited to get started......even though I'm also scared I'll fail and end up even bigger than I am now!

Thank you all for being here! I can't wait to get to know all of you!

Welcome! I know that feeling of being afraid you'll fail, but you CAN do this. One bite at a time, one meal at a time, one pound at a time. What is your plan to accomplish your goal?

Welcome. and congratulations on the insight that you don't have to aim for some magic number.
How do you plan to lose the weight?
