Default not sure where i belong....

so i started out weighing 220 and im now 13 lbs from my goal of 135. when i post in other boards, i feel like im just not getting the support i used to.

has anyone else experienced this?

also, does being 13 lbs from goal make me a featherweight? lol

Im kindof a lurker so I dont really expect much support that way, but I think its awesome you only have thirteen more pounds to go! Keep up the great work! I'm sure some other people can help you more with the support issue, but I wish you the best!

I always interpreted this forum that way. When you are losing those last few pounds, you encounter unique challenges that most of us cant even imagine quite yet so it is nice to chat with others in a similar situation.

Congrats on your weight loss!!!

Wow! Congrats and welcome! It's awesome being able to relate to one another as we get closer to goal - I know my head is in a different place now than it was 40 lbs ago, and what worked for me then to lose weight doesn't necessarily work so well now.

you sound like a featherweight to me!!! I also post on the 20-something section, but i don't really get the support i need there....It is so hard to see everyone loosing weight so quickly, when you get down to the last 10-20 it is a much slower process.

anyways, WELCOME!!

I could have written this exact post! I am trying to find my place as I battle my last 10 pounds. I wrote a post in the 100 pound club (where I have been since I joined 3FC) and there has been little response...except to tll me to post to Maintainers. I posted in Maintainers and someone there pointed me here.

I don't feel like a "featherweight" as, this time last year I was well over 250 pounds, but I am having a hard time findng my place

Do I belong here too?
