Smile Another Newbie

Hey 3FC.. Just wanting to introduce myself and say hello all

I'm Jay and I am starting the Fat Smash Diet on Sunday (3/15). For the first time, I am actually going to stick to it (keeping fingers crossed). I have convinced a girlfriend of mine to start with me, but so far its just me..
My ultimate weight loss goal is just to be healthy (currently 280 lbs). I dont have a specific weight goal, but if I had to put one, I would say 175-200. My short term goal is to lose 5-10lbs by mid April/May. Im sure with some support this is possible.
Well, wont be too long winded, look forward to hearing from you all..

Jay

Hi Jay!



There's a Fat Smash Diet area under Diet Central that you should check out. You CAN stick to this! You CAN do this! We're a forum full of "weight-loss buddies" all here to help support eachother. It's great to have a friend help out, but if she happens to give it up, don't you follow that path, too.

Best of success!!

Hi POLKADOT . . . from a fellow Canadian (although just about as far away from you as possible ). . . just hang in here for a while and you will get the hang of things. We do have a Crazy Canuks Cluck Club . . . http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=130196 . . . hope to see you over there from time to time.

Hi MMGARCIA . . . BIG for you, too . . . and wow do I know what you mean. I remember my twenties when I always complained about not being able to get below 125. Oh baby, look at me now. Never fear, there's lots of great support around here -- together we can all do this.

Hi Jay. I am new too. I think the support here will be great for both of us. I am kinda doing the weight watcher/calorie thing on my own. Good Luck to you. Maybe after a while your girlfriend will try it too. If not, don't worry, do it for you!
