Default Hello!

Hi everyone!
I first joined the site at the end of last year, but today is the first day I've posted anything.

So, a litle bit about myself. My name's Caitlin, and I live in Florida. I gained roughly 40 pounds over the course of a year due to medication (which I am now no longer taking) and am working to get that 40 off, plus a bit more, in time for getting married next year.

I've tried Atkins, the Cabbage Soup diet (Ick.), Slim Fast, and now Calorie Counting, which is working. Finally!

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you all, and maybe getting some support that I'm obviously not going to get from my family.

Have a great day!
Caitlin

Caitlin,

It sounds like you have a mother who cares, but just doesn't know how to show it. Do not let her negativity effect you (easier said than done, I know).

I think you have plenty of time to look how you want to at your wedding - absolutely fabulous!

I noticed to that many of the "diets" out there are unrealistic because you can't sustain them for the rest of your life. Calorie counting has also been working for me.

Good luck!

-Liz.

Sorry you have to deal with a mother like that. Many people here have some family &/or friends who are the opposite of supportive. I hope that you'll find what you need here around 3FC. It seems like you're doing this for yourself, which is wonderful! So post more often Let us all get to know & support you. You can do this!!!

Best of success!!!
