Hi!

I'm new here. I've tried and failed many times to lose weight. But the only thing I've succeeded in doing was to gain all the weight back, plus an extra five pounds.

However this time, I feel that it's different. I don't want another diet. I want a lifestyle change. I finally really feel ready. All the other times, I was simply depressed and I wanted to run away from my weight. I wanted a magic pill that would take all my problems away. Luckily, I'm not looking for that anymore.

I want to be vocal about my successes and my efforts, as well as my struggles and my failures. I don't have a support system where I live now. I moved away from my hometown and I don't really know a lot of people here. I'm hopping to find a connection on this site with other people who want to make a change in their lives.

Thanks!

Welcome Kaethus!

Sounds like you've got your head in the right place. It's amazing to me how that voice of reason can just enter my mind and I'm in the right state of mind to make it happen. So many times before, I've done it the wrong way, for the wrong reasons. Like you, I also feel like this is the right time. You're definitely in the right place. This board has been exactly the kind of support that I always lacked. I hope you'll enjoy the journey you're going on and welcome aboard!!!

. . . you are definitely on the right track this time -- diets do not work -- by their very nature they tend to imply that it is something you do for a short period of time. You have to make a lifestyle change. Good Luck , chickie . . . we are all here for you . . .
