Default *gulp* Hello there!!

Hi everyone!

Well, I'm Hopeful (literally lol) and am excited to become a member here.

I'm 24 and I've feel like I've been unhappy for too long. Reason being--my weight. I've gained alot since graduating college (stressful job). I'm at my heaviest at around 240 lbs with my height being 5'10".

I feel like this is the time in my life that I should be enjoying, yet I'm not cuz of this weight. It's holding me back in sooooo many ways.

Recently, I've tried many times to get more active and watch what I eat, but it's lasted maybe a week max. I go all or nothing. Either I will eat very junky and bad OR I will eat nothing but salad. I'm getting absolutely nowhere!

I'm gonna try again, and I hope with all my heart, that I am successful this time so I can start enjoying my life and begin moving forward.

Soo, looking forward to getting to know you guys and supporting each other thru this time in our lives.

Hi there! I just joined WW at work this morning and 3fc a few minutes ago.

I'm excited and hopeful.

I can't wait until I've got a cute little weight tracker like you guys!

Hey there HopefulAgain. I'm new here today as well. Your young and just keep telling yourself you can do it! Set small mini goals so that they will be more easy to obtain as you go (thats what I am gonna do). Looks as if there are LOTS of great people here.

Welcome to 3FC! I'm glad you're here!! Surf around and settle in! We have subforums based on age, food plan, exercise and more!

Check out the 20 something forum!

For me, the secret to success this time was to kick the perfectionist mentality to the curb. It doesn't have to be all or nothing. Small changes add up over time and success begets success. We all stumble, but for successful weight loss, we have to pick ourselves up and keep moving forward.

Best of luck to you!
