Default Hello all :)

Hey everyone,

I'm new here, though not new to trying to lose weight lol. I have been floating around looking at the forum for a long time but felt ready to really get into it

Well, i have like 90lbs to lose which is so much it seems almost impossible but i want it so badly, i just have to do it! I have been unhappy about my weight since forever but now the fact that i have this much to lose has really caused me to miss out on a lot! Even things like visiting my family (i am a student away from home) scares me! I don't want to see them to hear "you haven't lost any weight!". I also am a bit scared to go out full stop if i'm honest, though i've never really been really picked out for my weight, it is the one thing i am most terrified of. Going outside shouldn't be something that I am scared to do! So, I have one month til i am 21! I want to start my 21st year on a high so am going to do this this time.

I am postive now and i hope to keep this going!!

Thank you for reading, if you got through it all

Jessica x

Hi Jessica & Welcome to 3FC =)

If 90 pounds seems impossible... how about just losing 5 pounds?

Long-term goals are excellent, but we also have to reward ourselves for short-term and mini-goals. One positive step at a time, we'll achieve what we set out to do.

While you're the one who has to make the choices, everyone at 3FC can help support you on the way.

You can do this!
