Smile New Guy Here :-)

I just thought I would make a quick thread and say hi to everyone, I have been looking for ages to find a good motivating forum for losing weight and I believe I have found it. I look forward to getting to know the people on here, I started my diet and workout regime last week and managed to lose 6 pound (yay) I'm currently in week 2 and hope for another loss of some kind.

I don't know what else to put so I'll bring it to an end there.

Thanks.

Cool and welcome. I too am new to this forum. Been a member for a couple of weeks. So far it's been very supportive and engaging. Nice to meet you.

Thumbs up Welcome 1Hope

1Hope - and Congrats on those six pounds lost forever.

It's always great to have another male on the site. There are a bunch of us, posting about. (It's not easy to tell gender by the Avatar's.)

Have you already chosen your eating plan and your exercise plan?

Feel free to explore the different Forums; folks tend to find one group that appeals and get to know a subset of the 149,000 registered users.

Look forward to seeing you about.

I love the way you've phrased this - any loss, no matter its size, is worth celebrating.

Thanks to everyone for the welcomes and words of support and kindness, I look forward to posting more as I get some confidence.

It motivates me just seeing these weight loss tickers some of you have, congrats to you all.

Thanks very much, I was a bit apprehensive at the start as I had a feeling that this might be a female only forum haha but thought I'd give it a shot and I'm glad I did. I look forward to starting my journey with you guys and girls.

My eating plan is protein, protein and more protein along with power 90 by Tony Horton and my own twist of extra exercise, so far I'm really getting into it and enjoying it but this isn't my first rodeo (unfortunately) lol.

That statement is very true, no matter the number its still a step in the right direction and worth a pat on the back.
