Default new here

Hi new to this whole thing. So let me get started i'm 22 years old. Been struggling with me weight since I was younger. My weight has led me to be very self conscious, I have very low self esteem. From feeling this way I know its keeping me back from being more out going,I tend to keep to myself. I want to change become healthier and gain more confidence in myself. I'm lost don't know where to start, would like some one talk to help with process. Not sure if I can talk to people around me about this not sure they will understand.

Hey vcvelez! I'm new too. I'm 21 and just got put on thyroid killing medicine a few months ago. Now I don't really have a metabolism so weight gain is a big problem. These forums have been super helpful! You're definitely in the right place.
