Default Aloha!

Aloha and hello all!

To be honest, I have never been on 3FC site or forum before, but I am looking for a positive community and support with the physical and mental health changes I have been working on for the last couple of months. I have a long history of being overweight from being a little kid through college, when I struggled with an eating disorder, lost a lot of weight in very unhealthy ways, then got into recovery and gained it all back.

For many years after that I did not feel "safe" to focus on my weight, eating habits, and exercise because it was triggering for me, but over the last several months I have been doing a lot of mental work and now I'm ready to work on my physical health.

As for my day to day life, I work more than full time (about 50-60 hours/week) on the graveyard shift, and I live with my boyfriend of 11 years and my Golden Retriever in Honolulu. I have recently gotten back into yoga which I love, and started on a meal alternative called Huel which has helped TREMENDOUSLY with my ability to work with a calorie deficit without the triggering struggle of feeling hungry and desperate all the time (I don't sell it or anything--so hopefully its ok to talk about here??). I have also just finally worked up the courage to go to my first beginner's class at CrossFit, which I have wanted to do for many years, but was always too self-conscious to try.

My goal is to get to the center of my healthy BMI range for my height and to increase my strength and endurance so I can be better at the things I like to do (hiking, backpacking, etc), and I have a concrete goal of trekking the Inca Trail for 5 days to Machu Picchu in Peru in September!! I want to be healthy and strong and do it in the RIGHT way so I can maintain when I reach my goal weight.

Since it is my first day, I am too sure how to use the forum appropriately, as I was hoping to start a diet/progress blog/diary, but it seems that blogs are no longer available? Please let me know if there is an appropriate place for that type of thread here! I would also like to know if you all have suggestions of the best forums here for me to participate based on my background and goals.

Mahalos!
